The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. RADIATION-PROCESSED HIGH-ENERGY-DENSITY CAPACITOR DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: John R. Bayless Co            Topic: N/A

    THE AVAILABILITY OF ENERGY STORAGE CAPACITORS WITH HIGH ENERGY DENSITIES (>>1 KJ/KG) IS CRITICAL FOR MANY PULSED POWER APPLICATIONS. CONVENTIONAL CAPACITOR DESIGNS, AS WELL AS THOSE CURRENTLY BEING DEVELOPED, USE LAMINATED ASSEMBLIES WHICH ARE IMPREGNATED WITH LIQUIED DIELECTRICS. HOWEVER, SINCE THE DIELECTRIC STRENGTH OF LIQUIED IS GENERALLY MUCH LESS THAN FOR SOLIDS, THE MAXIMUM OOPERATING ELECT ...

  2. A TIME-RESOLVED HARD X-RAY SPECTROMETER

    SBC: BERKELEY RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    FOR TESTING OF ELECTRONICS IT IS IMPORTANT HOW THE X-RAY ENERGY SPECTRUM FROM A BREMSSTRAHLUNG FLASH X-RAY SIMULATOR CHANGES WITH TIME. HOWEVER, ONLY THE TIME-INTEGRATED SPECTRUM CAN BE MEASURED CONVENIENTLY, USING DIFFERENTIALLY FILTERED TLD'S. THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP A TIME-DEPENDENT VERSION OF A DIFFERENTIALLY FILTERED SPECTROMETER, BY REPLACING THE TLD'S WITH PHOTOCONDUCTIVE ELEMENTS SUCH ...

  3. 8-LB CHARGE HOB EXPERIMENT REPORT

    SBC: CARPENTER RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    PHASE I PROPOSES TO GATHER THE DATA AND DISCRIPTIVE INFORMATION FOR A 28-SHOT SET OF EXPERIMENTS MADE IN THE EARLY 1970'S TO MEASURE HIGH OVERPRESSURE AIRBLAST FROM 8-LB CHARGES OF PBX-9404, TO PREPARE A WORK PLAN AND PROCEDURES FOR COMPLETING THE DATA PROCESSING FROM THE EXPERIMENTS, CHECKOUT THE PROCEDURES WITH SAMPLE ANALYSES, AND TO PREPARE A COST ESTIMATE FOR PHASE II. THE COMPLETION OF PHASE ...

  4. FREE-AIR BLAST MEASUREMENTS FOR CAVITY UGT

    SBC: CARPENTER RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A PHASE I SBIR STUDY IS PROPOSED TO DETERMINE ANALYTICALLY THE FEASIBILITY OF MEASURING THE FREE-AIR (UNREFLECTED) AIRBLAST WAVEFORMS FROM A NUCLEAR BURST IN AN UNDERGROUND CAVITY. SUCH DATA WOULD BE USEFUL FOR EVALUATING MEASUREMENTS TO BE MADE OF THE AIRBLAST IN THE REGION OF BLAST RELECTION FROM THE CAVITY FLOOR AND WALL. THE STUDY WILL CONSIDER WELL-PROVEN PIEZOELECTRIC AND RESISTIVE TECHNIQUE ...

  5. A TECHNICAL HYPERTEXT SYSTEM

    SBC: Horizons Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HORIZONS TECHNOLOGY, INC., (HTI) PROPOSES TO EXAMINE THE BENEFITS OF APPLYING HYPERTEXT, EXPERT SYSTEM, AND MICROCOMPUTER TECHNOLOGIES TO INCREASE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING AND COMPUTATIONAL AIDS (CAP) AND BY INCREASING THE USABILITY OF REFERENCE DOCUMENTATION DESCRIBING COMPLEX NUCLEAR WEAPON EFFECTS PHENOMENOLOGY. A HYPERTEXT DOCUMENT ALLOWS THE USER TO EASILY ACCESS DIFFERENT TY ...

  6. THE PHYSICS OF WAVE GENERATION FROM BURSTS AT THE UPPER CRITICAL DEPTH

    SBC: Pacific-sierra Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    DETONATION OF EXPLOSIVES AT THE UPPER CRITICAL DEPTH (UCD) CAN GENERATE WATER SURFACE WAVES AT GREAT DISTANCES THAT ARE MORE THAN TWICE THOSE FROM A DEEPER DETONATION. EVIDENCE FOR THE UCD PHENOMENON IS ENTIRELY EMPIRICAL. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL EXPAND ON AN INNOVATIVE PHYSICAL EXPLANATION OF THE UCD, AND WILL PROVIDE QUANTITATIVE PREDICTIONS IN SUPPORT OF A CORRESPONDING UCD FOR NUCLEAR EXPLO ...

  7. THE USE OF AI TECHNOLOGY TO EXPLOIT OPERATIONAL PLANNING AND TACTICAL INTELLIGENCE SYSTEMS

    SBC: Systems Control Technology,            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE OPERATIONAL PLANNING AND TARGETING PROBLEMS OF A COMMANDER IN A TACTICAL OR MIXED TACTIACL/NUCLEAR THEATER. IN SUCH A THEATER, BOTH THE FRIENDLY AND ENEMY FORCES WILL POSSESS HIGHLY MOBIL WEAPONS SYSTEMS. IN ORDER TO USE HIS WEAPONS EFFECTIVELY, THE OPERATIONAL COMMANDER MUST BE ABLE TO TRACK, TARGET, AND STRIKE THE ENEMY'S MOVING FORCES. SOPHISICATED INTELLIGENCE GATHE ...

  8. THERE EXISTS A REQUIREMENT TO DEVELOP AN UNDERSTANDING OF AND A TECHNIQUE FOR SIMULATING THE THERMAL LAYER ASSOCIATED WITH A NEAR SURFACE NUCLEAR EVENT.

    SBC: DYNAMICS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THERE EXISTS A REQUIREMENT TO DEVELOP AN UNDERSTANDING OF AND A TECHNIQUE FOR SIMULATING THE THERMAL LAYER ASSOCIATED WITH A NEAR SURFACE NUCLEAR EVENT. A FLUID PHYSICS BASED MODEL OF THE THERMAL LAYER HAS BEEN DEVELOPED BY DYNAMICS TECHNOLOGY AND A SIMULATION TECHNIQUE HAS BEEN PROPOSED. A KEY ASPECT OF THE THERMAL LAYER MODEL, THE CHARACTERISTIC VERTICAL LENGTH SCALE, HAS BEEN INFERRED FROM NUCL ...

  9. AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO PRODUCE MULTI-MEGARAD HARD ELECTRONIC DEVICES FOR SPACEBORNE APPLICATIONS HAS BEEN PROPOSED, WHEREBY JUNCTION FIELD EFFECT TRANSISTORS (JFET) ARE DEVELOPED USING SILICON-ONINSULATOR (SOI) TECHNOLOGY.

    SBC: Electro-optek Corp            Topic: N/A

    AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO PRODUCE MULTI-MEGARAD HARD ELECTRONIC DEVICES FOR SPACEBORNE APPLICATIONS HAS BEEN PROPOSED, WHEREBY JUNCTION FIELD EFFECT TRANSISTORS (JFET) ARE DEVELOPED USING SILICON-ONINSULATOR (SOI) TECHNOLOGY. THE MULTIMEGARAD HARDNESS IS DERIVED FROM THE 'BURIED' CHANNEL OF THE JFET DEVICES AND THE REDUCTION OF ELECTROMIGRATION OF TRAPPED AND INDUCED CHARGES OF THE WELL-MATCHED SI ...
