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. High Power III-Nitride Heterojunction Field-Effect Effect Transistor Development

    SBC: III-N Technology, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The research proposed here is built on the recent successful fabrication of metal oxide semiconductor heterjunction field effect transistors (MOS-HFETs) based on AlGaN/GaN heterostructures with very high drain-current-driving and gate-control capabilitiesas well as unprecedented high breakdown voltages by the P.I.s research group at Kansas State University. III-nitride HFETs have great promises i ...

  2. Aging Resistant Ceramics for Total Hip Arthroplasty

    SBC: Amedica Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Zirconia bio-ceramics (e.g. Prozyr) have the highest toughness and strength compared to other bio-ceramics such as alumina (e.g. Biolox) or zirconia-toughened alumina (Biolox-Delta). However, as highlighted by the recent recall of St. Gobain zirconia heads, a critical need remains to develop bio-ceramics with both significantly reduced wear characteristics and ...

  3. Ultraviolet Light Devices for Vitamin D

    SBC: APOLLO LIGHT SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Vitamin D deficiency is now recognized as a significant health problem for middle-aged and older adults. Vitamin D deficiency exacerbates osteoporosis and causes the bone disease, osteomalacia. Vitamin D deficiency increases risk of skeletal fractures. It is well known that the ultraviolet B portion of the solar spectrum is responsible for the cutaneous product ...

  4. Portable Signal Identification Training

    SBC: APPLIED SIGNAL TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    A unique approach to the problem of portable signal identification training (PSIT) is proposed through the use of an integrated signals database, training software, and the re-use of operator interface software. Two training scenarios are addressed:standalone training mode and transmit training mode. The proposed approach is based entirely on COTS hardware. The approach also minimizes the hardw ...

  5. Motion Planning for Omni-Directional Vehicles

    SBC: Autonomous Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Intelligent, maneuverable, autonomous vehicles will play a critical role in future Army systems.Key to the success of these systems will be their ability to quickly reach goal locations by traversing through unknown, unstructured or even de-structured environments. This proposal addresses how Omni-directional capability can be best exploited throughcustomized planning and control. A hierarchical p ...

  6. Graphic Displays to Support Treatment of Medical Emergencies

    SBC: Axon Medical Inc            Topic: N/A

    We plan to develop and refine a device (Basic Life Support System, BLSS) and a just-in-time training procedure for a flight crewmember who must administer cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). In Phase I, we developed a computerized graphical display for CPR procedures. Volunteers using the display removed an airway obstruction and stabilized the patient in 10.9 minutes compared to 13.8 minutes fo ...

  8. Miniature, Autonomous Electrochemical Multisensors

    SBC: BIPOLAR TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    There is an increased need for sensors to monitor environmental conditions, that are not dependent on outside power. Remote sensors are used for this purpose, but they either require wiring to a power source or periodic maintenance to replace batteries. The difficulties with each approach severely limit the ability to obtain reliable information on environmental conditions. The purpose of this wor ...

  9. Miniature Hybrid Power Supplies for Enclosed Spaces

    SBC: BIPOLAR TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    The US Army needs hybrid power supplies to allow autonomous operation of electronic devices, that can extract energy from its environment in a variety of forms, store it temporarily , and then release it as needed. The power supply must have longevity,operate in a wide temperature range, and withstand high shear rates and pressure. It also must be adaptable to different electrical requirements, ...

  10. Flow Control and Operation Monitoring System for Individual Spray Nozzles

    SBC: Capstan Ag Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Agricultural spray equipment operators typically cannot monitor all nozzles along the boom. Clogged or malfunctioning nozzles produce undesirable spraying results. This project is designed to lead directly to a useful product, namely, a single-nozzle monitoring unit for agricultural spray applications. The monitoring capabilities of the system will allow more efficient, reli ...
