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. INSTRUMENT FOR RADIATION TESTING/SCREENING ELECTRONIC DEVICES OVER THE DOD TEMPERATURE RANGE

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    A PHASE II PROGRAM IS PROPOSED LEADING TO THE DEVELOPMENT OFAN INSTRUMENT THAT PROVIDES AN ACCURATE, COST-EFFECTIVE CA- PABILITY FOR MAKING RADIATION TOTAL=DOSE MEASUREMENTS OVER THE TEMPERATURE RANGE OF -55 DEG C TO 200 DEG C. THE INSTRUMENT WOULD BE UNIQUELY SUITED FOR THE RADIATION TESTING AND SCREENING OF COMPLEX ELECTRONIC DEVICES, SUCH AS VHSIC TEST CHIPS AND INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, AS WELL AS ...

  2. ATMOSPHERIC EFFECTS OF A NUCLEAR EXCHANGE: MODIFICATION OF CHEMICAL COMPOSITIONS OPTICAL PROPERTIES AND CLIMATE

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    IN THE LAST TWO YEARS, THERE HAVE BEEN INCREASING CONCERNS ABOUT THE POTENTIALLY LARGE COOLING OF THE LAND SURFACE TEMPERATURE RESULTING FROM THE SOOT AND DUST INJECTED INTO THE ATMOSPHERE BY THE EXPLOSIONS AND SECONDARY FIRES FROM NUCLEAR EXCHANGES, THE SO-CALLED "NUCLEAR WINTER" SCENARIOS. HERE WE ARGUE THAT, IN ADDITION TO DUST AND SOOT, A LARGE NUMBER OF TRACE GASES (NO[X], H[2]0, HC, CH[4]) C ...

  3. BIAXIAL INTERFACE STRESS TRANSDUCER FOR HIGH OVERPRESSURES- DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DEFINITION OF THE STRUCTURE-MEDIA INTERACTION (SMI) LOADS ON A BURIED STRUCTURE IS ONE OF THE LARGEST SOURCES OF UNCERTAINTY IN ANALYZING THE SURVIVABILITY OF STRATEGIC STRUCTURES. ADVANCEMENT OF THE STATEOF-THE-ART IN THE MODELING OF SMI BEHAVIOR IS HAMPERED BY A LIMITED DATA BASE WHICH IS CONFINED TO OVERPRESSURES MUCH SMALLER THAN THOSE CURRENTLY OF INTEREST. THIS EFFORT PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AND ...

  4. FRATRICIDE EFFECTS ON ANTENNA BORESIGHT ERRORS

    SBC: Atss Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE GUIDANCE AND SURVEILLLANCE ACCURACIES OF ADVANCED AIR FORCE REENTRY SYSTEMS DEPEND ON ANTENNA WINDOW SHAPE CHANGE (OR ABLATION) AT THE TIME OF THE GUIDANCE UPDATE OR SURVEILLANCE FUNCTION. GUIDANCE UPDATE AND SURVEILLANCE OCCUR IN ALTITUDE REGIMES WHERE PRECURSOR DUST FIELDS CAN EXIST. DUST EROSION OF THE WINDOW WILL CAUSE BORESIGHT ERRORS AND SUBSEQUENT SYSTEM INACCURACIES. THE PURPOSE OF THE ...

  5. ANALYSIS OF HANE 0-10 SECOND MHD EMP

    SBC: AUSTIN RESEARCH ASSOCIATES            Topic: N/A

    MODELING OF THE AMBIENT AND PROMPT IONOSPHERIC REGIONS IN A THIN LAYER APPROXIMATION ALLOWS AN EFFICIENT METHOD OF DETERMINING THE TIME EVOLUTION, PROPAGATION, AND SIGNAL STRENGTH OF THE 0-10 SECOND MHD EMP ASSOCIATED WITH HIGH ALTITUDE NUCLEAR DETONATIONS.

  6. SNOB/GREG CALIBRATOR DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: CARPENTER RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS WORK ARE TO ESTABLISH THE DESIGN REQUIREMENTS, TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY A BASIC DESIGN, AND A COST DATA BASE FOR DESIGNING AND CONSTRUCTING A LOW COST BUT ADEQUATE CAPABILITY FOR CALIBRATING PRESSURE INSTRUMENTATION USED FOR MEASURING DUSTY BLAST FLOW. IN PARTICULAR SUCH A CALIBRATION FACILITY WOULD BE CAPABLE OF CALIBRATING SINGLE AND MULTIPLE SNOB/GREG PROBES AT THE FLOW SPEE ...

  7. ANALYSIS OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS EFFECTS ON STRATEGIC STRUCTURES

    SBC: Engineering & Economics Rsrch            Topic: N/A

    SUBSTANTIAL PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE IN RECENT YEARS TO DEVELOP AND VALIDATE MODELS WHICH CAN PREDICT THE PHYSICAL EFFECTS OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS ON STRATEGIC STRUCTURES. SIGNIFICANT UNCERTAINTIES REMAIN, HOWEVER, IN THE CONFIDENCE LEVELS ATTRIBUTABLE TO THESE PREDICTIVE CAPABILITIES. THIS APPROACH WOULD IDENTIFY AND PRIORITIZE THOSE ACTIVITIES, ALONG WITH THEIR ASSOCIATED BUDGETARY AND SCHEDULING CONSI ...

  8. DUSTY FLOW PRESSURE GAUGE DESIGN ANALYSIS

    SBC: Fluid Physics Ind.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROBLEM OF GAS DYNAMIC FLOW PROPERTY MEASUREMENT IN PARTICLE LADEN FLOWS IS ADDRESSED VIA AN ADVANCED NUMERICAL MODEL SIMULATION STUDY OF PRESSURE GAUGE RESPONSE. THE APPROACH UTILIZES A HIGH-ORDER ACCURATE NUMERICAL SOLUTION TECHNIQUE FOR TURBULENT TWO-PHASE FLOWS. GAUGES OF EXISTING DESIGN SUCH AS THE GREG/SNOB GAUGES WILL BE ANALYZED OVER A RANGE OF CLEAN AND DUSTY AIRBLAST FLOW ENVIRONMENT ...

  9. STOCHASTIC PARTICLE TURBULENT TWOPHASE FLOW ANALYSIS OF AERODYNAMIC SCOURING

    SBC: Fluid Physics Ind.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROBLEM OF AERODYNAMIC ENTRAINMENT OF PARTICULATE FROM FRANGIBLE MATERIALS HAS CONSIDERABLE GEOPHYSICAL, TECHNOLOGICAL, AND MILITARY SIGNIFICANCE. PROBLEMS SUCH AS SOIL EROSION, TERRESTRIAL AND PLANETARY DUST STORMS, COAL MINE SAFETY, JET OR DOWNWASH IMPINGEMENT, CHEMICAL PROCESS TECHNOLOGIES AND EXPLOSION GENERATED DUSTY BOUNDARY LAYERS ARE DEPENDENT ON THE PARTICLE SCOURING MECHANISM. THE EF ...

  10. NUCLEAR EFFECTS SIMULATION

    SBC: General Sciences, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL SET OF HIGHLY EXOTHERMIC AND ESSENTIALLY GASLESS (CONDENSED PHASE) REACTIONS WILL BE INVESTIGATED IN ORDER TO SELECT THE COMPOSITION WHICH PROVIDES THE MOST APPROPRIATE METHOD OF SIMULATING RADIANT FLUXES EQUIVALENT TO THOSE ENCOUNTERED IN NUCLEAR AIR BLASE ENVIRONMENTS. THE PROPOSED CONCEPT IS CAPABLE OF GENERATING PEAK TEMPERATURES IN EXCESS OF 3200 DEG K AND RADIATION FLUXES UP TO 200 C ...
