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. INTELLIGENT CONTROL OF SEMICONDUCTOR MANUFACTURING PROCESSES

    SBC: 3d Informatics            Topic: N/A

    AN INTELLIGENT EQUIPMENT ARCHITECTURE FOR CLUSTER AND IN-SITU SEMICONDUCTOR MANUFACTURING PROCESSES IS PROPOSED. IT HAS TWO COMPONENTS: (1) MANUFACTURING EQUIPMENT - EQUIPMENT HARDWARE AND SENSORS, AND (2) INTELLIGENT EXPERT WORKSTATION - A HYBRID AI/NEURAL NETWORK EXPERT SYSTEM. THE INTELLIGENT CONTROL SCHEME IN THE INTELLIGENT EXPERT SYSTEM HAS THE FOLLOWING FEATURES: (1) EQUIPMENT/PROCESS MODEL ...

  2. MINIATURIZED THREE-DIMENSIONAL LASER RANGE FINDER FOR ROBOTIC MANIPULATION OF INDUSTRIAL OBJECTS

    SBC: Advanced Technology Transfer            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP A MINIATURIZED 3-D LASER RANGE FINDER SYSTEM WHICH IS INTEGRATED INTO A ROBOT GRIPPER AND CAN BE UTILIZED FOR VISUAL PERCEPTION AND MANIPULATION OF OBJECTS IN UNSTRUCTURED ENVIRONMENTS. SUCH A CONFIGURATION WILL HAVE AHIGH DEGREE OF MOBILITY AND ALLOW FOR THE ARBITRARY PLACEMENT OF THE SENSOR AT DIFFERENT VIEW POINTS AS NEEDED TO FACILITATE THE ...

  3. VOICE-AUGMENTED TELEPHONE ACCESS FOR QUADRIPLEGICS

    SBC: Aicomm Inc            Topic: N/A

    SPINAL CORD INJURY CAUSES DRAMATIC CHANGES IN A PERSON'S ABILITY TO FUNCTION PHYSICALLY, SEXUALLY, AND VOCATIONALLY IN SOCIETY. WITH PROPER REHABILITATION, MANY PARAPLEGICS AND SOME QUADRIPLEGICS ARE ABLE TO LIVE AND FUNCTION WITH A HIGH DEGREE OF INDEPENDENCE. THOSE WITH HIGHER LEVELS OF PARALYSIS (C-5 AND ABOVE) CURRENTLY MUST DEPEND ON FAMILY, MEDICAL PERSONNEL, AND A VARIETY OF ASSISTIVE DEVIC ...

  4. PROBABILISTIC STRUCTURAL MECHANICS RESEARCH FOR PARALLEL PROCESSING COMPUTERS

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

    THIS RESEARCH EFFORT WILL INVESTIGATE THE USE OF PARALLEL PROCESSING COMPUTERS TO SOLVE PROBLEMS IN PROBABILISTIC STRUCTURAL MECHANICS (PSM) THAT ARISE IN THE ASSESSMENT OF RELIABILITY OF COMPLEX AEROSPACE STRUCTURES. PSM PROBLEMS, SOLVED BY MONTE CARLO SIMULATION, ARE INHERENTLY PARALLEL AND ARE IDEALLY SUITED FOR SOLUTION ON PARALLEL COMPUTERS. RELATIVELY LITTLE RESEARCH, HOWEVER, HAS BEEN CONDU ...

  7. MANUFACTURING METHODS FOR ADVANCED NON-CONTACTING SEAL MATERIALS

    SBC: Burton Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    SEALING SYSTEMS FOR ADVANCED MACHINES SUCH AS GAS TURBINES AND AIRCRAFT ACCESSORIES MUST SURVIVE INCREASED SPEEDS, TEMPERATURES AND PRESSURES. REDUCED ENERGY CONSUMPTION AND INCREASED LIFE ARE DESIRED. STANDARD POSITIVE CONTACT SEALSCANNOT MEET THESE REQUIREMENTS, SO LIFT-OFF DESIGNS ARE NEEDED. THE BEST SOLUTION FOR THESE IS TO INSCRIBE SPIRAL OR HERRINGBONE GROOVES INTO THE SEAL FACES. NEWLY DEV ...

  9. RADIATION AND ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE EFFECTS ON SILICON CARBIDE BASED ELECTRONICS

    SBC: CREE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    SILICON CARBIDE (SIC) IS A SEMICONDUCTOR THAT POSSESSES A UNIQUE COMBINATION OF PHYSICAL AND ELECTRONIC PROPERTIES THAT MAKE DEVICES PRODUCED FROM THIS MATERIAL INTRINSICALLY RADIATION AND ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE (EMP) RESISTANT. IN ADDITION, SIC DEVICES CAN OPERATE AT VERY HIGH TEMPERATURES AND FREQUENCIES AT HIGH POWER. RECENT RESEARCHON SIC HAS RESULTED IN THE FABRICATION OF METAL-OXIDE-SEMICONDU ...

  10. DEVELOPMENT OF SILICON CARBIDE METAL-SEMICONDUCTOR FIELD-EFFECT TRANSISTORS FOR HIGH POWER OPERATION AT HIGH TEMPERATURES

    SBC: CREE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    SILICON CARBIDE POSSESSES A UNIQUE COMBINATION OF PROPERTIES THAT ALLOW SIMULTANEOUS HIGH TEMPERATURE AND HIGH POWER OPERATION OF ELECTRONIC DEVICES MADE FROM THIS MATERIAL. THE CUBIC FORM OF SIC (BETA) HAS A WIDE BANDGAP (2.2 EV @ 27 DEG C), WHICH THEORETICALLY GIVES A MAXIMUM OPERABLE TEMPERATURE OF 925 DEG C. ALPHA SIC (6H) HAS AN EVEN WIDER BANDGAP OF 2.86 EV @ 27 DEG C, GIVING A MAXIMUM OPERA ...
