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. AN EVALUATION OF THE FEASIBILITY OF EXERCISE ON A TREADMILL IMMERSED IN COOL WATER FOR MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS PATIENTS, AND THE MODIFICATION OF THE TREADMILL EQUIPMENT TO ENHANCE SUCH EXERCISE.

    SBC: Aquaciser, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS PHASE I INVESTIGATION IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF MULITIPLE SCLEROSIS PATIENTS (MSP) TO PERFORM EXERCISE ON SPECIALLY MODIFIED TREADMILL IMMERSED IN COOL WATER (AQUACISER SYSTEM). THE AQUACISER SYSTEM WILL BEMODIFIED TO PROVIDE 48" (VS 40") OF WATER DEPTH, COOL (VS HOT) WATER FOR HEAT DISSIPATION AND PHYSICAL SUPPORT AP-PARATUS FOR MSP DURING VARIOUS EXERCISE INTENSITIES ...

  2. ON-LINE X-RAY INSPECTION OF MATERIALS AND STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS USING DISCRETE ELEMENT X-RAY DETECTORS FOR DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHIC...

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DISCRETE ELEMENT X-RAY DETECTORS DEVELOPED FOR MEDICAL COMPUTER TOMOGRAPHY ARE RECENTLY BEING APPLIED AS A DETECTION MEDIUM FOR INDUSTRIAL X-RAY RADIOGRAPHY. THE DETECTORS ARE DESIGNED WITH A WIDE DYNAMIC RANGE TO ACCOMMODATE THE MULTIPLE PATH DATA COLLECTION NECESSARY FOR COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY. IN THE STANDARD RADIOGRAPHIC INSPECTION MODE, THIS FEATURE ALLOWS THE EVALUATION OF A WIDE RANGE OF MATER ...

  3. HIGH SPEED, HIGH RESOLUTION DUAL-ENERGY CT

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE WELL KNOWN TECHNIQUE OF DUAL-ENERGY CT SCANNING SEPARATES MATERIALS WHOSE ABSORPTION ARE ENERGY DEPENDENT AND HAS THUS FAR BEEN PERFORMED ON MEDICAL CT SCANNER MODELS WITH SLOW SCAN TIMES AND LOW SPATIAL RESOLUTION. BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC. HAS DESIGNED A MEDICAL CT SCANNERWITH A SCAN TIME AS LITTLE AS 1 SECOND WITH CONTINUOUS BACK-TO-BACK SCANS USING A SLIP-RING AND HAVING SPATIAL RESOLUTIO ...

  4. DUAL ENERGY X-RAY TECHNIQUE FOR FOOD PROCESSING MEASUREMENTS

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO EXPLOIT DUAL ENERGY X-RAY MEASUREMENT TECH- NIQUE TO QUANTITATIVELY DETERMINE THE PRO PORTIONS OF TWO DIFFERENT MATERIALS IN A FOOD PROCESSING LINE AT CONVEYOR BELT SPEED. THE MAIN PROBLEM WITH A SIMPLECONVENTIONAL X-RAY INSPECTION SYSTEM IS THAT IT REQUIRES KNOWN MATERIAL THICKNESS BETWEEN THE X-RAY SOURCE AND DETEC-TOR ARRAY. OFTEN IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN KNOWN OR DEFINITIVE ...

  5. SPEECH-DRIVEN SLEEP APNEA SCREENING INSTRUMENT

    SBC: Bioinformatics Inc            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF AN INSTRUMENT TO SCREEN FOR OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA SYNDROME (SAS). THE INSTRUMENT'S OPERATION WILL BE BASED ON AN EXPERIMENTALLY OBSERVED AND PUBLISHED RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SLEEP APNEA AND SPEECH DISORDERS. THIS RELATIONSHIP IS OFTEN VISUALLY DETECTABLE IN THE SPECTROGRAM OF A PERSON'S SPEECH. THE SPECTROGRAM CAN BE CALCULATED IN A FEW SECONDS WITH ONL ...

  6. AN AUTOMATED SYSTEM FOR THE DEPOSITION OF HIGH T(C) SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILMS AND OTHER MULTI-COMPONENT OXIDE FILMS

    SBC: Corium Industries Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILMS WILL HAVE SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON A LARGE NUMBER OF MODERN TECHNOLOGIES, ESPECIALLY IN THE AREA OF ADVANCED MICROCIRCUITRY. ALTHOUGH SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILMS HAVE BEEN PREPARED BY A VARIETY OF METHODS, ALL OF THESE METHODS REQUIRE HIGH TEMPERATURE PROCESSING STEPS WHICH ARE INCOMPATIBLE WITH THE PRODUCTION OF HIGH DENSITY MICROCIRCUITRY, AND NO ...

  7. DEPOLARIZATION EFFECT OF RADOMES

    SBC: Defense Electromagnetic Analys            Topic: N/A

    THE PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A STATE-OF-THE-ART ANALYSIS AND COMPUTER CODE FOR THE DEPOLARIZATION EFFECT OF A RADOME. WE HAVE AN INNOVATIVE COMPUTATIONAL SCHEME IN PERFORMING THE PHYSICAL-OPTICS INTEGRATION OVER THE DOUBLY CURVED RADOME SURFACE THAT IS FAR SUPERIOR TO CONVENTIONAL METHODS. FURTHERMORE, WE HAVE ALREADY DONE SUBSTANTIAL PRELIMINARY WORK, AND ARE IN A POSITION TO DELIVER COMPUTER CODES ...

  8. ELECTROCHEMICAL GENERATION OF USEFUL CHEMICAL SPECIES FROM LUNAR MATERIALS

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROGRAM IS DIRECTED TOWARDS ELECTROCHEMICALLY CHARACTERIZING A UNIQUE HIGH TEMPERATURE ELECTROLYTIC CELL WHICH SIMULTANEOUSLY GENERATES OXYGEN GAS AND LIQUID LITHIUM USING THE SIMULATED LUNAR SILICATE MATERIAL DIOPSIDE (CAMGSI2O6) AS A MOLTEN SALT ELECTROLYTE INTO WHICHLITHIUM AND POTASSIUM IONS HAVE BEEN INTENTIONALLY ADDED. THE ELECTROLYTIC CELL UTILIZES THE OXYGEN VACANCY CONDUCTINGSOLID E ...
