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 Ultrasonic Wireless Sensor Network for Data Communication and Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Sensor networks embedded on structures, such as pipes, bridges, railways, aircraft wings and fuselage, among others, are required to transfer data related to the health of the structure. This data is typically sent to a central location where it can be processed, displayed, and analyzed. Typical Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) uses embedded ultrasonic transducers exclusively for non-destructive ...

  2. Efficient cFS-based On-board Lamberts Solution for DSMs

    SBC: Advanced Space LLC            Topic: T11

    Distributed Spacecraft Missions (DSM) architectures provide unique scientific and programmatic benefits including multipoint in-situ measurements, multi-angle viewpoints, and improved understanding of the connections between separately measured phenomena and their time variations. However, these missions impose significant operational demands on ground tracking resources and mission operators alik ...

  3. Heterogeneous Silicon Photonics OFDR Sensing System

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: T8

    Luna will team with Dr. John Bowers of UCSB to continue development of an Optical Frequency Domain Reflectometry (OFDR) system-on-chip using heterogeneous silicon photonics to enable a minimal weight structural health monitoring system. This system-on-chip will be the building block for distributed sensing interrogation systems that are the size of a deck of playing cards. This lightweight, rugged ...

  4. Electrical Power from Thermal Energy Scavenging in High Temperature Environments

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: T3

    Physical Sciences Inc. and Purdue University propose to develop a novel approach to scavenging heat from high intensity thermal environments encountered during space missions and converting this thermal power to electrical power at high efficiency.  Examples include extremely hot heat shields during vehicle entry into planetary atmospheres (Mars/Venus probes) and during high speed ascent thro ...

  5. THE DEVELOPMENT OF EXTREMELY FAST RISC-BASED ALUS FOR CHARACTER STRING PROCESSING

    SBC: Accelerated Processors Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  6. TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT FOR A LARGE-SCALE, SPACE-BASED, COMPLIANT MANIPULATOR

    SBC: Adaptive Machine Technologies            Topic: N/A

    THE PERFORMANCE OF LARGE-SCALE, LIGHTWEIGHT, SPACE-BASED MANIPULATORS IS CURRENTLY LIMITED BY THE AVAILABLE CONTROL SYSTEM TECHNOLOGIES. TO ACHIEVE HIGH PERFORMANCE WITH A SPACE-BASED MANIPULATOR, A CONTROL SYSTEM IS REQUIRED WHICH DOES NOT UNDERGO PERFORMANCE DEGRADATION DUE TO MANIPULATOR LINK FLEXURE. RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IN THE AREA OF COMPLIANT MANIPULATOR CONTROL HAS BEEN HINDERED BY TWO ...

  7. ROBOTIC WINDING IN A PLASMA SPRAY HIGH TEMPERATURE-VACUUM ENVIRONMENT

    SBC: ADC Acquisition Co. dba Automated Dynamics            Topic: N/A

    FABRICATION OF ADVANCED COMPOSITES INCLUDES MANY PROCESSES, SOME ARE AUTOMATED, OTHERS ARE ENTIRELY MANUAL. ROBOTIC WINDING SYSTEMS (ROWS) WAS INVENTED BY THE PRINCIPLEINVESTIGATOR IN AN ATTEMPT TO CREATE AN AUTOMATED TECHNIQUE OF LAYING UP PRE-IMPREGNATED MATERIAL AROUND A FORM WITH COMPLEX SHAPE. CONVENTIONAL WINDING EQUIPMENT REQUIRES THE MANDREL TO ROTATE WHILE THE MATERIAL IS DRAGGED ALONG TH ...

  8. UNIVERSAL END-EFFECTOR WITH TORQUE FEEDBACK FOR HAND VALVES

    SBC: ADC Acquisition Co. dba Automated Dynamics            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. DEVELOPMENT OF A THREE DIMENSIONAL VISION ALGORITHM FOR DIRECT TRANSFORMATION FROM IMAGE SPACE TO ROBOT JOINT SPACE

    SBC: Advanced Control Technologies            Topic: N/A

    A DIRECT TRANSFORMATION FROM IMAGE COORDINATES TO ROBOT JOINT COORDINATES WILL BE DEVELOPED TO SERVE AS THE BASIS FOR A BINARY VISION SYSTEM FOR SIX DEGREE OF FREEDOM ROBOT CONTROL. A SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION ALGORITHM WILL ENABLE THE SYSTEM TO BE USED AS A TURN-KEY SYSTEM WITH ANY ROBOT WHICH ACCEPTS JOINT COORDINATE INPUT. THE DIRECT TRANSFORMATION FROM IMAGE SPACE TO ROBOT JOINT SPACE WILL BE ACCO ...

  10. INTEGRATED MODELING TOOL FOR PERFORMANCE ENGINEERING OF COMPLEX COMPUTER SYSTEMS

    SBC: ADVANCED SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    DURING THE DEVELOPMENT OF COMPLEX COMPUTER SYSTEMS, PERFORMANCE ENGINEERING TECHNIQUES ARE OFTEN NOT APPLIED OR ARE MISAPPLIED WHICH RESULTS IN SYSTEMS THAT DO NOT MEET THESPECIFIED PERFORMANCE CRITERIA OR MUST UNDERGO COSTLY REDESIGNS. AN INTEGRATED COMPUTER SYSTEM MODELING LANGUAGE OVERCOMES THE DEFICIENCIES OR TRADITIONAL ANALYTIC AND SIMULATION MODELING TOOLS BY EXPLOITING THE STRENGTHS FROM B ...
