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. Identifying Meaningful Indicators of Collective Allostatic Load from Low-Cost, Wearable Sensors

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: SB172006

    A teams collective allostatic load (CAL) is an unobservable theoretical construct, defined as the accumulated wear and tear due to a teams and its members repeated exposure to stress and strain.Stottler Henke, collaborating with Johns Hopkins University, proposes to explore the impact of CAL on individual and team performance over time.Affinity will advance the state-of-the-art in three ways.First ...

  2. INTERCEPT/DATA KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT

    SBC: Advanced Decision Systems            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT KNOWLEDGE-BASED SYSTEMS REQUIRE SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE STRUCTURES TO SUPPORT THEIR PROCESSING AND ARE UNABLE TO PROPERLY UTILIZE OR INTERFACE WITH CONVENTIONAL DATA BASES. ADS HAS DEVELOPED AN INTERCEPT MANAGEMENT FUNCTION WHICH CAN INTERFACE TO A CONVENTIONAL THREAT DATABASE TO SUPPORT C3 COUNTERMEASURES OPERATIONS. THE INTERCEPT MANAGEMENT FUNCTION ESTABLISHES THE RELATIVE VALUE OF DATA I ...

  3. EQUIPMENT TO TEST AND DEVELOP R.P.V. AERODYNAMIC ENHANCEMENT DEVICES

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PERFORMANCE OF REMOTE PILOTED VEHICLES (RPV'S) CAN BE SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED BY PASSIVE DEVICES FOR CONTROLLING THE TURBULENT BOUNDARY LAYER. THESE DEVICES RANGE FROM SURFACE DEVICES FOR DRAG REDUCTION TO VORTEX GENERATORS FOR SEPARATION CONTROL. CURRENTLYTHERE IS LITTLE APPLICATION OF THESE DEVICES DUE TO A LACK OF CONFIDENCE IN THEM, AND LIMITED PERFORMANCE DATA. VORTEX GENERATORS ARE ONLY U ...

  4. HIGH POWER DENSITY COMPONENTS FOR ELECTROMAGNETIC LAUNCHERS

    SBC: Amercom Inc            Topic: N/A

    A SIX-MONTH FEASIBILITY STUDY TO INVESTIGATE THE USE OF CERAMIC AND METAL MATRIX COMPOSITE MATERIALS FOR THE CONDUCTING RAILS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC RAIL GUNS IS PROPOSED. CERTAIN ELECTRICAL, MECHANICAL AND THERMAL PROPERTIES OF THE MATERIAL WILL BE DETERMINED AND MICROSTRUCTURAL FEATURES OF THE COMPOSITE EVALUATED. SAMPLE RAIL MATERIALS WILL BE EXPOSED TO THE PLASMA ARC ENVIRONMENTS FOUND IN RAILGUNS ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF AN INTEGRATED SYSTEM FOR THE WIND TUNNEL MEASUREMENT OF AIR VELOCITY TEMPERATURE AND DENSITY

    SBC: Analatom Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    NEW VELOCITY MEASUREMENT TECHNIQUES, WHICH USE ARF LASER INDUCED FLUORESCENCE (LIF) IN CO2 AND IN CO FORMED BY THE LASER, ARE PROPOSED.THE NEW TECHNIQUES WILL COMBINE WITH OTHER LIF TECHNIQUES, UNDER DEVELOPMENT BY US, WHICH MEASURE DENSITY AND TEMPERATURE TO FORM WITH THEM AN INTEGRATED SYSTEM FOR SINGLE PULSE MEASUREMENT OF THREE INDEPENDENT FLOW PARAMETERS. ALL THREE TECHNIQUES ARE MOST SUITED ...

  7. FEASIBILITY OF UTILIZING HIGH LEVEL KNOWLEDGE TO AID SPEECH RECOGNITION IN CONTEXT ACTIVATED DEVICES

    SBC: Computer Cognition            Topic: N/A

    MOST AI SYSTEMS CURRENTLY BEING DEVELOPED WILL BENEFIT FROM SPEECH RECOGNITION CAPABILITIES. SOME ARCHITECTURES BEING CONSIDERED ARE BETTER SUITED THAN OTHERS TO PERMIT THE UTILIZATION OF "HIGHER-LEVEL" KNOWLEDGE TO IMPROVE SPEECH RECOGNITION QUALITY OR EFFICIENCY. ONE SUITABLE ARCHITECTURE IS THE CONTEXT ACTIVATED MEMORY DEVICE (CAMD, PATENT PENDING). THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL INVESTIGATE WAYS I ...

  8. TRANSONIC FLOW FIELD MEASUREMENT SCHEME DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Deacon Research            Topic: N/A

    LITTLE INSTRUMENTATION IS AVAILABLE TO MEASURE THE FLOW PARAMETERS OF TRANSONIC OR SUPERSONIC FLOWS IN WIND TUNNELS OR COMBUSTION CHAMBERS. COMMERCIAL LASER DOPPLER VELOCIMETERS BECOME INCREASINGLY INACCURATE FOR HIGH MACH NUMBERS BECAUSE THEY RELY ON SCATTERING FROM LARGE PARTICLES WHICH CANNOT FOLLOW THE FLOW THROUGH TURBULENCE OR SHOCKS. THE TESTING OF TRANSONIC AIRFOILS OR SCRAMJET ENGINES REQ ...

  9. 87-06: RADAR CROSS SECTION CALCULATIONS

    SBC: DYNAMIC ANALYSIS & TESTING ASSOC.            Topic: N/A

    IN PHASE I, A STUDY TO THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A STUDY TO ESTABLISH TECHNICAL MERIT AND FEASIBILITY OF EXPANDING THE CURRENT SOLID MODELING VISUALIZATION ALGORITHMS, USED IN VIEWING OBJECTS ILLUMINATED BY LIGHT, TO VIEWING OBJECTS REPRESENTED BY THEIR UHF FREQUENCY RADIATION AND SCATTERING. THIS WOULD ALLOW A DISPLAY OF THE 3D RADAR CROSS SECTION WITH COLOR GRAPHICS REPRESENTING DIFFERING INTENSIT ...

  10. RECONFIGURABLE DISTRIBUTED COMPUTER SYSTEM FOR ON-BOARD SATELLITE

    SBC: Expert-ease Systems            Topic: N/A

    A PARTICULARLY CHALLENGING AREA FOR THE APPLICATION OF MILITARY COMPUTER SYSTEMS IS THOSE CASES IN WHICH THE SYSTEM MUST OPERATE AUTONOMOUSLY IN A HOSTILE OR REMOTE ENVIRONMENT FOR MANY YEARS. ONBOARD SATELLITE COMPUTER SYSTEMS ARE A GOOD EXAMPLE OF SUCH AN APPLICATION. THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL RESULT IN A NEW GENERATION OF RECONFIGURABLE, DISTRIBUTED COMPUTING SYSTEMS WHOSE ARCHITECTURE CAN BE AD ...
