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. Missile Battery Damage Prediction Methodology

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

    Warhead design calculations and weapons effectiveness estimates require a methodology to predict the terminal ballistic structural response and the associated functional damage to operating missile batteries subjected to warhead fragment impacts at speeds up to 16,000 ft/sec. The objectives for the proposed Phase I study effort are to develop a candidate structural representation for the missile b ...

  2. Lighter-Than-Air Optical Platform

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

    A miniaturized lighter-than-air (LTA) unmanned air vehicle (UAV) is proposed as a low altitude, station keeping, optical instrumentation platform. The advanced airship design will be derived from parameters developed during the successful Small Aerostat Surveillance System, Low Intensity Target Exploitation (SASS LITE) UAV program. This miniature airship developed by Applied Research Associates, I ...

  5. PEN-SIZE PAPER CURRENCY READER

    SBC: APPLIED SCIENCES LABORATORY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DIFFERENTIATING AMONG THE DENOMINATIONS OF U.S. CURRENCY IS A PROBLEM FOR THE VISUALLY HANDICAPPED. CURRENTLY AVAILABLE DEVICES THAT ASSIST THE BLIND IN DETERMINING CURRENCY DENOMINATIONS ARE RELATIVELY LARGE AND EXPENSIVE. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IS A SYSTEMATIC APPLICATION OF PATTERN RECOGNITION AND MICRO-ELECTRONICS TECHNOLOGY TO DEVELOP A PEN-SIZE PAPER CURRENCY READER. RECENT AD ...

  6. Earth-Observing Sensor for Geostationary Orbit

    SBC: Apt, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The specific proposed innovation is the use of an active radiometer in place of conventional radar techniques for measuring rainfall over the earth's surface from satellite platforms. This technique provides a substantial savings in data acquisition time that can be used to increase the scan rate and to improve the spatial resolution (i.e. reduce the footprint) of the measurements. This will provi ...

  7. Multivariate Monitor System for Plasma Etch Reactors

    SBC: Chromex Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CHROMEX proposes to develop a monitor system for plasma etch reactors that will, in the Phase I program, demonstrate much improved endpoint detection when compared to currently availabe systems. The Phase II research will extend the monitoring capabilities to all important plasma parameters. The system will provide the feedback information to the reactor controller necessary to produce a flexible ...

  8. NO MOVING PARTS RAIN GAUGE

    SBC: THE CORE GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. WEATHER SERVICE PRESENTLY USES A "TIPPING BUCKET" RAIN GAUGE FOR MEASURING RAIN ACCUMULATION. THIS DEVICE IS SENSITIVE TO WIND AND MOTION (AS ON BUOYS), CANNOT MEASURE RAIN RATE, AND REQUIRES FREQUENT MAINTENANCE, BECAUSE OF MOVING PARTS. AN ALTERNATIVE DEVICE IS BEING PROPOSED, WHICH INCORPORATES A RIGID, RESONANT TUBE, CLOSED AT THE TOP BY AN ELECTRO-ACOUSTIC TRANSDUCER, AND AT THE BOTT ...

  9. Development of a Generic Satellite Control Unit

    SBC: Scientific Simulation Inc            Topic: N/A

    With the expansion of space operations during recent years, the systems which control spacecraft have become equally expansive and complex. Each new spacecraft has unique approaches to control and operations, utilizing different and sometimes non-intuitive human interfaces. The loss of highly trained satellite control personnel and the large time investment required to replace them suggests an opp ...

  10. Chalcogenide Superconductors

    SBC: Cryopower Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO SEARCH FOR NEW SUPERCONDUCTORS THAT ARE SIMILAR TO THE PEROVSKITE-BASED HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTORS (HTS), BUT WITH THE OXYGEN REPLACED BY A CHALCOGEN, THAT IS SULFUR, SELENIUM OR TELLURIUM. WE BELIEVE THAT THE HTS COPPER OXIDES ARE NOT A UNIQUE ACCIDENT OF NATURE, BUT THAT THERE ARE OTHER COMPLEX CHEMICAL COMPOUNDS THAT COULD ALSO BE SUPERCONDUCTING. AN OBVIOUS PLACE TO LOOK WO ...
