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. Optical Periodontal Probe

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective is an optical periodontal probe tailored to automatically measure and record multiple tissue parameters deemed important for disease detection and treatment monitoring. As a first step in the development of a multi-functional device, a probe designed to mimic the visual measurements made by dental clinicians to determine pocket depth, bleeding on probing (BOP) and tissue coloration w ...

  2. Intelligent Flexible Fixturing System

    SBC: ACT Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Two approaches are proposed to attack the problems of fixturing process. First, a novel hardware holding system, Dexterous Vise, is proposed. Functionally, a single Dexterous Vise is capable of revealing four faces of the clamped workpiece to the cutting tool without re-fixturing, which actually increases one degree of freedom to the machine tool. A pair of Dexterous Vises, the "Dual-Vise", ena ...

  3. Automated Accurate Aircraft Weighing System

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Herein, an innovative aircraft weighing system based on a set of piezopolymar film pad sensors is described. The wieghing system, which would operate automatically as the aircraft taxi over it, would be unobtrusive, accurate, and reliable. These sensor pads could be integrated into the flight deck surface below the grated rubber surface finish. These thin (20-30 mils) piezopolymer sensing pads ...

  4. Smart, Compact Packages for Vibration Control

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Herein, ACX proposes to develop compact, low cost, integrated smart packs for vibration reduction. Each package would include actuators and sensors, drive and signal conditioning electronics as well as simple controllers to yield a self standing solution to vibration problems. The electronics module would be low cost and compact. The pack would run off of standard available power supplies and w ...

  6. Particle Sizing and Identification Through Advanced Light Scatter Techniques

    SBC: Ade Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Light scatter has been used to map and size particles on silicon wafers for many years, producing accurate maps of particle position and giving an indication of particle size, but do not reveal any information about particle composition. Today's technology is limited by noise, precluding detection of the smallest particles of interest. Present instruments are not adequate for the next generation ...

  7. LOW-COST COMPOSITE MANUFACTURING PROCESS

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ADVANTAGES OF THERMOPLASTIC MATRIX COMPOSITES FOR MANUFACTURING LOW-COST CMPONENTS HAVE YET TO BE REALIZED. AN IMPORTANT FACTOR LIMITING THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITES IS THE LACK OF LOW-COST METHOD FOR PRODUCING HIGH-QUALITY PREPREGS AND PREFORMS. A METHOD OF PRODUCING THESE MATERIALS THAT IS COMPATIBLE WITH COMMONLY USED COMPOSITE FABRICATION TECHNIQUES SUCH AS FILAMENT WINDING, PULTRUSION, AND PR ...

  8. Catalytic Conversion Recycling Process for Composite Aircraft Components

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Cured aircraft composite materials present a particularly difficult challenge for recycling technology. Those materials have mostly thermosetting epoxy matrices and occur in intimate association with metals, paints, and coatings. Current techniques for recycling thermoset composites, mostly for automotive sheet molding compounds (SMC), involve pulverizing the material for use as fillers. Th ...

  9. Tertiary Recycling Process for Shipboard Plastic Processor Product

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A novel tertiary recycling process is proposed for investigation as an economical means for recycling shipboard plastic waste. Early development work has shown that this process can convert a wide variety of polymers and composites into low molecular weight hydrocarbons at temperatures below 200'C. The hydrocarbons produced can then be reused as chemicals, fuels, or monomers. Metal, glass, and fil ...
