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. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. Apparatus for the Testing of Solid Cryogenic Mechanical Properties

    SBC: Advanced Materials            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort in Phase I is to identify properties of propellants that solidify at cryogenic temperatures, "cryosolids", that will be tested in Phase Ii and to deliver a detailed design of a cryogenic testing device. This device will be able to measure tensile, flexural, shear and compressive strength, elastic moduli, and hardness of these cryosolids. In addition, this device will be able ...

  8. Using Simulation/Animation Modeling Techniques to Optimize the ROCC/SOCC Computer communications System

    SBC: Advanced Visual Data, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Joint Surveillance System Computer-Communications System (C-CS) provides mission-critical support to Region Operations Control Centers (ROCCs), Sector Operations Control Centers (SOCCs), and North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). New mission requirements (drug interdiction) and new sensor/system developments exceed the scope of the original design and mission of the C-CS. As a resu ...

  9. Evaporative Turbine Blade Cooling Using a Return Flow Cascade

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    High intensity cooling of expansion turbine blades is proposed, using a self-stabilized evaporation/condensation process within each blade. The result is low blade structural temperature, with waste heat delivered to a low pressure air flow. This is a key technology requirement for development of a fully cooled gas turbine, with potential for operation at radically increased turbine inlet temper ...

  10. High Performance UAV System Design Based on High Power Microturbine Technology

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A radical, high performance system design concept for UAV missions is proposed. Its characteristics derive directly from propulsion and power generation capabilities inherent in microturbine technology under development at MIT. The proposed vehicle configurations is an oblate spheroid, giving a high package volume with sufficient fuel capacity for hover duration of about one hour. Thrust from m ...
