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. GNSS Radio Occulation Receiver

    SBC: 3s Navigation (dba For            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort is to design a space-qualified dual-frequency GPS/GLONASS receiver with enhanced capabilities for atmospheric remote sounding. While such soundings have been performed using GPS-only receivers, a space-based GPS/GLONASS receiver would be superior in terms of coverage and integrity cross- checking, as well as the ability to process the unencrypted GLONASS L2 signal. This design ...

  2. Self-Calibration and Error Analysis for 2D Measurements

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    Two-dimensional measurement machines, such as microlithography and computed tomography systems, are subject to distortions in the measurement field due to imperfections in their hardware and software. Certified methods to characterize and quantify such distortions are urgently needed. An innovative self- calibrating scheme is tendered which eliminates the disadvantages of previous self-calibration ...

  3. Automated Imaging and Mapping System for AUV

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Precision underwater mapping is an important requirement of projects ranging from wreck surveys and environmental impact studies to mine clearing operations and marine science projects. Small Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) are capable platforms for mapping operations as they are easily deployed and can operate in hazardous environments. We propose the development of an Automated Imaging and ...

  4. Analysis Software for Near-Field Optical Microscopes

    SBC: Field Precision            Topic: N/A

    The near-field scanning optical microscope can supply information on the shape and electrical properties of surfaces with nanometer resolution. The quantitative interpretation of images is difficult because of the difficulty of electromagnetic field solutions in the near-field limit. We propose to supply software to aid in this analysis. The finite-element programs generate two and three-dimension ...

  5. A Digital Library of Computer-System Security Vulnerabilities

    SBC: Interconnect Technologies            Topic: N/A

    A study will determine the feasibility of using a digital-library system for computer-system vulnerability information. The system model will draw upon advances being made in multi-agency NII digital library research projects, library science techniques being developed for digital media, and standardized WWW technologies. Technical objectives include determining how best to: 1) catalog and class ...

  7. New Methods for Evaluating Thermal Performance of Protective Clothing for

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A growing number of fire fighters are suffering third degree burns; this has led to questions about the adequacy of thermal protective performance (TPP) measurements for protective clothing. A new heat flux sensor, whose response approximates that of skin, will be developed to provide better measurements of heat transfer in TPP tests. This sensor will be used with nonlinear parameter estimation an ...

  8. Thermographic Phosphor Based Heat Flux Sensors

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    As fire protection engineering moves towards the implementation of performance- based fire codes, the use of validated fire models is becoming a necessity. Part of the validation process involves demonstrating model capabilities for predicting key fire environment parameters. One of the key parameters for estimating time to ignition and fire growth is the heat transfer rate to compartment surfaces ...

  9. Thomas Drop Net Concept

    SBC: Ocean Friendly            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of the Thomas Drop Net Concept is to introduce a new method of catching pure schools of surface feding fish with the ability to select only those schools of targeted species which are of desirable size. The method involves a helicopter deployed drop net which is lowered around a selected school of targeted species, pursed, and left floating. When the seiner arrives, they place a tr ...

  10. Physics Based Life Prediction of Thermal Barrier Coatings in Gas Turbines

    SBC: Optimal Corp            Topic: N/A

    Innovative methods, based on thermodynamics theory, will be developed to establish a unified approach in quantifying the damage state of thermal barrier coatings (TBC) under high temperature service conditions. After surveying existing material damage models, a mechanistic model which describes rate- and temperature-dependent deformation behavior of TBC with material damage will be proposed. Spe ...
