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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. IN-PLACE AIR PERMEAMETER FOR OPEN-GRADED DRAINAGE LAYERS

    SBC: Geo-systems Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A RAPID FIELD TEST IS PROPOSED TO EVALUATE THE PERMEABILITY OF OPEN-GRADED ROAD BASES AND OTHER DRAINAGE LAYERS. THE SAME TEST ALSO SHOULD BE ADAPTABLE TO EVALUATE PERMEABILITIES OF OTHER EXPOSED PAVEMENT LAYERS INCLUDING THOSE COMPOSED OF BITUMINOUS OR PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETES, AS AN INDEX TO PERMEATION AND POSSIBLY TO DETERIORATION. IT IS PROPOSED THAT THE PERMEABILITY BE EVALUATED THROUGH USE ...

  6. ADVANCED DE-ICING FLUIDS FOR GENERAL AVIATION AIRCRAFT

    SBC: Kohlman Aviation Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROJECT WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF THE USE OF ADVANCED TYPE II FLUIDS FOR THE DE-ICING/ANTI-ICING OF GENERAL AVIATION (GA) AIRCRAFT WITH TAKEOFF SAFETY SPEEDS (V2) OF GENERALLY LESS THAN 85 KNOTS. TYPE II FLUIDS WILL BE APPLIED TO SEVERAL GA CATEGORY AIRCRAFT. THE ICE PROTECTION CAPABILITY OF THE FLUID WILL BE EVALUATED FOR DIFFERENT FREEZING PRECIPITATION CONDITIONS. THE EFFEC ...

  7. MEASURING LIVE LOAD STRESSES ON BRIDGES

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (DOT) IS REQUIRED TO MAIN- TAIN THE NATION'S BRIDGES AND ENSURE THEIR SAFETY. HOWEVER,A LARGE NUMBER OF BRIDGES HAVE NOT BEEN RECENTLY INSPECTED TO DETERMINE IF THEY ARE CAPABLE OF SAFELY SUPPORTING THE TRAFFIC THAT IS CROSSING THEM. THE CURRENT METHOD OF SURVEYING BRIDGES, TO DETERMINE THEIR STRESS CONDITION, IS COSTLY AND TIME-CONSUMING. THIS PROGRAM WILL DEVELOP ...

  9. GPS-Based Animal Control System

    SBC: AgriTech Electronics, L.C.            Topic: N/A

    This is a Phase II proposal to continue the work begun by AgriTech Electronics, LC (AgriTech) on a GPS-based livestock control system. This system will exclude animals from areas, or contain them within defined boundaries, where it is impractical or inefficient to build fence to achieve this objective. These needs arise in a variety of contexts, including the exclusion of livestock from riparian a ...

  10. PRECISE INJECTION OF NH3 USING PULSE-WIDTH MODULATION METERING

    SBC: Capstan Ag Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Anhydrous ammonia (NH3), a heavily used nitrogen fertilizer, is a volatile gas which flashes at -40 F. It is handles as pressurized liquid and difficult to meter accurately and dispense. Its low cost, due to inexpensive energy, has encouraged wasteful over-application rather than investment in currently costly and ineffective application control systems. Ammonia costs will increase with energy cos ...
