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. INTENSE GAMA-RAY BEAMS

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

    STANDARD MONTE CARLO AND FN METHODS FOR RADIATION TRANSPORT WILL BE USED TO STUDY A NEWLY PROPOSED SHIELD CONFIGURATION FOR PROTECTION AGAINST PARALLEL OR SLIGHTLY DIVERING GAMA RAY BEAMS IN A SPACE (NON-SCATTTERING) ENVIRONMENT. THE NEW CONFIGURATION EMPLOYS LAYERED SHIELDS, WITH CONSIDERABLE SEPARATION BETWEEN THE LAYERS, TO SHADOW THE TARGET, OF THE ASSUMPTION THAT THE DIRECTION OF INCIDENCE IS ...

  2. ESTABLISH DESIGN CRITERIA FOR, AN OPTICAL PROBE TO MEASURE THE DUST LOFTED BY THE SHOCK WAVE DURING A NUCLEAR BLAST WAVE SIMULATION.

    SBC: DYNAMICS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ESTABLISH DESIGN CRITERIA FOR, AN OPTICAL PROBE TO MEASURE THE DUST LOFTED BY THE SHOCK WAVE DURING A NUCLEAR BLAST WAVE SIMULATION. DUST DENSITY IS DETERMINED FROM THE REDUCTION IN INTENSITY OF LIGHT PROJECTED OVER AN INTERROGATION PATH TRANSVERSE TO THE FLOW. USE OF A SIMPLE LIGHT SOURCE AND DETECTOR WITH FIBER OPTIC TRANSMISSION LINES PRODUCES AN INEXPENSIVE RUGGED INSTRUMENT WHICH CAN BE DEPLO ...

  3. DETERRENCE TO STRATEGIC DEFENSE

    SBC: Econ, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ADVANCE OF TECHNOLOGIES MAY MAKE DEFENSE AGAINST BALLISTIC MISSLES TECHNICALLY AND ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE. A NATIONAL POLICY DEBATE HAS BEGUN ON THE DESIRABILITY OF MAKING A TRANSITION FROM STRATEGIC DETERRANCE TO STRATEGIC DEFENSE. THE DEBATE IS AT PRESENT HIGHLY CONFUSING AND UNSTRUCTURED, SINCE THE VARIOUS ARGUMENTS FOR AND AGAINST THAT TRANSITION ARE BASED ON DIFFERING ASSUMPTIONS, OFTEN TA ...

  4. THE PURPOSE OF THIS BRIEF STUDY IS TO REVIEW THE PRESENT STATUS OF ENHANCED RADIATION WEAPONS FROM A TECHNICAL, MILITARY, AND POLITICAL POINT OF VIEW, AND TO MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS REGARDING THE FUTURE OF THESE WEAPONS.

    SBC: La Mancha Company            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS BRIEF STUDY IS TO REVIEW THE PRESENT STATUS OF ENHANCED RADIATION WEAPONS FROM A TECHNICAL, MILITARY, AND POLITICAL POINT OF VIEW, AND TO MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS REGARDING THE FUTURE OF THESE WEAPONS. THERE ARE A NUMBER OF INTERRELATED REASONS FOR UNDERTAKING SUCH A TASK AT THIS TIME. FOR A NUMBER OF REASONS THERE APPEARS TO BE A GENERAL RELUCTANCE TO CONTINUE THE ERW DEBATE AT TH ...

  5. DC- 20GHZ Q-DOT RESEARCH PROPOSAL 1035, PART 1--TECHNICAL PROPOSAL

    SBC: Q-DOT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    UNIQUE CHARGE-COUPLED DEVICES MAY BE ABLE TO RECORD PHENOMENA WITH INFORMATION SPANNING DC - 20GHZ. DATA TO BE RECORDED IS SAMPLED AT RATES UP TO 100 GS/S AND STORED TEMPORARILY IN THE CCD. IT IS THEN SHIFTED AT SLOW RATES INTO A CONVENTIONAL A/D AND DIGITAL MEMORY. PRELIMINARY RESEARCH SUGGESTS BROAD TRADE-OFFS AMONG RECORD LENGTH, SAMPLING INTERVAL, DYNAMIC RANGE, AND OTHER FACTORS. OUR FIRST ST ...

  7. OF SILICON DEVICES TO ALPHA PARTICLE RADIATION

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    SOFT ERRORS INDUCED BY IONIZING PARTICLES CONSTITUTE ONE OF THE MOST PRESSING PROBLEMS OF PRESENT SEMICONDUCTOR TECHNOLOGY. HARDENING MEASURES HAVE BEEN ATTEMPTED EMPIRICALLY AND THROUGH CIRCUIT SIMULATION, DESIGN MODIFICATION, AND DEVICE SIMULATION. A NECESSARY COMPONENT TO THESE STUDIES IS AN ACCURATE REPRESENTATION OF CIRCUIT RESPONSE, CHARGE COLLECTED, AND IN SOME CASES THE FUNNEL LENGTH. INSO ...

  9. SPECTROMETERS

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    FOR THE CLASS OF DNA NUCLEAR WEAPONS EFFECTS SIMULATOR KNOWN AS THE PLASMA RADIATING SOURCE (PRS), HIGH RESOLUTION X-RAY SPECTROSCOPY DIAGNOSTIC MEASUREMENTS PROVIDE CRITICAL INFORMATION BOTH FOR CHARACTERIZATION OF THE TEST-OBJECT RADIATION ENVIRONMENT AND FOR OPTIMIZATION OF THE SOURCE. PRESENT PRS HIGH RESOLUTION X-RAY SPECTROMETERS RECORD DATA ON PHOTOGRAPHIC FILM, THE PROCESSING AND ANALYSIS ...

  10. COMMERCIAL SAPPHIRE SURFACES CONTAIN BURIED DAMAGE WHICH HAS A DELETERIOUS INFLUENCE ON SOS LAYERS GROWN THEREON.

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIAL SAPPHIRE SURFACES CONTAIN BURIED DAMAGE WHICH HAS A DELETERIOUS INFLUENCE ON SOS LAYERS GROWN THEREON. THE DEFECTS IN THE SILICON LAYERS RESULT IN A REDUCED YIELD OF DEVICES AND PERFORMANCE LIMITATIONS. MUCH OF THE DAMAGE IN THE SAPPHIRE SURFACE IS PRODUCED BY THE POLISHING STEP, WHICH EMPLOYS AN ABRASIVE PAD IN CONTACT WITH THE SAPPHIRE SURFACE. AN IMPROVED POLISHING PROCESS HAS BEEN E ...
