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. 3e Swept External Cavity Quantum Cascade Lasers for Remote Detection

    SBC: OPTICSLAH, LLC            Topic: 03e

    Rapid and sensitive remote detection of chemicals remains a challenging and currently unmet need for a wide range of monitoring and sensing applications. Remote detection is needed when it is not possible or practical to obtain samples for analysis of chemicals in a laboratory, and thus measurements must be performed without physical access to the source release point. In particular, quantitative ...

  2. A Compact and Fast Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR) Spectroscopy System for Aerosol Combustion

    SBC: OPTICSLAH, LLC            Topic: DTRA182003

    To fully understand the combustion dynamics when chemical warfare agents are detonated, fast time-scale diagnostics are needed. While computational modeling may provide insight into the different processes, experimental measurements are needed to verify and validate these models. Since the detonation or combustion of chemical agents can result in optically thick fireballs, innovative techniques mu ...

  3. A CONCEPT FOR USING RF AS A NON-LETHAL DETERRENT TO INTRUDERS INTO NUCLEAR WEAPONS STORAGE FACILITIES

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

    THE DEVICE DESCRIBED IN THIS PHASE I PROPOSAL INCORPORATES A NOVEL TECHNIQUE FOR USING RF AS AN ENHANCEMENT TO FACILITY SECURITY SYSTEMS. RF HAS OFTEN BEEN INVESTIGATED AS A METHOD FOR PROVIDING A NON-LETHAL DETERRENT TO INTRUSION INTO SECURED FACILITIES SUCH AS STORAGE FACILITIES FOR NUCLEAR WEAPONS. THE PRIMARY PROBLEM ASSOCIATED WITH THE SYSTEMS THAT HAVE BEEN STUDIED HAS BEEN THE ABILITY TO CO ...

  4. A CONFIGURABLE AUTOMATED LIBRARIAN FOR COMPUTER SOFTWARE SOURCE CODE

    SBC: Modular Software Systems            Topic: N/A

    COORDINATION OF THE SHARING OF SOURCE CODE IN MEDIUMETO LARGE-SCALE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS POSES A DIFFICULT PROBLEM IN THE ABSENCE OF A SOURCE CODE LIBRARIAN SYSTEM. UNFORTUNATELY, SYSTEMS OF THIS TYPE, WHILE POWERFUL AND FLEXIBLE, GENERALLY REQUIRE A LEVEL OF EXPERTISE AND COMMITMENT NOT COMMONLY FOUND IN THE APPLICATIONS CODE DEVELOPER. IN AN ATTEMPT TO ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM, THIS PROPOSA ...

  5. A DIODE LASER HUMIDITY SENSOR FOR COLD ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MEASUREMENTS OF ATMOSPHERIC HUMIDITY IN COLD REGIONS OR WINTER FIELD ENVIRONMENTS ARE DIFFICULT USING EXISTING METEOROLOGICAL INSTRUMENTATION. IN GENERAL, PRESENT FIELD INSTRUMENTS FOR UNTENDED HUMIDITY MEASUREMENTS ARE PLAGUED BY LOW SENSITIVITY AND DRIFTS IN CALIBRATION, RESULTING IN POOR ACCURACY AND LOW RELIABILITY. WE PROPOSE A NEW INSTRUMENTATION CONCEPT FOR FIELD MEASUREMENT OF HUMIDITY, BA ...

  6. A DIODE LASER SENSOR FOR MEASUREMENT OF HYDROGEN CHLORIDE GAS

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    LARGE QUANTITIES OF TOXIC HYDROGEN CHLORIDE (HCL) GAS ARE EMITTED DURING SOME MISSILE LAUNCHES, POSING A SERIOUS SAFETY HAZARD TO LAUCH SITE PERSONNEL. EXISTING INSTRUMENTATION FOR MEASURING HCL CONCENTRATIONS DOES NOT HAVE ADEQUATE TIME RESPONSE OR SENSITIVITY, AND IS SUSCEPTIBLE TO INTERFERENCES FROM OTHER MISSILE EXHAUST GASES. WE PROPOSE A NEW INSTRUMENTATION CONCEPT FOR LAUNCH SITE MEASURMENT ...

  7. A FIBER OPTIC ARRAY DETECTOR

    SBC: Amparo Corp.on            Topic: N/A

    WIRE CHAMBERS ARE A CLASS OF PARTICLE TRACK DETECTORS THAT HAVE FOUND WIDE APPLICATIONS IN HIGH ENERGY PARTICLE PHYSICS EXPERIMENTS. LARGE WIRE CHAMBER DETECTORS HAVE BECOME RATHER COMPLEX, REQUIRING MANY FAST ELECTRONIC CIRCUITS. THIS INVESTIGATION OFFERS THE POTENTIAL OF SIMPLIFICATION AND COST REDUCTION FOR LARGE WIRE CHAMBER DETECTORS. THE PHASE I EFFORT IS INVESTIGATING THE FEASIBILITY OF USI ...

  8. A FLOWING AFTERGLOW SYSTEM FOR STUDYING MOLECULAR REACTIONS

    SBC: Enfitek Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF A FLOWING AFTERGLOW SYSTEM IS PROPOSED.THE DESIGN (PHASE I) WOULD MAKE EXTENSIVE USE OF PREVIOUS DESIGNS UPDATED WITH MODERN ELECTRONICS AND MATERIALS. SOME NEW IDEAS ARE PRESENTED, SUCH AS THE USE OF LASER EXCITATION OF THE BUFFER GAS AND THE USE OF AN OMA FOR SPECTROSCOPIC ANALYSIS. A COMPLETELY MODULAR DESIGN IS PROPOSED TO ALLOW USE OF A LARGE NUMBER OF COMBINATI ...

  9. A HIGH YIELD SYNTHESIS PROCESS FOR AMMONIUM DINITRAMIDE (ADN)

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AMMONIUM DINITRAMIDE (ADN) WAS INVENTED AT SRI INTERNATIONAL (MENLO PARK, CA) IN 1989. ITS DISCOVERY IS SIGNIFICANT IN THAT THEORETICAL CALCULATIONS PREDICT IT TO EXHIBIT BETTER PERFORMANCE AS AN ADVANCED ORDNANCE MATERIAL THAN MOST CLASSICAL NITRAMINE INGREDIENTS. A PROBLEM WITH ADN AT THE OUTSET WAS THE LOW YIELDS OFFERED BY THE SYNTHETIC ROUTES TO THE COMPOUND. THE MOST IMPORTANT OBJECTIVE OF T ...

  10. A NEW HIGH Z, EXTREMELY FAST SCINTILLATOR FOR PET

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    POSITRON EMMISSION TOMOGRAPHY (PET) IS ONE OF THE MOST PROMISING TECHNOLOGIES FOR DETAILED IMAGING OF ORGAN STRUCTURE AND DYNAMIC BIOLOGICAL PROCESSES IN THE BODY. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTORS DETERMINING THE PERFORMANCE CAPABILITIES OF PET SYSTEMS IS THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE RADIATION DETECTORS USED. IMAGE RESOLUTION IN CURRENT PET CAMERAS IS RESTRICTED BY THE INHERENT LONG COINCIDENCE WIN ...
