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. LONGITUDINAL STRESS (FORCE) MEASUREMENT OF RAIL UNDER OPERATING CONDITIONS

    SBC: Magnasonics Inc            Topic: N/A

    IN 1982, A SPECIAL COMMITTEE OF THE NMAB ISSUED A REPORT ON THE NONDESTRUCTIVE METHODS THAT MIGHT BE USED TO MEASURE THELOGITUDINAL FORCE IN INSTALLED RAILS. IT SHOWED THAT THE ACOUSTO-ELASTIC EFFECT WHICH INFERS THE STRESS FROM MEASURE MENTS OF SMALL SHIFTS IN THE VELOCITY OF SOUND WAS PROMISINGBUT DIFFICULT TO IMPLEMENT BECAUSE VARIATIONS IN THE METALLURGICAL STRUCTURE OF THE METAL AND UNCERTAIN ...

  2. X-RAY SMEAR CAMERA

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MISSION RESEARCH CORPORATION PROPOSES TO PERFORM AN ANALYTIC INVESTIGATION OF THE DESIGN FEASIBILITY OF AN X-RAY SMEAR (STREAK) CAMERA WITH A .5-50 MICROSEC RECORDING TIME. RADIOGRAPHY SOURCES TYPICALLY EMIT BROADBAND PENETRATING RADIATION IN THE SPECTRAL RANGE OF 10 KEV TO 300 KEV. X-RAYS WILL BE CONVERTED TO OPTICAL IMAGES WITH A FAST SCINTILLATOR AND A GATED MICROCHANNEL PLATE. THE LIGHT IS TRA ...

  3. A SOLID-DISCHARGE, HEAVY-ION SOURCE FOR HEAVY-ION FUSION-

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    CLOTH FIBER CATHODES HAVE BEEN SHOWN TO BE EXTREMELY USEFUL AS HIGH-BRIGHTNESS, LONG-PULSE, COLD-CATHODE ELECTRON EMITTERS. THIS RESEACH WILL EXTEND THIS TECHNOLOGY TO ION EMISSION (SPECIFICALLY CARBON (C) IONS). AN ELECTRIC DISCHARGE WILL BE STRUCK TO THE CLOTH BY THREE DISTINCT HIGH-VOLTAGE EXCITATION TECHNIQUES TO PRODUCE A RICH PLASMA CAPABLE OF EMITTING A HIGH CURRENT DENSITY, LOW-EMITTANCE B ...

  4. A PULSED CO2 LASER FOR SPACE APPLICATION IN REMOTE ATMOSPHERIC SENSING

    SBC: Pulse Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SPACE QUALIFIABLE PULSED CO2 LASER SYSTEM FOR REMOTE SENSING OF THE ATMOSPHERE IS A DIFFICULT PROBLEM MADE MORE DIFFICULT BECAUSE OF PRESENT PULSED CO2 (TEA) LASER CHARACTERISTICS SUCH AS HIGH OPERATING VOLTAGE, LOW EFFICIENCY, AND RELATIVELY SHORT LIFE EXPECTANCY UNDER SEALED CONDITIONS. THIS PROJECT EXAMINES THE FEASIBILITY OF APPLYING A UNIQUE LOW-VOLTAGE, COMPACT, EFFICIEN ...

  5. THE ENHANCED SEGMENT INTERCONNECT FOR FASTBUS DATA COMMUNICATIONS-

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE FASTBUS SYSTEM SPECIFICATION FOR HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS AND OTHER DATA SYSTEM APPLICATIONS DEFINES THE SEGMENT INTERCONNECT (SI) AS THE BASIC SYSTEM ELEMENT FOR LINKING BACKPLANE SEGMENTS TOGETHER. THE FASTBUS SPECIFICATION ALSO DESCRIBES A BUFFERED INTERCONNECT (BI) THAT WOULD ALLOW THE HIGHSPEED ACCUMULATION AND STORAGE OF A FASTBUS MESSAGE OR BLOCK OF DATA AND THE SUBSEQUENT FORWARDING OF THES ...

  6. CONTOUR DESCRIPTIONS FOR MACHINE VISION

    SBC: TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NORMALIZED INTERVAL/VERTEX DESCRIPTORS (NI/VD) ALLOW A SIMPLE, YET EXACT REPRESENTATION OF A CONTOUR BY CODING THE LENGTH OF STRAIGHT LINE SEGMENTS AND THE ANGLE CONNECTING THESE SEGMENTS INTO A CHAIN CODE. BY NORMALIZING THE LENGTHS THE REPRESENTATION IS MADE SCALE INVARIANT. BY CHOICE OF A STARTING SEGMENT, IT IS ROTATIONALLY INVARIANT. THEREFORE A "LIBRARY" REPRESENTATION OF THE CONTOUR IS COMP ...

  7. ELECTRONIC FUSE TRANSFORMERS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    IN THIS WORK, WE PROPOSE TO IDENTIFY, DESIGN, AND EVALUATE OPTIMUM TRANSFORMER CANDIDATES FOR ELECTRONIC FUSE APPLICATIONS. POSSIBLE CANDIDATES WILL ORIGINATE FROM THE AREAS OF AC, PULSE, AND NONCONVENTIONAL TRANSFORMERS. THE TRANSFORMERS WILL HAVE A VOLTAGE GAIN OF 100 AND WILL BE DESIGNED FOR HIGH EFFICIENCY AND RELIABILITY. KEY ISSUES ADDRESSED IN THIS PROPOSAL ARE: EFFICIENCY, RELIABILITY, SIZ ...

  8. TURBULENCE STRUCTURING IN HIGH REYNOLDS NUMBER FLOW FIELDS

    SBC: United International Engineeri            Topic: N/A

    THE DISCOVERY OF LARGE-SCALE COHERENT STRUCTURES AND THEIR RECENT EMPHASIS IN RESEARCH INTRODUCES THE NOTION THAT TURBULENT SHEAR AND BOUNDARY LAYER FLOWS CONSIST OF QUASI-DETERMINISTIC STRUCTURE AND THE TRANSPORT AND ENTRAINMENT ARE MOSTLY INDUCTION DRIVEN RATHER THAN DUE TO GRADIENT DIFFUSTION. TURBULENCE CONTROL SUCH AS SUPPRESSION OF TURBULENCE AND DRAG REDUCTION, JET NOISE PRODUCTION AND BROA ...

  9. INTELLIGENT INPUT/OUTPUT SUBSYSTEM FOR CAMAC AND FASTBUS

    SBC: Aeon Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A MODULAR INPUT/OUTPUT SUBSYSTEM IS PROPOSED TO PROVIDE INTERFACE BETWEEN EXPERIMENTAL DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEMS USING THE CAMAC OR FASTBUS STANDARDS AND NEW-GENERATION DIGITAL EQUIPMENT CORPORATION MINICOMPUTERS. THE SYSTEM OFFERS A POTENTIAL TENFOLD INCREASE IN THE SPEED OF DATA ACQUISITION OVER CURRENT SYSTEMS. IT INCLUDES SUFFICIENT COMPUTER INTELLIGENCE TO MANAGE DATA TRANSFERS BETWEEN THE EXP ...

  10. BIAXIAL INTERFACE STRESS TRANSDUCER FOR HIGH OVERPRESSURES- DEVELOPMENT

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

    DEFINITION OF THE STRUCTURE-MEDIA INTERACTION (SMI) LOADS ON A BURIED STRUCTURE IS ONE OF THE LARGEST SOURCES OF UNCERTAINTY IN ANALYZING THE SURVIVABILITY OF STRATEGIC STRUCTURES. ADVANCEMENT OF THE STATEOF-THE-ART IN THE MODELING OF SMI BEHAVIOR IS HAMPERED BY A LIMITED DATA BASE WHICH IS CONFINED TO OVERPRESSURES MUCH SMALLER THAN THOSE CURRENTLY OF INTEREST. THIS EFFORT PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AND ...
