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. Integrating Tactical Weather Sensors with Mobile Devices and the AF Weather Enterprise

    SBC: Distributed Communication Systems            Topic: AF141048

    ABSTRACT:In Phase II Distributed Communication Systems (DCS) proposes to improve the operational abilities of first in warfighters to transmit real-time weather data for ingestion into the AFW enterprise and receive up-to-date weather products, both text based and graphical, from AF-WEBs in support of their mission from anywhere on earth. DCS plans to accomplish this by building off of the success ...
