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.


    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF071344

    Modern turbine engines undergo extensive ground testing in test cells during development. These engines are instrumented with numerous strain gages for high-frequency dynamic strain measurements. Currently, analog signals from these gages are routed out of the test cell to remote data acquisition equipment over hundreds of feet of wire. With up to 200 gages to be installed, the task of patching ...

  2. Technology enhanced science education.

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a troubling decline in the number of US citizens training to become scientists and engineers. There are insufficient numbers of qualified science teachers in the middle schools, where interest in science must be kindled. Technology enhanced learning environments (TELEs), which could improve science education, are not being widely deployed. This Phase I project will customize a TELE to a) ...

  3. Graded Interference Filter Spectrometer

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The release of volatile organic compounds from industrial processes can have negative impacts on the environment while also posing significant health and safety concerns. In the environment, many of these chemical are considered precursors to ground-level ozone, which is the primary component of smog. In addition, many volatile organic compounds are cancer-causing in humans while others pose dan ...

  4. Distributed System for Field Detection of Stray Energy from Laser Weapons

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF05313

    The Air Force is in need of a system to measure stray laser energy during the open-air test-range firing of high-energy laser weapons such as the Airborne Laser. In Phase I, a laboratory-scale system composed of four hemispherical-imaging laser-scattering detectors was constructed to monitor light scattered from stray laser energy during simulated laser weapon engagements. It was demonstrated th ...

  5. Radiological Source Surveillance With V-RADS Video-Centric Radiatiion Detection

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Radiological sources are in everyday use in numerous industries. Illicit removal of this material from storage could result in construction of a Radiological Dispersal Device or Dirty Bomb. A pervasive means of securing radiological materials and identifying breaches in security is required. Ideally, existing passive surveillance technology would be used, thereby enabling rapid and cost effective ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: A Staged Pyrolysis and Combustion Process for Solid Waste Recycling in Fast Food Restaurants

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AM

    The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will employ a staged pyrolysis and combustion process as a method to ""recycle"" mixed solid waste materials (paper and plastic packaging, and food scrap) from restaurants. The hydrogen-rich fuel gases generated from these solid waste streams can then be burned to produce heat and power. The proposed technology can be used for most so ...

  7. SBIR: Improved High-Performance Ultracapacitor Electrodes for Hybrid Vehicles and Other Applications

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project addresses the development of improved high-performance, low-cost carbon electrodes for ultracapacitors. The proposed innovation is the use of proprietary carbon-preparation techniques to produce high-performance, low-cost carbon electrodes. The first Phase I objective is to demonstrate the feasibility of manufacturing carbon electrodes ...

  8. Distributed Sensor System Innovations

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N07070

    The overall intent of this project is to produce cost-effective component technologies that will facilitate the development of compact sensing nodes which are utilized by deep submergence vector sensing line arrays. The principle application for this effort is targeted for the augmented reliable acoustic path vector sensing line array. In that regard, the Phase I study will develop a prototype c ...

  9. Broadband Doppler-Sensitive Waveforms for Energy-Constrained Distributed Active Sonar Systems

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N06161

    The Doppler cue obtained from using narrowband Doppler-sensitive sonar waveforms is an effective discriminator of moving targets from clutter. Often, however, targets will exhibit low Doppler, caused by slow-moving or cross-range motion, with Doppler further reduced in multistatic sonar for targets between source and receiver. Moreover, the strategically important littoral conditions exhibit incre ...

  10. An Interactive Acoustic Approach for Mitigation of Impacts on Marine Mammals

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N07024

    Applied Physical Sciences Corp. (APS) and its proposed subcontractor Applied Research Laboratory of the Pennsylvania State University (ARL/PSU) propose to develop a deployable marine mammal mitigation system. The system will use vector hydrophones to passively detect, track, classify, and localize vocalizing mammals. Using species identification, behavior recognition, and ranging, safe-level aco ...
