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. Refractory Coating for Heat Resistant Portable Helipad


    Eltron Research & Development, Inc (Eltron) has developed a refractory, flexible, inorganic paint that has shown excellent performance in protecting polymers from direct heat sources. In this project, Eltron will coat portable helipad mat materials such as polyethylene and polyester as well as other high temperature polymers and lightweight materials with refractory paint. Eltron"s refrac ...

  2. Multi-material Helipad


    The goal of the Phase 1 effort is to demonstrate the feasibility of using a structurally flexible multi-layered insulation for increased thermal management and reduced weight for a portable helipad for austere environments compared to the current single material system. Hor gases and thrust particulates from aircraft exhaust can create extreme temperatures and thermal shock leading to premature fa ...

  6. High Efficiency 808-nm VCSEL Arrays with Excellent Beam Quality

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: N122112

    Today"s high energy Q-switched Nd:YAG lasers are often pumped by stacks of multiple edge-emitting diode laser bars since the vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) traditionally have been lower in efficiency. In this effort we are proposing a novel VCSEL design which overcomes the efficiency bottleneck in conventional VCSEL while preserving its beneficial attributes such as uniform be ...
