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. Robust Distributed GPS Apertures

    SBC: NAVSYS CORPORATION, THE            Topic: SB091012

    The DoD is heavily dependent on the Global Positioning System (GPS) for worldwide military operations. The GPS signal is subject to a variety of potential degradations, such as path loss (e.g., foliated or indoor environments), multipath (e.g., urban canyon or in-building), and interference (intentional or unintentional). There are many military applications where a group of GPS users may operat ...

  2. High-Power, Narrow Linewidth Laser Sources for Alkali Atoms

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: SB082017

    The purpose of this proposal is to produce high-power, narrow-linewidth (~1 MHz or less), robust, turnkey laser sources that will meet the requirements of emerging cold-atom sensors. The goal of this Phase II effort is to develop a frequency-agile diode laser system with an output power of 1000 mW. This single-laser source can be modulated with sidebands at up to 10 GHz for repumping operations, ...

  3. Rapid Tactics Development Using Existing, Low-Cost Virtual Environments

    SBC: Adaptive Cognitive Systems            Topic: N08117

    A tremendous need exists for intelligent agents that can be created and edited without resorting to intensive knowledge engineering and programming, and which exhibit believable and variable behavior in the training contexts in which they are deployed. This proposal describes a novel method for creating and editing intelligent agents’ behavior based on using instance-based modelin ...

  4. Ultra-Low SWaP and Low Cost Micro-LADAR Devices for Guided Sub-Munitions

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: AF083093

    Vescent Photonics proposes to develop, design and build new scanning based micro-ladar sensors with unprecedented cost and size, weight, and power (SWAP), thereby enabling ladar deployment on previously inaccessible platforms (SUAS, micro-munitions, etc.). This tremendous reduction in SWaP and cost is enabled by replacing expensive, heavy and power consumptive mechanics with Vescent’s propriet ...

  5. A Reactive Controller for Harvesting Gust Energy (RECHARGE) for Small UAS

    SBC: Area I, Inc.            Topic: N09T025

    Area-I, Inc. and Penn State will continue the development and testing of our Reactive Controller for Harvesting Gust Energy (RECHARGE) for small UAS. The Phase I implementation has already undergone high-fidelity simulation-based testing. These tests demonstrated that the system can increase the range, endurance, and survivability of currently manufactured UAS. The RECHARGE system incorporates an ...

  6. A Distributed Aperture Radar Technology for Enhanced Force Protection Against Tactical Airborne Threats


    Propagation Research Associates, Inc., (PRA) proposes to fabricate and demonstrate the performance of a prototype for the innovative distributed aperture radar technology designed in Phase I. The Phase I technology was designed to use waveform diversity for effective implementation of fire control and engagement capabilities to defeat multiple attacks from any direction. Force protection against l ...

  7. Dilution refrigerator technology for scalable quantum computing

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: A08T020

    Currently large capacity cryostats, capable of hosting experiments for many qubits, require expensive and hard to obtain liquid cryogens. A few small cryo-free systems exist but they are non-ideal for this use. An opportunity exists for a large scale, c

  8. ACCESS- ACCelerator for Electromagnetic Scattering Simulations

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: N091023

    Determining the scattering properties of small boats on a rough sea surface is a problem of high importance to the Navy. Due to the conducting nature of the surrounding water, the scattering signature of the boat cannot be determined just from a geometrical model in vacuum, but requires the simulation of its environment as well. The resulting simulations require large amounts of memory and computi ...

  9. Calibration techniques for very large arrays

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: MDA08030

    Phased array antenna systems are growing in use within military systems. These arrays of thousands of elements need precise control of the aperture distributions to meet requirements for gain, sidelobes, etc. Errors in these phase and amplitude distributions over time will degrade the performance of these apertures. FIRST RF favors simple concepts with little or no hardware impact that fully ch ...

  10. Situation Awareness Assessment Tools for Network Enabled Command and Control Field Evaluations

    SBC: SA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A08058

    Given the complexity of current military operations, a critical need exists for tools to objectively and reliably assess warfighter situation awareness (SA), particularly in the challenging environments of network centric warfare. The ability to validly quantify warfighter SA offers significant flexibility and diagnosticity to researchers and provides a means by which to evaluate the utility of sy ...
