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. Development and Optimization of Innovative 3D “Confetti” Miniature Antennas for HF Communications

    SBC: Aerotonomy, Incorporated            Topic: N06T032

    Aerotonomy, Incorporated, and our research institution partner Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) propose to Design and optimize a miniature 3D fragmented “Confetti” antenna for application to broadband voice communications over the frequency range of 2 to 30 MHz. The Confetti antenna is an arrangement of partially interconnected wires on a three-dimensional grid. The concept is similar t ...

  2. Polarization-Enhanced Sun-Glint Imaging for Measuring Ocean Wave Statistics

    SBC: Airborne Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N06002

    The U.S. Navy is in need of a data collection system for developing a statistical model in terms of probability distribution functions of surface wave slopes. Airborne Technologies, Inc. proposes a unique method of using a dual polarization enhanced sun glint imaging system design that will image sun glints from waves of modest-to-large slopes. We will use optical polarization to enhance the con ...

  3. Multi-Purpose Antenna

    SBC: Alaska Native Technologies, LLC            Topic: N06038

    Currently the E-2C is covered with antennas for VHF/UHF line of sight, UHF satellite communications, L-band and GPS functions. There is a need to condense some of these functions into a single aperture to free up real estate on the aircraft for future additions and cut down on interference between the antennas. Combining these functions into a single multi-function antenna with a weight less than ...

  4. Pier-Side, Bow Sonar Calibration Methodology for Wave Piercing Hull Forms

    SBC: Alaska Native Technologies, LLC            Topic: N06139

    Alaska Native Technologies, LLC proposes to develop a Near-Field Acoustic Holographic Calibration System that would be integrated into a wave piercing Bow Sonar to provide in-port calibration capability for a vessel.

  5. Vertical Linear Accelerator for Dynamic Visual-Vestibular Acuity Health Status Evaluation and Desensitization Training

    SBC: ANCO ENGINEERS, INC.            Topic: OSD05H13

    Military platforms expose personnel to extreme vertical vibrations. These vibrations can induce visual-vestibular disturbance or even permanent injury, resulting in spatial-disorientation-related mishaps or decreased performance due to motion-sickness. ANCO Engineers, Inc. proposes to investigate the feasibility of a human-rated, computer-controlled, innovative Vertical Linear Accelerator (VLA) ...

  6. Hybrid Propulsion Systems for Undersea Weapons

    SBC: BARBER-NICHOLS INC.            Topic: N05T024

    This STTR focuses on design of a hybrid propulsion system for a heavyweight torpedo. The hybrid torpedo propulsion system is designed to allow effective operation over a large turndown ratio, improving the weapon’s suitability for a broad range of missions including littoral water duty. The improved flexibility of hybrid torpedoes should improve the Pk and Pck (probability of kill, probability ...

  7. Novel Manufacturing Process for High Power Laminated Lithium-Ion Batteries

    SBC: BOUNDLESS CORP.            Topic: OSD05MT7

    Boundless proposes to show the feasibility of an entirely new manufacturing process to enable efficient long-run or short-run production of a completely new, high-power, low-cost, lithium-ion polymer battery. Boundless will work with Lithium Technology Corporation to evaluate the feasibility of adapting existing battery manufacturing equipment to permit efficient short-run production and rapid ru ...

  8. High Density Solid State Memory for Avionic Network Applications

    SBC: Seakr Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N05141

    In their current state, memory density and its associated packaging costs will be a limiting factor in supporting the various Network Centric Warfare (NCW) mission capability packages that tomorrow's aircraft will be asked to perform. Any rugged memory platform, whether it is currently being developed or is a future revolutionary technology, will need to increase density to accommodate the need. ...

  9. Innovative Approaches to Serialize Aircraft Dynamic Components

    SBC: DIRECT MEASUREMENTS, INC.            Topic: N06021

    An innovative approach to serialize Navy/Marine aircraft dynamic components is proposed based on nesting the Data Matrix 2-D Code within the DMI proprietary Binary Code to produce a Unique Identifier (UID). The use of the two codes provides redundancy based on the use of two codes and the inherent redundancy of the DMI proprietary Binary Code provides additional backup for the UID. The inherent ...

  10. Automated EO/IR Detection Techniques For Floating Objects

    SBC: ECORTEX, INC.            Topic: N06136

    We propose to research the application of our novel object detection and classification approach to floating objects using EO/IR sensors. The approach is based on a biologically realistic neural network simulation of the mammalian visual system that has shown promising results in early tests. These results indicate that it will be able to supplement sonar-based systems to reduce false alerts as ...
