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: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF131204

    ABSTRACT: The floor of an ALC is like a well-orchestrated dance. However, when an unexpected failure occurs, it can introduce significant delays in not only the specific aircraft"s maintenance, but of the entire network of systems. 21st Century Systems, Inc. (21CSi) is in the position to answer this challenge with a concept called Reactive Aircraft Maintenance System via Evolutionary Schedul ...

  2. Low Cost Small Sample Volume High Precision Carbon Dioxide Analyzer

    SBC: LI-COR BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: 18a

    The increasing concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is changing the earths climate. Climate change will cause periods of extremely high daily temperatures, increase the frequency of heavy rainfall, intensify droughts, increase the maximum wind speed of cyclones, and cause sea levels to rise. The unavailability of low-cost, high-performance atmospheric carbon dioxide analyzers constrai ...

  3. Voxel-based Fusion (VOXION)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF13AT01

    ABSTRACT: In ISR applications, multiple sensors can be employed to achieve more accurate parameters of interest on targets, improving discrimination and detection. But, the proliferation of sensor systems has created a large volume of multi-sensor data across a number of physical spectra. These resulting measurements can be so disparate that traditional aggregation methods perform poorly given h ...

  4. Low Cost Small Sample Volume High Precision Carbon Dioxide Analyzer

    SBC: LI-COR BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: 18a

    LI-COR Biosciences proposes to develop a new sensor that measures the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere with precision of 1 part in 3000 within one minute, requires only small amounts of gas, operates unattended in the field for at least 6 months, costs less than $5000, and is insensitive to motion. The sensor will advance a technology known as optical feedback cavity enhanced abso ...

  5. Autonomously Locating to Perch and Stare (ALPS)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: OSD12AU3

    Small Unmanned Air Systems (SUAS) are being developed for numerous applications, but size and weight constraints severely limit the capability and endurance of such vehicles. Many missions could be extended by landing for certain periods, entering a low-power state, and re-launching as needed, particularly in urban environments. Technologies have been developed to provide landing gear and flight ...

  6. Fusion with Uncertainty Reasoning using Nested Assessment Characterizer Elements (FURNACE)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: OSD11DR5

    Situation/threat modeling and threat prediction require higher levels of data fusion to provide actionable information to the warfighter. Beyond sensor data and sources the analyst has control over, the use of out-sourced and re-sourced data are becoming more common. However, the current data fusion techniques do not account for the potential bias, ambiguity, and uncertainty in these other sources ...

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF103035

    ABSTRACT: Airspace congestion with RPAs in close proximity to manned systems poses a serious threat for mishap. At present, RPA pilot training in airspace management is minimal. RPA operator training should consider communications, asset management, deconfliction, and coordination among RPA and manned system pilots, and air battle management personnel. 21st Century Systems, Inc. (21CSI), which h ...

  8. Concurrent Agent-enabled Feature Extraction (CAFÉ)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T017

    High fidelity simulations of complex systems still pose a challenge to the scientist trying to understand its physical characteristics. The challenge is in finding useful bits in terabytes of data that directly relate to the nature of time-varying, multivariate data. An intelligent data mining capability is needed that has both knowledge (descriptive physics) and foresight (cognitive model of user ...

  9. Video20/20

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF083016

    The monitoring of multiple UAV video sources is challenging, in part, due to the poor quality of the video received. Significant video degrading is caused by clouds, haze, and dust in the atmosphere; jitter and blurring from the UAV platform motion; and low video resolution due to sensor characteristics and high altitude flying. Higher quality video would alleviate much of the challenge for the o ...

  10. SCADA Hawk – An Integrated Anti-Tamper Technology

    SBC: Technical Support Inc.            Topic: OSD09T003

    Our proposal is to develop SCADA Hawk: an integrated anti-tamper technology that uses a hardware-software combined methodology for the observational monitoring of existing systems with selective reaction capabilities. By enabling detailed monitoring capabilities our goal is to isolate anomalies in system behavior and take preventive measures. While profiling of normal behavior on traditional IT s ...
