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. Fast Beam-Switching Kickers

    SBC: Electrodynamic            Topic: 29d

    The next generation nuclear physics accelerator facility, the Electron Ion Collider (EIC), will accelerate and collide spin polarized electrons and ions focused to an unprecedented density at their point of collision- To achieve the desired electron/ion density at the focal point, random velocity variations in the ions will be reduced using the technique of electron cooling- In this technique, the ...

  3. Drag Removal by Autonomous Grapple (DRAG)

    SBC: LOADPATH, LLC            Topic: AF173016

    For the entire spacecraft community including current and future developers and operators whose hardware is inherently at risk from catastrophic collisions with space debris, the Drag Removal by Autonomous Grapple (DRAG) is an autonomous payload system that docks to identified space debris and increases drag with a deployable sail to accelerate de-orbit times by at least an order of magnitude.Unli ...

  4. Prognostics Approaches for Remote Piloted Aircraft (RPA) Propulsion and Vehicle Systems in Harsh Environments

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: AF121170

    This is a follow-on SBIR Phase II as a result of a fully executed SBIR Technology Transition Plan to transition MSIs COgnitive Stochastic MOdeling System (COSMOS) in a microsystem hardware to increase reliability of systems and components which would reduce maintenance and increase operational availability, which reduces the number of aircraft needed to complete missions. ACC and the AFRL propulsi ...

  5. Verification and Validation of Algorithms for Resilient Complex Software Controlled Systems

    SBC: XL Scientific, LLC dba Verus Research            Topic: AF17CT05

    Verification of the Guidance, Navigation and Control (GN&C) algorithms and software utilized onboard spacecraft is of paramount importance to ensure resilient, correct operation after launch. Rather than wait until the GN&C software has been deployed to perform on-orbit verification, offline verification integrated into the design process will improve mission performance, significantly reduce the ...

  6. Resonant Polarimetry and Magnetometry

    SBC: Electrodynamic            Topic: 25e

    The next generation DOE physics accelerator, The Electron Ion Collider (EIC) will collide spin oriented electrons and ions with unprecedented focus at the interaction point. For accelerator operators to maintain these spin polarized beams they must have a way to noninvasively measure spin orientation as the beam travels through the accelerator. To achieve the unprecedented focus at the collision p ...

  7. Portable, low power soil gas analyzer

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 19a

    There is a need for soil gas analyzers to characterize subsurface biogeochemical processes by measuring simultaneously multiple gases that are signatures for specific processes. Instruments should be significantly more portable and require less power than what is currently available. The analyzers need to be suitable for field work and laboratory studies. How This Problem is Being Addressed: Rugge ...

  8. A Compact, High Intensity Laser Source for Inverse Compton Scattering

    SBC: Voss Scientific, LLC            Topic: 20a

    A new diagnostic is currently being developed by Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) which will be able to provide direct measurements for the energy and density of “runaway” electrons in tokamak fusion reactors with unprecedented resolution. The multi-MeV, runaways pose a serious risk to tokamak reactors; capable of inflicting catastrophic damage to the armor and vessel walls. A proper diag ...

  9. Optical Vortices through Laser Beam Engineering for Remote Sensing Applications

    SBC: OPTICSLAH, LLC            Topic: 01d

    Because it can be used in situ without the need for any sample preparation, optical emission spectroscopy (OES) techniques, such as laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) are favored as a spectroscopic tool to remotely detect and interrogate nuclear materials. Although they have been successfully demonstrated in the lab, results taken at test fields are lacking because high laser intensity is ...

  10. MgB2-coated Superconducting Radio-frequency Cavities for Next-generation Accelerators

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: 26c

    Radio-frequency cavities are at the heart of particle accelerators used for nuclear and high-energy physics research, medical treatment, pollution control, clean energy production, development of new materials, and national security. The most advanced accelerators utilize cavities that are made from superconducting materials. However, the performance of these cavities is reaching a fundamental lim ...
