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. Through Screen Optical Head Tracker


    A critical military requirement exists for a fast, cost-effective, six-degrees-of-freedom (6DOF) technology that can track a pilot's helmet though rear-projection screens and is immune to distortion and interference from scatterers of magnetic/electrical energy. Building upon Phase I research that demonstrated feasibility of projecting light energy through graphics projection screens, Ascension T ...

  2. Continuous, On-line, Low-cost Monitor to Detect Arsenic in Water

    SBC: BRIMS NESS CORP.            Topic: AF04302

    The EPA has imposed a maximum contaminant level for arsenic at 10 ppb, which poses a tough standard for a significant number of the nation's community drinking water systems. One major issue relates to how the utility knows when the filtration media has saturated with the removed arsenic and needs regeneration or replacement. The current method of monitoring the filtration system effectiveness i ...

  3. Knowledge-Based Multi-Diciplinary Optimization of Rocket Turbopump Design

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: AF04199

    The design of turbomachinery components is a complex process requiring many steps and hundreds of minute decisions in an iterative process. The design proceeds from meanline design through 3D viscous flow calculations (CFD) and finite element structural analysis (FEA). Design studies may traverse this design cycle many times, with routine tasks performed by engineers in a trial-and-error manner. ...

  4. Common Aero Vehicle Acreage Thermal Protection System

    SBC: Fiber Materials, Inc.            Topic: AF03019

    Fiber Materials Inc. teamed with Boeing Corporation propose to design and manufacture representative Common Aero-Vehicle (CAV) acreage TPS sections that will satisfactorily fulfill the currently planned trajectory for the global reach vehicle. The TPS sections will include the aero-shell surface structure (including any coatings or treatments), insulating materials, and support structures. This ...

  5. High-Efficiency Amplifiers with Discretely Variable Output Power

    SBC: Green Mountain Radio Research Company            Topic: AF02201

    Space-based radar (SBR) requires multiple RF power amplifiers (PAs) to drive phased-arrays antennas. Control of the beam direction requires an amplitude range of 22 dB, and coupling between elements results in load impedances with significant mismatch. Both factors make conventional linear RF PAs very inefficient. The proposed approach employs a high-efficiency RF PA, class-S modulator, and e ...

  6. Innovative Technologies for Reducing Unexploded Ordnance (UXO)

    SBC: Morrison, Victoria Hartlove            Topic: AF04157

    The development of Innovative Technologies for Reducing Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) provides critical technology to eliminate Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) with the potential to maim and kill. Once deployed, if the fuze did not function as designed, it would become safe and unable to detonate. The proposed technology would eliminate the highly sensitive nature of UXO's that exist today and eliminate t ...

  7. Improved Life Prediction of Turbine Engine Components

    SBC: PEREGRINE CONSULTING, INC.            Topic: AF03112

    The purpose of the proposed Phase II research is to develop a prototype of the TFLAMES core software model. This model and attendant sub-routines will make it possible to calculate the stress and life of each individual engine component using actual flight data in near-real time, replacing the current method of using analysis of generic missions and bookkeeping Total Accumulated Cycles (TAC). In ...

  8. Novel Flame and Impact Resistant Foam Core

    SBC: Tex Tech Industries Inc.            Topic: AF03122

    Our country is now faced with new challenging terrorist threats to our civil infrastructure and transportation segments. Meeting these challenges will require high performance material developments on a grand scale, which have the capability of meeting minimum ballistic requirements from handgun threats and the containment of high velocity fragments from the use of explosive devices. In Phase I a ...
