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. Turn-Key Small Satellite Thruster with On-Demand Pressurization and Non-Toxic Propellant

    SBC: Benchmark Space Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF183005

    As the new space revolution develops, the number of small satellites is expected to grow to thousands launched each year. Following the current commercial satellite demonstration period, production spacecraft and constellations will depend on innovative micro-scaled propulsion technology to meet mission capability and endurance requirements. Most satellite integrators and end-users have not yet id ...

  4. Turn-Key Small Satellite Thruster with On-Demand Pressurization and Non-Toxic Propellant

    SBC: Benchmark Space Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF183005

    The overall objective of this SBIR project is to adapt Benchmark Space Systems commercially-available chemical propulsion system, the B125, for use in Air Force small satellite missions. During Phase I of the project, Benchmark Space personnel worked with customer/end-users from the AFRL SSP to identify the modifications required to adapt the B125 to meet current and future needs of the broad USAF ...

  5. Fast Optical Limiters (OL) with Enhanced Dynamic Range

    SBC: ADVANCED PHOTON SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: AF17AT029

    Optical limiters (OL) protect sensitive optical and electronic devices from laser-induced damage. The existing passive OL utilize nonlinear optical materials transmitting low-intensity light, while blocking laser radiation with intensity exceeding certain limiting threshold (LT). The common problem with the existing OL is that, at any particular frequency range, the choice of suitable nonlinear ...

  6. Optimized Information Display for Tactical Air Control Party

    SBC: CREATIVE MICROSYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: AF151019

    Tactical Air Control Party (TACP) personnel juggle disparate tasks simultaneously. Their task simultaneously require physically grueling output, instantaneous information processing, clear communication and instantaneous decision-making. The current system provides capabilities far beyond their predecessors but with drawbacks: an information-rich battlefield requires increased time looking at ches ...

  7. Optimized Information Display for Tactical Air Control Party

    SBC: CREATIVE MICROSYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: AF151019

    ABSTRACT:Tactical Air Control Parties (TACP) and Joint Terminal Air Controller (JTAC) deploy with not only a significant amount of gear, but also a large work load in order to manage all of their responsibilities. As the battlefield becomes more digitized, it is forcing TACPs/JTACs (which we will refer to as just TACPs for brevity in the document) to deal with more information than their current s ...

  9. High Flow Gain Inlet Cover Treatment for Inducer Cavitation Suppression

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: AF121188

    ABSTRACT: Cavitation which leads to head falloff and feed system instabilities are a constant source of problems for the low net positive suction head (NPSH) pumps that are needed for advanced liquid rocket engines. Head falloff limits the pumps capability to deliver propellant at the required pressure and cavitation induced instabilities are a significant source of structural failures in rocket ...

  10. Radiation-hardened, Non-volatile Memory for Aerospace and Defense Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED PHOTON SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: AF112087

    ABSTRACT: A need exists for a reliable, low cost radiation-hardened, non-volatile (NV) memory in aerospace and defense applications and in reliable, long-life, high-speed NV memory for terrestrial and commercial applications. Present offerings can accomplish the objective, but only at the expense of performance, power, size, and weight. Recent refocus on magnetic memory technologies, stemming f ...
