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. Wideband Filter Networks for Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) Size, Weight, and Power (SWAP) Reduction

    SBC: Active Spectrum, Inc.            Topic: A07086

    We propose a novel, high performance tunable narrowband bandpass preselect filter that is capable of continuously tuning from 400MHz - 3GHz. The proposed filter offers an order of magnitude reduction in SWAP-C, small size (1/2" x 1/2" x 1/4"), low cost and minimal power consumption. The proposed design uses conventional fabrication processes and inexpensive off-the-shelf commercially available com ...

  2. A Novel Integrated Model of Missile and Munition Thermal Batteries

    SBC: Erigo Technologies LLC            Topic: A06021

    Thermal batteries are the power source of choice for many weapon systems. While thermal batteries offer designers several key advantages, the design and integration of this technology into new applications suffers from two significant impediments. The first is the lack of suitable design tools, and the second is the time-consuming and expensive effort necessary to qualify a new battery design thro ...

  3. Acoustic Surveillance System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A08113

    The military needs better methods of monitoring remote facilities to protect them against burglary and vandalism. Many of these facilities cover large areas, contain numerous buildings and other valuable assets, and are at high risk for theft. New acoustic monitoring technologies are needed that will allow deployment of large numbers of low-cost, autonomous sensors. Each sensor must provide rel ...

  4. Reactive Flash Volatilization JP-8 Reformer

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A08T023

    Compact, efficient, and sustainable electric power generators are needed to provide electric power for deployed military operations. In order to meet logistical requirements, the military is seeking to convert combustion-powered systems to a common fuel: JP-8. Generators that operate on JP-8 fuel are currently available for powers above 2,000 W-electric, and batteries generally meet power needs ...

  5. Urban Seismic Surveillance System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A08114

    Lack of situational awareness in urban environments is a significant problem. In-city ground assets are vulnerable and airborne assets are expensive and limited. Seismic surveillance using offset arrays offers a solution that is persistent, stealthy, defendable, and relatively inexpensive. Difficulties, though, include detecting anomalous activity within the high levels of background activity a ...

  6. Self-Powered Microclimate Cooling System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A08116

    Microclimate cooling is a critical need for soldiers serving in hot climates. Power requirements for conventional cooling approaches can add considerable battery mass to the system, since refrigeration consumes a large amount of power and systems must run for four or more hours without recharge. We propose to develop an innovative, lightweight microclimate cooling system that includes an integra ...

  7. Serious Game for Rehabilitation of Auditory Processing Disorders

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: OSD08H02

    A large proportion of patients suffering from blast-related injuries also suffer from traumatic brain injury. Traumatic brain injury often leads to communication impairments associated with (central) auditory processing disorders ((C)APD). Properly designed auditory training has been shown to improve central auditory processing in patients suffering from (C)APD. Creare’s Serious Game for the ...

  8. A Fast Acting Solid-State Circuit Breaker for Electrical Power Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: OSD08EP6

    Increased demands for electric vehicle performance have resulted in large power requirements and the potential for extremely large fault currents. This is true not only for over-the-road electric and hybrid vehicles, but also for ships and aircraft, which are increasingly moving toward all-electric propulsion. Without fast and reliable means to limit fault currents and isolate faulted sections, ...

  9. A High-Temperature Battlefield Fuel Vaporization Membrane

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A06173

    The Army seeks to standardize all equipment on its battlefield logistics fuel, JP-8. JP-8 is difficult to use for small-scale, low-power applications, however, since its low vapor pressure and complex composition inhibit complete vaporization. Existing methods for vaporizing logistics fuels are not sufficiently controllable to support highly efficient catalytic combustion processes, or impose un ...

  10. CFD Toolkit for Modeling Parachutists in Freefall

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A07182

    A recent increase in the occurrence of pilot parachute deployment hesitation events during training has focused attention on the flow field about parachutists in freefall. An improved understanding of this flow will contribute to better equipment and improved safety. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis is a powerful technique for exploring such flows. Once validated against experimental d ...
