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. Eigen-Similarity Integral (ESI)- A New Concept for Invariant Image Similarity Detection

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Most of today's precision guided weapons use Global Positioning System (GPS) signals to gain improved accuracy. But, as Operation Iraqi Freedom recently showed, foreign militaries have equipment to locally jam GPS signals. Another effective method ofautonomous navigation is necessary to ensure mission success. Similar to rudimentary terrain recognition used in early cruise missiles, the matching o ...

  2. Production of Ready-to-use DNA-based Diagnostics Kit for Dengue Virus Detection

    SBC: ACCESS BIO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Dengue fever and dengue hemorrhagic fever/dengue shock syndrome (DHF/DSS) have emerged as the most important arthropod-borne viral diseases of humans. There are four distinct dengue virus types (DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3, and DEN-4), each capable of causingdisease in humans. The conserved 3¿_-noncoding sequences of four dengue virus serotypes have been successfully utilized to develop as a TaqMan-based ...

  3. NET- Selective Ligands for the Treatment of Depression

    SBC: Acenta Discovery, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): World-wide public health surveys point to an increased global health burden for serious psychiatric disorders, particularly depression. Indeed, by 2020 it is expected that depression may be the second most serious medical condition with respect to global disease burden. It is clear that more effective pharmacotherapies are needed in treating depressive illn ...

  4. Advanced Computational Algorithms for Simulating Weapon-Target Interaction

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This STTR project will develop and validate a robust, scalable computational capability for the simulation of weapon-target interactions of interest to the Army. The proposed algorithm is based on the FLIP (Fluid Implicit Particle) - MPM (Material PointMethod) - MFM (Multiphase Flow Method) approach and the CartaBlanca nonlinear solver environment developed at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Car ...

  5. Real-Time Prognostic Health Management for Fault Tolerant Airborne Laser Systems

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The proposed project will demonstrate the feasibility of developing a data driven prognostic fault tolerant smart weapon system concept for the Airborne Laser. A real-time prognostic health management (PHM) system will be developed to track the likelihoodof future system or subsystem failures and initiate or indicate appropriate actions to maintain or optimize system performance. A library of pr ...

  6. Dual use, non-cryogenic operating temperature, mid-infrared laser

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Future IRCM laser transmitters are being developed based on optically pumped GaSb mid-infrared semiconductor laser, however, the current technology requires the laser to be operated at cryogenic temperature. Aculight and MIT Lincoln Laboratory propose toinvestigate methods to increase the operating temperature of these semiconductor lasers, which will dramatically decrease the cost of the laser t ...

  7. Application of Cortical Processing Theory to Acoustical Analysis

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc. (AAC) proposes to implement a computational model of human auditory processing based upon cortical theory and to demonstrate its utility to evaluate and improve systems for speech communication and automated recognition ofspectro-temporal patterns. Specifically, AAC believes that unusual brain representations and processing strategies are largely responsible for th ...

  9. Multi-functional nanocomposite materials with high-temperature polymer resin matrice

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Composites that are reinforced with well-dispersed carbon nanotubes have been shown to improve the performance of polymers in many areas such as stiffness, heat distortion temperature, control of thermal coefficient of expansion, and corrosion resistancein extreme environments. However, much of the nanocomposite related research and development has not been directly relevant to carbon fiber reinfo ...

  10. A novel micro-channel heat exchanger for high heat flux electronics

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I STTR program, a team consisting of Advanced Ceramics Research Inc. (ACR) and the University of Arizona (UA) propose to develop and optimize a novel, low-cost, integrated micro-channel heat exchanger system for high power electronicapplications. In radar and other applications involving power electronics, thermal dissipation from the electronics approach levels as high as 1000 W/cm ...
