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. Additive Manufacturing of High-Index Photonic Circuits

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: AF141173

    "ABSTRACT: Modern electronic and opto-electronic devices are predicated on controlled deposition and patterning of functional material layers (e.g. semiconductors, conductors, and dielectrics). A handful of techniques, including vacuum epitaxy and chemical vapor deposition, in conjunction with lithographic micromachining methods, have long dominated the manufacture of these systems, particularly ...

  2. Additive manufacturing of high-index photonic circuits

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: AF141173

    ABSTRACT:Modern electronic and opto-electronic devices are predicated on controlled deposition and patterning of functional material layers (e.g. semiconductors, conductors, and dielectrics). Vacuum epitaxy and chemical vapor deposition, in conjunction with lithographic methods, have dominated the manufacture of these systems. While these techniques are well-established and routinely deliver relia ...

  3. Advanced Li ion battery with improved cycling stability

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF151085

    ABSTRACT:State of art Li ion batteries are not able to meet the energy density and charge-discharge cycling stability requirements for the satellite applications for DoD. The primary problems are the structural instability and the low electronic conductivity of the Li rich transition metal oxide based cathode materials during the charge-discharge cycling operation. Specifically, during the charge- ...

  4. Automated Assessment of Damage to Infrastructure

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: AF151008

    ABSTRACT:Current battle damage assessments for post energetic events are often reliant on subjective observations and can take time to gather a complete picture of the damage and the remaining useful life of the tactical structure. TRI/Austin proposes to develop an automated damage assessment toolkit that can reduce analysis time and provide a clearer projection of the remaining usefulness of the ...

  5. Automated Surface Microstructure Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) Process for Aerospace Materials

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: AF141169

    ABSTRACT:Building upon its successful effort to identify grain structures in titanium alloys, in Phase II, TRI/Austin will use a combination of highly focused polyvinylidene floride (PVDF) ultrasonic (UT) transducers and high gain amplifiers to perform ultrasonic backscattering measurements to identify signals corresponding to the grain structure in commercially pure Ti and Ti-6Al-4V. TRI/Austin w ...

  8. Built in Test (BIT) Capability for Multi-Mode (MM) Fiber Data Networks

    SBC: Crossfield Technology Llc            Topic: AF151051

    ABSTRACT:Fiber optic network connections onboard airborne platforms must operate in extreme environmental conditions. As a result, these fibers degrade over time leading to faults and reduced performance. A Built-In Test (BIT) capability for the fiber optic transceivers in the embedded systems is required to monitor the fiber optic health and provide diagnostics for rapid repair in the event of fa ...

  9. Bulk Non-Equilibrium Materials by Shockwave Consolidation

    SBC: TXL GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF141006

    ABSTRACT: Phase 1 research will validate an approach for material synthesis that combines mechanical alloying with explosive powder consolidation to produce bulk materials with novel properties. The main advantage to the approach is that it can be applied to diverse material systems, including the creation of alloys with otherwise insoluble constituents. An additional advantage is that it has a ...
