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. Detecting Substandard, Nonconforming, Improperly Processed and Counterfeit Materiel

    SBC: Ocean Bay Information and Systems Management, LLC            Topic: DLA15C001

    Inspecting for and detecting counterfeit, unapproved material substitutions or substandard processed raw material using existing processes is difficult, time consuming and expensive.Ocean Bay, LLC and the Primary Investigator, Karen Bruer, formed a team consisting of Ocean Bay, LLC, Savanah River National Laboratory and Old Dominion University, to apply for DLA15C-001:Detecting Substandard, Noncon ...

  2. Detecting Substandard, Nonconforming, Improperly Processed and Counterfeit Materiel

    SBC: Ocean Bay Information and Systems Management, LLC            Topic: DLA15C001

    "Micro-calorimetry is a Nondestructive Test (NDT) capable of detecting heat characteristics that could identify improperly processed, counterfeit, substandard, nonconforming or fake raw material prior to materials introduction into end-product production cycles. Current calorimetric technology is an extremely sensitive, expensive and time consuming process, utilizing an adiabatic or semi-adiabat ...

  3. Volcanic Ash Analysis and Detection Technology

    SBC: Mobile Mapping Corporation            Topic: AF112184

    ABSTRACT:Aviation near volcanic plumes is dangerous because aircraft engines can be damaged if they ingest airborne ash and aerosols.Knowing the forecast location of an ash plume will improve aviation safety while reducing engine maintenance costs.Ash forecast models are immature.To improve their accuracy we have conducted research with volcanologists at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) re ...

  4. Production Methods and Software for NIST Calibration Phantoms

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: N/A

    Magnetic Resonance Imaging data needs to be calibrated using a universal standard. NIST and the ISMRM SQRM committee have developed the NIST/NIST MR phantom. The group had two phantoms manufactured to their specifications and these phantoms have been imaged at numerous imaging facilities. Sigma-K now proposes to develop a complete manufacturing method that will produce 50 MRI phantoms. These phant ...

  5. Improved Coupling Factor of Personal Cooling Systems

    SBC: Alaska Native Technologies, LLC            Topic: OSD11H06

    The Microclimate Cooling Unit will use magnetic energy to cause a temperature change in the exchanger to extract heat from the gel pack, which covers the primary area of heat loss on the human body at the neck and upper back, reducing the overall body temperature. Thermocouples will monitor the gel pack to allow the user to adjust the pack temperature to their needs.

  6. Volcanic Ash Analysis and Detection Technology

    SBC: Mobile Mapping Corporation            Topic: AF112184

    ABSTRACT: A refined volcanic plume model is proposed to evaluate improved forecasting of ash movement and dispersion. This refined model utilizes near real-time model calibration and validation, perspective satellite observation geometry, and future in-situ measurements for more accurate models and forecasts. BENEFIT: Aircraft safety utilizes coarse volcanic plume models and better models will ...

  7. Volcanic Ash Analysis and Detection Technology

    SBC: Polartronix            Topic: AF112184

    ABSTRACT: This proposal is to design an instrument that will detect and quantify volcanic ash hazards. A proof of concept model of the instrument will be constructed and tested. This instrument will measure overall density, particle size distribution and elemental composition. While the instrument in Phase 1 will not be certified to fly on a UAV, design elements will be incorporated for the goa ...

  8. Evolving Waveforms for Acoustic Material Identification

    SBC: Scientific Fishery Systems, Inc            Topic: N093198

    SciFish proposes to utilize Resonance Scattering Theory (RST) modeling to evolve a set of acoustic waveforms that provide optimal material identification while suppressing the affects of clutter and noise. Each waveform will be defined by its bandwidth, pulse width and signal type. Signal types will include FM, Hyperbolic FM, and Phase Shift Key Coded waveforms. An initial set of waveforms will be ...

  9. High Accuracy, Non-GPS Pose Estimation and Real-Time Depth Sensing

    SBC: TRX SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: SB082035

    As the threat landscape continues to evolve, modern forces and especially foot mounted soldiers are increasingly tasked with conducting operations in either complex urban or remote cavernous environments where GPS signals are severely corrupted and/or unusable. The ability to track and navigate in unfamiliar subsurface environments such as canyons, subterranean caves, mines or other manmade subsu ...

  10. Exercise Torpedo Buoyancy (Recovery) System

    SBC: Alaska Native Technologies, LLC            Topic: N07212

    ANT has recently developed a similar recovery system for our own autonomous vehicle. ANT’s current system lifts a vehicle of lighter negative buoyancy (~64lbs rather than 200 lbs). The system is also designed to operate at less maximum depth (200 m, rather than 900 ft). These changes will necessitate the use of a larger volume lift bag and a modified compressed gas canister for the MK54 torpe ...
