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. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Geoacoustic Sea Bottom Characterization Using Passive, Cost-Effective Sensors

    SBC: Alaska Native Technologies, LLC            Topic: N07157

    Alaska Native Technologies (ANT) and Johns Hopkins University-Applied Physics Lab (JHU-APL) have teamed to present an innovative, solution to the acoustic inversion sensor problem by combining a new, cost effective, high gain, broadband array (JHU, sponsored by ONR Code 32) with a new UUV (glider, ANT, sponsored by ONR Code 321) designed to operate in littoral areas that has extensive onboard proc ...

  5. Multi-Purpose Antenna

    SBC: Alaska Native Technologies, LLC            Topic: N06038

    The proposed MFA is a complex, highly integrated architecture comprising a number of distinct radiating structures in a very compact package. The antenna design centers around a pair of conical radiators, which are DC (Direct Current) connected to the chassis/fuselage of the aircraft, as required in MIL-E-5400. These conical radiators are shared for simultaneous operation on 30-88 MHz, 118-174 MHz ...

  6. Polarization-Enhanced Sun-Glint Imaging for Measuring Ocean Wave Statistics

    SBC: Airborne Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N06002

    The U.S. Navy is in need of a data collection system for developing a statistical model in terms of probability distribution functions of surface wave slopes. Airborne Technologies, Inc. proposes a unique method of using a dual polarization enhanced sun glint imaging system design that will image sun glints from waves of modest-to-large slopes. We will use optical polarization to enhance the con ...

  7. Multi-Purpose Antenna

    SBC: Alaska Native Technologies, LLC            Topic: N06038

    Currently the E-2C is covered with antennas for VHF/UHF line of sight, UHF satellite communications, L-band and GPS functions. There is a need to condense some of these functions into a single aperture to free up real estate on the aircraft for future additions and cut down on interference between the antennas. Combining these functions into a single multi-function antenna with a weight less than ...

  8. Pier-Side, Bow Sonar Calibration Methodology for Wave Piercing Hull Forms

    SBC: Alaska Native Technologies, LLC            Topic: N06139

    Alaska Native Technologies, LLC proposes to develop a Near-Field Acoustic Holographic Calibration System that would be integrated into a wave piercing Bow Sonar to provide in-port calibration capability for a vessel.

  9. Littoral Geoacoustic Surveys Using an Adaptive Network of Gliders

    SBC: Alaska Native Technologies, LLC            Topic: N04141

    Acoustic sensor systems are the backbone of both anti-submarine (ASW) and mine-countermeasure (MCM) systems. Inadequate knowledge of the acoustic environment, especially in denied areas, results from a lack of survey equipment, funding, and access to areas of tactical interest. Moreover, the acoustic environment can change substantially depending on conditions such as sound speed, water depth, an ...

  10. Dual-Mode Broadband Surface Ship, Hull Mounted, Mine Avoidance Sonar

    SBC: Alaska Native Technologies, LLC            Topic: N04071

    Alaska Native Technologies, LLC (ANT) proposes to develop a hull-mounted sonar system that would be integrated into the DD(X) HF Mine Avoidance Bow Sonar processing chain to provide search and identification of small objects in the water column ±60° swaths in front of the vessel. The proposed approach will develop a dual-mode broadband sonar system, capable of operating in either wide-beam or n ...
