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. Concurrent Agent-enabled Feature Extraction (CAFÉ)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T017

    High fidelity, large scale simulations of complex systems pose a very difficult situation to the scientist trying to understand the physical domain and characteristics of their system. Often, it is impossible to manually search through the data that can come out of these simulations, which may range from Gigabytes to Terabytes. Furthermore, it may be impossible to visualize the multi-dimensional i ...

  2. CoolAID

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T002

    Providing commanders with accurate, on-the-spot, clear, concise, usable information wins battles and saves lives. With incoming information from many heterogeneous sources, the focus has been primarily on determining what information to present, and visual ways of communicating the information. There has been less research on what makes information actionable, or on what additional communication c ...

  3. Space-ACE

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF083039

    There is a need for a next-generation integrative decision support system for Space Control operations. This next-generation system should provide high-level capabilities for managing case files containing evidence, expert opinions, and data relationships. The system should enhance operator awareness by highlighting salient aspects of the case file, critical relationships, and confidence assessmen ...

  4. Video20/20

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF083016

    The monitoring of multiple UAV video sources is challenging, in part, due to the poor quality of the video received.  Significant video degrading is caused by clouds, haze, and dust in the atmosphere; jitter and blurring from the UAV platform motion; and low video resolution due to sensor characteristics and high altitude flying. Higher quality video would alleviate much of the challenge for the ...

  5. Variable Thrust/Specific Impulse Electrospray Propulsion

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: AF08BT09

    Yale University and Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) propose to develop a single propellant electrospray micro-thruster for space propulsion with a wide specific impulse range, from 500s at the low end to >2500s, with the goal of 10,000s, while maximizing the performance. Three key prior accomplishments have motivated the formation of this team: Yale, working with ARL has demonstrated M ...

  6. A fast pulsed, high flux neutron source for remote 3D imaging of IEDs

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: AF073009

    ABSTRACT: Alameda Applied Sciences Corp proposes to develop a fast pulse, portable, fast neutron source to detect IED in the field. Our source offers a

  7. CLAD: Classification Labeling of Aggregated Data

    SBC: 21ct, Inc.            Topic: AF083040

    CLAD is a web service to ensure that all data entering a network is properly labeled, and that the aggregate data available to users is within their clearance. CLAD verifies all incoming data as properly labeled, adds the metadata of each document to the metadata of the collection, conducts a shallow analysis to determine if a reclassification of documents as a collection is needed, compares docum ...

  8. ARCHIVE: Adaptive Responses to Context and History in Video Exploitation

    SBC: 21ct, Inc.            Topic: AF083136

    Archive enables improved exploitation of persistent wide-area sensors. These sensors offer new capabilities for maintaining battlefield situational awareness, but realization of their benefits is blocked by bandwidth limitations that prevent sending all the imagery to the ground, and by human limitations that slow interpretation of large data volumes. In Archive, foveated (variable resolution) ima ...

  9. Spotter: Target Acquisition in Large Format Imagery

    SBC: 21ct, Inc.            Topic: AF073076

    The Spotter Phase 2 effort augments the successful Phase 1 approach to provide advanced automatic target acquisition algorithms tailored to exploit large format (LF) imagery. 21st Century Technologies, Inc. (21CT) proposes a suite of detection algorithms specifically designed to address the challenges of wide area aerial surveillance and reconnaissance. Spotter automatically detects vehicular targ ...

  10. Autonomous Vehicle Awareness Sensors

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: AF083194

    AKELA is proposing to use a small, low cost, low power radar with operating parameters that can be quickly changed to explore the issues associated with the detection of moving targets from spaceborne platforms.  The radar will be used as a baseline to compare against other implementation alternatives in a simulation to investigate the trade space, and to use the trade-off results to perform a co ...
