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. Radio Frequency (RF) Tomography for Reduction of Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Threat

    SBC: REMSENSE, INC.            Topic: AF083145

    This proposal address the applicability of the RF tomography concept to the detection of IEDs. In the proposal, RemSense, Inc. presents a clear Phase I path to establishing the RF tomography concept for this use by presenting a preliminary overview of the potential algorithms used for the concept. Further, RemSense has arranged a teaming agreement with FIRST RF corporation to take measurement da ...

  2. Integrated Power Generation for Small Unmanned Vehicles

    SBC: Engine Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: OSD08UM5

    This program will integrate a lightweight, high efficiency alternator with a quiet, fuel efficient and high power density heavy fuel engine. The electrical power source uses a proprietary, compact and very high power-to-weight alternator using rare earth permanent magnets. It is scalable from 0.5 to 70 kW and larger. MAI''s alternator will be integrated with Engine Research Associates (ERA) Mig ...

  3. Fretting Wear Elimination for Titanium Components

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF083072

    The development of the F-35 Lift Fan has revealed the possibility of fretting between the fan input shaft bearing OD surface and the titanium bearing supports in the Lift Fan gearbox housing.  A steel insert is currently used to provide protection against fretting of the gearbox housing.  In order to provide an effective solution and reduce the overall weight of the F-35, IBC Materials and Techn ...

  4. Fretting Wear Elimination in Gear Box Housings

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: N/A

    A new high-performance anti-wear coating is being developed under an SBIR program with the Air Force Research Laboratorys Materials Directorate for the Joint Strike Fighter. This coating is based on the Micro-Plasma Oxidation process, which is a high-voltage electrochemical process of oxidation which creates micro discharges on the surface of the part immersed in an electrolyte. This results in th ...

  5. Design Tools for Combustion Stability

    SBC: IN SPACE, L.L.C.            Topic: AF083112

    The combination of complex physics and extremely severe combustor environments presents a formidable challenge to engineers who must ensure that high-pressure, high-performance rocket engines are stable from combustion instabilities.  We propose here an improved methodology for predicting the combustion stability of oxidizer-rich staged-combustion engines.   The methodology integrates high-fide ...

  6. COMPREHENSIVE JP-8 MECHANISM FOR VITIATED FLOWS

    SBC: INNOVATIVE ENERGY SOLUTION            Topic: AF081057

    Despite the importance of jet fighter afterburner designs, there exists very little data on the majority of the individual components of jet fuel, especially JP-8, to enable development of a detailed kinetic mechanism. Although the Multi University Research Initiative program has been initiated for that purpose, it is oriented for the main engine combustor where the process is different from after ...

  7. Algorithm Development for Reconfigurable Computing Architectures

    SBC: MNB TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF07T017

    High performance reconfigurable computing (HPRC) is an expanding technology offering workstations and small clusters performance levels previously reserved for large-scale systems populating the Supercomputing 500 list. However, the lack of open-source libraries of generically applicable numeric methods (i.e. BLAS, LAPACK, Numeric Recipes, etc.) optimized for FPGA embodiment has hindered adoption ...

  8. Full Multiplex Holographic Display (FMHD)

    SBC: MNB TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF083019

    Our novel, holistic approach to real time synthetic holography will result in an end-to-end solution for synthesis and presentation of large format high definition polychromatic holograms at video frame rates.  Since a holographic display without an associated system for interference pattern synthesis from non-holographic source media is of limited value, we propose parallel development of the la ...

  9. Advanced Heat Exchanger (HEX) Scaling Methodologies for High-Performance Aircraft

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: AF073050

    The current thermal management effort for high performance aircraft focuses much attention on more efficient energy rejection through the development of advanced heat exchanger technologies.  PC Krause and Associates (PCKA) is currently filling a much-needed gap of scaling and performance knowledge in the Air Force Phase I SBIR effort.  3-D computational fluid dynamics models have been construct ...

  10. Light Emitting Diode Technology Deployment Involving an Aerospace Light Application Manufacture

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: AF083065

    The Techshot LED Navigational Light Bulb (LED NAV LB) is the "next generation" light bulb incorporating state-of-the-art, robust solid state circuitry. A properly sized LED light grid will guarantee a long, maintenance free life at least 10 times longer than the current incandescent lamp. The Techshot LED system takes advantage of the currently approved for use bayonet lamp base as used on the M ...
