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. Wide Temperature, High Energy Density Capacitors for Power System Conditioning

    SBC: Active Signal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD09EP4

    Active Signal Technologies, in collaboration with Novacap and Alfred University, will advance the development of two bismuth sodium titanate (NBT) ceramic materials with very promising dielectric properties across the temperature range -55°C to 300°C. The work will include enhanced formulation variants and improved processing techniques to optimize for permittivity, loss, breakdown voltage and ...

  2. Two-Beam Transmit Satellite Antenna for Limited Field-of-View (FOV)


    The objective of this Phase II SBIR effort is to develop and demonstrate a low cost, lightweight, two independent simultaneous transmit beam antenna for use in SATCOM systems like the Transformational Satellite Communications System (TSAT) downlink. The current MILSATCOM system supports one downlink antenna beam in the frequency band 20.2-21.2 GHz. The goal of TSAT is to transform communications ...

  3. Doppler Asymmetric Spatial Heterodyne Spectrometer (DASH) for Measuring Winds in the Upper Atmosphere (90-300km)

    SBC: ARTEP, INC.            Topic: AF073103

    This scope of this Phase II proposal is to develop a space flight prototype Doppler Asymmetric Spatial Heterodyne (DASH) spectrometer for the measurement of upper atmospheric winds.  A space flight prototype instrument will be built and tested to show DASH can successfully measure simulated Doppler winds in an environment similar to the environment it would be operating in on orbit.  This Phase ...

  4. Rapid Design, Analysis, and Test of Hypersonic Propulsion Integrated Configurations

    SBC: ASTROX CORP.            Topic: AF073091

    The Air Force Research Laboratory Air Vehicles Directorate needs to be able to rapidly develop hypersonic vehicle concepts and to do so with as little risk as possible. A new technology called Rapid Prototyping will assist the Air Force in reducing risk in choosing the best path for fielding hypersonic vehicle systems. This technology will allow the rapid testing of many concepts, thus adding conc ...

  5. Distributed Real-Time Simulation and Network Monitoring Capability

    SBC: TECHNOLOGIES ENGINEERING INC            Topic: AF083132

    Technologies Engineering Inc (TEI) has developed a test control suite of software applications for the US Army. This application suite has equipped current users with a means of efficiently and effectively planning, scheduling, verifying, monitoring, and controlling test resources (to include verification of software applications); collecting and logging execution data; and after-action reporting ...

  6. Radar Database Portability and Hybridization

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGETICS, INC.            Topic: AF083151

    Measured radar data outputs behave differently depending upon the collection system. This makes comparison of competing hardware systems difficult. This research will develop a generic radar model that will incorporate representative linear and nonlinear components and determine the effect of these components on the output signal. This model will enable the radar acquisition community to evaluate ...

  7. Wideband DDS-based Programmable Frequency Synthesizer with Enhanced Phase-Noise and Spurious Free Dynamic Range Performance

    SBC: SOTEKCO LLC            Topic: AF083166

    This SBIR work plan consists of a research effort to explore and implement a three part innovation to achieve a wideband DDS-based programmable frequency synthesizer (PFS) with enhanced phase-noise and spurious free dynamic range (SFDR). The proposal summarizes the competitive advantages of various techniques for achieving PFS. This understanding provides the motivation for three innovations. Inn ...

  8. Chemical Kinetics for Vitiated Flows

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF081057

    The flame stability in typical augmenters is largely determined by vitiated air composition and high preheat temperature of the incoming flow. Presence of significant quantities of CO2 and H2O in the vitiated air will affect the oxidation characteristics of jet fuels by increasing the third-body collision efficiencies of initiation and recombination reactions. Traditionally, kinetic models are va ...

  9. Improved Two-Phase Model for JP-8 and Alternative Fuels

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF083103

    Augmentor stability is a major issue for the design of reliable engines over a broad range of operating conditions.  The stability of the combustion process in augmentors is a result of the interaction between the unsteady fluid mechanics around the flameholder, finite-rate chemistry, and the physics of fuel spray formation, transport, and evaporation.  In order to accurately model spray combust ...

  10. Multiphase Phenomena In Thermal Management Systems

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF083119

    The advancement of aeropropulsion technologies has placed increasing demand on the structural and thermal capabilities of high speed aeroengines. Though hydrocarbon fuels have been used as cooling media in jet aircraft engines for several years, advanced flight vehicles are reaching a practical heat transfer limit beyond which the sensible heat transfer provided by conventional fuels is no longer ...
