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. Handheld Real Time (RT) Climatic/Environmental Sensor

    SBC: VIRTUAL TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: AF073110

    This proposal will provide immediate decision support data, enabling appropriate and cost effective responses (shut down vs. continue) for training exercises/facilities. Specifically, the DoD requires the ability to “train as we fight and fight as we train”, however training is severely limited by visible emissions compliance in the current regulatory environment. Regulated facilities will hav ...

  2. The Low Cost Production of Titanium Alloy Powder Directly from Ore

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: AF081035

    Because of a unique combination of properties, titanium alloys play a key role in DoD systems.  One of the key issues that is preventing more widespread use of Ti-alloys is the cost and cycle time of the Kroll process followed by multiple steps to convert to powders or products.  A viable approach of combined electrochemical and chemical processing has demonstrated in a Phase I program that low ...

  3. Live, Virtual, and Constructive (LVC) Common Performance Measurement Development, Tracking, and Warehousing System

    SBC: Lumir Research Institute, Inc.            Topic: AF081014

    The capability to routinely collect and track human performance data across a variety of training, rehearsal, exercise, and test and evaluation environments is a paramount need for the Air Force.  Lumir Research Institute proposes to build the Common Data Acquisition system (CoDA), a software suite that will provide access to performance data from various simulation environments regardless of the ...

  4. High-speed, low voltage, miniature electro-optic modulators based on hybrid photonic-crystal/polymer/sol-gel technology

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: AF07T007

    The primary objective of the proposed research program is to realize a miniature, high-speed, low voltage hybrid photonic crystal waveguide modulator based on state-of-the-art electro-optic polymers with electro-optic coefficients on the order of 200pm/V as well as innovative poling, leading edge silicon photonics and EO polymer infiltration techniques.  Phase I work has demonstrated the viabilit ...

  5. Autonomic Knowledge Representation Construction for Software Protection Systems

    SBC: AVIRTEK, INC.            Topic: OSD09IA4

    The increased complexity, scale and capabilities of current software elements make current security tools and technologies incapable to protect software against attacks. It also makes it very hard to proactively detect their vulnerabilities that might be exploited by attackers. Our focus will be to investigate and study the construction of a near human knowledge representation of the state of a sy ...

  6. Cyber Superiority for Air Force Combatant Commanders

    SBC: AVIRTEK, INC.            Topic: AF08BT06

    Cyber-attacks targeting our info-structure are being launched continuously from hostile locations. It is becoming apparent that securing US info-structure and preventing cyber-attacks cannot be met with existing techniques. By continuously monitoring and analyzing cyber-space applications, services, and resources and through the use of autonomic agents, AppFlows, data mining, and multi-level cyber ...

  7. Rate-Adaptive High-Availability RF Links

    SBC: LEAF NETWORKS, LLC            Topic: AF083043

    In an airborne network there may only be a limited window of opportunity for a fighter jet or even a soldier on the ground to participate in a communication network.   Any loss of connection during this limited transmission window due channel fluxuations is therefore extremely costly.  In this project we propose a multi-resolution system base on superposition coding that will avoid these commun ...

  8. Advanced Combustion Stability Analysis Tools for Ox-rich Preburners

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF083112

    The goal of this SBIR is the enhancement of the current state-of-the-art combustion instability analysis tools.  The planned enhancement is focused on capturing the effects of injection element distribution and the inclusion of substantial film cooling and diluent injection.  These characteristics are extremely important in the design of high-pressure oxygen rich staged combustion (ORSC) engines ...

  9. Reliable and Rad-Hard Microelectronics

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF083197

    The ability to measure and characterize critical circuit parameters is a necessary requirement to developing reliable microelectronics for military applications. An industry-first capability is provided: a set of radiation-hardened by design (RHBD) test structures to allow design engineers to measure and characterize these critical parameters both before and after irradiation. Upon completion, the ...

  10. Deep Submicron Radiation Hardened Logic for Communications

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF083204

    Ridgetop Group, Inc. is proposing a Phase I Feasibility and Merit study as follows: 1. Conduct a Feasibility study on whether Heterojunction BiPolar Junction Transistor-based (HBT-based) structures can be designed for use as follows: (1) HBT-based Die Level Process Monitor (DLPM) structure to characterize the effect of process variations on base-emitter voltage (VBE); (2) HBT-based Radiation Effec ...
