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. An All-Fiber Mid-Infrared Frequency Combs

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF08BT16

    A low-cost fiber-based octave-spanning frequency comb system operating in the mid-IR region is proposed, which is based on femtosecond-Tm-fiber-laser-pumped supercontinuum generation in a mid-IR-transmitting dispersion-engineered fiber. An all-fiber femtosecond mode-locked Tm-doped fiber laser at 2 micron will be used as a seed source for mid-IR supercontinuum generation. A femtosecond soliton fib ...

  2. Low Cost Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: AF083006

    An approach to make a long endurance UAV with an 18 hour endurance and large payload will be developed based on an existing, fielded capability present operationally deployed.  The system will be built from COTS equipment minimizing cost and allowing for rapid maintenance and upgrading of the system as technology develops.  The system will be fully autonomous through launch, mission flight and r ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Short-Wavelength Countermeasure for Circadian Desynchrony

    SBC: AVAcore Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF07T015

    Exposure to light at critical phases of the circadian cycle is the main stimulus that entrains circadian rhythms.  Previous work has concluded that exposure of humans to bright light for an hour or more at the right phase of the circadian cycle produces significant phase shifts of circadian rhythms speeding recovery from jet-lag, and optimizing cognitive functionality and restorative sleep.  Our ...

  5. Modeling & Simulation for Optimization of Heavy-Fuel Micro Rotary Engines

    SBC: BAKER ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This Phase II SBIR will develop and test a direct injected, heavy-fueled rotary engine based upon upgrading the existing engine (the AR74-1380) and utilizing analysis tools developed during Phase I. The program will provide the opportunity to continue research through modeling and simulation for optimization of heavy fuel micro rotary engines, and testing to provide model verification, all in sup ...

  6. Directed Energy Detection and Characterization Instrumentation

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: AF083253

    The increasing power, energy, and maturity of DE weapons systems has created an acute need for better measurement capabilities.  Systems designed to melt or disrupt electronics cannot be measured by many conventional methods, as they will destroy the diagnostic equipment along with their target.  To this end, Cybernet proposes the development of disposable HEL and HPM sensors which can provide a ...

  7. Autonomic Knowledge Representation Construction for Software Protection Systems

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: OSD09IA4

    Leveraging our current thrust of research into novel modes of computer, this project will focus on characterizing the state of the system using low-level descriptors abstracted with machine learning and processed to identify normal operation from varying levels of suspicious behavior. With this, we will be able to thwart novel attacks, providing a needed and novel security capability.

  8. Failure Initiation Predictors for Reliability-Based Design of Hybrid Composite Materials

    SBC: Comet Technology Corporation            Topic: AF08T025

    This proposal is concerned with the development of a novel failure initiation and progressive failure analysis (PFA) modeling method for advanced composite structures. The laminate is modeled as a collection of degrading lamina within the framework of lamination theory and executed using user defined subroutines through a commercial finite element software package. In the proposed approach, design ...

  9. A Computational Tool for Modeling Geometric Proximity of Independent Systems

    SBC: D&P LLC            Topic: AF083268

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop an accurate viscous CFD algorithm which can include various small gaps between both static and moving components into the analysis. It is not an easy task to model those small gaps in the current CFD codes due to the geometric proximity, especially for moving components. However, those small gaps may have a significant impact on the aerodynamic, aeroel ...

  10. NanoFET- Nanoparticle Field Extraction Thruster for Micro-Satellites and Defensive Counterspace

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF07T036

    The Nanoparticle Field Extraction Thruster (NanoFET) is being developed as a high thrust-to-power, highly compact, variable specific impulse electric propulsion device especially for micro-satellite applications. NanoFET provides thrust by extracting and charging nanometer to micron-sized conducting particles (e.g., spheres) fed from a dry reservoir and accelerating them electrostatically. This te ...
