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. Residual Stress Measurement and Forecasting System

    SBC: APES INC.            Topic: AF083228

    The proposed approach for Phase I of this effort brings together two key items that are needed to work in concert with one another: advanced fatigue assessment methods and non-destructive inspection & detection techniques. Successful synthesis of these elements and the engineering disciplines behind them will provide an optimized and advanced method of taking full advantage of engineered residual ...

  5. Verification of Cold Working and Interference Levels at Fastener Holes

    SBC: APES INC.            Topic: AF081088

    The USAF recognizes that benefits to cold working fastener holes include significantly increased life of a structure subjected to fatigue loading. However, full realization of this potential from a maintenance and engineering standpoint is hindered by the fact that there is currently no adequate field technique for determining how well the material structure immediately surrounding the hole has re ...

  6. Hyperspectral and Multi-Modal Retinal Imaging for Assessment of Retinal Laser Damage

    SBC: Lickenbrock Technologies LLC            Topic: AF083029

    The Phase I objective is a conceptual design of a hyperspectral/multimodal fundus camera for assessing laser damage.  The premise to be ultimately proven in this project is that damage to the fundus, from laser irradiation, may be characterized and detected by reflectance spectra, and by measuring function such as flow and perfusion.  The system will incorporate an existing fundus camera model ( ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Unmanned Aerial System with Modular Payload Bays and Payload Interfaces

    SBC: Brock Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF083006

    The Unmanned Systems market is exploding with applications, products and services. For example, an increasing number of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) are serving the military, commercial and research markets today. However, these systems are generally limited to supporting a single particular sensor, payload, or concept of operation assigned at the design stage of development. Expansion of their ...

  9. Deformable, Variable Radius of Curvature Mirror (VRM) for Wide-FOV Zoom SSA Sensors

    SBC: Composite Mirror Applications inc            Topic: AF083195

    We are proposing to develop a variable radius of curvature mirror (VRM) produced from carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) composite materials. This will support a compact, lightweight, robust imaging system for space platforms than can survey a wide area for situational awareness and optically (NOT electronically) magnify an area-of-interest almost instantly without macroscopic motion.  Conven ...

  10. Enhancing High-Resolution Imagery for Space Situational Awareness with Lucky Imaging and Adaptive Optics

    SBC: Hart Scientific Consulting International LLC            Topic: AF083199

    We propose the development and laboratory demonstration of a method that will revolutionize the high resolution satellite imaging capabilities of ground-based optical systems.  Current imaging systems supporting Space Situational Awareness (SSA), even those equipped with state-of-the-art adaptive optics (AO), fail to exploit the intrinsic field of view of the imager at the full resolution of the ...
