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. Innovative Surface Treatments for Solar Cells

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: AF073095

    Pursuits of highly efficient and reliable solar cells place high demands on the materials and processes used in their fabrication. For extraterrestrial cells, specific efficiency is of utmost importance, and thus the ability to reduce module weight without impacting efficiency is highly desirable. Flexible solar cells are a new direction in solar cell technology and robust substrates are required. ...

  2. Solid Propellant Shock to Detonation Modeling and Formulation

    SBC: BUCKMASTER RESEARCH            Topic: AF08T003

    Determining the hazard classification of new propellant formulations is important for transportation safety and storage concerns. To avoid costly grain redesign and additional testing, a model that adequately predicts the shock sensitivity, including the outcome of the Naval Ordnance Laboratory Large Scale Gap Test, of modern solid propellants is required. The goals of this proposal are to develop ...

  3. Closed-Loop Process Control for Electron Beam Direct Manufacturing

    SBC: SCIAKY, INC.            Topic: AF083069

    The electron beam free form fabrication process (EBFFF) holds great promise for industry as a disruptive technology based on additive manufacturing of near net shape, high value engineered materials. The development efforts are structured to review and compare multiple process feedback systems for identifying molten pool characteristics and perform a series of open loop process parameter tests to ...

  4. Electron-Beam Additive Manufacturing Process Control for Titanium Alloys

    SBC: SCIAKY, INC.            Topic: AF091C002

    Electron Beam Free Form Fabrication has the potential to produce large titanium structures directly from 3D models eliminating or reducing the long lead times associated with designing, procuring, and implementing conventional forging tooling as well as reducing the amount of machining cost by producing near net shapes. Our proposal outlines an approach to demonstrate the use of this technology su ...

  5. Ultra-Low Noise Amplifier for Enhanced Signal Intelligence (SIGINT) Detection

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF083154

    We propose a low noise amplifier for receiver front ends in wideband communication systems. The circuit will exploit wide band noise reduction techniques such as active noise cancellation. High frequency, wide bandwidth signals have several advantages ranging from high data rate communications to high resolution RADAR. However, the biggest challenge in realizing these systems is the limitations in ...

  6. Autonomous Vehicle Awareness Sensors

    SBC: Epsilon Lambda Electronics Corp.            Topic: AF083194

    This topic is designed by the Air Force to develop a self contained sensor system that autonomously detects and tracks objects in the vicinity of a host platform and prescribe collision avoidance maneuvers as appropriate.  In this proposal the platform will be a space platform, the sensor will be dual mode and the detection range will be short as a step toward longer detection range in the future ...

  7. Novel Alternative Energetic Propellants for Space Propulsion

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: AF08T010

    We propose a comprehensive computational and experimental program to investigate the characteristics and dynamic behavior of novel energetic propellants for space propulsion. Several classes of advanced propellants will be considered. These include “green” propellants (no chlorine) such as GAP/ADN with and without nanostructured fuel additives, nanoscale aluminum and ice propellant, and a nove ...

  8. Dynamic Behavior of Nano-sized Particles in Novel Energetic Materials for Space Propulsion

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: AF08T010

    We propose a comprehensive computational and experimental program to investigate the charac-teristics and dynamic behavior of nano-size aluminum in novel energetic materials. Two classes of advanced propellants will be considered. The first will be composite propellants, consisting of solids including AP, HMX, RDX, or nano-aluminum with a suitable binder such as HTPB. The second will be a nanoscal ...

  9. High Range, and Durable Thermocouples for Turbine Engines

    SBC: Industrial Measurement Systems Inc.            Topic: AF083260

    The harsh chemically reacting environments associated with turbine inlets offer significant measurement challenges.  Gas inlet temperatures of 2200oC and violent chemical reactions pose challenges in instrumentation development and application, which in turn can force design and maintenance compromises.  In this proposal we use ultrasonic thermometry to measure the turbine gas inlet temperature ...

  10. Technologies for Rapid Affordable Hypersonic Flight Testing

    SBC: Industrial Measurement Systems Inc.            Topic: AF083179

    Innovative measurement methods and instruments are needed to advance the state-of-art of hypersonic flight. Improved thermal transport measurement methods speed development, improve understanding, and enhance our ability to validate analytical models and hardware for numerous propulsion and aeroshell applications. Recent studies have shown that in many hypersonic applications ultrasonic-based te ...
