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. Reconfigurable Subaperturing for Endo-clutter Processing

    SBC: C & P Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF073079

    The objective of the current Phase II proposal is to develop methods for generating dynamically reconfigurable subaperture architectures for enhanced clutter/interference suppression and performing multiple tasks using distributed multi-sensor (MIMO) technology.  For the purpose of clutter nulling, transmitter adaptivity using smart subarray beamforming, together with adaptive interference  null ...

  8. Using Next Generation Processors

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF073018

    Next generation processors attain better performance than existing microprocessors because the abstraction layers better expose the underlying VLSI resources (transistors, wires, pins, ...) and constraints (e.g., wire delay, power, ...). However, the management of these resources and constraints requires the development of more sophisticated hardware and software mechanisms, both to improve effici ...

  9. Portable Missile Miss-Distance Identification System (PMMDIS)


    A Portable Missile Miss-Distance Identification System (PMMDIS) is needed to efficiently and precisely quantify the miss-distance of Man-Portable Air Defense System (MANPADS) missiles fired at fixed targets. Current techniques for determining missile miss-distances such as radar-based systems are only accurate to within several feet, at best, and they are also expensive and time-consuming to setup ...

  10. Active Vibration and Physics-Based Health Management


    Mechanical Solutions, Incorporated’s (MSI’s) Phase II effort will develop a health monitoring system for compressor trains and other plant equipment. This system will be primarily based on vibrations as gathered from accelerometers and eddy current sensor probes, but may also monitor other types of data such as temperatures, pressures, and acoustic signatures. In addition, MSI will evaluate t ...
