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. Small Unpiloted Aircraft System (SUAS) Auto-tracking of Moving and Stationary Targets

    SBC: SOLUTION ENGINEERING            Topic: AF083129

    Solution Engineering, Inc. (SEI) proposes to develop and demonstrate a prototype real time tracking system that supports robust multiple target tracking in an urban environment.  The approach will focus on increasing the robustness of the core feature tracking algorithms, utilizing target invariant characteristics to extend the ability to track, coast, and reacquire targets.  In addition higher ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Active Defense Against Code Injection Attacks

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: OSD09IA1

    The threat posed by remote cyber attacks has grown every year, with nation state attacks being the hardest to detect and blunt. A common cyber attack method against remote systems is the code injection attack, where the attacker finds flaws in a remote application then forces the application to execute injected code. Code injection attacks can give the attacker unlimited access to the attacked sys ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
