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. New algorithmic hardening schemes and multi-bit error detection/correction to enable the use of commercially derived memories in space

    SBC: TRANSEL CORP.            Topic: AF083192

    The proposed effort will demonstrate the suitability of a mature commercial production technology in meeting the requirements for a cost effective, high capacity non-volatile memory solution for space systems.  The feasibility of mitigating radiation sensitivities in, and improving the reliability of, devices built upon the selected technology will be demonstrated during Phase 1.  We will develo ...

  2. Biomolecular Taggants for Covert Tracking and Watermarking

    SBC: Icagen, Inc.            Topic: AF073035

    Functional taggants are paints or inks that change their optical properties in response to specified environmental conditions, such as the presence of a chemical related to illicit weapon activities. In this project, we will develop taggant systems for two non-conventional weapon signatures. Taggants will have high chemical selectivity (avoids false positives), high chemical affinity (avoids flase ...

  3. 3D Magnetic Field Modeling


    ABSTRACT: We propose to employ a novel Boundary Element Method (BEM) numerical technique, demonstrated during Phase I, to develop a parallel computer code that will allow simultaneous solution, in three dimensions (3-D), of the vacuum magnetic vector potential and magnetic field structure for complex geometries. The primary advantages of the chosen approach are the reduction of the dimensionality ...

  4. Distributed Conformal Actuation for Simultaneously Controlling Flow Separation and Transition

    SBC: ENVIRONMENTAL ROBOTS, INC.            Topic: AF08T007

    The objective of the proposed research is the demonstration of an optimized, planar-constrained Ionic Polymer-Metal Composite (IPMC) under the influence of a low, O(10V), voltage signal as a conformal surface capable of actuation of a laminar/transitional boundary layer for the goals of transition and/or separation control. The material will be modeled using standard techniques for analyzing a st ...

  5. Windscreen Shield Monitor Usng Spiral Transmission Lines

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: AF071313

    Many aircraft are hardened against the effects of various forms of high power electromagnetic waves, including Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP), High Power Microwaves (HPM), High Intensity Radio Frequency (HIRF), and lightning. These aircraft typically have electrically conducting coatings on their windows, with conducting gaskets that form an electromagnetic seal with the fuselage. These gaskets wear ...

    SBC: collins clark technologies inc.            Topic: AF08BT14

    In conventional microwave tubes, electrons are supplied by tunneling from specially prepared cathodes that are heated to high temperatures (>1000C),  Total current (and tube power) is limited by cathode temperature with higher power possible only with higher temperatures or more exotic cathode materials.  Operating at these temperatures results in reduced cathode lifetime and fragile tubes.  Si ...

  7. High Speed Survivable Small Penetration Fuze

    SBC: Dynamic Systems And Research Corporation            Topic: AF083092

    This program seeks to develop advanced, high-voltage components for the next generation of military fuzes.    Specifically, we propose to develop and test three different high-voltage switch modules that can be implemented into future in-line, high-voltage fuzing and firing set systems.  During the Phase I effort, DSR will research three different high-voltage switches for fuzing applications. ...

  8. Fiber Laser Beam Combining

    SBC: LIBRATION SYSTEMS MANAGEMENT, INC.            Topic: AF083004

    We propose a modular, extensible software package for modeling fiber laser arrays. This module will be developed using Mathwork''''s MATLAB and SIMULINK tools. This will ensure compatibility with a wide variety of computer systems. The software will be developed around a graphical user interface that will provide the user with a wide variety of options for modeling any type of fiber laser system. ...

  9. Replacement for Hexavalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Magnesium and Zinc-Nickel

    SBC: METALAST INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: AF083226

    The European Union''s RoHS and WEE Directives mandated the elimination of the carcinogenic, hexavalent chromium coatings for metals, including magnesium and zinc-nickel plated substrates.  The purpose of this project is to find chemistry that will meet requirements of industry performance specifications and of the mandate.  METALAST intends to explore trivalent chromium in conjunction with two o ...

  10. Hyperspectral Retinal Imaging for Assessment of Retinal Laser Damage

    SBC: Kestrel Corporation            Topic: AF083029

    Development of an optimized fundus imager to field use requires detailed knowledge of the spectral response of the eye damage lesion in order to design the optimal imager. That first step is satisfied by the development of a 1D hyperspectral fundus imager to enable the researcher to identify the features of interest and collect the spectra. In this Phase I effort, the design study will be conducte ...
