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. 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 ...

  2. Optical Switching Fabric

    SBC: OPTICOMP CORP.            Topic: AF083209

    The major requirements for this program include the modeling of optical switching fabric technologies appropriate to space-borne systems at very high speed. Specifically, this program will evaluate two OptiComp candidate optical transceiver technologies against a Serial Rapid IO switching fabric. A down-selection to one optical transceiver technology will be made. Then, a simulation of that Serial ...

  3. Terabit Per Second Optical Router for Space-Based Satellite Network

    SBC: OPTICOMP CORP.            Topic: AF083191

    The major requirements for this program include the modeling of optical routing technologies appropriate to space-borne systems at very high speed. This program will investigate optical routing at speeds to from 3.125 ro 10 Gbps per channel, with a wavelength/channel density from 4 to 16 wavelengths. Models will be constructed for these regimes, and an experimental demonstration of an 8-wavelength ...

  6. Advanced Materials and Cooling Schemes for Rocket Engine Combustion Chambers

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We will produce and test a flight-type transpiration cooled combustion chamber for high performance, reusable, liquid rocket engines utilizing a novel uniform pore material. The Sierra Engineering design produces a durable, low cost, flight-weighttranspiration cooled liner with integral fluid distribution and structural support hardware. The design will be based upon the rigorous analysis proced ...
