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. Chip-to-Chip Optical Interconnects Using Integrated Photonic Crystal Lightwave Circuits

    SBC: OPTICOMP CORP.            Topic: AF03T021

    The goal of this Phase II STTR program is to develop photonic crystal (PC) technologies which can enable photonic lightwave circuits (PLC¡¦s) that are monolithically integrable with optoelectronic devices and wafers, thereby providing a new technology platform for the heterogeneous integration of photonic and optoelectronic functions. This can significantly increase the density of lightwave circ ...

  8. Powered Ascender for Pilot Extraction

    SBC: QUOIN INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: AF04128

    The Air Force has identified a need for a system that provides improved firefighter and rescue personnel access to cockpits and speeds pilot extraction under ground emergency conditions. Emergency personnel must be able to open the canopy, accomplish engine shutdown, make the ejection system safe, and extract the pilot during ground emergencies. The proximity of engine inlets to the cockpit and th ...
