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. Aeroacoustic Analysis

    SBC: Cmsoft, Inc.            Topic: AF083267

    ABSTRACT:The reduction of aerodynamic/hydrodynamic noise caused by violent turbulence is of strategic importance to many military systems. These include modern fighter jets, unmanned weapons with sensitive electronics, and surface and underwater vessels. For all these systems, aerodynamic or hydrodynamic noise can produce unacceptable levels of operational loads or acoustic vibrations, or be detri ...

  2. Integrated Fast-light Micro-inertial Sensors for GPS Denied Navigation

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF131065

    ABSTRACT: The ability to maintain precision navigation without periodic position updates from external sensors such as GPS is challenging. One particularly challenging scenario is navigation for transonic through hypersonic weapon systems and UAVs. The flight dynamics and operational environment of medium / high altitude platforms limit the availability and precision of traditional non-GPS positi ...

  3. A Novel High-Conductance Thermal Interface for Aerospace Electronics

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF131077

    ABSTRACT: Current separable thermal mechanical interfaces (STMIs) found in advanced digital processing electronics are unable to efficiently remove dissipated heat from the active electronics, limiting electrical performance far below their capability. The standard approach produces high thermal resistance (~1.0°C-in./W) with local variations in excess of +/-25%, severely limiting allowable ele ...

  4. Thermal Enhancements for Separable Thermal Mechanical Interfaces

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF131077

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of the proposed SBIR program is to develop a thermally enhanced, separable thermal mechanical interface (STMI) that aims to significantly enhance heat transfer by providing a direct thermal path from the high power density components to the heat sink. In the current commercial off-the-shelf STMI multiple interfaces significantly increase the thermal resistance resulting in ...

  5. Easy-to-Employ Satellite and Space System Robustness

    SBC: PnP Innovations, Inc            Topic: AF131092

    ABSTRACT: Investing in innovation that moves toward the widespread use of satellite autonomy has the potential to yield significant benefits to the space situational awareness (SSA) community. Most notably, if satellite platforms have the ability to detect and respond to events without exchanging information over the space-to-ground link (which is subject to latency and availability limits), thei ...

  6. Model-Based Architecture for Responsive Spacecraft Autonomy

    SBC: Okean Solutions, Inc            Topic: AF131092

    ABSTRACT: This proposal addresses the need for solutions that enable higher levels of spacecraft autonomy to reliably maintain operational capabilities. Random hardware faults and hostile threats necessitate autonomous systems capable of responding quickly and effectively to these threats and unexpected events. The proposed research will develop an autonomy software architecture that enables evol ...

  7. LL-HAMMER: Long Lived Highly Autonomous Mission Manager for Event Response

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF131092

    ABSTRACT: Military missions increasingly rely on satellites for surveillance, communication, and navigation. While performing these mission-critical tasks, satellites must respond quickly to new enemy threats and changing mission objectives. Under prior AFRL SBIR awards, SIFT and TRACLabs have developed the Highly Autonomous Mission Manager for Event Response (HAMMER) to provide on-board auto ...

  8. Affordable Multi-Physics Local Environment (AMPLE) Space Situational Awareness

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF131095

    ABSTRACT: Barron Associates Inc. proposes development of an Affordable Multi-Physics Local Environment (AMPLE) Space Situational Awareness (SSA) system. The solution integrates multiple sensor phenomenologies, unconventional data sources, cross-platform information sharing, and sensor fusion to realize a low size, weight, and power (SWAP) platform that provides operational SSA for high value asse ...

  9. Vibration Measurement Methodology to Correct Aero-Optics Measurements

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: AF131180

    ABSTRACT: MetroLaser proposes a test and evaluation methodology to optimize the information return of aero-optic wind tunnel tests, which are corrupted by mechanical vibration. The aero-optic and vibration effects are added and to separate them it would be necessary to accurately measure the effect of vibration on the overall signal. The proposed technology includes measuring the vibration of ind ...

  10. Directed Energy Wind Tunnel Test Methodology

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: AF131180

    ABSTRACT: MZA partnered with the University of Notre Dame proposes to implement a series of mechanical and optical sensor measurements in a wind tunnel test section to isolate aero-optical disturbances from contaminating tunnel disturbances. We will develop a design for the necessary sensors and the number/location of these sensors on the tunnel observation windows. Particular attention will be ...
