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. Solar Blind MgZnO Photodetectors

    SBC: AGNITRON TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: A13AT006

    This Phase I program is focused on enhancement of the performance of MgZnO based solar blind detectors. MgZnO alloys have superior optoelectronic properties with bandgaps suitable for solar blind detection. Issues related to doping and miscibility will be addressed. This will involve the use of advanced MOCVD and MBE growth techniques and consideration of both Schottky and p-n junction devices. No ...

  2. Lightweight Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Shielding System for Aircraft Avionics

    SBC: Minnesota Wire & Cable Co.            Topic: N112097

    The Department of Defense is continually looking for opportunities to reduce the weight of fixed-wing aviation assets. Reduced weight translates to a number of significant economic and operational benefits. One area of significant opportunity for increased weight savings is wiring, which is based on metal conductorstypically copperwhich is a heavy material. Furthermore, wiring and connectors are p ...

  3. Nanotechnology Approach for Transmission Loss-of-Lubrication Survivability

    SBC: Applied Colloids            Topic: A13022

    Applied Colloids proposes the utilization of its proprietary nanotechnology in order to insure continued operation of powertrain transmissions utilized in rotorcraft. This will entail the use of a nanoadditive to the transmissions of interest. These nanoadditives will coat the interacting gears with a low coefficient material that will insure operation beyond the 30 minute period specified by mili ...

  6. Satellite Avionics Fault Tolerant Hypervisor

    SBC: ADVENTIUM ENTERPRISES, LLC            Topic: SB131009

    Hypervisors could significantly increase mission utility and life of space platforms, while decreasing acquisition time and cost. Terrestrial hypervisor applications, including cloud computing and avionics for Unmanned Aerial Systems, enjoy the benefits of maintenance, short-duration missions, and vastly lower acquisition and replacement costs. As such, they have limited need and ability to dete ...

  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. STABILITY: Statistical Verification, Explanation Based Learning, and Interaction Testing for Complex Systems

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: OSD12ER1

    Complex systems are inherently difficult to analyze because they include multiple sub-systems that interact in stochastic and context-dependent ways. A particular challenge in designing such systems is to foresee the possible emergent interactions between the sub-systems. System repurposing makes the identification of interactions even more difficult, since the interactions vary along with the o ...
