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. Acoustic Test Method for Turbofan Engine Exhaust Systems at Cruise Conditions

    SBC: Aero Systems Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The exhaust flow from a turbofan engine operating at typical cruise conditions generates noise as turbulent flow interacts with the basic shock cell pattern. This can be a significant source of noise within the aircraft cabin. The proposed innovation is a new method for testing the acoustics of model scale turbofan engine exhaust systems at cruise conditions in a transonic wind tunnel. This would ...

  2. Novel Polyethers Doped with Nanoscale Insulating Oxides for Lithium Battery...

    SBC: H.V. Setty Enterprises, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Novel polyethers doped with insulating oxides are used to prepare solid polymer electrolytes for high energy density lithium batteries. The electrolytes are characterized for conductivity and electrochemical stability. Prototype lithium-polymer cells with high voltage cathodes will be fabricated and feasibility demonstrated for rate capability and cyclability.

  3. Miniature Intelligent Sensor Electronics


    The proposed system uses a combined hard-core processor/programmable-logic chip to implement the front-end control and processing functions of an intelligent sensor system. Combining these functions in a single chip is an innovation, relative to a traditional processor-only based system, because it provides re-configurable control of the sensor interface, i.e. analog and digital I/O and signal con ...

  4. High-Frequency, Low-Noise Nitride-Based Power Transistors Grown on Bulk III-N


    One of the main issues for III-nitride growth is the lack of a suitable native substrate. Growth on foreign substrates such as sapphire or SiC results in nitride material with a high density of defects due to large mismatches in lattice constant and thermal expansion. Nonetheless, nitride devices grown on these substrates have demonstrated optical and electronic properties that are practically unm ...

  5. Virtual Network Monitor (VNM)


    Next-generation tactical radio networks will likely provide high-bandwidth, jam-resistant physical layers on top of which the Internet Protocol (IP) is run. However, one cannot deny the fact that legacy data links such as Link-16 will remain in theinventory for some time. Weapons systems such as Patriot, THAAD, E-3, etc., all rely on Link-16 to provide common operational pictures of theater air ...

  10. Hybrid Electric Vehicle Storage Battery Based on Nanophase V2O5 Xerogel

    SBC: AVEKA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Hybrid electric vehicles, in contrast to electric vehicles, require a storage battery that is capable of fast charge/discharge rates in addition to a high storage capacity. AVEKA, Inc. has formulated an amorphous form of vanadium pentoxide that surpassesthe performance of its crystalline form at the high charge/discharge rates. The capacity and rate capability of this material also have not yet ...
