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. Active Laser Tracker for KKV

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    "Ballistic missile defense requires the ability to find, track and intercept a threat missile before it can reach its target. The kinetic kill vehicle (KKV) is a fundamental means to intercept and destroy the threat. To be successful, the KKV must be ableto acquire and track the target autonomously while steering itself on an intercept course. It must do this within a very small Circular Error ...

  3. An Integrated Portable High-Voltage Ultra-Wideband Transmitter

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "High-voltage Ultra-Wideband transmitters are a key component in a wide variety of systems involving directed energy weapons, UWB radar, and secure communications. These applications require a UWB transmitter that combines a portable high-gain antenna witha fast-risetime high-voltage triggered source that is battery powered. Until recently, both the antennas and sources were too large and heavy to ...

  4. High Efficiency Interferometric Spectral Imaging (BMDO/00-003E-IR)

    SBC: Kestrel Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Under this Phase I SBIR the Kestrel Corporation proposes to demonstrate a newtechnique that increases the throughput of a Fourier transform hyperspectralinterferometric imager by a factor of two while retaining the spectral and spatialresolution of the original instrument. The technique overcomes an existinglimitation in virtually all interferometric instruments by recoveringthe light lost throug ...

  8. Demonstration of an electrically-based oxygen singlet delta generator for iodine laser applications

    SBC: PLASMATRONICS            Topic: N/A

    "Plasmatronics has developed a unique oxygen singlet delta generator having the potential to replace the dangerous and bulky chemical "COIL" generator currently being used to power oxygen iodine lasers in military applications. Our process does not use anystored reactive chemicals - only oxygen plus inert gases, helium and argon. Oxygen activation is accomplished by a 50% efficient electrical proc ...

  9. Secure, high bandwidth telemetry

    SBC: RADIO DESIGN GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "MVSK provides the ability to realize enhanced data rates over a power-constrained channel at the same or greater distance as a lower-rate, narrowband link without the addition of extensive, signal processing or complex and expensive adaptive antennacapabilities. The benefits include practically jam-proof and interference-proof operation, resistance to many deleterious on-air propagation effects, ...

  10. Novel Materials & Processing Methods for Non-Eroding Nozzles

    SBC: Thor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Missile performance is currently limited by the available materials, particularly in the propulsion system. The development of non-eroding materials for rocket nozzles has the potential to increase missile performance and reduce motor component cost.Refractory metal ceramics are leading non-eroding material candidates for a wide range of propulsion systems. Unfortunately, these materials are in ...
