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. Ultra-High Precision Laser Isotope Monitor for 13CO2, CO180 and CO170

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 83

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the atmosphere are primary drivers of global climate change and hence there is a crucial need to quantify their sources and sinks. A general technique to constrain source and sink strengths is the analysis of the relative proportions of isotopic variants of GHG's. These measurements must be performed with extremely high precision. The gold standard technique, i ...

  2. Multipurpose Atmospheric/Underwater Expendable Dropsonde

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: 84

    There are currently no inexpensive observing systems that detect temperature, salinity and currents under the ocean's surface - all important factors in predicting the intensity of hurricanes. Boston Engineering proposes to develop the Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsondes (MASED). Our design builds on the highly successful air dropsondes already in use, combined with a ...

  3. Surveying Earth's Gravity with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 91

    During the Phase I program, Aurora conducted a comprehensive survey of potential platforms that included government owned and furnished UAVs and manned aircraft as well as Aurora’s Centaur Optionally Piloted Aircraft (OPA). The survey concluded, in part, that UAVs offer a significant improvement in data collection capability when compared to manned aircraft that are currently fielded by NOAA. ...

  4. Low Cost Production of Carbon Monofluoride (CFx) for Lithium Batteries

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: DLA122002

    Li/CFx primary batteries are considered to be a superior choice for military applications that require long life, light weight and very low self-discharge. The high cost of current carbon monofluoride materials, however, adds significantly to the total cost of the battery. Reactive Innovations, LLC (RIL) proposes to develop a method to produce CFx materials with over a 50% cost saving. The process ...

  5. An Integrated Li-ion Battery Manufacturing Process for Improved Safety and Decreased Battery Cost

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: DLA122002

    Commercial separators for Li-ion battery applications consist of microporous membranes that prevent contact between electrodes and enable free ion flow in the cell. Major drawbacks of these separators include their complex manufacturing process which adds cost to the battery and insufficient protection against thermal runaway reactions at elevated temperatures. This project addresses these limitat ...

  6. Development of Advanced Battery Manufacturing Techniques

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: DLA142001

    Physical Sciences Inc. together with EaglePicher Technologies will demonstrate that PSIs proprietary coating techniques can be employed to reduce the cost of producing lithium ion cells while improving the energy density and safety. Testing will clearly demonstrate the ability to increase the active material content and electrode density, provide in-situ short circuit protection, and reduce both ...

  7. Logistically Robust, Long Life, High Power Rechargeable Battery

    SBC: CAMX Power LLC            Topic: DLA142001

    CAMX Power proposes to develop a high power, long life lithium-ion (Li-ion) vehicle battery that can be completely de-energized for logistical transportation and storage purposes, giving it exceptional shelf life and making it intrinsically safe under conditions of relaxed environmental controls and with no or minimal state-of-health monitoring. This novel battery, based on CAMX Powers proprietar ...

  8. Reduced Manufacturing Cost for Li-ion Batteries

    SBC: CAMX Power LLC            Topic: DLA142001

    Lithium-ion batteries are being increasingly deployed in DoD applications as the result of their very high energy and power densities, but their manufacturing costs are high because of relatively long production timescales, The primary factor limiting throughput in Li-ion cell production is the long time required for the formation and aging sequence in which cells are cycled to render the cell op ...

  9. STRETCH ROLL FORMING

    SBC: Fairmount Technologies LLC            Topic: DLA09001

    Manufacture and maintenance of aircraft, ships, light rail cars, etc., requires many structural components formed out of extrusions. Processes such as stretch forming are typically used to produce these parts, in which unique dies are required for each forming operation. This increases the cost and lead time of production. The need for dies prevents the production of spares at the maintenance s ...
