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. Sensor Durability Validation for Turbine Engine Blade Health Measurement


    ABSTRACT: Many turbomachinery applications have achieved improved availability, reliability and cost savings by incorporating health monitoring systems to determine the mechanical condition of key components in near real time. The goals of any health monitoring system are to ensure reliability by avoiding unplanned maintenance, to reduce operating costs by providing the information needed to plan ...

  2. High-Efficient Liquid Desiccant and Chloride Removal for Corrosion Mitigation and Control

    SBC: AIL Research, Inc            Topic: AF131203

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force spends $4.5 billion annually on aircraft maintenance related to corrosion.The source of this corrosion frequently is airborne chlorides that settle on metal parts and sensitive avionics and then absorb moisture from the air to create an electrolyte that promotes galvanic corrosion.The proposed work will design, fabricate and test a Corrosion Mitigation System (CMS) that sup ...

  7. L Band Analog to Digital and Digital to Analog Converter

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF161082

    ABSTRACT: Next generation satellite communication systems must be robust to hostile jammers which degrade link budget and desensitize reception. A proposed solution is to use frequency hopping techniques to communicate in a spectrum space free of hostile jammers and an all digital radio in which the agility and robustness is provided by the data-converters. To this end, broadband high dynamic rang ...

  8. High Data Rate/Low SWaP-C GPS Crosslinks

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF161090

    ABSTRACT: The topic requests proposals to develop scalable, flexible lower SWaP-C GPS crosslink capability that allows future operational systems to forego significant dependence upon ground clock and ephemeris refresh with concurrent support of real-time command and control and age of data. The development of this capability will improve the reliability and robustness of future GPS satellites by ...

  9. Resilient Structural Sensing Technologies for Responsive Anomaly Resolution

    SBC: Fontus Applied Technologies            Topic: AF161095

    ABSTRACT: In sensor applications, it is important to monitor smart structures such as buildings, roads, bridges, tunnels, and subways. In this program, Fontus Applied Technologies proposes to develop a health monitoring sensor. Our novel system design minimizes the components needed in the system, thus the system cost, and also alleviates the speed requirement on the demodulating devices. Our prop ...
