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. High Quality Powder Towpregs and Tapes for Use with Automated Placement Processes

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF05141

    Manufacture of polymer matrix composite (PMC) jet engine parts is expensive due to the high cost of needed high temperature materials and fabrication processes currently in use. To reduce costs and improve quality, automated composite fabrication methods such as filament winding, automated tape placement, and fiber or tow placement coupled with non-autoclave processing offer great promise for use ...

  2. Laser discrimination of unresolved space and airborne targets based on the effects of surface correlations on the backscattered state of polarization

    SBC: ADVANCED OPTICAL TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: AF05002

    Changes in the state of polarization of scattered laser radiation can be utilized to discriminate among targets according to surface microstructures on the wavelength scale. Newly-developed rigorous electromagnetic coherence theory is applied to the inverse problem of laser discrimination of unresolved space and airborne targets based on the effects of surface correlations on the backscattered st ...

  6. Blast Resistant Armor Appliqués

    SBC: DOMINCA LLC            Topic: A05030

    Armors that provide protection against blast do so through a number of mechanisms. Simple elastic mechanisms include reflection of the blast wave because of the armor's high impedance relative to air, and distribution of energy over a large area by wave propagation through the armor. Non-linear effects, such as plasticity and damage evolution, enhance the armor's effectiveness by dissipating mec ...

  7. Dry Sterilization Procedures Based on Variable Frequency Microwave Technology

    SBC: FIORE INDUSTRIES INC.            Topic: A05T010

    Several of the present methods of decontamination of biothreat agents, especially the spore-forming Bacillus anthracis (anthrax) rely on steam or disinfection with highly corrosive agents. While these methods are effective, such procedures are impractical when the contaminated materials and/or equipment are mail, paper documents, delicate instruments, or complex machinery such as mail sorting equ ...

  8. Material Bonding For Lethal Air-to-Air Warheads

    SBC: HYTEC, INC.            Topic: AF05170

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate a well characterized, production-friendly, bonding technique with predictable and measurable bond quality for joining zirconium to tantalum for use in lethal air-to-air warheads. Lethal warheads or kinetic energy penetrators for land-based and air-based use have been successfully implemented in military applications for almost two decades and are ...
