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 ...

  3. Distributed System for Field Detection of Stray Energy from Laser Weapons

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF05313

    A number of high-energy laser weapons currently under development by and for the U.S. military will provide our armed forces with capabilities that are unmatched by conventional armaments. Laser weapons allow targets to be destroyed from remote locations without the delays associated with the transit of typical missiles and artillery shells. However, during engagement the laser radiation reflect ...

  4. Propulsion System Performance and Health Monitor

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF05192

    The innovation proposed is a flight-worthy optical sensor that will monitor propulsion system performance and health characteristics, including identifying the onset of combustion instability, in air-breathing engines such as turbojets and ramjets. It is an innovation for three reasons: 1) the sensing is performed in the hot exhaust flow at the back of the engine instead of at the flame-front in t ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. Low Cost Electro-Optic Sensors for Mini/Micro UAV’s

    SBC: AKAMAI PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: AF04229

    Imaging laser radar is evolving into an important tactical sensor, which may be fielded on UAVs. However, UAV systems range in size from micro systems, which have payload requirements of a few ounces to the mini UAVs with payload requirements of tens of pounds. This provides the designer of UAV based laser radars with considerable problems in selecting laser sources to fit in these vehicles. Th ...

  9. High Repetition Rate Pulsed Power Generators

    SBC: ASR Corporation            Topic: AF04009

    The development of a high pulse repetition rate (PRR) Marx generator, and the coupling of the Marx generator to the appropriate antenna system, will enable the development of a new series of radiation sources that not only have a high peak power output, but can be operated at high PRR. Such a pulsed power source will address the limitations of many current sources and provide a solution for many ...
