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. Development of Endurable Thermal Barrier Coatings for Diesel Engine Specific Heat Reduction

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: A04250

    The future generation of both military and commercial diesel engines will operate at significantly higher temperatures and pressures than today's engines. The future combat system diesel engine operating parameters demand significant design improvement of in cylinder insulation. Increased cylinder pressure and reduced cooling requirements, heat energy recovery in the exhaust gas by turbo chargin ...

  3. Compact Turbochargers for High Power Density Diesel Engines

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: A05237

    A high-power density, low specific heat rejection diesel engine design for traditional and hybrid future combat system (FCS) vehicle configurations is being proposed. The total propulsion system of the vehicle hybrid configuration will fit the future vehicle assigned space/volume by TACOM's vehicle concept laboratory. The proposed engine will have a high-pressure common rail fuel injection syste ...

  4. 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 ...
