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. Thermal Bus Technology for Next Generation Vehicles

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A03228

    A number of trends are coming together in the next generation combat systems and tactical vehicles, which will greatly increase the heat loads that must be managed within the vehicle while also increasing the number of heat sources and dispersing these sources over most of the vehicle volume. Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT), supported by Hamilton Sundstrand and Thermacore/Modine, will de ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. High-Resolution Wide-Dynamic-Range MEMS-Based Closed-Loop Adaptive Optics System

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: AF05003

    This work researchs the use of a novel, patented Moire fringe wavefront sensor for fast, high density wavefront correction in an adaptive optics system. Based around existing technology for lightweight, durable and inexpensive membrane deformable mirrors already under development at Intellite (in transition to AgilOptics in 2005), this innovative adaptive optical system with a fast optical comput ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Fabrication of 3D Photonic Crystals in the RF Range for Man-Portable Antenna Applications

    SBC: Antennovation            Topic: A05T017

    Antennovation and the Pennsylvania State University propose to develop novel new electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) materials in conjunction with miniaturized broadband antennas for use in man-portable antenna applications. The proposed antenna/EBG system will be designed to be low-profile, compact, and light-weight for helmet-mounted antennas and/or other body-worn applications. The frequency range o ...

  7. Material Surface Properties Modifications by Nonequilibrium Atmospheric Pressure Plasma Processing

    SBC: APJET INC            Topic: AF05T028

    The Atmospheric Pressure Plasma Jet (APPJr) technology invented at Los Alamos National Laboratory and exclusively licensed to APJeT, Inc., is a revolutionary platform technology enabling economic application of atmospheric pressure plasma technology in an array of applications. APPJr is a non-thermal, stable, uniform discharge having 50-1000 times greater power density than conventional atmospheri ...

  8. A Payload, Controller and Communications Toolkit for Small Unmanned Ground Vehicles

    SBC: APPLIED PERCEPTION, INC.            Topic: A05221

    The use of small unmanned ground vehicles in both military and civilian operations is rapidly growing. Unfortunately, vendors today only offer their own proprietary Operator Control Units and vehicle payloads that can only be used with their vehicle platform. The objective of this Phase I effort is to design a toolkit of common and interchangeable components for small unmanned ground vehicles to p ...

  9. Soldier Universal Robot Controller

    SBC: APPLIED PERCEPTION, INC.            Topic: A04038

    Current robotic controllers place a great deal of emphasis on graphical control methods. While graphics and visualization are an important and critical method for controlling robotic assets, they are not sufficient in all cases. The ideal robotic controller would enable the soldier to interact with the robot in the same manner as he interacts with other subordinates, with there being no distinctio ...

  10. Soldier Universal Robot Controller

    SBC: APPLIED PERCEPTION, INC.            Topic: A04038

    With the anticipated deployment of technologies developed under programs like Future Force Warrior and Future Combat Systems, there is a growing need for a common method for human-robot interaction. This is particularly true for dismounted infantry, since they are often in situations where small, lightweight, easy to use interfaces are a necessity rather than a luxury. There are a growing number o ...
