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. Foam-based Vehicle Arresting System

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A08124

    The threat of explosive-laden vehicles driving in close proximity to military installations has been a major concern since the attacks on the USMC headquarters in Beirut in 1983. The large quantity of explosive a single truck can carry combined with the sheer power of a heavy vehicle driven at high speed makes it a dangerous weapon and a challenge to stop without massive barriers. The ideal vehi ...

  2. MEMS-Based Aero-optics Simulator System

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: AF06T030

    AgilOptics and the University of Notre Dame are collaborating to develop and commercialize an aero-optics disturbance simulator. Wavefront temporal data will be collected on various wind tunnel configurations that are applicable to transmitting light beams from aircraft. These time histories of the optical path distortions will be recorded and re-played through a membrane deformable mirror, driv ...

  4. Biomolecular Taggants for Covert Tracking and Watermarking

    SBC: Icagen, Inc.            Topic: AF073035

    Caldera will use its R&D 100 award-winning XRpro technologyto develop functional biomolecular taggants for Chemical/Biological/Radiological/Nuclear/Explosive (CBRNE) targets. These taggants will possess functionality which will allow networks of interpersonal connections and travel to be determined, and will allow CBRNE MASINT to be tracked at a distance. Main features of these synthetic protein ...

  5. 3D Magnetic Field Modeling


    We propose to employ a novel Boundary Element Method (BEM) numerical technique to develop a parallel computer code that will allow simultaneous solution, in three dimensions (3-D), of the vacuum magnetic vector potential and magnetic field structure for complex geometries. The primary advantages of the chosen approach are the reduction of the dimensionality of the problem from three (volume) to tw ...

  6. Embedded Windscreen Shielding Integrity Monitor

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: AF071313

    Many aircraft are hardened against the effects of various forms of various high power electromagnetic waves, including EMP, HPM, and HIRF. These aircraft typically have electrically conductive screens built into their windows, with an electrical connection to the metallic fuselage that forms an electromagnetic seal. To maintain the shielding effectiveness of the window, it is necessary to check pe ...

  7. Scalable Hyper-Thinning of Si for Three-Dimensional Space Electronics

    SBC: Gratings, Inc.            Topic: AF073099

    This phase I proposal addresses ultra-thinning (~ 5-10 micrometer) of Si wafers and memory dies through a mix and match approach in which advanced deep reactive ion etching (DRIE)and pulsed laser etching (PLE)methods are used for coarse and plasmaless XeF2 vapor etching for fine thinning. Die-thinning in sub 10-micrometer regime is a subject of enduring interest in ultra-dense 3D MCM packaging and ...

  8. Intracavity Beam Control in Laser Resonators

    SBC: Kestrel Corporation            Topic: AF073007

    Most directed energy weapons systems separate beam clean-up and atmospheric compensation into two (or more) separate adaptive optics (AO) systems. This approach arose for a variety of reasons. The aberration structure of the high energy laser (HEL) is significantly different than that of the atmosphere resulting in different requirements on the deformable mirror and the wavefront sensors. The l ...

  9. Wireless Fire Detector

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: AF073130

    MSI develops and commercializes intelligent instrumentation modules. Our product emphasis is on instruments mounted in aircraft wiring connector. Their purpose is to provide real time situation awareness for component and system health monitoring. This topic fits perfectly with our current projects that are developing “smart” instrument systems for component diagnostics and prognostics, aircra ...

  10. An Integrated Phenomenological and Physics-based framework for Multi-Sensor Vibration Analysis

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: AF073135

    Management Sciences has developed a layered algorithmic framework for high dimensional data analysis and fault detection focusing on multi-sensor vibration data. Processing modes include signal processing, factor analysis, source separation, feature extraction, classification, and Bayesian contextualization. These are applied dynamically to support online health monitoring and prognostic health ma ...
