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. Autonomous Situational Awareness for Munitions

    SBC: Technology Service Corporation            Topic: AF121106

    ABSTRACT:The Munitions Environment Signature Model being developed by TSC will provide munitions design engineers with a tool for exploring RF fuze sensor alternatives by modeling the dynamic multistatic coherent RF signatures of targets illuminated by munition fuze sensors at sub-millimeter wavelengths. Output generated by the MESM will be suitable for use with radar imaging techniques including ...

  2. Dimensional Evaluation of Aircraft Fuel Cells

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF141209

    ABSTRACT: Aircraft fuel cells are flexible rubber-coated fabric enclosures for the containment of fuel within aircraft cavities. The overall envelope dimensions and locations of interface fittings and attachment elements such as lacing ferrules and hanger baskets are critical to the proper function and durability of the fuel cells. The existing method of dimensional inspection is to install the f ...

  3. Just In Time (JIT) Aircraft Maintenance System

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: AF121225

    ABSTRACT:The High Velocity Maintenance (HVM) initiative strives to reduce aircraft downtime while maintaining the most capable air fleet that achieves Air Force mission requirements.Unscheduled maintenance, due to issues uncovered midway into the maintenance work, introduces the most delays that negatively impact HVM turnaround time.To increase the predictability of the actual maintenance required ...

  4. Affordable Sub-array for TT&C Phased Array Antennas

    SBC: ALPHA OMEGA ELECTROMAGNETICS, LLC            Topic: AF131147

    ABSTRACT: This Phase II SBIR research addresses an important and timely technological need, specifically the practical development and demonstration of a very low-cost, multi-frequency, multi-beam phased array subarray technology. This low-cost subarray technology is the fundamental building block required for the practical realization of a large hemispherical phased array useful for horizon-to- ...

  5. Improved Reaction Models for Petroleum and Alternative JP-5/8 Fuels

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF131161

    ABSTRACT: In recent years, diversification of energy dependence on foreign oil has attracted the use of alternative fuels such as the Fischer-Tropsch jet fuels and hydro-treated renewable jet fuels. However, there are combustion stability issues with alternative fuels in the aircraft engines including augmentors. In addition, the U.S. military has been using JP-8 as the single battle field fuel ...

  6. A Universal Device for Performing Cricothyrotomies

    SBC: INNOVITAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: DHP13015

    Many emergency cricothyrotomy kits have been developed in an attempt to simplify this potentially life-saving medical procedure. However, none of the existing kits perform noticeably better than the standard surgical kit. The standard kit itself has led

  7. Simultaneous RF Beamforming Phased Array Sensors through Wafer Scale Photonic Integration

    SBC: Morton Photonics Incorporated            Topic: AF141184

    ABSTRACT:This SBIR program will take maximum advantage of CMOS foundry based silicon photonics integration and Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) technologies developed for the telecom industry, to create wafer scale photonic integrated circuit (PIC) devices directly integrated with advanced Receive Phased Array Antennas, providing broad instantaneous bandwidth, multichannel simultaneous beamf ...

  8. Evaluation of SANDGT Using SOA Framework for Persistent and Risk-Averse Space Situation Awareness

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF12BT09

    ABSTRACT: Space superiority needs protected tactical space communications with dynamic spectrum sharing, routing adaptation and interference mitigations against kinetic and non kinetic threats. The main focus of this project is to develop game-theoretic analytics and frameworks to support the Air Forces autonomy science & technology strategy (e.g., "deterrence" posture which in turn may be enabled ...

  9. Evaluation of High Performance Computing Enabled Multiple-Target Tracking Based on Massive Parallelism for Urban Surveillance Areas

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF13AT10

    ABSTRACT: Threat detection of people, vehicles, and others as well as person-vehicle interactions (dismounts) of possible malicious intent are difficult problems due to the complexity of the problem space. The wide area motion imagery (WAMI) systems aid analysts to track and identify dismounts, but typically produce an overwhelmingly large amount of information. The large scale data input challeng ...

  10. Full-Scale Near-Field Acoustic Holography for Reduction of Annoyance and Disturbance

    SBC: SOUND ANSWERS, INC.            Topic: AF151021

    ABSTRACT:Noise levels of military jet aircraft have significantly increased as the power of the engines has increased creating a community noise issue around military airfields. Current noise monitoring requirements only measure sound pressure levels which do not correlate to human annoyance / disturbance. Sound Answers plans to apply their extensive Sound Quality background to establish new acous ...
