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. Programmable Picosat Transceiver

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: AF112072

    ABSTRACT:The goal of the Space Test Program is to enable the US Air Force to rapidly develop emerging space technologies by providing economical flight opportunities to increase a technologys TRL. Over the past decade, the CubeSat form factor has emerged as an economical platform for testing technologies that can be packaged within the 10x10x30 cm form factor. However, the lack of a programmable S ...

  2. Vacuum Compatible High Gradient Insulators

    SBC: SIENNA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF151013

    ABSTRACT:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a vacuum compatible, high gradient insulator (HGI) based on low SEE yield aluminum nitride (AlN) ceramic with high surface flashover resistance for pulse power applications. In Phase I we will design and fabricate AlN-Metal HGIs, and investigate the effects of AlN and metal layer thicknesses, and number of layers on the ...

  3. Noncontacting Full-Field Real-Time Strain Measurement System for Air Platforms in Combined Extreme Environments

    SBC: Correlated Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF151069

    ABSTRACT:A cooperative small business and university research and development program is proposed to begin development of a robust, non-contacting, digital image correlation based, full-field strain measurement system for high temperature applications. The Phase I studies will demonstrate that a robust high temperature digital image correlation system (HTDICS) can be developed that is capable of a ...

  4. Automated Scaling Software for Oblique Incidence Ionograms

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF151098

    ABSTRACT:The objective of this solicitation is to develop real-time automatic scaling software for oblique ionograms (OIs). The NWRA team has developed an extensive HF propagation computational tool set, which includes a capability called APEx (Automated Point Extraction) for automatically finding vertical ionogram (VI) traces within an ionogram image. APEx does not require pre-separation of the O ...

  5. Influence of Long-range Ionospheric and Atmospheric Effects on Surveillance and Communication Systems

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF151154

    ABSTRACT:Abstract: Electromagnetic signals used in communications and sensor systems can be seriously impacted after propagation through a region of the atmosphere or ionosphere disturbed by turbulence. This work will develop new physics-based technology that calculates EM propagation from HF to laser frequencies, including the effects of turbulence with long correlation length in the direction of ...

  6. Optimized Additive Manufacturing for High Dielectric Strength

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: AF15AT07

    ABSTRACT: To produce high dielectric strength insulator materials, our approach, called Optimized Additive Manufacturing for High Dielectric Strength (OAHDS), will optimize fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printing in order to fabricate high density parts. Currently, thermoplastics 3D printed via FFF have dielectric strengths one to three orders of magnitude lower than injection molded parts ma ...

  7. Rapid Rewarming Reduction of Cryoprotectant Toxicity and Concentration Employing Magnetic Nanoparticles

    SBC: TISSUE TESTING TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: DHP15014

    We will evaluate a novel warming method, developed by our collaborator John Bischof, that promises solution of one of the remaining barriers for banking of large organs and vascularized composite tissues. The method involves radiofrequency and magnetic nanoparticles to obtain rapid uniform electromagnetic rewarming of biological materials instead of warming from the outer boundary using convection ...

  8. Avoiding the Ice Cryolesion in Tissue Cryopreservation with Ice Modulators

    SBC: TISSUE TESTING TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: DHP15013

    The long term goal of the proposed research is to develop improved methods for cryopreservation of complex tissues at extreme low temperature. An innovative approach is taken in the proposed line of research, where synthetic ice modulators (SIMs) are combined with established cryoprotective agent (CPA) cocktails to create more favorable conditions for cryopreservation in a process known as vitrifi ...

  9. Malicious Behavior Detection for High Risk Data Types (DetChambr)

    SBC: Leviathan Security Group, Inc.            Topic: AF151031

    ABSTRACT: Leviathan Security Group (LSG) has previously created a system called Major Myer, under the DARPA CINDER program, which is capable of detecting exploitation attempts in images of application memory using emulation. It has focused on crashdumps, but is theoretically not limited to this purpose. LSG has since commercialized the technology developed under that project into a product called ...
