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. Metallic Glass

    SBC: TXL GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF173014

    Amorphous metals have an advantage over the crystalline form in that they have high hardness and high elastic energy, however, the need to reduce crystallization speed has constrained both the material choices and the application space.This Phase 1 project will carry out a survey of the state-of-the-art in metallic glasses, driven primarily by interviews with contemporary researchers in the field. ...

  2. Ultralightweight Airframe Concepts for Air-launched Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

    SBC: Judd Systems Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF151072

    The main goal of the ALERT Phase II program is the preliminary design of a robust air vehicle that can meet all the performance goals while using a structural design with a high content of dielectric skins. This includes determining the flight envelope required to complete the desired customer missions, and then sizing the flight surfaces and propulsion system for optimum performance. Since the AL ...

  5. Modern Manufacturing for Liquid Rocket Engine Components

    SBC: ADVANCED POWDER SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: AF18AT009

    Liquid Rocket Engine (LRE) component manufacturing process by conventional processes are comprised of multi steps, components are fabricated by conventional machining from a forged or rolled billet/sheet. As a result a long lead time is needed and part acquisition time is high. So a low cost fabrication process is needed to replace current traditional processes. Low cost, rapid fabrication of this ...

  6. Anti- Reflective Surface Structures forInfrared Nonlinear Materials

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: AF18AT016

    High-power, high-efficiency, broadly-tunable coherent sources in the mid-wave infrared (MWIR, =35 m) spectral band are coveted for applications relating to infrared (IR) countermeasures, remote chemical sensing, and free-space optical communication. MWIR sources based on optical nonlinear frequency conversion can generate broadly-tunable kilowatt-level coherent radiation over the entire MWIR spect ...

  7. Biomimetic Design of Morphing Micro Air Vehicles

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT01

    Over the past two decades significant progress has been made on the development of mission capable micro air vehicles (MAV) and small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) but the full potential of implementing multifunctional morphing wings using active materials has not been realized.A need exists to develop a MAV wing that can autonomously adapt to flight conditions allowing the vehicle to aggressiv ...

  9. QwikMask- Automated UV-Curable Mask Application System

    SBC: SYSTEMS & MATERIALS RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF172003

    During the refurbishment of turbine engine parts, various coatings are applied to well-defined areas to meet specification. Uncoated surfaces are protected by a mask during the coating process. Masking materials typically include wax, tape, plastics, lacquers, or a variety of permanent masks. The time required to adequately mask a part using any of these methods is excessive, and creates a bottlen ...

  10. MWIR InAsSb APD Receiver

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: AF172011

    Current state-of-the-art avalanche photodiode (APD) material in mid- and long-wave infrared is HgCdTe. Because impact ionization coefficient for electrons, gamma is larger than that for holes, which enables low noise multiplication in APDs. However, significant drawbacks to HgCdTe materials such as fragility, difficulty in single-crystal growth have triggered the search for III-V/IV hybrid alterna ...
