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. Closed-Loop Feedback Control for Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation

    SBC: Electro Standards Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: AF17BT002

    The increased use of sensing systems and large scale networked nodes with a variety of embedded sensors and imagery is creating a plethora of varied data that needs to be fused and interpreted for applications such as surveillance, reconnaissance, and air traffic controls. The need for persistent human analysis with high levels of proficiency is taxing human resources and cognitive abilities. In t ...

  2. Bayesian Inference of Spacecraft Geometry and Pose

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT007

    Space platforms are complex dynamical systems and there are many reasons to model them from ground telescope imagery as well as from space-based sensor platforms. One key motivation is to determine the operational state and configuration of the vehicle. Key questions such as did the solar panels fail to deploy, did the object begin to tumble unexpectedly may be addressed by a sufficiently detaile ...

  3. Automatic Dependent Surveillance- Broadcast (ADS-B) and UAS operations

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: AF171045

    A full-featured ADS-B unit for unmanned air vehicles is proposed. In addition to the ADS-B In/Out capability, several features which are customized for UAV operations are included. In Phase I, development of the features will be undertaken, along with pre

  4. Global Surveillance Augmentation Using Commercial Satellite Imaging Systems

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF153001

    ABSTRACT:A system is proposed to access, collate and process imagery from multiple small satellite constellations. The imagery is fused and registered to a common reference so that exploitation algorithms, such as change detection and event monitoring, are reported with accurate geographic coordinates. The system, called SatTel, is implemented as open source software that is designed to run on the ...

  5. Cognitive Computing Application for Defense Contracting

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: AF151194

    A cognitive computing natural-language question/answer system for defense contracting documents is proposed. The results of the Phase I effort are discussed. A detailed Phase II technical plan is presented. This includes refinements to the Phase I work, extended build-out and testing of the proposed system. Implementation plans are presented.

  6. SIGMA: Speedy Imagery Geo-registration and Motion Analysis

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF131151

    ABSTRACT: VSI proposes the development of the SIGMA (Speedy Imagery Geo-registration and Motion Analysis) system, which will address three key requirements by the end of Phase II: (i) adapt to different type of sensors, sensor-configurations and sensor operating conditions, (ii) handle large amount of data in real-time or close to real-time using limited resources, and (iii) operate under conditi ...

  7. Cognitive Computing Application for Defense Contracting

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: AF151194

    ABSTRACT:The need for a natural language query capability for DoD regulations is identified. A technical solution based on artificial intelligence, cognitive computing, and natural language query technology is presented. In Phase I, various techniques will be investigated, and one or more solutions will be developed and tested. In Phase II, the down-selected technologies will be refined and built- ...

  8. Safe, Large-Format Lithium Ion Batteries for Aircraft

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: AF141071

    YTP will develop technology that provides a high performance, modular Li-ion battery with: redundant safety features, safer thin, metal case cell designs; fin/micro-channel thermal control system; and an evaporating fluid system that rapidly quenches failing cells to prevent thermal runaway and fratricide. The end goal of the proposal is making a lighter, longer lasting, less expensive, safer JSF ...

  9. 3-D Smart Aircraft Conceptual Design Tool

    SBC: DESIGN, ANALYSIS AND RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF141083

    ABSTRACT: Design, Analysis and Research Corporation (DARcorporation) proposes to develop a 3-D visualization and modification environment as well as higher fidelity modeling capability based on defined geometry to be incorporated into the Advanced Aircraft Analysis (AAA) software. AAA is a conceptual aircraft design and analysis tool using semi-empirical and physics based methods. It is used fo ...

  10. Fuel-Air Explosive Technologies from Dual-Use Materials

    SBC: energetic materials research and engineering, llc            Topic: AF131104

    ABSTRACT: In our Phase I SBIR work to date, we constructed an implosion system using carefully-designed components and geometries that reproducibly reacts nearly 100% of the JP10 in the test cell. Using ALE3D we have also been able to qualitatively describe the major hydrodynamic processes involved in the collapse and subsequent expansion of the assembly. In Phase II we propose a continuation a ...
