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. Variable Thrust/Specific Impulse Electrospray Propulsion

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: AF08BT09

    Yale University and Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) propose to develop a single propellant electrospray micro-thruster for space propulsion with a wide specific impulse range, from 500s at the low end to >2500s, with the goal of 10,000s, while maximizing the performance. Three key prior accomplishments have motivated the formation of this team: Yale, working with ARL has demonstrated M ...

  4. Aircraft Corrosion Inspection

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF083245

    Acellent Technologies, Inc. (Acellent) proposes to develop a reliable Cascading Sensor LAyer Network (CSLAN) based on Acellents SMART Layer® technology to detect and continuously monitor corrosion related damages. Multilayered metal structures in aircrafts are sometime subjected to very hostile environmental condition which are prone to develop stress corrosion cracks, pitting corrosion and other ...

  7. Structural State Sensing

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF083178

    Acellent proposes development of structural state sensing systems that function analogously to nervous systems. Different sensor types (including piezoelectric) will be used in a variety of ways to determine system state within the complex structures and advanced materials used in aviation. Multi-Modal Sensing (MMS) states include selectable characteristics, from simple temperature and pressure ...
