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. High-Energy Laser Coatings for Large, Lightweight, and Compliant Deployable Space Optics

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: AF03006

    The purpose of this Phase-II effort is to develop filtered cathodic arc plasma deposition (FCAPD) for applying multi-layer, highly reflective optical coatings to extremely light-weight and large membrane mirrors for space and high-altitude-based high-energy laser applications where glass mirrors are not practical. FCAPD coatings are ideal for this application because the deposition ions have highe ...

  3. Structure from Motion

    SBC: ACUITY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF04170

    We propose to use the principles of projective geometry and image feature extraction, tracking, and matching techniques to construct accurate, detailed three dimensional models from imagery taken with a freely moving airborne or camera. We also propose to develop methods of detecting and segmenting moving objects in complex scenes using an adaptation of existing projective geometry techniques. Cam ...

  4. Visible/UV Image Projector for Sensor Testing

    SBC: ACUMEN CONSULTING            Topic: AF04165

    New technologies are required to support MDA requirements in the area of high performance UV/VIS/NIR scene projectors for laboratory closed-loop testing of sensors and their associated control and image processing systems. Plasma display technology, currently popular for commercial television, has the potential to meet all the projection requirements such as high brightness (6000 K apparent tempe ...

  5. Dynamically Sensing and Adapting Wireless Network

    SBC: ADAPTRUM, INC.            Topic: AF04105

    In this project, we propose an integrated effort to develop a new radio technology, which we call adaptive spectrum technology, that is capable of dynamically sensing and locating the unused spectrum segments for use of communication in a way that causes no harmful interference to the designated users of the spectrum. The new radio technology improves spectrum efficiency and operation flexibility ...

  7. Advanced Cost Model for Space Concepts Development

    SBC: ADVATECH PACIFIC, INC.            Topic: AF04017

    The Advatech Pacific, Inc. Team (API Team) will analyze historical programmatic data for selected space-system development programs that are representative of current programs of interest. These programs will be analyzed with respect to specific technologies that have gone through a technology maturity cycle. This analysis will define the Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs) at each point in the de ...

  8. High-Power VCSELs for Military Applications

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: AF04156

    Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) have demonstrated themselves as a commercially viable technology. Recent technology developments have lead to a new class of commercial VCSELs designed for high power operation. These devices appear to be favorable candidates for high power military applications. In this Project, Aerius Photonics will determine the feasibility of using high power ...

  9. Fuel Cell Power System with Parallel-Connected Bi-directional DC-DC

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: AF04194

    Satellite platforms require lightweight, highly reliable energy production and storage systems to maximize payload power and performance. The regenerative fuel cell (RFC) system is a promising electrochemical technology that has a high specific energy on the order of 550Wh/kg. An RFC system in hybrid configuration with a battery requires a specialized bi-directional DC-DC converter to protect the ...

  10. Synthetic Free Flight

    SBC: AEROARTS LLC            Topic: AF04227

    The destructive expendable (DEX) is a highly promising way to defend small aircraft such as unmanned aerial vehicles. To evaluate the potential of DEXs, accurate simulation of their flight path is essential. The mission of a destructive expendable (DEX), though brief, is aerodynamically very complex. AeroArts proposes an experimental technique to simulate unsteady DEX aerodynamics. The techniq ...
