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 Z-Conductivity Composite Structures for Low-Observable Aircraft Heat Rejection (1001-951)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF131009

    ABSTRACT: Triton Systems Inc., in combination with our partner Northrop-Grumman Corporation proposes to develop a high performance composite heat exchanger system that can be integrated into airframe structures of unmanned and manned systems to provide thermal management for aircraft systems and/or mission payload. The key ingredient of the composite heat exchanger is a novel technique for pierc ...

  2. Ultra-High Density Ion Propulsion From Ionic Liquids

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF11BT10

    ABSTRACT: Busek Co. Inc. and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) propose to explore the physical limits of ionic liquid propulsion via development of new theory to explain effects of close packing emission density and to predict performance limits. The research is motivated by observations and tests demonstrating that emission from 2-dimensional porous surfaces yields order of magnitude g ...

  3. Space Based Hyper-Spectral Imaging Sensor

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF131146

    ABSTRACT: Spectral Sciences Inc. (SSI) proposes to address the need for improved battlespace intelligence by developing the Battlespace Large Area Spectral-imaging Transient-event (BLAST) sensor, optimized for space-based target detection. BLAST is a highly efficient, fast framing, Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) system with high spatial and temporal resolution. The system will detect, locate and i ...

  4. Reusable Extended Artificial Light Source

    SBC: Bodkin Design & Engineering, LLC            Topic: AF131176

    ABSTRACT: To capture images of high speed test events, the government uses high speed photography with high brightness illumination. The government would like to replace existing PF300 flashbulbs with a solution that meets or exceeds current specifications for reusable extended artificial light sources. BD & E proposes a collection of solid-state Lighting Modules based on high powered whit ...

  6. Robust, Lightweight Wiring for Space Applications

    SBC: Minnesota Wire & Cable Co.            Topic: AF112093

    ABSTRACT: An ability to reduce the weight of cables has the potential to provide significant cost savings, reduce maintenance and improve reliability of satellites. The costs of developing and producing satellites are linearly proportional with the satellite"s weight, with each kilogram costing around $1 million when delivery-to-space costs are included. With global satellite launches expect ...

  7. Cost-effective Operationally Response Membrane Antenna (CORMA)

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF121068

    ABSTRACT: ORS requires rapid delivery of low-cost payloads that meet the needs of unplanned and unanticipated spacecraft missions. Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will provide ORS, the Air Force, and other customers with a low-cost, rapidly-fabricated deployable antenna for use in a wide range of potential RF missions. The PSI team will use a combination of commercially available manufacturing techn ...

  8. Anti-reflective Coating for High-Efficiency Solar Cells

    SBC: Raydex Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF121073

    ABSTRACT: This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project seeks to further develop an AR coating on high efficiency PV device surface that can enable a reflection loss < 3% over the wavelength range from 300 nm to 1800 nm. The proposed effort will optimize the coating design and the coating process of the broadband AR coating so that it can be integrated into PV cell products. Standard t ...

  9. Optical Remote Detection of Low Level Earth Surface Vibrations

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT02

    ABSTRACT: Underground facilities can be used by rogue governments to conceal command-and-control and to manufacture weapons of mass destruction, and are an increasingly important operational challenge to U.S. military forces. Our objective is to determine improved methods of detection essential to address this critical intelligence need. Activity below the ground causes seismic surface waves th ...

  10. SAASM Compliant GPS Receiver for GEO (SGR)


    This Mayflower SRG product addresses the limitations of current SAASM receivers that do not allow for sidelobe tracking required for GEO operations and also do not meet the size, weight and power (SWaP) constraints of the intended Air Force platforms. As such, the SRG proposal when proven successful will meet an urgent Air Force need. Mayflower is proposing to study the feasibility of leveraging ...
