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. Instrument for Characterization of Off-axis Direct and Ultraviolet Scatter (CODUS) for the Joint Standard Instrumenation System (JSIS)

    SBC: Princeton Science, Inc. (Scitec, Inc.)            Topic: MDA04010

    The purpose of the present effort is to provide a capability to the Joint Standard Instrumentation Suite (JSIS) for the characterization of ultraviolet atmospheric scattering in order to better determine the impact of atmospheric absorption/scattering on missile signatures.A working prototype of the Characterization of Off-axis Direct and Ultraviolet Scatter (CODUS) instrument will be built and de ...

  2. Low SWaP scalable GmAPD LADAR receiver with 25 m pitch

    SBC: Princeton Lightwave, Inc.            Topic: AF171118

    The SWaP of 3-D imaging LADAR receivers is approaching the point where incorporation of full LADAR systems into small unmanned aerial vehicles (SUAVs) is within reach. However, while the SWaP of the receiver subsystem is an important consideration, the SW

  3. Operational Outer Zone Energetic Charged Particle Model


    Earths outer radiation belt, which consists of electrons with hundreds of keV to MeV energies, is a highly dynamic and driven environment.The large variations in electron flux, if unaccounted for, can cause satellites that travel through this complex region to experience anomalous behavior ranging from temporary satellite outages due to electrostatic discharge events in system electronics to poten ...

  4. NEUTRON: Network Enforcement Using TRansctiONs

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF17BT004

    SIFT proposes Network Enforcement Using TRansactONs (NEUTRON) a dynamic fine-grained network enforcement policy design that captures network dependencies.NEUTRON closes the knowledge gap between mission needs and observed network traffic to increase mission network awareness. Then using that knowledge develops a revolutionary security enforcement policy based on network transactions.It reduces the ...

  6. Radio Frequency (RF) Filter Tuning Element

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF18AT015

    To meet the requirements of AF18A-T015 solicitation, MaXentric and University of California San Diego are proposing the development of a low loss, high linearity tunable bank of varactors. The tunable capacitor is targeting a compact integrated design, capable of a tuning range up to 10:1, with a minimum Q of 75, and handling up to 20W CW. During phase I, the team will (1) optimize the losses and ...

  7. Scalable PROFA-based Talbot Array for High-Power Coherent Combining at 2 m

    SBC: Chiral Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT30

    In Phase II of this STTR, Chiral Photonics, Inc. (CPI) proposes to develop a high-power fiber-based laser with near diffraction limited beam quality operating at a wavelength of 2 m by coherently combining up to 61 individual fiber lasers. The design of this high-power laser will be based on a Talbot cavity which will passively lock the phases of each of the individual lasers. A key component of t ...

  9. Externally Mounted Wide-range Saturated Steam Flow Meter

    SBC: DHPC Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF181008

    Technologies currently used for measuring steam mass flow rates have deficiencies that result in performance limitations and measurement errors.These limitations include the need for improved accuracy, inaccurate (or lack of) steam dryness assessment, and reliable operation over a limited range of flow turndown rates.Internally mounted meters alter the flow dynamics and are subject to corrosion, d ...

  10. Next Generation Satellite Transponder using Low-Cost Adaptive HPA Linearization Technologies

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF181041

    To meet the requirements for AF171_041, "Next Generation Satellite Transponder using Low-Cost Adaptive HPA Linearization Technologies," MaXentric proposes a solution that essentially utilizes the existing satellite hardware to implement adaptive bandlimited digital pre-distortion (DPD). The pre-distortion will work within the bandwidths of the existing hardware and does not require any new ADCs/DA ...
