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. Wide-Field-of-View Collection Optics for Infrared

    SBC: COMPUTER OPTICS INC.            Topic: AF071280

    Computer Optics Inc.(COI) proposes to examine infra red spectral waveband separation, a key technological issue identified during the Phase I program. At the completion of Phase II, this work will result in significant enabling technology available to be deployed as part of the AIRSS SBIR program.

  2. Longer Length Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) for Electric Power Applications

    SBC: Nanocomp Technologies Inc.            Topic: AF073061

    Nanocomp has demonstrated a continuous fabrication process for SWCNT wires and a batch process for very long SWCNT tapes. Modifications to the conductivity, proposed here, may improve the EM absorption characteristics of these sheets. In this proposal we posit that a CNT wire may be used as a current conductor for both dc and ac frequencies under a wide variety of conditions. Some preliminary dat ...

  3. Untethered Helmet-Mounted Display for Night Vision Goggle Training Systems

    SBC: OASYS TECHNOLOGY, LLC.            Topic: AF071019

    This program will produce a prototype wireless head-mounted night vision goggle simulator assembly which provides a full 1024x1280 pixel resolution at a 60 Hz frame rate. The assembly will have the outward appearance and functional interface similar to the current aviator’s night vision goggles, but will benefit from a battery operable, wireless data link which will not restrict the operator’ ...

  4. An Advanced Cryocooler for Space-Borne Applications

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF081095

    Future Department of Defense (DoD) space electro-optical payloads will require reliable, efficient, and lightweight cryocoolers for sensor cooling. Turbo-Brayton cryocoolers are an ideal candidate for these payloads. The technology is reliable and space proven with one unit having provided over 5.5 years of successful operations on the Hubble Space Telescope without any change in performance. R ...

  5. Micromachined Nano-G Accelerometer

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF073103

    Micro- and nano-satellites are being planned for use on future scientific space missions. However, since their payloads are much smaller than traditional satellites, the instruments used on these next generation satellites need to be miniaturized (in mass, size, and power). In order for small satellites to be used to map and model the atmosphere, a miniaturized accelerometer that can measure acc ...

  6. Highly Efficient, Lightweight, High Temperature Blower for Solid Oxide Fuel Cell

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: OSD08EP3

    Long-endurance unmanned vehicle (UV) and munition systems require lightweight, compact, and efficient power systems. Advanced fuel cells are promising technologies that can be used for both primary propulsion and auxiliary power units for these applications. A lightweight, high temperature, efficient cathode blower is a critical component to enable a compact SOFC power unit to achieve the high spe ...

  7. Demonstration of Inter-Turbine Burners for Part-Power Improvements

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: OSD07ES9

    Conventional gas turbine engines are often optimized for a specific narrow range of the flight envelope and perform much less efficiently at off-design conditions. Introduction of an inter turbine burner (ITB) into a gas turbine design can add a level of adjustability to the engine performance that in turn provides improved operating efficiency over a wider range of the operating envelope. Durin ...

  8. Advanced In-Flight Rebreather

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF071034

    Flight crews require supplemental oxygen for emergency high-cabin-altitude operations. Some personnel require a walk-around oxygen supply to move freely throughout the cabin until the altitude is reduced to a safe level. Current low-pressure bottles cannot supply oxygen for an adequate duration in an acceptable cylinder size, and multiple cylinder fills are usually required to meet common missio ...

  9. Microburner for Deployed Energy Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF071131

    Compact, efficient, and sustainable electric power generators are needed to provide mobile electric power for deployable military bases. Fuel cells with fuel processors that run on logistic fuels are attractive candidates due to inherent efficiency, practicality, sustainability, and safety. In these low-power processing devices (3 kW to 15 kW), fuel atomization and evaporation prove to be limi ...

  10. Spatially Registered Multispectral Polarimetric Sensor


    Solid State Scientific Corporation (SSSC) is pleased to propose this Phase II program to develop a unique Polarimetric Spectral Imager (PSI) that will be capable of simultaneously imaging multiple polarimetric components in the scene in multiple spectral bands. The approach will capitalize on the design concepts developed during the successful Phase I effort to create a 9-channel imager based on ...
