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. 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

  2. Mid-IR Meta-Lenses

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: AF18AT005

    In Phase I of this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) and Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) will demonstrated high-efficiency mid-IR metasurface flat optics. We will use Metalorganic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) to grow Lead Telluride (PbTe) on Barium Fluoride (BaF2) substrates to construct flat meta-lenses equivalent of cylindrical and aspheric lenses for mid-IR image ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Robust, Light-Weight Bistatic Weather Radar

    SBC: Basic Commerce and Industries Inc.            Topic: AF181061

    BCI will develop a Portable Bi-static Weather Radar (PBWR) which can be deployed by the US Air Force in forward operating areas with a minimal size, weight, and power (SWaP) footprint. This radar will provide adverse weather detection in the theater of operations with improved performance and reliability over the existing Portable Doppler Radar (PDR) solution currently used. The PBWR system will c ...

  10. Spectrum Localization for Improved Situational Awareness

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF17AT013

    There is a demand for scalable, wideband architectures that support spectrum monitoring, source localization, and emitter classification. RF spectrum is becoming increasingly congested as the number of emitters grows and their bandwidths widen. Technologies that improve the DoDs ability to create an accurate, detailed assessment of operating spectrum are critical to improving situational awarenes ...
