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. Drag Removal by Autonomous Grapple (DRAG)

    SBC: LOADPATH, LLC            Topic: AF173016

    For the entire spacecraft community including current and future developers and operators whose hardware is inherently at risk from catastrophic collisions with space debris, the Drag Removal by Autonomous Grapple (DRAG) is an autonomous payload system that docks to identified space debris and increases drag with a deployable sail to accelerate de-orbit times by at least an order of magnitude.Unli ...

  2. Prognostics Approaches for Remote Piloted Aircraft (RPA) Propulsion and Vehicle Systems in Harsh Environments

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: AF121170

    This is a follow-on SBIR Phase II as a result of a fully executed SBIR Technology Transition Plan to transition MSIs COgnitive Stochastic MOdeling System (COSMOS) in a microsystem hardware to increase reliability of systems and components which would reduce maintenance and increase operational availability, which reduces the number of aircraft needed to complete missions. ACC and the AFRL propulsi ...

  3. Verification and Validation of Algorithms for Resilient Complex Software Controlled Systems

    SBC: XL Scientific, LLC dba Verus Research            Topic: AF17CT05

    Verification of the Guidance, Navigation and Control (GN&C) algorithms and software utilized onboard spacecraft is of paramount importance to ensure resilient, correct operation after launch. Rather than wait until the GN&C software has been deployed to perform on-orbit verification, offline verification integrated into the design process will improve mission performance, significantly reduce the ...

  4. Detection of Radio Frequency and Magnetic Field Bioeffects in Living Cells

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT001

    Radio frequency communications and sensors are everywhere in both personal and military life. RF fields are also used in some medical therapies. However, little is known about the medical effects that result from the routine exposure of tissue to RF fields. To understand such effects, new instrumentation is needed that can quantify the RF radiation amplitude with spatial resolution comparable to t ...

  5. Full Mueller Matrix Characterization of Imaged Samples using Digital Holography

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF18AT007

    The Department of Defense relies on a worldwide network of radar and optical sites to maintain Space Situational Awareness.Although careful consideration during site selection process solves some of this mission's challenges, optical sensor imaging of objects at significant ranges is always hampered by many other factors, such as limited-aperture optics and atmospheric turbulence.There remains, ho ...

  6. Damage Morphology for Advanced Concretes

    SBC: Dynamic Systems And Research Corporation            Topic: AF18AT012

    The development and implementation of new damage morphology models for concrete materials is critical to understanding their dynamic behavior during severe shock loading environments.Current constitutive models of conventional strength concretes do not accurately represent the behavioral characteristics of new ultra-high strength concretes because of differences in damage mechanisms during failure ...
