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. Intelligent, Adaptive Research and Training Platform for Individual and Team Training, with Web Capabilities and Applications

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In an information-rich environment, the possibility of enhancing the decision-making processes and outcomes is closely tied to the proper and timely management and analysis of information. In a team decision making environment coopertion, communication, collaboration, shared situational awareness and mental models become critical parameters for success. Computer technology, hardware and software ...

  2. Dynamic Data Mining for Information Exploitation

    SBC: 21ct, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sucessful completion of Phase I efforts shall provide the Air Force with an intelligent dynamic data mining architecture and demonstration prototype. We shall develop the concept of a profile that shall be used as a basis for identification and linking of relationships based on a rough sketch or profile of the situation. The use of profiles shall be used in enhancing existing case-based and asso ...

  3. Abductive Electronics Prognostic Tool (ADEPT)

    SBC: ABTECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    AbTech Corporation proposes to apply its unique Statistical Network ModelingTM technology to develop a non contact prognostic assessment tool that 1) acquires, processes, and analyzes electronic radiated signal data, 2) learns the expected characteristics and patterns of specific radiated signals measured from microelectronic semiconductor devices using AbTech's statistical network modeling techno ...

  4. Advanced Neurocontrol Methods for a Remotely Piloted Vehicle


    During Phase I we will advance and develop innovative Adaptive Critic based neural network control methodologies specifically for a Remotely Piloted Vehicle (RPV) based upon the aerodynamics of the National AeroSpace Plane (NASP). Phase II will involve the actual implementation which will prove these neurocontrol concepts. This work will be the first step in creating the complex aerocontroller for ...

  5. Aerodynamic Drag Reduction


    Accurate Automation will design a weakly ionized gas drag reduction system for an advanced fixed wing aircraft. To this end we will develop a theoretical model for the WIG drag reduction phenomena, initiate a series of two dimensional shock tank experiments, evaluate the engineering feasibility of employing the technology on an operational aircraft, and perform a conceptual design for a wind tunn ...

  6. Conversion Process for Legacy Stable Based Printed Circuit Board Atrwork

    SBC: ACI TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Master artwork for Air Force systems is traditionally delivered on polyester-based mylar film. This film tends to degrade over time, even when stored in climate-controlled facilities. In addition, drawings must be digitized before circuit boards can be manufactured, which is an expensive and time consuming step. A reliable and repeatable artwork conversion process is needed.This project will pe ...

  7. Electronically Shunted Smart Material Damper Packages for Extreme Environments

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACX proposes an alternate approach to damping for extreme environments, which uses an electrically shunted, surface mounted, smart material. This shunting approach has been most widely used in less extreme environments in conjunction with piezoceramic materials. The smart material is bonded to the surface of the target structure, in this case a part inside an aircraft engine. Stress on the part ...

  8. Smart, Adaptive Packages for Vibration Suppression

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In many structures with vibration problems, the nature of the problem is uncertain, or varies over time. Thus it is not possible 'a priori to design a linear, time-invariant, (LTI) feedback control law which is guaranteed to meet performance, or possibly even stability requirements over the entire operating range. These applications require an intelligent control system which can adapt to the ch ...

  9. Ultra Narrowband Optical Parametric Oscillator

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Presently there are no broadly tenable, narrow linewidth souces that operate throughout the mid-infrared (mid-IR) region of the spectrum, from 1 to 5 microns. Traditional sources have very low spectral brightness (low power per unit spectral bandwidth). This proposal describes a novel approach to produce a source with very high spectral brightness, tunable over the range of 1.1 to 4.3 microns. ...

  10. Solid State Seed Laser for COIL

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force Phillips Laboratory is seeking approaches for demonstrating frequency agile COIL (chemical oxygen iodine lasers) operating near 1.31 microns and at 10 kHz rep rates. Frequency conversion approaches must be capable of handling high average power levels, greater than 10 kWatts. Converting a COIL device to high peak powers will be necessary for frequency conversion. The approach prop ...
