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. Detection of Hostile Fire from the Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA)

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF121102

    ABSTRACT:Recent technical demonstrations in hostile fire sensing and classification have highlighted the use of costly cryogenically-cooled electro-optical sensors.While capable, these types of sensors come with a higher initial purchase price as well as high life cycle costs per platform.This activity will implement a broad area hostile fire sensing architecture that uses lower cost discrete sens ...

  3. Handheld Dismount Kit for Persistent, Precision Navigation in GPS-challenged Environments for Military Operations

    SBC: Integrated Solutions for Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF153002

    ABSTRACT:The warfighter needs an accurate and reliable source of Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) when GPS is not available. Fortunately, technical advances in navigation sensors and algorithms can reduce dependence on the venerable, yet vulnerable, GPS system. Inertial sensors are becoming increasingly smaller and more accurate. Low cost, powerful embedded computing platforms enable real ti ...

  6. Global-Local Modeling of Aircraft Occupant Safety Assessment during Ejection

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF161044

    ABSTRACT: The extreme ejection conditions in the fifth-generation fighter F-35 could lead to occupant injury. Rocket sled testing of ejection seat with manikins is limited in simulating human response. The current neck injury models and injury criteria from automotive safety are inadequate for the ejection-related injury. We propose to develop the global-to-local finite element models (FEM) and si ...

  8. PFSS: Probabilistic Fluid System Software for Tactical Aircraft Thermal Management

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF161076

    ABSTRACT: Modern tactical and commercial aircraft are now dependent on the liquid fuel entering the engine as a primary heat sink for cooling critical engine, power generation and actuation components. The civilian-class fuels being used have an inherently greater variability in thermal properties such as specific heat, which can result in less cooling to critical components or degradation of the ...
