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. Fast, Flexible, Adaptive Channel Coding with Near-Shannon-Limit Performance

    SBC: 0 DB CODING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The work proposed here presents a novel approach to channel coding which will provide flexibility and robustness which are necessary to alleviate many significant limitations in current RF communication systems. The proposed approach is entitledTail-Biting Circular-Trellis Block Coding (TBC2). This family of coding methods provides unique advantages in the tactical military communication environm ...

  2. Separation of Speech from Background

    SBC: AETION TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: N/A

    Human ability to attend to a single voice in the presence of background interference is remarkable. If this could be imitated in practical technology it would be of great benefit for automatic speech recognition and other applications. Researchers at OhioState University have demonstrated computational methods for separating speech from interfering sounds that imitate human auditory processing, an ...

  3. Supportable Sandwich Control Surfaces


    Sandwich structural designs are the most weight efficient concepts for stability-critical components such as control surfaces. The objective of Phase I of this study was to demonstrate the feasibility of producing a honeycomb sandwich structure using aunique Double Wall Honeycomb design. This new ARDL honeycomb design is called Hexagonal Double wall structure or

  4. 3D Simulation of Laser Additive Manufacturing [3D-SLAM]

    SBC: Applied Optimization, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Applied Optimization proposes to develop 3D Simulation of LAM, and verify its accuracy by correlating its results with microstructure data at the Boeing Phantom Works, for parts that are different from each other in terms of substrate and rib thicknesses,and build height. The simulation will model laser-powder-substrate interaction, using a combined analytical-numerical approach, such that it is t ...

  5. Conductive Resin Systems for Aircraft Composite Structures

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    This Phase II SBIR program seeks to create nanofiber reinforced polymer composites with superior properties for use in aircraft applications. Property targets include electrical conductivity of 25 S/cm and thermal conductivity of 50 W/m-K, withoutdegradation in mechanical properties. Materials to be used include low cost carbon nanofibers, metal-coated carbon nanofibers, and a variety of thermos ...

    SBIR Phase II 2003 Department of DefenseAir Force


    Austral Engineering and Software, Inc. proposes to continue development of a strategy and software for integrating nondestructive evaluation (NDE) models and design tools, through a systems-based approach, into a computer-aided software system for productlife cycle design and optimization. In Phase I, AES developed a strategy for modeling and integration, built a proof-of-concept software system, ...

  7. Detecting and Extracting Image Similarities, Differences and Target Patterns

    SBC: Automation, Integration of Information & Sy            Topic: N/A

    This proposal proposes the synergistic integration of several methods for mining images, detecting, correlating and evaluating the existence of artifacts due to either hidden information or changes or target patterns or noise. The first method is based onthe Pixels Flow Functions (PFF) able to detect changes in images by projecting the pixel values vertically, horizontally and diagonally. These pr ...

  8. Novel Delivery Systems for Threat Detection

    SBC: VAC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Organic optical brighteners function by absorbing UV wavelengths and fluorescing visible light. When wavelengths of the entire visible spectrum are emitted, white light is the resultant color. Specific organic optical brighteners have been used inlimited military applications.Some biological compounds will also fluoresce when interrogated by UV sources. More specifically , materials such as por ...

  9. Advanced Multiband Multimode Programmable Transceiver (AMMPT)


    Military telemetry applications frequently choose between one of two frequency bands [1435-1525 MHz (L-Band) and 2200-2390 MHz (S-Band)]. The systems available today are limited to operation in only one band for each piece of hardware purchased. Aproduct that could cover all the bands in this frequency range with one set of hardware, and that can transmit using a number of modulation formats wou ...

  10. Computational Methods for Feedback Controllers for Aerodynamics Flow Applications

    SBC: Cobalt Solutions, Llc            Topic: N/A

    A software toolbox for closed loop flow control investigations will be developed. Our proposed toolbox integrates a well tested Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solver (Cobalt) with feedback and controls specific software tools implemented in Matlab. Alldata exchange and output will use efficient open standard data formats to interface the results to most any commercial visualization package. Th ...
