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. Non-Intrusive Direct Part Marking with Femtosecond Laser Pulses

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF093191

    ABSTRACT: In Phase I, we presented options for direct marking of high-performance turbine parts using ultrashort pulse lasers, that do not compromise the integrity of said parts. In the proposed effort, we will work with our customer to: evaluate metallurgy and fatigue, and mark quality on the range of materials used for fracture critical parts; develop marking conditions for all major alloys to ...

  2. Terahertz Station Keeping Equipment for Tunable Range Capabilities

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF103002

    ABSTRACT: Current station keeping equipment (SKE) relies on radio waves for formation flying. A significant limitation of conventional SKE signals is that they are detectable at long distances by adversaries. Passive detection schemes that employ infrared and thermal cameras, electro-optic and acoustic sensors are of interest for future SKE upgrades although they lack the capability to provide su ...

  4. Ground Based Weaponized Unmanned Aircraft System

    SBC: Brock Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF083006

    ABSTRACT: The Military has a critical need for a tactical weapon to engage soft, fixed targets in remote areas. A system is needed to operate semi-autonomously to destroy or disable nearby targets in support of base defense and a variety of other soft target applications within a 30km range. Brock Technologies Kinetic Fan Tactical Missile (KFTM) developed under this Phase II effort will address t ...

  5. Power System Robustness Assessment Tool for All-Electric Aircraft

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF103203

    ABSTRACT: Ridgetop will develop an innovative Robustness Assessment for Design (RAD) tool for aircraft electrical power systems (EPS) to meet system safety, reliability, maintainability, and energy optimization requirements in each design stage by calculating system-level robustness. The design employs flow graph models for components at different hierarchies. The measurement of robustness take ...

  6. Radiation-Hardened, Analog-to-Digital Converter with High-Bit Precision

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF103092

    ABSTRACT: In Phase II, Ridgetop Group will develop a high-performance radiation-hardened ADC suitable for use in satellite communication (SATCOM) systems where radiation exposure would otherwise degrade performance. This proposal responds to Air Force topic AF103-092, with the objective of designing a radiation-hardened, high speed (2 GSPS) analog-to-digital data converter (ADC) with high bit pre ...

  7. Using a Novel Family of Electrolytes to Extend the Safety and Temperature Range of Li-ion Batteries

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: AF103232

    ABSTRACT: Small sized weapons need power sources that can tolerate severe environmental temperature conditions and must install them in extremely limited space. MER"s lithium-ion battery is highly suitable to fit in a limited volume but requires new materials to handle these harsh environmental conditions. In a Phase I, MER Corporation has successfully established a Li-ion battery chemistry ...

  8. Sky Diver- Air Deployed Unmanned Aircraft System

    SBC: Brock Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF083006

    ABSTRACT: Air Force operations require more real-time situational awareness and sensor deployment from extended stand-off distances and for longer durations. Sensor data obtained from current gunship operations is limited by stand-off distance constraints, the resolution of onboard sensors, and the inability to see below the weather to the objective area. A system solution is needed that can inc ...
