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. Radiation-Hardened Adaptive Modular Power System

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: AF121056

    ABSTRACT: To address the Air Force need for versatile satellite power electronics, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to complete the development of a new Radiation-Hardened Adaptive Modular Power (RHAMP) system based on an array of sensor power monitors (SPMs) coupled with space-qualified lithium ion sources adapting to the fluctuating power needs of spacecraft electronics during LEO, ME ...

  2. Modeling of Variable Surface Roughness Effects in Turbulence Models for Rotorcraft Applications

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: A12075

    The goal of this Phase II program is to develop a simulation tool to estimate the aerodynamic effects of variable surface roughness, such as from the surface abrasion of helicopter rotor blades and the protective coatings that are applied to counteract it. The modeling is based on a displacement of origin methodology, within the k-omega turbulence model frameworks. Our initial investigations sugge ...

  3. GPS EMitter LOCalization (GEMLOC)

    SBC: Coherent Navigation, Inc.            Topic: HSB0131004

    Our Phase II effort in response to DHS SBIR Topic H-SB013.1-004 we propose to investigate the development of a next-generation, ground- and air-based, tiered, inexpensive, low-power, high-performance GPS emitter detection and localization system. The system will provide high-accuracy (high-sensitivity), real-time or near-real-time estimates of position, velocity, transmit frequency, and transmit p ...

  4. Bragg Grating Enhanced Narrowband Single Photon SPDC Source

    SBC: Gener8, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Spontaneous Parametric Down Conversion (SPDC) is currently an active research area in quantum communications (QC) to develop entangled single photon sources. However, the bandwidth of current SPDC sources is too broad for many applications. NIST researchers have modeled a solution to this problem that reduces the bandwidth by >50. We propose to fabricate a prototype of the NIST device by developin ...

  5. Digital Micromirror Device Detection Scheme for Transmission Scanning Electron Microscopy

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Accurate quantitative characterization of materials is crucial for a wide range of industrial and research applications. New transmission scanning electron microscopy (t-SEM) methods have the potential for high-resolution imaging similar to transmission electron microscopy (TEM) with a less expensive, more widely available SEM system. In Phase I, RadiaBeam Technologies demonstrated the feasibility ...

  6. Advanced Tactile Sensing for Dexterous Robot Hands in Industrial Automation and Assembly

    SBC: Syntouch L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Robotic actuators exceed human speed, accuracy, and strength, but human hands are regarded as the ultimate in dexterity. We propose this is due absent human-like tactile sensing and intelligent reflexive behaviors in robots. We’ve created multimodal compliant tactile sensors that mimic the sensory ability of the human fingertip and algorithms that fill this absence. In this research we will inte ...

  7. Imaging through low-visibility fire smoke for ship-board navigation of robotic fire-fighting systems

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: N12AT021

    The goals of this Phase II project are to develop a prototype vision system and demonstrate its capability of locating boundaries and obstructions, normally 15 feet away, within one second in scenarios containing smoke from a real fire. This vision system needs to be compact and lightweight. ASC will fabricate and modify a new TigerCub camera and take advantages of its weather resistant ability as ...

  8. Mesh Generation and Control for Moving Boundary Problems

    SBC: HYPERCOMP, INC.            Topic: A12aT012

    In this STTR project we aim to build software interfaces and enhancements to existing parallel mesh adaptation libraries for applications in high performance flow modeling. In Phase-I we demonstrated a preliminary implementation of such a system and identified technology needs. Phase-II development will include both open source, as well as commercially supported mesh adaptation software and interf ...

  10. UV IR Image Combiner

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: AF112201

    ABSTRACT: To address the Air Force need for a spatial and spectral beam combiner that integrates separate collimated ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) image sources into a single co-aligned image identical to the size and shape of both input images while preserving spectral characteristics of both, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to advance development of the new UV IR Image Combiner ...
