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. Micromachined Deformable Mirrors for Beam Control and Imaging Applications

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: N/A

    Micromachined deformable mirrors are being commercialized by the contractor and applied to DOD related projects due to their light weight, fast response, small size, and inexpensive fabrication costs. During Phase II, the contractor and university teamwill demonstrate a novel projection system incorporating a micromachined deformable mirror, and develop a complete adaptive optics system based upo ...

  2. Spawning and Hatchery Technology to Improve Hybrid Catfish Production

    SBC: Alabama Catfish Inc. d/b/a Harvest Select Farm            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Catfish imports are coming from third world nations capable of producing catfish and selling lower prices than American counterparts. Therefore, methods that improve efficiency and reduce the cost of producing catfish would be a tremendous asset to the industry. The hybrid catfish between channel catfish female and blue catfish males has been shown to have many superior char ...

  3. Next Generation Inertial Reference Unit (NG-IRU)

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force is pursuing aircraft and satellite-based high power laser systems to engage and destroy missiles at long ranges (hundreds to thousands of kilometers). A precision inertial reference unit (IRU) is critical to successful operation of longrange, high power laser systems for missile defense. The IRU enables the system to accurately point the payload telescope and attached tracking sens ...

  5. SBIR Phase II: Group Coding for Reliable High Performance Network-Centric Storage

    SBC: DRI            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase II project takes advantage of a powerful new coding technique called Group Coding (GC) pioneered in Phase I by Data Reliability Inc. (DRI), and an innovative storage system architecture called NetSTOR, to build a prototype for a highly available, reliable, high performance, application-friendly, and scalable network-based storage engine. The engine is multi-platform software that c ...

  6. A Lightweight Ultra-Wideband Lens TEM Horn with Low Sidelobes and Low Radar Cross Section

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Ultra-Wideband radar systems could contribute significantly to the detection and identification of unknown objects. UWB radars have been shown to work well in environments where conventional radars fail, such as looking through foliage or soil. However,UWB radars suffer from the lack of an antenna with low sidelobes, while still maintaining the ability to radiate a clean impulse. Currently availab ...

  7. Solar Powered Bilateral Virtual Fencing Using Global Positioning System Technology & Animal Behavior for Controlling Free-Ranging Animals

    SBC: Future Segue            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Managing free-ranging animal distribution in real-time remains a worldwide challenge. Most conventional approaches to improve animal distribution cannot be implemented in real-time because the tool to bring about the change is fixed in time and or space while forage and animal resources are temporally and spatially dynamic. Until recently Bilateral Virtual Fencing (BVF) was ...

  10. Donor Cornea Characterization System Phase II

    SBC: Kestrel Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Prior to surgery the donor cornea is screened for a number of pathologies and its history is examined for contra-indicated events, including the application of refractive surgery. Current techniques, such as topological measurement, produce significant errors, resulting in rejection of viable corneas and worse, potential use of modified corneas. With over a mi ...
