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. Multi-National Cultural Difference Modeling

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N03112

    As demonstrated with recent engagements, US forces will not go into combat alone. Multinational coalition forces will be the norm and our forces must flexibly adapt to the command and control (C2) environment with the newly formed team. Whether a neighbor or long time ally with similar but distinctly separate C2 styles or a geographically separated ally with little common C2 techniques, the end p ...

  3. COoperative Multiagent System for automated TArget Recognition by UAVs (COMSTAR)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N04T005

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) use has increased significantly, from rudimentary reconnaissance to complex missions. In the process of becoming smarter, UAVs have also become more complex and a lot more expensive. An alternative to the complex and costly UAV model is a new paradigm employing multiple, smaller UAVs that operate in virtual swarms to achieve the complex objectives of today’s missi ...

  4. Submarine Automated Simulation (SubAutoSim)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N04159

    The Navy has issued a challenge to develop an interactive simulation environment that will model tactical and environmental entities in real time and enable goal-directed scenario generation. This will serve the needs of a myriad of applications, such as system integration, testing, certification, training, rehearsal, and life-cycle support. The current methodology of generating pre-planned “ca ...

  5. Grid-Group Cm-alpha, Profiling Cultural Factors for Decision Aiding

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF05069

    Human biases and routines, capabilities, and limitations strongly influence overall mission effectiveness; whether during real operations or simulations using models of humans. Many missions and environments challenge human capabilities (e.g., combat stress, waiting, fatigue from long hours or lengthy tour of duty). Knowledge is needed on cultural differences that may affect human effectiveness ...

  6. Non-Plane-Wave Noise Source Localization in Very Shallow Water

    SBC: 3 Phoenix, Inc.            Topic: N04T011

    Spatial processing for Navy arrays has been designed in nearly all cases based on the a horizontally propagating plane wave model, the underlying assumption being that energy arrives from far field targets as a superposition of free field traveling waves at frequencies determined by the target signature. It is well known that acoustic propagation is much more complex than the simple model due to ...

  7. Wireless Sensing for Survivable Machinery Control

    SBC: 3 Phoenix, Inc.            Topic: N05T020

    Among the Navy’s goals for new ship construction in the 21st century are to achieve cost savings in ship installation, to increase survivability of the vital communications infrastructure, and to enable manning reductions through highly automated ship operations. The rapid advancements and proliferation of wireless technology makes it a primary candidate for adaptation to machinery and total sh ...

  8. Avoidance of Twinline Towed Array Entanglement

    SBC: ADAPTIVE METHODS, INC.            Topic: N04210

    The Program Executive Office of the Littoral and Mine Warfare Systems, Maritime Surveillance Systems Program Office (PMS 485) operates SURTASS T-AGOS ships with TwinLine acoustic surveillance arrays in the Western Pacific where they encounter areas of intense fishing activity. The TwinLine array system consists of two acoustic streamers that are towed by a heavy tow cable and separated by mine-swe ...

  9. Maintainer Head and Hearing Protection

    SBC: Adaptive Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N04255

    The U.S. Navy is seeking innovations that lead to lightweight, more comfortable, head protection technologies that are compatible with recent advancements in single and double hearing protection devices used by aircraft engine maintainers. The current USN cranial system, worn by aircraft maintainers on the flight deck, was originally designed in the 1950’s. During the past decades, jet aircraf ...

  10. Advanced Audio Technologies for Extreme Hearing Protection

    SBC: Adaptive Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N05095

    High noise environments increase the difficulty of face-to-face communications, with or without the use of hearing protection. Further, understanding the acoustic cues that are available in the environment for maintaining situational awareness becomes increasingly difficult as background noise levels increase. It is imperative to provide high-performing hearing protection devices for use in the ...
