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. Innovative Approaches to the Fabrication of Composite Rotary Wing Main Rotor Blade Spars with Option

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N08026

    Sponsored by NAVAIR, Accudyne Systems completed a Phase 1 SBIR program, developing an equipment and process concept for cost-effective fabrication of composite rotary wing main rotor blade spars. The CH-53K spar was the study focus. The recommended work cell concept combines automated tape placement, woven fabric placement, and pick and place of 45° parallelograms to layup plies, then debulk and ...

  3. A Novel Noninvasive Microwave Sensor for Quantitative Assessment of Degree of Sensitization in Marine Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N09T022

    In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using the microwave cavity perturbation technique to detect and quantify DoS in marine aluminum alloys. We implemented an alpha version sensor prototype, characterized and validated its performance using ASTM G67 method. We also identified methods to further enhance the sensor sensitivity, so that DoS in the low (a few mg/cm2) to moderate range can be ...

  4. A Novel Automated and Controlled Dual Laser Ablation System for Selective Removal of Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF093120

    Thermal barrier coatings have been widely used to provide thermal protection to superalloy components in gas turbine engines. After certain amount of service time, the coating experiences a reduction in thickness by processes such as wear, erosion and foreign/domestic object damage. When the thickness decreases below a critical value, the thermal barrier effect provided by the coating is no longer ...

  7. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    Under the DARPA sponsored Naval Advanced Amorphous Coating (NAAC) program, a novel, thermal sprayed amorphous metal coating has been developed. Such a coating has demonstrated superior mechanical and corrosion resistance properties. Although the coating is designed to be life-of-ship, the application and operational conditions may compromise the integrity of the coating. For example, the applicati ...

  8. DIPAIN-Based Handheld Assay for the Detection of T-2 Toxin in Water Using a Handheld Reader

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A10AT021

    A rapid assay for the detection of T2 trichothecene mycotoxin in water is proposed that will use ANP Technology, Inc.'s established handheld reader and rapid acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitor test ticket format. Dipain-II and other candidate Dipain derivatives will be immobilized on cellulose and other solid supports mounted as discs in wells on the existing test ticket, similar to the AChE i ...

  9. Characterization Of Noise And Detectivity Of Nano-BiCMOS Photo-Detectors

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A09089

    Low light level visible and infrared imaging has significant importance in military surveillance and target recognition. Our newly developed low-light-level nano-BiCMOS silicon photo-detector has been experimentally proven to consistently deliver in-pixel high-gain amplification to boost external quantum efficiency and photo current signal without increased dark current. The same class of detector ...

  10. Nano-Passivation of GaSb/InAs Strained Layer Superlattices Infrared Detector

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A08103

    Long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) imaging has significant importance in military surveillance and target recognition, since human body radiation peaks in LWIR. Despite the enhanced wavelength coverage, the GaSb/InAs type-II Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) detector still exhibits relatively high surface leakage current and its associated noises. With an industrially proven nano-material, we propose ...
