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. Development of a Low Cost Technique for the Fabrication of HfC/C-fiber Composites for Propulsion Systems

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this program is to develop a low cost, flexible manufacturing method for the production of Cf reinforced composites for ablation-resistant propulsion components for Theater Missile Defense (TMD) concepts. The matrix material selected for demonstration of the technology will be HfC, a material which has demonstrated good oxidation and ablation resistance at elevated temperatures.

  2. High Power Frequency Doubled Laser Diode Devices

    SBC: Altos, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I program will determine the practicality of increasing the second harmonic (SH) output of frequency doubling devices by at least 5 times current gutput powers. Altos has demonstrated in preliminary experiments have a 2 times to 3 times increase in SH output by creating thermal gradients across the waveguide structures used to frequency double the lase ...

  4. High Efficiency Floating Junction Gallium Arsenide Solar Cell

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AstroPower proposes to develop a new ultra-thin gallium arsenide solar cell for space applications, that will result in significantly higher performance compared to conventional gallium arsenide and silicon solar cells. This design incorporates a "floating" junction on the front of the ultra-thin solar cell and a collecting junction at the back of the device. This design will significantly decreas ...

  5. AlGaAsSb/InGaAsSb on GaSb, Infrared, Separate Absorption and Multiplication, Avalanche Photodiodes

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AstroPower proposes to develop high performance, room temperature, mass-producible, low-cost infrared detectors using liquid-phase heteroepitaxy of lattice-matched InGaAsSb and AlGaAsSb on GaSb substrates. The structure of these detectors will be a Separate Absorption and Multiplication Avalanche Photodiode (SAM-APD). This structure has proven to be an effective means of producing large gain in ...

  6. Low-Defect GaN Surrogate Substrates by Epitaxial Lateral Overgrowth

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose exploratory development of new epitaxial growth technologies for low-defect GiN epitaxial structures and surrogate substrates. A significant feature of our approach is epitaxial latval overgrowth for "defect filtering." We present arguments that such epitaxial lateral overgrowth will lead to GaN material of unprecedented quality with respect to defects, stress, and purity. In the Phase ...

  7. Low Cost Space Coupled Phased Array Radar

    SBC: FRONTIER ENGINEERING            Topic: N/A

    The Low Cost Space Coupled Phased Array Radar is a high performance, low cost, compact, totally integrated radar system designed specifically for mobile and small ship platforms. Design and cost objectives are met by use of an innovative space coupled array architecture which cost effectively utilizes emerging monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) and a sophisticated, compact wavefo ...

  8. Pre-Award Systems Acquisition Processing System (PASAPS)

    SBC: Frontline Solutions Inc            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovations Research Phase I project will develop and demonstrate the feasibility of an electronic architecture that supports the processes associated with an RFP life cycle. An RFP life cycle begins with the development of an RFP, progresses through an analysis of resultant proposals, and continues beyond the contract award. The resulting new architecture, called ...

  9. 2-D Ultrasound Scanning Probes for 3-D Medical Diagnostic Imaging

    SBC: Guided Therapy Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The primary objective of this proposal is twofold. The first is to investigate theoretically and experimentally acoustic, electrical, and geometric parameters of 1.5-D ultrasound transducer array. The modeling and simulations of the arrays of various geometry, center frequencies, and acoustic materials will be performed, analyzed and optimized. The optimization criteria will be the best achieva ...

  10. Thermally Insulated Flexible Composite Cores for Aerospace Applications

    SBC: Infinite Materials & Products, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aerospace composite panels containing a core structure usually use an expanded honeycomb of either aluminum, NOMEX, or carbon fiber. These types of composite panels are often used as structure since the honey-comb core provides stiffness in the "Z" direction. However, they provide no thermal insulation value. Aerospace craft operating both inside and outside the earth's atmosphere experience envir ...
