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. 1 kW Man-portable Hybrid-Electric Power System using Catalytic Fuel Ignition Technology

    SBC: Automotive Resources, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Work is proposed to demonstrate the feasibility of a catalytic ignition system that can be retrofitted to a light-weight, silent-running, 1 kW generator, allowing it to be satisfactorily operated on heavy fuels such as diesel and JP-8. Gensetmodifications will be closely allied to catalytic igniter technology pioneered by Automotive Resources Incorporated that enables alternative fuel combustion ...

  2. 1kW Diesel Burning Man Portable Hybrid Electric Power System using Catalytic Fuel Ignition Technology

    SBC: Automotive Resources, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The Army has indicated significant need for lightweight, heavy fuel engines for use in a wide variety of battlefield missions. The Catalytic Ignition System (SmartPlugTM) developed and patented by Automotive Resources, Inc. (ARI) promises to fulfill theArmy's "One Fuel Forward" requirement without the need for replacing the gasoline engine with a new engine design. ARI had demonstrated the abilit ...

  3. A novel dual wavelength optical beam attenuation meter for automated underwater vehicles

    SBC: Western Environmental Tech. Laboratories            Topic: N/A

    "The development of a robust, compact dual-wavelength optical beamattenuation meter termed the SAM (Scattering Attenuation Meter)is proposed. The sensor is designed for observing platforms thatrequire very small form factors such as the REMUS AUV. The devicewill have a flat sensing face exposed to the water with a coppershutter to avoid biofouling. No cleaning or maintenance will berequired for ...

  4. A Sophisticated Low Cost Avionics for Expendable Unmanned Aircraft

    SBC: CLOUD CAP TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    "For years Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have failed to deliver on their promise to revolutionize the remote-sensing industry. Their potential for small size and low cost has been offset by the lack of sufficient avionics hardware and softwareintegration resulting in expensive vehicles that are difficult to maintain, and suffer from high rates of attrition. The recent introduction of the Motor ...

  5. An Extensible Framework for Rapid Fuselet Composition

    SBC: ORIELLE, LLC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design an object-oriented scripting language that enables the discovery and rapid assembly of publish-subscribe fuselets through ontology-aware query on both data and program metadata, to implement it in an extensible manner by mapping ontoexisting interpreters and runtime infrastructures using source-to-source-transformation and library extensions, and to design and implement monito ...

  6. Automated Handling Systems for Launch and Recovery of Offboard Vehicles

    SBC: ALLIED SYSTEMS CO.            Topic: N/A

    "The objective of this proposal is to describe an automated (or semi-automated) lightweight, low-cost handling system for lauch & recovery of offboard vehicles which can be fitted to existing Navy ships or designed into new classes of ships. Many of thesystems required for this effort are either in preliminary development of have been developed. It is intended that by combining existing offboard h ...

  7. Compliant Surface Robotics

    SBC: CESR            Topic: N/A

    "In Phase I, we conducted exploratory research into hybrid locomotive modalities toward achieving the Compliant Surface Robotics (CSR) goals. We researched technologies and designs that would enable a wheeled vehicle to be integrally designed with activelycontrolled articulated structures to develop a "morphable" vehicle, with over-determined legs, wheels and other motive actuator-articulated str ...

  9. Cost-Breakthrough Titanium Production as a Commodity Metal

    SBC: Vartech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Vartech proposes a technically aggressive program for direct manufacture of titanium and titanium alloys at very low cost and high energy efficiency. The Phase II program will: (a) optimize the process, (b) prepare both "inexpensive" bulk titanium alloys,and high performance alloys, and (c ) apply the titanium alloys produced to BMDO/DOD and commercial systems. A vertical furnace reactor will be ...

  10. DUAL BAND INFRARED RADIOMETER FOR PRECISE BATTLEFIELD SKIN TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENTS

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Voxtel Inc. proposes in this Phase I effort to develop and optimize for the battlefield environment, a miniature, robust, and reliable multi-band infrared radiometer that will remotely monitor vital physiological parameters and provide accurate measures ofmillimeter wave induced hyperthermia. Thermography is a well-established discipline, but in real world situations, the parameters governing hea ...
