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. An Ultrahigh Speed Demultiplexer for Optical Communication Systems

    SBC: Elsicon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Elsicon Incorporated proposes to develop an optical demultiplexer appropriate for use in high bandwidth fiber-optic communication systems. The demultiplexer will be capable of reducing an optical input bit stream with an aggregate bit rate of greater than 100 Gbits/sec down to a 1 Gbit/sec baseband rate. Therefore, by distributing the full serial data stream among an array of these devices, ultrah ...

  2. Brazed Aluminum Ribbon Composites Materials for Cryogenic Tanks

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: N/A

    A material which is stronger than conventional aluminum, less permeable to liquid hydrogen than polymer matrix composites (PMCs), less flammable that PMCs in the presence of liquid oxygen, and can be made into large, complex shapes without an autoclave, would have a significant advantage over current cryogenic tank materials. Touchstone Research Laboratory proposes its ...

  4. Co-Injection Resin Transfer Molding (CIRTM)

    SBC: ANHOLT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Shipboard structures employing composites typically use glass/vinyl ester (VE) manufactured with vacuum assisted RTM. This composite system offers reduced weight, no corrosion and improved signature performance but lacks the fire performance characteristics required for shipboard use. Phenolic resins (PH) provide outstanding fire performance but are difficult to process and offer lower structur ...

  5. Efficient CFD-Based Aerodynamic Shape Optimization

    SBC: Optimal Solutions Software, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The overall objective of this work is to develop a general-purpose CFD-based, shape optimization tool for robust and efficient aerodynamic shape optimization. Shape optimization is a technology where design optimization algorithms are coupled with geometry/shape deformation tools and engineering analysis codes such as computational fluid dynamics and structural analysis. The optimization algorit ...

  6. Non-Fouling Ultrafiltration Membranes

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Ultrafiltration membranes offer great potential for compact, low cost clean-up of Navy surface ship graywater and blackwater. A major limitation of these ultrafiltration membranes is significant loss in flux with time associated with membrane fouling from proteins, polysaccharides, and other waste products. Backflushing can only be used to a limited extent. Chemical treatments are undesirous si ...

  7. Small Craft Vision Enhancement/Situation Awareness System

    SBC: AZIMUTH, INC            Topic: N/A

    Small military maritime craft are responsible for the expedient delivery of personnel to an area(s) that will allow for the successful accomplishment of mission objectives. Often these craft are required to operate in littoral (shoreline) areas under various extreme conditions. It is therefore vital that an All-Weather Vision Enhancement / Situation Awareness System be designed and developed tha ...
