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. 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 ...

  4. Carbon Foam Composite Material Systems for Ship EM Shielding

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

    "The Navy is planning to integrate composite structures into the new CV(X) and DD(X) ship class designs. The structures and components will provide an inherent weight savings and are more corrosion-resistant than current steel structures. Currently,composite structures do not provide the same electromagnetic (EM) shielding effectiveness without being designed into the structure as steel or aluminu ...

  5. Carbon Foam Innovative Processing

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

    "The Missile Defense Agency has a need for innovative processes that will improve manufacturing capabilities, product quality and reliability, reduce unit costs and enhance manufacturing yields and subsystems and component performance. Carbon foam hasdemonstrated numerous properties that make it a candidate material for several MDA-sponsored programs including: space-based mirrors, lightweight s ...

  6. Carbon Foam-Based Lightweight Mirrors

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

    "Several current and upcoming space-based telescope and laser beam director designs, such as the Next-Generation Space Telescope and the Space-Based Laser, call for large aperture optical components, often tens of meters in diameter. Using conventionalmirror/director technologies, the cost and weight of these systems would be prohibitive. In addition, conventional materials, such as glass, offer ...

  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. Development of a Liner-less Storage Tank for the Space Based Laser System

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

    "Innovative materials and manufacturing processes are required to meet the performance and cost objectives of current space-based NMD and TMD system programs. One example is the use of polymer matrix composites for the reactant storage tanks aboard theLaser Payload Element (LPE) of the Space Based Laser (SBL) satellite. Currently evolving designs include aluminum clad polymer matrix composite ta ...
