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. A Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS)

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A08075

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the Oklahoma State University (OKState) detail the development of a novel Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS). Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) the use of a small Whispering- Gallery- Mode (WGM) cavity to achieve very long pathlength; and b) the integration of the WGM cavity with the conventional pulsed and continu ...

  2. A Compact Deployable Micro Immersive Display Component

    SBC: XIMAX Technologies Corporation Ltd            Topic: AF073111

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is to develop a compact deployable micro immersive display component for augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) based simulation, training, exercises or mission rehearsal applications. The proposed display component is an eye protection goggle type wearable high resolution stereo display. With head tracking and registration, it enabl ...

  3. A Compact Membrane Reactor Methanol Reformer

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: A07T011

    Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) fuel cells require a relatively pure, concentrated hydrogen stream, with very low levels of carbon monoxide (CO) in order to prevent poisoning of the fuel cell anode catalyst. In addition, removing inerts and impurities (such as CO2) from the hydrogen feed to the fuel cell increases a fuel cell’s electrical conversion efficiency. TDA Research, Inc. (TDA), in ...

  4. A compact, low cost, in- process welding defects detection system based on thermal plasma emission

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N08178

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the University of Michigan (UM) detail the development of a compact, portable, and low cost in-process weld defects detection system. Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) weld defects monitoring based on plasma emission characteristics; b) use the electron temperature of the plasma as an indicator of the weld quality, c) use multiple plasma ...

  5. A fast response, open flow, integrating nephelometer for fine scale measurements of aerosol and cloud particles

    SBC: Droplet Measurement Technologies, LLC            Topic: N08190

    An integrating nephelometer is proposed that can be deployed on a variety of platforms including powered aircraft and towed vehicles. The design allows air to pass freely through the sample cell with no restrictions. A sampling rate of up to 100 hz will allow for aerosol flux measurements. The light scattering coefficient will be measured at multiple wavelengths to provide angstrom coefficien ...

  6. A MEMS Pulsed Injection Electrostatic Atomizer for Small Engines

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: A08T012

    The Army needs energy dense, portable power generation and propulsion units. In order to reduce the consumables and simplify logistics, very small engines (defined as a power rating of less than 5 hP) need to be fueled with readily available logistic fuels, such as JP-8 and diesel. Unfortunately, these fuels are extremely difficult to vaporize and burn, which has hindered their use in spark igni ...

  7. A Novel Approach to Impregnating Structural Resin into Carbon Nanotube (CNT) Assemblies to Yield Ultrahigh-Loaded Polymer Nanocomposites


    The primary objective of this program is the investigation of new approaches to achieve well-dispersed ultrahigh loading of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in structural resins for advanced composites. “Well-dispersed” means CNTs that are optimally dispersed for achieving desired properties like strength, modulus, toughness, and thermal conductivity, rather than uniformly dispersed CNTs. Phase I will ...

  8. A Novel Test Method for Measuring Interlaminar Tensile Strength of Ceramic Matrix Composites at High Temperature


    The use of ceramic matrix composite (CMC) materials in aero-engine hot-section components has grown substantially over recent decades. Attributes that make these materials attractive to aero-engine designers include their lower specific weight, higher creep resistance, higher thermoshock resistance and higher specific strength over a large temperature range in comparison to superalloys and greate ...

  9. A Wireless Intra-Soldier Data Communication System

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: A08095

    Providing weapon sight imagery along with other important data to mounted/dismounted soldiers via a Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) will improve soldier situational awareness (SA) and ultimately increase survivability. Currently the data interface between the HMD and the weapon sight system is achieved with a cable and connectors that: restrict movement, contribute significant carrying weight, is a ...

  10. Adaptive Metadata Integrity Assurance

    SBC: Distributed Infinity Inc            Topic: AF071068

    Information Dominance is the key metric in today’s battlefield. Reliance on data and management of data and the accuracy and integrity of that data are paramount to mission success. Metadata enables solutions to many problems of integrity of data. As the data becomes more distributed, virtual, and ubiquitous, current methods of centralized metadata and version control are not responsive to mi ...
