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 ...

  4. Advanced Intelligent Web-Based Options to Acquire and Analyze Aircraft Health and Test Data

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: N08122

    Topic Synopsis: Current aircraft disposition tools are not designed to take advantage of predictive prognostic information that will be available on new systems such as the F-35 PHM system or the proposed Maintenance and Monitoring system for the E-2D Hawkeye. The central challenges in this topic are to (1) develop automated reasoner technologies to distill large volumes of PHM data into actionabl ...

  5. Advanced Materials and Chemistries for Electrochemical Energy Storage Devices

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: OSD08EP2

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of developing advanced battery chemistries that provide batteries operate safely at specific energies higher than 100 Wh/kg, energy densities over 600 Wh/l. The olivine-type phosphate cathodes are attractive. The stable nature of the olivine-type structure having a PO43− polyanion with a strong P–O covalent bond provides not ...

  7. Aerodynamic Characteristics of Missile Fragments Using a Digital Wind Tunnel

    SBC: Flow Parametrics, LLC            Topic: MDA07016

    Lift and drag characteristics of arbitray, irregularly shaped fragments will be computed using a combination of Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations and the Large-Eddy Simulation (LES) method. Cartesian meshes will be generated for the shapes, and accurate lift and drag characteristics will be post-processed using the simulation data bases. Outputs will be in the form of tables that ca ...

  8. An Optically Switched Thyristor as a Thz pulse Source

    SBC: ODIS , Inc.            Topic: AF073004

    Sources and detectors in the range of 300-10,000 GHz pose a unique challenge to implementation as semiconductor devices. Transistor oscillators do not have the bandwidth to generate these frequencies/wavelengths and optical devices do not have energy gaps small enough to provide effective stimulated emission. Intersubband transitions do provide these energies. The quantum cascade structure (QCL) ...

  9. Automated Biological Sample Concentration and Detection System

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A06T022

    ANP Technologies proposes to integrate a commercially available air sample concentrator from ICx MesoSystems with our automated detection instrument that uses the NIDS® multiplexed assays and NIDS® Auto-Reader (AR) device. A trigger device may also be incorporated into the final system, which might better enable the system to serve as a remote monitor of air streams. The proposed effort will b ...

  10. Biologically Inspired Reconfigurable Computer for High-speed Object Avoidance in Small UAVs

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N08079

    For this project, we plan to collaborate with researchers in the neuroscience department at the University of Delaware to develop an FPGA-based embedded computer, inspired in the brains small vertebrates (fish). The mechanisms of object detection and avoidance in fish have been extensively studied by our Delaware collaborators. The midbrain optic tectum is a biological multimodal navigation cont ...
