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 Novel, High Precision, X-ray 3D Scanner for Non-Line-of-Sight Point Cloud Generation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF161013

    ABSTRACT: Casting parts with intricate internal surfaces are routinely used in many gun systems. It is important to inspect those casting parts to ensure the inner structures comply with the original design during the first article testing and production lot certification. Currently, inspections of inner surfaces are often done with borescopes, which is time consuming, labor intensive, and costly. ...

  3. Advanced Spectrally Selective Materials for Obscurant Applications

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: A13AT016

    Plasmonic metamaterials, composed of patterned metallic and dielectrics, can be engineered to have interesting optical properties that are attractive for a range of advanced obscurant applications. These particles are typically fabricated on planar surfaces, since patterning planar surfaces to achieve the desired effects is relatively straightforward.However, for planar geometries the particles op ...

  4. Efficient Arrays for Generating Light Emission (EAGLE)

    SBC: Chip Design Systems            Topic: AF16AT22

    With today's IRLED devices, >99.4% of input electrical power is converted into parasitic/waste heat. Moreover, as the local temperatures of the pixels increase due to the generated heat, IRLED optical efficiency is further reduced. Overall this severely ...

  5. Functional Dataflow Programming Toolchain for Portable Parallel Code

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB151004

    Modern computer systems often incorporate multiple computational devices such as conventional processors, graphics processing units (GPUs), specialized accelerators, and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). Programmers are able to exploit these new architectures for improved performance and reduced power consumption, but at the cost of increased programing complexity. Further complicating matte ...

  7. Multi-material Additive Manufacturing of RF Electronics

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A16006

    To reduce size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-c) military platforms have been evolving towards a more integrated design approach that efficiently utilizes all available space.To accommodate limited space constraints many commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems will need to be replaced by custom designed and fabricated components.For the case of radiofrequency (RF) electronic systems this will requi ...

  8. Multimodal Non- destructive Evaluation of Internal Surfaces of Holes in Steel Structures

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A16012

    A bore evacuator is generally used in gun barrel of armored fighting vehicles to help prevent poisonous propellant gases from venting back into the fighting compartment. It consists of a ring of holes drilled into the barrel, surrounded by a cylindrical pressure reservoir. Under typical operating conditions, pitting corrosions and stress corrosion cracks can form in the inner walls of those drille ...

  9. Optical Materials Processing for High Linearity Electro-optic Modulators

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: AF151133

    Modulation linearity and efficiency, in addition to bandwidth, are important parameters characterizing a modulator. In general, improving modulation efficiency is highly desirable, as long as bandwidth is maintained, since higher modulation efficiency allows lower RF signal to impose equivalent change in the optical beam; better linearity of modulation reduces spurs and improves the fidelity of op ...

  10. Phantom Head for Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Current Model Validation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF151026

    Cognitive skills/capabilities are important for the military personnel to fulfill tasksand to ensure mission efficiency and success. In the past decade, there are abundant researches suggesting that non-invasive brain stimulation via transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) holds great promise to enhance a soldier's cognitive performances. To take full advantage of such a brain stimulation t ...
