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. Low Voltage Power Sources for Long-Life Electronics

    SBC: TALOSTECH LLC            Topic: SB163009

    There is a critical need for DoD to develop power sources that will increase the mission lifetime for unattended sensors and sensor radio networks. In order to take advantage of recent advances in extremely low power subthreshold circuits to greatly exte...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Functional Dataflow Programming Toolchain for Portable Parallel Code

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB151004

    A new class of high-performance, low-SWaP computational devices is emerging based on increasingly diverse architectures. This diversity is improving performance, but comes at the cost of increased programming complexity. Each architecture requires variances in programming environment and model, typically distinguished by the type of parallelism supported by the hardware, limiting software portabil ...

  4. Many-Core Acceleration of Common Graph Programming Frameworks

    SBC: Sarah Murphy            Topic: SB152004

    We propose creating a new company to deliver accelerated graph-based analytics for modern manycore systems. The work combines advanced multithreading and work-moving typical of HPC but targeted at cloud environments with insight into the structure of the graph to improve spatial locality and an attribute-first query system to dramatically reduce the work required to solve practical graph problems ...

  5. Many-Core Acceleration of Common Graph Programming Frameworks

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB152004

    Graph analytics is a key component in identifying emerging trends and threats in many real-world applications. Large-scale graph analytics frameworks provide a convenient and highly scalable platform for developing algorithms to analyze large datasets. Although conceptually scalable, these techniques exhibit poor performance on modern computational hardware. Another model of graph computation has ...

  6. Silicon Receiver for Millimeter Wave Distributed Aperture Imager with Optical Upconversion

    SBC: PHASE SENSITIVE INNOVATIONS            Topic: SB113003

    In this SBIR effort we will design (Phase I) and demonstrate (Phase II) an integrated silicon electronic-photonic upconversion receiver that when used with our photonic backend will allow for a highly sensitive, real-time, and economical millimeter wave (mmW) imaging system. The development of this chip leverages recent progress in CMOS and SiGe HBT high speed analog circuit design and integrates ...

  7. Silicon Receiver for Millimeter Wave Distributed Aperture Imager with Optical Upconversion

    SBC: PHASE SENSITIVE INNOVATIONS            Topic: SB113003

    In this Phase II SBIR effort we will dramatically reduce the size, weight, and power requirements of a passive millimeter wave imaging system based on optical upconversion. To this end, we will integrate custom silicon-germanium low noise amplifiers that have been designed to efficiently couple with our high performance lithium niobate upconversion modules. In Phase I we analyzed the design requ ...

  8. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    In the current SBIR program, AlphaSense aimed at developing a novel, handheld, non-destructive sensor to evaluate the integrity of Naval Advanced Amorphous Coatings (NAAC) in real time. In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using the cavity perturbation technique to detect different types of defects present in thermal-sprayed testing coupons. Specifically, we optimized the sensor probe des ...

  9. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    Under the DARPA sponsored Naval Advanced Amorphous Coating (NAAC) program, a novel, thermal sprayed amorphous metal coating has been developed. Such a coating has demonstrated superior mechanical and corrosion resistance properties. Although the coating is designed to be life-of-ship, the application and operational conditions may compromise the integrity of the coating. For example, the applicati ...

  10. GPU-Based High-Performance Computing for Accelerated Design and Analysis

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB082024

    Commodity graphics processing units (GPUs) offer tremendous computational throughput for relatively little cost. They have been shown to outperform microprocessors in the important metrics of FLOPS/dollar, FLOPS/Watt, and FLOPS/unit space and have already been applied to a wide range of numerically intense problems. In Phase I of this project, we demonstrated their potential to enhance complex C ...
