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. Marking System for Durable Labeling of Munitions

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A18077

    Hand grenades require highly legible, long-lived identification markings that are resistant to wear and field chemicals. Creating such markings on grenades is challenging, especially when their surfaces are rounded and made of chemically resistant plastics. Creare proposes to develop an additive marking process capable of producing robust color markings on curved plastic surfaces with high resolut ...

  2. Proactive Radar Resource Management with Adaptive Arrays

    SBC: Spear Research, LLC            Topic: A18120

    Today, the Army utilizes multiple radar systems with overlapping areas of responsibility to provide RF sensing for battlefield Air Surveillance (AS), Air Defense (AD), Counterfire Target Acquisition (CTA), and other missions. While each mission has unique challenges and requirements, enhancements in sensor hardware technology, including digital beamforming (DBF) and arbitrary waveform generation, ...

  3. Strain Sensor for Real-Time Measurement in Parachute Canopies

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A17077

    The Army requires a capability for real-time, dynamic strain measurement in parachute canopies during flight. This capability will fill two critical needs. The first is to provide quantitative data to validate computational models and inform canopy design efforts. The second is to provide real-time feedback to automated flight controllers that guide unmanned payloads to a landing target. Existing ...

  4. Lightweight Thin-film Solar Cell with Periodic Optical Nanostructure

    SBC: Amberwave, Inc.            Topic: A17074

    AmberWave, Inc. has developed a method to bond an ultra-thin (18 micron) monocrystalline Si layer to a conductive and fracture-resistant supporting layer such as a thin steel alloy foil. With this UTSi (Ultra-Thin Si) technology we have integrated front and rear cell processes based on the world-record PERL (Passivated Emitter Rear Locally diffused) silicon solar cell design, and have demonstrated ...

  5. Cyclone Collection system for Radionuclide Detection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA182006

    The detection of radionuclide aerosols is a critical indicator of a nuclear detonation. Existing sensors as part of the International Monitoring System operate in a batch process and typically have a 48 to 72 hour delay between aerosol sample collection and measurement activities due to limits of instrument sensitivity. The continuous, instantaneous measurements of atmospheric aerosol radiation le ...

  6. Practical, High-Performance Recuperators for UAS Turbogenerators

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A17001

    Power and propulsion systems for small unmanned aerial systems (UASs) face increasing demands for high efficiency, high power density, and reliability. Small gas turbines offer high power density and excellent reliability but are typically less efficient than internal combustion engines. We propose to develop advanced heat exchanger technology that can be used to produce recuperators that will inc ...

  7. Near-Real-Time Integration of Soil State Information

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A17130

    The Army requires the development of models for improving the state-of-the-art understanding of soil state characteristics in regions with varying observational input datasets.Currently, weather-scale remote sensing, mesoscale standoff sensing, and point-scale in situ sensing provide approximate measurements of near-surface soil moisture at different scales and extents of coverage.In addition, soi ...

  8. Crowd-Sourced Environmental Sensing and Terrain Analysis Using Mobile Devices

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A16047

    The objective of this project is to improve situational awareness of weather impacted terrain conditions in the battlespace.Our technical approach exploits crowd-sourced data available from existing sensors on mobile devices.Creare is developing these capabilities within the Crowd-Sourced Terrain Analysis for Geospatial Enterprise (CSTAGE) software framework.CSTAGE provides capabilities for measur ...

  9. Metamorphic Buffer Layer Growth for Bulk InAs(x)Sb(1-x) LWIR Detectors

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: A16AT009

    Bulk InAs(x)Sb(1-x) is an infrared detector material that promises higher quantum efficiency than antimony-based superlattices in the longwave infrared (LWIR).This is due to the longer diffusion length of minority carrier holes in the bulk than in superlattices where they are localized.No native substrate exists for lattice-matched growth of InAs(x)Sb(1-x) material with LWIR bandgaps.So a key chal ...

  10. Low-Cost Sensing Array for Infrasound

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA172001

    Infrasound and seismic measurements are used by DTRA and the DoD for nuclear test monitoring, terrorist blast forensics, battle damage assessment, and environmental monitoring. However, these long wavelength physical signals are typically recorded through single-point sensors or sparse low density arrays. As a result, the critical signals of interest are often corrupted or masked by noise or inter ...
