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. 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 ...

  2. Advanced Technologies for Reducing Decompression Obligation and Risk

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: SB131004

    Despite over 100 years of research, decompression sickness (DCS) remains the mission-limiting factor in the design and execution of combat diving operations.Divers may spend over an hour decompressing after spending as little as ten minutes at the target depth.While decompressing, divers are limited in vertical mobility, making then susceptible to detection and threatening their survivability.This ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. AUTONOMOUS DETECTION OF NEAR-SURFACE MARINE MAMMALS USING INTEGRATED ACTIVE SONAR AND ABOVE-WATER SENSORS

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: SB162015

    Scientific Solutions, Inc. (SSI), teamed with BAE Systems and Southall Environmental Associates, Inc. (SEA), proposes to investigate the feasibility of using hull-mounted active sonar integrated with above-water sensors, specifically radar and EOIR, to autonomously indentify and track marine mammals from transiting surface ships at ranges out to and beyond 1,000 yards. Active sonar, radar, and EO ...

  5. 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...

  6. Fast Vacuum Isolation Valve for Debris Mitigation

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA143007

    Nuclear weapons effects (NWE) testing and other experiments conducted with plasma radiation sources require that test articles be exposed to radiation but protected from fast moving debris generated by a high power source event. Solid barriers or membranes are unacceptable because they attenuate the desired radiation, and physical shutters of reasonable size and complexity have difficulty reaching ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. A Low-Cost, Miniaturized Control System for Autonomous Flight

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: SB151006

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are being used extensively by the military for operations in theatre, but they are largely remotely piloted.In particular, for smaller UAVs, added autonomy would make them much more useful.Current FAA regulations make commercial operation of UAVs very difficult and expensive, and a prerequisite for changing the status quo would be added autonomy.The development of s ...

  9. Conformal, Random Access Beam Steering for Broadband Systems

    SBC: ODHNER HOLOGRAPHICS            Topic: SB153005

    A large aperture achromatic holographic Risley prism equivalent system is proposed which provides conformal and fast scanning using ultra-light weight piezoelectric motors to achieve a large scan angle.The system is very efficient, simple and easily replicated.The central null issue normally associated with Risley prisms is eliminated with a 3rd weak achromatic displacement grating between the out ...

  10. 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 ...
