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. Hostile Fire Indicator for Remotely Piloted Aircraft

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF121102

    ABSTRACT:Solid State Scientific Corporation (SSSC) is pleased to propose the development and demonstration of a wide area (WA) multi-threat hostile fire indication (HFI) system for remotely-piloted aircraft (RPA).The HFI system consists of a comparatively wide field of view sensor that employs miniature optics and a custom short-wave infrared (SWIR) camera based on a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS ...

  2. GMTI Data Exploitation For SWAP Limited Radar Systems

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF131139

    ABSTRACT:Size, weight, and power (SWaP) limitations restrict the ability of airborne radar systems to detect low-observable moving targets such as dismounts and slow vehicles in strong clutter.Solid State Scientific Corporation has developed a unique ground moving target indication signal processing algorithm which is ideal for SWaP limited systems due to its computational efficiency and its sensi ...

  3. A Novel, Low Cost and Handheld Microwave Sensor for the Detection and Evaluation of Incipient Composite Heat Damage

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N131013

    Due to their high specific strength and light weight properties, polymer matrix composites (PMCs) are increasingly used in a wide variety of military and civilian aircrafts. The mechanical strength of PMCs can be dramatically compromised when such materials are exposed to various heat sources during operation and maintenance. It has been shown that PMCs can lose up to 80% of their mechanical stren ...

  4. CROSSED FIELD AMPLIFIER TRANSMITTER

    SBC: H6 Systems Inc.            Topic: N122127

    H6 Systems proposes building a transmitter based on a modified coupled cavity TWT from CPI to increase coverage of MIL-STD-464C. Present testing methods are lacking in the coverage of power for frequencies from 3.0 3.3 GHz. The new transmitter will allow testing at both peak and average powers and will fill requirements for fields shipboard not in the main beam.

  5. High Performance Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) Focal Plane Array (FPA) Sensor for Missile Defense

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA14021

    We propose to bandgap-engineer the antimony-based Group III-V compound semiconductor material system to realize a dualband focal plane array (FPA) made up of stacked multi-barrier Type-II strained layer superlattice (SLS) photodiodes. Two longwave infrared (LWIR) spectral bands will be imaged in alternate frames by using a readout multiplexer that flips the voltage bias across the FPA from frame ...

  6. Active, frequency-selective meta-surfaces for reduced antenna footprint and jamming mitigation

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF131066

    ABSTRACT: Significant cost reductions and system improvements would ensue if multiple transmit and receive antennas could share one RF aperture without performance degradation due to self-interference phenomenon. Effects of radar jamming signals would be also be reduced through the use of a properly designed reflector capable of only reflecting the RF radiation of interest. To enable such improv ...

  7. Imaging Techniques for Passive Atmospheric Turbulence Compensation

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF141179

    ABSTRACT:Solid State Scientific Corporation (SSSC) is pleased to propose a Phase II SBIR program to develop a unique technique for imaging through atmospheric turbulence. The proposed idea combines the use of specially designed hardware and associated algorithms to yield improved performance over current systems. The proposed solution will improve upon one of the traditional techniques for imaging ...

  8. Non-Destructive Inspection (NDI) for Recrystallized Grains in Single Crystal Superalloys

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N132097

    The single-crystal (SC) structure of modern jet engine turbine blades provides excellent resistance to high-temperature creep, allowing tight tolerances to be maintained over the life of the superalloy part. However, the turbine blade geometry includes complicated features that can promote the growth of discrete recrystallized grains that lower the parts creep resistance and may lead to catastroph ...

  9. VLWIR SLS Digital FPA for Hyperspectral Imaging

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: A13AT014

    QmagiQ and MIT-LL will partner to develop a high-performance very longwave infrared digital focal plane array (VLWIR DFPA) suitable for hyperspectral imaging applications. The DFPA will be based on Type-II antimony-based strained layer superlattice (SLS) photodiodes with > 13 micron cutoff, hybridized to a digital readout integrated circuit (DROIC). In Phase I, we investigated the performance of a ...

  10. Electro-Optically Guided Radar Imaging

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A13040

    Herein, PSI proposes to leverage extensive development in the area of optically sampled passive millimeter-wave imaging to develop dual mode active/passive imagers that provide both the intuitive, real-time imagery of a passive imager and the ranging capabilities of an active sensor. To accomplish this task, an optically sampled millimeter-wave receive array is sampled via optical pulsed laser gat ...
