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. Innovative Low-cost, In-situ Consolidation Head for Complex Geometry Thermoplastic Fiber Placement

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N08135

    Accudyne proposes a SBIR program, endorsed by Sikorsky, Cytec Engineered Materials, and NASA-LaRC, to develop a cost-effective thermoplastic automated tow placement (ATP) process and demonstrate it by fabricating and testing a complex contoured skin (Phase 1) and a CH-53K rotorcraft lower cabin or ramp skin (Phase 2). The process employs in situ consolidation, avoiding the autoclave. The targete ...

  2. Innovative Approaches to the Fabrication of Composite Rotary Wing Main Rotor Blade Spars

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N08026

    This proposal will supply to NAVAIR and to rotorcraft manufacturing companies the emerging solution to their fabrication needs as it relates to the production of Rotor Blade Spars. The process and machine concept developed in Phase I will provide NAVAIR and the rotocraft manufacturing companies an automated solution to spar manufacturing. This will enable: • Low part manufacturing cost • High ...

  3. Generating Autoclave-Level Mechanical Properties with Out-of-Autoclave Thermoplastic Placement of Large Composite Aerospace Structures

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: T702

    Out-of-autoclave thermoplastic tape/tow placement (TP-ATP) is nearing commercialization but suffers a moderate gap in mechanical properties compared with laminates fabricated via thermoset autoclave processing. Out-of-autoclave thermoplastic processing significantly lowers composite aerospace part costs, but the property gap must be closed. This STTR program, endorsed herein by Boeing and Cytec ...

  4. Wideband Filter Networks for Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) Size, Weight, and Power (SWAP) Reduction

    SBC: Active Spectrum, Inc.            Topic: A07086

    We propose a novel, high performance tunable narrowband bandpass preselect filter that is capable of continuously tuning from 400MHz - 3GHz. The proposed filter offers an order of magnitude reduction in SWAP-C, small size (1/2" x 1/2" x 1/4"), low cost and minimal power consumption. The proposed design uses conventional fabrication processes and inexpensive off-the-shelf commercially available com ...

  5. Automated Oil Reblending System

    SBC: Active Spectrum, Inc.            Topic: N08051

    Precise monitoring and maintenance of engine lubricating oils is essential to extend operating life and minimize engine wear. Oil analysis has long been used by the Navy for preventative maintenance of its fleet. However, the manpower requirements for these maintenance programs place a significant burden on personnel. There is demand across all the armed services for the automation of preventative ...

  6. A compact, low cost, in- process welding defects detection system based on thermal plasma emission

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N08178

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the University of Michigan (UM) detail the development of a compact, portable, and low cost in-process weld defects detection system. Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) weld defects monitoring based on plasma emission characteristics; b) use the electron temperature of the plasma as an indicator of the weld quality, c) use multiple plasma ...

  7. A Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS)

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A08075

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the Oklahoma State University (OKState) detail the development of a novel Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS). Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) the use of a small Whispering- Gallery- Mode (WGM) cavity to achieve very long pathlength; and b) the integration of the WGM cavity with the conventional pulsed and continu ...

  8. Automated Biological Sample Concentration and Detection System

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A06T022

    ANP Technologies proposes to integrate a commercially available air sample concentrator from ICx MesoSystems with our automated detection instrument that uses the NIDS® multiplexed assays and NIDS® Auto-Reader (AR) device. A trigger device may also be incorporated into the final system, which might better enable the system to serve as a remote monitor of air streams. The proposed effort will b ...

  9. Isolation of Novel Hyper-Thermophiles for Increased Energy Efficiency in Ethanol Production

    SBC: Athena Biotechnologies, Inc.            Topic: 10b

    Bio-ethanol penetration into the marketplace is limited by its cost, making it non-competitive with petroleum-based fuels. Energy consumed during fermentation and distillation steps accounts for 17% of the total cost. Because fermentation is exothermic, the reactor must be cooled to preserve mesophilic microbial viability. Then, the product must then be heated to vaporize the ethanol for purificat ...

  10. Nano-BiCMOS Night Vision Camera

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A08008

    Night vision capability is one of the most important battlefield advantages of the U.S. military, especially in today’s asymmetric warfare. The Gen III night vision goggles in service today is based on the vacuum tube technology with a semiconductor photo cathode, resulting in limitations on view angle, size, manufacturing cost and device operating lifetime. The requirement of special training i ...
