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

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: T702

    While in the 1970's and 1980's, composites were adopted for aerospace structure for increased performance and weight savings, the 1990's and 2000's witnessed the attention towards cost-effective fabrication. All thermoset processes that utilize such machines rely on autoclaves to consolidate the laminates, at significant acquisition and operational expense. Autoclaves to consolidate wings are hu ...

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

    SBC: Active Spectrum, Inc.            Topic: A07086

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of mass producing robust miniaturized, tunable narrowband preselect filters in the 500-2000 MHz bands for fielded JTRS platforms. In the 500 MHz – 2000 MHz frequency bands, we proposed a tunable 2-pole narrowband (30 MHz) preselect filter. Active Spectrum, Inc.’s filters represent a proven, significant improvement over the state ...

  4. Tunable Filters for the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS)

    SBC: Active Spectrum, Inc.            Topic: AF073065

    The proposal describes a miniaturized tunable filter technology for wideband tuning in the 500 MHz to 3 GHz bands. The filters use a novel actuator to achieve a combination of wide tuning range and high-Q of the resonant elements. The filter technology can be integrated into a small surface mount package, as described in the proposal. The technology is a major step for reducing the SWAP of front- ...

  5. Photovoltaic Cells for Very High Altitude Very Long Endurance Solar Aircraft

    SBC: 4POWER LLC            Topic: SB072043

    This proposed Phase II program will deliver a lightweight triple-junction solar cell that eliminates the current-matching bottleneck of current state-of-the-art InGaP/GaAs/Ge cells on Ge. This will be achieved by constructing a triple junction structure on the lattice constant of SiGe, allowing the integration of semiconductors with bandgaps that are optimized for the best possible triple-junctio ...

  9. A New Approach to Diamond-Based High Heat Load Monochromators

    SBC: APPLIED DIAMOND, INC.            Topic: 06a

    Several hundred beam lines are used around the world at today¿s third-generation synchrotron facilities. These facilities must deal with monochromator-based performance problems due to high heat load. Many have resorted to the use of costly, complicated, high maintenance cryogenic cooling of silicon crystals. Single crystal diamond monochromators present an advantage over the silicon crystals ...

  10. Developing operational capability of AWiFS for tillage monitoring

    SBC: APPLIED GEOSOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: N/A

    Agricultural row crops occupy over 200 m acres of land in the US. Decisions regarding the implementation of tillage practices in these agricultural areas have a significant effect on other environmental outcomes, including soil erosion, water quality, and carbon sequestration. In addition, the effects of tillage practices can vary due to soil type and topographic conditions. There is currently no ...
