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. Advanced Carbon Nanotube Flywheel for Pulsed Power Applications

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N152118

    The advancement of systems requiring high power (megawatt level) in a short amount of time (seconds to minutes) is increasing, and there is currently no reliable energy storage and release system to complement these technologies on the Navys ships. Traditional flywheels are heavy with low tip speeds and often have to be built in place. Creare proposes an advanced carbon nanotube (CNT) flywheel for ...

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N152113

    Unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) threats in a harbor environment present a complex, and in certain ways contradictory, set of detection and classification issues. The threats may come in the form of highly aggressive behaviors with associated kinematics and classification signatures, as well as passive loitering with different kinematics and classification opportunities. One obvious modality to c ...

  3. Diver Communication System Upgrade

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N152110

    Voice communication with military divers is challenged by their extreme operating environment and limited by inadequate performance from their legacy communications equipment. Bottomside, the divers are subject to extreme pressures, mixed breathing gases, and high ambient noise. Clean pickup and delivery of voice would be challenging under these conditions even with ideal communications equipment. ...

  4. Flight Deck Lighting Addressable Smart Control Modules

    SBC: C3I, Inc            Topic: N152086

    The LED Lighting Fixture Control Module (LFCM) will be the next generation of LED lighting control capability replacing the current C3I LED Flex Driver Control Module (LFDM). C3Is Configurable Distributed LED Driver (CD-LD) technology will meet the LFCM requirements, providing performance enhancements and resulting in significantly reduced installation, operating, maintenance, and configuration co ...

  5. STTR Phase I: Plasmonic Carbon dioxide to fuel photocatalysis by solar energy

    SBC: Solargasoline LLC            Topic: MN

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is in the development of a transformative carbon dioxide sequestration technology that can convert carbon dioxide and water directly into gasoline fuels with unprecedented efficiency, with sunlight as the only energy input. The technology is based on earth abundant metals as photo-catalysts, is environment- friendly, and potentially can be us ...

  6. E3 Mitigation for Interceptor Thermal Protection Systems

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA15020

    Mentis Sciences and San Diego Composites have developed composite materials that reduce system weight and sustain more aero-thermally stressing environments. This technology has been validated in rain erosion tests, has undergone preliminary aerothermal evaluation, and is currently undergoing characterization to develop B-Basis material allowables. This will be accomplished by designing and demons ...

  7. A New Cryocooler for MgB2 Superconducting Systems in Turboelectric Aircraft

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A103

    Turboelectric aircraft with gas turbines driving electric generators connected to electric propulsion motors have the potential to transform the aircraft design space by decoupling power generation from propulsion. Resulting aircraft designs such as blended-wing bodies with distributed propulsion can provide the large reductions in emissions, fuel burn, and noise required to make air transportati ...

  8. CloudTurbine: Streaming Data via Cloud File Sharing

    SBC: Cycronix            Topic: A201

    We propose a novel technology to leverage rapidly evolving cloud based infrastructure to improve time constrained situational awareness for real-time decision making. Our "CloudTurbine" innovation eliminates the distinction between files and streams. Streaming and static data have long been considered separately. Whereas streaming data protocols continue to fragment, a great unification of appr ...

  9. Antimony-Based Focal Plane Arrays for Shortwave-Infrared to Visible Applications

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: S103

    We propose to develop antimony-based focal plane arrays (FPAs) for NASA's imaging and spectroscopy applications in the spectral band from visible to shortwave-infrared (SWIR), viz. wavelengths from 0.5 - 2.5 microns. We will leverage recent breakthroughs in the performance of midwave and longwave infrared FPAs based on the InAs/GaSb/AlSb material system in which QmagiQ has played a key part. In th ...

  10. A High Efficiency 30 K Cryocooler with Low-Temperature Heat Sink

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S110

    Future NASA planetary science missions have very limited access to solar power and therefore reducing the cryocooling system power input is even more critical than for earth-orbiting satellites. On this program, Creare proposes to develop and demonstrate an innovative Stirling cryocooler that efficiently produces refrigeration at 30 K and rejects heat at about 150 K. A key component of the propo ...
