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. Electronically Shunted Smart Material Damper Packages for Extreme Environments

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACX proposes an alternate approach to damping for extreme environments, which uses an electrically shunted, surface mounted, smart material. This shunting approach has been most widely used in less extreme environments in conjunction with piezoceramic materials. The smart material is bonded to the surface of the target structure, in this case a part inside an aircraft engine. Stress on the part ...

  2. Hybrid Vibration Control Actuator Systems

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Active Control eXperts, (ACX) Inc. proposes to design, fabricate, and demonstrate a novel hybrid vibration ccntrol actuator system capable of very precise, controllable motion. This system will combine the advantages of a capacitive actuator with feedback control capability. This system will possess the force and stroke characteristics of a small hydraulic device and the bandwidth of electric moto ...

  3. Smart, Adaptive Packages for Vibration Suppression

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In many structures with vibration problems, the nature of the problem is uncertain, or varies over time. Thus it is not possible 'a priori to design a linear, time-invariant, (LTI) feedback control law which is guaranteed to meet performance, or possibly even stability requirements over the entire operating range. These applications require an intelligent control system which can adapt to the ch ...

  4. Jam Resistant GPS Reception

    SBC: ADCOM SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY,INC.            Topic: N/A

    A unique approach is proposed for the effective rejection of cochannel, but otherwise arbitrary, jamming and other interference in GPS reception. The approach is based on a method of processing a multiplicity of signals sharing the same time-frequency and polarization space, in such a way as to favor a bona fide GPS signal over the others present (jamming, spoofing, multipath, atmospherics or oth ...

  6. HIGH TEMPERATURE INTEGRATED CAPACITORS

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Next generation power electronic systems for military aircraft will require capacitors with reliable performance at temperatures from -55 up to 300 degrees C and beyond for filters, power converters and other control circuitry. Thin film integrated passive devices with lower dissipation and electrical leakage will also be needed, especially at high frequencies. Thin films have inherently high bre ...

  7. Vandium Precursors for Semi-Insulating SiC Epilayers

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Silicon carbide (SiC) is an ideal semiconductor material for high temperature, high frequency, and high power electronic devices. A SiC technology analogous to silicon - on -insulator (SOI) will be feasible if a suitable dopant precursor and epitaxial growth technique to produce semi-insulating SiC can be developed. Vanadium is an attractive dopant for the formation of semi-insulating SiC. In Phas ...

  8. Radiation hard, nonvolatile, NRDO memory elements

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Metal-ferroelectric-semiconductor field effect transistors (MFS-FETs) have a can be used as nonvolatile memory devices. The primary ferroelectric materials for these devices are perovskite oxides such as lead zirconium titanate (PZT) and strontium bismuth tantalate (SBT). These materials contain highly mobile elements (Pb and Bi) that can interact with silicon at process temperatures and lead to a ...

  9. LOW DEFECT DENSITY GaN PHOTODIODE

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    GaN-based p-i-n photodiodes are in ideal choice for the Air Force's UV radiation measurements needs since these solid-state detectors are compact, light, and have low power consumption. However, current GaN photodiodes have much larger dark currents than expected. This Phase I program seeks to dramatically improve the current state of GaN photodiodes by employing low dislocation density epitaxia ...
