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 Hybrid Thermoelectric-Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Energy Conversion for High Efficiency Portable Power

    SBC: Atrex Energy, Inc.            Topic: OSD08EP4

    The proposal would provide the design and basic product development work to augment the power generation efficiency of fuel cells developed by Acumentrics Corp. by converting waste heat into electricity by highly efficient thermoelectric (TE) power generation. Three paths will be explored in Phase I to add a TE generator to the SOFC. The first will explore the use of a material that is used in co ...

  2. Marine Portable Power Unit

    SBC: Atrex Energy, Inc.            Topic: N06105

    A conceptual design of a battery charging station with UPS back-up capability was completed under contract M67854-C-6509. The resulting system can charge up to twelve BB-2590 batteries at the maximum charging current (to minimize charging time) and provide 1000 Watts of back-up power (both AC and DC outputs are provided) for at least one hour. Individual batteries can be hot-swapped for field us ...

  3. Ultra-Dense Three-Dimensional Electronics for Space

    SBC: R3LOGIC, INC.            Topic: AF073099

    R3Logic, Inc., in collaboration with Tezzaron Semiconductor will develop a rad-hard multi-core embedded processor / memory system that will be fabricated in a multi-layer 3-D integrated circuit. Phase I will focus on the system design. We will complete the RTL to GDSII synthesis of the processor and system components. The stack will incorporate Tezzaron’s patented 3-D Octopus memory, which has b ...

  4. Power Source Materials & Subcomponents Manufacturing Improvements

    SBC: ADVANCED MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: OSD05MT2

    Manufacturers of military batteries often need raw materials that may have long lead times, limited production and/or high costs. During Phase I of this project, Advanced Membrane Systems (AMS) made some modifications and improvements to one of its products (a lithium ion battery separator), and made it suitable for Li/SO2 cell applications. Phase II of this proposal is for qualification of batter ...

  5. Forecasting IR Satellite Imagery for Adaptive Sensor Tasking

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: MDA07033

    Accurate forecasts of infrared satellite imagery are needed to optimize tasking of valuable and limited space borne surveillance assets. Atmospheric constituents such as clouds, aerosols, and water vapor can negatively impact the ability of IR surveillance systems to monitor activities on the ground. Due to their chaotic nature, atmospheric impacts are particularly severe for applications that r ...

  6. An Ensemble Kalman Filtering Approach for Regional Ocean Data Assimilation

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N06099

    Current and future operational needs of the Navy require the capability to combine very large and disparate datasets with dynamical ocean numerical models to produce, in real time, accurate analyses and forecasts together with respective uncertainty estimates for any littoral region of the globe. We propose to implement a highly scalable, portable and efficient ocean data assimilation system base ...

  7. Variable Thrust Hybrid Propulsion for Mission Flexibility

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: OSD08PR3

    A novel type of high burning rate hybrid rocket fuel is an enabling technology for a wide range of DoD rocket propulsion applications. This fuel system has been demonstrated to provide burn rate at least four times that of conventional polymers, while retaining the physical properties and specific impulse capability of HTPB based fuels. The result is a high density impulse capability utilizing s ...

  8. Utilizing Optical Defocusing and Computational Imaging for Laser Intensity Reduction at CCD Focal Planes

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A08064

    Devising a means to reduce the fluence at the image sensor by a factor of 100 would eliminate the threat from all but the largest, cumbersome sources. We propose that the needed fluence reduction can be achieved by operating the existing imager at a strongly defocused setting, and applying hardware-accelerated existing state-of-the-art image deblurring algorithms to its data stream. Several exist ...

  9. Particle Sampling System Designed to Simulate Aging of Aircraft Exhaust Plumes

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: AF06302

    ARI is developing an aircraft exhaust sampling system that transitions condensable species to the condensed phase in a manner that mimics what happens when the exhaust is emitted into the atmosphere. Standard engine-exit plane measurements are not suitable for these volatile particles because they form downstream of the aircraft as the exhaust plume mixes with ambient air and cools. Downstream mea ...

  10. Variable Remapping of Airborne Imagery

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N07018

    Cooperative targeting technologies enable F18 strike aircraft and tactical UASs (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) to work together to provide close air support, particularly in close-quarters urban combat. VRAI (“Variable Remapping of Airborne Imagery”) ties together these assets more effectively, speeding-up the visual cueing and confirmation bottleneck, insuring 1st-pass success. VRAI digitally ...
