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. 128x128 Ultra-High Density Optical Interconnect

    SBC: Xinetics, Inc.            Topic: S303

    Future NASA programs like Tertiary Planet Finder (TPF) require high-density deformable mirrors with up to 16,000 actuators to enable direct imaging of planets around distant stars. Xinetics has been developing high-density module actuator arrays that will enable deformable mirrors to be fabricated with array sizes up to 128 by 128. These monolithic actuator arrays have eliminated the need for disc ...

  2. A Coded Alternating Micromachined Retroreflector Array (CAMERA)


    RSI will develop a technology to improve fire fighter visibility and enable tracking of position/identity. The Coded Alternating Micromachined Retroreflector Array (CAMERA) will use RSI's microscale retroreflectors, a near-infrared (IR) coating and near-IR sources pulsing on alternating video frames to encode fire fighter identities, and a near-IR video camera. These grain-of-sand-sized markers wo ...

  3. A Compact Borazane Hydrogen Generator for a Soldier Fuel Cell Power System

    SBC: PROTONEX TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: A05034

    Lightweight and compact power sources are a critical need to a broad range of defense, homeland security and communication applications. Proton exchange membrane (PEM) hydrogen/air fuel cells coupled with chemical hydride fuels such as borazane which are gravimetrically high in extractable hydrogen content can provide quiet, lightweight solutions to the escalating energy demands of the modern sol ...

  4. A Completely Wireless Multi-channel EMG System

    SBC: Delsys, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose the development of a completely wireless, "smart" surface electromyographic (EMG) system. The multi-channel digital system will provide reliable, accurate, and noninvasive monitoring of the neuromuscular system without encumbering the user with wires or body-worn hardware. The innovation is a significant departure from current state-of-the-art syste ...

  5. A Fast, High Luminosity Scintillator for PET

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a nuclear imaging modality that makes use of a range of positron-emitting tracers to provide images that reflect different parameters relevant to tumor biology. Tumor cells generally differ from normal cells in many respects, including rates of glucose utilization, proliferation and protein synthesis. PET tracers such as ...

  6. A Fiber Optic Multipass Raman Probe and Instrumentation for Monitoring Flammable Gases in High Level Waste Tanks

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: 06

    79578S The Department of Energy (DOE) has 280 underground tanks used to process and store over 90 million gallons of high-level radioactive chemical waste. The conditions in the tanks are conducive to the formation of flammable gases such as hydrogen, ammonia, and methane, as well as fire accelerants (oxidizers) such as nitrous oxide. An accumulation of these flammable gases above their lower f ...

  7. A High Fidelity Digital Interference Generator (DIG) with an Electromagnetic Wavefront Generator (EWG)

    SBC: Bedford Signals Corporation            Topic: AF04279

    The Air Force is looking to develop an open-air jamming and interference test capability, that does not require jamming clearance from the FAA. The system must be able to provide realistic system level tests for GPS receivers, antennas, and amplifiers. Bedford Signals proposes the advanced development of innovative technologies to enable a Completely Integrated Jamming Test System (CIJTS): an Elec ...

  8. A High Resolution Airborne Atmospheric Boundary Layer and Surface Wind Field Imager for the NOAA WP-3D Aircraft

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 8316

    High resolution, continuous monitoring of the lower boundary layer wind field and ocean surface wind field within tropical cyclones is required to improve intensity forecasting. This proposed Phase I effort will focus on realizing an operational airborne imaging Doppler radar capable of providing these winds with 15-meter vertical resolution from a minimum of 5000 feet to, and including, the ocea ...

  9. A High-Throughput Assay for Microbe-Based Hydrogen Production

    SBC: GVD Corporation            Topic: 07

    79348S Microbe-based hydrogen production is a potentially cost-effective, non-polluting approach to the production of hydrogen, and research efforts are underway to identify, isolate, and enhance microbial strains which facilitate the process. However, these efforts are hampered by a lack of adequate instruments to detect and pinpoint hydrogen producers, and no assays currently provide sufficient ...

  10. A Ladar Signature Capability for Transient Missile Events for FLITES

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA04026

    Engagement simulation models provide an indispensable tool for the design of sophisticated missile defense systems. This requires treating real-time motions and the complex scattering physics of active laser interactions with plume and debris fields from hardbody/plume transient events. Spectral Sciences, Inc., in collaboration with Kinetics, Inc and Photon Research Associates, Inc., proposes to ...
