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. Technologies for Rare Earths Enrichment of a Novel Low-Cost Raw Material

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: OSD12T01

    A critical step in the extraction of elements from ore, especially rare earth elements that are found in complex minerals, is separation. Froth flotation is a highly versatile method for physically separating particles based on differences in the ability of air bubbles to selectively adhere to specific mineral surfaces in a mineral/water slurry. The particles with attached air bubbles are then ca ...

  2. SONICSensor Operations via Naturalistic Interactive Control

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD12HS2

    As analysts and operators move from data to insights, tools are needed for supervisory control, command and control, and intelligence analysis. Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) requires the ability to navigate and interpret mounds of data to produce actionable decisions. Through the Urban Telepresence program, the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) is redefining a concept of ...

  3. Advanced Robot Training Interface

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: OSD13HS1

    It is not likely that an autonomous system can be programmed with all the information it requires to perform every mission or every variation of every contingency within the near future. One way to address this issue is to provide user-friendly means to teach or program a robot to add to its autonomous capability. This proposal focuses on the physical aspects of the robot performance, manipulat ...

  4. Increasing the Specific Power of Epitaxial Lift-Off Solar Cells for Cost-Effective, High-Efficiency, Flexible Photovoltaics

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: OSD13EP3

    Photovoltaics (solar cells) are an attractive technology to provide renewable energy sources for forward operating bases, man-portable power sources, and tactical applications. Solar arrays can provide base power greatly reducing the need for logistical fuels, continuous battery recharging for warfighters on the move, and integrated power sources for remote, autonomous systems, e.g. UAVs. To be ef ...

  5. Autonomy Safety Testing Environment

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: OSD141AU4

    Recent advancements in sensor simulation tools [2] have improved our ability to model radar, lidar, camera, and GPS with software/hardware in the loop. Of course, our ability to model the physics of heavy trucks [3] is quite mature as well. To address the challenge of developing the STE, we will provide our autonomy algorithms as Government Furnished Equipment (GFE). The focus of this topic ...

  6. Theory-Driven Protocols for Replacing Elemental Composition of Strategic Materials

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: OSD12T05

    In this STTR program, QuesTek Innovations LLC, a leader in ICME (Integrated Computational Materials Engineering), will partner with Professor Chris Wolverton from Northwestern University to develop a theory-driven compound discovery methodology. Our unique approach will involve high throughput DFT and data mining based approaches to both materials system screening and crystal structure prediction. ...

  7. Toolkit for Managing Evaluation and Testing for Red Team Investigations of Cyber Security (METRICS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD12IA1

    Adversaries are becoming increasingly proficient at cyber attacks against command and control infrastructure. Maintaining security requires high-fidelity assessments of software services, e.g., through exercises in which Systems Under Test are subjected t

  8. AWAKE: Adaptive Workspace for Analyst Knowledge & Engagement

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD12AU5

    There is an increasing need for fast and accurate analysis of large volumes of disparate data containing critical information. Existing tools for information search, retrieval, and exploitation are inadequate because the tools have limited ability to (1) help the analyst understand the semantics within the information, (2) reveal the relationships between the information and the analytic task, or ...

  9. Sense-making via Collaborative Agents and Activity Networks (SCAAN)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD12AU6

    The volume of data collected by Air Force ISR has exceeded the capacities of traditional analysis methods. New enhancements to the Air Forces PCPAD intelligence cycle are, thus, critical to providing the analyst with the ability to strategically process, exploit and analyze the most critical information. Aptimas SCAAN system seeks to enhance PCPAD by distributing data exploitation and analysis tas ...
