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. CMR Oxides Based Microbolometer Focal Plane Array with Reduced 1/f Noise

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A09AT014

    We propose to realize a new class of microbolometer FPA technology with significantly reduced 1/f noise by replacing the sensing material (e.g. VOx) with colossal magnetoresistive (CMR) oxides. The program uniquely combines Agiltron’s experience in novel IR imager development and leading academic research on CMR at Los Alamos National Lab (LANL). The LANL Team has developed a breakthrough pro ...

  2. Wide FOV and Fast Active Optical Detection System

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A09013

    In this SBIR program, we propose to develop a wide angle and fast optical detection system for measuring the slung load cable angle and angular rate in real time, which is necessary to stabilize the external loads in heavy-lift vertical resupply operations by fleet helicopters or unmanned helicopters. This development efforts leverage Agiltron’s extensive experiences in developing the variety of ...

  3. Monolithic SiGe SWIR Imaging Cameras

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A07119

    Agiltron, in collaboration with RTI International and Black Forest Engineering, will demonstrate in this program a low-SWAP (size, weight, and power), large pixel resolution, sub-10 µm pixel pitch SWIR imaging camera that will meet the Army’s requirements for imaging performance. The heart of the imaging camera is an integrated SWIR CMOS imaging FPA that combines a Ge/Si-based photodiode array ...

  4. A Novel High Resolution Photon Counting Detector for X-Ray Inspections

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

    Current state-of-the-art X-ray imaging detectors use energy integration, where the simple integration of X-ray events during the exposure period forms images. Unfortunately, such indiscriminate operation is sub-optimal for digital radiography or CT imaging because of its inability to reject scatter, thus reducing contrast in reconstructed images, and the limited resolution of the detectors, which ...

  5. VIS-SWIR Solid State Silicon-Germanium Imaging Camera Development

    SBC: aPeak Inc.            Topic: A08100

    This proposal responds to the Army’s effort to fuse image intensification with infrared technologies and to rapidly meet warfighter’s protection needs. Small, lightweight, low cost, high-sensitivity solid-state infrared cameras widely disseminated on the battlefield would revolutionize land warfare. An effective sensor utilizing covert illumination and nightglow background would require a came ...

  6. The IMPACTTM Surgical Skills Trainer: Using Deliberate Practice to Maintain Specialized Surgical Knowledge and Skills While on Deployment

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD08H09

    While on deployment, many military surgeons spend the bulk of their time performing general and/or trauma surgery. With combat deployments averaging 12-18 months, such prolonged lapses in practice can degrade the surgeons’ specialized knowledge and skills. This becomes a major problem upon their return stateside, when they are expected to resume their specialty duties with little or no re-creden ...

  7. Training Collaboration in Interagency SSTR (TraCIS)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD07CR5

    In Stability, Security, Transition, and Reconstruction (SSTR) operations, personnel from different agencies must effectively collaborate despite having different agendas, standard operating procedures, and desired outcomes. Even in SSTR operations, which are fundamentally collaborative, experts in one particular field often have only a rudimentary understanding of other fields. They are unaware ...

  8. Emotion Management Orientation and Training Exercises (EMOTE)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A08T002

    Army leaders face a wide variety of emotionally charged situations. Success in dealing with these situations requires that Army leaders manage their emotions and those of others. Army leaders, however, receive relatively little training in this area. Ne

  9. PLANET: PLatform for ANalyzing Environmental Trade-offs

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A09095

    Environmental management of at-risk sites requires decision-makers to integrate heterogeneous technical information with stakeholder values. Current models exist to specifically address the technical or numerical environmental conditions, and separately to provide decision analysis. A comprehensive, decision-support platform is required to seamlessly integrate these many factors and estimate thei ...

  10. MAVEN: Mnemonic Associative Vocabulary for Emergency Needs

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A08179

    All Soldiers are required to master 17 First Aid procedures in basic training. These 17 procedures are described in 99 pages of the Soldiers’ Manual of Common Tasks. To even the best student, recall of these exact procedures in a stressful situation would be challenging. This proposal outlines a research and development program to develop an iconic language of visual mnemonics. This iconic langu ...
