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. Ultrasonic phased array inspection of aircraft turbine engine components

    SBC: ACOUSTIC IDEAS, INC.            Topic: AF02111

    As a cost avoidance measure against expensive replacement of certain life-limiting components of turbine engines, the Engine Rotor Life Extension (ERLE) program was conceived by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to extend component life without increasing the risk of component failure. Nondestructive evaluation is one of many important components of ERLE which, if successfully implemented, ...

  2. Advanced Separator Materials For Batteries

    SBC: ADVANCED MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF03172

    Due to environmental control requirements, the sources of separator materials for existing Ni-H2 batteries are discontinuing that business. During Phase I of this project, AMS developed an advanced battery separator technology that addresses this issue. Specifically, AMS developed a high-performance battery separator that can replace the current Ni-H2 separator without major cell design changes. ...

  3. Predictive Polarimetry Atmospherics Closure System (PPACS)

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: AF03031

    AFRL/VSSS is the lead Air Force group providing the DoD community with physics-based predictive models critical to assessing the utility of EO/IR spectro-polarimetric sensing for aerospace reconnaissance and target cueing. AFRL/VSSS is presently upgrading the government-standard MODTRAN atmospheric radiance code to properly handle polarization. However, there is currently no means of deducing th ...

  5. Optical IR/UV Background Monitoring System

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF03261

    Agiltron proposes a new uncooled infrared imaging concept that meets the stringent requirements for background fire protection monitoring under intense EMI at the large Air Force Flight Test Center anechoic facility. The approach is fully compatible with silicon IC processing and utilizes a novel combination of optical read out of a surface micro-machined detector to achieve nearly instantaneous ...

  6. Long Wavelength Acousto-optic Tunable Filters for Multispectral Imaging Applications

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA04061

    Utilizing recently available exceptional mercurous chloride (Hg2Cl2) acousto-optic material having the largest known optical filter figure of merit, we propose to develop a state-of-the-art high speed and wide-bandwidth long-wavelength acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF). The proposed device has the desirable performance attributes of wide operating wavelength range, low optical loss, low power c ...

  7. Novel Infrared Imaging Fiber Optic Bundles

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF04292

    Currently available IR fibers are inadequate for fiberoptic IR imager applications due to their narrow transmission range, unacceptably large optical loss, and high cost. These deleterious features have also hampered their acceptance for applications in chemical sensing, thermometry, and laser power delivery. In this program, Agiltron Inc. proposes to develop an entirely new type of IR fiber tha ...

  9. Continuous Wave Terahertz Source Photonic Band Engineering

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: BMDO02T00

    The terahertz wave region of the electromagnetic spectrum offers exciting and unique attributes for security imaging and secure broadband communications. However, THz signal generation is difficult and current applications are rare. Existing THz sources utilize large and expensive lasers operating in pulsed mode. Practical application of THz radiation requires the development of THz source techn ...
