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. Electronically Shunted Smart Material Damper Packages for Extreme Environments

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACX proposes an alternate approach to damping for extreme environments, which uses an electrically shunted, surface mounted, smart material. This shunting approach has been most widely used in less extreme environments in conjunction with piezoceramic materials. The smart material is bonded to the surface of the target structure, in this case a part inside an aircraft engine. Stress on the part ...

  2. Hybrid Vibration Control Actuator Systems

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Active Control eXperts, (ACX) Inc. proposes to design, fabricate, and demonstrate a novel hybrid vibration ccntrol actuator system capable of very precise, controllable motion. This system will combine the advantages of a capacitive actuator with feedback control capability. This system will possess the force and stroke characteristics of a small hydraulic device and the bandwidth of electric moto ...

  3. Smart, Adaptive Packages for Vibration Suppression

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In many structures with vibration problems, the nature of the problem is uncertain, or varies over time. Thus it is not possible 'a priori to design a linear, time-invariant, (LTI) feedback control law which is guaranteed to meet performance, or possibly even stability requirements over the entire operating range. These applications require an intelligent control system which can adapt to the ch ...

  4. Jam Resistant GPS Reception

    SBC: ADCOM SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY,INC.            Topic: N/A

    A unique approach is proposed for the effective rejection of cochannel, but otherwise arbitrary, jamming and other interference in GPS reception. The approach is based on a method of processing a multiplicity of signals sharing the same time-frequency and polarization space, in such a way as to favor a bona fide GPS signal over the others present (jamming, spoofing, multipath, atmospherics or oth ...

  5. Modeling of Meteoric Influx and Studies of Atmospheric Ramifications

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Radex, Inc. proposes to develop a comprehensive model of the influx of meteors and cosmic dust to the Earth's atmosphere which will be sufficiently general for use in visual and radar observations as well as for driving models of the ionospheric and neutral metal layers. The model will draw upon meteor observation data which will be analysed and consolidated into software for prediction of the to ...

  6. High Performance UAV System Design Based on High Power Microturbine Technology

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A radical, high performance system design concept for UAV missions is proposed. Its characteristics derive directly from propulsion and power generation capabilities inherent in microturbine technology under development at MIT. The proposed vehicle configurations is an oblate spheroid, giving a high package volume with sufficient fuel capacity for hover duration of about one hour. Thrust from m ...

  7. An Infrared Polarimetric Hyperspectral Imaging Sensor for Low False Alarm Rate Target Detection

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Imaging spectrometers are a powerful new tool for performing hyperspectral measurements for remote sensing, environmental monitoring, and target detection and characterization applications. The major problem associated with hyperspectral measurements now, however, is not the technology for performing the measurements but rather the technology for analyzing and recording the high data rates genera ...

  8. Linearly Oscillating Miniature Internal Combustion Engine (MICE)

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Micro Aerial Vehicle (¿AVs) will open up a wide range of new missions for the US Armed Forces, but also present a new set of technical challenges. The power and propulsion system will have a significant impact on the ultimate capabilities and range of missions of ¿AVs. While advanced battery technology can provide good propulsion performance for ¿AVs, miniature internal combustion engines can ...

  9. DISTRIBUTED APERTURE E-O SYSTEM FOR TRACKING AND DESIGNATION

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A small number of conformal E-O sensors distributed over the surface of an aircraft can provide field of view coverage for Missile Warning, IRST and FLIR viewing. An innovative technique (Spatial Modulation) is used to allow a low density IR focal plane array to provide the necessary high resolution over a wide field of view. The Spatial Modulation sensor has an intermediate focal plane that is ...

  10. Multiple Beam Antennas with Semi-Constrained Beamformers

    SBC: AJK TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    A mobile satellite communications link operating from vehicles on-the-move would provide significant benefits to the Marine Corps in the battlefield environment. The antenna should be capable of simultaneous and rapid tracking of two satellites while the vehicle is in motion over rough terrain, as well as providing ultra-wide bandwidth (C-band through Ku-band), medium to high gain, low profile, ru ...
