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. Software Defined Wideband DREX Receiver

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA09T003

    To realize next generation missile defense radar systems with a significant improvement in performance requires more cost effective system implementations. Software defined radar (SDR) technologies together with field programmable gate array (FPGA) implementations promise reusable and low cost DREX multichannel receivers in smaller form factors. Real time firmware reconfiguration enables radar mod ...

  2. Open System Manufacturing of Large Sensing/Weapons Platforms

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: SB102005

    In order to maintain our nation’s technological superiority on air, sea and land, we must respond quicker to emerging threats and reduce the cost of major sensing platforms. Every DoD platform developed nowadays contains at least one sensor, whether it be RF, EO/IR, or acoustic. In fact, in a lot of recent developments, the platform is built around the sensor and exists only to support the senso ...

  3. Multi-Band Airborne SAR/GMTI System Development

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: AF093138

    A multi-band airborne synthetic aperture radar and ground moving-target indicating (SAR/GMTI) radar system will be designed and developed that will utilize multiple frequency bands to improve the radar imaging and target detection performance in various clutter environments. Applied Radar’s existing wideband digital receiver/exciter (DREX) hardware is inherently capable of supporting radar appli ...

  4. Wideband Multi-Channel AESA Manifolds

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: N101020

    Multi-channel array manifolds are required for wideband AESA applications. In modern solid-state AESA arrays, MMIC-based T/R modules generally utilize digitally-controlled phased shifters to steer the beam on transmit and receive. The given phase value is only accurate at one frequency, and so for wide bandwidths of several hundred MHz (at X-band for example), the beam does not get formed properly ...

  5. Power-Efficient Adaptive-and-Robust Link OFDM (PEARL-OFDM)

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: N093218

    Key obstacles to extending OFDM to wireless links and networks at high-frequencies and dynamic channels are inherent low performance to Doppler and power amplifiers operation with high back-off. Other significant obstacles are multipath and impulsive noise. PEARL-OFDM combines a layered architecture with technologies that mitigate such obstacles and enable full-range rates that maximizes connectiv ...

  6. Materials and Device Modeling to Reduce Cost and Time to Exploit Relaxor Piezoelectric Single Crystals in Navy SONAR Transducers

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N08061

    We propose the development of a compact broadband underwater cylindrical transducers with integrated tuning networks and power amplifiers for Mobile Acoustic Counter Measures. There is a need for cost effective transducers that are broadband and have broad-beam coverage. BTech has designed and built improved counter measure transducers as well as acoustic modem transducers using both PZT materials ...

  7. Cost-Effective PiezoCrystal Transducer Assembly Technologies

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N101092

    The design and development of piezocrystal sonar transducers is a challenging multidisciplinary and technological effort that spans many fields and skill sets. We look to extend and improve our transducer assembly technologies to reduce cost and implementation time for sonar technology transition and in particular our methods for Active-Passive single crystal ring development and fiber glass wrapp ...

  8. Optimum Control of Induction Generators for Water Current Energy Harnessing

    SBC: Electro Standards Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: 815

    Optimization of generator performance and maximization of output power are difficult to attain in the generation of hydro-power. This is due to the changing water conditions and corresponding changes in the form of available energy. ESL proposes to use self-tuning controls in combination with a suitably chosen and optimized generator driven by hydro-energy and condition it for distributi ...

  9. Forward Bathymetry and Obstacle Avoidance Sensing for Safe High Speed Boat Operation Using 3D Forward Looking Sonar

    SBC: FARSOUNDER, INC.            Topic: N101077

    In order to improve the safety and efficiency of navy high speed small boat operations, FarSounder proposes a 3-dimensional, forward looking sonar solution capable of simultaneous bathymetry sensing and obstacle detection out to ranges of at least 1640 ft (500m). Additionally, the system will be cable of 50 knot operation and suitable for installation on a high speed planing vessel such as common ...

  10. Compact Efficient Electrically Small Broadband Antennas

    SBC: Minerva Systems & Technologies, LLC            Topic: A10131

    The objective of this proposal is to design and develop compact, efficient, electrically small, broadband antennas that are capable of handling high voltages of greater than 100 kV, and fit into small geometrical spaces of less than 40 mm in diameter and 50 mm in length. Previously insurmountable challenges to achieving the stringent requirements of simultaneous compact size, wider bandwidths, an ...
