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. Subsurface Communications System for Robotics

    SBC: Sandia Research Corporation            Topic: DHS002

    Underground cross-border tunnels of all sizes and shapes are an increasingly important threat to our National security. Finding cross-border tunnels is a challenging task and once found, an additional challenge is secure and map the entire underground tunnel. Manned entry into these dangerous underground environments is a risky endeavor. The use of robotics offers a great improvement over human en ...

  2. High Voltage Capacitors for DC-Link Applications


    Transportable energy storage systems for grid applications serve several functions including integration and intermittency mitigation of renewables, improving grid stability and reliability by providing new capacity that can be deployed quickly and they provide a cost effective way to balance the load. Each energy storage unit includes a high power inverter that is used to convert DC voltage to ...

  3. Single-Chip Read-Out IC for High-Time-Resolution Megapixel-Class Imaging Systems

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: 26b

    Alphacore Inc. will design a monolithic multichannel readout integrated circuit (ROIC) that combines low-noise preamplifiers and fast shaping amplifiers with low-power 200MS/s flash analog to digital converters (ADCs). Such monolithic ROIC is currently not available and it is critically needed to provide an order of magnitude improvement to the effective event count rate of the existing imager sy ...

  4. Development of an Automated System to Measure Chlorinated Volatile Organic Compounds in Groundwater and Soil-Gas: A Tool to Enable Remote Field Monitoring of the Long-Term Migration

    SBC: BURGE ENVIRONMENTAL, INC.            Topic: 20b

    The long-term monitoring of groundwater contamination plumes and soil-gas migration to determine the fate of contaminants in the environment is expensive and labor intensive. Current baseline methods have resulted in monitoring programs that collect less data than is required to fully understand the fate and transport mechanisms of the volatile contaminants in groundwater and soil-gas. An automat ...

  5. Direct Digital Secondary Electron Signal Acquisition Probe for Scanning Electron Microscope.

    SBC: SCIENCETOMORROW LLC            Topic: 08a

    Research is proposed to investigate the feasibility of applying recent advances in semiconductor technology to fabricate direct digital Quantitative Secondary Electron Detectors (QSED) for scanning electron microscopes (SEMs). If successful, commercial versions of the QSED would transform the SEM/STEM into a quantitative, metrological tool with enhanced capabilities that, in turn, would broaden r ...

  6. HV Storage Capacitors for High Current Pulse Power Applications


    High Energy accelerators and colliders are becoming increasingly compact and switching devices such as thyratron tubes are replaced by solid state switches such as IGBT, IGCT and MOSFET devices, operating at voltages of 3KV to 6.0+KV with peak currents of 0.5-6.0+KA. Klystron modulators built with various topologies require HV energy storage capacitors that can operate at the same voltage and c ...

  7. Atmospheric Characterization for Directed Energy Applications

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: MDA12017

    Atmospheric refractive index fluctuations directly impact the propagation of laser beams through the atmosphere. A key parameter of interest to be directly acquired or derived from atmospheric measurements is the refractive index structure parameter CN2. Atmospheric refractive index, and therefore CN2, can theoretically be derived as a function of temperature, humidity, and pressure measurements ...

  8. Direct Digital Fabrication and Characterization of New Low Cost Titanium Alloys

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N122123

    In this Phase I program, MER will work with Prof. James Williams of Ohio State University (OSU) to identify and fabricate new titanium alloys of interest to the Navy. The alloys will be fabricated using a low cost DDM process in place at MER which utilizes a plasma transferred arc welding torch as the heat source. The mechanical properties and microstructure of these new alloys will be characteriz ...

  9. Piezocrystal Gyroid Transducer

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N122142

    We propose the design and development of a novel gyroid transducer comprised of piezocrystal ring elements. The Phase I effort covers the modeling and demonstration of the gyroid transducer and comparison of performance with several piezocrystal and piezoceramic materials. The electroacoustic performance will be estimated for several designs and a prototype element will be built and laboratory tes ...

  10. Deployable Multi-Band Radio Base Station

    SBC: KINETX, INC.            Topic: N122148

    This offer proposes a set of activities to provide an innovative Deployable WCDMA Multi-Band Radio Base Station. The effort entails investigation, trade studies, and architecture design to support an easily fielded, transportable WCDMA Base Station not typical of mainstream communication deployments. The derived solution will support both military and commercial applications where terrestrial or s ...
