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. Improved Bearing Compartment Sealing for Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: ADVANCED COMPONENTS & MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: AF071172

    Carbon seals generlly used for bearing compartments will incrasingly become unsuitable for future gas turbine engines with higher buffer air temperatures, higher pressur and rotor surface speeds.Phase I effort will focus on a synergistic approach including advanced materials and design.Three materials including a (Ti,Mo)(C,N) cermet, B-C composite and a current high temperature grade carbon MAT-12 ...

  2. Ambient Power Supply for On-Board Vehicle Health Monitoring MEMS Sensors

    SBC: AMBIENT MICRO            Topic: AF06170

    In Phase I, Ambient Micro successfully demonstrated the capability of its Multi-Source Ambient Power Supply module to simultaneously harvest and store energy from multiple ambient sources to extend the operating life of MEMS Vehicle Health Monitoring sensors for UAV-mounted sensor systems. As the U.S. Air Force increasingly evolves UAV mission roles to support persistent surveillance, persistent s ...

  3. Enhanced, All-Weather Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) Sense and Avoid (SAA)

    SBC: FLIGHT SAFETY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF071257

    This SBIR Phase I proposal requests $99739 for Flight Safety Technologies, Inc. to investigate the feasibility and all-weather capability of a novel radar concept as an active, non-cooperative SAA sensor for UAVs. The concept radar, which we call Unicorn, is a narrow-band pulsed radar operating around a center frequency of 5.145 GHz in the aviation C-band, which has been approved for this develop ...

  4. Advanced Signature-Matched Hyperspectral Change Detection


    NovaSol is pleased to present a program to improve the utility and performance of existing and future hyperspectral reconnaissance sensors. The development of approach to signature-matched hyperspectral change detection will address the Air Force’s specific interest in lowering false alarm rates while maintaining or increasing probability of detection. NovaSol’s novel approach improves the e ...

  5. Antenna Array Structures for Composite Airframes

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF071086

    Described herein is a proposal for the design and fabrication of a novel, low-cost, low-profile nanotube antenna that can be conformed to the skin of composite airframe structures and potentially be integrated with nanotube active devices. Carbon nanotubes conformed to composite structures create radiating surfaces that can be configured as antennas and coupling these with nanotube active devices ...

  6. Directing Monopulse Jamming Toward Antenna of Semiactive or Antiradiation Missile

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF071214

    The proposed effort will develop an electro-optical sensor to direct an advanced monopulse electronic attack (EA) technique from an aircraft toward the antenna of a semiactive missile rather than the illuminating radar to increase the effectiveness of the countermeasures. The proposed electro-optical system will be high-speed and have high angular accuracy. The effort will examine operational re ...

  7. Noncoherent Dual Platform Advanced Monopulse Countermeasures (AMCs) Standoff Jammer

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF071220

    The cross-eye jamming technique based on DRFM can be extended to a dual platform system by using the collaborative network theory. Each airplane is equipped with Oceanit’s patented optical sensor, which is capable of measuring the angle between the other airplane and the missile. Therefore, the complete triangle made by the airplanes and missile can be uniquely determined once the distance betwe ...

  8. Satellite Threat and Environmental Effects Assessments for Defensive Counterspace

    SBC: Referentia Systems Incorporated            Topic: AF063007

    Satellites and other spacecraft are a key asset and critical vulnerability in our communications, surveillance and defense infrastructure. Space Situational Awareness (SSA) and Defensive Counterspace (DCS) efforts are aimed at leveraging the massive amounts of data gathered from ground, air and space based sensors to monitor and ideally protect these assets. While there has been much work on dat ...
