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. Adaptive Distributed Aperture Radar Mainlobe Jammer Suppression

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA07037

    The mitigation of mainlobe jamming is essential to missile defense radar performance. Applied Radar is currently investigating distributed aperture and adaptive processing architectures that promise a new generation of advanced radar performance. Our proposed program will research the application of these distributed aperture radar techniques to determine the mainlobe jammer suppression possible w ...

  2. Advanced Phased-Array Module Interconnect Technology

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA07036

    The design and development of phased-array radars requires the integration of solid-state components and adequate thermal mitigation within the array lattice constraints. The current trend is towards increasingly planar designs and a reduction in the array depth. The MDA SPEAR program is one example in which a planar T/R “tile” architecture is utilized. System-on-a-chip technologies such as Si ...

  3. ElectronicTextile Antennas

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: SB021014

    Long-duration wide-area surveillance missions increasingly are space-based. MEO orbits offer space-based radar systems more time on station, but require very large array apertures on the order of 100m in diameter. Achieving larger apertures with smaller, lighter launch packages and stable on-orbit pointing is a challenge that E-Textiles promises to meet. Textile processes can be used to achieve a ...

  4. Engineered Spores as Fluorogenic Biological Indicators for Sterility Testing

    SBC: BCR DIAGNOSTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): BCR Diagnostics, Inc. (BCR) has recently developed and patented a technology platform for engineering fluorogenic functionality into living Bacillus spores. Fluorogenic spores (F-spores) produced at BCR appear to be phy siologically identical to normal spores except for performing as self reporters of initial germination events. Considering the unique features ...

  7. Miniaturization of Thermoacoustic Expander for 50 mW Recuperative Coolers Run Below 40 K

    SBC: CRYOWAVE ADVANCED TECHNOLGIES INC            Topic: MDA06023

    The objective of this project is to develop a novel expander that can increase the efficiency of cryocoolers for IR sensors at very low temperatures and in remote cooling and across gimbal applications. Miniature Thermoacoustic Expanders (MTAE) that employ high energy acoustic waves generated with no moving parts at the cold expander to produce efficient cooling over a wide range of temperatures a ...

  9. T1D Tolerance Induction with Natural Treg Epitopes

    SBC: EPIVAX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Type 1 (juvenile) diabetes is an organ-specific autoimmune disease resulting from destruction of insulinproducing pancreatic beta-cells. In non-diabetics, islet cell antigen-specific T cells are either deleted in thymic development or are converted to T regulatory cells that actively suppress effector responses to islet cell antigens. In juvenile diabetics and ...

  10. Generalized Environmental Acoustic Model Structure for Bottom Backscatter

    SBC: Marine Acoustics, Inc.            Topic: N07189

    Existing OAML-approved active acoustic models are under continuous evolution to take advantage of new theoretical and numerical developments and more powerful computational resources. These models are supported by OAML-approved environmental databases that are also constantly updated to accommodate the newly developed models and recent measurements throughout the world. The databases that describe ...
