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. Ai1: A Cognitive Prosthetic to Support Independence in Executive Functioning for Soldiers with TBI

    SBC: ABLELINK TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: SB072011

    Very little research and development has been done to address the unique assistive technology needs of individuals with traumatic brain injuries. In response to the immediate need for executive functioning supports for soldiers with TBI/PTST, an all-in-one (Ai1) system is proposed to provide independent access to message recording, personal schedule maintenance and cellular telephones for soldier ...

  2. MEMS/NEMS High Temperature Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: SB072027

    The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of using Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (MEMS) and Nano-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (NEMS) technologies to create high performance thermal barrier coatings (TBC) that will improve the performance, efficiency and lifetime of gas turbine engines. The goal is to produce TBCs that have better thermal barrier properties, lower diffusion rat ...

  3. 3D Visualization for Serpentine Robotic Systems

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: SB062023

    Advanced Scientific Concepts Inc. has developed a compact, 3D flash LADAR (3DFL) video camera. It is not a scanning LIDAR, but instead takes a 128x128 pixel image with a single flash of laser light and can acquire 30 frames per second. 3D images are obtained at over a kilometer with a very compact, ASC-designed, 15 millijoule eye-safe laser. Both the 3DFL video camera and the laser, with inno ...

  4. Establishing Cavitation as a Damage Mechanism for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) from an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Blast

    SBC: Advanced Technology And Research Corporation            Topic: SB082007

    The leading risk facing our soldiers in Iraq is an improvised explosive device (IED). IED attacks on vehicles create an extreme shock environment that has been linked to Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). While the damage mechanisms that cause TBI remain elusive, several researchers have speculated that the damage mechanisms of stress and strain associated with non-war-related TBI may not sufficiently ...

  6. Shock Resistant MEMS Optical Matrix Switch

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF071243

    Future military satellite fiber optic systems require a matrix optical switch for reconfigurability. But to date, no MEMS based switch has been able to withstand the harsh shock and vibration environment of space. Agiltron, Inc., an experienced manufacturer of aerospace qualified optical switches, proposes to realize a new MEMS-based fiber-optic matrix switch capable of vastly improved performance ...

  7. High-Speed Interconnects Over Copper Traces

    SBC: Aguila Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB052021

    As technology trends towards higher system data rates with reduced size and cost, the ability to create high-speed electrical interconnections at low cost is becoming critical. High-speed I/O, integrated along with high I/O parallellicity, is allowing interconnects to achieve over 1Tb/s of total chip-to-chip data rates. These rates are on a rapid upward trend, increasing at a rate of about 20% per ...

  8. Hardware Independent Networked Active Sensor Middleware

    SBC: AID NETWORKS            Topic: SB082033

    The pioneering efforts within the DARPA SENSIT and NEST programs, proved the potential of wireless sensor network (WSN) technology for compelling DoD applications, including surveillance and target localization. These projects'' legacies include hardware platforms, used extensively in academic research today and the TinyOS software suite. At the same time, these programs revealed the limitations o ...

  9. Effective Multi-core Software Development

    SBC: ALLOY COMPUTING, LLC            Topic: SB072010

    Multi-core processors pose a significant challenge for software application developers. This is because the vast majority of algorithms and applications have been - and continue to be - developed using methodologies and techniques that assume sequential runtime execution. The key to efficiently and effectively leveraging multi-core processors is the ability to expose, extract, and exploit concurr ...

  10. Low-Stored-Volume Wings for a Very High Altitude Aircraft

    SBC: ANDREWS SPACE, INC.            Topic: SB072042

    Andrews Space proposes an inflatable rigidizable wing that can be stored folded or rolled up, and deployed at altitude via an inflation system, and will then cure to form a rigid wing improving the reliability and reducing the risk of an inflatable wing. It will also be much lighter and have a much smaller storage volume than a mechanically folding wing. A high altitude, long endurance aircraft c ...
