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. EB Curing of VARTM Fabricated Maritime Composite Structures

    SBC: DAMILIC Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DAMILIC and others have already demonstrated that EB cured composite structures have mechanical properties comparable to those of a standard thermally cured part. The objective of this Phase I program has is to demonstrate that standard, commercially available, resin transfer molding techniques can be combined with the high speed electron beam process to produce maritime structures and higher spe ...

  2. Miniature RF Receiving Antennas

    SBC: Delfin Systems            Topic: N/A

    The Phase I technical objective is to design a series of small receiving antennas which operate in the HF, VHF, and UHF frequency ranges (approximately 1 MHz to 1500 MHz) and then to build and test prototypes of the designs. The antennas are physically small in size and man-packable. Conventional antenna design approaches have constraints which can result in physically large structures, especially ...

  3. Investigation of Molded Photovoltaic Case


    Portable electronic equipment, whether military or civilian, now typically contain rechargeable batteries. Often it is inconvenient or impossible to connect this equipment to conventional battery charging sources. It would be highly desirable to incorporate a built-in battery recharging source with the equipment to overcome this shortcoming. Ideally this recharging source should not take up any ex ...

  4. Very Shallow Water Mine Countermeasures Diver Sonar-Lidar Sensor

    SBC: Hendrickson & Associates            Topic: N/A

    Currently an effective diver mine imaging sensor for use in VSW mine reconnaissance does not exist. The SBIR topic requests a capability to locate and image mine targets within a 45 deg wide x 10 deg high field-of-view and to image targets with a resolution of at least 3" at a range of 20 yards. An acoustic lens sonar is a preferred technical approach. Both an acoustic lens sonar and a more compac ...

  5. Non-Invasive Battery State-of-Charge Sensor

    SBC: Power Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The operational readiness of critical equipment often depends on the integrity of the battery subsystem. A small magnitude magnetic field, generated by a coil, can be used to monitor the state-of-charge and possibley long-term state-of-health of batteries. The proposed work will determine the feasibility of using a non-invasive sensor-external to a battery - and not connected to it's terminals. ...

  6. New Composite Manufactuing Processes for Special Operation Forces Maritime Craft Hulls

    SBC: SEEMANN COMPOSITES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Seemann Composites, Inc. (SCI), as the prime contractor, Materials Science Corporation (MSC) and McDonnell Douglas Phantom Works as subcontractors, propose to develop an advanced composite structure which will be significantly lighter, tougher and more reliable than previous hull structures and which can be built at a lower cost than conventional construction. Furthermore, problems with quality ...

  7. Infared Signature Suppression

    SBC: Sparta, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Suppression of the Infra-red (IR) signature of Special Operations Command (SOCOM) aircraft is a prerequisite for increasing survivability of the aircraft in the threat environment in which these aircraft must function. the primary goal of this program is to minimize the IR signature associated with the engine exhaust of the SOCOM C-130 and to demonstrate the potential of usage ofthe same technolo ...

  8. Development of a New Composite Manufacturing Process for Special Forces Maritime Craft

    SBC: STRUCTURAL COMPOSITES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Navy Special Operation Forces have a demonstrated mission need for low observable, lightweight, high performance platforms. Many of these platforms are ideally suited to the use of composite materials. Structural Composites, Inc. is proposing to combine an innovative composite manufacturing technology developed for the Navy with a new preform technology being used by the recreational boat indust ...

  9. State of Battery Health Test Set, Employing Time Domain Spectroscopic Techniques

    SBC: Texasgulf Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Time Domain Spectroscopy (TDS) is a precision metrology technique which allows the condition of an electrochemical cell or battery to be quantitatively evaluated in real time, obviating the protracted data collection times associated with the more familiar Frequency Response Analysis Method. In the FRA method, the cell's responses to a sequence of sinusoidal excitations are used to estimate the p ...

  10. Fuzzy Logic Control for High Performance Batteries

    SBC: US NANOCORP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Accurate battery state of charge (SOC) measurements and reserve power capacity measurements are cirtical for Special Operation Force (SOF) operators who use portabel battery-powered equipment in the field. Development of a reliable SOC determnation method would have broad dual use application in both the Military and private sector. US Nanocorp (USN) is collaborating with Villanova University's ...
