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. Thermoelectric material-coated carbon nanotubes as high conductivity thermal interface materials

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT22

    The ever-decreasing size of the electronic microchips and the ever-increasing density of electronic components required to support future Air Force platforms are creating the problem of substantial localized heat generation that can impair component operation. State of the art thermal interface materials (TIMs), that are used to dissipate heat from the source to the spreader in a microchip, are se ...

  2. A Novel Nanomaterial-enabled Hybrid Power System

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD09EP2

    Developments in micro/nano technologies are leading the way to a new fleet of micro air vehicle (MAV) airframes. However, the unavoidable and ultimately the mission-limiting issue for all of these new systems will be on-board power. The lightest-weight current lithium-polymer batteries don’t provide sufficient energy densities and impose a variety of operational limitations that are unacceptab ...

  3. Nanomaterial Technologies for Long-Life Li-ion Batteries

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF093065

    Lithium-ion batteries have become the industry standard for use as rechargeable secondary batteries in space vehicles. Although substantial advancements have made in this class of batteries of late, substantial limitations still exist in: energy and power densities, operational temperature limits, safety, and most importantly lifecycle and lifetime performance. To address this need, ADA Technolo ...

  4. Multi-Functional High Energy, High Power Lithium-Polymer Batteries for MAVs

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF093098

    Micro air vehicles (MAV) are envisioned to play a substantial role in carrying out critical missions for the Nation’s future military force. However due to their small size, deficiencies in critical technologies may limit the operational performance of future MAVs. Arguably, on-board power may be the most mission-limiting issue facing future MAVs. To address this need, ADA Technologies, Inc. ...

  5. Improved Performance of Morphing Shape Memory Polymer Skins

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF093127

    Morphing air vehicles are characterized by an ability to dramatically alter their airfoil characteristics to maintain optimal aerodynamic efficiency over a broad flight regime thereby broadening their mission profile over an equivalent fixed-wing vehicle. Essential to enabling these vehicles is a wing skin that is highly compliant in-plane for wing morphing while being highly stiff out-of-plane to ...

  6. Advanced Anode Materials for Improved Power in Lithium-Ion Batteries

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A09178

    Today''s military equipment has become increasingly reliant on powerful and sophisticated electronic components that require a wide range of batteries providing: high energy and power per unit mass and volume, operation in a wide range of temperatures, long storage life, and safety. Hence, the Army has migrated to the use of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries with significantly reduced weight as compa ...

  7. Advanced Composite Materials for Submarine Hatches

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N101065

    U.S. Navy submarine and submersible vessels incorporate numerous unique and high performance structural components. To meet their challenging mission requirements, these components must meet substantial performance requirements including resistance to considerable depth pressure, seawater corrosion and other unique U.S. Navy performance requirements. One such structural component is the watertight ...

  8. Rapid Tactics Development Using Existing, Low-Cost Virtual Environments

    SBC: Adaptive Cognitive Systems            Topic: N08117

    A tremendous need exists for intelligent agents that can be created and edited without resorting to intensive knowledge engineering and programming, and which exhibit believable and variable behavior in the training contexts in which they are deployed. This proposal describes a novel method for creating and editing intelligent agents’ behavior based on using instance-based modelin ...

  9. Variable Speed Speech Synthesis

    SBC: ADVANCED MEDIA RESEARCH INC            Topic: N08149

    The main objective of this project is to develop technologies for variable speaking speed synthesis, or Text-to-Speech (TTS). A TTS system converts written text into spoken language. There are numerous commercial TTS systems; however, most systems do not allow for speed control of the output speech. In the simulation-based virtual training system, TTS systems are used to generate the voice of the ...

  10. Distributed Wireless Sensor Network for Structural Health Monitoring of Ships

    SBC: Albido Corporation            Topic: N101095

    In recent years, the need for highly reliable, durable and non-intrusive systems for monitoring the health condition of naval structures becomes more and more recognized. Such Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems should be able to detect failures in their early stages so that the repairs would be less expensive or, even better, it should be able to predict the critical conditions so that pre ...
