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. Controlling Aerodynamic Surface Flow with Nonthermal Plasma

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: N/A

    The plasma surface flow controllers, or plasma actuators, are based on momentum transfer created by either locally accelerating the charged species of the plasma in the electric field or by globally accelerating the charged species of the plasma via aninduced traveling wave imposed by electric field generated by several phases of applied high voltage. Plasma based surface flow controllers have al ...

  3. Filter for Airborne Pathogens and Toxic Liquids

    SBC: eSpin Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Recent terrorist activities have left virtually no question that futureprotection systems for warriors will need to address chemical-biologicalfiltration. Although filters are presently available for CB threat, thereremains a need for regenerating, signature-less filters that can trapnanoparticulates and biological pollutants. In this context, under Phase IeSpin proposes to provide a feasibility d ...

    SBIR Phase I 2003 Department of DefenseAir Force


    The Helikite Elevated Platform ? Test Relay (HEP-TR) consists of a communications relay payload suspended from a new type of small tethered blimp, called a Helikite, and a Carrier that stores the Helikite and the winch, sensors and helium tanks. TheHEP-TR blimp can be flown at several thousand feet altitude for low cost, long term test communications relay coverage of large areas. It is highly m ...

  5. Novel High Current Switch for Spacecraft Power Bus Control


    The proposed semiconductor-insulator-semiconductor (SIS) is herein defined as a structure consisting of two semiconductor layers separated by an insulator. PTS proposes such a SIS structure as a latching on/off switch consisting of widebandgap (WBG)semiconductors as cathodes and anodes. The cathode will be designed as an efficient electron gun or cathode. The anode will be designed as both an effi ...

  8. Thermal Barrier Coatings for Titanium and High Temperature Polymeric Composite Components

    SBC: MICROPHASE COATINGS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MicroPhase Coatings Inc (MPCI) will prove the technical feasibility of an innovative thermal barrier coating in response to SBIR topic AF03-115. The technology uses a novel polymer-titanium-silicate matrix that cures at room temperature. It incorporateshollow glass microspheres for additional thermal insulation. The matrix has already been demonstrated in the laboratory--it withstands high tempera ...

  9. Time-Exposure Acoustics for Imaging Underground Structures

    SBC: GEOPHEX, LTD.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to further develop a new technique for imaging underground facilities based on the passive monitoring of acoustic emissions from both stationary and moving equipment within such facilities. It is well known that all mechanical devices, such asmotors, gears, etc, emit acoustic signals. It is possible to identify an acoustic source based on its noise spectrum. During Phase I, we have demo ...
