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. Acute-infarct selective cardiac MRI contrast agent


    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant The overall goal of this project is to demonstrate the ability of our acute myocardial infarct selective paramagnetic contrast agent Gadolinium ABE DTTA to differentiate between acute and chronic infarcts in a reliable manner using contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging ceMRI In our Phase I data we have shown that Gd ABE DTTA exclusively highlight ...

  2. Long-Duration, Eye-in-the-Sky Monitoring for Airfield Threat Detection

    SBC: DEFENSE RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF06204

    In today’s Urban-Warfare Command and Control, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C2ISR) environment, current sensor platforms have a limited operational capability due to power consumption and recharge times. Many times these sensor packages are found to be unsuitable for many battlefield environments due strictly to their endurance limitations. Much of the research done to date has ...

  3. Radiation Mitigation Methods for Reprogrammable FPGA

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: X103

    NASA has been tasked to develop new and advanced capabilities to support both future manned and robotic missions to the lunar and Martian surfaces. It is the purpose of this program to develop advanced avionics, software, and information technologies for exploration missions. In particular, NASA is concerned with the extreme radiation present on the lunar surface, Martian surface, and in deep sp ...

  4. Airworthy Cable Angle Measurement System For Slung Load Operations

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: A09013

    Advanced Optical Systems, Inc. (AOS) has developed and demonstrated the Cable Angle Measurement System, a low-cost, accurate system for measuring a helicopter’s load position and motion at the end of an external sling. By using a camera, an LED target, and custom electronics, the AOS system measures the load’s angle with better than 0.1° accuracy across a 150° field of view and with 0.1°/s ...

  5. MAVlegs- Landing/running gear for perching MAV

    SBC: BIOROBOTS, LLC            Topic: AF093002

    BioRobots, LLC, will develop MAVlegs, a landing/running gear system that will significantly enhance our military and intelligence personnel’s ability to execute persistent surveillance by enabling a bird-size MAV to perch on a parapet wall, ledge, or tree limb. MAVlegs will arrest the MAV at the point of touchdown, because the perching locations are characterized by limited area. MAVlegs will en ...

  6. High-Fidelity Gas and Granular Flow Physics Models for Rocket Exhaust Interaction with Lunar Soil

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T701

    Current modeling of Lunar and Martian soil erosion and debris transport caused by rocket plume impingement lacks essential physics from the peculiar granular characteristics of highly irregular regolith particles. Current granular mechanics models are based on mono-disperse spherical particles empiricism unsuitable for capturing the poly-disperse irregularly shaped grain mechanics. CFDRC and the U ...

  7. Multimodal Synthetic Aperture Radar (MM-SAR) Exploitation

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF083014

    SAR Analyst production efficiency and proficiency can be increased through the application of attention focusing filters which draw attention to targets and changes. The attention focusing filters will be created using a cognitive systems engineering approach to the current issues that analysts face when operating within the given problem set of wide area, persistent surveillance in irregular war ...

  8. GEOINT Open Source Tool

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF083020

    The threats to U.S. national security are rapidly changing and geographically diffuse. It is a fact of life that intelligence analysts are often forced to shift rapidly from one topic to the next. Increasingly, Intelligence Community professionals need to quickly assimilate social, economic, and cultural information about a region. This information is often detailed in open sources. The problem, ...

  9. Development of Multifunctional Erosion-Resistant Damping Coating Systems and Application Methods for IBRs and Blisks

    SBC: HERMAN ADVANCED ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N08144

    The objective of the proposed work is to further develop the erosion-resistant damping coating technology to Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 5 & 6 and to demonstrate TRL 5 & 6 by testing a coated IBR via a bench test and by testing in a relevant environment engine test, respectively. The efforts will be carried out by a team of investigators at Herman Advanced Engineering and several other instit ...

  10. Multi-Use Coating for Abrasion Prevention, Wear Protection, and Lunar Dust Removal

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: X502

    The deleterious effects of lunar dust, typically less than 50 µm in diameter, have to be addressed prior to establishing a human base and long duration human presence on the surface of the moon. These effects include abrasion of seals, gaskets, motors, actuators, gimbals, bearings, blocking of optical windows, and coating of thermal control surfaces and solar panels with lunar dust. Negative phy ...
