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. Signal Processing for Emerging Wireless Technologies

    SBC: 3DB LABS, INC.            Topic: AF05103

    In many cases the analyst's problem is one of finding a needle in a haystack. The ever increasing flood of communication technology and traffic has resulted in a large and growing haystack and presents a daunting problem. The key to maximizing analyst productivity is the development of intelligent tools which automatically and accurately extract potential activity of interest while only rejectin ...

  2. Improved Agricultural Sustainability through Microbial Enhanced Disease Resistance and Yield in Corn


    Seed treatments with the plant symbionts Trichoderma harzianum strain T22 results in root colonization and about a 5 bushel per acre yield increase over several hundred field trials. However, results have been quite variable, with yield changes ranging from about 50 bu/acre to actual yield decreases. We have demonstrated that the yield change is determined by unknown maize genetic factors. We expe ...

  3. Ballistic Impact Dynamic Modeling of Fabric for New Protection Systems

    SBC: AltaSim TechNologies, LLC            Topic: A05001

    Advanced Computation and Engineering Services proposes to develop new and innovative modeling concepts to more accurately define and predict the failure modes of various fabric materials from current and futuristic ballistic impacts, working closely with North Carolina State University and conferring with engineers at body armor manufactures. Extensive research has been conducted by various gover ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: A Multilevel Method for Rapid Evaluation of Sound Fields

    SBC: Advanced Numerical Solutio            Topic: IT

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to obtain rapid solutions to the acoustic wave equation for periodic built-up structures through development of advanced computational tools. The proposed novel modification exploits the structural symmetry to dramatically speedup the Fast Multilevel Multipole Algorithm (MLFMA). In addition several enhancements are proposed to imp ...

  5. Fast docking with fewer degrees of freedom, combined with intelligent optimization of small molecules

    SBC: AETION TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: A05T014

    Conventional docking tests take a long time because of the many degrees of freedom. Additionally, large libraries of small molecules are tested without adequately using feedback about their suitability as inhibitors from previous tests. We propose a rapid initial screen that can computationally evaluate large numbers of small molecules so that a subset may be selected for further computational ana ...

  6. Automated Weapons Assembly and Missile De-canning System

    SBC: AGILE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N04199

    Opportunities exist today to utilize proven robotics technology to automate the process of building air-launched ready service weapons aboard aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ships. Affordable and reliable automated systems, working in concert with crew members, promise means to increase ordnance throughput rates sufficiently to support the most aggressive sortie generation rates, while si ...

  7. A Systematic Approach to Uncertainty Analysis for Physical Optics Based Radar Cross Section Prediction.

    SBC: ANALYTIC DESIGNS INC            Topic: AF05212

    The model validation process in radar cross section (RCS) database production is time consuming and labor intensive. Typically, synthetically generated data is compared to measured data, which is considered to be "truth." However, one must acknowledge that time may be waisted trying to refine a target model beyond the fidelity capable of the synthetic tools or the measurement data source. Analy ...

  8. Nonlinear Enhancement of Visual Target Detection

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: AF05T021

    Object identification, quantification and localization are key goals in both military target detection and quantitative medical imaging. As in medical imaging, military images are often difficult to interpret due to noise, spatial resolution limits, changing background conditions and uncertainty about the materials being imaged. We propose to vastly improve the results from hyperspectral imaging s ...

  9. Metal Coated Carbon Nanofibers as Pyrophoric IR Countermeasures

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N05001

    Infrared (IR) countermeasures to protect combatant aircraft now use pyrophoric metal foils to generate a decoy IR signature. These foils have a number of drawbacks, such as a limited and known signature that will eventually be defeated and a supply that comes from a non-competitive sole source. Also pyrophoric foils occasionally fail to ignite at high altitude. This project will develop a famil ...

  10. Intercalated and Hydrogenated Carbon Nanofibers for Multifunctional Radiation Protection

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: B103

    Improvements in radiation shielding materials are needed to support NASA's human and robotic exploration programs. Shielding for both electromagnetic radiation (gamma and x-rays) and particles (protons and neutrons) are critical. Ideally, the shielding should be part of a multifunctional, structural composite material to maximize mission payload. To meet this need, ASI will develop structural c ...
