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. Particle Sampling System Designed to Simulate Aging of Aircraft Exhaust Plumes

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: AF06302

    ARI is developing an aircraft exhaust sampling system that transitions condensable species to the condensed phase in a manner that mimics what happens when the exhaust is emitted into the atmosphere. Standard engine-exit plane measurements are not suitable for these volatile particles because they form downstream of the aircraft as the exhaust plume mixes with ambient air and cools. Downstream mea ...

  2. Automated Foveating Sensor Technology

    SBC: Cyan Systems            Topic: AF071155

    Current large format sensors are limited in reaching their full potential on compact platforms due to the need to have large image processors and support electronics to process the data coming off the FPA at very high data rates. Seeking to match the brain's computational efficiency, we draw inspiration from its neural circuits to improve the bandwidth efficiency and acuity of large format imagin ...

  3. Advanced Lightweight Vehicle Components and Materials

    SBC: GS Engineering Inc.            Topic: SOCOM07001

    The additional weight of add-on armor systems and extra equipment required by the fighting force, coupled with IED tactical warfare has negatively impacted the performance of tactical wheeled vehicles. This is demonstrated by overstressed suspension systems, higher vehicle center of gravity, increased rollovers, and reduced performance on all tactical vehicles. It has been especially prevalent in ...

  4. Shipboard Laser Detection


    Naval vessels in port or operating close to shore can be threatened by rocket propelled munitions, mortars, or artillery systems that incorporate laser targeting systems (or target designators). The use of laser warning receivers (LWR) which can provide precise pointing to the illuminating laser source can enable valuable situation awareness and targeting for counter-fire to protect the threatened ...

  5. Design and Development of High Performance Carbon Nanostructure based Multicolor Imagers

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA04020

    Next generation EO/IR Nanosensors are needed for a variety of Military Systems Applications. These include UV, Visible, NIR, SWIR, MWIR and LWIR bands. Magnolia as part of the proposed Phase II SBIR Program plans to design, model and develop carbon nanostructures based detector array for next generation multicolor IR imaging applications. The key components of the Program will include evaluating ...

  6. Modeling Encumbrance Effects of Ground Soldier Systems on Soldier Performance

    SBC: Technology Solutions Experts, Inc.            Topic: A07159

    A wealth of studies involving the effects of army materiel on ground soldier task performance exist, but the flow of data from these studies into ground soldier simulations is slow. Modeling these effects in a ground soldier simulation is important, because it takes into account factors that directly impact the ground soldier. Through continuing research, the Task-related Effects of Encumbrance ...

  7. Automated Identification Technology System (AIT) to Identify, Track and Monitor the Condition of Medical Supply Items from Point of Origin to End User

    SBC: Eigent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A07144

    At the present time there is no system to monitor the progress of medical shipments to and within the combat theater other than those pallets that are tagged with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags in compliance with the current DoD mandate for tagging pallets and cases. Full implementation of the DoD mandate to tag all pallets and cases of Class VIII (Medical) materiel is not expected to ...

  8. DC-ATR: Distributed Co-operative ATR Using Low Resolution Mobile Sensors

    SBC: IROBOT CORP.            Topic: N07T024

    The iRobot team proposes to develop a deployable pedestrian detection module that will analyze a monocular video stream and identify all instances of visible pedestrians. To address the problem of pedestrian detection, we will employ data-driven approaches that help recognize specific appearance and motion patterns generated by moving humans. We will also develop detection algorithms that can leve ...

  9. Ballistic Missile System Composite Materials and Structures

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA04041

    The current use of polymer matrix composite materials aboard U.S. Navy ships has been limited to mainly exterior parts such as DDX topside structures, sonar bow domes, towed array fairings, diving planes, control surfaces and the prototype submarine sail dome for VA class submarines. There has been increasing interest in the development of composite materials for applications inside ships and sub ...

  10. A High Speed Towed Magnetic Array for In-Road Detection of Improvised Explosive Devices Employing Optimized Magnetic Map Differencing

    SBC: GEOPHEX, LTD.            Topic: A07169

    The goal of this project is to design, build, and test an active electromagnetic induction (EMI) sensor array for detecting and characterizing IEDs. At low frequencies (below a few kHz), an EMI sensor is a magnetometer that primarily responds to susceptibility targets (i.e., ferrous objects). The main difference is that, while a magnetometer uses the earth’s field as the illuminating source, an ...
