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. High Z-Conductivity Composite Structures for Low-Observable Aircraft Heat Rejection (1001-951)

    SBC: TRITON SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF131-009

    ABSTRACT: Triton Systems Inc., in combination with our partner Northrop-Grumman Corporation proposes to develop a high performance composite heat exchanger system that can be integrated into airframe structures of unmanned and manned systems to provide thermal management for aircraft systems and/or mission payload. The key ingredient of the composite heat exchanger is a novel technique for pierc ...

  2. Micromachined Fused Silica Pump Combiners with Signal Feed Throughput

    SBC: Translume            Topic: AF131-011

    ABSTRACT: We propose to fabricate a high performance signal and pump combiner for high-power fiber lasers and fiber amplifiers. We will use advanced glass micromachining processes that will alleviate the fabrication challenges associated with either tapered fused fiber couplers or side-pumped fused coupler. A central robust fused silica structure will be micromachined. The pumps and signal fib ...

  3. Aimpoint Maintenance of Ground Targets by Airborne Laser Systems

    SBC: Tempest Technologies            Topic: AF131-014

    ABSTRACT: Laser-based directed energy systems are often identified as being game-changing technologies in advancing the mission of the Air Force. Precision efforts, minimal collateral damage, rapid response, and nearly unlimited ammunition are compelling advantages to laser weapon systems. Among the primary challenges to development and deployment is beam control, identified in the 2007 report ...

  4. EDA for Strategic Radiation Hardened Precision Analog IC Obsolescence Mitigation

    SBC: Milanowski & Associates, Inc            Topic: AF131-057

    ABSTRACT: This proposed program leverages mature semiconductor TCAD and EDA tools. These tools are widespread in modern analog IC design and already possess capabilities applicable to obsolete part replacement. Our plan for detailed R & D activity emphasizes tool adaptations/improvements for simplifying, automating, and accelerating the overall design retargeting task, the application of radh ...

  5. Automated Analog Electronics Design Tools for Obsolete Parts

    SBC: Ridgetop Group, Inc.            Topic: AF131-057

    ABSTRACT: Ridgetop Group will develop design tools to facilitate fabrication of obsolete, radiation-hardened, precision analog components. The methodology that is developed and validated during the nine-month Phase I SBIR program will be transitioned into an easy-to-use prototype software tool during Phase II. The Ridgetop EDA tool integrates well-known commercial EDA solutions to support radia ...

  6. W and V band Airborne SATCOM Transceiver

    SBC: QuinStar Technology, inc.            Topic: AF131-061

    ABSTRACT: The proposed work is to develop a high integration, single transmit, multiple receive, digital beamforming, airborne SATCOM transceiver. This can be accomplished by using advanced GaN technologies for the transmitter SSPA and InP technologies for the receiver LNA. Furthermore, we propose to integrate most of the receiver functions (e.g. the LNA, mixer, etc.) on a single InP chip. This w ...

  7. High Efficiency Space Infrared Data Compression

    SBC: UtopiaCompression, Corporation            Topic: AF131-070

    ABSTRACT: Space based Infrared (IR) system generates massive amount of IR surveillance data, which strains the limited communication bandwidth, storage and computational resources onboard space or airborne platforms. This poses a great challenge, especially as the spectral and spatial resolutions of sensors keep increasing and more of the sensors are deployed. In this project, UtopiaCompression ( ...

  8. High Compression of Infrared Data

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: AF131-070

    ABSTRACT: Data compression schemes generally fall into two main categories: lossless and lossy. Lossless schemes promise to provide an uncompressed file which is identical before and after compression. As lossless schemes must be able to reconstruct every feature of the original file they often provide modest compression ratios. In fact, it is easy to show that no lossless compression scheme ...

  9. High Resolution ADC on an Application Specific Integrated Circuit (HRADC-ASIC)

    SBC: Applied Technology Associates            Topic: AF131-073

    ABSTRACT: Performance of space-based digital control systems is limited by the low resolution of available radiation-hardened Analog to Digital Converters (ADCs) and Digital to Analog Converters (DACs). Applied Technology Associates (ATA) proposes to develop a High Resolution ADC on an Application Specific Integrated Circuit (HRADC-ASIC) that provides: Up to 16-22 bits of resolution with corre ...
