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. Non-contact sea water optical attenuation meter

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N093205

    Navy mine-hunting assets such as the Airborne Laser Mine Detection System (ALMDS) depend on the penetration of laser light into seawater for detection and classification of sea mines. Their performance depends upon local water properties which may be highly variable, especially in littoral waters. During this Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project Physical Sciences Inc. will develop a ...

  2. Hull Contamination Measurement

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N101066

    We propose to develop a device to identify hull surface contamination, such as lubricants and amines formed during the coating process, using a measurement technique that can be adapted to a ship construction environment. The method we have demonstrated in our Phase I program is laser light scattering, specifically standoff Raman scattering, to provide a noncontact, high-speed, accurate method of ...

  3. RF Microplasmas for Energetic Species Generation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF10BT08

    ABSTRACT: Physical Sciences Inc. and Tufts University propose to apply innovative, ground-breaking RF microplasma technology to the development of devices to generate ozone and other energetic species for a variety of commercial, military, and research applications. The proposed work follows from our successful Phase I effort, which achieved the first implementation of a prototype single-board l ...

  4. Optical Hull Surface Contaminant Detection System

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N101066

    This SBIR Phase II project will develop a laboratory benchtop demonstration system for non-contact optical hull contaminant detection and classification. The Phase I research identified optical signatures that can be exploited to both detect and differentiate the materials of interest. We will use that technical approach to build a prototype benchtop detection system and test it with samples that ...

  5. ADS FORCE PHASE II: Assessment and Development Strategies FOr team Rapid Cognitive Effectiveness

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD10CR4

    Current military combat operations emphasize the use of teams, who are often expected to rapidly deploy together. This rapid deployment cycle is especially true for military transition teams. Such teams must quickly become highly functioning, as characterized by high levels of team cognitive readiness. To address the need for newly formed teams to rapidly become cognitively ready and effective, th ...

  6. Satellite Ground truth Information Fusion- SatGIF II

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: AF103116

    ABSTRACT: On-orbit satellite characterization is critically important for space situational awareness (SSA). Determining attitude, configuration, and even identification can be challenging despite numerous sensing capabilities to provide information. Better access and extrapolation of ground-truth data (captured pre-launch) are proving to be useful for on-orbit assessment. The Satellite Ground ...

  7. A Tool for Agent-Based System Produced Emergent Networks (ASPEN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB112004

    Social media is an increasingly important way for people to communicate, but interpreting the large and complex social networks that emerge from social media is challenging. A promising approach is to build synthetic networks based on realistic behaviors that mimic the form and structure of real networks, and then infer behaviors that underlie the real networks from the models used to generate the ...

  8. High Laser Damage Threshold, Broadband Anti-Reflection Treatment Based on Surface Relief Microstructures

    SBC: TELAZTEC LLC            Topic: AF103190

    ABSTRACT: In a Phase I project, the problems with optical performance and low threshold for damage limiting the advancement of mid-infrared (mid-IR) wavelength high power laser systems based on metal-ion doped chalcogenide materials, was addressed through the replacement of multi-layer thin-film coatings with optically functional surface relief microstructures. Anti-reflection (AR) textures, kno ...

  9. IMPACTS: A tool for the Improvement And Measurement of Perceptual, Attentional, and Critical Thinking Skills

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N08062

    Problem: Marines in the field rely heavily on their ability to survey the human landscape for potential insurgents and other individuals of interest. To support this activity, the Marines' Combat Hunter program trains "profiling", a set of skills used by military and civilian experts to read people and their interactions in complex environments. However, the Combat Hunter program has several criti ...

  10. Hybrid Battery / Capacitor Power for Increased Power and Energy Density and Safety

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N103214

    Improvements in rechargeable battery energy, power, cycle life and safety are required for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program. During Phase II, Giner, Inc. will use its advanced lithium-ion hybrid cell chemistry developed in Phase I, together with improvements in packaging designs to achieve the necessary energy and power densities to meet Naval Aviation requirements. A batch-level coating meth ...
