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. A Novel Low Cost, High Efficiency, Algal Biomass Harvest and Dewatering Technology for Biodiesel Production

    SBC: ACENT LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: 26d

    Biodiesel produced from microalgae has been identified as a potential source of affordable renewable fuel. This project addresses one aspect of the algal biodiesel production chain: development of low-cost, high-efficiency algal biomass harvest and dewatering technology. The approach involves the development and verification of system models of the entire algae-to-biodiesel production chain. These ...

  2. Innovative Low-cost, In-situ Consolidation Head for Complex Geometry Thermoplastic Fiber Placement

    SBC: ADC Acquisition Co. dba Automated Dynamics            Topic: N08135

    xxxIn-situ fiber placement is able to offer a wide and robust processing approach that is well suited for many aerospace structures. Flat, single curvature and large radius complex curvature parts can be effectively handled with the current in-situ techniques. However, there are limitations associated with this process. The use of a rigid metallic consolidation applicator is routinely used in t ...

  3. Innovative Approaches to the Fabrication of Composite Rotary Wing Main Rotor Blade Spars

    SBC: ADC Acquisition Co. dba Automated Dynamics            Topic: N08026

    Commonly, composite rotor blade spars are fabricated by hand layups or other non-optimized, not fully automated procedures. These methods are labor intensive and require many de-bulking steps, making them expensive. The results are often inconsistent due to the nature of work done by hand. In our process, continuous graphite fiber reinforced thermoset prepreg tape will be used in conjunction wi ...

  6. Binaural Capture and Synthesis of Ambient Soundscapes

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: AF081015

    Advanced Acoustic Concepts (AAC) will develop a reliable, validated, and fully documented system for digitally recording ambient soundscapes and resynthesize the desired soundscape for binaural presentation to human listeners via headphones. The system will take advantage of the established acoustical signal processing technology of AAC and the state-of-the-art psychoacoustics research and audio r ...

  7. Unmanned Vehicle Security System

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: N07210

    Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs) deployed beyond the direct observation of the host Littoral Combat Ship are susceptible to significant threats due to vandalism, piracy, and/or fouling from fishing gear. Advanced Acoustic Concepts (AAC) and Accurate Automation Corporation propose a multi-sensor fusion and dissuasion solution that is robust and cost effective for protection of USVs. This Unmanned V ...

  8. Acoustic Detection and Verification of Intrusions against Military Facilities

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: A08113

    Large military installations and training complexes are difficult to secure because they consist of largely remote and/or unoccupied areas that are open to trespassers and contain numerous sites of localized high-value assets that are vulnerable to vandalism. An acoustic surveillance system that can recognize human activity and provide much needed intelligence information to security officers coul ...

  9. Biologically Based Non-Language Speech Sound Detection

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: AF071079

    This proposal addresses the application of new acoustic processing technologies to automatically identify and eliminate non-language speech sounds as a pre-processing stage to improve audio processing. Non-language speech sounds (coughing, breathing, ‘ah,’ ‘uhmm’) make up a large part of natural human language use, but contemporary speech recognition data preparation relies on hand-labelin ...

  10. Concrete Environmental Monitoring Sensor

    SBC: Advanced Design Consulting USA, Inc.            Topic: 07FH3

    With infrastructure costs escalating it is becoming essential to monitor the health of concrete structures so that timely maintenance can maximize their useful lives. This SBIR will demonstrate the feasibility of using a passive sensor, embedded within concrete, to measure mositure, temperature, pH and concentrations of chlorides. It will provide critical data for evaluating concrete performance s ...
