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. Autonomous, Real-time, 3D Change Detection System

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: A07211

    Aculight Corporation, together with Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control (LMMFC), proposes a novel system approach that uses a mature 3D imaging laser radar (LADAR) design and leverages existing 3D image processing algorithms to meet the needs for an autonomous, real-time, 3D change detection system. The LADAR imaging system usies a compact, eye-safe, high-peak power, short pulse fiber laser ...

  2. Photonic Crystal Development for High Power Lasers

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: A07191

    The Phase I effort will show the feasibility of reaching 10+kW average power in Yb-doped, photonic waveguide amplifiers emitting near-diffraction-limited output beams. We will show that this innovative technology permits us to avoid nonlinearities and thermo-optical fracture, while producing near diffraction-limited output in the multi-kilowatt regime. By the conclusion of the Phase I effort, we ...

  3. Standoff Explosives Detection

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: A07117

    Aculight Corporation and ITT have teamed to develop a brassboard Raman sensor technology providing a clear path to a fully integrated sensor capable of detecting trace amounts of explosives at 30+ meters. Because of the maturity of the Aculight pulsed fiber laser technology and the ITT family of Raman sensors, the time to deployment of the proposed standoff sensor desired by the Army is minimal.

  4. Fiber Laser Beam Combining for High Efficiency and Light-Weight HEL Systems

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: A06208

    High Energy Lasers (HELs) are required for a variety of military directed energy applications including area protection against rockets, artillery, and mortars (RAM). A typical laser enabling these applications should provide at least 10 to 100 kW of output power with excellent beam quality. Moreover, to provide maximum benefit on the modern battlefield, the HEL system should be portable, feature ...

  5. Novel Representations of Elevation Data

    SBC: ANDREWS SPACE, INC.            Topic: A07123

    Andrews space proposes two pronged approach to reduce the size of elevation data files that need to be stored and transmitted. The first approach is a better compression algorithm that works well on discontinuous data although is less effective on smooth data. This is the opposite of traditional compression methods, which are not effective at compressing discontinuous data such as the elevation in ...

  6. A Multiplexed Assay for the Detection of Pathogens of Military Importance in Sand Flies

    SBC: Inbios International Inc            Topic: A07150

    The objective of this study is to develop a robust, field grade, screening assay for the detection of both leishmania parasites and/or sand fly fever viruses directly in sand flies. The test will utilize a multi-line lateral flow (dipstick) chromatography incorporated into a cassette that enables the simultaneous screening of both analytes. The proposed immunochromatographic assay would be a very ...

  7. A Point-of-Care Assay for the Detection of Spotted-fever group and Typhus group Rickettsia.

    SBC: Inbios International Inc            Topic: A07153

    The objective of this study is to develop a robust, field-grade, screening assay for the differential diagnosis of infection by Spotted Fevers (e.g. Rocky Mountain Spotted fever, Boutonneuse fever) and Typhus (Epidemic and Endemic forms) causing rickettsial bacteria. Scrub Typhus (Orientia tsutsugamushi) will be used as a reference control and may be incorporated into the final assay. The test wil ...

  8. Off-Grid Pallet Chilling for Bottled Water

    SBC: INFINIA CORPORATION            Topic: A07163

    The Natick soldier center has identified the need for maintaining soldier drinking water at a palatable temperature of less than 60°F. Individual pallets of bottled water must be kept cool near feeding and resting areas, but the cooling must be provided independent of an electrical grid. Infinia Corporation proposes a practical design concept for a Stirling pallet chiller that will produce up to ...

  9. Command and Control of small robotics assets


    This SBIR proposal investigates a solution for Command and Control of Small Robotic Assets. Because of the location and tempo of military activities, standard computing equipment and their interfaces fail to support small units in their use of robotic assets. Current requirements for command and control of Unmanned Vehicles (UVs) do not take into consideration the highly dynamic and mobile conditi ...

  10. Personal Insect Repellent Device

    SBC: STERLING INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: A07151

    Sterling International Inc. proposes to develop a light-weight, portable, water-proof “Personal Insect Repellent Device”, impregnated with a repellent(s) and/or insecticide(s) vapor, that can be attached to a solider, or an individual soldier's uniform, to provide long-lasting, passive, whole-body, spatial protection against bites from insect disease vectors (e.g. sand flies and mosquitoes) an ...
