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. Optimizing Human-Automation Team Workload through a Non-Invasive Detection System

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: ST16C003

    In this project, Sonalysts will team with the University of North Dakota to establish the feasibility of a deployable, unobtrusive suite of sensors and data processing approaches collectively known as Cognitively-Oriented Physiological Indicators of Load, Operational performance, and Tension (CO-PILOT). CO-PILOT will provide real-time indicators of operator state that can be used to inform adaptiv ...

  2. Flexible and Robust Miniature Guidance & Navigation System

    SBC: nodein            Topic: SB151006

    The Flexible and Robust Guidance and Navigation in this proposal uses vision-based sensors and an innovative adaptive nonlinear optimization-based sensor fusion method. Phase II will test navigation performance by collecting data sets in various visual environments and evaluating them using standardized benchmarks. Results will also be compared to standardized datasets. An innovative hybrid dense/ ...

  3. Flexible & Robust Optical Guidance & Navigation System

    SBC: nodein            Topic: SB151006

    Our Flexible Optical Guidance and Navigation System (FOGNS) is capable of reliable navigation in widely varying visual conditions using a suite of small size, low weight, power and low-cost sensors. Visual odometry, Optical Flow and low-cost Inertial sensing data are fused into a single navigation solution with an accurate measure of uncertainty. Sophisticated, yet computationally feasible algorit ...

  4. Superconducting Nanowire Single-Photon Detectors

    SBC: Active Optoelectronics            Topic: SB141001

    Our objective is to design and build a compact system that provides turnkey readiness for commercial and defense use of SNSPDs. Conventional SNSPDs face several limits that lead to tradeoffs between detection efficiency, bandwidth, dark count rate, jitter and operating temperature, and therefore prevent simultaneous realization of DARPA desired parameters in one device. We propose that amorphous N ...

  5. Novel schemes for highly reliable aerospace electromechanical primary actuation systems

    SBC: Lcdrives Corp.            Topic: SB132005

    There is a need to achieve 10^-9 reliability for actuators for critical aerospace applications and this precludes single point failure for all but the simplest and most reliable electrical and mechanical components. LC Drives proposes a method of constructing a high reliability linear actuator for critical aerospace applications that is designed such that jams caused by conventional electrical a ...

  6. Improved Dried Biological Specimen Materials, Recovery and Processing for Diagnostics

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: SB112005

    The dried blood spot (DBS) method is an alternative to venipuncture. The available data indicates that the DBS method is both precise and accurate for a diverse range of compounds. We discovered that proprietary additives vastly improve extraction of proteins in DBS using electrospray. Our unexpected results appear to dramatically increase analyte recovery concentration while reducing DBS prep, an ...

  7. Improved Dried Biological Specimen Materials, Recovery and Processing for Diagnostics

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: SB112005

    Dried blood spot (DBS) analysis has gained recognition in recent years in basic science and clinical diagnostics. This impetus relies upon its numerous advantages over the collection, transport and storage of blood samples obtained by conventional venipuncture. Although there is wide-spread interest in DBS, optimization of sample collection and extraction methods, as well as, the subsequent analys ...

  8. A Chip-Scale Sensor for High-Throughput Detection of Multiple Waterborne Pathogens

    SBC: REAL-TIME ANALYZERS, INCORPORATED            Topic: SB093010

    The overall goal of this proposed program (through Phase III) is to develop a chip-scale assay that can detect, identify, and quantify the presence of Category A (or B) bioagents in water at the required sensitivity (e.g. 8000 B. anthracis spores or 50µg of ricin per liter water) within 10 minutes. During the Phase I program feasibility was demonstrated by successfully detecting the capture of l ...

  9. Deep UUV Deployed Vector Sensor System

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N06145

    The proposed research "Deep UUV Deployed Surveillance System" will identify the requirements and formulate a conceptual design for a new wide area underwater surveillance that exploits the unique attributes of deep submergence environments to detect and track atmospheric, seismic and acoustic observations. The effort will address the noise, propagation and geophysical properties of acoustic liste ...

  10. Mobile Offshore Platform for Wind Turbine Power Generation

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: SB082056

    The Department of Defense (DOD) would benefit from a persistent mobile power generating capability to support global deployments, remote basing, and disaster relief. Eliminating the need for fuel transport over long distance, a towable floating wind turbine could provide a persistent power source. The most robust configuration for this concept is an unmoored free-floating design. Such a mobile fre ...
