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. RFCode: Robust Foveated Encoding

    SBC: 21ct, Inc.            Topic: A08136

    The Robust Foveated Encoding (RFCode) Phase 1 effort will improve battlefield capabilities and situational awareness by generating a detailed design and performance analysis for applying three emerging technologies to an advanced video compression system for unreliable tactical networks. RFCode uses foveated (variable-resolution) video coding to reduce data volume while maintaining operational eff ...

  2. Time Variation of Workflow Processes to Confound Enemy Proactivity


    Accurate Automation Corporation (AAC) proposes to develop a new method for ensuring that workflow processes are opaque to the enemy. That is, the enemy cannot produce effective counter operations by leveraging knowledge of how U.S. Army institutions work. Simultaneously, the U.S. Army’s internal processes will remain transparent and understandable to coordinating units with appropriate access. ...

  3. Smart Sensor Network for Platform Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: A08150

    Acellent proposes to develop a smart structural health monitoring (SHM) sensor network system that can withstand the aggressive operations environment. It will be capable of autonomously assessing, reliably in real time, the structural integrity of ground vehicle structures and components. A new SMART Layer?hybrid consisting of an improved piezoelectric sensor/actuator configuration (utilizing th ...

  4. Measuring Learning and Development in Cross-Cultural Competence

    SBC: 361 Interactive, Llc            Topic: A07050

    Contemporary operating environments require more cross-cultural interaction than ever before. Cross-cultural competence is critical to mission success, and traditional competence frameworks do not consider the unique demands of Army Soldiers. In Phase 1, a preliminary developmental stage model of Army mission-centric competence was developed. This model describes affective, behavioral and cogni ...

  5. Diamond-like Carbon Coatings on Polymers


    In the Phase-I an innovative coating was demonstrated that provides increased resistance to abrasion and scratching, excellent optical properties and increased ballistic protection. The coating consists of a unique plasma pretreatment of the polycarbonate to improve adhesion and a combination of layers forming a grading in the mechanical properties from the soft polycarbonate to a hard overcoat. U ...

  6. Non Invasive Assessment of Intracranial Pressure and Cerebrovascular Status after Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: Active Signal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD09H02

    Given the critical need for early detection of TBI and the potentially associated increase in ICP a requirement exists for a system capable of detecting elevated ICP and TBI, especially cerebrovascular status. The requirement is for a combination small, portable, robust fieldable system, and this response to that requirement is a combination of non-invasive acoustic techniques for determining ele ...

  7. High Temperature Capacitors for Hybrid Electric Vehicles

    SBC: Active Signal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A08154

    Active Signal Technologies, in collaboration with Novacap, Alfred University and Lockheed Martin, proposes in Phase I to build a compact-design 700-V, 50 μF high temperature capacitor module. The module is populated with 1 μF capacitors based on a newly developed sodium bismuth titanate (NBT) dielectric with outstanding electrical performance to 200°C and beyond. Its novel design allo ...

  8. Lightweight, Modular, High-Rate Data Recorder

    SBC: Active Signal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A09109

    Active Signal Technologies proposes to develop a compact, modular, high-rate data recorder that will record high quality data from an entire exposure event. The design will use hardware logic and single-port, static volatile random-access memory to minimize power required. The system will have a microcontroller that will be in standby mode until an event occurs and will remain on only for the ti ...

  9. Wideband Filter Networks for Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) Size, Weight, and Power (SWAP) Reduction

    SBC: Active Spectrum, Inc.            Topic: A07086

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of mass producing robust miniaturized, tunable narrowband preselect filters in the 500-2000 MHz bands for fielded JTRS platforms. In the 500 MHz – 2000 MHz frequency bands, we proposed a tunable 2-pole narrowband (30 MHz) preselect filter. Active Spectrum, Inc.’s filters represent a proven, significant improvement over the state ...

  10. Automated Manufacturing of Composite Materials inc

    SBC: ADC Acquisition Co. dba Automated Dynamics            Topic: A09031

    Automated fiber placement (AFP) of thermoplastic (TP) composite jackets around large caliber gun barrels and railgun cores has enabled a dramatic increase in lethality while meeting aggressive maneuver requirements. Automated Dynamics has played a central role in the development of TP AFP technology and its use for this application. There is a continuing need to improve safety, temperature capab ...
