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. Standardized Hardware Independent Framework for Active Sensing

    SBC: SAMRAKSH COMPANY, THE            Topic: SB082033

    Networks of short-range wireless sensors can yield cost-effective solutions in diverse military and commercial settings, especially where occlusions render long-range sensors operationally ineffective. The current state-of-the-art in application design, however, falls short of realizing cost-effectiveness. We propose to address this problem via an open framework of sensing, high efficiency commu ...

  3. A Spectrally Dynamic Berth Light for Active Circadian Cycle Management

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: SB082055

    Energy Focus has envisioned a Generation 2 berth light LED system that incorporates an illumination spectrum consistent with the latest research in spectrally tuned adjustment and resetting of circadian rhythms. Research shows that the human eye contains specialized receptors for 420nm-560nm light which signal the body to suppress melatonin production. In the absence of this light, the body is si ...

  4. Explosion-Proof Solid State Lighting Fixture for Extreme Environments

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: SB082054

    The project will develop a solid-state alternative to the inefficient, excessively hot and maintenance-intensive incandescent explosion-proof lighting fixtures used by the Navy. Solid-State Lighting using Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) is now technically feasible but several difficult challenges remain to be overcome in order to deploy them in certain Navy applications. To achieve the long lifeti ...

  7. Innovative Approaches to Low Power, Sub-Threshold Electronic Circuits

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SB082045

    Recently, the DoD has become interested in technologies that can maximize processing energy efficiency and power savings, while maintaining reasonable performance. It particular, sub-threshold digital circuit operation is of the up-most interest for ultra-low power (ULP) military processing systems. In Phase I, a generic ULP field programmable gate array (FPGA) architecture capable of both sub-th ...

  10. Autonomous Airborne Chemical/Biological Cloud Detection Sensor

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082011

    Detection of chemical and biological warfare agents in a real-world setting is an increasingly urgent problem. Many of the current state-of-the-art sensors are aqueous based and require large biomolecules, such as antibodies, to achieve binding of the target molecule and subsequent reporting of the binding event. These technical hurdles are a drawback when considering deployment of these technol ...
