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. Variable Thrust/Specific Impulse Electrospray Propulsion

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: AF08BT09

    Yale University and Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) propose to develop a single propellant electrospray micro-thruster for space propulsion with a wide specific impulse range, from 500s at the low end to >2500s, with the goal of 10,000s, while maximizing the performance. Three key prior accomplishments have motivated the formation of this team: Yale, working with ARL has demonstrated M ...

  3. Autonomous Vehicle Awareness Sensors

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: AF083194

    AKELA is proposing to use a small, low cost, low power radar with operating parameters that can be quickly changed to explore the issues associated with the detection of moving targets from spaceborne platforms.  The radar will be used as a baseline to compare against other implementation alternatives in a simulation to investigate the trade space, and to use the trade-off results to perform a co ...

    SBC: XERIS PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this program is to develop of a clinical prototype, semi-solid drug formulation and auto-injector pen that deliver microliter volumes of a glucagon dose without reconstitution for hypoglycemic emergencies. To assess the feasibility of this objective, it is necessary to first demonstrate that glucagon can be formulated into an ultra- concentrate ...

  5. Brain-activity during sedation predicting post-sedation explicit-memory

    SBC: ABRATECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project will study electrical brain-activity measures that may be able to indicate whether or not long-term memory is occurring, under light sedation. The goal is to develop a brain-monitor to be used in the operating room to ascertain if a patient's level of anesthesia has become too light, such that the patient can experience pain, and understand what is ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: A Search Engine for Antenna Design

    SBC: X5 Systems, Inc.            Topic: SS

    This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project seeks to demonstrate feasibility of a software tool employing advanced search algorithms applied to antenna design and optimization. Current methods of designing and optimizing antennas by hand are time and labor intensive, address limited compl ...

  7. Development of a 3/6/9 MeV X-ray Generator

    SBC: Accuray Incorporated            Topic: N/A

      Accuray bases this proposal on an X-ray generator, model DX500K, designed, built, and delivered to a major contractor in December 2008 as part of the DNDO-CAARS program. Accuray`s DX500K operates at single or dual energy modes of 6 MeV and 9 MeV and interleaves between 6 MeV and 9 MeV at 400 Hz. The pulse to pulse jitter is negligible -- a major performance factor in high Z detection. The ...

  8. Aircraft Corrosion Inspection

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF083245

    Acellent Technologies, Inc. (Acellent) proposes to develop a reliable Cascading Sensor LAyer Network (CSLAN) based on Acellents SMART Layer® technology to detect and continuously monitor corrosion related damages. Multilayered metal structures in aircrafts are sometime subjected to very hostile environmental condition which are prone to develop stress corrosion cracks, pitting corrosion and other ...

  9. Health Monitoring of Composite Structures Using Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF08BT23

    The goal of the proposed project will be to develop a hybrid structural health monitoring (SHM) system that can detect both microcracks and localized damage/delamination in composite structures.  The hybrid system will combine the unique sensing capabilities of carbon nanotubes along with those of a piezoelectric sensor network to sense the location, nature and extent of damage.  This system com ...

  10. Real-time In-situ Impact and Damage Locator in Anisotropic Aerospace Structures

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF08BT27

    Acellent Technologies and Professor FG Yuen of Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering of North Carolina State University propose to develop an advanced real-time built-in diagnostic system for the monitoring and locating impacts and growing damage in anisotropic aerospace structures. The proposed technologies will provide real-time information on the integrity of structures on aircraft ...
