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. Water-washout tooling for improved high- to very-high-temperature manufacturing of composite motor cases

    SBC: Nevada Composites, Inc.            Topic: MDA14002

    Nevada Composites has developed Green-AeroSM toolinglightweight ceramic tooling that is stable under high pressure and long-duration cure cycles and can be washed out with water after cures. Tools have a composite-compatible Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE), provide tight tolerances, are free-standing, and are of affordable cost. For BMDS applications Green-AeroSM offers both improved per ...

  2. Prediction and Measurement of the Carbon Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Sierra Engineering Inc. (Sierra) believes that existing chemical kinetic models can be efficiently incorporated into commercial CFD codes to predict the mixing, pyrolysis, soot formation and carbon deposition within film cooled rocket engines. During this Phase I STTR effort we will demonstrate that this analysis capability is practical and that we can generate appropriate model validati ...

  3. Green Catalyst-free Electric Monopropellant (GEM) for Insensitive Munitions (IM) Compliance

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: MDA13032

    Continuously advancing ballistic missile threats require an interceptor missile system which has greater basing flexibility and highly advanced performance in terms of burnout velocity and Divert and Attitude Control (DACS). Liquid systems are the ideal candidate to fit this role because of higher performance than solids; however, they tend to be a significant safety risk due to toxicity, corrosi ...

  5. Controllable and Adaptable Lateral Support System

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Devices            Topic: N132143

    This SBIR Phase II effort will be aimed towards designing and testing a controllable missile lateral support system (LSS) that reacts automatically to shock and vibration inputs. A sub-scale lateral support system (LSS) assembly consisting of six jacking feet and a full-scale LSS jacking feet unit will be fabricated and tested. The electromechanically actuated LSS will offer controllable damping t ...

  6. Lateral Flow Immunoassay for Rapid Detection of Borrelia burgdorferi from Ticks

    SBC: DxDiscovery Incorporated            Topic: DHP15006

    Lyme disease is a vector-borne illness caused by infection with B. burgdorferi. Hard ticks (Ixodes spp.) acquire the spirochete from a natural reservoir of small mammals; transmission to humans occurs via the bite of an infected tick. By any measure, Lyme disease is one of the most serious emerging infectious diseases that threaten public health in the United States. New estimates from the CDC ind ...

  8. Tool to Assess State of Digital System after Electromagnetic Disruption

    SBC: Embedezyne LLC            Topic: AF151010

    ABSTRACT: Commercial off the shelf (COTS) electronic components have long been used by many companies in a wide range of industries to assist in their day to day operations. Most companies today use COTS computer workstations, servers, and networking devices in one form or fashion. While cost effective, COTS components are not required to adhere to strict Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) standa ...

  10. A Green, Safe, Multi-Pulse Solid Motor (MPM) for CubeSats

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: S302

    Today's CubeSats lack storable, green, safe propulsion options for complex science missions that may involve large Delta-V changes, proximity operations, and attitude control systems (ACS) for pointing, spin-up, and spin-down. Digital Solid State Propulsion (DSSP) is developing propulsion for CubeSats and will leverage existing research efforts into a new system for NASA. A key technology identifi ...
