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. Software Defined Wideband DREX Receiver

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA09T003

    To realize next generation missile defense radar systems with a significant improvement in performance requires more cost effective system implementations. Software defined radar (SDR) technologies together with field programmable gate array (FPGA) implementations promise reusable and low cost DREX multichannel receivers in smaller form factors. Real time firmware reconfiguration enables radar mod ...

  2. Open System Manufacturing of Large Sensing/Weapons Platforms

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: SB102005

    In order to maintain our nation’s technological superiority on air, sea and land, we must respond quicker to emerging threats and reduce the cost of major sensing platforms. Every DoD platform developed nowadays contains at least one sensor, whether it be RF, EO/IR, or acoustic. In fact, in a lot of recent developments, the platform is built around the sensor and exists only to support the senso ...

  3. Multi-Band Airborne SAR/GMTI System Development

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: AF093138

    A multi-band airborne synthetic aperture radar and ground moving-target indicating (SAR/GMTI) radar system will be designed and developed that will utilize multiple frequency bands to improve the radar imaging and target detection performance in various clutter environments. Applied Radar’s existing wideband digital receiver/exciter (DREX) hardware is inherently capable of supporting radar appli ...

  4. Wideband Multi-Channel AESA Manifolds

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: N101020

    Multi-channel array manifolds are required for wideband AESA applications. In modern solid-state AESA arrays, MMIC-based T/R modules generally utilize digitally-controlled phased shifters to steer the beam on transmit and receive. The given phase value is only accurate at one frequency, and so for wide bandwidths of several hundred MHz (at X-band for example), the beam does not get formed properly ...

  5. Power-Efficient Adaptive-and-Robust Link OFDM (PEARL-OFDM)

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: N093218

    Key obstacles to extending OFDM to wireless links and networks at high-frequencies and dynamic channels are inherent low performance to Doppler and power amplifiers operation with high back-off. Other significant obstacles are multipath and impulsive noise. PEARL-OFDM combines a layered architecture with technologies that mitigate such obstacles and enable full-range rates that maximizes connectiv ...

  6. Improved Tele-Control for Manipulator Equipped Unmanned Ground Vehicles

    SBC: Autonomous Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A09186

    Under the Phase I program, ASI will examine the available technologies for improving manipulation, create preliminary designs of how to integrate these technologies on current platforms (the Talon and Packbot), and simulate the effects of improved dynamic modeling and sensor feedback on manipulator performance. The deliverables for Phase I will thus be: • Preliminary design of retrofit packa ...

  7. Semi-Autonomous Manipulator Control Using 2D and 3D Scene Recognition

    SBC: Autonomous Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A09187

    Current mobile manipulators require extensive operator involvement to perform even simple tasks, such as opening a door, picking up an object, or emptying a container. “Fly-the-gripper” algorithms have been implemented to free the user from specifying joint velocities when a desired x, y, z gripper path is desired (Berkemeier, Poulson, et al. 2008), (Johnston, et al. 2008). Further, â ...

  8. Materials and Device Modeling to Reduce Cost and Time to Exploit Relaxor Piezoelectric Single Crystals in Navy SONAR Transducers

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N08061

    We propose the development of a compact broadband underwater cylindrical transducers with integrated tuning networks and power amplifiers for Mobile Acoustic Counter Measures. There is a need for cost effective transducers that are broadband and have broad-beam coverage. BTech has designed and built improved counter measure transducers as well as acoustic modem transducers using both PZT materials ...

  9. Cost-Effective PiezoCrystal Transducer Assembly Technologies

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N101092

    The design and development of piezocrystal sonar transducers is a challenging multidisciplinary and technological effort that spans many fields and skill sets. We look to extend and improve our transducer assembly technologies to reduce cost and implementation time for sonar technology transition and in particular our methods for Active-Passive single crystal ring development and fiber glass wrapp ...

  10. A Superior Energy Storage Device Using Lithium Anode and Thermally Stable Cathode

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N101070

    This SBIR Phase I proposal from Technology Holding LLC seeks to develop an advanced energy storage system to integrate with renewable energy systems. The high energy density can be achieved by using lithium anode and thermally stable cathode materials. Solid electrolytes are expected to be far less reactive with any cathode material compared to liquid, organic electrolytes. Research in Phase I wil ...
