The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. A Variable Pulse Width, Voltage, and Repetition Frequency IGBT-based High Power Radio Frequency Source Driver

    SBC: Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N132129

    The United States Navy is interested in developing small vessel mounted and man-portable directed energy weapons. One key technology in this endeavor is the development of high power radio frequency (HPRF) sources. While much work is being done to advance the state of the art in HPRF sources, the drivers for these sources have not advanced as far. To address the U.S. Navy"s need for HPRF source dr ...

  2. Scalable, Secure Associative Database

    SBC: Applied Technical Systems Inc.            Topic: N132131

    The Associative Model of Data offers a fundamentally different meta-model for data organization than the well-established relational data model. The associative model focuses on Items and Links among items rather than sets of records. We propose to compare and contrast the associative model with two closely related models, the Resource Description Framework (RDF) triple model and the Property Grap ...

  3. Safe, Large-Format Lithium Ion Batteries for Aircraft

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: AF141071

    YTP will develop technology that provides a high performance, modular Li-ion battery with: redundant safety features, safer thin, metal case cell designs; fin/micro-channel thermal control system; and an evaporating fluid system that rapidly quenches failing cells to prevent thermal runaway and fratricide. The end goal of the proposal is making a lighter, longer lasting, less expensive, safer JSF ...

  4. Forecasting of Solar Eruptions using Statistical Mechanics, Ensemble, and Bayesian Forecasting Methods

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF141108

    The technological systems on which today's war-fighters depend, reflecting today's society, are vulnerable to the effects of sudden high-energy events from our Sun. Because the propagation speed for sudden increases in X-rays from a solar flare is the speed of light, it is necessary to truly forecast these events in order to mitigate their effects; the ionospheric response and influx of ...

  5. Low-Profile, Broadband, Shear-Mode SONAR Transducer for Deep Submergence Applications

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N141066

    BTech proposes the design and development of a low-profile, broadband, shear-mode piezocrystal acoustic transducer for deep submergence applications. The Phase I effort considers evaluation of design variants of shear mode transducers with increased pressure operation/tolerance and tradeoffs associated with the same. Design feasibility is supported with calculations of expected performance and whe ...

  6. Nanosatellite to Standard Army Handheld Radio Communications System

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: A12067

    TUI proposes to complete the development of two novel technologies that will enable pico-satellites in LEO to efficiently close the link with standard issue handheld radios on the ground. The first technology is a dual-band software-defined radio (SDR) that will provide UHF SATCOM to soldiers on the ground and a unified S-band link for backhaul and spacecraft command and control. SDR-based process ...

  7. Printed Robust Electronic Sensing Systems (PRESS) for Aircraft Structural Integrity

    SBC: Quest Integrated, LLC            Topic: AF141065

    ABSTRACT: With the increasing age of current military aircraft fleets and current operational and budget environment, there is a need to increase structure reliability and availability while, at the same time, reducing maintenance costs. This is critical especially when some fleets need to be operational beyond its design life. Typical high performance military structure operates under extreme l ...

  8. Aerodynamic Decelerator for Sounding Rocket Trajectory Control

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF141081

    ABSTRACT: Systima Technologies, Inc. has developed a novel aerodynamic decelerator concept and technical approach for tailoring sounding rocket trajectories. Systima"s decelerator technology will broaden the performance range that a booster stack can achieve in order to deliver a hypersonic flight experiment within a test window of desired altitude and Mach number. During the proposed Phase I e ...

  9. Combustion Enhanced Electric Propulsion

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: AF141089

    ABSTRACT: Orbital transfer missions require a demanding combination of lightweight, flexible operation and high Thrust-to-Power (greater than 120 mN/kW) electric propulsion. Adding Neutral Entrainment (NE) to a pulsed electromagnetic thruster has the potential to dramatically increases the total Thrust-to-Power by decreasing effective plasma frozen flow and ionization losses. It also enables a ne ...

  10. High Density Carriage Technology Innovation, High Density Carriage Rotary Racks

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF141138

    ABSTRACT: The current (such as the F-35) and the next (i.e. the 6th gen) generation of attack aircraft have a fundamental constraint. To achieve low radar cross-sections, they need to carry their weapons internal to the aircraft. This creates a conflict between the size and number of weapons that can be carried by the aircraft. When the F-35 bay dimensions were originally established, the F-35 ...
