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. Light Weight High Voltage Power System

    SBC: 3tech Corp            Topic: N/A

    3Tech proposes in the phase I effort to provide a detailed feasibility report analyzing the existing high voltage DC power supplies in the communications aircraft for weight reduction possibilities. In addition, 3Tech proposes a novel multiphase High Voltage Power Converter to Navy to power the Radio Frequency Power Amplifiers in the aircraft. The power converter is based on modern high frequen ...

  3. A Low Cost GPS/Inertial Navigation System

    SBC: Artech Assoc.            Topic: N/A

    Attempting to reduce cost and improvce performance, the development of GPS-inertial system continues. Several component tradeoffs are under consideration. We believe, however, that the system design should be included in the development. A modified configuration will bring excellent cost benefits. In addition, a problem exists with performance degradation of existing systems in the battlefiel ...

  4. Adaptive Data Compression for Efficient File Transport Over Wireless Networks

    SBC: Artery Communication            Topic: N/A

    Because of the scarce network bandwidth available on the wireless links, data compression plays a critical role in the wireless system design. We propose to evaluate existing public-domain and commercial lossless data compression packages in the context of wireless networking. The specific criteria used include compression efficiency, compression speed, memory usage, and ease of being incorporat ...

  5. Flexible, Visible/IR Flat Panel Electrochromics Based on Poly(Diphenyl Amine) and Related Conducting Polymers

    SBC: Ashwin-Ushas Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We have in recent work developed large-area flat panel displays, for a classified military application, which allow for high dynamic range/color contrast in the Visible (70% Transmission dynamic range), mid- and far-IR (up to 90% Reflectance range). The displays are thin film (2 mm) flexible devices based on poly(diphenyl amine) and structurally related Conducting Polymers (CPs . A uniqe design an ...

  6. Chemical Analysis in a Planar Geometry: Elements of a Functionally Integrated System

    SBC: BIOARRAY SOLUTIONS            Topic: N/A

    Bio Array Solutions (BAS) proposes to apply its novel platform technology of light-controlled Electrokinetic Assembly of Particles near Surfaces (LEAPS) to develop an analytical system in a planar, "on-chip" format. Combining AC (and/or DC) electric fields with interactive light control, LEAPS provides a tool set of fundamental operations to control the transport and positioning of particles and ...

  8. Vortex Wake Control Using Smart Structures Technology

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    Control of trailing vortex wakes is an important challenge for both military and civilian applications. Ingestion of concentrated vortices in propellers can lead to undesirable noise in submarines, while the encounter of aircraft wakes with following aircraft presents a significant safety hazard that limits capacity at all major U.S. airports. This proposal involves an assessment of the feasibilit ...

  9. Individual blade control for helicopter rotor blade one/rev vibration reduction

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    Helicopter vibration due to nonidentical inertial and aerodynamic properties of rotor blades continues to plague Army aviation maintenance personnel. This vibration manifests itself at the rotor rotational frequency, and is currently controlled through the addition of blade root and tip weights and the bending of trim tabs. Application of Individual Blade Control (IBC) offers the promise of automa ...

  10. An Advanced Aerodynamic Module for Flight Simulation Including Unsteady Aerodynamics and Wake Distortion Effects

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    An improved computer module for representing rotor flow field effects on flight dynamics response is proposed for development. This model extends finite-state dynamic inflow models to address current limitations in predicting rotorcraft off-axis response to control inputs. The software module also includes features for representing rotor operation in the vortex ring state. The model is novel ...
