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. Automated Launch and Recovery of Small, Untethered Unmanned Underwater Vehicles from Unmanned Surface Vehicles

    SBC: Advanced Technology And Research Corporation            Topic: N07T037

    As a follow-on effort to a phase I STTR, a program is proposed for the detail design, fabrication, integration, and in-water demonstration testing of an automated Launch, Recovery, On-board Handling, and Servicing System (LROHSS) for hosting Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) aboard Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs). In the base phase of the program, the design concept shall be carried forward in ...

  2. Low-profile air-cooled heat sinks for GMR systems

    SBC: ATEC, Inc.            Topic: N08223

    ATEC, in collaboration with the Smart and Small Thermal Systems Laboratory at the University of Maryland, proposes the development of low-profile, air-cooled heat sinks for use in cooling electronic modules, such as the Ground Mobile Radio communications systems. These heat sinks will be much smaller than other air-cooled heat sinks because of the very high thermal efficiency of the micro-groove s ...

  3. Perceptually-informed Virtual Environment (VE) (PerceiVE)

    SBC: Anthrotronix, Inc.            Topic: N07T028

    While a significant research has been conducted examining the transfer of training from VEs. Currently fidelity requirements are determined by performance measurements and subjective evaluations. It is often difficult to identify the specific design components that directly relate to transfer of training improvements. Furthermore, this method of design focuses on trial and error, and is therefor ...

  4. Modeling and Simulation (M&S) of a Multiple Beam Inductive Output Tube (MB-IOT)

    SBC: BEAM-WAVE RESEARCH INC            Topic: N08049

    The multiple beam inductive output tube (MB IOT) will play a vital role as a high-power microwave source to drive the accelerator cavities used in future free electron laser directed energy weapons systems. There is a great deal that is still unknown about the complex beam wave interaction inherent in conventional IOTs; their development has largely been a cut-and-try endeavor due to a lack of ava ...

  5. Microfabricated Circuits for Sheet Electron Beam Amplifiers in the Upper Millimeter-Wave Spectrum

    SBC: BEAM-WAVE RESEARCH INC            Topic: N07101

    The Phase-II technical objectives are the finalization of the circuit designs and the actual micro-fabrication and testing of the circuits, which are a critical component of any amplifiers and whose function is to convert the kinetic energy of the electron beam into RF power. The Phase-II work will build on the technical foundation established by the Phase-I feasibility study of the sheet-beam amp ...

  6. Non-toxic process for depositing high density, corrosion-resistant aluminum alloys on complex geometry components

    SBC: ENIGMATICS, INC.            Topic: N07115

    This SBIR Program is aimed at the development of a non-toxic alternative to cadmium electroplating for corrosion protection of a variety of high-strength steel aerospace components including landing gear and other structural components. The thermal spray process will be optimized to deposit high density, corrosion resistant aluminum and aluminum alloy coatings on high-strength steel and configured ...

  7. Compressive Sensing in the Tactical Underwater Environment

    SBC: Fastvdo Llc            Topic: N09T019

    The relatively opaque and inhospitable ocean medium presents unique and formidable challenges for the task of sensing & recognizing underwater objects. Impenetrable to most forms of electromagnetic radiation, the sea yields a glimpse of its hidden structure mainly through acoustic and optical means, which is the reason that sonar sensors and optical cameras are widely used in the tactical underwat ...

  8. Optical flow and electroreception for underwater motion coordination and homing

    SBC: DeepQuest LLC            Topic: N09T024

    The objective of the proposed effort is to demonstrate the feasibility of applying bio-inspired optical and electric sensing and data fusion to the problem of multi-vehicle survey/surveillance and single-vehicle mine neutralization using low-cost disposable vehicles.

  9. Development of Complex Shock and Vibration Model and Reliability Prediction Tool for Pb-free Alloys

    SBC: DFR SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: OSD08M03

    The reliability and performance of Pb-free solders in harsh mechanical environments is not sufficiently understood for use in mission critical applications. Environmental regulations and commercial pressure has reduced the availability of Sn/Pb based com

  10. Reliability Analysis and Prediction tool for Reballed BGAs in DoD Environments

    SBC: DFR SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: OSD08M01

    Ball grid array (BGA) commercial off the shelf (COTS) parts with SnPb solder balls are becoming obsolete. The uncertainty of Pb-free solder reliability in severe environments has led to a significant upsurge in reballing within the DoD supply chain. How
