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. Plasmonic Enhanced Infrared Rectennas: Energy Harvesting, Terahertz Detection and Thermal Imaging

    SBC: CoolCAD Electronics            Topic: N11AT003

    The overall goal at the end of this multi-phase program is to develop an energy harvester composed of rectenna arrays that are connected in parallel that harness significant amounts of infrared electromagnetic energy. The ultimate systems will be capable of harvesting watts, kilowatts of energy using these structures fabricated in parallel on a large scale, or for smaller scale application specifi ...

  2. Advanced Thin-film Battery Development

    SBC: FLEXEL LLC            Topic: N11AT006

    A zinc-water battery system for use in underwater environments is proposed, with an expected energy density significantly higher than lithium-ion batteries and slightly less than zinc-air batteries. The research proposed utilizes a concentrated electrolyte, which when combined with an outside water supply on a catalytic electrode surface acts as cathode of the zinc-water cell. The technology is lo ...

  3. High Fidelity Helicopter Lag Damper Model for Comprehensive Rotor Analysis

    SBC: Techno-Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N11AT010

    Rotors and their associated dynamic components operate in high-cycle and environmentally harsh conditions. Accurate rotor load predictions are crucial part of rotor analysis and design. Lag damping poses a challenge for rotor load analysis due to the difficulty of incorporating lag damper effects into comprehensive rotor analysis. The key challenge in effectively predicting the lead-lag motions an ...

  4. SCAFLE- Self Calibrating, Adaptive, Fused LIDAR/EO Sensor

    SBC: ROBOTIC RESEARCH LLC            Topic: N11AT020

    The ability to fuse electro-optical (EO) imagery with range data enhances the robustness of unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) autonomy by allowing discrimination between types of terrain that cannot be distinguished on the basis of geometry alone (non-traversable mud vs. dry soil, non-traversable rocks vs. traversable brush, etc.). Performing this fusion requires knowing both the intrinsic (optical ce ...

  5. Cognitive Ultra-low Power Sensor System (CUPSS)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N11AT021

    On the network centric battlefield, threat detection and identification remain crucial capabilities to the warfighter. For tactically relevant applications, the endurance and performance tradeoff remain the limiting factors in determining how long sensing and analytic capabilities can remain operative while unattended. In this proposal, Intelligent Automatic Inc. (IAI in collabor ...

  6. Novel Torque Sensing for Condition Based Maintenance

    SBC: Techno-Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N11AT030

    Torque sensing poses a challenge for condition based maintenance as information from the rotating component needs to be sent to the fixed frame. Slip rings may be used though implementation and reliability are areas of concern. A non-contact method of torque sensing using magnetostrictive materials can eliminate the need for a slip ring and can provide useful information for component health monit ...

  7. Portable Automated Sensor Suite for Performance and Operational Readiness Tracking (PASSPORT)

    SBC: Anthrotronix, Inc.            Topic: N11AT033

    In order to predict and optimize human performance under reduced manpower conditions, it is helpful to model aspects of physical and cognitive performance under varied conditions, highlighting tradeoffs between task time and accuracy, cost, schedule, hardware/software, and human capabilities/limitations). However, current naval human performance models such as Total Crew Model and IMPRINT have yet ...

  8. Universal, Programmable and Affordable Power Technologies for Underwater Vehicles

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N09T015

    Intelligent Automation, Inc (IAI) in collaboration with University of Illinois at Chicago and QinetiQ North America /Foster Miller Technology Solutions Group, is proposing a new, universal architecture for UUV power systems called the Advanced Management of Power System (AMPS). The fundamental block of this design is an isolated bidirectional power-flow uk converter. The idea was to come up with a ...

  9. Real-time In-situ Adaptation of Decision Parameters for Undersea Target Tracking in a Sensor Field

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N10AT038

    Detection of moving targets in spatially-variable and uncertain environments is of prime importance in maritime intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) systems. However, the situational context may prohibit the placement of a single fixed long-term ISR system that can be fine-tuned to maximize performance in the area of interest. In such situations, distributed fields of passive sensor ...
