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. Two-Stage Thermionic Converter

    SBC: Advanced Energy Technology,            Topic: N/A

    Recent advances enable thermionic converters to achieve energy conversion efficiencies of up to 30%. Advanced Energy Technology will explore this technology for nuclear space power. High efficiency means that more power can be obtained with a smaller system radiator; this reduces spacecraft mass and increases manueverability, as well as improved packaging. Our converter is inherently survivable ag ...

  3. Ground Based Scramaccelerator Launcher

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Phase I will analyze use of a hypervelocity launcher to provide ahigh mass (2 to 20 kilograms), hypervelocity (4 km\sec) demonstrator for a Theater Missile Defense (TMD) System. Current ballistic powder guns, along with one and two stage light gas guns, cannot meet the high mass requirements while maintaining high velocities required for rapid target aquisition. A concept that would provide low co ...

  4. A SOLID-STATE VISIBLE AND INFRARED MULTIPLIER

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE SOLID-STATE VISIBLE AND INFRARED MULTIPLIER (SVIRM) DETECTOR WILL AMPLIFY THE SIGNAL FROM A SINGLE VISIBLE OR INFRARED PHOTON, ABOVE READOUT NOISE, WITH LOW DARK-CURRENT, MAKING THE PHOTON DETECTABLE. THE SVIRM USES A NOVEL SILICON STRUCTURE. THE ADVANTAGES OVER CONTEMPORARY STATE DETECTORS ARE ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE LESS NOISE; ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE LOWER DARK CURRENT; COMPATIBILITY WITH SILICON, ...

  7. Neural, Modular, Adaptive Structures

    SBC: AMERICAN GNC CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The success of any strategic defense system depends on the control of space structures. Space structures facilitate precise and rapid retargeting maneuvers without adverse jitter and to provide decision making in the presence of uncertainties and failures. Two enabling technologies; piezoceramic sensor/actuator and neural networks will be blended in a modular, miniaturized, light-weight, adaptive ...

  8. High Energy Density Dielectric Materials

    SBC: Chronos Research Laboratories            Topic: N/A

    Radiation tolerant, high operating temperature electronic devices are needed for future space power systems. High energy density capacitors are one of the key elements in most power systems. Improvement of current dielectric capacitors can be realized by incorporating new state of the art polymers designed specifically for the spacecraft environment. Chronos has previously synthesized and measured ...

  9. Neural Networks to Solve the Closely-Spaced Objects Problem

    SBC: Conceptual Systems & Software Inc            Topic: N/A

    Aggessive training algorithms will allow neural networks to separate closely-spaced objects in target identification for missile defense. Resulting neural networks will show an order-of-magnitude improvement in extracting individual target information from sensor data. This focal plane sensor data processing, performing target identification and decoy discrimination functions as the "eyes and ears ...

  10. Advanced HTS Superconductor-Normal-Superconductor Devices

    SBC: CONDUCTUS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Superconductors can be used in integrated circuits based on Josephson junction devices that bring performance advantages in speed and low power dissipation. The discovery of high-temperature superconductors (HTS) has created the opportunity for such circuits to function at unprecedented high temperatures. It is likely that very high speed superconducting integrated circuits operating at 30 to 77 K ...
