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. Modular Hypergolic Leak Detector

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: MDA12013

    The U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) is seeking a highly reliable, compact, low-power and low-cost transducer to detect rapid changes in concentration of hypergolic fuels and oxidizers. To meet this MDA need, InnoSense LLC (ISL) will develop a chemical transducer-based hypergolic leak detector using proprietary polymer nanomaterials and electronic design. Building on the well established collabor ...

  5. Optics and Coatings for High Energy Laser Applications

    SBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA12016

    This purpose of this project is to develop coatings for use inside the gain cavity of next generation Diode Pumped Alkali Lasers (DPALs). These coatings will be applied to transparent surfaces of the cavity used to couple the pump energy into the gain media and allow the transmission of the alkali lasing wavelength. These coatings will serve two purposes: protection of the transparent window (e. ...
