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. Image Quality Indicator(s) and Software for Computed Radiography (CR)

    SBC: Lickenbrock Technologies LLC            Topic: AF131191

    ABSTRACT: This Phase I project will be a feasibility study to develop a standard method, new image quality indicators (IQI"s) and software algorithms to automatically verify computed radiography (CR) image quality for nondestructive testing (NDT) of military airframes. Compared to existing IQI"s, the new IQI"s will more comprehensively measure the image quality by measuring more a ...

  2. Multimodal-Multidimensional image fusion for morphological and functional evaluation of the retina

    SBC: Lickenbrock Technologies LLC            Topic: AF141028

    ABSTRACT: This project will deliver software that integrates information from repeated experiments, disparate imaging and functional sensing to study the physiological response of ocular tissue to laser damage. Imaging and functional testing modalities include the fundus camera, scanning laser ophthalmoscope, optical coherence tomography, hyperspectral, speckle and fluorescence. Physiological a ...

  3. Efficient shaping or reshaping of complex 3D parts using engineered residual stress

    SBC: Engineering Software Research And Development, Inc.            Topic: AF141170

    ABSTRACT: Increasing emphasis on affordability of military systems has led to a number of advances in airframe production. For example, high speed machining (HSM) has made it possible to fabricate thin structures that provide improved performance. However, near-surface plastic strains induced by HSM or surface treatments can lead to excessive component distortion such that the component requires ...

  4. Adjoint-Based Shape Optimization for Noise Reduction


    ITAC and its partners propose to develop and demonstrate a computational technology and methodology tool for the concurrent automated shaping of aft airframe and nozzle geometries to reduce tactical aircraft jet noise without any performance penalties. The proposed technologies will lead to an integrated tool which inherently maintains critical aerodynamic performance while reducing the noise gene ...

  5. Effective Measures of Training Display System Performance

    SBC: Visual Performance LLC            Topic: N142104

    With over 80 years of combined experience in simulation and engineering, the four-member Visual Performance technical team will assess the feasibility of developing an objective and efficient measurement toolkit. The proposed design will meet, if not exceed, the minimum requirements set forth in the RFP.

  6. Development of Hermetic Sealing Glasses for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    SBC: MO-SCI Corp.            Topic: H801

    Sealing glasses, either rigid glass-ceramics or viscous, non-crystallizing compositions, will be developed and sealing processes will be optimized based on NASA's solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) designs. SOFC design constraints, including material selection and operational conditions, will guide compositional development, and then these new compositions will be used for long-term (>500 hours) materia ...

  7. Plasma Fairings for Quieting Aircraft Landing Gear Noise


    This Phase II SBIR project deals with the design, development, and testing of a "Plasma Fairing" to reduce noise on the Gulfstream G550 landing gear. The plasma fairing will use single dielectric barrier discharge (SDBD) plasma actuators to reduce flow- separations and impingement around the landing gear, which are the dominant sources of landing gear noise. The Phase I project successfully demo ...

  8. SBIR Phase II: A Knowledge-Based System to Improve Student Advisement in Two Year Colleges

    SBC: Townsend Communications, Inc            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase II project is designed to improve academic advising and access to advising to over 11 million community college students. Community colleges serve a significant population of non-traditional adult students seeking associates degrees and vocational training to improve their job and career prospects. Currently only one in four students enrolled in community colleges graduate. The pro ...

  9. SBIR Phase II: Securing Industrial Control Networks with Network Forecasting

    SBC: Observable Networks, Inc            Topic: EI

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project is focused on network forecasting, a new approach to securing industrial control networks. In essence, network forecasting involves monitoring all devices on a network, and for each device using past behavior to predict near-term future behavior. Deviation from predicted behavior then signals a potential issue. The intellectual merit of the ...

  10. SBIR Phase II: Palatal Device Providing In-situ Sensory Feedback for Patients with Vestibular Imbalance

    SBC: Innervo Technology LLC            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes to develop advanced versions of a hidden and noninvasive balance device that can be used for balance assistance for people with vestibular dysfunction. Vestibular patients experience imbalance due to loss of vestibular feedback, which may result in an increased risk of falling, reduced activity levels, and in some cases, a si ...
