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. High-Resolution Scanning of Sub-Surface Lunar Water with Mobile Neutron Energy Spectrometer

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: H2

    This proposal describes a mobile solid-state Neutron Energy Spectrometer (NES) for lunar soil moisture determination. Cosmic-ray interactions within the lunar soil will yield secondary neutrons and protons, among other particles. The produced neutrons will travel within the soil, scattering off of materials such as hydrogen. Interactions with hydrogen will greatly reduce the energy of the neutrons ...

  3. Collision-Avoidance Radar for Small UAS

    SBC: UAVradars LLC            Topic: A202

    In the near future unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) will be utilized for many societal and commercial applications. However, the hurdle of operation safety in the form of avoiding airborne collisions must first be overcome. UAVradars LLC is proposing a small, lightweight, and low-power radar system designed specifically to give small UAS (< 55 lbs) airborne collision-avoidance sensory capability. ...

  4. Switching Electronics for Space-Based Telescopes with Advanced AO Systems

    SBC: Sunlite Science & Technology, Inc            Topic: S201

    A 32x32-channel multiplexing Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) driver, which can hold a voltage signal with a 16-bit resolution or beyond, is proposed. Such a driver will greatly reduce the operation power, and are compact and reliable. When the ASIC driver is vertically integrated with a Deformable Mirror (DM), the potential wiring failure will be eliminated. Furthermore, radiation r ...

  5. SDR-Based MicroADS-B for Low Altitude Small UAS Operations

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: A302

    ADS-B is emerging as the defacto standard for manned aircraft in the context of NextGen ATM. There are several advantages to ADS-B, but most ADS-B gear was developed for manned aircraft, and some smaller versions have been developed for UAVs recently. However, even the smallest currently-available ADS-B transponder is still about 250g, which is not suitable for small UAVs, such as those becoming p ...

  6. Autonomous Air Traffic Reporting and Operations for UAS

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: A302

    A hardware/software solution for autonomous reporting of flight operations of a UAS is proposed. Such a system would enable the UAS to report identity, position, and other information to local human and autonomous traffic and air traffic controllers in an autonomous manner, in legacy terminology. This will improve the overall safety of UAS operations, and lead to easier integration of UASs into th ...

  7. Collision-avoidance radar for small UAS

    SBC: UAVradars LLC            Topic: A202

    In the near future unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) will be utilized for many societal and commercial applications. However, the hurdle of operation safety in the form of avoiding airborne collisions must first be overcome. Radar is ideally suited for this purpose due to their all weather capability to provide accurate position and velocity data. UAVradars LLC is proposing a small, lightweight, ...

  8. Switching Electronics for Space-based Telescopes with Advanced AO Systems

    SBC: Sunlite Science & Technology, Inc            Topic: S201

    One preferred approach to directly image an exoplanet is to build a space-based telescope instrumented with advanced internal coronagraphs, where deformable mirrors (DMs) with high actuator counts are essential for achieving very high contrast detection. When actuator quantities are in thousands, the electrical driver poses a fascinating challenge for space-based applications, where power and mass ...

  9. AirCore Reusable InSitu Sampler for CO2 and Trace Gas Measurements

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: S108

    A novel design for an in situ air sampling sensor for CO2 and trace gases is proposed. The sensor, named AirCore, provides the advantages of existing in situ sensors (e.g. high resolution) but eliminates possible biases in analysis that often originate from imperfect measurement condition. The AirCore provides a significant savings in cost and weight while increasing the capabilities of existing i ...

  10. Miniature Airborne Methane Sensor

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: S107

    KalScott Engineering, and the subcontractor, Princeton University propose the development and demonstration of compact and robust methane sensor for small Unmanned Aerial Systems (s-UAS) by synthesizing state-of-the-art, laser-based detection methods with the rapidly increasing s-UAS market. The overall goal of this project is to develop and demonstrate (via flight test) laser-based flight-weight ...
