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. Auralization of Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) in Urban Environments

    SBC: Great Lakes Sound & Vibration, Inc.            Topic: A1

    The topic defines the problem as the development and demonstration of computationally efficient tools capable of modeling sound propagation in an urban environment for creating auralizations of UAM vehicles.  The tools would be suitable for eventual integration with the NASA Auralization Framework (NAF).The topic requires a set of modules to be delivered which will integrate with existing NAF ...

  10. AGILE Etalon Filter for Differential Absorption LIDAR

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: S101

    Modern sensing systems often are required to pick out a very specific wavelength in a sea of other light (such as in daylight), making precise optical filtering a vital part of many sensing systems. Michigan Aerospace Corporation (MAC) plans to design, build and test an agile, frequency-tunable Fabry-Perot interferometer (etalon) for use as an optical filter of background light as part of a Differ ...
