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. Sub-topic 1. NAND/NOR Chip Forensics- Phase II

    SBC: Viaforensics, LLC            Topic: HSB0112003

    The overall goal of this project is to develop new tools and techniques to address current limitations in mobile forensics. Many factors, including NAND Flash memory, passcode protected phones, encrypted data, lack of device support and simplistic analysis techniques in current forensic tools drive the need for advancements in mobile forensic tools. Phase I of this project was highly successful ...

  2. Electronically Controlled Pneumatic Brake System Emulator Development

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 121FR2

    Migration of the vehicle fleet from the current, pneumatic-only, automatic air brake (AAB) system to ECP presents a significant challenge due to the systems’ inherent operational incompatibility. This project will investigate the feasibility of devices that can help to ease this transition by allowing ECP equipped cars to operate in a conventionally braked train, as well as devices to permit con ...

  3. Advanced Epitaxial Lift-Off Quantum Dot Photovoltaic Devices

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: T301

    We propose to develop a high-efficiency, triple-junction, epitaxial lift-off (ELO) solar cell by incorporating quantum dots (QDs) within the current-limiting subcell. We intend to leverage existing QD epitaxy processes developed by the Rochester Institute of Technology and combine this with MicroLink's expertise in multi-junction cell growth and ELO technology. We will employ QDs to enhance ...

  4. Infrared Microspectrometer based on MEOMS Lamellar Grating Interferometer

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: T401

    Infrared spectroscopy is an invaluable detection and measurement tool intensively used in Earth Science, Solar Physics and Astrophysics experiments pursued from satellite platforms. The geometrical characteristics and sensitivity of satellite infrared spectroscopy systems is often determined or limited by their optical elements. Improvements in optical components allow one to reduce the mass and i ...

  5. Advanced Flow Analysis Tools for Transient Solid Rocket Motor Simulations

    SBC: Tetra Research Corporation            Topic: T901

    The goals of reducing total cost and increasing reliability and safety of access to space continue to be top priorities for NASA. The most immediate propulsion launch challenge involves increasing lift weight from 70 to 130 metric tons by developing the heavy lift Space Launch System (SLS). Solid rocket motor analysis tools are needed to simulate ignition and propellant recession during the burn ...

  6. Novel Materials for In-Situ Ablation Sensing

    SBC: Industrial Measurement Systems Inc.            Topic: AF10BT04

    ABSTRACT: In order to achieve precise guidance, navigation and control in re-entry vehicles, aerodynamic shape must be accurately known throughout the flight trajectory. For this Phase I program an ultrasonic-based technique for real-time, non-intrusive (5 KHz) measurement of recession during ablation will be developed. The system combines the elements of ultrasonic thickness gauging technology w ...

  7. Electrochemical Conversion of CO2 and Water to Syngas

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: AF11BT07

    ABSTRACT: This proposal attepts to develop a new high efficiency process for conversion of carbon dioxide and water to syngas, as a first step in production of synthetic fuels. We have already demonstrated the conversion of carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide at over 80% energy efficiency. The objective of the proposed work is to extend the process so that we can also produce syngas. BENEFIT: I ...

  8. Strain-Modulated Diamond Nanostructures for Next-Generation, Biocompatible Nanoelectromechanical Systems

    SBC: Advanced Diamond TechNologies, Inc.            Topic: A12aT017

    In this proposal, we demonstrate fabrication and characterization of diamond nanoribbons, novel strain-modulated diamond nanostructures (SMDN). Such structures are generated by applying strain force on nano-patterned diamond film as the nanopatterns are transferred to a flexible substrate. Once the strain is released, the rigid diamond patterns are converted to highly ordered diamond nanoribbons. ...

  9. High-Speed Electronically Tunable Multi Fiber-Optic Wavelength Filter based on Ultra-High-Resolution Super-Compact Grating on Silicon-Photonic Platfor

    SBC: OptoNet            Topic: N12AT005

    The proposed project will undertake the research, design, and development of key concepts and technologies for a high-speed electronically tunable channel filter, based on monolithically integrated ultra-high-resolution super-compact grating (UHR-SCG) technology that has been developed in OptoNet. The grating will be realized on Silicon-Photonic Electronic-Photonic Integrated (EPIC) Platform that ...

  10. Affordable CMAS-Resistant Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N12AT019

    A notable failure mechanism in thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) is the attack by calcium-magnesium-alumino silicate (CMAS) deposits resulting from the ingestion of siliceous minerals with the intake of air. Existing TBC systems such as yittria partially stabilized zirconia (YSZ) are highly susceptible to CMAS infiltration. In this STTR program, QuesTek Innovations LLC, a leader in the field of comp ...
