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. Thermal Management System Toolkit for Naval Warfare Applications

  4. III-Nitride Based Compact 320-355 nm UV Lasers

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: N161005

    Existing ultraviolet laser diodes with wavelengths much shorter than 355 nm suffer from poor performance. This is partially due to limited research in this area, but a large part is also due to material and processing issues unique to deep UV lasers. New approaches to achieving III-Nitride UV lasers at wavelengths shorter than 355nm are needed to meet the Navys ambitious goals of having 1 W of CW ...

  5. Quantifying Uncertainty in the Mechanical Performance of Additively Manufactured Parts Due to Material and Process Variation

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N16AT004

    Additive manufacturing (AM) promises to be an innovative technology that can enable rapid manufacturing of complicated parts and greatly reduced cycle time. However, the AM process is complex and involves a large number of processing steps, each with its own set of uncertainties. These uncertainties compound through the AM build process, resulting in parts with widely varying properties across dif ...
