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. Force Protection C-sUAS

    SBC: URSA, Inc.            Topic: AF182003

    Significance: The asymmetrical and rapidly evolving threats posed by autonomous systems must be countered by tools capable of reducing the asymmetry and evolving with, and ideally ahead of, the threats. Accurate forensic analysis integrated with effective intelligence gathering, analysis, and sharing can prevent attacks before they occur, addressing part of the asymmetry. Developing tools, and the ...

  4. Efficient Transduction for Shock-Loaded Bond Inspection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF182093

    Composite airframe designs benefit significantly from incorporation of adhesive bond joints rather than metal fasteners. Adhesive bonds can be exceptionally strong and light, but require careful process control to form. To rely on such joints, both the Air Force and commercial manufacturers require a non destructive test method to verify the quality of as-built joints. The only known test is shock ...

  5. A Target Drone System for CUAS Validation and Testing

    SBC: URSA, Inc.            Topic: AF183005

    URSA, an industry leader in UAV forensics and autonomous systems telemetry analysis, will leverage their existing intellectual property and expertise to create a prototype CUAS evaluation platform. This workstream will produce three critical components: a flexible target UAV platform; a instrumentation payload for detecting, recording, and transmitting external effects and onboard telemetry; and a ...

  6. Photon+Cyber Range: Modern cyber defense tools integrated into a proven collaboration platform

    SBC: Hadron Industries, Inc.            Topic: AF183005

    Photon is a collaboration operating system for teams trying to distill information chaos into smart decisions, often using a multitude of computing devices, geographic locations, and networks. Photon works by turning all of an organization's screens and input devices into a single, unified, collaborative workspace that can be shared between all users across large distances, allowing a given user t ...

  7. Open Call for Innovative Defense-Related Dual-Purpose Technologies/Solutions with a Clear Air Force Stakeholder Need


    The Air Force (AF) is in the early stages of migrating business and mission applications to the commercial cloud. For applications to function they require access to data; and AF unclassified data can be voluminous, sensitive and mission critical. A number of AF applications have been migrated to the commercial cloud by SSSC and other contractors; however, the application migrations have been path ...

  8. Faster, more intuitive collaboration for ATAK users

    SBC: Hadron Industries, Inc.            Topic: AF191010

    This is a proposal to integrate Photon--an established, USAF-sponsored collaboration platform--into ATAK. Photon is a cross-device, cross-network software-hardware hybrid. It delivers truly seamless, many-to-many collaboration and situational awareness to every screen, in every application, at any scale: single-user workstations, conference rooms, theater-scale operations centers, and mobile devic ...

  9. Circuit Card Replicator for Verifying Interface Test Adapters

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF182017

    Form and fit between an Interface Test Adapter (ITA) and the circuit card assembly is critical to maintaining stable electrical connections. Faulty, intermittent connections lead to failed tests, incorrect diagnoses, and costly debugging. Tying up the circuit card assembly for ITA development, however, is not desirable and often not possible.Creare proposes to create a system to scan and 3D print ...

  10. Next Equatorial Scintillation Forecasting Model

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF183030

    Ionospheric scintillation can disrupt systems that rely on transionospheric radio wave propagation, including communications, navigation, and radar systems. Advances are needed to improve forecasting accuracy and specification of impacts. Creare and its research partners propose to develop a new global equatorial ionospheric scintillation model that will ingest and fuse data from a diverse array o ...
