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. Miniature Directional Microphone for Handheld Automatic Speech Recognition in Military Environments

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Phraselator, a handheld automatic translation device, currently uses a cardioic microphone as an input for automatic speech recognition (ASR). This microphone is highly vulnerable to performance degradation in typical noisy military environments and,thus, there is a need for an improved transducer for this application. We propose to develop a new directional microphone that is immune to extr ...

  2. UV Rigid Inflatable Wing

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    As the unmanned exploration of Mars and Venus becomes more of a focus area at NASA, inflatable, rigidizable wings will become an enabling technology. The successful development of this type of wing will also have significant military applications. The utility of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for the military has been dramatically demonstrated in the conflict in Afghanistan. Rigidization of infla ...

  3. SBIR Phase I: Fiber Impregnation using Molten Thermoplastic Polymer Spray

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a prepreg material that, while maintaining the advantages of a powder towpreg system, will eliminate the use of high price, finely ground powders. By generating fine particles in situ using aerosol formation from molten polymers two steps will be eliminated from the manufacturing process -- powder grinding and powder sin ...

  5. Spatially Modulated Reflective Membranes for High-Dynamic-Range Wavefront Control

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: N/A

    Diffractive wavefront control has been demonstrated as a viable technique for high-dynamic-range laser wavefront control. Unfortunately, most conventional programmable diffractive elements, like liquid crystals and segmented mirror arrays, are damagedwhen illuminated with high-power laser light. The proposed work would investigate approaches for scaling membrane deformable mirrors to provide hig ...

  7. Next Generation Inertial Reference Unit (NG-IRU)

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force is pursuing aircraft and satellite-based high power laser systems to engage and destroy missiles at long ranges (hundreds to thousands of kilometers). A precision inertial reference unit (IRU) is critical to successful operation of longrange, high power laser systems for missile defense. The IRU enables the system to accurately point the payload telescope and attached tracking sens ...
