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. Broadband High Operating Temperature Strained Layer Superlattice Focal Plane Arrays (FPA)

  4. Passive Technology to Improve Criticality Control of NTP Reactors

    SBC: Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation            Topic: H202

    This SBIR will develop passive reactor criticality control technology for Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) identified by Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation (USNC) in Phase 1. This technology will allow NTP systems to start up by rotating the control drums to a single predetermined location and remain there for the duration of operation for the majority of the burns associated with a Mars mission. Pas ...

  5. Instrument for Airborne Measurement of Carbonyl Sulfide

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: S107

    In this Phase II SBIR program, Southwest Sciences will continue the development of small, low power instrumentation for real-time direct measurement of carbonyl sulfide (OCS) in the atmosphere, especially targeting airborne measurements. The instrument is based on a room temperature interband cascade laser (ICL) operating in the 4800 - 4900 nm region. This laser has a substantially reduced (by a ...

  7. Accident Tolerant Reactor Shutdown for NTP Systems

    SBC: Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation            Topic: H202

    In this SBIR, USNC will develop an accident tolerant reactor shut-down system for Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) systems that will guarantee sub-criticality in the event of a water submersion accident. Reactor shut down during a water submersion accident is a crucial issue that must be addressed in NTP systems. The technology that USNC will develop in this SBIR is a low risk design feature that ...
