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. Advanced Solutions to Enable Next-generation Terminals

    SBC: LOADPATH, LLC            Topic: N172137

    For MIDS JTRS designers who face increasing heat loads with existing thermal designs that limit system performance, the LoadPath Advanced Solutions to Enable Next-generation Terminals (ASENT) is a conjugate thermal solution that enables simple integration of a collection of advanced thermal enhancements to overcome this challenge. Unlike traditional designs that rely on standard thermal technologi ...

  2. Drag Removal by Autonomous Grapple (DRAG)

    SBC: LOADPATH, LLC            Topic: AF173016

    For the entire spacecraft community including current and future developers and operators whose hardware is inherently at risk from catastrophic collisions with space debris, the Drag Removal by Autonomous Grapple (DRAG) is an autonomous payload system that docks to identified space debris and increases drag with a deployable sail to accelerate de-orbit times by at least an order of magnitude.Unli ...

  3. Prognostics Approaches for Remote Piloted Aircraft (RPA) Propulsion and Vehicle Systems in Harsh Environments

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: AF121170

    This is a follow-on SBIR Phase II as a result of a fully executed SBIR Technology Transition Plan to transition MSIs COgnitive Stochastic MOdeling System (COSMOS) in a microsystem hardware to increase reliability of systems and components which would reduce maintenance and increase operational availability, which reduces the number of aircraft needed to complete missions. ACC and the AFRL propulsi ...

  4. Development of an Autonomous Damage Assessment Module (ADAM) for use as an Electronic Battle Damage Indicator

    SBC: Voss Scientific, LLC            Topic: N181075

    Future battlefields employing directed energy technologies will require an electronic Battle Damage Indicator (eBDI) tool that can measure the radiated Radio Frequency (RF) emissions from a target before and after a High Power RF (HPRF) attack and determine if target electronics have been significantly disrupted. We propose an innovative eBDI using a system so compact, lightweight and inexpensive ...

  5. Photolithographically Defined Optical Cooling Devices for Electronic Cooling Plane Applications

    SBC: PICOTEK LLC            Topic: N181081

    The current exponential growth of energy consumption in supercomputers and data centers has become an ecological and economical problem for simple reasons of power delivery, power dissipation and heat removal. To go on with the exponential growth in the use of information we need to continue reducing the energy required to handle each bit. This reduction, however, becomes an increasingly harder pr ...

  6. Implementation and Demonstration of LUCS, a Live, Ultra-Compact Multispectral USPL Characterization System

    SBC: Voss Scientific, LLC            Topic: N171085

    Researchers developing Ultra-Short-Pulse-Lasers (USPLs) need real-time measurements of key parameters, on both single-shot and statistical basis. Based on the Phase I results, we propose to assemble and demonstrate a fully integrated, intuitive and user friendly, Live USPL Characterization System, termed LUCS, using novel methods of data capture, data reduction, and distributed processing. Phase I ...

  7. Verification and Validation of Algorithms for Resilient Complex Software Controlled Systems

    SBC: XL Scientific, LLC dba Verus Research            Topic: AF17CT05

    Verification of the Guidance, Navigation and Control (GN&C) algorithms and software utilized onboard spacecraft is of paramount importance to ensure resilient, correct operation after launch. Rather than wait until the GN&C software has been deployed to perform on-orbit verification, offline verification integrated into the design process will improve mission performance, significantly reduce the ...

  8. Optical Cryocooling for Precision Metrology

    SBC: ThermoDynamic Films LLC            Topic: AF10BT02

    Optical cryocoolers, which are compact and produce no vibrations, are ideal for many electronics and sensor applications. In particular, some advanced metrology systems require cooling to around 124 K, the temperature at which the coefficient of thermal expansion for crystalline silicon goes through a null point. Currently, the dominant solid-state cooling technology is thermoelectric cooling, whi ...

  9. Detection of Radio Frequency and Magnetic Field Bioeffects in Living Cells

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT001

    Radio frequency communications and sensors are everywhere in both personal and military life. RF fields are also used in some medical therapies. However, little is known about the medical effects that result from the routine exposure of tissue to RF fields. To understand such effects, new instrumentation is needed that can quantify the RF radiation amplitude with spatial resolution comparable to t ...

  10. Full Mueller Matrix Characterization of Imaged Samples using Digital Holography

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF18AT007

    The Department of Defense relies on a worldwide network of radar and optical sites to maintain Space Situational Awareness.Although careful consideration during site selection process solves some of this mission's challenges, optical sensor imaging of objects at significant ranges is always hampered by many other factors, such as limited-aperture optics and atmospheric turbulence.There remains, ho ...
