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. High Speed Room Temperature IR Camera Based on Plasmon Physics

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: ST051005

    It is desirable to make focal plane arrays (or imaging arrays) with reduced pitch; doing so enables smaller, cheaper and lighter camera systems that provide the same image resolution. Currently, the lower limit on pitch is set by electron/hole diffusion and light diffraction that results in crosstalk between neighboring pixels. Since electron hole pairs generated outside the depletion layer can ...

  2. Culture and Modeling of Routine and Non-Routine Behavior

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06014

    Crowd management is an important task for civilian, police, and military groups that can be very difficult on its own, and becomes even more difficult in hostile environments. The difficulty comes from the many levels of granularity that events can happen at. Making such a system automated adds further challenges, due to difficulties with modeling and sensors. Accurate large-scale crowd models are ...

  3. WorkRight SkillBuilder: A Customized State-of-the-Art Simulation Software System to Support Vocational, Social Skills Training for Students and Adults with Intellectual Disabilities

    SBC: ABLELINK TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I, research demonstated the feasibility of using state-of-the-art computer avatars for providing social skills training for individuals with intellectual disabilities. The results showed a significant improvement in social skills knowledge when engaging in an independently usable mutimedia framework, and training system that utilizes state-of-the-art computer simulation, animation, a mul ...

  4. Evaluation of a Speech Translation Approach Toward Independent, Community-Based Communication for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities and Speech Impairments

    SBC: ABLELINK TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    The project develops and evaluates a prototype translator system determining the feasibility of enabling independent and effective community-based communication for individuals with intellectual disabilities and speech impairments. The prototype is based on PDA technologies and provides evaluation through: (1) the ability of persons with intellectual disabilities to use it independently; (2) the ...

  5. Development of enhanced active damping system for the Marine Corps Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV)

    SBC: ACTIVE SHOCK, INC.            Topic: N04192

    A semi-active suspension upgrade kit for the SOCOM up-armored HMWWV will be developed that will achieve comparable performance for the entire weight range of a GMV: 8300lbs curb weight to 14,500lbs combat loaded. The baseline performance requirement is equivalent handling, stability and ride quality as an M1113 HMMWV at rated GVW. A dynamic model that incorporates the semi-active suspension into ...

  6. Covert Modular Situational Awareness Monitor

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM05010

    A need exists for inexpensive, disposable, broadcast capable chemical / explosive-compound sensors that also provide site weather conditions. The state-of-the-art does not meet the need described both in terms of CWA sensor cost/size and lack of a low-cost deployment system. ADA proposes under this three-phased SBIR program to develop a system comprised of a suite of covert, modular, lightweight ...

  7. RF Tag and Development Systems for Manipulative Educational Activities

    SBC: AdamLab, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The project designs, tests, and evaluates the Teach ME system. The Teach ME system embodies universal design for learning principles by using smart sensor technology to create manipulative activities for all students and specifically addresses the needs of students with cognitive disabilities. Research identifies a family of radio frequency (rf) passive tags, both regular and anti-collision, and ...

  8. Maritime Surveillance Sensing Using Underwater High Frequency Acoustic Communication Receivers

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06013

    High-frequency acoustic modems are required to provide undersea communication networks to support covert surveillance operations. These modems can also be used as platforms for compact, low power surveillance sensors and processing. A natural first step would be to integrate a capability for passive acoustic detection of ships and submarines. A multi-phase effort is proposed for integrating passiv ...

  9. Miniature Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (MUAV)

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: SOCOM05011

    This proposal will design, develop, and demonstrate a self-contained probe that will provide sensor videos on-demand to aircraft operators. A Miniature Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (MUAV) is proposed to meet this requirement. The MUAV will be capable of being launched from existing airborne aircraft platforms, including helicopters, and will be capable of being controlled by the aircraft operator in fl ...

  10. Technology enhanced science education.

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a troubling decline in the number of US citizens training to become scientists and engineers. There are insufficient numbers of qualified science teachers in the middle schools, where interest in science must be kindled. Technology enhanced learning environments (TELEs), which could improve science education, are not being widely deployed. This Phase I project will customize a TELE to a) ...
