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. 3D Integrated Full Color Microdisplays Based on InGaN/AlGaInP Semiconductor Microemitter Arrays

    SBC: III-N Technology, Inc            Topic: A07082

    The goal of this SBIR project is to develop next generation inorganic semiconductor micro-emitter based emissive microdisplays with the following merits: (1) Much higher brightness and power efficiency (5 x) than the current filter based LCD and OLED microdisplays. (2) Resolution and pixel density higher than 15 ƒÝm per pixel with VGA, SVGA and higher format. (3) RGB narrow bandwidth (~ 25 nm) w ...

  2. 3DML: A 3-D Miniature LIDAR for Small Unmanned Ground Vehicles

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: A08135

    A small-envelope, inexpensive 3D LIDAR with the high performance required by UGV navigation and operations applications does not currently exist. We propose to develop such a sensor, drawing on technology matured by Honeybee Robotics under DARPA and NASA funding. Our 3D Miniature LIDAR (3DML) design uses an innovative drum scanner in conjunction with a pulse-time-of-flight (PTOF) optical rangefin ...

  3. 50- 100 Watt Wind Energy Harvesting in Light Tacti

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A09092

    Radiance Technologies, a small business with extensive experience in providing solutions to the U.S. military, proposes to develop and commercialize a wind turbine system (WTS) that generates 100W at 12mph winds for mobile tactical applications. Radiance’s WTS will be able to be deployed for wind power extraction or stowed to a small fraction of the deployed volume inside a rigid, vehicle mounte ...

  4. 60 GHZ Wide Band, Local Radio (WBLR)

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: A08194

    The 60 GHz frequency band possesses the potential for short range, wide bandwidth and stealthy communication. MaXentric’s ViFi-MESH is a V-band (60GHz) Vehicular mobile mesh network that allows fast moving vehicles to perform on-the-move command and control operations with high quality video, voice and data. ViFi-MESH overcomes the current limitation in power amplifiers by having an active dire ...

  5. A Biomechanical Model for the Investigation of Blast Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: ALBERT I. KING            Topic: OSD08H14

    The objectives of this proposal are to develop an animal surrogate finite element (FE) model and environment that can be used as a tool to investigate injury mechanisms and mitigation of traumatic brain injury (TBI) due to blast overpressure. A rat head model with a high degree of anatomical detail will be refined for used within an FE blast environment. To avoid the use of unnecessarily costly ...

  6. A Biomechanical-Physiological Model for Preclinical Investigation of Blast Wave TBI

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD08H14

    Recent statistics from Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) show that 61% of soldiers injured in explosion blast events endure Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). The current understanding of TBI mechanisms is incomplete and is limiting the development of protection and therapeutic measures. Animal testing, in vitro study, and analysis of clinical data are useful and necessary but these are slow, expensive, a ...

  7. A Compact Solid State Infrared Flare

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A09004

    In this Phase I SBIR proposal Physical Sciences Inc (PSI) outlines the development a solid-state emitter package to replace the propellant based candle of the M278 Infrared flare. Propellant combustion in the current candle technology is unsteady, resulting in variations in the illumination intensity and also produces a visible signature that limits it usefulness in covert activities. The proposed ...

  8. A Computational Biomechanics Model for the Study of Blast Brain Injury


    Injury patterns in recent conflicts involving the United States show a similarity with those observed in previous conflicts. As protective body armor effectiveness progressed and medical care advanced, mortality among current U.S. warfighters has been reduced. As a consequence, more warfighters are surviving what previously would have been fatal injuries making other injury conditions like blast ...

  9. A Conversational Independent Living Assistant for Cognitive Impairments

    SBC: Attention Control Systems            Topic: OSD08H06

    Conversation between a patient and their human caregiver is important for building the patient’s trust and acceptance of the helper. This may also be true for electronic cognitive assistants. Human caregivers also function independently from the patient. Electronic cognitive aids simply echo the user''s schedule back, but human caregivers think independently about when and what to say. We pr ...

  10. A High Production Rate Process to Fabricate Low Cost High Strength MMCs In Net Shape

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: A07063

    Military systems are traditionally produced in steel because of excellent mechanical properties and low cost. For a lighter weight and more mobile force, all aspects of military systems are being scrutinized for possible weight reduction. Metal matrix composites with discontinuous reinforcements offer the potential for the very high strength and modulus required for targeted Army applications su ...
