The SBIR.gov award data files now contain the required fields to calculate award timeliness for individual awards or for an agency or branch. Additional information on calculating award timeliness is available on the Data Resource Page.
SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc. Topic: AF18AT006
Modern Directed Energy (DE) missions require target engagements at low elevation angles and long ranges.These engagement geometries require propagation through distributed-volume turbulence. To correct for distributed-volume turbulence effects, an estimation of the turbulence along the propagation path is required. Correcting for these image aberrations will improve the quality of the target image ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: NUTRONICS, INC. Topic: AF18AT006
Nutronics, Inc. and Montana State University propose to develop and evaluate computational methods for a Volume Digital Holographic Wavefront Sensor (VDHWFS).VDHWFS based imaging offers the potential to provide the equivalent of wide field of view adaptive optics (AO) compensated imaging, but without the added complexity of AO components and hardware.Recent result for coherent imaging developed by ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: APPLIED DEFENSE SOLUTIONS, INC. Topic: AF17CT05
In response to the challenges described in AF173-CT05, Applied Defense Solutions (ADS) and the University of New Mexico (UNM) (equivalently, the ADS Team) propose to research and develop innovative validation and verification (V&V) algorithms for spacecraft GN&C. The ADS Team is unique in that it brings operational flight GN&C software experience (ADS) with cutting edge research on algorithm V&V ( ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
Validation Experiments to Measure Transient Aerothermoelastic Response of a Curved Panel to Hypersonic FlowsSBC: METROLASER, INCORPORATED Topic: AF16AT24
An experiment to obtain validation data on the transient aerothermoelastic response of a curved panel in hypersonic flows will be designed and evaluated for its feasibility. Significant challenges must be overcome for a successful experimental campaign i...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: BOSTON FUSION CORP Topic: AF16AT29
Automatic target recognition (ATR)the identification of a potential target based on signatures in sensor datais fundamentally a question of information content. While ATR has been studied for decades, it remains a challenge because multifarious tar...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: RADIATION MONITORING DEVICES, INC. Topic: AF14AT26
ABSTRACT: This effort is a close collaboration between RMD and Alfred University. Our goal is to develop a process for producing optical ceramics with properties approaching or exceeding single crystals. Ceramic processing can provide enhanced performance, lower cost, higher yield, relaxed constraints on size and shape, and materials that are difficult or impossible to grow as crystals. We will ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: METROLASER, INCORPORATED Topic: AF16AT06
A diagnostic is proposed for obtaining instantaneous three-dimensional volumetric distributions of density in a flow field at velocities ranging from subsonic to supersonic. Two variants of laser-based Rayleigh scattering will be investigated, each of wh...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: METROLASER, INCORPORATED Topic: AF16AT06
A diagnostic is proposed for obtaining instantaneous three-dimensional volumetric distributions of density in a flow field at velocities ranging from subsonic to supersonic. Multiple Sheet Filtered Rayleigh Scattering (MSFRS) will be developed, which enables a series of two-dimensional images to be rapidly obtained making up a volumetric image while suppressing background scattering from wind tunn ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC Topic: AF17AT027
To address the challenge of long-term tracking, through extended occlusions and significant appearance changes, we propose to continue developing DC-CAT, a Deep Convolutional neural network (CNN) based Confuser-Aware high value target (HVT) Tracker.The DC-CAT system combines a state-of-the-art CNN-based adaptive HVT tracker with a CNN-based pre-trained generic target detector, in a deep-feature-ai ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & SPACE TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH ASSOCIATES LLC Topic: AF17CT01
The Air Force is seeking solutions for a sun-tracking millimeter wave radiometer to measure atmospheric attenuation over a high dynamic range. The V- and W- bands have rarely been used for space communications and telemetry applications, but rapidly increasing government and commercial bandwidth needs will require future solutions within these bands. Our team, comprised of experienced scientists, ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
