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.

  2. Turbine Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT) Sensor Development: FBG-Based Sensing using Sapphire Optical Fibers

    SBC: optoXense, Inc.            Topic: AF173004

    EGT measurement in gas-turbine engines is considered a key parameter for optimizing fuel economy and PHM systems.Currently, direct EGT measurements made on turbine modules are limited due to the ultra high temperature (UHT) environment. Accurate EGT measurements and durable sensors are of specific importance for high-performance military turbine engines.optoXense will develop a new FBG-based EGT s ...

  3. Nonflammable Battery

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF173005

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will demonstrate a non-flammable, high power rechargeable battery design capable of 20C discharge rates after activation from an inert, inactive state. This battery will be constructed by combining PSIs non-flammable electrolyte and high active (HA) coating technologies. During the Phase I, PSI will demonstrate that the electrolyte is non-flammable both as an aerosol a ...

  5. Ultra-Compact Heat Exchangers

    SBC: Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF173006

    Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc. proposes to address thermal management performance shortfalls for 6th generation air platforms by developing a novel heat exchanger technology. Specifically, Makai will develop an ultra-compact foil based heat exchanger (FFHX) for air-cooled, two-phase vapor cycle systems. The FFHX will provide at least a 50% improvement in volumetric performance, pressure drops of le ...

  6. Additively Manufactured Fractal Heat Exchanger

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF173006

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will develop an innovative refrigeration condenser for airborne applications based on PSIs established fractal heat exchanger geometry. This configuration is 60% smaller and 20% lighter than comparable heat exchangers because it uses a branched feed network instead of pipe headers (the heaviest parts of existing heat exchangers).Test articles will be produced with a vo ...

  7. Ultra-Compact Condenser with Built-in Air Flow Headers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF173006

    Next-generation aircraft thermal management systems require advanced compact, lightweight condensers to reduce the overall size and mass of high-capacity vapor compression systems. To this end, Creare proposes to develop an ultra-compact, lamination-stack condenser with built-in air flow headers to substantially reduce the overall condenser assembly size and mass. The condenser has a unique config ...

  8. The Hexahedralization Sensation

    SBC: UNIVERSAL TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF173007

    Automatic conversion of computer aided drafting (CAD) geometry to computational grids appropriate for high fidelity hypersonic analysis is needed. With respect to grid quality, the output must be purely hexahedral and C2 continuous, even at extraordinary vertices. To accomplish this, a pipeline of local and global CAD repair algorithms will feed into a feature-preserving quadrangulation module wit ...
