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. Neural-Network-Based Adaptive Flow Control for Maneuvering Vehicles

    SBC: GUIDED SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF04T027

    Conventional flow control methods employ actuation frequencies that are the same order as the characteristic frequency of the flow. Georgia Tech has demonstrated novel high-frequency synthetic jet actuation to modify the apparent aerodynamic shape of aerosurfaces and achieve quasi-steady flow reattachment over an otherwise separated airfoil. Practical application of this technology in dynamic ma ...

  2. Innovative, Weight Efficient, Composite/Metallic Structural Joining Concepts

    SBC: M&P TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05248

    Currently aircraft composite and metal structures are joined by fastening them in place using riveted or bolted joints. Although fastened joints largely avoid concerns associated with thermally induced stresses and strains from CTE mismatches, such designs add weight, manufacturing complexity and cost to the design. Recent advances have given rise to new opportunities to increase the integrity a ...

  4. Tunable, Low Mass, Low Loss, Millimeter Wave, MEMS RF Filters

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: AF05230

    nGimat proposed to combine ferroelectric barium strontium titanate (BST) thin film and MEMS switch technology to design and manufacture a low-cost, low-loss, millimeter wave highly tunable passband filter. A proprietary combustion chemical vapor deposition process will be used to grow the BST films. In Phase I, nGimat will design and fabricate the circuit, perform modeling and simulation, and bu ...

  5. A versatile, novel two-step hydrogen reforming process

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: AF05282

    The Air Force requires a reformer technology that can handle multiple fuels and produce fuel cell quality hydrogen on demand. These include JP-8 as well as natural gas and other hydrocarbons. Many of the current technologies require multiple steps in order to remove CO or H2S impurities from the fuel stream. This creates difficulties from fuel versatility, processing and portability standpoints ...

  6. Advanced High Frequency Tunable Filters

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: AF05224

    nGimat proposes to combine MEMS switches with ferroelectric technology to design and manufacture low-loss, low-cost, monolithic, frequency-agile microwave bandpass filters that can be dynamically adjusted in frequency by the application of a DC voltage. In Phase I, nGimat will design and fabricate the circuit, optimize materials, perform modeling and simulation, and build prototype tunable filter ...

  7. Nanostructured High Performance Ultrahydrophobic Coatings by Combustion CVD

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: AF05T014

    nGimat Co., in collaboration with Georgia Institute of Technology, proposes to utilize the Combustion CVD process for the development and production of high performance self-cleaning coatings for military structures. The self-cleaning coatings will be based in part on the ultrahydrophobic nature of the lotus leaf, but with a focus on improving durability to a level not previously seen in nature o ...

  8. System Engineering-- Thermal/Power- Efficiency Assessments of Air Vehicles

    SBC: MODELOGICS, INC.            Topic: AF04243

    In these times of increasing deficits and limited budgets, the Office of the Secretary of Defense is using the idea of Capability-Based Acquisitions. This concept limits spending by focusing investments only for key capabilities. With this concept, Research and Development at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) now also needs to be such that funding is focused on R&D that supports these key ...

  9. System Engineering-- Thermal/Power- Efficiency Assessments of Air Vehicles

    SBC: MODELOGICS, INC.            Topic: AF04243

    Effective and timely assessments of total thermal and power energy management is critical to the design and eventual cost-effective deployment of emerging air vehicles. To fully assess the overall weapon system benefits requires evaluating the technology impacts to aircraft and weapon system effectiveness, survivability, reliability and affordability. What is needed is the ability to integrate s ...

  10. New Sensing Capabilities: GaN Based Dualband UV-IR Detectors

    SBC: NDP Optronics LLC.            Topic: AF05029

    The proposed innovation is the development of a novel dual band detector responding in both the UV and IR regions, based on a GaN/AlGaN heterostructure. The IR response is based on HEterojunction Interfacial Workfunction Internal Photoemission (HEIWIP) detectors, which have been demonstrated using AlGaAs/GaAs structures. By also using interband transitions, response in the UV range can be incorpor ...
