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 Definition Fiber Optic Sensing for Expendable Launch Vehicles

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: AF171056

    High-definition fiber optic sensing (HD-FOS) will enable dramatic reductions in the size, weight, and power of flight instrumentation for expendable launch vehicles (ELVs). Lunas distributed fiber optic sensing yields thousands of data points per senso

  3. Highly Sensitive Miniature CTS Force Balance

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: AF181013

    Verification of the proper separation of stores held on aircraft is critical to the mission and safety of the aircraft. Verification comes in the form of comparing the data from simulations, ground testing, and flight testing to determine the direction the device leaves the aircraft and the forces on the device, ensuring it will not break apart. The small size of the various stores being tested pr ...

  4. Optimal Multi-Sensor Fusion for BDA using Bayesian Networks

    SBC: CoVar Applied Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF181019

    The application of HPEM weapons to disable enemies electronic capabilities is hampered by the lack of practical tools for electronic BDA. To provide real-time, high-resolution BDA in complex, noisy environments requires the use of multiple sensing modalities interpreting diverse signals related to different types of target electronic components. To aggregate and interpret the data from these varie ...
