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. Axial Pintle Controlled Constant Volume Combustion Bipropellant Pulsed Rocket Motor

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Idealized analysis has shown that, for the same propellant supply pressure, higher performance can be obtained in a constant-volume combustion device than the traditional constant pressure rocket. CFDRC proposes an effort consisting of multiple levels ofanalysis, followed by design and testing of a rocket engine prototype that will substantiate this claim. Recent relevant experience in advanced ...

  2. Multi-Resolution Tool for Rapid Evaluation of New Propulsion and Vehicle Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The project objective is to develop an integrated, hierarchical, multi-resolution tool for comprehensive prototyping and evaluation of new propulsion systems together with the launch vehicle systems. The overall vehicle system and its adjuncts will betreated as a collection of interacting software components coupled by a computational environment. Full and reduced scale component modules will al ...

  3. High Quality E-beam Generation by Advanced Multipurpose Pseudospark Switch

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    CFD Research Corp. proposes the development of an Advanced Multipurpose Pseudospark Switch (AMPS) e-beam source capable of efficiently generating high average/peak current, bright electron beams. The improvement in e-beam quality (over a classicalpseudospark) stems from the inductive preionization of the hollow cathode chamber, prior to main gap breakdown. The proposed device features similaritie ...

  4. PC Based Dynamic Real-Time Infrared Image Generation Capability

    SBC: CG2, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Infrared image generation for IR sensor development and testing are currently large workstations costing several hundreds of thousands of dollars. Performance and image resolution is the key limiting factors of using PC hardware for this task. Usingdistributed processing, and intelligent algorithms, along with the forthcoming advances in PC graphics hardware; the next generation of real-time image ...

  5. Adaptive Artificial Intelligence for Next-Generation Conflict Simulation

    SBC: John Tiller Software, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is for the design and development of a challenging, adaptable, and extendible A/I system for use in state-of-the-art computer-based wargames. The development will result in a 3rd generation computer wargame based on modern air power conflictand the ability to apply the technology developed for this project in other wargames ranging from tactical ground-based warfare to naval conflic ...

  6. Innovative Applications of Plasma Discharge for Power and Propulsion Technology

    SBC: MEMS OPTICAL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Traditional stationkeeping thrusters for satellites are low-efficient, complex, monopropellant or bipropellant chemical thrusters. The complexity and stored propellant of the thrusters result in satellites with higher dry weights, decreased payloadcapabilities, and thus higher incurred costs.A significant opportunity exists in the area of satellite stationkeeping for innovative propulsion systems ...

  7. Variable Pressure High Speed Test Track

    SBC: MILTEC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Miltec Missiles & Space Company and their subcontractor Secotec, Inc. propose to develop an innovative low cost ejector / diffuser system for economically producing a high vacuum in a very large chamber for use at Holloman AFB High Speed Test Track. Theunique and challenging requirement here is that this pressure vessel total length will most likely be thousands of feet and must be removable. The ...

  8. SuMo SERS: A Novel, High-Reliability CBW Agent Detection System Using Surface-Modified Gold Nanoparticles as a SERS Substrate

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) is a powerful technique for detecting and identifying target analytes, such as CBW agents, even at very small concentrations. However, traditional SERS techniques often suffer from poor reliability andreproducibility. Nanoparticle-based SERS has a tremendous advantage over bulk-surface SERS due to a very high amount of surface area for interaction in a ...

  9. Ecologically Benign Corrosion Protection by Stratified Coatings

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Military aircraft are largely constructed from special aluminum alloys, which typically have secondary precipitate phases that substantially improve mechanical strength. However, these regions also promote corrosion in such common environmental conditionsas acid rain, saltwater, and thermal cycling. The problem is significant enough that the U.S. Air Force expends approximately $1 billion per year ...
