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. Development of a Sensitive, Autonomous Quantum Cascade Laser-Based Detector for Ammonia

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The USDA recognizes the need for improved instrumentation to monitor atmospheric ammonia which is a major environmental concern and a health hazard. Ammonia is a public health concern at high levels, as can be found in animal feed lots. At low levels, ammonia is a source of particulates which are not only a human health problem but also affect visibility and global climate. It has been estimated t ...

  2. Chemical Quick Quench Probe for Engine Emissions Measurements

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: AF05301

    A need exists to determine the true chemical composition of the exhaust gases from aircraft engines, aircraft combustors and rocket engines. Measurements of these high-speed reacting flows are important for determining the combustion efficiency of these devices and guiding efforts to engineer reduced-emissions engines. Unfortunately, the sampling system used to deliver exhaust gases to the analyze ...

  3. High Burn Rate Hybrid Fuel for Improved Grain Design

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: X601

    A novel type of fuel providing high burning rate for hybrid rocket applications is proposed. This fuel maintains a hydrodynamically rough surface to radically enhance convective heat transfer rate, and hence the fuel burn rate. This is achieved by incorporating a particulate fuel material dispersed within a continuum phase polymer matrix. The dispersed fuel material is chosen to transition f ...

  4. Renewable Electric Energy Source for Special Operations Force (SOF) Maritime Combatant Craft

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM05001

    An electric power source is needed that is two-man portable or lighter, operates on logistics fuels (JP-8, diesel), is quiet, and has a low thermal signature. We propose the MICE (Miniature Internal Combustion Engine) generator that is currently being developed by Aerodyne Research to deliver 500 W electrical power using logistics fuels. The design for this MICE generator will weigh less than 16 ...

  6. High Reliability Mechanical Fiber Optic Splice

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N04002

    The proposed approach provides a high performance mechanical optical fiber splice of single piece construction. Leveraging on advanced glass and polymer material processing technologies, the new splice design offers advantageous attributes of compactness for use with minimum space intrusion, passive self-alignment of the fiber core in all directions, easy guided fiber insertion, quick action, an ...

  7. Enhancing Charge Injection and Device Integrity in Organic LEDs

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 35b

    75905S Solid state lighting based on organic light emitting diodes (OLED) offers significant gains in power efficiency, color quality, and lifetime, with less cost and environmental impact than traditional incandescent and fluorescent lights. However, currently available OLED devices do not meet the power efficiency and lifetime requirements for general lighting. Among several limiting factors, ...

  8. Novel Infrared Imaging Fiber Optic Bundles

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF04292

    This program addresses the development of a new fiber bundle technology for infrared imaging in the spectral range of 1-12 microns. Currently there is no single fiber system that covers this broad wavelength range. Agiltron proposed technology relies on the excellent IR properties of heavy halides (MXn, where X=Cl, Br, I), the only materials with the broad-band spectral transparency required. Base ...

  9. Waveband-Switchable Low Cost IR Camera

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A04117

    Based on our recent progress in a proprietary optical MEMS IR camera technology, Agiltron Inc. proposes to develop a revolutionary approach to produce an uncooled IR imager whose operation band is switchable between broadband coverage of the combined MWIR and LWIR spectrum and only the MWIR region. The design has fundamental advantages in cost and performance compared with the competitive approac ...

  10. High Performance and Low Cost Sniper Riflescope Detection Lidar

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A05006

    Dual Source Enemy Identification and Negation Lidar (DSEINL) is a preferred method with wide field of view and high detection rate to find and identify enemy combatants and sniper rifles by receiving the co-reflected or retro-reflected light from the sighting riflescope or the enemy combatant¡¦s eyes. The sighting scope mounted on weapons, such as sniper rifles, has a reticle plate fixed on the ...
