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. Integrated Human Engineering Toolset for Engineering of Complex Systems

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Alphatech proposes to develop an integrated human engineering toolset to support the effective design of complex human-machine systems. The toolset will be based around two central concepts: human-centered engineering and integrated tools. By human centered engineering we mean a system designed around human capabilities. By integrated tools, we mean a seamless set of software tools that can exchan ...

  2. Adaptive Data Fusion Technology

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The prodigious amount of information provided by surveillance systems and other information sources has created unprecedented opportunities for achieving situation awareness. However, due to the fact that Air Force missions are constantly evolving and specific user information needs are not predictable in advance, it is necessary to devise fusion control strategies that are adaptive to user needs ...

  3. ISR Strategy Optimizer

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This research effort will develop technology for optimizing strategy selection for a set of airborne intelligence collection platforms. This problem is important because of the need to maintain precise situational awareness of the battlespace given limited assets of different types/capabilities. Developing, analyzing, and comparing multiple strategies is difficult because of the large number of ...

  4. Compound Core Active Multimode Fiber for High-efficiency Fi

    SBC: Altair Center, Llc.            Topic: N/A

    Altair Center proposes to develop a novel and innovative compound-core multimode active flber for high-efficiency fiber laser systems capable to operate in a single-mode regime. The compound multimode core of the fiber is especially designed in such a way to support propagation of a higher order mode exhibiting a sharp peak of its field in the central region of the core. The sharp-peak mode extrac ...

  5. Low Cost Deposition of YBCO Films for Advanced HTS Conductor Applications


    This program develops and demonstrates an innovative, low cost, solution and non-vacuum based process for deposition of YBCO on continuous, textured metal tape substrates. It is easily scaleable for long lengths of continuous conductors, and is an inherently more cost effective as it is scaled.Recent advances in the deposition of thick YBCO films have demonstrated that fabricating practical, long ...

  6. Actively Cooled Minority-Carrier Devices for Power Conditioners


    New power semiconductor device performance is limited by cooling because high heat-flux cooling systems have not matched their increased power density. Therefore, real designs rarely achieve device ratings. American Superconductor (ASC) demonstrated CryoPower+, which cools a variety of power MOSFET topologies by direct immersion in coolants from 77-300K, with boiling where appropriate. CryoPower ( ...

  7. Low Loss, High Temperature Superconducting Wire For Inductive Energy Storage


    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase l project is proposed by American Superconductor Corporation (ASC) to establish the feasibility of hermetically manufacturing small-filament, high temperature superconducting (HTS) composite wires for use above 20 K in AC magnet applications such as inductive energy storage devices. HTS magnet wire applications will typically operate under fluctuating ...

  8. Oxidation Resistant, Non-Magnetic Substrates for YBCO Coated Conductors


    This DOE SBIR proposal explores cost effective production of non-magnetic substrates which will have a major role in the production of YBCO coated conductors. Deformation textured substrates offer a cost-effective way of texturing. The substrate will be produced using inexpensive raw materials and processing. A novel feature is the production of a solid solution alloy with an excellent cube textur ...

  9. A System to Enhance Team Decision-Making Peformance

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In complex human-machine systems such as military command and control (C2), corporatestrategic planning, air traffic control, and computer-supported collaborative work, the scope and complexity of the task often require that the decision-making function be distributed over several humans organized in distributed or collocated teams. For this project, we propose to enhance a proven research tool, ...

  10. Computer-based Tool for Information Flow Analysis of a Complex and Adaptive Theater Warfare System

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In complex command and control architectures, warfighters must clearly understand the impact of information flow on information management and decision-making processes. To cope with rapidly changing mission environments, complex, information-rich theater warfare systems must adapt their information structure (who should know what, and when) to survive and dominate the battlespace. The Informati ...
