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. Coherent Imaging Laser Source

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF131150

    ABSTRACT: Coherent imaging systems have the capability to provide high-resolution 3D imagery for target identification at stand-off ranges. These systems require relatively short pulse width, transform-limited linewidth pulsed lasers with high pulse energy to illuminate the target of interest. Here we proposed to demonstrate and build near 1550nm single frequency fiber laser with pulse energy of ...

  2. Precise Estimation of Geo-location Uncertainty

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: AF131153

    ABSTRACT: As unmanned aerial vehicles have become equipped with high-quality cameras, the warfighter has gained access to large quantities of video and motion imagery with both wider areas of coverage and finer resolutions. For these data to be truly useful, the warfighter needs to be able to precisely geo-locate any pixel in the imagery. As no geo-location algorithm will be perfect, the warfig ...

  5. Innovative Unified Damage Mechanisms-Based Model to Predict Remaining Useful Life for Rotorcraft Structures

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N14AT002

    Most of current available methods for prediction of fatigue failure -such as cumulative damage models, cyclic plastic energy hypothesis, crack propagation rate models, and empirically-derived relationships -are based on empirical relations and their application requires many unknown parameters that must be experimentally determined or calibrated for specific locations/critical areas. Also, the afo ...

  6. Prediction of Remaining Useful Life of Rotorcraft Structures with a Fiber-Optic-Based Sensing System and a Unified Damage Mechanism-Based Model


    IFOS proposes to develop a fiber-optic-based sensing system and a unified damage mechanism model utilizing an integrated fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor system for prediction of remaining useful life of rotorcraft structures. The proposed new rotorcraft damage modeling technique makes it possible to incorporate temperature and acoustic emission (AE) measurements with load tracking techniques for ...

  8. Ultra-Lightweight, High-Efficiency Epitaxial Lift-Off Solar Cells and Arrays

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: N14AT003

    MicroLink Devices and the University of Notre Dame propose to develop an ultra-lightweight, high-efficiency, GaAs-based, multi-junction solar cell that will be suitable for use in future platforms requiring very high specific power (>3.0 kW/kg) and very high areal power density (>370 W/m2). We will achieve this result by reducing the metal content of MicroLinks current inverted metamorphic (IMM), ...

  10. Technologies for the Suppression of Combustion Instability or Screech

    SBC: William P.Peschel, Engineering Consultant            Topic: N14AT004

    Conduct comprehensive experimental tests using an existing microwave generated plasma igniter (M/W Igniter) that provides a continuously stabilized heat release source to suppress augmentor combustion instability or screech and to reduce the lean blowout (LBO) and light-off (LO) limits in modern/advanced or legacy augmentor flameholders. The test flow environments will include known combustion tes ...
