The SBIR.gov award data files now contain the required fields to calculate award timeliness for individual awards or for an agency or branch. Additional information on calculating award timeliness is available on the Data Resource Page.
Evaluation of High Performance Computing Enabled Multiple-Target Tracking Based on Massive Parallelism for Urban Surveillance AreasSBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC. Topic: AF13AT10
ABSTRACT: Threat detection of people, vehicles, and others as well as person-vehicle interactions (dismounts) of possible malicious intent are difficult problems due to the complexity of the problem space. The wide area motion imagery (WAMI) systems aid analysts to track and identify dismounts, but typically produce an overwhelmingly large amount of information. The large scale data input challeng ...STTR Phase II 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: SEAKR ENGINEERING, LLC Topic: AF11BT12
The SEAKR team proposes to continue development of the advanced protocol routing system begun in the Phase I effort, to reduce risk toward a flight deployable system for SATCOM assets such as Iridium NEXT. SEAKRs development of the Iridium NEXT modem...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: NEXTGEN AERONAUTICS, INC. Topic: AF14AT01
Increasing system capabilities in terms of weapon systems, ISR payloads, GNC, etc., enabled by smaller and more capable electronics systems have led to a trend for overall size reduction in military aircraft. This has resulted in a reduction in the avail...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ATOM INC Topic: AF15AT15
ABSTRACT: In this project, we propose to develop the baseline process to form low source-drain contact resistance to the CNTs. This includes finding the right metal stack and annealing recipe to form good ohmic contact to the CNTs. The goal is to achieve a resistance less than 25 k at per nanotube contact. To reach such goal, we will leverage the interfacial dipole alignment of conjugated polyelec ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC. Topic: AF15AT19
ABSTRACT: The hydrocarbon-fueled scramjet is capable of providing hypersonic air-breathing propulsion for high-speed applications. The effective operation of high-speed air-breathing engines (ram- and scram-jets) over a wide range of flow parameters (velocity and altitude) is one of the most technically difficult challenges in the design of hypersonic vehicles. The most promising approach to overc ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC. Topic: AF15AT21
ABSTRACT: The need for improved performance of liquid rocket engines requires efficient wall cooling technologies to mitigate high heat fluxes from hot combustion gases to the engine wall in the thrust chamber. High heat fluxes to the chamber liners can be overcome by fuel film cooling (FFC) of the inside chamber using the liquid propellant. Moreover, the thermal cracking of the fuel creates coke ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Small Sample Size Semi-Supervised Feature Clustering for Detection and Classification of Objects and Activities in Still and Motion Multi-spectral ImaSBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF15AT35
ABSTRACT: Toyon Research Corp. and the Penn State Univ. propose research and development of innovative algorithms for classifying objects and activities observed in high-dimensional data, including video and hyperspectral imagery. The proposed algorithms include novel feature clustering techniques to enable effective characterization of intra-class and inter-class appearance variations in datasets ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc. Topic: AF14AT09
ABSTRACT: Current methods for inspecting the external surface of manned and unmanned low-observable (LO) aircraft are time consuming and error prone. Technology that can reduce inspection times and minimize human error will benefit the Air Force by significantly increasing aircraft reliability and availability while reducing lifecycle maintenance costs. To address this need, Intelligent Automat ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC. Topic: AF14AT16
ABSTRACT: This proposal presents an Air Force Satellite Control Network (AFSCN) upgrade scheme using smart antenna and cognitive satellite radio techniques. On the remote tracking station (RTS) side, switched beam smart antenna, distributed beam forming technique, multiple access technique based on FDMA and/or CDMA are applied to obtain multiple satellites reception objective. On the satellite si ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC. Topic: AF14AT17
ABSTRACT: In this proposal a Game-theoretic Universal Anti-RFI Defense (GUARD) framework for Satellite Communications is proposed. Key components of the GUARD framework include i) Radio Frequency Interferences (RFI) modeling and impact evaluation infrastructure, which allows the evaluation of the impact of RFI from various sources, and provides a comprehensive RFI knowledge base to SATCOM; ii) RF ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
