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. Electronically Actuated Pixelated Aperture for High Sensitivity WFOV Imaging in Sunlight

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF173013

    In this Phase I SBIR, a Voxtel Inc.-led team will develop and prototype a novel low-cost solar-brightness-blocking optical system for imagers to enable high-quality imaging over a wide field of view (FOV > 90 degrees) in the presence of direct sunlight within the FOV. The system will be based on a biologically inspired compound eye, with built-in small-FOV (< 3 degree) apertures to block sunlight ...

  2. Metallic Glass

    SBC: TXL GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF173014

    Amorphous metals have an advantage over the crystalline form in that they have high hardness and high elastic energy, however, the need to reduce crystallization speed has constrained both the material choices and the application space.This Phase 1 project will carry out a survey of the state-of-the-art in metallic glasses, driven primarily by interviews with contemporary researchers in the field. ...

  3. Development of bulk metallic glass components for spacecraft applications using thermoplastic forming

    SBC: Supercool Metals LLC            Topic: AF173014

    Ever increasing demands on space, aerospace and defense applications require non-traditional approaches to materials and processing methods. Bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) are unique materials that combine properties of ultrahigh strength metals with processability of thermoplastics, which is often paired with other attractive attributes, such as high resilience, fracture toughness, hardness, and co ...

  4. Developing Aluminum-Based Metallic Glass Alloys for use in the Additive Manufacture of High-Toughness Aerospace Components

    SBC: NANOAL LLC            Topic: AF173014

    The additive manufacture of metal components from powder feedstocki.e. the net-shape, three-dimensional forming of a component, layer by layer, from a computer filehas gained popularity in the last nearly three decades, evolving from a method of rapid prototyping to rapid manufacturing. These methods are inherently far-from-equilibrium and present a significant, economical method to fabricate bulk ...

  7. Model Based Systems Engineering Big Data Analytics

    SBC: SECURBORATION INC            Topic: AF173015

    Securboration Inc. will focus on Pre-milestone A and develop an innovative tool to support Systems Engineering Enhancement of Digital-thread (SEED).Pre-milestone A was selected since it will have the greatest impact on the acquisition process if SEED is able to provide a living Analysis of Alternatives (AoA)/Draft Capabilities Development document that will be used to drive the Digital Thread/Digi ...

  8. Model Based Systems Engineering Big Data Analytics

    SBC: Vistology, Inc.            Topic: AF173015

    The amount of cross-domain data available to the designer today, and the speed at which it continues to grow is unprecedented. The data often come from heterogeneous sources that were developed independently, without a consensus on the syntax or semantics. The integration of the heterogeneous data is possible because of the access to its respective metadata, or data about data. The availability of ...

    SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force


    Spent Rocket Bodies (SRB) from decades of launch of satellites into Earth orbit are the largest component of space debris by mass, and they may pose a significant present and future threat to operation of space systems in certain orbits. Most of these objects will remain in place for several more decades before they re-enter the Earths atmosphere and eventually burn up. Recognizing the broader cha ...

  10. TRAC Debris Deorbit Drag (TRAC-3D) Sail

    SBC: ROCCOR, LLC            Topic: AF173016

    The accumulation of orbital debris has become a problem of critical importance to the satellite industry and the DOD.While numerous deorbit systems have been developed in the past decade for small satellites, no practical systems have yet been developed for the large (i.e., > 1,000kg) satellites and spent upper stages that are most likely to destroy other operational LEO assets.To address this cap ...
