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. A Novel, Low Cost and Handheld Microwave Sensor for the Detection and Evaluation of Incipient Composite Heat Damage

  2. A Novel, Low Cost and Handheld Microwave Sensor for the Detection and Evaluation of Incipient Composite Heat Damage

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N131013

    Due to their high specific strength and light weight properties, polymer matrix composites (PMCs) are increasingly used in a wide variety of military and civilian aircrafts. The mechanical strength of PMCs can be dramatically compromised when such materials are exposed to various heat sources during operation and maintenance. It has been shown that PMCs can lose up to 80% of their mechanical stren ...

  3. A Platform-Independent Framerwork for Efficient Massively Parallel Execution

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: OSD11T02

    Next-generation high-performance computers (HPCs) are built as massively parallel systems where the parallelism exists at many levels. These systems are a collection of nodes all working together. Each node generally contains more than one processor and each processor contains multiple cores. Managing and efficiently utilizing the different parallelism in such a system is a complex task. Furth ...

  4. A Proactive Countermeasure to Harden Integrated Circuits Against Exploitation

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: OSD10IA1

    We propose to implement a novel countermeasure against the exploitation of integrated circuit hardware. The proposed countermeasure is applicable to both FPGAs and ASICs, increases design obfuscation and promises to block embedded hardware exploits. It also is fully compatible with virtually any other hardware exploit countermeasure and reduces forensic costs when exploits are suspected. The propo ...

  5. A Sophisticated Low Cost Avionics for Expendable Unmanned Aircraft

    SBC: CLOUD CAP TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    "For years Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have failed to deliver on their promise to revolutionize the remote-sensing industry. Their potential for small size and low cost has been offset by the lack of sufficient avionics hardware and softwareintegration resulting in expensive vehicles that are difficult to maintain, and suffer from high rates of attrition. The recent introduction of the Motor ...

  6. A Sophisticated Low Cost Avionics for Expendable Unmanned Aircraft

    SBC: CLOUD CAP TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    In phase I a development project that Cloud Cap Technology began in 1999 came to fruition when we demonstrated the successful operation of our Piccolo avionics system for small unmanned aircraft. Our efforts culminated in a multi-day demonstration in Yumawhere we successfully completed a series of autonomous flights that conclusively demonstrated the feasibility of our hardware and software archi ...

  8. A Thermal and Stress Analysis of the Manufacture of Arresting Hooks

    SBC: Clarksean & Associates            Topic: N/A

    Clarksean and Associates proposes to analyze the cracking of arresting hooks that occurs during the manufacturing process. The analysis process will consider the hardface coating, fusing,and heat treatment of the arresting hooks. The modeling approach uses separate finite element software packages to analyze the thermal (FIDAP) and residual stress formation (NIKE3D). A unique one-dimensional su ...

  9. A1GAAS/GAAS SUPERLATTICES

    SBC: Crystal Specialties Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN INVESTIGATION IS PROPOSED THAT WILL EXAMINE THE PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE GROWTH OF HIGH QUALITY A1GAAS/GAAS SUPERLATTICS IN METALORGANIC EPITAXIAL REACTORS. THE TECHNICAL APPROACH WILL BE TO SELECT THE MOST PROMISING ADVANCES MADE IN THIS FIELD AND INTEGRATE THEM INTO A SINGLE ADVANCED DESIGN METALORGANIC REACTOR FOR LARGE SCALE PRODUCTION OF GAAS, A1GAAS AND THE ASSOCIATED MULTILAYER STRUC ...

  10. ABL (Airborne Laser) Detection Sensor Improvements

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA06054

    Recent and emerging technologies, such as a 3-D LADAR tracker with precise target detection, tracking, and aimpoint imaging could make significant gains for ABL’s capabilities. Solid state avalanche photodiodes (APDs) are a rugged, fully-monolithic detector technology well suited for LADAR focal plane arrays (FPAs). In the past, Geiger mode APD operation has been preferred for tasks requiring se ...
