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. Autonomic 3-D Fire Targeting System

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N101060

    In this program, Agiltron will partner with Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) to build, test, and deliver to the Navy a 3-D Fire Targeting System that will be the first such system to meet the requirements for exterior shipboard fire detection in next-generation Navy warships, such as the Zumwalt-class DDG-1000 destroyer. The 3-D Fire Targeting System uses multiple thermal mapping cameras ...

  2. GPS Reference While Submerged

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N091091

    Knowing the exact submarine position while submerged is critical for the Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) submarine programs to ensure mission success. Based on the fiber sensor technology, AGILTRON proposes to realize a distributed sensor device to determine the relative location of a GPS device to its submarine mother ship. The sensor has a high precision over a long distance, and is suitable fo ...

  3. Hull Contamination Measurement

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N101066

    We propose to develop a system to identify hull surface contamination, such as lubricants and amines formed during the coating process, using a measurement technique that can be adapted to a ship construction environment. The method we propose is laser light scattering, specifically standoff Raman scattering, to provide a noncontact, high-speed, accurate method of checking for and chemically ident ...

  4. Micro Gimbal with Gradient Index Lens Technology

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N101017

    Building on our experience in fiber lens array beam steering, gradient index optical component design and fabrication, and high quality precise optical system design, AGILTRON proposes to produce an micro gimbal with gradient index lens technology. It includes four key optical modules: (1) precise pointing module; (2) coarse pointing module; (3) angle magnifier module; and (4) laser designator mod ...

  5. Ultra-Broadband Fiber Optic Electrical-Field Sensor

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N06028

    This program addresses the development of non-intrusive, broad band, high sensitivity microwave electrical field sensors. Non-intrusive high frequency electrical field probes of high sensitivity have both military applications in fields of high power microwave weapon (HPM) development, and wide commercial applications. By leveraging the significant progresses of RF field sensing technologies with ...

  6. A New Class of Low Bend Loss Multimode Fiber Ruggedized and Qualified for Avionic Applications

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N08115

    Agiltron proposes to produce a new class of multimode fiber that is more durable and bendable yet less cost to replace the current mil-spec qualified fibers used in aerospace. Our approach is a combination of an advanced trench index cladding fiber design that prevents light leaking-out in tight-bend and ruggedized multi-layer carbon/polyimide coatings that is most effective against harsh environm ...

  7. Micromegas Particle Detector

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 46b

    Improvements in high energy particle accelerator detectors are needed to realize their potential for new discoveries in basic physics. The micromegas detector could achieve the best performance and lowest cost for the large structures required. Reducing critical dimensions and optimizing material choices is expected to increase gain, count rate and stability. Agiltron will use new lithography ap ...

  8. Instrumentation for Nanoscale Spectroscopy

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT30

    We propose to develop a combination Tip-Enhanced Raman Scattering and Shear-Force Microscopy (TERS-SFM) instrument to study the composition and morphology of nanoparticles, surfaces, and biofilms on any substrate material. The instrument developed during Phase I will rely upon Scanning Tunneling Microscopy combined with TERS (TERS-STM) to test the effects of various excitation wavelengths and tip ...

  9. Generation of bivalent aptamers with high affinity and selectivity for detection of viruses and bacteria from environmental samples

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB091003

      Better methodologies for the rapid detection of pathogenic bacteria and viruses are needed. A particular problem with current antibody-based assays is cross-reactivity with similar, but harmless, species. Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. proposes developing nucleic acid-based affinity reagents (aptamers) against botulinum neurotoxin, as well as against a model pathogenic virus (VSV) and ...

  10. Semiconductor Neutron Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 1012

    In the proposed program we plan to investigate novel semiconductor neutron detectors based on the wide bandgap, lithium containing compositions LiMgP LiMgAs and LiZnP. The goal of the program is to produce detector quality crystals and to demonstrate efficient thermal neutron detection, with the possibility of providing neutron gamma discrimination. We will examine the synthesis and purification o ...
