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 Flexible Integrated Optical Chip Based Sensor Network for Aircraft Leak Detection

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: AF131206

    ABSTRACT: To address Air Force needs for a networked sensor system for detecting aircraft leaks and environmental contaminants that cause corrosion, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a micro-miniature, flexible integrated optical chip (FlexOChip) sensor for aircraft leak detection. This proposed sensor could be cemented to the aircraft to detect chemical leaks from fluid lines ...

  2. Integrated Aircraft Sensor Network for Real Time Leak Detection

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: AF131206

    ABSTRACT: Aircraft damage resulting from environmental exposure and fluid leaks constitute a major portion of the costs associated with aircraft repairs and lead to significantly reduced mission readiness. The ability to identify contaminant exposure within airframes and inform maintenance personnel of leaks, corrosive environments, and chemical contaminants in difficult to access areas will all ...

  3. Non-Silicon and Non-Boron based Leading Edges for Hypersonic Vehicles

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: AF141001

    ABSTRACT: This Phase I SBIR program seeks a novel process to produce the new hybrid ultra-high temperature (UHTC) ceramic composites that can survive the hypersonic flights. The new process will produce a very unique grain and graded microstructure that can offer high strength (>100 kpsi), high fracture toughness (>10 MPam), and high thermal shock resistance, and high oxidation resistance o ...

  4. Advanced Ceramic Matrix Composite Leading Edge Materials and Processing for Hypersonic Vehicles

    SBC: Ultramet            Topic: AF141001

    ABSTRACT: In previous work for MDA and the Army, Navy, and Air Force, Ultramet demonstrated the fabrication of carbon fiber-reinforced refractory carbide matrix composites for missile and railgun projectile nosetip and aeroshell applications using a rapid, low-cost melt infiltration process. The composite materials have undergone extensive high temperature testing under laser and arcjet heating c ...

  5. Epitaxial Technologies for SiGeSn High Performance Optoelectronic Devices

    SBC: ARKTONICS, LLC            Topic: AF141002

    ABSTRACT: Silicon-based lasers/detectors have long been desired for owing to the possibility of monolithic integration of photonics with high-speed Si electronics and the aspiration of broadening the reach of Si technology by expanding its functionalities well beyond electronics. The goal of this project is to first develop high quality SiGeSn material and then use it to demonstrate prototype opt ...

  6. Heterojunction GeSn based Photonic Devices

    SBC: QuantTera            Topic: AF141002

    ABSTRACT: Si photonic devices based on GeSn materials will be very important for the MWIR. The Air Force recognizes the need for next-generation high-performance photonic materials in the SWIR to MWIR infrared spectrum, due in part to the atmospheric high transmissive windows in this wavelength ranges. Due to materials limitations, silicon based photonic devices have not been utilized in this wa ...

  7. Variable Precision Filters

    SBC: The Athena Group, Inc.            Topic: AF141003

    ABSTRACT: In this Phase I SBIR project, the Athena Group, Inc., will develop a mathematical framework and expert system design tool for robust and highly efficient filter design. The developed tool will be capable of designing filters that have challenging requirements, such as sharp transitions, narrow subbands, and/or complicated passband structures. The developed expert system will be able to ...

  8. Robust, automatic design of highly efficient, variable precision filters

    SBC: The Numericus Group, LLC.            Topic: AF141003

    ABSTRACT: The Numericus Group, LLC (TNG) is proposing a paradigm shift for digital filter design, opening a number of technological opportunities that TNG is uniquely qualified to pursue. At the heart of this new paradigm are algorithms that are guaranteed to converge and do not require an expert to oversee their operation, unlike many existing algorithms commonly used today. The new approac ...

  9. SMART Bandage for Monitoring Wound Perfusion

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF141005

    ABSTRACT: Continuous supply of oxygen to the tissue is essential for wound healing and resistance to infection. Oxygen provides the additional energy source for the repairing process. In the early stage of wound repair, fibroblasts start to migrate, divide, and produce collagen. To promote fibroblast proliferation and collagen synthesis, oxygen must be present in sufficient quantities. Angiogenes ...

  10. Bulk Non-Equilibrium Materials by Shockwave Consolidation

    SBC: TXL GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF141006

    ABSTRACT: Phase 1 research will validate an approach for material synthesis that combines mechanical alloying with explosive powder consolidation to produce bulk materials with novel properties. The main advantage to the approach is that it can be applied to diverse material systems, including the creation of alloys with otherwise insoluble constituents. An additional advantage is that it has a ...
