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.
SBC: SCIENTIFIC FORMING TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION Topic: N10AT028
While there are established methods available in determining the fatigue life of critical rotating components, there is still room for improvement for better understanding and prediction of life limiting factors. Improved risk assessment of jet engine disk components would require probabilistic modeling capability of the evolution of microstructural features, residual stresses and material anomali ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP Topic: OSD09T002
Military shelters currently use electrically driven Environmental Control Units (ECUs) to provide cooling for the air inside the shelter. The ECU is vapor compression cycle powered by a diesel generator, operating on JP-8 fuel. Other than fueling jet engines, the largest drain on U.S. military fuel supplies in current operations comes from running generators at forward operating bases. In hot cli ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Strategic Insight, Ltd. Topic: N10AT018
The research objective is to develop Modeling and Simulation (M&S) tools to accurately predict the performance of new state-of-the-art material systems as protection for high value missiles deployed in their launchers or canisters. The focus is on adapting multi-layered novel and non-traditional material technologies to improve protection against penetration and fragment impacts, focused detonatio ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP Topic: N10AT037
In miniature gas turbines for UAV applications, traditional bearings exhibit a typical lifetime of only 25 hours due to excessive axial loading. Mainstream proposes to use a passive, permanent magnet thrust bearing to alleviate this problem and increase service life to over 1000 hours. Since this type of bearing is non-contacting, it can operate at very high rotational speeds with minimal heat gen ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: GRAMMATECH INC Topic: N10AT035
Software is rarely written entirely from scratch. Typically, third-party commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components are integrated into larger software systems used both in the commercial sector and in critical infrastructure. Third-party components often come in binary form, e.g., as dynamically linked libraries, Active X controls, or plain executables. That is, the source code for those componen ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: ZEL TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: N10AT004
Non-invasive, stealthy nature of passive remote sensing combined with its low cost make passive techniques a promising supplement or replacement of traditional active remote sensing techniques. Coherent processing of diffuse wave fields has a proven potential for remote sensing of stationary environments. The proposed research extends noise interferometry to characterization of dynamic environment ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
Collective Meta-Reasoning Runtime Assurance of Machine Intelligence for Unmanned Autonomous VehiclesSBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC. Topic: N18BT032
Barron Associates has teamed with a prominent researcher in the field of formal verification of cyber physical systems to propose a new paradigm in runtime assurance for complex autonomous systems controlled and operated by artificial machine intelligence. A two-stage approach is considered in which formal verification processes are first performed offline at algorithm design time. Online, during ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: XL SCIENTIFIC LLC Topic: N18BT032
To realize the full potential of autonomous systems, it is imperative that they behave safely, correctly, ethically, and legally. Providing these assurances through offline verification alone is insufficient, due to the complex and changing nature of autonomous systems. Online monitoring and corrective actions are necessary to account for uncertainties, and to increase trust between a human superv ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED Topic: N18BT031
Autoclaves are typically used to fabricate high-quality composite components with acceptable thermal properties and low void volume. They provide elevated temperature processing cycles and external pressure required for adequate compaction to achieve these desired properties. However, autoclaves represent large capital and energy investment while limiting the size of fabricated parts and productio ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP Topic: N18BT031
For this research program, Mainstream will collaborate with Colorado State University (CSU) to develop a nanostructured heater capable of curing aerospace grade composites out-of-autoclave (OOA). The use of autoclaves is the primary cost driver in composite manufacturing due to size limitations, long processing times, and inefficient energy usage. Therefore, the Navy is looking to develop a nanost ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
