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. Decision Assistance, Visualization, and Intuitive Natural Control Interface (DAVINCI)


    Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) proposes the Decision Assistance, Visualization, and Intuitive Natural Control Interface (DAVINCI), a system that provides decision assistance through a multi-level topic-mapped knowledge base, abstract visualization of situational and metric data, and high-level abstract control of manually initiated and autonomic response protocols through a tangible use ...

  2. Crypto-Partitioning Aware PEP for Tactical Networks (CAPTAIN)


    ABSTRACT: The USAF has identified the need for a ciphertext-side (CT-side) proxy to enhance the performance of military applications operating over a crypto-partitioned GIG environment. Such a capability is needed because the plaintext-side (PT-side) performance enhancing proxy (PEP) approaches that are currently employed suffer from one or more of the following limitations: (1) Poor performance ...

  4. D-HAMMER: Distributed Highly Autonomous Mission Manager for Event Response

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF112069

    ABSTRACT: SIFT proposes to design D-HAMMER a real-time autonomous on-board constraint- and model-based planning system to meet the challenges of fielding responsive, survivable, and cost-effective on-board autonomy for Air Force satellites. D-HAMMER is a three layer on-board autonomy architecture that combines a high-level mission planner and coordination system, a threat response planner, ...

  5. Robust, Lightweight Wiring for Space Applications

    SBC: Minnesota Wire & Cable Co.            Topic: AF112093

    ABSTRACT: The military have been challenged to find ways of effectively shielding sensitive electronic equipment from electromagnetic interference (EMI) without adding a lot of weight to satellites (the more massive they are, the more fuel they need to achieve orbit). Copper wiring comprises one-third of the weight of a 15-ton satellite. Half of this wire weight is typically in the EMI shieldin ...

  6. High-Temperature Microsample Testing System

    SBC: HYSITRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF112126

    ABSTRACT: A better understanding of the thermo-mechanical response, characteristics and properties of materials can lead to improved device performance as well as facilitate the design of new devices and materials for various applications. Although there has been significant progress in the development of micro/nanomechanical testing techniques and tools over the last decade, commercially availab ...

  7. Enforcing Integrated Circuit Trust Via Unified Multi-Level Countermeasures

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: AF112151

    ABSTRACT: This project will investigate the feasibility of an integrated multilevel system for protecting space assets from system hardware and firmware exploitation. The overall strategy is to provide greater collective system protection as a whole than would otherwise be available from the sum of the independent defenses. Rather than relying on a loose-knit collection of isolated point solution ...

  8. Conformal Load Bearing Antenna Structure

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF121003

    ABSTRACT: American Semiconductor will develop and demonstrate structural integration of a conformal load bearing antenna structure (CLAS). Future aircraft will incorporate distributed electronics, sensors, and flight control transducers directly into the composite airframe. For near-term Air Force applications, adding RF electronics into the CLAS will improve the performance of a wide variety o ...

  9. Alternatives to Gold-Plate Engines for Test Cell Correlation

    SBC: Aero Systems Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF121215

    ABSTRACT: The traditional approach to establishing test cell correlation factors is expensive and time consuming requiring multiple engine runs to establish a parametric database for comparison. While a complete alternative to this process, is unlikely, it is clear that there are procedures and tools that can be implemented to minimize the cost and expense of the actual correlation process. The o ...

  10. New Intrusion-Resistant Virtualized Adaptive Network Architecture (NIRVANA)


    ABSTRACT: With increased connectivity and integration with other DoD networks the threat of cyber attacks on space operations assets has become significant. Hence, the Air Force has identified a need to protect satellite operations centers (SOCs) from cyber attacks for mission assurance. Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC), as part of its Phase I effort, successfully established the fea ...
