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. Broadband Fiber Optic Components for DoD Applications based on Tellurite Glass Fibers

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF181055

    Development of passive optical fibers and fiber-based components for transport and distribution of laser energy between optical components and around an optical platform would be a great advance in laser and optical system design. Particularly compelling would be fibers and fiber-based functional elements capable of transmitting laser power with low loss over a wide wavelength range from UV to LWI ...

  6. Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) for Moderate Data Rate Communications (MMDR)

    SBC: W5 TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF171043

    The Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) is designed to replace UHF SATCOM with enhanced capacity and performance, modern crypto and modern protocols. The MUOS waveform is being ported to a number of software defined radios (SDRs) that will soon be fielded and capable of utilizing the MUOS network of geosynchronous satellites and ground transport. Once these radios are in place, the process of movi ...
