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. Automated, Intelligent Life-Cycle Cost Modeling

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: OSD05-CM2

    As the longevity of weapon systems continue to increase, operations and support (O&S) costs account for a larger percentage of the total system life-cycle cost. Yet O&S costs are often under estimated, especially early in the development cycle when 80% or more of the total ownership cost is "locked-in" by design decisions. Developers and planners require an approach to estimate the O&S cost impact ...

  2. Structured Approach for Business Case Planning of Missile Defense Systems

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: MDA05-061

    Current pressures on the Department of Defense (DoD) budget are forcing managers to provide strong business justification for their programs or face serious budget reductions if not cancellations. Programs must prove their value, particularly to the operational elements, both in technical and economic terms. Programs must show that they are cost effective, can be developed, produced, and fielded o ...

  3. Product Assurance Readiness Decision Aide

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: A06-035

    As weapon system development dollars become scarce, it is imperative that decision makers understand the traditional cost vs performance trades as well as concept maturity and production risks. The objective of this program is to demonstrate the feasibility of a product assurance decision aide that supports the collection of manufacturing lessons learned and synthesizes product assurance data int ...

  4. Decision Support Technologies for Weapon System Logistics Investment Decisions

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: AF06-016

    The defense procurement budget has fallen significantly from its peak, and DoD and the military services are demanding more performance for less cost. Credible engineering and logistics analysis tools and methods are needed to assess realistic benefits of proposed investments. The Logistics Composite Model (LCOM) provides an important assessment capability to ensure operations and support data fro ...

  6. Target Image Transformation and Transfer

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: A05-015

    Frontier Technology, Inc. (FTI) and University of Florida (UF) propose to develop and analyze designs and prototype software for a system that will resize, transform, compress, and transfer target imagery and associated reference points from a Fire Control System to an autonomous small caliber projectile for storage. The proposed POSIT system would assist the LFLSP (future SSMSA) onboard target cl ...

  9. Computer Algorithms and Models/Simulations

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: BMDO02-010

    The environment within the Department of Defense for acquiring weapon systems has been rapidly changing. Even with the recent terrorist activities, the defense procurement budget has dramatically fallen from its peak, and DoD and the Military Services are demanding more performance for less cost. Gone are the days when new systems could be acquired simply for reasons of greater performance. Now th ...

  10. Lean Techniques for Project Management in the Acquisition Environment

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: AF04-135

    With pressure to shorten acquisition cycles, provide more capability, and reduce costs, the DoD has initiated acquisition reforms, which in part focus on reducing acquisition cycle times. Managers involved in acquisition processes are routinely estimating project task completion dates. In large projects, the uncertainty of these estimates, various customer constraints, and resource limitations can ...
