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. Solid State Switched Array Impulse Source

    SBC: Pulse Power Physics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Powerful ultra-wideband impulse sources are currently developed for application to high resolution impulse radar, material penetrating radar, susceptibility testing, ECM, high power jammers, and covert communications. One approach to radiating the narrow impulses uses laser controlled photoconductive solid state switching (PCSS) to coherently drive arrays of multiple radiating antennas. Because ...

  2. The Development of a Fieldable Laser Diode Wound Stabilization System

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    With the development of compact, rugged laser diodes that can be powered with bateries, it appears that medical procedures that utilize lasers can now be brought into the field environment. The goal of this effort is to develop a fieldable laser diode tissue soldering system for wound stabilization. In this technique, a laser is used to thermally cure a protein solution placed onto a wound. Thi ...

  3. A Novel Mass Spectrometer for Energetic Materials Decomposition Chemistry

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Decomposition studies of energetic materials require rapid (microsecond resulution), highly sensitive detection of a plethora of reaction intermediates and products. The detection system must be able to distinguish among numerous compounds in real time without using traditional methods of chromatographic separation. The proposing company, Southwest Sciences, has invented an improved mass spectro ...

  4. Range Resolved HCL Detector

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The use of solid fuel rockets generates HCL and other pollutants that must be monitored remotely. Differential absorption lidar (DIAL) permits the remote, spatially resolved measurement of many trace atmospheric gases. This proposal describes a novel method for measuring lidar signals that promises tremendous reductions in the size, weight, and complexity of lidar instruments for measuring HCL. ...

  5. UltraLite Optical Control System (ULOCS)

    SBC: SVS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The problem of suppressing acoustically induced vibration in precision equipment is addressed. The study specifically addresses acoustically induced vibration in an airborne optical train. Two approaches will be studied. (1) The first approach is to inertially instrument each optical element, sensing the motion causing optical jitter. The array of vibration measurements are used with a robust ...

  6. Development of Small Inertial Attitude Reference System

    SBC: SVS R&D SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This effort will develop the design for a small and inexpensive inertial attitude system that will provide a two-axis optical inertial reference for a variety of optical pointing and tracking system applications. The unit, which will use all COTS components will have a volume of

  7. Development of Advanced Pointing and Tracking Concepts

    SBC: SVS R&D SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This effort will develop tracking algorithms and design tracking system compensations to operate under atmospheric scintillation. In September of 1997 a series of evaluation tests for three basic algorithms were conducted at Lincoln Laboratory over a range atmospherically scaled to the Airborne Laser scenario. The data showed that two major problems existed with the tracking algorithms, these we ...

  8. Agile Manufacturing-Simulation and Integration Tools

    SBC: TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of agile manufacturing is to increase competitiveness of the US manufacturing base, while addressing DoD priorities, with a combined goal of improving US global competitiveness and national security. To achieve this objective, significant changes in technology and infrastructure must occur. This proposal addresses a significant component of these required changes, a Next Generation C ...

  9. Ultra Sensitive Integrated Magnetic Field Sensors for Fuze Applications

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Military ordinance is becoming increasingly sophisticated to upgrade safety and accuracy. Improved environmental sensors are needed to address these issues. A positive indicator of safe separation would materially enhance safing mechanisms. Effective ordinance range would be extended if environmental information were used to track a round's location. TPL proposes development of ultra sensitive, ...

  10. Advanced Method for Manufacturing Erosion Resistant Gun Barrels

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The complexities of barrel erosion are manifested in thermal, mechanical, and chemical interactions. Gun tubes made from refractory metals have excellent barrel erosion resistance, but are costly to manufacture. A need exists for an economical technique to line gun barrels with erosion and wear resistant materials. TPL will demonstrate a three unit operation process for cladding liners into gun ...
