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. Novel Structural Joining Concepts Using 3-D Textile Preforms and Composites

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF05248

    Strength and durability of commonly used bonded and bolted composite-to-composite and composite-to-metal structural joints suffer from sharp geometry variations, mismatch of elastic moduli, Poisson's ratios, coefficients of thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of the adherends, altogether causing high stress concentration and premature joint failure. The proposed work introduces several nove ...

  2. Laser discrimination of unresolved space and airborne targets based on the effects of surface correlations on the backscattered state of polarization

    SBC: ADVANCED OPTICAL TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: AF05002

    Changes in the state of polarization of scattered laser radiation can be utilized to discriminate among targets according to surface microstructures on the wavelength scale. Newly-developed rigorous electromagnetic coherence theory is applied to the inverse problem of laser discrimination of unresolved space and airborne targets based on the effects of surface correlations on the backscattered st ...

  3. Helicopter Remote Manipulation of External Slingloads (HERMES)

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: A05057

    Helicopter operations in low visibility conditions and sling load operations continue to add risk to aviation operations. If slingloads could be picked up without use of a ground crew, lives could be saved. In addition, a sensor that could detect obstacles as well as the load would help in low-visibility conditions. We propose to develop such a system. It will include the mechanical structures nec ...

  4. Ducted Fan Model for Real-Time Rotorcraft Flight Simulation

    SBC: ADVANCED ROTORCRAFT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: A04089

    There have been increased applications of the ducted/shrouded fan as a safe, low noise, and effective anti-torque device for modern rotorcraft. Ducted/shrouded fans have also attracted much interest as the main VTOL lifting devices for recent uninhabited air vehicle (UAV) developments because of their compact structure and high lifting performance. This proposal is dedicated to the development ...

  5. Ducted Fan Model for Real-Time Rotorcraft Flight Simulation

    SBC: ADVANCED ROTORCRAFT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: A04089

    The ducted/shrouded fan has become widely adopted in modern rotorcraft as a safe,low noise, and effective anti-torque device. Ducted fans have also found popular applications as the main VTOL lifting device for recent uninhabited air vehicle (UAV) and flying automobile developments because of their compact structure and high lifting performance. The proposed research is dedicated to developing a h ...

  6. Visualization Tool for Animating Combined Multibody Dynamics and Computational Fluid Dynamics Simulations

    SBC: Advanced Science And Automation Corp            Topic: A04238

    The objective of the proposed work is to develop a tool for real-time interactive visualization of the results of combined CFD and multibody dynamics simulations of tanker vehicles and sloshing liquid payloads. The tool can be used for the following: 1) visualization of an animation of: liquid surface, iso-surfaces, vehicle, terrain and surroundings; 2) making any part of the model semi-transparen ...

  7. Multi-channel, Bi-directional, User-programmable, Radiation-hardened, High-speed Voltage Level Converter

    SBC: Advanced Science and Novel Technology            Topic: AF04042

    Existing and future complex command and control systems used in avionics and satellite electronics utilize radiation tolerant (RT) components from a number of logic families with different data rates and I/O interfaces. The resulting incompatibility of blocks and subsystems increases with the migration of the modern electronics to lower power supplies in attempts to reduce its overall power consum ...

  8. Low Power Ultra-Fast Analog-to-Digital Converter with Integrated DSP

    SBC: Advanced Science and Novel Technology            Topic: AF05019

    The front end digital processing of a communications satellite/warfighter typically consists of an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) followed by a demodulator and Digital Signal Processor (DSP). The integration of both functions in an ADC/DSP monolithic Integrated Circuit (ADIC) is an effective way to overcome the difficulties associated with propagation delays and transmission line effects in the ...

  9. Novel Routes of Drug Administration to Enhance Compliance in Soldiers

    SBC: ADVANCED SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A04201

    WHO estimates that between 300 and 500 million new cases of malaria occur each year and annual deaths from the disease number between 2 and 3 million. Although there are several compounds known to be effective for treating malaria, including quinine, doxycycline, primaquine, azithromycin, and erythromycin, side effects associated with the oral administration of these drugs results in incomplete m ...

  10. A CAD Tool for Virtual Laser Shock Peening of Rotorcraft Components

    SBC: ADVANCED STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: A05063

    The objective of this project is to develop a test-validated CAD tool for performing virtual laser shock peening(LSP) simulations of rotorcraft components. Virtual LSP peening can be used, in conjunction with virtual fatigue testing, to conduct simulations to assess the effects of variations in process parameters, i.e., laser beam power density and size, number of layers, and the overlay pattern ...
