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. Dimensional Evaluation of Aircraft Fuel Cells

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF141209

    ABSTRACT: Aircraft fuel cells are flexible rubber-coated fabric enclosures for the containment of fuel within aircraft cavities. The overall envelope dimensions and locations of interface fittings and attachment elements such as lacing ferrules and hanger baskets are critical to the proper function and durability of the fuel cells. The existing method of dimensional inspection is to install the f ...

  2. Enhanced Fuel Cells From Wastewater Treatment (Bacteria Generated System) as a Renewable Energy Source

    SBC: FTL Labs Corporation            Topic: AF141211

    ABSTRACT: Microbial fuel cells (MFC's) use metabolic reactions inside bacteria as a source of electrons. Wastewater treatment processes with MFC's employ bacteria to generate electrical power produced as they breakdown organic materials captured from wastewater. FTL Labs Corporation (FTL) proposes a powerful new enabling technology for wastewater power generation using high-capacity flo ...

  3. Method for Evaluating Candidates for Additive Manufacturing (AM) Processes

    SBC: IMAGINESTICS, LLC            Topic: AF141213

    ABSTRACT: A challenge which continues to present a barrier to the utilization of AM and wide spread adoption is knowing when to use the technology. This is particularly problematic in aerospace and in MRO operations because the technology is still emerging, and knowledgeable, experienced practitioners remain in short supply and will likely remain so until the next generation of technicians and en ...

  5. Method for Evaluating Candidates for Additive Manufacturing (AM) Processes

    SBC: Keystone Synergistic Enterprises, LLC            Topic: AF141213

    ABSTRACT: The primary objective of the Phase I project is to establish the feasibility of applying a methodology to assess a candidate legacy part to determine the viability of using Additive Manufacturing methods to produce the part. This objective will be accomplished by creating a guided decision framework that determines if a part aligns with the critical process characteristics and economic ...

  7. Real-Time Safety-Assured Autonomous Aircraft

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF141214

    ABSTRACT: Aurora Flight Sciences, in collaboration with Worcester Polytechnic Institute, proposes the development of the Real-Time Safety-Assured Autonomous Aircraft (RTS3A) system. The system dynamically performs decision-making based on both sensed and predictive information to carry out adaptive missions and maintenance. This system leverages sensing capabilities distributed throughout subsyst ...

  9. Path Planner for Dynamic Environments

    SBC: TORC Robotics, INC.            Topic: SB082030

    ABSTRACT: Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) have shown promise enhancing a number of military missions; however, most successful autonomous systems have been employed in highly structured environments. To enable operations in militarily relevant, unstructured environments at an operational tempo, a number of obstacle avoidance and planning challenges must be overcome. A viable autonomous system sh ...

  10. Innovative Information System Technologies: Real-Time Monitoring and Correlation of Multiple Streams of Information from Heterogeneous Sources

    SBC: ITCN, Inc.            Topic: AF03094

    ABSTRACT: Legacy military aircraft have a long-standing requirement for monitoring bus activity between control elements and weapons/sensor systems. The Bus Characterization and Integrity Toolset (BCIT) was a successful series of Phase I, II, and III SBIRS from 2004 onwards. BCIT was the first of its kind to offer dynamic testing of bus operations and physical cabling by combining a 1553 Monitor/ ...
