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. Integrated Circuit Authentication and Reliability Tool and Techniques

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: AF161141

    Alphacore is developing an Integrated Circuit Authentication and Reliability Tool that will allow the Air Force to identify and authenticate DER components after they have undergone the DER process. This will apply to older systems, that need replacement parts that are no longer in production and are generally not available from reliable supply sources. Alphacore will develop, fabricate, character ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Manufacturing and Metrology of High Magnetic Permeability Materials for High Efficiency, Wideband, and Conformal RF Antennas

    SBC: Rayn Innovations, LLC            Topic: AF171100

    The critical Air Force need addressed by this effort is the enabling of high efficiency wideband (and ultrawideband) communication in a compact (conformal) form factor that minimizes (or eliminates) penalties of drag and structural reinforcement associated with conventional airborne antennas. Wideband multi-function antennas are the ideal solution to the congested spectrum problem and could lead t ...

  6. All-Fiber Optical Isolators for High Energy Lasers

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF171108

    Ten kW of diffraction-limited output power has been demonstrated, which enables a wide range of new applications from laser welding, laser cutting, and laser drilling to military defense. An isolator is necessary between fiber amplifiers in order to maintain stable operation. We propose to develop and optimize all-fiber isolator using our proprietary Faraday rotation fiber with high Verdet constan ...

  8. A Low-Toxicity, Non-Pyrotechnic, High Yield Visible Smoke Material

    SBC: Ventana Research Corporation            Topic: A17059

    Novel, non-pyrotechnic white smoke formulations will be developed during this effort.Upon aerosolization, these polymers will react with both ambient moisture and nitrogen present in air; producing smoke exhibiting significant obscuring power within visible and NIR spectral regimes.

  9. Near Real-Time LIDAR Processing and Exploitation Algorithm Development

    SBC: Rincon Research Corporation            Topic: A17143

    Todays advanced LiDAR systems typically lack the ability to autonomously detect man-made shapes and structures and provide that 3-D data to Geospatial Intelligence quickly and effectively to aid in tactical decisions. Rincon Research Corporation (RRC) presents its solution to this problem through the design and development of algorithms that perform onboard Automated Feature Extraction (AFE) and/o ...

  10. Air Platform Passive Occupant Protection

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: A18001

    Body flailing during a severe helicopter crash can lead to injury or death when the head and upper torso strike rigid objects within the flail envelope.Currently fielded restraint systems allow a large flail envelope because the strap routing and anchor positions require some body motion to occur before the straps can develop significant reaction loads.Safe, Inc. (Safe) is proposing an alternate d ...
