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. High Gain Common Data Link (CDL) Antennas for Networking UAV Nodes

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: N131007

    In this Phase I effort, FIRST RF will develop and evaluate concepts enabling highly directive multi-beam TCDL communications using phased arrays integrated on the Fire Scout UAV platform. Phased array systems allow for dynamic beam steering with graceful degradation. Wide elevation patterns desirable for air-to-air or air-to-ground communications are achieved by using a linear array topology. Thes ...

  2. Advanced Materials for Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Capture

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N161040

    Current submarine air revitalization systems use liquid and/or solid amine-based carbon dioxide (CO2) removal technologies. The legacy hardware, using the liquid amines, is prone to scaling and other complications from the use of a liquid. These solvents also have a short lifetime which requires frequent replacement, and generates hazardous material wastes that are complicated to handle.TDA Resear ...

  3. Stretcherless, Femtosecond mJ Fiber Amplifier with Coherent Pulse Stacking

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories Inc.            Topic: N161063

    KMLabs will construct a stretcher-less mJ-class ultra-short pulsed laser system at repetition rates in excess of 20 kHz. Our proposed laser system combines coherent pulse stacking technology developed at the University of Michigan by Prof. A. Galvanauskas with KMLabs stretcher-less fiber amplification technology. Using a GHz class fiber oscillator and frequency comb stabilization techniques, we wi ...

  4. Environmentally-Friendly Method for Cleaning Sealed Suppressors

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N162077

    Sealed suppressors are routinely used by the U.S. Marines, both in the field and on practice ranges. Suppressors are critical, not only to help obscure the location of a sniper, but also to protect the shooter from hearing damage. Sealed suppressors are susceptible to significant fouling that degrades their accuracy and that can lead to failure of the suppressor, particularly when they are used at ...

  5. Compact Vapor Cell Technology for Rydberg‐Atom RF Metrology

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: NA

    ColdQuanta seeks to develop compact, stemless vapor cells designed specifically for high-accuracy RF electric field (E-field) metrology with Rydberg atoms. Sensors utilizing these vapor cells can take advantage of Rydberg atoms’ exceptional sensitivity to RF, microwave, and millimeter radiation between 1 and 1000 GHz. Featuring resolutions down to the uV/cm level, the accuracy of these devices w ...

  6. Optimization of a unique freezing system for boar sperm


    The ability to freeze boar semen provides several advantages including disease reduction, more rapid genetic transfer, genetic banking, and more precise correlation with optimum female fertility. Although freezing is routine technology in many livestock species, it is not so in teh swine industry. Unfortunately, in boars, sperm quality inconsistencies and poor fertility make this technology commer ...

  7. Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Traffic Management (UTM) for Wildland Fire Management

    SBC: Unmanned Experts Inc.            Topic: 81

    Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and small UAS (SUAS) technology hold great promise for facilitating the management of wildfires on forest lands. However technology is only a small part of the problem of integrating UAS into fireground operations. Significant concerns must be addressed about the coordination of air assets in the high-risk operational wildland fire airspace environment, which can be ...

  8. Development Of A Microbial Metabolite-Based Biostimulant To Enhance Profitability And Competitiveness Of Controlled Environment Agriculture

    SBC: GROWCENTIA, INC.            Topic: 813

    Tomato growers face multiple challenges: low profit margins, increased crop stress, and strong global competition. Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) is an increasingly important component of a sustainable supply chain for tomatoes and other specialty crops, but incurs high capital costs. New technologies are needed to increase the competitiveness of US tomato growers, whether in CEA or fiel ...

  9. A Compact, Low Cost, Broad Range, Hyperspectral Imager for Precision Agriculture

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 813

    Hyperspectral imagery produces images that include colors both within and beyond the range of colors that can be seen by the human eye. Hyperspectral Imagery allows for the classification, identification, and detection of vegetation phenomena that relate to the agricultural industry, including: plant species identification, insect and disease detection and monitoring, stress detection, soil qualit ...

  10. Novel Oxidant Product Formulation for Greenhouse Disinfection

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    The greenhouse requires an environment that has optimum nutrients, temperature, water and light so that it is conducive to rapid, healthy plant growth. Undesirable organisms also grow in such an environment, including disease-causing microbial plant pathogens and slimy microbial biofilm organisms that are difficult to remove and can cause worker hazards. Growers need a universally effective antimi ...
