57 Awards Won

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Kerberos International, Inc.

Institution: Southwest Research Institute

Agency: Army
Topic: A15A-T008
Budget: 09/22/16 - 09/21/17

Americas current electronic warfare (EW) capabilities are insufficient for the modern and future battlefield. In order to safeguard against radio-controlled threats and disrupt enemy communications, our current EW systems blindly jam broad swaths of the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS), an approach that also disrupts GPS and blue force data and vo...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Technology Assessment & Transfer, Inc.

Institution: Southwest Research Institute

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T005
Budget: 05/20/16 - 12/30/16

Technology Assessment and Transfer will demonstrate the potential of novel, low friction and low wear coatings that are capable of providing long term durability for air cycle machine foil bearings. A systematic approach with a high probability of success includes the following: unique low friction, wear resistant alloys and lubricating ceramic ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Kerberos International, Inc.

Institution: Southwest Research Institute

Agency: Army
Topic: A15A-T008
Budget: 09/15/15 - 03/14/16

Electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) supremacy is vital to the success of the war fighter; spectrum dominance, however, is becoming increasingly more difficult with advances in signal processing algorithms and device technologies. Realistic training environments are essential to properly prepare the war fighter for the non-permissive, congested, cont...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: UHU Technologies LLC

Institution: Southwest Research Institute

Agency: Army
Topic: A15A-T013
Budget: 09/14/15 - 03/16/16

A GPS receiver based system with associated antenna array design is proposed to provide continuous information for attitude determination. This system will adapt to GPS jamming, and spoofing threats, to maintain navigation in contested environments. The approach utilizes two dimensional, beam steered arrays which point a minimum of four beams ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Southwest Sciences, Inc.

Institution: Southwest Research Institute

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T6.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 06/17/16

Southwest Sciences Inc. (SWS), in collaboration with the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), will develop a reliable, ultra compact, low power diode laser multigas sensor to measure carbon dioxide (CO2), ammonia (NH3), oxygen (O2) and water vapor (H2O) concentrations in the presence of saturated and condensable water concentrations appropriate ...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Elder Research, Inc.

Institution: Southwest Research Institute

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T12.02
Budget: 06/11/15 - 06/10/17

The technical objectives of this program are: (1) to develop a set of physics-based modeling tools to predict the initiation of hot corrosion and to address pit and fatigue crack formation in Ni-based alloys subjected to corrosive environments, (2) to implement this set of physics-based modeling tools into the DARWIN probabilistic life-predictio...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Transparent Armor Solutions

Institution: Southwest Research Institute

Agency: Army
Topic: A14A-T017
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

This proposal will investigate body armor systems to the effects of burst fire. In Phase I, the team of researchers will investigate the spatial distribution of impacts of common burst fire capable rifles, demonstrate a statistical analysis technique, and demonstrate a ballistic model approach while applying this research to a surrogate body ar...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Vishwa Robotics and Automation LLC

Institution: Southwest Research Institute

Agency: Navy
Topic: N13A-T010
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

The specific research objectives of this program are to develop a rugged and human equivalent (human-sized, multi-fingered with opposing thumb) underwater robotic hand that mimics the dexterity of a gloved diver and that can replace existing 1-DOF pliers on Navy Atmospheric Diving Suits (ADS) and Navy UUV (Unmanned Underwater Vehicles) without a...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Robotic Research LLC

Institution: Southwest Research Institute

Agency: Navy
Topic: N13A-T016
Budget: 09/26/14 - 03/30/16

Robotic Research, LLC (RR) and Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) are creating a prototype Learning-based Approach for Relevant Data Extraction (LARDE). The LARDE framework is a data extraction and handling framework that can intelligently reduce the volume of raw data from on-board sensors, and organize and persistently store the reduced relev...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Kerberos International, Inc.

Institution: Southwest Research Institute

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF14-AT28
Budget: 09/23/14 - 06/23/15

ABSTRACT: Kerberos and SwRI plan to develop and evaluate new monitoring and broadcasting methods in a laboratory environment in the context of expected current and future military RF operating environments. Our proposed solution, called Electromagnetic Spectrum Monitor & Broadcast System (EMBS), will create a low-cost, small packaged device tha...
