Abstract:The NASA's PATH mission includes the GeoSTAR satellite that carries aboard a microwave sounder employing an array of 375 microwave antennas with corresponding receivers. Each receiver is tuned to the 180GHz frequency, while the intermediate frequency (IF) reaches 500MHz. The IF signal is… more
Abstract:Modern flight-critical systems include hundreds of thousands to millions of lines of code. The Boeing 777, for instance, includes over 2 million lines of code. Future projects will only feature an increasing amount of source code, mostly written in the C programming language. The only way to… more
Abstract:This Phase I project is relevant to the ultimate goals of this program announcement given the prevalence of the IED which often creates complex burn wounds on the face and skin that often form hypertrophic scars that often contract over time. Burn wound healing is a complex process that includes… more
Abstract:Improvements in body armor, availability of equipment, and decreased patient transport times have dramatically improved Soldiers"survival of combat injuries. Data suggests that future conflicts will require more aggressive wound management at the point of injury to deal with more complex… more
Abstract:In this SBIR Project MagiCom proposes several innovative concepts to develop a light weight and low power communication system to enable small kill vehicle communications in flight. The proposed Communications Concept will have the lowest possible weight impact on the KV. MagiCom proposes an… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The expense in operating legacy aircraft is reduced if the aerodynamic performance can be improved. Many of these aircraft were designed before modern prediction methods and flow controls were available and it is probable that operating costs could be reduced if recent advances were used.… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Investing in innovation that moves toward the widespread use of satellite autonomy has the potential to yield significant benefits to the space situational awareness (SSA) community. Most notably, if satellite platforms have the ability to detect and respond to events without exchanging… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This program develops a Modular Propulsion system design and demonstration test bed that continues the efforts of the Phase I program that established the feasibility of a green propellant based modular propulsion system. Two reduced toxicity propellants will be considered: LMP-103S and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Incorporating hosted payloads onto satellites deployed for other primary missions is an approach that has the potential to provide benefits to both the hosted payload user community and the host satellite providers. But getting rides to space and accommodation on a dedicated satellite bus… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: We propose to develop and demonstrate a rapid store trajectory analysis tool that uses pre-computed, highly-resolved Detached Eddy Simulation (DES) Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) data which has been compressed and stored in an easily reusable and distributable format. The tool will… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Air Force has identified the need to improve satellite communications by increasing bandwidth, yet seeks to accomplish this without increasing the antenna payload footprint and without introducing vulnerability to transmission interference or jamming. One mature and popular… more
Abstract:NASA's future X-ray astronomy missions will require X-ray optics that have large effective areas, are lightweight, and cost effective. Recent X-ray telescopes, such as the Chandra Observatory, utilized reflectors made from zerodur which were up to 20mm thick. The thickness of the reflector as… more
Abstract:The ability of soldiers to determine the locations of other personnel within their vicinity based upon line-of-bearing estimates of radio transmissions is of great importance to the army. The relative positions of both friends and foe within the area of operations provides great tactical advantages… more

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
