Abstract:The electricity produced from fossil fuels is essential to the prosperity and security of the world. On the other hand, increasing atmospheric concentrations of CO2 caused by the fossil fuel combustion is causing concern regarding global warming. Although there are several methods for separating… more
Abstract:Large farms and feedlot operations produce large quantities of manure in a small area. Anaerobic digester units capable of producing pipeline quality methane installed at each farm or dairy could be instrumental in eliminating the difficulties associated with the transport of manure off site. If… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: UV-curable powder coating is an attractive technology which produces a high quality coating with far less environmental impact than conventional coating processes. Powder systems are solvent-free and thus they reduce air pollution emission and reduce waste by eliminating the disposable of… more
Abstract:The majority of the unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs) run on batteries. However, extended missions (or high-power, short-duration missions) require a much higher energy density than can be stored in batteries. Fuel cells, such as the Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFCs) Systems, can be very efficient and… more
Abstract:Ship superstructures are increasingly being constructed from marine-grade aluminum alloys (5XXX-series) because they are lightweight and strong. However, sensitized 5XXX series alloys are vulnerable to inter-granular corrosion which manifests itself as stress corrosion cracking (SCC) and exfoliation… more
Abstract:The cost and availability of logistic fuels is becoming an important factor to the success of the military operations. There is also extra vulnerability rendered by the military"s dependence on this sole energy source for all operations. Hence, the army is interested in developing capability… more
Abstract:Today"s military must be highly mobile and carry all necessary equipment and supplies with them. A major limitation to mobility is the need to carry fresh water. Although there are military systems that can treat any source water for drinking, their size, weight and large energy requirements… more
Abstract:The development of new, robust, lightweight systems for CO2 removal during EVA is a crucial need for NASA. Current activity is focused on extending mission times without increasing the size and weight of the portable life support system (PLSS). Although CO2 sorbents that can be regenerated during… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This Phase II effort will significantly expand upon our novel animal tracking and recognition work accomplished during Phase I, culminating in the development and construction of two different types of system prototypes. Part I of the Base effort will focus on enhancing the algorithms… more
Abstract:The ability to accurately catalog and search through repositories of human images has been difficult to achieve for several reasons. The most common approach, manual tagging of images with textual descriptions, is a laborious process. Such tags are often misleading or incorrect. Securics, Inc. has… more
Abstract:Overall biometric system performance depends on data quality, the strength of the biometric matching algorithms, the compatibility of data quality with matching algorithms, and quality of the overall integrated system. For long-range face image acquisition and processing for tactical biometrics,… more
Abstract:The Arctic as a region of particular sensitivity to climate change. In the past few decades, the annual average temperature over the Northern high latitude land surface has risen at almost twice the rate of the global average, disrupting the region and its people. Clouds are the primary factors… more
Abstract:Advancements are needed to improve and optimize the performance of existing and future nuclear power plants and nuclear power systems by developing and improving the reliability of advanced instrumentation. Improvements and advances are needed for systems and component technologies that ultimately… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Intelligent Robo-Pallet SBIR program objective is to introduce a high-level of autonomy into the Air Force 463L air cargo handling operations to reduce the manpower and use of material handling equipment necessary to maneuver cargo as compared to the standard 463L pallet. In the Phase… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: During this work Tech-X Corporation in partnership with George Washington University will develop a tool (Nautilus) for modeling weakly ionized plasmas. Specific tasks of this project include development of a reacting multi-fluid electrostatic code to complement the electromagnetic… more
Abstract:An integral component of many NASA missions involves remote sensing of the environment, both terrestrial and celestial. This is a challenging problem, since quantities of interest typically can not be directly measured but instead must be inferred. These inferences are made by solving inverse… more
Abstract:The successful operation of the Department of Energy X-ray light sources, free electron laser, and linear accelerator facilities depends on providing reliable photocathodes for generation of low emittance, high-brightness electron beams using conventional lasers. Experiments on GaAs-based… more
Abstract:Bottlenecks for instrument scientists currently lie in computational and data workflow complexities, and a lack of tools that allow real-time refinement to occur while samples are still in the instrument. Using the Genetic Algorithm Driven Decision Support System (GADDSS) the instrument user can… more
Abstract:Advanced visualization has become a ubiquitous tool in science, as a way to accelerate discovery and as a productivity tool for debugging scientific software. Unfortunately, visualization tools presently lack the ability to represent edge-centered, face-centered and other types of staggered data,… more
Abstract:Each year, over 115,000 patients in the US need to have their diseased heart valves replaced with artificial devices. Although bioprosthetic valves are considered ideal, they wear out in about 15 years and are thus used primarily in the elderly who are notexpected to outlive the valve. Younger… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The Vero cell line is used in the production of viral based vaccines. The use of cell based vaccines based on the Vero cell line is growing. The majority of the vaccines in use today are produced using cell culture medium supplemented with serum. The use of… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The objective of this effort is to develop an interface between a scintillation simulator and a communications terminal that will enable Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) satellite testing. BENEFIT: Welkin Sciences has experience with fading channel simulator design, having… more
Abstract:To meet the goals for SBIR topic MDA10-003, Welkin Sciences, LLC will upgrade three important tools needed by DoD's strategic communication: 1) the CommLink computer simulation code; 2) the CommLink Defined Transceiver (CDT) software defined radio and prototyping platform; and 3) the (CoLTS)… more
Abstract:The now rapidly developing field of plastic materials based on renewable resources (bioplastics) provides tremendous opportunities to sustain and enhance the domestic plastics industries, the fourth largest manufacturing sector of the American economy. In addition, bioplastic materials are derived… more
Abstract:Cold spray has many benefits compared to conventional thermal spray including lower deposition temperatures, higher bond strengths, less substrate preparation and better control of coating composition, phase structure, and oxide contamination. In cold spray, particles are accelerated by an expanding… 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.
