Abstract:The future net-centric military provides enhanced battlefield awareness through wireless links between unmanned aerial vehicles, high-speed aircraft, rotary-winged platforms, and soldiers on the ground. To support this, platforms must accommodate a variety of antennas, not to mention traditional… more
Abstract:SATCOM On-The-Move (OTM) is one of the greatest operational and tactical advantages our troops have. The SATCOM terminals available pose a number of practical constraints resulting in less than universal usage. Traditional reflectors are high profile and difficult to integrate on aircraft and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: FIRST RF proposes a two pronged, pragmatic approach intended to provide antenna solutions for both small and large UAS platforms operating in L/S/C & Ku bands. Larger aircraft, such as the global hawk, have relatively fast cruise speeds where extra drag incurred by external components… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The proposed research will develop and validate a pragmatic approach to modifying existing ground station antenna systems to mitigate the spectral congestion. Furthermore, this solution is a natural building block for future AFSCN ground station capability growth and can serve to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: In the nearly 36 years since the first NAVSTAR GPS satellite was launched, GPS has grown into one of the most important and widespread technologies used by modern military and civilian systems. While the legacy GPS constellation continues to provide support for most military applications,… more
Abstract:A multiband SATCOM terminal solution is identified conforming to low profile rotary wing aircraft constraints. The architecture incorporates commercially available RF electronics and components in a unique package that precludes manual reconfiguration to support alternate SATCOM datalinks. This… more
Abstract:The objective of the proposed Phase I effort is to investigate the feasibility of a broadband High Power Radio Frequency (HPRF) antenna system that is capable of handling power of 1000 MW over a wide bandwidth including mid VHF to L-Band. It is desirable that the antenna occupy minimal volume when… more
Abstract:FIRST RF Corporation proposes the development and integration of a low-cost, low-SWaP, Integrated System for Avoidance of Ice-producing Airborne Hazards (ISAIAH). This system will be lightweight (~15 lbs) and draw minimal prime power (less than 100W), but will dramatically widen the window of… more
Abstract:In this Phase II effort, FIRST RF will demonstrate array technology enabling highly directive multi-beam TCDL communications using phased arrays integrated on the FireScout UAV platform. Phased array systems allow for dynamic beam steering with graceful degradation. Wide elevation patterns desirable… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: For decades, very low frequency (VLF) links have been an important part of Air Force"s worldwide logistics infrastructure and response-coordination capability. With an increasingly-global proliferation of nuclear capability, Air Force faces an urgent need to update legacy VLF… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The current lack of a simple, low-cost, and high bandwidth communication system on C2ISR (Command and Control, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) aircraft prevents the Air Force from realizing the full capability of its airborne reconnaissance and surveillance assets. The… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: High speed communication channels and tactical data links are becoming increasingly important for both military and commercial applications. The need for high speed inter-flight communication and data transfer is validated by the existence of the Intra-Flight Data Link (IFDL) for the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The United States Air Force (USAF) has a need to upgrade communications systems on board Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicles (EELV"s). Video monitoring of Launch Vehicles (LV"s) during all stages of orbit insertion provides invaluable information about the health and status of a… more
Abstract:The small size of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) platforms along with the need to reduce drag to increase flight time creates a need for low-profile antennas. The oldest solution, a mechanically steered parabolic reflector, does not provide a low profile. The modern electronically steered phased… more
Abstract:Frequency stabilized lasers are essential subsystems in many applications. Most importantly, they are used as flywheel oscillators in optical atomic clocks, as well as in many sensing and measurement systems, and some examples are down oil well sensing, laser radar and ranging in space, and… more
Abstract:High Precision Devices, Inc. (HPD) proposes to continue and complete development of the 25 kW Flowing Water Optical Power Meter for Laser Measurements begun under a Phase I SBIR award. In the proposed Phase II work described, HPD will complete mechanical and electrical subsystems, apply a ceramic… more
Abstract:Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become a primary diagnostic tool in scientific research and clinical imaging. Despite the excellent image quality that can be obtained with today’s MRIs, images acquired using different MRI systems and during longitudinal studies are not reproducible, and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose to eliminate the time-consuming manual plate readout for hemagglutination assays by developing an innovative 96-well plate and associated optical reader capable of accurately and rapidly determining hemagglutination (+/-) and associated titer values in… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): It is widely acknowledged that for split vaccines, potency determination is often a rate limiting step. The FDA approved gold standard potency assay for influenza hemagglutinin (HA) protein-based vaccines is single radial immunodiffusion (SRID). SRID is a time… more
Abstract:Feral swine (Sus scrofa, or more generally known as "wild pigs") populations in the United States inflict serious and growing ecological and economic impacts to the farming and ranching ecosystems where the population continues to grow and invade new territory (see http://digitalcommons… more
Abstract:In this proposal, HF Designworks (HFDW) and Alion Science and Technology (Alion) describe an approach for developing a concept for an operational console modernization tool. This tool will assess potential console designs in terms of several key factors: their adherence to human factors design… more
Abstract:Planned future NASA missions in astrophysics will push the state of the art in current opto-mechanical technologies. Specifically, precision deployable structures will be required to facilitate large aperture deployable optical telescopes given current and foreseeable payload volumes. Fundamental to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This proposal addresses an important need of DoD and MILSATCOM for satellite based receivers operating at Ka-Band having multiple beams (as many as 30) capability. Many of these beams need to be independently steered. This has traditionally been a major challenge because, as will be… more
Abstract:Pure oxygen helps produce energy from coal with fewer greenhouse gases. Current oxygen production systems are expensive. ITN proposes an oxygen separation system using pulsed magnetic fields and polymer magnetic beads to separate oxygen from air for coal gasification plants/syngas production, as a… 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.
