Abstract:We present a technical approach for the design of a small, portable, microwave cold atomic clock that meets the frequency stability requirement of less than 1X10-12 at 1 s averaging time and less than 5X10-15 for an averaging time of 1 day in the followin
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Compact precision atomic clocks are capable of satisfying the time-keeping needs of both the Air Force and potential civilian applications. The path towards integration remains a long one, however, as optical clocks currently occupy optical tables in the relatively benign environment of… more
Abstract:GPS systems suffer from vulnerabilities that are rooted in poor clocking abilities as a result of substandard PLL technology. Gain ICs has invented the world"s fastest Phase Locked Loop (PLL) technology which vastly improves signal transmission in terms of signal to noise ratio (SNR),… more
Abstract:Oceanic refractivity gradients induce operational and security concerns of naval operations. Continuous passive characterization of refractive effects upon visble, IR, and radio/RADAR electromagnetic propagation through passive relatively inexpensive multiband IR camera observations is enabled with… more
Abstract:Accelerator magnets that are currently being used in high-energy physics experiments are limited to a maximum magnetic field of about 20 T because superconductivity in the low- temperature superconductors (LTS) from which the magnets are constructed breaks down at higher fields. The only way to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The USAF Aircraft Structural Integrity Program (ASIP) community has the difficult task of planning for and maintaining an aircraft fleet without the corrosion protection of chromate coatings. Unfortunately the protection provided by chromate has been built into current life prediction… more
Abstract:NorthWest Research Associates proposes to develop a prototype system to forecast solar flares for NOAA/Space Weather Prediction Center. Many activities and technological systems prevalent in today’s society—air traffic control and air travel, the power grids, communications, deep-water drilling… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Electrolytic Hard Chrome (ECH) is the standard coating method for 4XXX steels used in actuators and depot-based repair of damaged items. The properties of EHC coatings are excellent, and as a result EHC coatings have been used for more than 50 years. Unfortunately, EHC plating uses… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Etched Air Taper Combiner as fist proposed by the US Air Force Academy has the advantages in that the input fiber bundle, the combining section, and the output to the gain fiber can be individually improved and optimized and then the components are spliced together to create the… more
Abstract:The neurocognitive health of U.S. service members plays a vital role in the defense of the United States. It is critical to a service member"s effectiveness, to force readiness, and it is a key component of a service member"s successful reintegration into family life and society following… more
Abstract:Capco proposes using materials developed in previous SBIR obscurant research efforts to prepare UVCM devices for test and evaluation. UV absorption will be optimized through particle geometry and processing parameters.
Abstract:The sophisticated laser systems required for producing cold and ultracold matter represent a major complexity in the quest to transition cold atom sensor technologies from the lab to the harsh environments of the real-world. There is a substantial need for compact, robust, and easy-to-implement… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Program Phase I project will demonstrate innovative new technology for high precision, non-contact 3D imaging and metrology with order of magnitude improvement in lateral resolution, depth of field, and measurement speed over existing commercial optical… more
Abstract:Currently, the most successful approach for table top soft-Xray and EUV (Extreme Ultra-Violet) sources, is that of High Harmonic Generation (HHG), where a high intensity pulses are used to drive frequency conversion from a noble gas in a hollow core fiber. This configuration allows phase matching,… more
Abstract:There are a significant number of people in the U.S. whose literacy deficits significantly limit opportunities for written self-expression, including individuals with intellectual disabilities. While this population can offer revealing insights given their unique perspectives, self-expression often… more
Abstract:People with intellectual disability depend a great deal on work for their quality of life. Working in community-based jobs can make substantial differences in income, relationships and self-esteem. Technology has improved opportunities for this population to independently express their career… more
Abstract:Envisioned Navy applications ranging from shore-based microgrids to directed energy weapons pose energy storage performance, cost, and scalability requirements that far exceed the capabilities of today"s technologies. Electric double-layer capacitors (EDLC) can meet most power demands ($/kW and… more
Abstract:ADA Technologies is teaming with the Colorado School of Mines, Raytheon and Q-Peak to propose the development of a novel Maritime Atmospheric LIDAR (MAC-LIDAR) capable of providing critical atmospheric characterization information to support the effective operation of next generation laser weapons.… more
Abstract:ADA Technologies, in collaboration with SCUBAPRO, proposes to develop an ultra-high-pressure SCUBA system capable of supplying Navy divers with vastly increased air capacity to allow longer submersion time. This system employs multiple small composite cylinders and a custom first-stage pressure… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The stable and reliable operation of megawatt-class, high-temperature power electronics is critical for military aircraft operations. In particular, military aircraft emphasize mission capability as one of the primary objectives, thereby making reliability of power systems components one… more
Abstract:The weight, volume and storage capacity benefits of current and future high energy density storage systems make them attractive options to complete far-reaching and ambitious missions. Safe packaging of these devices has lagged and as a result, a few significant events have taken place, highlighting… 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.
