Abstract:Autonomous inspection systems are necessary to increase awareness of track safety and maintenance issues. However, electrical power for these systems is not available under freight railway vehicles. Mainstream Engineering (MEC)
proposes development of a small-scale diesel generator with an… more
Abstract:In Phase I, Mainstream Engineering demonstrated that a high concentration liquid-fed fuel cell system would significantly exceed the energy density of existing military batteries. In this proposal, we describe our Low Temperature Extended Lifetime Fuel Cell (LoTEL-FC) hybrid power system for… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: A new generation of supersonic weapons will operate at Mach 3-6. Current infrared window materials are unable to withstand the heat generated and temperatures associated with hypersonic flight. In Phase I, Mainstream developed an advanced cooling technology capable of reducing the… more
Abstract:During the Phase I SBIR Effort, Mainstream demonstrated a unique vehicle monitoring system (VMS) for tractor trailer applications. The development was driven by the need to easily store, retrieve, and transfer key trailer parameters to the tractor and the need to electronically transfer key driver,… more
Abstract:Naval ships currently operate independent 60 Hz and 400 Hz power systems, resulting in unnecessary redundancy and high ship costs. A better approach is to utilize existing 60 Hz equipment and place the 400 Hz equipment at the load site. However, limitations in current electronic power densities make… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This proposal outlines a scalable, low-cost procedure for fabrication of hierarchical hybrid nanomaterials that produce ultra-high pressure tolerance and surface area vessels. These vessels enable physical storage of hydrogen through compression and adsorption at densities predicted to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The objective of this SBIR topic is to develop a hybrid electric propulsion system to support a Rapid Response Small SUAS (<30lb) capability. This requires fast dash (>150mph) while maintaining extended endurance (>15 hrs) on station and low acoustic noise operation. Full… more
Abstract:This proposal addresses the single largest consumer of ground-based power at forward operating bases and conservatively results in annual fuel savings greater than $260 million. U.S. forces currently consume about 300,000 barrels of petroleum-based fuels per day. During wartime OPTEMPO, generators… more
Abstract:The largest non-propulsion consumer of Navy shipboard power is HVAC. Up to 87% of cooling loads are generated by equipment that is currently cooled with 80°F air that is produced by a 40°F chilled water supply. Shipboard chiller efficiency can be increased by introducing an intermediate sink water… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The demand for increased thrust from gas turbine engines, while simultaneously reducing engine size and weight, has lead to real challenges for the design of robust augmentors and interturbine burners (ITBs). Reactive flow simulations of augmentors and ITBs can be used to speed the design… more
Abstract:Robust and high-temperature-capable fiber optic temperature sensors are needed to improve the efficiency and reduce the emission of greenhouse gases in power generation using fossil fuels. While these devices are commercially available, their costs are too high. A novel design for the thermal probe… more
Abstract:The basic need in a crisis situation, whether it is a natural or unnatural disaster, political or social unrest, or some combination, is relevant, timely and accurate information, filtered to present the most pertinent data to the decision makers. Commanders have unique information requirements due… more
Abstract:The focus of our Intelligence and Intuition for Enhanced Decision Making (I2EDM) Phase 1 research is to provide efficient and timely automated production and dissemination of information products in support of doctrinal Decision Points for the Company and below in austere environments. Operating in… more
Abstract:Modus Operandi proposes to continue the development of Inception, a collaborative intelligent service for searching, gathering, interpreting, validating, capturing, and documenting the characterization of stakeholder needs for Modeling and Simulation (M & S) systems. The first phase or the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Global Positioning System (GPS) is used by the DoD to provide the position for accessing location and movement of ground, air and sea assets and threats and for precise navigation. For increased accuracy and anti-spoofing, the encrypted Precise Positioning Service (PPS) is utilized… more

The TM system does not interfere with the aircraft Environment Control System (ECS) nor the aircraft Power and Thermal… more
Abstract:The rapid ascent and adoption of social media as the dominant form of communication has led to significant analysis challenges. In particular, there is a gap in theoretically informed methods to analyze data mined and collected from social media. One primary cause of this gap is the lack of fusing… 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.
