The solution to multiple vehicle control by a single operator, provisions for services over new Service… more
Abstract:The Army has invested millions of dollars in large computer generated forces (CGF) applications, supporting constructive and virtual use cases. These applications have embedded algorithms and concepts intended to help simulated entities make automated decisions. These algorithms could directly… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Air Force has established a target of making space photovoltaic (PV) systems, lighter, less complex but also more efficient, robust and lower cost than present generation space cells. With multi-junction cells being the candidate of choice, Eclipse proposes to optimize and… more
Abstract:The Eclipse Gigapixel Camera system is a low cost ultra high resolution camera system combining modern high resolution CMOS image sensors with commercial packaging techniques and innovative optics. This camera is orders of magnitude lower in cost than previous ultra resolution systems while still… more
Abstract:An innovative solution for improvement in power density, efficiency, and reliability of the electric starter generator (ES/ G) is proposed using induction technology. Single set stator-rotor assembly per power section and lack of rotating windings and rectifiers will substantially improve power… more
Abstract:Helicopters are equipped with brush type 30 V dc generators. With increasing ac 400 Hz. power requirement, some of the dc power is converted to ac power using solid state inverters. This approach involves increased cost, weight and reduced efficiency of the electrical power system. This proposal… more
Abstract:Combat environments can subject personnel to extreme conditions, testing the limits of both their physical and cognitive abilities. Tactile displays offer a relatively untapped channel for dismounted warfighter navigation, and can be an effective communication modality even under situations where… more
Abstract:Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when physical trauma causes temporary or permanent neurological damage. In some cases, symptoms can continue and contribute to disability. Dizziness and vertigo are associated with nearly all reported studies of mTBI and are a significant and functionally limiting… more
Abstract:An immediate and definite need exists for a portable diagnostic device for the assessment of cortical function, and diagnosis of mTBI. This proposal has as its aim the development of a portable device and testing protocol for the objective and quantitative diagnosis of acute mTBI suspects. mTBI is… more
Abstract:Thermal batteries power a vast array of tactical and strategic defense systems. Future performance requirements are demanding higher power levels over longer operating times for: (1) multi-functional seeker and sensor packages, (2) active data links supporting net-centric operation and (3) increased… more
Abstract:Because of chemical behaviors of real DNA molecules, the nanotechnology envisioned by the Defense Department in this Solicitation will be possible only if design automation software creates nanostructures that exploit artificially expanded genetic information systems (AEGIS). AEGIS DNA molecules… more
Abstract:FTT proposes development of a magnetically actuated dynamic seal. Dynamic seals are used throughout the turbopump in high-performance, pump-fed, liquid rocket engines for a variety of purposes. The most common applications are in the lift-off seal (LOS), inter-propellant seal (IPS), and balance… more
Abstract:In order to achieve a high payoff turbopump with a low investment, the modern turbopump in today's space propulsion program is required to have greater life, with lower maintenance costs. In order to achieve lower maintenance costs, the turnaround time between mission cycles must be kept to a… more
Abstract:FTT is proposing the development of a sensor to detect the presence of hydrocarbons in turbopump Inter-Propellant Seals (IPS). The purpose of the IPS is to prevent the fuel (RP-2) and oxidizer (LOX) from mixing by using an inert purge gas; however, a major risk of the IPS is RP-2 wicking into the… more
Abstract:The proposed research is aimed at the development of an automated on-wing method for failure prevention in gas turbine engines. Maintenance is presently the largest controllable cost in the gas turbine industry. However, failure-prevention action is the most common corrective response, even though… 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.
