BENEFIT: Beyond the study of changes in… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The proposed research effort is focused on developing a super hydrophobic ice-phobic coating technology that will minimize ice formation on aluminum heat exchangers/condensers. In Phase I, Oceanit will focus on developing the proposed materials, demonstrate ice repellent properties, and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Oceanit will create a disruptive, fundamentally-new military navigation architecture to provide game-changing advantages for U.S. forces. BENEFIT: A navigation system that that has the flexibility to incorporate military GPS information (PRS, M Code), but should not rely on them, and be… more
Abstract:Oceanit will develop and demonstrate the feasibility of a system that will allow Marines to dry boots (and potentially other clothing items) overnight without the need for a power supply. Oceanit will demonstrate a prototype system design; manufacture and test the drying system in a combat type… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Oceanit proposes to develop multiphase composite materials using shockwave consolidation approach. New materials will have exceptionally high mechanical strength, thermal and electrical conductivity as compare to current state-of-art technology. Oceanit"s prior experience in… more
Abstract:Phase II.5 proposal, extension of Phase II contract N00014-10-C-0255. Data collection and management of operational aircraft data is a critical enabler of effective condition based maintenance (CBM+). However, the large volumes of data collected create accessibility problems that limit the… more
Abstract:An innovative energy monitoring system and process are needed to provide real time energy usages for our Fleet. This information process needs to consolidate and get that data to every ship so they have the capability to monitor and track their energy usages and adjust consumption to meet Navy goals… more
Abstract:USDA-ARS Montana has developed a production process for moist, fibrous extruded diets that could resolve this impediment in marine fish, by allowing compound diets to be delivered in a stable, non-friable, large pellet - the "Formulated Sardine". This SBIR research project will test the… more
Abstract:The broader impact/commercial potential of this project: If successful, this research will have immediate social, economic, and scientific impact. This project will expand the field of prosthetics and create new research direction in prosthetics. It will result in a better understanding of… more
Abstract:The broader impact/commercial potential of this project will extend to a number of interdisciplinary areas in science and engineering. In particular the areas of wireless sensors, wireless smart sensor network, transducer technology, and signal processing will be the primary beneficiaries. The… more
Abstract:We propose to develop a prototype wearable sensor network comprising small form factor tags attached to the soldier"s limbs and weapon, and a receiver array worn on the soldier"s chest that provides accurate position, velocity and acceleration information that the soldier is being… more
Abstract:Tissue Genesis (TGI) is proposing to develop a highly portable, easy to use, low-cost, point-of-care, adipose-derived stem cell (ASC) isolation device that fully integrates the process from fat extraction to cell product. This next generation system addresses current technology limitations… more
Abstract:Pongee Channa sp. are an esteemed freshwater food fish in Asia, Hawaii, and domestic Asian seafood markets. Traditional customer preference is for a live product. However, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service banned the import and interstate transport of live Channidae in 2002. Therefore, the only… more
Abstract:Low dissolved oxygen levels are the most frequent cause of catastrophic fish mortalities in aquaculture farming, resulting in substantial dollar losses of valuable aquaculture crops annually. To address this problem, the U.S. aquaculture industry most often uses floating paddlewheels and/or… 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.
