Abstract:Gear tooth surface fatigue (pitting) is common precursor failure mode that leads to excessive gear vibration, liberation of debris particles that damage ancillary components (e.g. bearings), and serves as crack initiation sites that lead to eventual catastrophic tooth failure. Current gearbox life… more
Abstract:Solar Roadways Incorporated envisions replacing current asphalt surfaces with modular Solar Road Panels: structurally-engineered solar panels that can be driven upon. The roadway will generate electricity, become our nation's power grid, make all-electric vehicles practical, and… more
Abstract:During the past century, physicists have explored subatomic particles in an attempt to understand the fundamental components of the universe, explain the origin of mass, and probe the possibility of an extra-dimensional universe. To advance these explorations, scientists from around the world are… more
Abstract:In an information warfare scenario, the enemy will deploy an attack that has never been seen before. This attack will completely debilitate both defensive and offensive software capabilities. We have designed and developed a system that will defend against such attacks. The project's major… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project will develop a process for spraying site sourced biological soil crusts (BSC) inoculants onto degraded arid lands in order to facilitate more efficient restoration. Environmental degradation due to energy exploration,… more
Abstract:The proposed work will advance methylation diagnosis through the creation of a nano electronic methylation detection system. Most methods currently used in the detection of CpG methylation at specific sites require a bisulfate treatment, PCR amplification
and other conventional bio-molecular assays… more
Abstract:We propose to develop Open Service Gateway Initiative (OSGi) enhancements for configuration management and validation to enable assured switching between operational and test modes. We will design a moded configuration management and validation suite that extends public-domain OSGi implementations… more
Abstract:We propose to develop an intelligent assistant that enables the rapid creation and use of web services for the warfighter. We will design a web services toolbox, and a web-based assistant built on it, that extends public-domain interoperability technologies with capabilities for dynamic web service… more
Abstract:The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes energy efficient microwave-process for the conversion of chloroaromatics to fluoroaromatics by halogen exchange. Currently, fluoroaromatics are produced by conventional heating of appropriate reagents; and potassium fluoride, the… more
Abstract:Health monitoring and management of critical machinery is becoming state-of-the-art for military aircraft. Application of advanced health monitoring technology to ground-based plant equipment is an obvious, needed extension. Advanced signal processing algorithms that can analyze vibration signals… more
Abstract:Topic Synopsis: Current aircraft disposition tools are not designed to take advantage of predictive prognostic information that will be available on new systems such as the F-35 PHM system or the proposed Maintenance and Monitoring system for the E-2D Hawkeye. The central challenges in this topic… more
Abstract:Wind energy has numerous benefits as a power source, including price stability, lack of greenhouse gas emissions, and lack of dependence on imported fuels. As wind increases its penetration into the U.S. power market, it is imperative to minimize costs and maximize reliability, so that it can fully… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology TransferResearch (STTR) Program project aims to resolve if LEDs can provide properly formed light spectra and identify the appropriate LED control needed to resolve if COTS photodetectors can detect the full spectral character of analytes in-situ and identify the… more
Abstract:The activity of an OS kernel may be monitored dynamically in real time. As the kernel executes, the transition among the constituent components of the kernel will follow a predictable pattern representing the normal operation of the kernel. An attack on the operating system will induce a… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We will develop and evaluate a tool designed to support the collection of rich data for performing a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) in schools focusing specifically on children with autism. The proposed archiving
system will permit educators to record only… more
Abstract:The proposers will develop a computer language compiler to enable inexpensive, low-power, integer-only processors to carry our mathematically-intensive comptutations at high speed, with excellent computational accuracy. This will enable space systems designers to select from a wide range of… more
Abstract:The proposed work seeks to drastically increase the capability of the lossless data compression technology embedded in the currently used flight part known as USES (Universal Source Encoder for Space). USES met the CCSDS 121-0-B 1 recommendation. New advances to the lossless data compression… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project shall investigate the use of germanium tetrafluoride (GeF4), and antimony Sb(V) as a catalyst for GeF4 fluorination to develop a new and more efficient process for the production of hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants. There have been… more

pedance measuring system. The prototype… more
Abstract:Research into voice transformation has been ongoing for over twenty years. In addition, there are many commercial products available. There has been very little research, however, into techniques for detection of voice transformation. Furthermore, objective metrics for the quality of transformed… more
Abstract:Wind energy has numerous benefits as a power source, including price stability, lack of greenhouse gas emissions, revitalization of rural areas, and lack of dependence on imported fuels. As wind increases its penetration into the US power market, it is imperative to minimize costs and maximize… 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.
