Abstract:Grease lubricated bearings are widely used in aircraft for driveshaft support, fans, and accessories. These components are a maintenance intensive item requiring regular replenishment or replacement. In addition, occasional failures occur and have resulted in loss of aircraft. Sentient Corporation,… more
Abstract:Current animal telemetry devices are large and heavy due to their reliance on batteris to power the electronics and radios. Because of this, many species can't be effectively studied since they can not support the device weight. The smaller size will allow animal telemetry devices to be developed… more

Abstract:Environmental Abrasives, LLC (EA) proposes to improve the environment by recycling ceramic industrial waste and using the resulting product to reduce the impact of corroded and worn-out parts, equipment, pipelines, and structures. EA will develop, characterize, and test an innovative comminuted… more
Abstract:Human activities have allowed uncharacteristically dense forests of small diameter trees to develop. Fires, which are now suppressed, historically thinned these forests, reducing stand densities by removing weak and suppressed trees. Also, because the species harvested (ponderosa pine western larch,… more
Abstract:Diseased potato tubers in storage produce volatile organic chemicals that can be used as an indicator of the type and quantity of disease in the storage facility. By measuring the concentration of such volatile molecules, disease formation can be detected at an early stage, thereby providing an… more
Abstract:Development of an Optimal Bioaerosol Sampler with enhanced optical triggering capability is proposed, following a highly successful Phase I effort that clearly demonstrated feasibility. The threat of a bioaerosol attack can be partially mitigated by deployment of a cost-effective sensor network.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Custom biocatalyst design for use in synthetic chemistry is a very hotly pursued area of biotechnological research. Not only are enzymes attractive because they achieve remarkable rate enhancements with little or no requirement for energy input, but they also… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Gutless (helper-dependent) adenovirus vectors constitute a promising tool for gene transfer, with potentially a wide variety of applications in research and medicine. Although high-titer gutless adenovirus preparations have recently been obtained, the generation… more
Abstract:Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is used as an analysis tool to help the designer gain greater understanding of the fluid flow phenomena involved in the components being designed. The next step in the design process is to modify the design to improve the componentys performance, typically… more
Abstract:We propose to develop a secure runtime environment for fuselet-based missile targeting and threat analysis built on a foundation of aspect-oriented secure web services. Aspect-oriented techniques enable the modularization of crosscutting concerns such as remote access, security, transactions, and… more
Abstract:The ability to detect cracks within Taper-Lok fastener holes associated with thick, multi-layer wing structures without removing the fastener presents significant challenges to existing nondestructive inspection technologies. Critical fastener hole inspections for sections of the B-1B wing… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a field use, nondestructive measurement capability for hydrogen embrittlement (HE) damage in high-strength alloys based on induced positron annihilation. The primary objective of this project will be to demonstrate this… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II research project will develop a prototype Induced Positron Manufacturing Damage System (IPMDS) to be used to assess initial component quality, and manufacturing damage effects for Ti-6Al-4V and IN738 components. The IPMDS is based on the… more
Abstract:Military and commercial aircraft operators are moving toward predictive maintenance to minimize costs while maximizing asset availability and safety. Key technological prerequisites for this new approach are the ability to monitor the condition of critical components, and the ability to accurately… more
Abstract:Lubrication problems in rolling element bearings are the leading cause of failure in spacecraft momentum/reaction wheels, control moment gyros, gimbals, and similar applications. Condition monitoring technologies developed for terrestrial or aircraft applications are not adequate due to unique… more
Abstract:Emerging prognostics and health management (PHM) technologies will reduce maintenance costs for military aircraft while improving safety and availability. On the Joint Strike Fighter, software modules supplied by multiple vendors will be assembled into PHM area reasoners. System integrators will… more
Abstract:This TenXsys NASA SBIR project focuses on an innovative software solution that allows complex real-time data streams to be viewed as information on devices. The TenXsys solution allows access to data anywhere, anytime using wireless transmission to a web enabled handheld device such as a personal… more
Abstract:Current animal studies are limited by the requirement for batteries in animal telemetry devices. Problems include limited operational life and duty cycle of the devices, as well as limiting the species studied due to battery weight. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the feasibility of… more
Abstract:Commercialization potential for unit-dose vials with shaft applicator and applicator tip is extremely promising. There is emerging market demand for this product, but no such products are presently available. The project investigates the optimum configuration(s), material(s) and attachment method(s)… more
Abstract:Application of chemicals with irrigation water is a widely adopted practice with center pivot irrigation systems, however, the standard practice of chemical injection at a constant rate results in systematic chemical application errors ranging from 7 to 22% for center pivots equipped with a corner… more
Abstract:NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Economic impacts due to coldwater disease (CWD) have dramatically increased in recent years at public and private aquaculture facilities and CWD is the number one disese problem in the commercial rainbow trout industry in Idaho. In the United States, antibiotics available for… 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.
