Abstract:The objective of this proposal is to develop a physics based model for determining the center of gravity of both fixed and rotary wing aircraft. The location of the center of gravity is critical for the ability of an aircraft to take off and sustain flight. When an aircraft is loaded improperly, its… more
Abstract:Although the performance of naval systems for Anti-Submarine Warfare and Counter-Torpedo Detection, Classification, and Localization systems are presently adequate for current missions they are limited by the size, power and detection range of the associated sonar transducer arrays. What is required… more
Abstract:The proposed research will explore innovative flight control methodologies combining recent advances in system identification, novel flight sensors, and neural network based adaptive flight control design to develop a new, high bandwidth flight controller architecture capable of rejecting the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Protein kinases are essential enzymes that function primarily as components of signaling pathways, regulating cellular responses such as division, growth, differentiation, and death. Abnormalities in these signaling pathways can lead to wide- ranging and… more
Abstract:The continued frequency spectrum expansion of software defined radio (SDR) applications combined with the need to simultaneously transmit and receive through a common antenna in smaller form-factors, requires the development of dramatically improved tunable band-pass filter technology. These filters… more
Abstract:The development of Wide Bandgap Semiconductors such as GaN has enabled tremendous improvements in power amplifier performance such as operational frequency and output power. These device improvements have in turn enabled performance and capability improvements in the end applications such as EW… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): PharmacoPhotonics (DBA FAST, Inc.) proposes Fast-Track research to determine GFR in its first human Pilot study. The long-term goal of this SBIR project is to test FAST's minimally invasive catheter based fluorescent device in humans and commercialize this… more
Abstract:"The ability to determine air pollutant emission quantity and emission rate are extremely important for environmental protection, policy making, and law enforcement. A pollutant emission rate can be determined by calculating the product of the airflow rate from an exhaust fan and the composition of… more
Abstract:Due to the possible transmission of blood-borne diseases, biting insects, mosquitoes, midges, and sand flies pose increasing danger to deployed military personnel and humans in locations around the globe. The SkySight Technologies approach to creating and demonstrating a tent trap to capture biting… more
Abstract:The ocean bottom is a protective location for sensors, unless a trawl fishing rig drags over the sensor. Because a trawl fishing rig scrapes the ocean floor and scoops fish into a net, it can be devastating to bottom mounted sensors, especially when sensors are vertically tethered in the water… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The broad, long-term objective of the proposed project Electrical System for Rapid Bacterial Cultures is to develop an automated electrical impedance analyzer for measuring bacterial growth in contaminated blood. Thepurpose of the System is to hasten the time… more
Abstract:The objective of the research is the completion of an observation platform for the ISS Light Microscopy Module (LMM) as it currently resides on the U.S. Fluids Integration Rack (FIR). In its current configuration the LMM accommodates a Contained Bubble Experiment, and it has no substage illuminator… more
Abstract:Traditionally spaceflight life science experiments require the return of samples to earth for analysis, which is frequently a challenge to the success of investigations. Even with more analytical instruments on ISS, conditions do not facilitate the transfer of liquid samples from experimental… more
Abstract:Techshot, Inc. proposes to develop a Multi-specimen Variable-G Facility (MVF) for life and microgravity sciences research. The MVF incorporates a generic multi-specimen sample holder which can be accessed on-orbit, allowing data to be obtained in real-time. Candidate specimens accommodated by the… more
Abstract:The Techshot Autonomous Battery Management System (ABMS) is the ideal solution to the stored battery problems experienced today. The Techshot ABMS reduces operating costs via an automated battery management system. The ABMS is suitable for both smart and dumb rechargeable batteries, as well as a… 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.
