Abstract:Traditional Extravehicular Activity (EVA) spacesuits incorporate either hard or soft upper torso subassemblies as part of their architecture. In either case, these components are of a specific, fixed size and lack provisions to make sizing adjustments across the overall envelope of the torso. This… more
Abstract:Lean-burn engines have the potential to provide more efficient and cleaner operation. However, extremely lean mixtures are more difficult to ignite than the near-stoichiometric mixtures used in todays combustion engines. Reliably igniting extremely lean fuel-air mixtures requires more energy be… more
Abstract:DTI proposes to investigate several potential approaches to dynamic tuning to down-select to an optimal solution, based on cost, technical robustness, and serviceability, from which to build and test a dynamic tuning system for use at one or more U.S. Navy VLF station(s). DTI will explore each of… more

Abstract:In Phase I of this SBIR, Diversified Technologies, Inc. (DTI) developed a design for a compact, rugged, capacitor-charging converter for the Navy Electromagnetic Railgun (EMRG) program. Evaluation and testing of critical design elements were completed, and prototype subassemblies are planned under… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will address the market-driven need for environmentally compatible marine antifouling coating technologies that outperform the state-of-the-art. Increasing environmental regulations have led to the banning of the most effective marine… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR/STTR) project targets the development of a novel ultra-high capacity sorbents and technology for CO2 capture and separation from combustion-derived flue gas. In the US, coal-fired power plants represent about 42% of the electricity generated but… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: A major challenge and expense of developing electromagnetic sensors is the custom hardware required to generate and receive electromagnetic waves. Radar sensors generate and receive electromagnetic waveforms through custom signal processing hardware called a Receiver / Exciter (REX). The… more
Abstract:The project team is developing a prototype of WebFluidMath, a software programto support students who are learning basic algebra principles. To use the Web FluidMath program, students will write math expressions and make drawings on the screen of apen-enabled tablet computer (e.g., iPad, Android,… more
Abstract:Chemical warfare agents, such as nerve and mustard agents, pose serious threats to our soldiers and civilians. An efficient barrier coating which can sequester and deactivate chemical agents is urgently needed. We propose a broad spectrum responsive nanocomposite gel coating that can irreversibly… more
Abstract:A major inhibitor in the adaptation of polymer electrolyte membranes (PEMs) has been the high levels of precious metal catalysts needed for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) in state-of-the-art acid-based PEMs. Alkaline PEMs have long held the promise of lowering the need for precious metal… 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.
