Abstract:Multispectral zinc sulfide (ZnS) has been identified as a candidate seeker window material for defensive interceptor applications. Zinc sulfide is currently being tested for thermophysical and optical properties to confirm its performance and validate analytical predictions. The ZnS currently being… more
Abstract:Apple sales (due to competition with Chinese imports) have dropped considerably causing many farms to close. A value added apple product has been invented, yet is inconsitant in its process. The purpose of this research is to find a method of creating and replicating Cider Syrup as a method to… more
Abstract:A key system in the development of effective KEI vehicles is the divert and attitude control system (DACS). The DACS are responsible for maneuvering the interceptor vehicle to its target. A vital component to the DACS is the thruster, which provides effective control of vehicle divert. Solid… more
Abstract:The proposed project addresses the Navy's need to reduce shipbuilding costs and improve delivery schedules by developing equipment and methods to dramatically improve the welding of plate panel butt joints. Comprising the outer hull, decks, and bulkheads of ships, these panels remain one of the… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project will develop a Dynamic Torsional Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis (DTKAFO) for the treatment of Metatarsus Adductus/Varus (MTA), Internal Tibial Torsion (ITT) and Talipes Equinovarus (TEV). The DTKAFO offers an easy-to-use brace that… more
Abstract:The EPA has imposed a maximum contaminant level for arsenic at 10 ppb, which poses a tough standard for a significant number of the nation's community drinking water systems. One major issue relates to how the utility knows when the filtration media has saturated with the removed arsenic and needs… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant):
Research in healthy aging has determined that interpersonal connectedness and sense of meaning and life purpose are important predictors of well-being in the elderly. This Phase I SBIR application is to test the feasibility of a novel approach to strengthening… more
Abstract:Fiber Materials, Inc. (FMI), in partnership with Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company (LMSSC), proposes to develop innovative, reduced weight and cost, thermal protection systems for the THAAD mid-body and booster based on the placed fiber fabrication process. Placed fiber is a manufacturing… more
Abstract:The behavior of flaw growth in hetrogeneous materials such as reinforced ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) is not well understood. The use of CMC materials for thin wall components such as interceptor directional control thrusters offer significant advantages in cost and weight reduction over… more
Abstract:The primary goal of the proposed Phase II effort will be to demonstrate materials and processes necessary to reliably produce a viable high temperature DACS thruster via the enhancement of the baseline C/SiC composite with hafnium diboride matrix doping. The viability of the resulting prototype CMC… more
Abstract:Fiber Materials Inc. teamed with Boeing Corporation propose to design and manufacture representative Common Aero-Vehicle (CAV) acreage TPS sections that will satisfactorily fulfill the currently planned trajectory for the global reach vehicle. The TPS sections will include the aero-shell surface… more
Abstract:Fiber Materials, Inc. (FMI), teamed with Aerojet, proposes to demonstrate a low cost material concept applicable to the SM-3 ACS. The material, a 4-dimensionally reinforced carbon-carbon containing silicon carbide to eliminate oxidation and erosion, will offer significant benefits in comparison to… more
Abstract:Fiber Materials, Inc., teamed with Aerojet and Plasma Processes, Inc., will complete the design and development leading to fabrication and demonstration of a ceramic matrix composite thrust chamber and requisite joining technologies for an advanced liquid/gel divert and attitude control (LDACS)… more
Abstract:Battlefield vehicles such as the Interim Armored Vehicle (IAV) and Future Combat Systems (FCS) carry high energy, large caliber munitions into combat. The munitions are stowed in a rack within the vehicle and are susceptible to burning, detonation, and explosion when impacted by spall fragments… more
Abstract:Electromagnetic rail launchers are being designed for future long range naval surface fire support. These projectile launchers operate due to the interaction between the magnetic field and current flow between parallel conductive rails. An electric current accelerates a projectile down the barrel at… more
Abstract:Mussel consumption in the U.S. has been limited by the sales of live mussels in wet packages with reduced shelf life. The FDA is reluctant to approve modified atmosphere packs for live mussels due to the risk of contamination by Clostridium botulinum in spoiled packages. This project tests the… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop and test the spatial models, algorithms, and software. They are needed to computationally match the real-time measurements of location and orientation with the best candidate object in a geospatial dataset. Integrating… 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.
