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
Abstract:The proposed program will develop a breathable ablator concept for application to Navy extended flight or maneuverable reentry vehicles. The breathable ablator concept will consist of a high-density, carbon-carbon outer shell over a charring ablator. This material configuration provides a greater… more
Abstract:Infectious salmon anemia (ISA) virus is an emerging pathogen of farmed Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar). The virus is among the fish pathogens listed in the Aquatic Animal Health Code of the Office International des Epizooties (OIE). As such, ISA is a notifiable disease and compulsory eradication… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of developing a novel acoustic wave sensor for use as an oil quality monitor for motor vehicles and industrial machinery. Normally oil quality is not monitored in situ. The most common method of ensuring oil… more
Abstract:Chronic wasting disease (CWD) in elk and deer, and scrapie in sheep are a family of degenerative, central nervous system diseases known as transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) or prion diseases. They are often called spongiform because of the post mortem appearance of hole-like… more
Abstract:Purpose for proposal: To develop and field test Phonics Essentials for Teachers (PET): an Interactive Professional Development Package. This CD-based program for teachers will provide essential knowledge and pedagogy for teaching phonological awareness and phonics skills, including decoding… more
Abstract:The purpose of the proposed Phase II research is to develop a prototype of the TFLAMES core software model. This model and attendant sub-routines will make it possible to calculate the stress and life of each individual engine component using actual flight data in near-real time, replacing the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant):
Our objective is to develop a new biomaterial, a salmon fibrin gel, that will bridge injured CNS tissue, support and promote axonal sprouting and growth, and deliver neurotrophic factors and cells. Aim #1 is to determine the factors, biochemical and mechanical… 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.
