Abstract:Diesel compression ratios are normally set high (16:1 to 23:1) for cold starting, yet data show optimum fuel efficiency and emissions occur at compression ratios below 14:1. The industry trend has been to steadily reduce compression ratio. Literature findings indicate that reducing Diesel… more
Abstract:Diesel engine manufacturers need a way to improve fuel economy as well as limit NOx and particulate emissions to meet upcoming federal, state, and global regulations. A large percentage of emissions and fuel consumption occurs during cold start and light to medium load operation. EMA proposes to… more
Abstract:A significant challenge in scaling micro-propulsion devices up to 100s of Watts as well as scaling macro devices down to sub-kiloWatt level is the lack of a compatible neutralizer technology in the meso scale. Sub-kiloWatt EP systems require cathode technology that can produce sufficient current… more
Abstract:Vesitech, Inc. has developed a totally new class of water treatment technology utilizing novel carbon based electrodes that have been shown to electrochemically produce advanced oxidation (AO) species in-situ in contaminated water. Depending upon the electrode formulation and configuration, the… more
Abstract:The Mackinac Technology Company is proposing to develop a novel antireflection film that will virtually eliminate the reflection of interior lighting on transit bus windshields and significantly improve driver visibility and passenger/pedestrian safety. Additives are incorporated into windshield… more
Abstract:Aerospace structures are often subjected to a broad spectrum of mechanical and/or aerodynamic excitations and, therefore, there is a real need for the development of a modeling technique which can be used for the vibroacoustic analysis, with high fidelity and adequate spatial and spectral… more
Abstract:Surface temperatures in atmospheric reentry simulations range from 1500-2300 K, while stagnation temperature on the leading edge of a Mach 6 flight vehicle at 25 km altitude is 1817 K. Sensors that can operate at temperatures well above 1273 K are needed to provide reliable validation data for TPS… more
Abstract:The presence of energetic ions, that appear under high cathode current operation, stand as a showstopper to the realization of high power electric propulsion. Physical barriers such as the use of carbon electrodes (e.g. NEXT) are no longer sufficient as ion energies measured greatly exceed the… more
Abstract:The objective of this SBIR project is to develop a man-portable S- and C-band communication antenna that can simultaneously track and communicate with multiple nanosatellites in several planes. We propose a low-cost phased array antenna design whose particular architecture could be adapted to a… more
Abstract:The Navy in support of the sailor has identified the need for an advanced ballistic shield for Crew Served Weapons Stations that will allow for a required level of ballistic protection without interfering with other shipboard duties that need to be performed. This proposed system will protect the… more
Abstract:Future military vehicle systems require 600VDC power buses to improve mobility and save fuel through hybrid power system configurations. This is a compelling proposition at a time when the military needs to find ways to address decreasing budgets, while increasing capability. High voltage systems… more
Abstract:Abstract - The goal of this work is to enhance the productivity and comfort of computer access for people whose impairments affect their ability to use the computer keyboard and mouse. In Phase I, we will develop and evaluate a software tool for the automatic configuration of computer keyboards. The… more
Abstract:Due to the complex wave propagation and vibration involved in dynamic loading, commonly used sensors, such as electrical resistance strain gauge and accelerometer, cannot adequately measure the true loading history without a specially designed mechanism. In the Phase I study, an innovative mechanism… more
Abstract:Michigan Aerospace Corporation proposes to develop an integrated LIDAR instrument capable of identifying icing conditions while also providing air data sensing capabilities. The resulting Raman Icing Detection System (RIDES) will be an integrated air data sensing and icing condition detection… more
Abstract:Volcanic ash is a significant hazard to aircraft engine and electronics and has caused damage to unwary aircraft and disrupted air travel for thousands of travelers, costing millions of dollars. Michigan Aerospace Corporation (MAC) proposes to demonstrate the concept feasibility of a Raman Light… more
Abstract:The successful landing of the large Mars rover Curiosity on August 5, 2012 outlined the increasing complexity of safely landing large rovers on the planet. A precise knowledge of the spacecraft speed is required in order to initiate the landing sequence near 900 mph; the present method uses IMUs to… more
Abstract:The Phase I verified ADS-B-ER feasibility-based on compatibility with the ADS-B operational standards and design specs, bandwidth and the iPAD EFB capability for performing the trajectory computations for avoiding hazardous weather, terrain, traffic and restricted airspace.

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.
