Abstract:Icing is one of the most significant hazards to aircraft. There is still much research to be completed with regard to developing remote-sensing technologies for accurately identifying where icing conditions exist in clouds. There is a need to provide in-situ measurements of cloud liquid water… more
Abstract:Flux measurements of trace gases and other quantities, such as latent heat, are of great importance in scientific field research. One typical flux measurement setup involves placing measurement equipment (sonic anemometers and associated sensors or samplers) on rigid towers (rigidity being required… more
Abstract:Dropsondes are one of the primary in-situ measurement tools available to research aircraft and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Unlike sensors mounted on aircraft, dropsondes allow a vertical profile of the atmosphere to be taken below the aircraft. A guided dropsonde which could glide away from… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will enhance and optimize the Precision Distance Measurement system developed during the Phase I effort. The technology is based on innovative ultra-precise control of frequency-swept lasers to determine absolute object distances and… more
Abstract:For NASA missions requiring active control of segmented mirrors, optical trusses and booms, coherent, laser-based approaches such as CW laser interferometers have been preferred because they can provide very high resolution relative position measurements. Other approaches, such as multi-color… more
Abstract:Bridger Photonics and the University of Arizona will develop a passive multi-band compressive sensor for imaging and object recognition applications.

Live cell assays provide a rich environment for measuring biological activity. Coupled with genetically encodedfluorescent biosensors, live cell assays… more
Abstract:The most significant hardware costs on a missile interceptor propulsion system are associated with the thrusters, for which there are typically four divert thrusters and four, six, or eight attitude control thrusters per interceptor. The largest contributor to the thruster cost is the integrated… more
Abstract:The accelerating prevalence of antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains is an increasing public health problem. While the emergence of resistant strains is unavoidable, it is exacerbated by the widespread use, inappropriate prescription and misuse of antibiotics. Development of new antibiotics is slow… more
Abstract:The Navy seeks an in-situ powder coating material and application method for spot repair. Resodyn Corporation proposes a unique restoration and repair polymer thermal spray coating (R & RPTS) system that provides the ease of repair, safety in handling, and effective coating protection to fulfill… more
Abstract:Electromagnetic structures buried in optical ceramic domes may be accurately located using an electromagnetic sensor and detection technology. A preliminary experiment demonstrated this claim but an investigation into electromagnetic properties that can vary as a result of manufacturing tolerance is… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Current mixing and casting procedures result in unwanted gradients in solid rocket motor (SRM) material properties with subsequent ballistic property variations. Resodyn Corporations ResonantAcoustic mixing (RAM) technology is poised to revolutionize the design, development and… more

Abstract:Situational Awareness is the key element of performing safe and effective operations, and the space vehicle operations carried out by NASA is by no means an exception to the rule. Astronauts and flight controllers need to maintain awareness of the situation in the space vehicles, robots, habitats,… more
Abstract:Pine Ridge Products LLC will introduce a tactical micro wind turbine that is highly efficient, robust, easy to use, maintain and transport. The Army is requesting a renewable energy system to reduce the amount of fuel used for small power loads. A vehicle mounted, efficient wind turbine system would… more
Abstract:The objective of this project is to develop CO2 absorption columns with rates of production that will enable CO2 capture for less than $20 per ton of CO2. The research will make use of a nano-composite sorbent material called interstitial “Spiderwebs”TM. The Spiderweb material was… more

Abstract:Studies have shown that up to 70 percent of conventionally applied fertilizer goes unutilized by plants and becomes a contaminant of surface and ground (drinking) water. Fertilizer run-off in surface water leads to oxygen depletion of streams, lakes, and other bodies of water. Without oxygen, the… 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.
