Abstract:Secure data storage in tactical wireless mesh networks is mainly addressed by encryption of sensitive data using shared key concepts combined with encrypted wireless links. The nature of the applications (e.g. a situational awareness application among 10-100 nodes) leads to each mesh node sharing… more
Abstract:For many years, electrically driven heat pumps have proven to be an effective method of extracting heat from ambient air. As air temperature falls, however, heat pump performance falls off, essentially limiting their year round usefulness to warmer climates. In colder climates heat pump-equipped… more
Abstract:Mechanical Solutions, Inc. (MSI) is proposing to modify its existing extended range 40mm non-lethal munition to carry a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) payload to detect and confirm explosives at a stand-off distance of 100 meters. The MIP is accurately delivered and distributed with very low… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The overall goal for this project is to develop and validate a robust online blade vibration and tip clearance measurement system for compressor and turbine blades, and to transition that technology to engine control system manufacturers, thereby improving engine performance, cost, and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The goal of the Phase II SBIR project is to develop a practical valve health monitoring system for control valves that are utilized at AEDC facilities. The technical problem addressed is the impact of unplanned valve maintenance or valve failure on wind tunnel operations at AEDC. Valve… more
Abstract:The project goal is to enable the electrical outputs of multiple, very compact turbogenerators in the 10-50 kW range to be combined ("mechanically paralleled") in order to create a compact, stable, reliable, and efficient microgrid capable of providing up to 500 kW… more
Abstract:A particular need exists for systems to accurately orient mortar gun tubes in the field. Specifically, a system is sought that is compact enough to be man portable and fit on a 60 or 81 mm mortar barrel, capable of withstanding lateral shock up of 3 -15,000G, be able to resolve azimuth and elevation… more
Abstract:As part of the spacesuit pressure garment, the EVA glove incorporates a silicone pad on the palm for protection of the bladder from cuts and punctures. Repeated gripping and rotational motion cause delamination of the silicone pad from the underlying Vectran® fabric. In addition, frequent scuffing… more
Abstract:Composite cryotanks, or Composite Overwrapped Pressure Vessels (COPVs), offer advantages over currently used aluminum-lithium cryotanks, particularly with respect to weight savings. Future NASA missions are expected to use COPVs in spaceflight propellant tanks to store fuels, oxidizers, and other… more
Abstract:Carbon Polymer Matrix Composites (PMCs) are attractive structural materials for NASA applications due to their high strength to weight ratio, mechanical properties that can be tailored to specific applications, and fatigue resistance. Reinforcing specific critical areas in PMCs is most advantageous… more
Abstract:Problem Statement: In order to obtain energy independence from conventional sources, there is a significant interest in the production of biogas and “green energy” during wastewater treatment. Due to increased emphasis on sustainability and potential for additional revenue streams, utilities… more

Abstract:Currently used air filters in DOD infrastructures are limited in their ability to adsorb Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Further, these filters are designed for single use, and need to be replaced frequently, hence increasing the maintenance cost. 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.
