Abstract:Metal casting is an important manufacturing process and most castings are made by small to mid-sized foundries. Sand molded castings account for 85% of all iron and steel castings produced and approximately 5 out of 30 major casting defects including gas blows and sand burn-on are related to poor… more
Abstract:Advanced infrared imaging (night vision) equipment is a critical component of the US military's tactical capability. The development of third-generation, multi-wavelength infrared focal-plane arrays (FPAs) promises to enhance the superiority of the US mil
Abstract:Innovative, fast, ultraprecise and affordable metrology instruments are needed to ensure that grazing incidence optics can meet emerging requirements for DOE Basic Energy Sciences (BES) synchrotron and FEL x-ray light sources. Currently, there is not a suitable instrument available in the United… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: IDEAS-TEK proposes to build a radiation hardened version of the open-source OpenRISC processor (32-bit RISC). OpenRISC is fully customizable and IDEAS-TEK has developed custom configurations that fulfill the solicitation"s requirements. Radiation hardening will be accomplished by… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The commercial, human and military value of Earth"s orbital space is immense. To ensure operational security, obviate collisions, and preclude potential threats in the particularly valuable region of GEO space requires that we know what is there, and how the vast number of spacecraft… more
Abstract:Historically, designing a nuclear thermal rocket engine and determining fuel performance has been a refractory and anfractuous process. Typically, fuel forms would be developed and tested in separate tests of mechanical, radiation and thermal testing, and, in the NERVA program, the fuel elements… more
Abstract:It is extremely important to understand and control the temporal characteristics of electron beams at accelerator photoinjectors. Measuring and setting the electron bunch length is critical to the operation of the accelerator, and can ultimately determine if physics experiments at user-based… more
Abstract:This project employs a massively parallel, low cost, low power, associative-memory pattern detection processor soon-to-market by a major semiconductor producer. Phase 1 will use a microprocessor emulator to develop, test, and analyze"very large scale anomaly detectors"(developed under a… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Investing in innovation that moves toward the widespread use of satellite autonomy has the potential to yield significant benefits to the space situational awareness (SSA) community. Most notably, if satellite platforms have the ability to detect and respond to events without exchanging… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This program develops a Modular Propulsion system design and demonstration test bed that continues the efforts of the Phase I program that established the feasibility of a green propellant based modular propulsion system. Two reduced toxicity propellants will be considered: LMP-103S and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Incorporating hosted payloads onto satellites deployed for other primary missions is an approach that has the potential to provide benefits to both the hosted payload user community and the host satellite providers. But getting rides to space and accommodation on a dedicated satellite bus… more
Abstract:For spacecraft developers who spend millions to billions of dollars per unit and require 3 to 7 years to deploy, the LoadPath reduced-order (RO) modeling thermal design tool is an innovative software tool that will significantly reduce labor costs and effort associated with the design and analysis… more

Because of our ever-increasing dependence on the services they provide, we expect future electronic products to have improved reliability and increased performance. Microelectronic devices, an essential component of… more
Abstract:O-glycosylation is one type of important protein modification and plays crucial roles in many cellular processes. Currently, there is limited commercial source for the glycosyl amino acid building blocks that can be utilized in glycopeptide synthesis. Inthis Phase I project, Life BioScience Inc.… more
Abstract:In this Phase II effort, SK Infrared LLC, is collaborating with Raytheon Vision Systems (RVS) to demonstrate a dual color 512x512 30 um pitch long wave/long wave (LW/LW) pBp focal plane array (FPA) hybridized to a RVS SB410 Read Out Integrated Circuit (ROIC). The SB410 is a 512x512 30 micron pitch… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I Project proposes to develop a novel non-invasive diagnostic imaging tool for the early detection of skin cancer. In this project, a controlled temperature stimulus is applied to the suspected lesion and the thermal recovery process is captured with an… more
Abstract:NASA has proposed several missions to land a craft on an asteroid and potentially to return samples from it. While large asteroids in the asteroid belt can exhibit a significant amount of gravity, most near-earth asteroids are small and show a surface gravity of less than 0.1% of earth. Landing,… 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.
