Abstract:This Phase I SBIR project will examine methods to make maps of magnetic fields with both high spatial resolution and high sensitivity. The sensing element will be an NV doped diamond. Magnetic fields will be measured by electron spin resonance. The Phase I work will show that diffraction limited… more
Abstract:Southwest Sciences, Inc., in collaboration with Prof. Jianhua (Jay) Wang MD, PhD of the University of Miami Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, proposes an improved approach to ocular surface imaging and mapping for automated fitting of ocular prosthetic devices. The approach combines state-of-the-art… more
Abstract:X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative as well as quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV (full… more
Abstract:X-ray absorption spectroscopy is a widely used experimental technique for studying the composition and chemistry of materials and is one of the driving forces behind the explosive growth of synchrotron light sources and their increase in brightness by many orders of magnitude. However, advances in… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: To reduce the risk of on-orbit collisions, the Joint Space Operations Center (JSpOC) tracks objects in its Space Catalog and forecasts potential conjunctions. Because both the size of the Space Catalog and its ephemeris update frequency are expected to grow significantly in the near term,… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: RF transmitting devices are found nearly everywhere today, ranging from lower-power cell phones to radar equipment to high-energy weapons systems. Accidental exposure of humans to the RF radiation emanating from these devices can cause harmful thermal effects including tissue damage or… more

Abstract:ABSTRACT: This Phase 1 effort covers the design and testing of a Data Fusion Processor / Controller, which resides on-board a satellite and interfaces directly with the available sensor package. The goal of this Phase 1 is to prove the feasibility of the concept and evaluate algorithm performance… more
Abstract:The scope of this effort is to design, build a prototype of, and characterize the performance of, the GPU-based Real-time Integrated Deconfliction (GRID) system. The baseline Phase I includes the design of the overall system and the constituent algorithms required to calculate no-fire zones in… more
Abstract:Improved cladding materials are needed for better structural stability in the corrosive high-pressure, hot-water environment of light water reactors, not only to extend fuel rod lifetime and increase fuel utilization (i.e., burn-up), but also to stave off run- away, active oxidation and melting of… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: High energy density capacitors are required for practical implementation of GW-class pulse power systems on mobile platforms. In response to this need, TPL has established unique dielectric and capacitor capabilities. Revolutionary materials, designs and manufacturing processes have… more
Abstract:The high heat fluxes experienced by plasma facing components in energy producing fusion devices would benefit from refractory metal layers on their surfaces; however, it is difficult to bond refractory metals to non-refractory structural and heat sink materials. Explosive welding is proposed to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Exploitation of U.S. systems is an increasing threat. Anti-Tamper (AT) technologies are being developed to counter this threat. Given the long life of U.S. systems, alternatives to primary batteries as power supplies for AT systems must be developed. Energy harvesting-based power supplies… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this Phase II competitive renewal project is to implement a clinical study to collect data to validate EyeStar(tm), a software system as the basis for comprehensive telescreening for all stages of diabetic retinopathy (DR). According to the CDC,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This proposed project is motivated by the fact that comprehensive, broad-scale screening for eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy (DR), including advanced stages, is economically prohibitive without the… more

Abstract:Understanding global warming requires continuous field measurements of carbon dioxide concentrations. High-precision measurements of a part-in-3000, or better, are required. However, these high-performance instruments must meet stringent cost objectives. A simple, rugged, infrared spectrometer can… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: We propose to develop and validate a strongly-coupled non-equilibrium plasma simulation model. Strongly coupled plasmas occur in a wide range of physical situations impacting a wide range of research and development areas connected to Air Force technology. The simulation model proposed… 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.
