Abstract:Baldwin Environmental Inc. (BEI) successfully completed an SBIR Phase I project that demonstrated the feasibility of designing and producing a Fine and Coarse Particulate Monitoring System (FCPMCEMS). This system simultaneously measures and reports mass concentrations of fine and coarse particulate… more
Abstract:Recreation trails are a key component of the social, economic and health of rural communities. People with mobility impairments are often excluded from trails, shared-use paths, parks and other public areas where barriers are erected to prevent access by motorized trail vehicles (MTVs), to control… more
Abstract:The invention of Electrically Controlled Extinguishable Solid Propellants (ECESP) over the last five years opens the door for completely new ways of controlling solid rocket motors. When the propellant is fitted with electrodes and a current of the required voltage is applied, the propellant… more

IDEA International, Inc., in conjunction with the Harvard… more
Abstract:One of the most widely used geophysical methods for monitoring flow within the shallow subsurface is Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT). The latest generation of ERT systems can monitor data to a precision of around 1%, allowing in situ changes to be interpreted within a few percent. In turn,… more
Abstract:The remarkable sensitivity, compactness, low cost, low power-consumption, scalability, and versatility of microcantilever sensors make this technology possibly the best solution for container screening. In Phase I, Nevada Nanotech Systems (NNTS) successfully demonstrated all components of a… more
Abstract:This Phase II SBIR Program will investigate and demonstrate the feasibility of extending OptiComp's (OCC) intelligent distributed data communications architecture and optoelectronic (OE) interconnect technology to inter-satellite data communication systems. OCC's proprietary optoelectronic… more
Abstract:This proposal describes two potential methods to replace the Electronic Function Selector (EFS) currently used to program a sonobuoy. Quoin proposes to develop a Handheld Remote (HR) programmer unit through one of two proposed approaches. Either of these modifications to the sonobuoy will make it… more
Abstract:New requirements for modern gun systems have greatly increased the propellant flame temperature and reactivity of the combustion products. As a result, thermochemical erosion can greatly reduced the service life of the gun tubes in these systems. Coatings, liners, additives, and deterred… more
Abstract:The demand for higher performance rocket motors at a reduced cost requires continuous improvements in understanding and controlling propellant combustion. Numerous examples are available where seemingly minor modifications and improvements to existing solid rocket systems have caused previously… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is to determine the feasibility of developing a hydrodynamic combustion stability analysis design tool for rockets, gas turbines, and large engines. As combustors are run at leaner mixture ratios to avoid NOx pollutant issues, vortex… 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.
