Abstract:Practical methodologies were developed in Phase 1 to efficiently design nonlinear composite ducts and panels with large anomalies and cutouts for buckling, will be verified in Phase II with a comprehensive test/analysis correlation program. The analysis system is automated and integrated into the… more
Abstract:The Feather Weight Display is a novel design and integration of industrially mature technologies including ultra-density silicon circuits with ultra-dense chip-to-chip interconnections, ultra-density VCSEL arrays, nonlinear photonic upconverting color materials, and nonlinear optical elements. To… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this project is to produce "humanized" livers in large animal models such as sheep and pigs that can serve as a reliable source of significant numbers of functional human hepatocytes. The isolated human hepatocytes and/or "humanized" livers can be… more
Abstract:76166-Although permeable reactive barriers are an important new treatment option for groundwater remediation, no reliable methods are available to monitor or predict their long-term behavior. The large-scale implementation of reactive barriers will require a means of monitoring their long-term… more
Abstract:75605-The United States Department of Energy has estimated that from the 1940s through the 1970s, 126,000 cubic meters of transuranic wastes were disposed of by shallow burial and other techniques at sites owned and operated by the federal government. The excavation and retrieval of the transuranic… more
Abstract:We present a highly qualified team, including security experts and technical experts, and a patent-pending new microcantilever array sensor technology (which has been tested for chemical and explosive detection) to be integrated with low-cost electronics and networking modules and implemented as… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Falls are the leading cause of US injury deaths among people 65 and older, and at least two of every three residents of skilled nursing facilities (SNF) fall at least once each year. This Phase I study will assess key parameters of a new wireless, non-restraint… more
Abstract:The primary goal of the proposed Phase II effort is to develop monolithic distributed optoelectronic crossbar modules for implementation of high performance distributed crossbar backplanes. The high density monolithic crossbar modules will enable distributed backplane architectures that are highly… more
Abstract:Optoelectronic technologies make it possible to construct systems that are tolerant to the unique threats of aerospace environments. The goal of this proposed Phase II effort is to develop, fabricate, and demonstrate OptiComp Corporation's (OCC) WDM optoelectronic transmitter and receiver… more
Abstract:The goal of this proposed Phase I STTR effort is to demonstrate the feasibility of incorporating photonic crystal (PC) technology within OCC's existing optoelectronic module technology. This will be accomplished through the design and modeling of PC light emitters and waveguides, as well as… more
Abstract:The Air Force has identified a need for a system that provides improved firefighter and rescue personnel access to cockpits and speeds pilot extraction under ground emergency conditions. Emergency personnel must be able to open the canopy, accomplish engine shutdown, make the ejection system safe,… more
Abstract:The Missile Defense Agency is seeking concepts and associated technologies for the next generation multi use kinetic kill vehicle that will allow effective vehicle attitude and divert control in both exo- and endo-atmospheric flight regimes. In addition, they seek new concepts for internal vehicle… more
Abstract:The Navy has identified a need for a very compact and rugged attitude control system to maintain "nose first" attitude for projectiles that travel outside the atmosphere. This solicitation specifically addresses an attitude control system design sized to provide torque sufficient to rotate a 100 kg… more
Abstract:The proposed Phase II effort is to build two complex compound prototypes to remove 4.6 kW heat from laser diodes at 280K to 300K.

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.
