This proposal addresses this need via development of a novel plasma panel based neutron detector designed to take advantage of low cost, large area, plasma display panel TV technology. A new type of… more
Abstract:Abstract A joint DOE-NCI workshop on ion beam therapy (January 2013, Bethesda, MD) has identified an ambitious set of technological developments needed to support a world-class treatment program for ion beam therapy. One important requirement is the ability to provide detectors that afford… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Legacy military aircraft have a long-standing requirement for monitoring bus activity between control elements and weapons/sensor systems. The Bus Characterization and Integrity Toolset (BCIT) was a successful series of Phase I, II, and III SBIRS from 2004 onwards. BCIT was the first of… more
Abstract:Aerospace manufacturers are using composite structures in aircraft and they are the future of aviation. Composites reduce weight and maintenance costs. Today, many composite structures are joined together with fasteners. However to meet future design r

These algorithms will include new image-formations techniques tailored the airborne passive SAR scenario specified by the customer. Additionally,… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The goal of this SBIR is to explore the art of the possible and buy back performance using synergy and data fusion between multiple RF sensor munitions cooperating in flight. Our team, Matrix Research and Wright State University, will show how signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) can be … more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Specialized aircraft coatings can degrade over time and impact desired performance. Current reflectometers measure at normal incidence to the surface which does not accurately predict the electrical performance of the material across the aircraft's surface. It is desirable to… more

Abstract:This proposal presents a hybrid metal-CMC turbine blade. A SiC/SiC CMC airfoil section will be bonded to a single crystal superalloy root section in order to mitigate risks associated with an all-CMC blade inserted in a superalloy disk. This allows current blade attachment technology (SX blade… more
Abstract:Catapult shuttle wheel bearing loading is a function of the aircraft take-off weight and the acceleration of the catapult. The resultant load on the bearings of the existing catapult has significantly changed from the time the subject bearings were selected in 1980. If the projected aircraft… 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.
