Abstract:Sonar transducer mounting hardware installed on current U.S. Navy submarines is constructed from metallic materials that have been found to have costly corrosion problems. Metallic transducer mounting brackets are heavy, are constructed from expensive corrosion resistant metals, use expensive… more
Abstract:The Naval Surface Fire support program is developing an upgrade to the Mk-45 gun which will require enhanced propellant charges to increase muzzle energy. The gun barrel needs to be lengthened from a 5"/54 to a 5"/70 caliber to allow sufficient in-bore volume for the complete combustion of the… more
Abstract:Navy fiber optic connectors use a heat cured adhesive to hold the fiber within the connector ferrule. A cure time of twenty minutes at 120Â¿ C is currently required. A fast curing (< 3 minutes), room temperature cure adhesive with physical properties that meet the current specification… more
Abstract:The photonics mast (PM) and integrated ESM mast outer sensor heads/housings planned for advanced submarine (NSSN) system applications will be exposed to demanding structural loads and severe environmental exposures. The PM housings must be able to withstand hydrostatic loads, hydrodynamic loads,… more
Abstract:40837 November 13, 1996
Crosswell Seismic Imaging holds great promise for imaging the region between existing oil wells to incrementally increase the recovery of the 368 billion barrels of oil still in the ground (of the 500 billion barrels… more
Abstract:40828 November 13, 1996
While seismic data are used to determine the presence and extent of underground oil and gas reservoirs, their interpretation is very difficult. For example, it is crucial to know whether features observed in the… more
Abstract:The proposed work will explore possibilities for a less than 100 Watt-hour, pocket-sized, Trymer-"Type", thermoelectric generator that converts high energy-density fuels into electrical power for small system usage. Computer models and an actual small-scale working generator will be developed in… more
Abstract:This innovation proposes the use of a thin film stratospheric balloon to lift a launch vehicle with a payload to an altitude above most of the Earth's atmosphere, then ignite the launch vehicle rocket motor. It will have the capability to carry the payload to its final destination, either into… more
Abstract:Improved methods for frozen storage of glycerolized red blood cells (RBCs) are needed both tomeet military and civilian needs in periods of high demand. Existing deglycerolization ssytems are labor intensive and considered "open" systems resulting in a maximum storage of 24hrs following washing. The… more
Abstract:Babet Engineering proposes to investigate the following five (5) possible methods of fume control or recovery for ocean-going vessels: 1. Vapor Balancing - Fumes would be transported back to the tank from which the fuel was pumped. 2. Absorption - i. A chilled lean oil (above 32 degrees F) system… more
Abstract:Wilfred Baker Engineering, Inc. proposes to develop a shaped charge case that weighs significantly less than the traditionally-used metal case with performance comparable to metallic case shaped charges. The proposed case will house a shaped charge which will be suitable for clearance of anti-tank… more
Abstract:Wilfred Baker Engineering, Inc., Proposes to develop an explosive system to clear a wide variety of obstacles from the surf zone and craft landing zone during an amphibious assault. The proposed approach will be suitable for clearance of individual obstacles or systematic clearance of a lane. The… 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.
