Abstract:Navy Submarines utilize a large number of undersea electrical connections to systems located outside the pressure hull (sonar, radar, communications masts etc). Long service life of undersea connectors is critical since maintainance and replacement is difficult and costly. Protection of undersea… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: To provide longer operating time and reduced weight power supplies for military platforms including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and solider communication devices, transformative advances are needed to increase the electrochemical energy storage density of batteries. The energy… more
Abstract:Autonomous systems acquire massive amounts of sensor and communications data over the course of their potentially lengthy missions. Ideally, such systems would incorporate current and historical data into their decision making processes to generalize from experience and avoid repetitive errors.… more
Abstract:All military and many commercial aviators are required to undergo periodic hypoxia training to recognize the onset of hypoxic conditions and practice recovery skills. Current training is performed with the Reduced Oxygen Breathing Device 2 (ROBD2) which mixes oxygen and nitrogen to produce reduced… more
Abstract:We will develop and demonstrate the key elements in a novel alternative method of fabrication of the heaters for dispenser types cathodes. The current methods depend on a wire that may soon not be manufactured anymore. The proposed method, radically alters the manufacturing approach introducing a… more
Abstract:This Phase I SBIR program will define the requirements and the development plan for a broadband monolithic microwave transceiver integrated circuit which will enable the production of the next generation of precision end-game proximity sensors suitable for deployment on low-cost high-volume… more
Abstract:Mustang proposes to develop innovative, low Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) Digital Receiver Exciter (DREX) technologies needed for simultaneous operation of the U.S. Navy Fire Scout Radar Autonomous Collision and Avoidance System (RACAS) and Coherent Automatic Radar Periscope Detection and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Mustang Technology Group, LP is proposing a Phase I SBIR study that will expand the capability of air delivered weapons by providing a low cost, small form factor, multi-function radar seeker which has a flexible architecture which supports multiple radar modes and high speed data link… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Mustang Technology Group, LP proposes an aggressive program of innovation research for the design of a rugged, open architecture, long-life data transfer device that will lower overall life cycle costs by avoiding future obsolescence. This proposed Phase I effort focuses on reviewing the… more
Abstract:Attaining rapid transportation of samples 50-1000 miles in an austere environment requires air transportation. Past applications have included UAV"s which transport the sample to selected location and drop the sample via guided parachute These systems can be quite accurate but they are… more
Abstract:The benefits of concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) systems with regard to total system efficiency are well known in commercial applications and operate at system efficiencies near 30% with some demonstration systems operating above 40%, compared with 15-20% peak efficiency for conventional PV. Because… more
Abstract:Anti-Tamper systems are designed to prevent and/or delay the exploitation of critical technologies. One of the major tools for reverse engineering is x-ray imaging, often used with computer-aided tomography to enable 3-dimensional information gathering of an IC structure. Thus, a device which can be… more
Abstract:Diagnostic characterization of tailpipe emission of nitrogen oxides (NOx) is becoming increasingly important as environmental concern and government regulations are requiring the use of complex NOx monitoring and destruction schemes, especially in diesel fueled engines. As these… more
Abstract:Selection of the Plasma-Facing Component (PFC) material composition is a primary consideration in future fusion reactor design. The PFC materials must not only withstand the harsh operating conditions of the reactor, but the amount of tritium uptake experienced by the PFC during… more
Abstract:Rapid evaluation of ocular injuries in austere environments requires the acquisition and transmission of visual examination data by relatively unqualified individuals due to the lack of qualified ophthalmologists or optometrists in many remote, hostile, or disaster regions. In order to be useful for… more
Abstract:Mitigation, correction, or cancellation of the deleterious effects of atmospheric turbulence on wide field of view (WFOV) imagery is desired to increase the efficiency and accuracy of visual tasks performed at a distance. With recent advances in optical components, coatings, microfabrication, and… more
Abstract:Thermophotovoltaic (TPV) energy conversion produces electrical power from heat energy using, in its most basic form, a thermal emitter and a photovoltaic converter. Since these systems typically have no or few moving parts, they provide a long term maintenance-free power generation. Key factors… more
Abstract:US troops and equipment are increasingly at risk for irradiation by lasers, whether it be from enemy targeting and ranging systems, designators, or high-energy lasers as weapons themselves. Countering the threat requires detection of the incident laser radiation, the direction from which it is… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Military space assets can have special constraints in form factor and function. For example, fluid cooling systems normally used for electronics and sensor cooling suffer numerous drawbacks in space applications. Conversely, compact, solid-state thermoelectric devices provide many… more
Abstract:The feasibility of development and production of lightweight nonwoven fabric for parachute cloth application was clearly demonstrated during the SBIR Phase I project. The nonwoven fabrics made during the Phase I project had comparable strength and air permeability as that of the current woven nylon… 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.
