These coatings are applied by a plasma spray process, and the patented technology has reduced the cost of ownership for the U.S. Navy by reducing down time of submarines for… more
Abstract:Texas Research Institute Austin, Inc. (TRI/Austin) is developing a lithium-ion battery module that will manage individual cell thermal runaways in two ways. The active management path will be to monitor the internal temperature of the cell and remove the cell from the charging/discharging circuit if… more
Abstract:Millimeter and terahertz wave imaging can image objects behind or within other objects. However, current equipment that does this quickly is expensive, and affordable equipment is prohibitively slow. Researchers at Missouri S & T have successfully developed and demonstrated several innovative… more
Abstract:This proposal documents Phase II efforts of Tietronix Software Inc. as it relates to the combination of a multi-platform game with graphic novel elements in support of computer science education. Aegis is a software application that combines the playabili
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The United States is increasingly reliant on space-based technologies for surveillance, communications, and navigation. However, our satellites face significant threats from failures, space weather, and orbital debris and must become more survivable. A key component to more survivable… more
Abstract:Increasing the autonomy of unmanned vehicles potentially reduces operator workload and cognitive load. Realizing the promise of autonomy however, is difficult when deploying in environments with mobility and visibility challenges, enemy threats, risks of endangering civilians, and limited… more
Abstract:Mixed human-robot teams have potential to reduce risk to soldiers during missions while matching or improving performance over human-only teams. Responsibility to achieve mission goals can be shared between humans and robots to improve mission success and operational timeliness. Dynamic shifts of… more
Abstract:Autonomous vehicles are becoming more and more integral to our nation's defense. There is a desire to increase the autonomy of these vehicles and enable humans to delegate those tasks that are more effectively done by computer. Achieving this will require
Abstract:Many organizations have personnel performing complicated tasks at consoles. In many cases these tasks are defined by checklist procedures, complicated lists of the actions that need to be taken, as well as the readings that show the action was taken correctly. In the past, these checklists have… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: We propose a lamp for ultra-high speed photography according to the specifications of the solicitation. BENEFIT: The lamp design can be used for any ultra-high speed photography, particularly where the item under test is explosive or passes at sufficient speed to cause an over-pressure… more
Abstract:We propose a meta-model tool for developing a Shipboard Energy Use and Analysis system consisting of a shipboard component to capture energy use data interfacing with a shore-side analysis system. The proposed approach interfaces with existing shipboard and shoreside information systems for… more
Abstract:Williams-Pyro Inc. proposes to develop a connector design series that drastically improves upon impedance, electromagnetic shielding, survivability, corrosion resistance, and connector diameter relative to cable diameter. The connector series will be designed for cables transmitting various DC and… more
Abstract:The National Academy of Sciences issued a report in February 2008 detailing isotope replacement priorities in the interests of national security [National Research Council, 2008] . 137Cs used in self-contained irradiators was identified as the single most dangerous isotope in the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Electronic Warfare (EW) will be a critical aspect of potential future conflicts. After years of facing threats without significant EW threats, many EW operators are left with atrophied skills. This lack of real-world experience, combined with the rapid pace at which new threat… more
Abstract:The main objective of this project is to fabricate flexible low cost rugged and reliable high efficiency solar cells out of thin crystalline Silicon. This project will target prototypes of large area high efficiency (~ 22+%) PV cells made from flexible ultra thin (sub 50µm thickness)… more
Abstract:The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of producing large area, single crystal monolayer Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) for high frequency applications. In order to be able to achieve this aim, it is necessary to work on three main components: (a) the channel material itself,… more
Abstract:In 2000, shale gas represented just 1 percent of American natural gas supplies. Today, it is 30 percent and the percentage keeps increasing. The technology to drill and fracture the shale formations is now exported to the rest of the world, increasing the national oil and gas reserves in many… more
Abstract:Ascendant Engineering Solutions (AES) proposes to develop a Stabilized Laser and Tracking System (SLATS) for handheld Laser Target Markers (LTM). AES will leverage existing low-latency target tracking and their laser beam stabilization technologies to provide a mature solution to AFRL. As part of… more
Abstract:Ascendant Engineering Solutions (AES) proposes to continue the development of the Large Displacement, Tuned Deck Simulating Fixture for Medium Weight, Shock Isolated Equipment (LTMS) to address the Navy SBIR topic N123-158 - Innovative Approach to Low Cost Shock Testing Fixture for Medium Weight,… more
Abstract:There is an ongoing effort to replace high activity radioactive sources that could pose a risk for use as terrorist weapons with non-radioisotope based technologies. Currently radioactive sources serve a
number of critical needs including the treatment and diagnosis of disease, inspection and… 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.
