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:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ability to print full-scale tissue analogues with realistic look, feel, and material properties directly from medical imaging data would have wide application in the MedSim market including planning and rehearsing patient-specific surgical cases,… 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
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We will build a portable instrument for quick, easy, and non-invasive, assessment of dietary zinc deficiency. Our proposed diagnostic measurements can be done in just 2-3 minutes per subject, with spectroscopic readings taken off one of the subject's … more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This proposal sets out a plan to continue the method development for selective chemical oxidization of one amine of a polyamino, multi-heterocyclic class of energetic materials. The approach is based on screening one substrate (DAAzF) with many different oxidants under a variety of… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Alkali atoms are utilized in a wide range of applications including atomic clock references, cold-atom physics, quantum computing, low quantum-defect alkali vapor lasers, and next-generation precision navigation and timing (PNT) instruments. The demand for navigation-grade and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Many peer-reviewed publications show that Bisphenol A (BPA)-based polycarbonate (PC) and all other commonly used hard and clear (HC) plastics (e.g., polyethylene terephthalate (PET), glycol-modified polyethylene terephthalate (PETG), and polystyrene (PS)) leach… more
Abstract:Neutron scattering is a powerful technique that is critically important for materials science and structural biology applications. Pressurized 3He tubes are widely used in this field. However, the severe 3He shortage prevents this medium from satisfying even current installation upgrades. Clearly… more
Abstract:CTH is an expert level High Performance Computing (HPC) code developed by Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) to model a wide range of shock wave propagation and material motion phenomena. SNL continues to develop the technical capabilities of CTH, and, as a result, CTH is considered one of the most… more
Abstract:Protection Engineering Consultants (PEC) proposes to develop a coarse-grain neural network modeling approach for efficient simulation of shock propagation through geological media including soil-structure interaction. In the coarse-grain approach, fast-running computational elements are developed… more
Abstract:Protection Engineering Consultants (PEC) will use the results of the Phase I numerical analyses of armored tactical vehicles subjected to landmine detonation to further explore, develop, and validate state-of-the-art numerical modeling and simulation (M & S) tools and techniques. In Phase I, PEC… more
Abstract:Soldiers and Unattended Sensors can gain a significant advantage from advances in camera technology and automated image processing techniques. The processing and resource requirements to utilize these advances, however, impose an unacceptable burden in terms of power consumption and/or weight. The… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Mobile phone technology offers a variety of opportunities for innovative approaches to health communication and intervention. These opportunities have been amplified by the emergence of next-generation smartphone devices that are capable of rich multimedia and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this 3 year Fast-Track STTR is to develop and evaluate a home-based intervention ('it's Your Game- Family') to provide age-appropriate sexual health life skills education and training for children (11-14 years) and to enhance… more
Abstract:Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV) such as Fire Scout could increase its utility to the fleet by operating as a node in an airborne star network. Such a system would need to support full-two way communication with up to six other nodes for transfer and relay of data, imagery, command and control with 360… 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.
