The excessive dependence on foreign energy resources poses a threat to the energy security of the nation. Materials produced from fossil sources also have a negative impact on the… more
Abstract:Radar sensor suites used by seekers and ISR platforms frequently must collect multiple types of radar data. In addition to moving target indication (MTI) data used for target tracking (tracking data), such systems often also collect high resolution radar information about specific targets in order… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Analytic Design Laboratories (ADL) proposes power tools for software Nuclear Safety Cross-Check Analysis (NSCCA). NSCCA exists because there is a vital concern that a nuclear weapon system not do certain things. For example, a nuclear armed missile shall not launch without proper… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Analytic Design Laboratories (ADL) proposes methodology development and power tools for hardware Nuclear Safety Cross-Check Analysis (NSCCA). NSCCA of hardware needs methodology development because it is a new discipline. It needs new tools because existing tools supporting software… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Air Force has struggled for years to effectively evaluate the reliability of its fielded repairable assemblies and systems. This SBIR Topic sets aside the metrics and analytical methods currently used to make reliability dependent forecasts of future demands and repair parts. It… more
Abstract:Analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) are necessary for many applications, including sensors, hardware based radio station, wireless systems, instrumentation, and power. These applications are often used in harsh environments which magnify the difficulty of designing complex ADCs due to the fact that… more

The circuit topology will be based on a fully differential, redundant SAR ADC which utilizes three high speed comparators to enable single clock conversion… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Cache memory is normally built with Static Random-Access Memories (SRAM ) and are necessary for many applications, including sensors, hardware based radio station, wireless systems, instrumentation, video, and power. These applications are often used in harsh environments including the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Non Volatile Memories (NVM) are necessary for many applications, including sensors, hardware based radio station, wireless systems, instrumentation, video, and power. These applications are often used in harsh environments including the medical radiological, nuclear, space, and military… more
Abstract:The Navy and USMC are embarking on an aggressive power and energy program for applications in surface and underwater vehicles as well as expeditionary systems. Limited by either shipboard space and weight or portability, the Navy and USMC require innovative technology solutions to increase… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: With shrinking facility budgets and increasingly stringent environmental regulations, United States Department of Defense (DoD) weapon system maintenance facilities are faced with the difficult challenge of maintaining regulatory compliance with limited resources. Moreover, the growing… more
Abstract:The development of large-area (m2) photodetectors with time resolutions of picoseconds (10-12 seconds) and submillimeter space resolutions would open new opportunities in collider detectors at the Energy Frontier, kaon and neutrino experiments at the Intensity Frontier, photon detection in… more
Abstract:A chemical threat agent mode of action is often initiated through a selective interaction with a biological molecule or structure. The agent binding mimics normal cellular processes, but then overruns natural control mechanisms leading to toxic and even lethal effects. The binding may be used as a… more
Abstract:Thermal batteries are single discharge reserve batteries that provide very long shelf life, minimal self-discharge, wide storage temperature range, fast activation under sudden power demand, and also wide range of temperature operating conditions. Such unique properties among electrochemical power… more
Abstract:With no moving parts other than a syringe pump, this tool will allow for the reliable measurement of flow rate as a function of depth within a geothermal wellbore and thus provide for improved reservoir management. By improving wellbore flow measurements, predictions of well performance will… more
Abstract:The Haber-Bosch process is the dominant industrial method for nitrogen fixation in the world, with production exceeding 140MM tons in 2009. This process of converting nitrogen and hydrogen to ammonia is one of the great scientific achievements in the modern world. However, Haber-Bosch process is… more
Abstract:Advances in soft X-ray detector technology have enabled higher count rates while maintaining high spectral resolution. These new superconducting detectors share the common form of a pixilated active area that must be operated in the milli-Kelvin temperature range below the boiling temperature of… more
Abstract:The US Department of Energy has a stated goal to increase the energy efficiency of turbines, and one well recognized method of achieving this is through the use of ceramic thermal barrier coatings (TBCs). However, state of the art zirconia-based TBCs have a temperature limit of about 1200oC, and new… 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.
