Abstract:Recent advances in conductive composites and coatings in the form of electromagnetic shielding materials by Metal Matrix Composites Company now make it possible to scale up the technology insertion opportunities to the stage of advanced commercialization and manufacturing. The materials described… more
Abstract:AccessData is proposing enhancements to its Distributed Network Attack (DNA)product to increase the functionality which will increase the number of workstations that can participate in the system; from approximately 1,000 to potentially 1,000,000 workstations. This will be accomplished by… more
Abstract:The continued advance of flat panel display technology in the commercial and consumer display industry offers the opportunity to provide wide field of view high resolution displays to the flight simulation community with significantly higher performance and lower cost than previously available. … more
Abstract:There is an urgent need for a man-transportable EOD robot which can quickly traverse the distance between its operator and the suspected UXO, perform manipulation tasks requiring high dexterity, and then quickly return. This proposal describes an innovative solution to this need called 'Taz'. Taz… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): After surgery patients are transferred to a post anesthesia care unit to fully recover from anesthesia. There is a much higher chance of an adverse clinical event occurring during this recovery time (24%) than in the op
erating room because patients are not as… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project developes methods to molecularly abort sorghum embryos, early in their development, to redirect nutrients, normally used for embryo development, toward starch accumulation. The research will construct and test genetic cassettes necessary for… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to apply the unique property of high-speed jets to adhere to nearby curved surfaces, with a turning radius much larger than the size of the jet - the so-called COANDA effect. The proposed research aims to take advantage of this… more
Abstract:A ceramic material is proposed wherein surface morphologies are used which enhance the heat transfer performance and reduce heat exchanger weight and volume. This technology would provide a means by which next generation return fuel/air cooler (RFAC) heat exchanger systems could be improved upon. … more
Abstract:Feasibility of a rechargeable lithium battery with sulfur cathode will be demonstrated. Air Force needs high specific energy, low cost rechargeable batteries for solar energy storage. Low cathode utilization and cycle fade have prevented Li-S batteries from reaching their potential. Cathode… more
Abstract:This STTR Phase I project is designed to develop a novel process for fabricating a nano-grained ceramic material for infrared windows. The proposed STTR builds upon our previous Phase I (Navy) SBIR experience to minimize risks and maximize the likelihood of success. This proposed work will utilize… more
Abstract:The proposed Phase I research will design and develop innovative technologies for the deployment of training and educational content to multiple platforms and realtime decision support, just in time learning, and adaptive training. Prototypes will include reuse of PACERs homeland security… more
Abstract:National attentions have returned to developing fuels from our vast domestic oil shale resource. However, a typical 10,000 bbl/day oil shale plant would release about 3000-4000 tons per day of carbon dioxide. Therefore, it is unlikely that construction permits for commercial oil shale projects will… 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.
