Abstract:Virginia class submarines feature 134 hydraulic actuators critical to operational readiness. Currently, hydraulic actuators are overhauled on a time-based schedule as part of 600 series work, regardless of usage or condition. Superfluous hydraulic actuator maintenance results in extended… more
Abstract:Condition-based monitoring has the potential to significantly reduce operating costs for the U.S. Navy through enhanced maintenance scheduling and reduction in unnecessary inspections / overhauls. Embedded sensors provide monitoring capabilities for data acquisition, analysis and transmission when… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Luna has demonstrated the feasibility of a high speed extreme environment stress and strain measurement system operating at temperatures>900°C (1652°F) and streaming static and dynamic data at 2.5MHz. During Phase I Luna also demonstrated the system's ability to measure a 26… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) operating on high altitude long endurance (HALE) operation can cause sections of the aircraft to experience temperatures as low as -100°F. This is particularly damaging to the landing gear hydraulics and wheels. Critical low-temp weak points within the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: There is a need to identify, qualify, and certify post-repair corrosion-inhibiting self-healing coatings in order to inhibit further corrosion on aluminum substrates. Many technologies have been developed in academia and industry to reliably identify visible and hidden corrosion on… more
Abstract:Phase I study to determine tradeoffs and feasibility of dual mode RF/LADAR seeker. Work to focus on packaging and design tradeoffs to realize a design for a cost-effective compact dual mode seeker head. Emphasis will be on the LADAR design portion of the seeker, as RF seeker design is very mature.… more
Abstract:A near-real-time processing architecture and associated algorithms are proposed. The target application is a queued LIDAR system. The proposed approach will address hardware, firmware and software requirements needed for a near-real-time system. The objective of the Phase I effort is to develop a… more
Abstract:Prognostics and health management (PHM) technology is critical for monitoring, detecting, and managing impending faults and enabling proactive maintenance of electronic systems before actual failures occur. This is essential to enhancing weapons systems reliability and maintaining a high level of… more
Abstract:Nuvotronics is proposing to Navy SBIR number N132-087 to develop novel high efficiency, light weight, low manufacturing cost 94 GHz antenna modules toward future Active Denial Technology systems. RF passive components based on waveguides are generally very low loss but are heavy, expensive to… more
Abstract:High-power-handling, low-loss (1 dB) microwave phase shifters hold the key to affordable electronically steerable apertures for radar and communications, eliminating the need for active TR modules at every element. Nuvotronics proposes a solid-state approach which will provide loss performance equal… more
Abstract:Automated testing will need to become an integral part in the PMA-281 T & E program and an automated testing program needs to be developed and implemented. Since PMA-281 programs will comply with the OSD UCS Architecture, which is Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)-based, the PMA-281 T & E… more
Abstract:Laser & Plasma Technologies (LPT) is proposing an optical fiber coupled corrosion treatment system, in which a unique thermographic imaging technique is used for early detection of corrosion. Combined with fiber laser removal and repair technologies, the system provides the capabilities of… more
Abstract:MATSYS proposes to develop a processing technology to maximize the combustion efficiency of metal powders and enhance warhead blast performance. Metal powder particles are typically prepared by inert gas atomization and have very clean surfaces. These particles are then exposed to a controlled… 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.
