Abstract:Fuel cells are being considered by the Army for future individual soldier power supplies. These power units are to be lightweight, compact and suitable for use on the battlefield. A compact, lightweight, safe source of pure hydrogen (and possibly oxygen) is urgently needed. The proposed report will… more
Abstract:COMPUTER MODELING OF MULTIDETECTOR, THREE-DIMENSIONAL IMAGING EXPLOSIVES DETECTION DEVICES IS A CRITICAL ASPECT OF THE DESIGN AND OPTIMIZATION OF THESE SYSTEMS. FOR ANY SYSTEM MODEL, THE TARGET LUGGAGE IS A COMMON DENOMINATOR. A LUGGAGE SIMULATION TOOL WHICH COULD GENERATE DATA FILES FOR INPUT INTO… more
Abstract:The purpose of this project is to define supportability parameters for Air Force C3I systems and construct algebraic models that facilitate design, development, and producibility decisions and ensure appropriate attention to supportability issues throughout the life cycle of the system. During this… more
Abstract:THIS PHASE I SBIR PROJECT WILL INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING INOCULATION TECHNIQUES FOR THE SUCCESSFUL CULTIVATION OF USTILAGO MAYDIS (COMMON CORN SMUT) EAR GALLS AS AN EMPLOYMENT AND INCOME-GENERATING CROP OPPORTUNITY IN RURAL AREAS WHERE THE CULTIVATION OF CORN IS A TRADITIONAL CROP.… more
Abstract:Future naval warfare could require higher-speed, greater coverage, and more powerful weapons in a sub-to-space fleet. Large power will be needed to drive advanced Propulsion and armaments (e.g. directed energy weapons) on the ships of this fleet. High-speed surface ships could be hydrofoils of… more
Abstract:THIS PROPOSED PHASE I RESEARCH PROJECT PROVIDES A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW REGIONAL SEISMIC DISCRIMINANTS, DEVELOPA STATISTICAL METHOD FOR IDENTIFYING EVENTS, DEVELOP QUALITY CONTROL PROCEDURES FOR ALLOWING FOR EFFECTS OF NOISE AND REGIONAL PROPAGATION EFFECTS ON DISCRIMINANTS, AND TO… more
Abstract:THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPUTERIZED SYSTEM FOR MONITORING LOCAL AND REGIONAL SEISMIC EVENTS IS PROPOSED. THIS AUTOMATED SYSTEM WILL INCORPORATE MANY OF THE ADVANCED SEISMIC ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES THAT CAN ONLY BE FOUND IN SPECIALIZED AND LARGE SYSTEMS FOR MONITORING UNDERGROUND NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS… more
Abstract:THE MANUFACTURING KNOWLEDGE SYSTEM (MKS) IS A PROTOTYPE FRAMEWORK FOR COMPUTER INTEGRATED MANUFACTURING (CIM) OF SEMICONDUCTORS WHICH IS UNDER DEVELOPMENT AT THE STANFORD CENTER FOR INTEGRATED SYSTEMS. THIS SYSTEM IS A SIGNIFICANT STEP FORWARD IN ADDRESING THE ISSUES OF OPENNESS, AVAILABILITY AND… more
Abstract:INCREASED PROTECTION OF OPTICAL FIBER DATA BUSSES WOULD REDUCE AIRCRAFT SYSTEM VULNERABILITY TO BALLISTIC DAMAGE AND INCREASE THE PROBABILITY OF ACCOMPLISHING MISSION GOALS. SUCH DATA BUSSES ARE EMPLOYED TO AVOID ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE, ALLOW INCREASED DATA RATES, AND DECREASE WIRING HARNESS… more
Abstract:SMART MATERIALS OFFER EXCITING OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ADAPTIVE STRUCTURES. SMART MATERIALS ARE A NEW CLASS OF MATERIALS, WHICH CONTAIN THEIR OWN INTERNAL SENSOR, ACTUATOR AND SIGNAL PROCESSING, ELEMENTS. THESE STRUCTURALLY AND FUNCTIONALLY INTEGRATED ELEMENTS GIVE THE MATERIAL THE… more
Abstract:The objective of this research is to develop a precise analytical depiction of the micro-level stress state in an intelligent material containing sensors and actuators. This state-of-the-art theoretical construct employs classical elasticity solutions, methodologies associated with finite element… more
Abstract:The high cost of development testing and pressure to reduce program timescales in the development of aircraft structures has led to increased use of advanced instrumentation. Of growing interest has been the integration of sensors into airfoil components, both to look outward at the behavior of the… more
Abstract:Existing, continuum-based models of plasticity cannot account for the Baushcinger effect and other asymmetries in plastic flow. This is because the Bauschinger effect has its origin in atomic-scale lattice defects known as dislocations. Dislocation propagation causes local shears, subject to rigid… more
Abstract:A MICRO-PULSE ELECTRON GUN THAT APPEARS CAPABLE OF PEAK CURRENTS OF ABOUT 10 KA WITH A MICRO-PULSE LENGTH OF SEVERAL PICOSECONDS (PS) OCCURING AT FREQUENCIES OF UP TO 10 GHZ IS BEING PLANNED. THE MICRO-PULSES OR BUNCHES ARE PRODUCED BY RESONANTLY AMPLIFYING A CURRENT OF SECONDARY ELECTRONS IN A… more
Abstract:THIS PROJECT INVOLVES THE ANALYSIS OF A HIGH HARMONIC, HIGH EFFICIENCY MICROWAVE GENERATOR THAT APPEARS TO BE SUITABLE FOR APPLICATIONS SUCH AS A DRIVER FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF LINEAR COLLIDERS. THE CONCEPT EMPLOYS A ROTATING "SPIRALING" BEAM TO EXCITE AND AMPLIFY CIRCULARLY POLARIZED MICROWARE… more
Abstract:AN ACCURATE MEANS IS RQUIRED FOR MEASURING RELATIVE HUMIDITY IN CLOUDS BECAUSE THIS PARAMETER IS ESSENTIAL IN THE EVOLUTION OF CLOUD MICROPHYSICS. THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW RH SENSOR CAPABLE OF MEETING THIS NEED IS BASED ON THE OPTICAL MEASUREMENT OF HAZE DROPLETS AS THEY RESPOND IN SIZE TO CHANGES… 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.
