Abstract:The tow cable strands used to tow the AQS-20A from the RMMV are made from Nitronic 50, an austenitic stainless steel that, under normal circumstances, exhibits excellent corrosion resistance and strength over a wide temperature range. Unfortunately, the cables are experiencing early life corrosion… more
Abstract:Current air flasks utilized by the Navy for SCUBA diving weigh about 40 lbs and are rated for 3,000 psi internal pressure, providing 30 minutes to an hour of air supply from a single tank. The Navy desires to increase mission capability for free-swimming divers, but air supply remains the most… more
Abstract:Transparent armor usually ranks among the heaviest of all materials on tactical vehicles per size and weighs significantly more than opaque armor at the same protection level. This is due to the large thicknesses required to provide the required ballistic protection. For this reason, transparent… 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:ABSTRACT: Aircraft oleo-pneumatic landing gear shock struts require a precise gas to fluid ratio. Measuring oil fluid level explicitly requires time consuming service and temporary aircraft inoperability. Current approaches to verify the operational readiness of landing gear shock struts forgo… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The annual cost of corrosion for Air Force aircraft and missiles is estimated to $5.4 billion with corrosion accounting for 32.2% of the maintenance budget. Military performance requirements for materials qualification often rely on pass/fail measurements of flat panels exposed in… more
Abstract:Luna Innovations will determine the feasibility of modifying our novel bio-encapsulation technology for enhanced recovery of viral and bacterial targets from swab-like biospecimens. In the proposed Phase I, Luna will work with Dr. Hudson (North Carolina State Univiersity, College of Textiles) in… more
Abstract:Luna Innovations and its team members are implementing advanced material alternatives in traditional rotorcraft magnetic seal assemblies for direct Army platform applications. Specifically, the team is improving the mated pair combination of the carbon-graphite face seal component and the hard face… more
Abstract:As the roles and materials of modern tactical aircraft have evolved, the coating systems that protect them have become significantly more complicated. Airframe structural components can be especially susceptible to corrosion, as sea water can collect and dwell in these areas. In the coating stack… more
Abstract:Marine biofouling is a significant problem on ship hulls, increasing fuel consumption and decreasing speed/efficiency. Traditional coatings prevent fouling through controlled release of biocidal compounds (e.g. metals, copper or zinc, or organics, tributyltin). The continuous leaching of these… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Counteracting the threat of intoxication by organophosphorus nerve agents (OP's) is an important mission for homeland security as well as for treating workers exposed to pesticides. OP's act on acetylcholinesterase to prevent synaptic inactivation,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Mycotoxin is naturally occurring and is a toxic small molecule produced by fungi. These fungal toxins are representative of a large number of lipophilic agents that pose significant acute and chronic dangers to militarycombatants as potential warfare agents.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Drug toxicity due to either overdose or abusive use represents a major healthcare problem. According to the Toxic Exposure Surveillance System data pharmaceuticals are implicated in 42% of all poisoning cases with gt123,000 annual cases caused by therapeutic… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Adhesion formation after intra-abdominal surgery poses a significant health risk, cited as a leading cause of small bowel obstruction and female infertility. Methods to prevent these adhesions are currently limited to barrier films which are difficult to place… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women with about 200,000 new cases and 40,000 deaths each year in the United States. Novel approaches for the detection of primary and metastatic breast cancers are urgently needed to increase the survival of patients.… more
Abstract:The emergence of new infectious diseases and the resurgence of previously controlled diseases are creating unprecedented public health challenges, threatening both global health and national security. The ability to rapidly detect and identify these infectious organisms is critical for the accurate… more
Abstract:This Phase II program will build and deliver a tunable single-frequency laser operating in the 1.645 micron region on optimum CH4 absorption line features. Under this program an all-solid-state parametric-converted laser will be delivered to NASA LaRC which will be suitable for acquiring… more
Abstract:We have developed a common architecture for laser transmitters that address requirements for water vapor as well as ground and airborne ozone lidar systems. Our innovative approach to these requirements has the advantages of reducing size, weight and power (SWaP) as well as hardware cost for all of… more
Abstract:CO2 sensing using absorption bands near 1570nm is very attractive by taking advantage of the mature fiber-amplifier technology derived from fiber-optic telecom heritage. This necessitates sufficient power scaling in 1.5 micrometer fiber-amplifiers, either in the pulsed-mode, or in the cw-mode for… more
Abstract:NASA's Space Communications and Navigation (SCaN) roadmap, calls for an integrated network approach to communication and navigation needs for robotic and human space exploration missions, from near-Earth to planetary missions. Anytime, anywhere connectivity for Earth, Moon and Mars is a stated… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: We propose high-speed liquid crystal based beams-steering for 3D ladar systems using photon-counting arrays. Our proposed design takes into account tactical targeting requirements, and is compatible with integration into current generation of targeting pods. BENEFIT: (1) 3D ladar… more
Abstract:SiC power electronics are ideally suited for reducing the size and weight of power electronics systems that are used in wind power converters. Present power electronics systems require large transformers which operate a modest frequencies that prevents their use on top of the turbine tower. The… 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.
