Abstract:Empires is a web-based game that addresses 36 pre-algebra Common Core State Standards in mathematics for 7th and 8th grades. The game follows a storyline in a recreation of an ancient empire which is at the brink of agricultural revolution and of becoming a trade economy. As students play the game,… more
Abstract:The current hydrothermal power generation is about 1/2% of total US electricity demand, which is small compared to the potential geothermal power that could be developed using Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS). EGS depends on creating or enhancing a geothermal reservoir by well stimulation in a hot… more
Abstract:Conventional water wells use well logging cameras to inspect the well. Today, geothermal wells must be cooled before video inspection. Cooling the well by pumping cold water into the well is expensive and damaging to the well. The well casing undergoes extreme changes in stress when the well is… more
Abstract:Modern ground warfare platforms are burdened with the critical need for escalating capabilities effectiveness in the face of prohibitive competition for platform size, weight, and power (SWAP). Traditionally, stand-alone sensor packages were developed singly, and treated as individual add-ons to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Early spacecraft were very expensive and took many years to painstakingly develop. The high cost and infrequency of space launches fostered a culture of exquisite performance at exquisite prices. With space access and usage becoming more prevalent, the modern metrics of development speed… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This effort will provide both a rapid, satellite thermal modeling tool and deployable radiator system specific to Responsive Space needs. The thermal analysis tool will allow users to make rapid decisions and apply appropriate hardware from a specific RS thermal toolbox. The deployable… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: In this proposal, SK Infrared LLC (SKI), a spin off from the Krishna Infrared Detector (KIND) laboratory at the University of New Mexico, is teaming up with Raytheon Vision System (RVS) to develop a flat top broadband high operating temperature mid wave infrared and long wave infrared… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This SBIR project is developing a system capable of remotely monitoring, in real-time, the adherence of an HIV patient to Antiretroviral therapy (ART). ART is a medication regimen that once started, needs to be followedfor the rest of the patient's life. ART… more
Abstract:NASA is soliciting new concepts for lightweight stabilized inflatables in regards to low weight, high storage density, and ease of deployment. What most of the inflatable concepts are lacking is the ability for integrated structural members that do not require permanent inflation pressure. Any… more
Abstract:New pollution control technologies are needed for small oil- and coal-fired industrial boiler located throughout the United States. Although each unit is relatively small, the vast number of these units creates a significant air pollution source, especially in heavily populated areas, that emits… more
Abstract:There is growing concern about the particulate pollution emitted by outdoor wood-fired boilers (0WBs) and their related health effects. These systems are also referred to as outdoor wood-fired hydronic heaters or outdoor wood-fired furnaces. There are currently over 500,000 OWBs installed, primarily… more
Abstract:Despite its sensitivity to diverse shape, surface, and material properties, laser polarimetry is one of the primary remaining remote-sensing modalities yet to be effectively utilized. The traditional limitations of laser polarimetry in a field sensor have been 1) making efficient use of… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: All High Energy Laser (HEL) systems require accurate pointing and precise stabilization of the laser beam to be effective. HEL systems hosted on aircraft pose an additional challenge to beam stabilization efforts due to the harsh linear and angular vibration environments inherent in such… more
Abstract:ATA proposes to develop, test and deliver an Optical Inertial Reference Unit (OIRU) called the MSTAR Inertial Reference Unit with DRGs (MIRU-D). The MIRU-D will incorporate four ATA ARS-14s and four Boeing MEMS DRGs on the inertially stable side of the MIRU-D. The efforts in Phase II will lay 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
