Abstract:Since there is no clear final configuration, ASR has chosen to contemplate a design concept to be accomplished during a potential Phase II award along with a Phase I work plan to demonstrate feasibility of the Phase II concept. ASR proposes to develop an HPM source for deployment into the MLRS M26… more
Abstract:Recent advances in electrically small antennas have been proposed for a range of communications applications. In general these antennas have wide impedance bandwidths, but low efficiency and power handling capabilities. Recently members of our team at the University of Arizona have developed a class… more
Abstract:Seismic detection systems are one of the primary means used to monitor subsurface nuclear explosions. Consequently, the study of previous seismic events provides a critical underpinning for ongoing nonproliferation efforts. In this proposal, Retriever Technology will continue its efforts to develop… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project seeks to develop a cognitive radio system to provide reliable wireless communications to first responders. The ability to effectively use wireless is critical in emergency incident management and has been a major issue since 9/11 - with… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Kestrel Corporation's Distorted Grating Wavefront Sensor detects can be used to sense against point source (classical active beacon) or passively against the image of an extended source. The DGWFS is more tolerance of harsh seeing conditions, such as scintillation, than Shack… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The purpose of this proposal is to develop a new instrument capable of meeting the Air Force"s priority requirements for measurements of combustion and gas dynamic properties inside gas turbine engines and augmentors. To meeting these needs, Kestrel"s proposed Imaging… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: MSI has an impressive history of developing aircraft propulsion system health monitoring systems. We have developed a new technology, a"smart connector"which reduces the size from a circuit card assembly to a small module that fits inside a rugged mil-spec 38999 propulsion… more
Abstract:MSI proposed to modify previously developed EPIC hardware, demonstrated in the Army Stryker SIL, for use on the EA-6B aircraft. The new application will monitor control buses and power lines to determine the cause of AN/AIC-45 communications system lockups. These lockups cause a safety of flight… more
Abstract:Management Sciences (MSI) has developed fundamental technologies to improve situation awareness and agility in dynamic, uncertain environments. For instance, in a USMC SBIR CPP MSI is developing real time situation awareness for Sense and Respond Logistics. In a Phase II DARPA SBIR MSI is developing… more
Abstract:Ammonia gas that is emitted from agriculture can create health problems for workers and, surprisingly, for people far from the agricultural operation. Once released into the air, the ammonia undergoes a series of chemical reactions that lead to small particles (known as PM2.5) that are inhaled deep… more
Abstract:We are improving critical technologies needed for the development of laser-driven, table-top ultrafast x-ray sources suitable for ultrafast characterization of transient structures of energized molecules undergoing dissociation, isomerization, or intramolecular energy redistribution. In this SBIR… more
Abstract:Mesa Photonics plans development of a remote sensor to be used to detect clandestine nuclear material processing. We have identified a volatile chemical that is indicative of key steps in uranium isotope enrichment, and can be detected readily at low concentrations using optical methods. Small… more
Abstract:Chemical sensitive imaging of heterogeneous materials and biological cells requires a sensitive, high spatial resolution microscopy method based on vibrational resonances that is capable of performing in situ spectroscopy with both frequency and time resolution. In this SBIR/STTR, we will develop a… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project proposes to develop novel approaches to water treatment that cost-effectively remove inorganic disinfection byproducts (DBPs) in water. These DBPs, known as oxyhalides, are typically associated with standard water disinfection methods but can… 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.
