Abstract:The Air Force has identified a need for a system that provides improved firefighter and rescue personnel access to cockpits and speeds pilot extraction under ground emergency conditions. Emergency personnel must be able to open the canopy, accomplish engine shutdown, make the ejection system safe,… more
Abstract:Rocky Research has developed a novel armor material (COMBAM) that provides lower cost and better performance than Kevlar. Preliminary samples show at least 15% mass savings compared to conventional ballistic armor, for protection against the same threat level. COMBAM also has enhanced ability for… more
Abstract:Sierra Engineering Inc. (Sierra) believes that the subject triaxial liquid propellant swirl injector has the potential to meet many of NASA's Earth-to-Orbit (ETO) propulsion systems goals. The triaxial swirl injector is ideally suited to a wide range of liquid oxidizers and fuels, including hydrogen… more
Abstract:The pace and cost of developing an engine system for future explorations is strongly influenced by the inadequacies of design tools and the supporting databases. The inability to predict the internal operating environments of a combustion chamber during the design process necessitates design… more
Abstract:We propose to study the feasibility of demonstrating a capability-based operating system running a home control application on an embedded processing platform. Capability-based systems have documented advantages in security and reliability, but no commercial system is available for an embedded… more

Abstract:This proposal discusses the development and application of new methods of structural-acoustic analysis in order to address existing problems in aircraft interior noise prediction. The proposed methods are based on a hybrid modeling strategy that combines Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and… more
Abstract:In a CDC-sponsored SBIR Grants 2000 Phase I Solicitation, proof-of-concept of the patented wearable Eye Com-6 Biosensor-Communicator-Controller (EC-6) as a reliable drowsiness detection tool was demonstrated. Consisting of 2 IR-sensitive microcameras, IR eye-illuminating LED's and detectors affixed… more
Abstract:The proposing company's reformable, reusable tooling can substantially reduce the time, cost and effort associated with conventional or alternative tooling while providing the flexibility for prototyping iterations, short-run or low rate manufacture through lengthy product cycles. This Phase II… more
Abstract:The use of reformable, reusable tooling can greatly reduce the time, cost and skills required for conventional tooling production, and no waste products are generated since the tooling materials themselves can be rapidly cycled from a hard tooling-capable state to a liquid-like state and back to the… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will demonstrate superior power-delivery, rapid-charge, and long cycle-life performance of prototype carbon-coated, nanoparticle-based electrodes for use in inherently safe, moderate-to-large sized lithium ion batteries of various… more
Abstract:Currently, the benefits of objective trail information are limited in rural areas because the team of people required to complete the UTAP is difficult and costly to assemble. The USDA Forest Service is responsible for the management of 133,000 miles of trails and public lands with trails held by… more
Abstract:The goals of this Phase II SBIR include development of a strike planning deconfliction system, providing a real-time implementation for replanning, providing a mechanism to deconflict with fallout of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD), and providing a scalable and extensible mechanism to support… more
Abstract:Practical methodologies were developed in Phase 1 to efficiently design nonlinear composite ducts and panels with large anomalies and cutouts for buckling, will be verified in Phase II with a comprehensive test/analysis correlation program. The analysis system is automated and integrated into the… more
Abstract:The Feather Weight Display is a novel design and integration of industrially mature technologies including ultra-density silicon circuits with ultra-dense chip-to-chip interconnections, ultra-density VCSEL arrays, nonlinear photonic upconverting color materials, and nonlinear optical elements. To… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this project is to produce "humanized" livers in large animal models such as sheep and pigs that can serve as a reliable source of significant numbers of functional human hepatocytes. The isolated human hepatocytes and/or "humanized" livers can be… more

Abstract:75605-The United States Department of Energy has estimated that from the 1940s through the 1970s, 126,000 cubic meters of transuranic wastes were disposed of by shallow burial and other techniques at sites owned and operated by the federal government. The excavation and retrieval of the transuranic… 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.
