Abstract:Detection and tracking of moving vehicles and dismounts across the land-sea boundary is very challenging because of the highly complicated dynamic heterogeneous littoral clutter environment. LSI proposes knowledge based adaptive signal processing techniques that will ultimately sense the dynamics of… more
Abstract:Sensor exploitation management is a key enabling technology to optimally use the capabilities of airborne radar systems with and without an operator-in-the-loop. LSI proposes to develop this capability to compliment a sensor resource manager capability that when integrated will result in… more
Abstract:Surface vessel detection and classification from airborne platforms relies heavily on radar at operationally useful stand off ranges. Upon detection the radar search waveform may be used to accrue additional information about the surface contact for classification but confidence is likely to be… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In the last decade there has been an explosive growth in the field of ubiquitin research, with approximately 530 human genes predicted to encode enzymes involved in the conjugation and deconjugation of ubiquitin. Of these 95 encode for deubiquitylases (DUBs). In… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Identification, quantification, and isolation of low abundance proteins from complex mixtures is, at best, a difficult task. This is especially the case for proteins carrying a post-translational modification (PTM) that affects their half-life or regulatory… more
Abstract:LithChem Energy (LCE) has developed a very high power (>12,000 W/kg) reserve battery for use in interceptor missiles such as the SM3-IIB where weight (power density) is very critical. This battery can be 100% checked and cycled before actual mission use to ensure 100% reliability and can be… more
Abstract:Nationwide about 2.4 billion gallons of lubricants are consumed annually for automotive crankcase (about 58%), industrial processes, machine lubrication, mining, and others. About 1 billion gallons/yr is currently collected as waste oil, equivalent to1-1.5% of annual US crude oil import volume. … more
Abstract:Advanced composite material systems are vital to the development of lightweight, multi-functional Army missile systems. In addition to reducing the weight of the structure, these material systems provide the ability to expand the function of the structure by tailoring stiffness and strength… more
Abstract:The current welded aluminum ramps on the Navy"s Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) hovercraft are prone to damage related to extreme vehicle and seaway load requirements in combination with corrosion and erosion due to the harsh salt-laden marine environment in which they operate. Improving… more
Abstract:The use of multiple materials on aircraft can result in galvanic corrosion, accelerated by the aggressive Navy operational environment. Traditional approaches to minimizing the galvanic activity of structural designs rely heavily on sealants, coatings, and other barrier techniques, all of which may… more
Abstract:In this proposal, Materials Sciences Corporation (MSC) and its manufacturing partner Seemann Composites Inc. (SCI) have defined several synergistic material science innovations that have the potential to lower the cost, or increase the performance at the current cost, of surface combatant sonar… more
Abstract:Layflat hoseline is used in Army water and fuel systems to transport bulk fluid over varying distances. Ease of storage, layout, and retrieval are desired characteristics offered by layflat hoses currently in use. In order to meet the Armys need for an improved hoseline with a higher working… more
Abstract:The primary objective of the proposed Phase II SBIR program is to demonstrate material modeling and process simulation tools for predicting properties of thermoplastic matrix composites (TPMCs) for next generation aviation and missile structures. In order to sufficiently characterize the influence… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Future hypersonic vehicles, like X-43 and X-51 derivatives and Falcon HTV-3, will require advanced strategies for thermal protection systems (TPS) and methods of structural integration. The goal in designing TPS for these types of high performance applications is to establish… more
Abstract:Navy aircraft employ components that are contoured for aerodynamic performance and made of composite sandwich structures for high strength-to-weight ratio. Many of these components presently use honeycomb cores surrounded by thin high strength face sheets. While honeycomb is used extensively, it can… more
Abstract:One of the main drivers in the design of nozzles for advanced air-to-air missiles deals with erosion caused by combustion gases. Erosion can happen by melting/sublimation, oxidation and mechanical abrasion depending on the nature of the propellant. Current de Laval nozzles for air-to-air missile… more
Abstract:MaxPower has designed and built a prototype primary battery for use in the Rifleman Radio. At the end of the Phase II program, MaxPower delivered six prototype batteries to the U.S. Army for testing. Testing demonstrated that this battery system is able to provide over 15 hours operation at 6.6W… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall aims of Phase I and Phase II of this SBIR project are to develop and refine an interactive DVD and workbook to reduce sexual risk behavior and substance use among urban black youth who are at high risk for contracting HIV by improving… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): According to the NIAID fact sheet on Botulism, the extreme toxicity of botulinum neurotoxins (BoNT) and the ease of production, transport, and delivery make this an agent of extreme bioterrorism concern. Nonetheless, although there are major vaccine… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Although a rapid and accurate diagnosis is crucial to the management of patients suspected of bacterial infection, the currently available radiopharmaceuticals are not capable of distinguishing between sterile inflammation and bacterial infections. Our goal is to… 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.
