Abstract:Texas Research Institute Austin (TRI/Austin) is proposing to build an energy supply system for the Tray Ration Heating System (TRHS) that will eliminate the use of JP-8 fuel as an energy source to heat the rations. There are three operational conditions when the TRHS needs to be supplied with energy… more
Abstract:Marine forces of the future will be significantly more agile, lethal, mobile, and survivable. The current limitation on tactical wheeled vehicles is at the tire/terrain interface. Tactical wheeled vehicles need the ability to adapt to rapidly changing terrain conditions and missions by developing a… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: TRI/Austin and the University of Texas at San Antonio have teamed to develop and demonstrate a complete set of modules and a framework for structural reliability analysis for the Air Force. These modules will be developed with a scriptable interface to enable the structural engineer to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Fuel tanks for aircraft commonly utilize a hexavalent chromated polyurethane coating acting as corrosion protective secondary containment for fuel. The coating service range is from -65 to 250oF. New effective coatings free of hexavalent chromium corrosion inhibitors and offering rapid… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: TRI/Austin proposes to develop an ultrasonic (UT) based non-destructive evaluation (NDE) system that can detect and characterize the tailored surface grain size distribution in aerospace nickel and titanium alloys. Many metals are now engineered via heat treating processes to adjust the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Reliability of weapon systems after periods of storage dormancy has long been a significant concern throughout military history. The trend in missile systems over prior decades has been toward greater sophistication, complexity, and longer periods of dormancy while in transportation and… more
Abstract:To address the Navy"s need for an innovative manufacturing processes and materials to produce a shower stall that is affordable, modular, corrosion resistant, water tight, and can be built with the minimal number of standardized components to reduce the production time and overall life-cycle… more
Abstract:High moisture permeation rates through hose wall materials are a primary failure mode for the design currently used in fat line towed arrays. These premature failures are extremely costly in terms of repair, and the loss of sensors in the towed array impacts submarine mission capability. The high… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Cold working has been used for holes in aircraft structure to extend fatigue life for decades. This procedure can be used as a terminating action or as an inspection interval extension. To have confidence in the process, the Air Force needs an inspection tool that can conclusively… more
Abstract:Austin (TRI/Austin) first developed non-conductive coatings (NCC) for marine connector applications in the mid 1990"s. These coatings are applied by a plasma spray process, and the patented technology has reduced the cost of ownership for the U.S. Navy by reducing down time of submarines for… more
Abstract:Texas Research Institute Austin, Inc. (TRI/Austin) is developing a lithium-ion battery module that will manage individual cell thermal runaways in two ways. The active management path will be to monitor the internal temperature of the cell and remove the cell from the charging/discharging circuit if… more
Abstract:Millimeter and terahertz wave imaging can image objects behind or within other objects. However, current equipment that does this quickly is expensive, and affordable equipment is prohibitively slow. Researchers at Missouri S & T have successfully developed and demonstrated several innovative… more
Abstract:This proposal documents Phase II efforts of Tietronix Software Inc. as it relates to the combination of a multi-platform game with graphic novel elements in support of computer science education. Aegis is a software application that combines the playabili
Abstract:NASA's successful development of next generation space vehicles, habitats, and robotic systems will rely on effective Fault Management Engineering. Our proposed innovation aims at developing a method and associated tool suite to support Model-Based Fault Management Engineering (MBFME) for these… more
Abstract:This STTR Phase I project, Serious Game for Energy Science (SGES), proposes to address the question 'Can a serious game in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), with artificial intelligence and teacher controls, engage the learner, impact student problem-solving abilities, increase… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop and implement interactive Web-based games, apps, and corresponding investigative laboratory modules.

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.
