Abstract:Platelets play a central role in hemostasis and are responsible for many inherited and acquired bleeding disorders and thrombic events in human beings. A significant portion of post-trauma deaths are related to coagulopathy or hemorrhage events for both injured soldiers and civilian patients. … more
Abstract:Burn injuries constitute 5-20% of combat casualties during conventional warfare. Nonviable tissue within the burn predisposes it to microbial colonization and subsequent infection. The goal of burn care, especially at early echelons, is to control infection until the injury either spontaneously… more
Abstract:Our warfighters are at great risk of large area burn wounds inflicted by incendiary devices during combat operations. These casualties display high fatality incidences as the wounds are highly prone to infection, further deterioration and shock during transport to higher echelon levels of military… more
Abstract:Currently, the United States Military encounters many scenarios where soldiers must enter hazardous areas, while maintaining isolation from contaminants such as chemical and biological agents as well as hazardous material exposure. This requires that the soldiers"respiratory tract be isolated… more
Abstract:Using its Phase I program results, M4 Engineering, Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories will continue to create a unique bonded joint analysis methodology and associated software. Surrogate traction-separation models will be created that efficiently capture the behavior that occurs for real bonded… more
Abstract:This proposed Phase I SBIR program with the US Army will focus on demonstrating ultra-low dark current in flexible, high-efficiency photovoltaic cells with nano-enhanced absorbers. By extending infrared absorption, power conversion efficiencies in single-junction, nano-enhanced solar cells can… more
Abstract:For aircraft thermal management systems, the air cycle system is powered by an air cycle machine (ACM). The ACM typically consists of a power turbine that utilizes high pressure bleed air, along with a cooling turbine to produce the necessary shaft power for a compressor and starter/generator. To… more
Abstract:The United States Marine Corps is seeking a method to reliably monitor a tactical vehicle"s weight and center of gravity (W & CG), real-time, using an integrated on-board system. Such a W & CG mapping system would increase vehicle state awareness providing for optimal performance and… more
Abstract:Reduction of fuel consumption at forward deployed sites has the potential to greatly improve the safety of our Marines. The burdened cost of fuel to the battlespace in both lives and dollars has grown to a level that demands innovation to reduce fuel consumption and improve efficiency. The Tray… more
Abstract:Mainstream Engineering proposes a method for the synthesis of ultra-long carbon nanotubes using an altered chemical vapor deposition process. Many CNT based technologies have diminished properties due to a density of CNT-CNT junctions. Current CNT production techniques are limited in either CNT… more
Abstract:Military Environmental Control Units (ECUs) are one of the greatest consumers of electric energy in forward operating bases (FOBs). Microchannel condensers have replaced tube-fin coils in both military ECUs and commercial air conditioners to improve system efficiency. Flow into the condenser is… more
Abstract:This proposal presents an hourly thermal load analysis for shelters cooled by 9,000 and 18,000 Btu/hr environmental control units (ECUs). This model suggests a highly variable heat load throughout a standard hot-dry day that can vary by a factor of 20 from the lowest to highest thermal load. This… more
Abstract:Mainstream Engineering will use state-of-the-art technology and manufacturing processes to develop an innovative, high speed, lightweight fuel injection system capable of providing multiple injections per engine cycle at engine speeds up to 6000 RPM. To overcome the barriers associated with spark… more
Abstract:This proposal outlines Mainstream"s successful Phase I feasibility demonstration related to the fabrication of hierarchical hybrid nanomaterials for oxygen storage vessels. These vessels exceed the volumetric and gravimetric storage capacity of an oxygen cylinder by 245% and 170%, respectively.… more
Abstract:Mainstream has developed an active cooling system that can provide a cool/dry environment to workers in enclosed protective clothing/equipment. The technology is lightweight, comparable to a small backpack in size, and will improve working conditions so that heat stress is no longer a concern for… more
Abstract:Tyco Electronics Connectivity Defense and Aerospace (TE) is a leading supplier of mil-spec fiber optic (FO) connectors used in ship"s wiring plants, In a Navy SBIR, our company, Management Sciences, Inc. (MSI) worked with TE and developed a portable automated test equipment (ATE) for fast and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Air Force is facing severe budget cuts which force the need to cut operating costs of aircraft and manpower. One way to do this is to increase reliability of systems and components which would reduce maintenance and increase operational availability, which reduces the number of… more
Abstract:Presently the performance of the AQS-20 is degraded when towed from a Fleet Class USV due to surge motion fluctuations. The ability to decouple the surge fluctuations between the USV and the towed body will enable the USV platform to achieve acceptable mine hunting system performance. This proposal… more
Abstract:This Phase I SBIR OSD project proposes the development and testing of a porous metal anode-supported intermediate-temperature solid oxide fuel cell (PMS-IT-SOFC) that exhibits high electrochemical efficiency, high degree of fuel utilization (reformed JP-8, diesel, or dodecane), and low operating… 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.
