Abstract:The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project, if successful, could facilitate significant energy and cost savings for olefin manufacturing facilities. In the US, ethylene and propylene are the most commonly produced light olefins with annual… more
Abstract:We utilize a very small single chip communication device connected to a micro controller and a GPS receiver to create a network of rugged,
inexpensive, very small pole mounted devices. These devices or "nodes" can determine and report which phase line is disconnected and also which end
of the lines… more
Abstract:Our approach utilizes a mature, portable inflatable beam shelter to house modified commercial car wash equipment operated by an automated control
system. The inflatable beam shelters are currently deployed with the US Military and are commonly used as decontamination shelters for military
Abstract:We propose to develop a space based radiation hardened GPS transmit antenna capable of forming spot beams to enhance the GPS signal on the ground by greater than 5 dB. It is expected that our transverse compound hybrid antenna will provide as much as 30 dB gain over a hemispherical antenna allowing… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This effort will evaluate radiation hardened cache memory architectures with respect to future device parameter requirements; identify potential Air Force PNT systems, DoD, and commercial aerospace application requirements; select a suitable RH cache architecture to meet anticipated… more
Abstract:The proposed project aims to develop a multi-channel analog to digital converter (ADC) required for a fluxgate magnetometer (EPD) employed on NASA's planetary exploration missions. The ADC has to feature very high resolution, radiation hardness (tolerance to SEE and TID), low power consumption… more
Abstract:The NASA's PATH mission employs a synthetic aperture radiometer that produces 768 IF (10MHz - 500MHz) signals. Digitizing the signals results in 1.536Tb/s (1GS/s, 2-bit) data stream. Within the NASA's SBIR contracts NNX12CE50P and NNX13CP01C, Pacific Microchip Corp. has developed a low… more
Abstract:Flight-critical systems rely on an ever increasing amount of software?the Boe- ing 777 contains over 2 million lines of code. Most of this code is written in the C programming language. We need a scalable static formal program verification tool that is able to prove the functional correctness of… more
Abstract:C-CAT continues to successfully make complex large scale assemblies for hypersonic aerospace vehicles based on decades of Carbon-Carbon (C-C) fabrication experience. Current and future vehicle designs continually push the limits of C-C material capabiliti
Abstract:With the advent of improved body armor and vehicles and the enemy"s use of the improved explosion device (IED) in the most recent conflicts, blast injuries and related burns to the face have become more and more common among our Wounded Warriors. Pathological scarring, which often results in… more
Abstract:No currently available burn product has shown efficacy in substantially decreasing wound healing time and preventing scar formation.

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.
