Abstract:Employment is essential for helping individuals with intellectual disabilities achieve independence, financial security, and self-sufficiency to be active members in the community as well as foster a higher quality of life more generally. However, only 25% of individuals with intellectual… more
Abstract:Landing gear systems are one of the more problematic subsystems on Naval aircraft. Landing gear failure can be caused by hard landings due to actual severe high sink rate with high enough GW to exceed the design strength, but are extremely rare. More common are fatigue and environmentally caused… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force typically requires restoration of corrosion affected aircraft components in hidden and/or hard to access areas. These aircraft structure and components are typically manufactured from aluminum substrates, as well as other alloys like titanium, and low alloy, PH and Cres… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Landing gear platings, such as LHE Zn-Ni and Cd are designed to protect the base material from the environmental effect of field use. Inherent to the electroplating process is the introduction of hydrogen into the high strength steel (HSS) aircraft component, which can cause hydrogen… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: As financial constraints become more pronounced for the DOD, and industry in general, the need for efficiency and elimination of waste becomes ever more important. Factories and repair depots expend tremendous amounts of resources applying high technology coatings to improve the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Currently, the Unites States Air Force (USAF) Landing Gear community is implementing Electrolytic Hard Chrome plate (EHC) replacement for line of sight applications utilizing HVOF technology. The chemical formulations chosen for this application are WC-Co and Tungsten Carbide Cobalt… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: USAF Landing gear are subject to extreme corrosion. Processes are used to extend component life without introducing additional modes of failure. Corrosion can still occur if compromised by wear or damage. A breakthrough processing Diatomaceous Earth (DE) was patented by Oak Ridge… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: When the inner diameter (ID) of a landing gear aluminum alloy outer cylinder is damaged or worn there is very little that can be done to restore the ID of the cylinder. Consequently, the outer cylinder has to be condemned and taken out of service. A coating repair for aluminum alloy… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I effort will demonstrate the feasibility of a fail-safe reusable Forward Closure System (FCS) for use in underwater launch tubes. The proposed FCS will be reusable, fail-safe, scalable, capable of withstanding pressures, and have an opening time… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase I and Phase I Option effort will demonstrate the feasibility of a controllable missile lateral support system that reacts automatically to shock and vibration inputs. The proposed design concept will utilize a smart material to provide automatically controllable shock and vibration… more
Abstract:In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. details the development of a fully integrated laser ultrasound visualization and laser ablation tool for corrosion identification, removal and cleaning. The key innovations of this proposal include the following: a) Hidden corrosion detections based on direct… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Test validation of munition performance, particularly in the endgame environment, requires that enormous quantities of video and other sensor data be collected in proximity to the munition impact or detonation location, and transmitted in some manner back to the ground receiving station,… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: We propose to develop an analysis/tool integration architecture to enable the synergistic exploration and capture of the critical features of the penetration fuze environment found within combined experimental and computational datasets. We will develop a design of the architecture and… more
Abstract:Archangel Systems, Inc. proposes a feasibility study coined Triaxial Accelerometer with Low Offset and Noise (TALON) to meet the accelerometer needs for DoD"s next-generation IMUs in agile missile programs.

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.
