Abstract:As neural networks are scaled up in size and complexity, network communication becomes more and more a central issue in system architecture. This is especially true for neuromorphic analog VLSI implementation that seek to mimic detailed biology in real time and in very high speed digital… more
Abstract:Recent trends in the closure of military installations, requirements for the demilitarization and disposal of energetic materials and munitions, and environmental remediation obligations have produced a corresponding requirement for efficient processes which can detect the presence of energetic or… more
Abstract:The design of vertically firing gun is merely a simplified version of a normal large caliber gun system. The fixed orientation of the weapon simplifies the ammunition feed and loading system as well as eliminating the need for an equilibration The challenges of the current proposed system are… more
Abstract:Continuing efforts to develop useful and safe means of treating unserviceable, damaged or unused munitions and ordnance include the use of Open Burning/Open Detonation (OB?OD) technique. Although OB/OD techniques provide many advantages over other demil/disposal processes, increasing regulatory… more

Improvements over existing scintillators, in light output, gamma ray detection efficiency, and fast decay times for their scintillation light, has been of interest to the nuclear physics, high energy physics, nuclear medicine (especially PET) and… more
Abstract:The present proposal describes a novel version of a pulsed, high power plasma-ion beam generator which can be used for material surface preparation, modification and synthesis. Interactio of the high power, pulsed plasma-ion flow with the material surface provides surface preparation, fast melting… more
Abstract:Investigation of failed composite components requires tress analysis to assess their structural integrity. Currently there exist no general-purpose software packages for composite structural analysis that are accessible to failure investigators who are not experts in these types of analysis. The… more
Abstract:Current utilization of composite materials in air and surface weapons systems and structures is extensive, and the use of these materials can be expected to increase in the future. Weapons effectiveness assessments and the design of protective structures require methodologies to predict the… more
Abstract:This project will analyze and select promising materials and designs to be used in the plumes of tactical solid rocket motors for missile steering and control. The emphasis is on high-performance refractory materials and compatibility of material systems. The control fins experience severe thermal… more
Abstract:This Phase I SBIR will develop a general purpose probabilistic finite element analysis system, ProFEA, that allows designers to perform probabilistic finite element analysis in a graphical environment that is completely familiar and similar to modern deterministic FEA. We have developed an… more
Abstract:Phase I proposes to demonstrate an easy-to-operate, inexpensive room temperature neutron detector based on boron-doped diamond. The detector would produce an immediate signal related to low-level neutron irradiation. The concept exploits the high neutron absorption cross section of B-10, which… more
Abstract:A new thermal protection concept is described and an investigation to determine its feasibility and quantify its performance is proposed. The concept involves placing an array of small cavities in the nose region of a typical hypersonic interceptor (projectile, missile, or submunition). The… more
Abstract:The goal of this program is to develop and implement optimal spectral signature detection techniques which provide automated detection and identification of materials in hyperspectral image sequences. The requirement to detect, identify and discriminate materials is a common theme in many… more
Abstract:We propose to conduct a comprehensive feasiblity and assessment study for relevant Navy canopy ejection simulations using an advanced unstructured grid flow solver. The results of the Phase I study will be sued to guide and enhance the development of acomprehensive interactive canopy ejection… 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.
