Abstract:The energy from the sun is the overall engine that drives our climate. Widespread concern over thedepletion of the stratospheric ozone layer, and the effect that this may have on UV-B irradiance levelsat the surface of the Earth, has highlighted the need for improved technology for precisely… more
Abstract:This proposal is for the design and development of an auxiliary body heating system to be worn by soldiers operating in extremely cold environments. The design is based on circulating a fluid through a garment. Power for the pump is provided by a thermoelectric generator which simultaneously acts… more
Abstract:A self-powered, rapid inflation system for high pressure air beam structures will be developed using staged pressure pulse combustion. The concept builds on existing commercial experience with pulse combustion. This pulse combustion air compressor will involve the use of a lightweight tube in… more
Abstract:Those battery systems that are currently readily available (lead-acid and nickel-cadmium), as well as those that are only now becoming a vailable in limited sizes and capacities (nickel-metal hydride and lithium-ion), can provide ample power for most portable equipment applications but the energy… more
Abstract:Yardney Technical Products proposes to develop low cost, long life, safe and environmentally benign lithium-ion batteries ideal for applications sensitive to operational and disposal costs as well as safety andperformance criteria. Phase I of the proposed project will focus on the selection and… more
Abstract:Yardney Technical Products proposes to develop low cost, long life, safe and environmentally benign lithium-ion batteries ideal for dual use applications. Phase I of the project will focus on the development of improved battery materials. Novel lithium manganese oxide spinel materials will be… more

Mr. John R. Woodward, Principal Investigator
Mr. Leon R. Erdman,… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will advance a novel anaerobic bioprocess forliberating precious metals from metal-sulfide ores. As near-surface, oxidized ore reserves are depleted,gold producers are increasingly faced with the challenge of extracting gold and other metal… more
Abstract:The application covers a program of product and process improvements for a small scale woolenmill located in Woodland, CA. These improvements will be supported in their commercialapplication by a concurrent program of West Coast market research.The research team plans to create a standardized set… more
Abstract:The performance of Zaromb Research Corp.'s proprietary portable high-throughput liquid-absorption air sampler (PHTLAAS] will be upgraded so as to yield a collection efficiency of at least 30% for micron-size microorganisms at a sampling rate of at least 350 1/min of air and a power consumption of… more
Abstract:ZC&H Dynamic Systems, Inc. proposes the development of algorithms for real-time kinematic GPS-based guidance of tactical munitions. These algorithms rest on the wide-lane approach and the continuous carrier smoothing approach developed by Mr. Ron Hatch will act as principal scientist on this… more
Abstract:ZC&H Dynamic Systems, Inc. proposes the development of an intelligent system for generating scenarios that will support strategic planning and policy analysis. The proposed system will be a tool-kit that will provide methods for modeling and reasoning about nonlinear effects in both warfare and… more
Abstract:Several innovative beamformer approaches are presented for use in a new GPS anti-jam design that provides high performance from a small aperture (FRPA) size footprint. The performance includes not only adaptive nulling of jammers, but also directive gain by main beam steering toward GPS satellites… more
Abstract:Cosite interference mitigation approaches are described for use on the AAVC7A1 amphibious combat vehicle to allow simultaneous operation of its C3 and navigation radios at HF, VHF, UHF, and L-band. An optimum cosite interference mitigation system architecture design is proposed which combines… more
Abstract:This proposal addresses the approach to developing a cosite EMI mitigation plan and to designing a cosite EMI mitigation system for multiradio, multifunction communications nodes, operating at HF through SHF. Applicable technologies and operating protocols are reviewed. A sequence of tasks to… more
Abstract:Broodshrimp are given natural (wild-capture) foods for maintenance and maturation. This practice causes problems with production schedules and diseases, limits management options, and raises production costs. Conventional feed processing can degrade high quality ingredients-essential nutrients and… 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.
