Abstract:Atmospheric data collection often requires the simultaneous use of multiple instruments. Currently, different instruments are often packaged separately on the aircraft, with unique fairing/airframe integration for each. This method often requires extensive modifications to the airframe, makes … more
Abstract:The primary objective of the present SBIR proposal is to develop a new design methodology and applying it to demonstrate the feasibility of rendering minimized missile fin hinge moment covering all possible critical flight conditions while satisfying maneuverability requirements by passive or… more
Abstract:Fire creates smoke and dust. Their particles bloke firefighter's view because the particles scatter visible light (wavelength less than 1u). However, fire also creates infrared radiation with wavelength longer than 1u which will not be scattered by smoke and dust. Therefore it can be detected by… more
Abstract:ETSI, Inc. proposes to develop a polymer infusion process which will allow the diesel fuel injector pumps on vehicles and support equipment to achieve a service life equivalent to that expected before the advent of low-sulfur diesel and the use of JP-8 and Jet A kerosene fuels. Polymer infusions,… more
Abstract:The proposed system has the capability of non-destructively inspecting tires Nfrom bead-to-bead in less than 8 minutes. This high throughput capability is Wavailable for tires prior to retreading. The capability of an existing system will be Qexpanded to include the ability to find sidewall… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (adapted from applicant's abstract): Behavior patterns (work habits, coping strategies and physiological responses to stress) have been identified as major factors in premature morbidity and mortality. Of particular interest here is the role of "stress" or exposure to "stressors"… more

Advanced Energy Systems, Inc.
In photovoltaic energy systems, overcharging can be prevented by using a photovoltaic charge controller to regulate current flow from the photovoltaic array to the battery which stores the charge. This… more
Abstract:BFD, Inc. proposes to develop the necessary technology for the in-situ fabrication of near net-shape composite structures comprised of alpha-Al203 and beta-NiAl. Based upon BFD's patented and propriety Co-Continuous Ceramic Composite (C4) technologies, a number of processing routes are proposed… more
Abstract:This proposal describes basic research to study and experiment with physiological and methodological techniques for measuring individual cognitive load. Once developed, these techniques and associated algorithms will facilitate the accurate determinatin of operational cognitive load and overload… more
Abstract:Beginning medical students are taught the early steps in cardiac morphogenesis as a foundation for understanding cardiac development, congenital cardiac pathologies, and the organization of the adult thorax and its viscera. The early morphogenetic events in cardiac development are dependent upon… more
Abstract:The jet vane is located in the aft region of the missile propulsion system nozzle and is used as a Thrust Vector Control device. In order for the jet vane to function properly, it must be designed to survive the thermal and erosive environment of the propulsion system gas stream. An improved jet… more
Abstract:In many engineering applications, the spatial and temporal distribution of a liquid spray is a determining factor in the system performance. In addition, the size of the droplets produced by the atomization process can also play a significant role. As a result, an instrument is highly desirable… more
Abstract:The objective of this research is to demonstrate the feasibility of spray forming aluminum Metal Matrix Composites (MMC) in the solid-state physical form as a light weight structural material. It is anticipated that this innovative manufacturing process will provide opportunities to fabricate… more
Abstract:Gene transfer therapy offers the potential for treatment of a variety of diseases. Naked plasmid DNA has been successfully used for both gene therapy and vaccine development. The mechanism mediating the binding and internalization of plasmid DNA by cells leading to gene expression remains undefined… more
Abstract:A micromachined aerosol collection system for biological warfare (BW) agents will be designed, fabricated, and tested. This device can be coupled with a detection technology for use on the traditional battlefield and in counter-terrorism applications. The aerosol collection system we propose to… more
Abstract:There are many military, commercial, and medical applications for a small, rugged, and inexpensive infrared (IR) spectrometer. A Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) spectrometer would be an ideal tool for such measurements; however, FT-IR spectrometers are very sensitive to vibration and subject to… more
Abstract:Phase I research will demonstrate the feasibility of a new cracked grain monitor that can mount directlyonto a combine to detect breakage in a variety of clean grains while they are being harvested. Whenintegrated into a closed-loop threshing control system, this sensor will greatly improve the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (Adapted from applicant's abstract): This project will test the feasibility of using a new gene transfer device to transfect primary human blood progenitors, in vitro. The genetically modified blood precursor cells will be reintroduced by autologous transfusion and permitted to… 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.
