Abstract:The implementation of composites in the aerospace industry has been limited because of the inherent unpredictability of composite structure failures. Typically, very conservative designs are saddled with requirements for fail safe fasteners resulting in heavy and expensive structures. Many recent… more
Abstract:The focus of the program is to complete the concept design of a 1500 hp two cycle opposed piston diesel engine. This concept shall provide a platform for component and material technology implementation and evaluation. The program consists of three major tasks; concept design. modeling and testing… more
Abstract:The primary objective of this SBIR effort is to develop and refine UXO detection, location, and discrimination technologies. The development of such technologies are achieved through systematic research, laboratory and bench scale tests, leading to performance validation based on large pilot scale… more
Abstract:The LCAC Full-Mission Trainer (FMT) is providing a cost-effective tool for training LCAC operators in normal craft operation and casualty mode conditions. However, the FMT was never validated with full-scale LCAC test data. Rather, the feel of the FMT was uning coefficients… more
Abstract:Shipboard electrical casualty faults can produce destructive voltage transients and outages that impair ship capacity for casualty fight through. Recent work on relay algorithms to detect faults and coordinate multiple circuit protection devices (CPDs) has demonstrated high-speed relay algorithms… more
Abstract:State-of-the-art real-time diagnostic systems generally consist of two integrated components: fault detection and fault classification (isolation) systems. Although such systems may be able to recognize failure precursors, they have no mechanism for exploiting diagnostic information for prognostic… more
Abstract:Many modern systems rely on multiple innovative actuators and effectors to improve performance, versatility, and survivability. In systems where several actuators or actuator combinations are capable of affecting the behavior of a single controlled varaible, an opportunity exists to … more
Abstract:American health care is in the midst of momentous change. Quality improvement principles are being used increasingly to enhance productivity and efficiency of health care delivery and to help contain costs. In producing patient outcomes and resource utilization measures, it is vital to control… more
Abstract:Autonomous control of uninhabited air vehicles (UAVs) presents a number of challenges, including detecting failures across the entire flight regime/mission envelope, differentiating between behavioral changes due to failures and those due to uncertainties, real-time control law redesign, and… more
Abstract:Flight test experience shows that for highly-agile controllers, pilots who do not -induced oscillations (PIOs) due to actuator rate limits and other system lags. The problem is further exacerbated in remotely-piloted vehicles where pilots… more
Abstract:BCL proposes developing an Adaptive Personal Assistant (APA) to assist professionals dramatically improve productivity of office automation tasks. The APA will take normal spoken English requests and perform tasks such as electronic mail, meeting coordination, and flight scheduling, and then adapt… more
Abstract:SBIR Technical Topic AF97-241, Robotic Test Probe, addresses the problem of providing reliable access to test points on circuit cards under test. It allows decreased test time, increased reliability and reduced test program development cost. Manual probing is costly to implement, is subject to… more
Abstract:Beam Technology Corporation is prepared to develop an innovative personal Radio frequency Radiation Dosimeter based on concepts originally enunciated by Dr. Johnathan Kiel, The approach will use a technology that promises to be much more versatile than currently available methods of measurement,… more
Abstract:We propose to develop an object-oriented toolbox for modeling, control design and analysis of distributed parameter systems based on PDESolve, our commercially available PDE computing sybstrate. The toolbox will be an open environment containing all the components required a PDE control problem,… more
Abstract:Combustion chemistry has a key role in the design of low emission and high speed propulsion. The knowledge of the chemistry of relevant practical fuels has reached the point where design problems can in principle be addressed from a rigorous scientific perspective. However, the introduction of… more
Abstract:The development of novel compounds that regulate specific subtypes of glutamate receptors for the treatment of CNS disorders is the major goal of Symphony Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Symphony discovered a novel series of heterocyclic 1,2-dihydrophthalazines that selectively antagonize AMPA receptors and… more
Abstract:Adding value to an undervalued forest resource at the local level will benefit the economic, ecological and cultural health or rural forest dependent communities. A large percentage of hardwood is relegated to low value uses by virtue of naturally occurring character (knots, coloration, etc.). Many… 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.
