Abstract:The US Navy's new DD(X) destroyer currently under design features amongst its extensive sensor suite an innovative dual (high frequency and mid-frequency) frequency, active bow sonar. One of the primary missions of the high frequency (HF) component of the bow-sonar will be in-stride mine avoidance.… more
Abstract:Localizing low frequency noise sources in shallow water using a horizontal array is complicated by waveguide dispersion and maneuverability constraints. If the dispersive properties of the sound propagation channel are well known, waveguide effects can be used advantageously for the purpose of… more
Abstract:75336-A broad category of experiments in astro-particle and high energy physics requires the construction of ultra-high-purity and ultra-low-radioactive-background, cubic-meter-scale vessels to be used as containers for ionization and scintillation media. Double-beta decay experiments, solar… more
Abstract:Composite aircraft structures can be damaged and require field repair to make operable and safe for flight. Field repairs have typically been accomplished using two-part liquid resin systems or prepreg materials that require cold storage. These current technolgies are limited due to void formation… more
Abstract:In Phase I, a filament winding resin was developed that had a glass transition temperature of 274 C and could be processed at ambient temperature. This resin was characterized using existing filament winding machines at a subcontractor and found to process as well as low thermal performance resins… more
Abstract:The Army desires to have a high temperature matrix for use in filament winding composites that can be easily processed at room temperature and has a minimum glass transition temperature of 260C (500F)when cured. This objective will be accomplished by developing epoxy curing agent technology based on… more
Abstract:Nitrates and associated contaminants in groundwater have increased greatly during the last fifty years as they have in the rest of the world. Nitrate poses a quantitative threat to United States groundwater that is greater than that of other contaminants with greater public attention. Nitrate has a… more
Abstract:The ever increasing volume of the information to be transmitted and processed demands fast communication systems that can fulfill a throughput of 1 Tb/s or even 10 Tb/s. This requires more than 100 times improvement of performance over today?s fiber optic communication systems, and calls for the… more
Abstract:A W-band digital communications transceiver will be developed with 5 GHz instantaneous bandwidth utilizing the 71 - 76 and 81 - 86 GHz frequency spectrum recently allocated by the FCC. This project has both military and commercial applications for SATCOM and Point-to-Point digital communications… more
Abstract:An X-band digital transmit module will be developed that is suitable for phased-array radar and communications applications. This proposed Phase II SBIR will combine our Phase-I X-band transmit module design with a DBF receiver that Applied Radar is developing through separate (non-SBIR) funding… more
Abstract:The use of staring infrared imaging systems provides significant advantages for military missions such as aircraft self-protection. Monitoring of wide areas at low resolution and switching to a narrow field of view to identify and track targets are of interest. Current systems use… 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.
