Abstract:The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has identified the need to protect buildings from chemical/biological assaults. Science, Math & Engineering, Inc., proposes to develop innovative, self-regenerating filters that combine filter media and ultraviolet radiation to neutralize and remove both… more
Abstract:The proposed work focuses on an improved armor system based on the use of a new and innovative ceramic/metal composite material (ONNEXT) combined with high performance polymer composite backings. The key element in this study is a unique class of tough ceramic-metal composite materials that contain… more
Abstract:The Phase I effort began with a survey of 42-Volt research and development. All vehicle and top-tier component manufacturers recognize the numerous benefits of 42-Volt electrical systems for improved performance, fuel efficiency, packaging, and emissions. However, it was quickly determined that… more
Abstract:ASTI proposes to identify and evaluate the most promising new oil condition measurement techniques and develop sensor device concepts that can be used in point of use on-board and/or hand-held oil condition analyzers. ASTI now believes the best options for new oil condition sensors are mid-infrared… more
Abstract:Since the Vietnam War, military forces of the United States have had to contend with a highly effective and lethal weapon originally developed by the Russians as a shoulder-mounted rocket propelled grenade designated the RPG-7. The weapon was licensed for manufacture to allies and clients of the… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will have a novel approach for the rapid fabrication of low-cost and net-shape, silicon carbide components with specifically tailored multifunctional properties. These materials will be produced by microwave-induced pyrolysis of an… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Rapid and widespread emergence of antibiotics-resistant pathogens creates an urgent need for concerted approaches towards novel antiinfectives. The long-term objective of this proposal is the development of novel potent antibacterials that target the ribosomal… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Victims of bacterial bioterrorism agents such as anthrax, plague, and tularemia die very often because of septicemia and subsequent multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS). Viral bioterrorism agents such as smallpox can also induce Systemic Inflammatory… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project explores the development of a catalytically active filtration device for the reduction of particulates and carbon monoxide in reformate or syngas. It is generally recognized that significant improvements in the performance of water gas… more
Abstract:The U.S. Army has the need for small and efficient fuel cell power generation systems (0.5-2 kW) that can operate on diesel and logistics fuels. The advantages of employing these fuels for "in-the-field" power generation in military deployment include high energy density and wide availability. … more
Abstract:The US Air Force seeks to developg new materials and technologies to reduce the cost of space flight. The IHPRPT program has the stated mission of doubling rocket propulsion capabilities by the year 2010. Incremental system design and fabrication cost improvements will not be sufficient to achieve… 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.
