Abstract:Of significant interest to the Navy are low coefficient of friction gear coatings. Certain military platforms have a run dry requirement that covet survivability of gear coatings in lubrication-starved environments. Current material systems (e.g. black oxide coatings) do not meet the… more
Abstract:Every year the Computer Security Institute and the Federal Bureau of Investigation survey a group of approximately 500 U.S. companies about financial losses due to security breaches. The 2002 data shows an increase in reported financial losses of 21 percent, or $455.8 million. That figure is… more
Abstract:The objective of the program is to demonstrate through resin synthesis and system formulation a fast curing, zero volatile organic compound (VOC) non-skid coating system that meets the fabrication, assembly and performance requirements for ships. Luna Innovations, Inc. will develop a novel VOC… more
Abstract:The Army spends an estimated $2 billion to $2.5 billion per year addressing corrosion-related issues with Army ground vehicles. Corrosion also has a significant impact on force readiness. Army ground vehicles that require corrosion-related repairs are typically out of service for many months. … more
Abstract:Luna Innovations proposes to develop a distributed fiber-optic shape sensor to provide a control system for the deployment of ultra-lightweight inflatable support structures for solar sails. This shape sensing system will provide the full-field 3D shape of the lightweight inflatable booms of solar… more
Abstract:Luna Innovations will develop a deck covering that provides crew protection and damage mitigation by containing brittle fragments from failure of interior decking in the event of explosive casualty. The objective of the program is to demonstrate through resin synthesis and system formulation a zero… more
Abstract:Luna Innovations will be developing lightweight, flame retardant composite inclined ladders for use aboard naval vessels. The proposed program involves 1) designing composite based ladders meeting Navy specifications for shipboard use, 2) producing environmentally sound flame retardant, fiber… more
Abstract:As part of the DDX and future Navy automated ship requirements, systems that were once controlled manually must now be controlled automatically or remotely. Control of mechanical systems requires feedback from sensors located at the device. Luna proposes to develop a multi-purpose sensor module… more
Abstract:With current events and the focus on homeland defense, there has been much interest in rendering materials biocidal. This Phase II effort will build on the feasibility demonstration of Phase I where Luna covalently bound biocidal molecules to a commercially available textile sample, and tested the… more
Abstract:Hemorrhage, infection, and infection-induced sepsis are leading causes of death after trauma on the battlefield and in the civilian community. Both problems are being exacerbated by the increasing frequency of rapid deployment and intense conflict followed by delayed troop evacuation times. Most… more
Abstract:Luna Innovations is investigating an ultrasonic/acoustic detection system for concealed weapons and explosives for the Department of Justice. Using ultrasonic beams to achieve a focal spot on the target, this device generates acoustics to probe under clothing. Acoustics, derived from nonlinear… more
Abstract:There is a strong desire within the U.S. Navy to instrument ships with distributed wireless sensors. A significant challenge in this endeavor is supplying power to the sensors. A requirement to regularly change batteries reduces the advantage of the wireless sensors. Luna proposes to solve this… more
Abstract:This project will provide a low power wireless/wired means for sensors to be accurately synchronized giving sensors the means to operate as a collective, thus improving their power and capabilities. This will be done utilizing open architectures to the fullest extent possible.
Abstract:Integrated circuits (ICs), application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), and systems-on-chip (SoCs) are used in a wide spectrum of vital DOD equipment. The vast majority of these chips are manufactured overseas at untrusted locations. While a chip design… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant):

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.
