ULTEM currently being used to… more
Abstract:The military aviation environment experiences very high noise levels often reaching 150 dB. Hearing protection devices for support and maintenance personnel provide inadequate noise protect. In addition, ground personnel usually lack any means of communication other than human voice (shouting). … more
Abstract:Excera Materials Group, Inc. has developed a novel material for hard ceramic armor strike faces -- ONNEX. This proven material has an unprecedented balance of low specific gravity, high hardness, elastic stiffness, and strength, and has passed Army specifications for lightweight body armor. As a… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant):
We propose to conduct research and development of a new ceramic scintillator based on cerium-activated barium hamate (BaHfO3:-Ce), strontium hafnate (SrHfO3:-Ce), and lutetium hafnate (Lu2Hf2O7:Ce). The development program is prompted by the realization that… more
Abstract:Bladed disk assemblies found in jet engines feature random and intentional variations in blade geometries. These variations result in a phenomenon called mistuning, and are caused by manufacturing tolerances, operational wear, and/or intentional changes in geometry. Mistuning can lead to forced… more
Abstract:Few replacements for hydrazine-based propellants have been developed over the years. One potential candidate is 2-azido-N,N-dimethylethanamine (DMAZ). Unfortunately, DMAZ-IRFNA systems have exhibited ignition delays significantly longer than MMH-IRFNA systems. We are proposing the synthesis and… more
Abstract:American Remote Vision Company (ARVC) will research and develop a novel new type of non-pyrotechnic latch and release system for use in servicing umbilical applications (as well as an enormous range of other aerospace and commercial applications). This device (whose starting point is the ancient… more
Abstract:The current laboratory-based Army Oil Analysis Program (AOAP) demands significant resources to collect samples and perform laboratory analysis, both in terms of soldier effort and operating costs. The Army Materiel Command has directed the Tank Automotive Research and Engineering Center (TARDEC)… more
Abstract:American Technical Coatings, Inc. (ATC) is in a unique position to assist the Navy in developing a new material for lightweight ballistic armor for military aircraft based on the following: (1)ATC has developed a unique, patented technology called Hotblox that is lighter weight than current ceramic… more
Abstract:For reasons primarily related to a lack of a suitable lattice matched substrate and the need to integrate with Si ROIC's, there is a need for delivery of low defect density HgCdTe epilayers on Si. Despite the significant lattice mismatch between Si and HgCdTe several US companies have demonstrated… more
Abstract:Production of low cost, large format HgCdTe LWIR focal plane arrays (FPAs) requires delivery of low defect density HgCdTe epilayers on Si. Despite the significant lattice mismatch between Si and HgCdTe several companies have demonstrated high performance MBE grown MWIR (3-5 microns)-HgCdTe devices… more
Abstract:This STTR Phase I project will establish the feasibility of an innovative manufacturing process to fabricate a range of unique hafnium/silicon based carbide composites and material systems that cannot be processed using conventional techniques. These materials are expected to have a host of unique… more
Abstract:We will develop a Semantic Grid system for provenance creation, management, retrieval and representation that has broad applicability including to Joint Battlespace Infosphere applications. We propose to design and evaluate a metadata management system that can be used specifically to manage linked… 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.
