Abstract:Shock secondary to acute blood loss remains the number one cause of death for our soldiers. Furthermore, heat shock and dehydration remain a common cause of cardiovascular collapse for our military personnel, especially as operations move increasingly into desert combat. The main objective of this… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant):
Traumatic injury remains the number one cause of death for Americans between 1 and 44 years of age. The economic consequences of trauma related injuries are estimated at over 44 billion dollars in direct costs and over 400 billion dollars per year in… more
Abstract:Determination of a machine's condition while in operation is the most economical type of maintenance to employ. Using predictive maintenance, the overall machinery condition at any time is known, and accurate downtime planning is possible. Predictive maintenance utilizes many different sensing… more
Abstract:HPSSN is, a high performance shipboard network which will address the need for both wireless and wired connectivity in a secure manner. The Components of the HPSSN developed for such a network are applicable not only to the special case of a shipboard environment, but the components of such a system… more
Abstract:With the advent of miniaturized electronics in airplane avionics and digital cockpits, the type and amount of data that can be recorded during an aircraft flight has increased dramatically. Data could include basic flight data, "weapon system" data (such as radar performance), or aircraft health… more
Abstract:With the advancements and proliferation of wireless voice and data communications, there is a logical extension of these technologies to machinery monitoring and control systems. Typically, data communications occur over twisted pairs or fiber optic media. In a highly automated ship for reduced… more
Abstract:The frequency band centered around 60 GHz is characterized by an increased level of attenuation caused by the absorption of millimeter waves by the oxygen in the atmosphere. This unique property makes 60 GHz an ideal frequency for designing highly secure networks for use on-board Navy ships. For… more
Abstract:The intent of this proposal is twofold: first we will provide the instrumentation and data necessary to quantify the polarization requirements of future passive multi or hyper spectral systems utilized for high altitude ASW missions. Second, we suggest a way of passively detecting submarines from… more
Abstract:Advanced Computation and Engineering Services proposes to develop new and innovative modeling concepts to more accurately define and predict the failure modes of various fabric materials from current and futuristic ballistic impacts, working closely with North Carolina State University and… more
Abstract:Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. proposes to develop a hybrid cooling loop technology for space thermal control. The proposed technology combines the high heat flux performance of active cooling loops with the effective fluid management of passive cooling devices. The result is a simple, robust… more
Abstract:78365 Free-surface, flowing, liquid-metal cooling systems are an option for the removal of heat from energy-producing fusion devices. However, these free flowing liquid films are difficult to direct and contain because of their interactions with the high energy plasma and the powerful magnetic… more
Abstract:A number of trends are coming together in the next generation combat systems and tactical vehicles, which will greatly increase the heat loads that must be managed within the vehicle while also increasing the number of heat sources and dispersing these sources over most of the vehicle volume.… more
Abstract:Current manned spacecraft heat rejection systems use two heat exchangers and an intermediate fluid loop to provide isolation between the crew compartment air and the exterior fluid loop. Isolation is required because the fluids used are either toxic or can cause suffocation. The extra hardware… more
Abstract:The subject of this proposal is a heat exchanger based on variable conductance heat pipes (VCHP) that will provide a passive, valve-less means of regulating process gas temperatures in reformers for fuel cells. A key component of the Navy fuel cell system is the reformer, which converts diesel fuel… more
Abstract:Monitors that are currently used to periodically record bottom water temperatures cannot be read by the lobstermen who use them. In addition, current monitors make no provision for recording changes in depth if they are redeployed in a different location. The specific aim of this proposal is to… more

We propose to develop large format… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop a new class of mechanical shaft seals based on the benefits of a novel material called Ultrananocrystalline (tm) diamond (UNCDtm) that will result in seals that last longer, save energy and reduce environmental emissions… 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.
