Abstract:Syntonics proposes to investigate the feasibility of applying its recent invention to create an X-to-Ka band conformal satcom antenna system that is frequency-agile, pointing-agile, polarization-agile, and affordable: the pixel-addressable reconfigurable conformal antenna (PARCA). The PARCA concept… more
Abstract:CycloShield is a new transparent armor material with the highest impact strength of any known polymer. Phase I demonstrated that the ballistic properties of CycloShield are significantly better than polycarbonate. A 40+% advantage in ballistic strength at same thickness, and 300% in a thicker… more
Abstract:Nondestructive measurement of coating thickness is typically done using acoustic or eddy current techniques, but both methods lack the accuracy needed for control of modern paint applications systems. JSF aircraft coatings are applied robotically and controlling thickness is critical to the JSF… more
Abstract:Intumescent coatings can provide passive fire resistance at low cost and weight. These systems however intumesce at relatively low temperature and are not appropriate for certain applications. Specially, aircraft engine nacelle temperatures and the potential for fuel/fluid fed fires require higher… more
Abstract:The proposed effort is to develop a frequency and waveshape agile pulse forming system. The pulse forming system is based on a Blumlein topology and allows a wide range of waveforms to be generated from a fixed set of mechanical hardware.
Abstract:The MATRIX oscillator was developed as a tunable wideband HPM source for use by the AFRL in threat testing. The fundamental physics of hydrogen insulation used in the MATRIX oscillator as well as the overall topology limit the voltage-frequency-Q (VFQ) product of the current system. Through the… more
Abstract:Conventional cargo stowage systems aboard Navy ships employ an inefficient, heavy steel rail diagonal dunnage system that requires costly, time-consuming labor operations for installation and maintenance and extensive use of wood block spacers to properly secure and restrain cargo against the… more
Abstract:There is a need to increase load capacity of joints in Navy ships using fiber reinforced composite sandwich construction. The strength of most joints currently used is limited by the relatively low interlaminar properties of the composite materials being joined. The innovative T-Joints being… more
Abstract:Current methods for conducting non-destructive evaluation (NDE) of U.S. Navy structures require significant time and manpower. Inspections are typically carried out via point-by-point measurement techniques that sometimes require erection of significant scaffolding to access the structure and which… more
Abstract:In order to meet more challenging performance goals for next-generation tactical missile systems, significant improvements in material and structural performance are needed. While recent developments in carbon nanotube (CNT) reinforced composite material technology offer the promise for substantial… more
Abstract:The high manufacturing success rate achieved in the fabrication of glass fabric laminates and sandwich constructions using the Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer molding (VARTM) process has not been duplicated for carbon fabric parts due to the slower, more complex flow processes that occur in carbon… more
Abstract:Filament wound composite structures employed in high performance tactical missile systems are susceptible to catastrophic failure from impact and thermal loading. The use of composite case technology provides some inherent advantages over metallic cases in that the pressure containment capability… more
Abstract:There is a critical need to replace the current honeycomb decking systems in service on Navy ships. Installation of current elevated decking systems is labor intensive and frequent, expensive maintenance is required to repair or replace deck panels that are easily damaged under heavy foot traffic… more
Abstract:The FIRST RF team has demonstrated the feasibility of a system that will provide RPG launch warning and bearing determination during the Phase I SBIR. The system will be mounted on top of a vehicle or installed on fixed sights. The intent is to keep the system simple and affordable to allow… more
Abstract:Current methods of transmitting low-frequency RF energy from airborne platforms involve antennas such as blades that are electrically inefficient and a place a large aerodynamic burden on the airframe.

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.
