Abstract:The use of Standing Take-Off Vertical Landing (STOVL) is a key attribute of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). While the LiftFan technology to be used on the JSF will provide significant weight savings, excess weight still exists on the JSF. To alleviate this issue, heavy alloy metals (such as… more
Abstract:Advanced weapons systems such as the B2 Stealth Bomber and the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) rely upon high power density radar systems, and specifically their high power transmitters, which generate high amounts of heat. Heat dissipation from these systems is necessary to prevent equipment damage and… more
Abstract:The current Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) primes including Northrop Grumman and Lockheed are now pursuing weight reduction through the redesign and manufacture of electronics enclosures. To date many approaches have been taken for the redesign of these enclosures including using processes such as hand… more
Abstract:Carnauba wax is a natural product that is used in a variety of applications ranging from food additives to surface protection to explosive matrix.

Abstract:The DOD's Operationally Responsive Space paradigm calls for ambitiously reducing the time required to design, fabricate and deploy a satellite to days or even hours, from the current requirement of months or years. This timeline will require modular satellite structures available on site that… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Splints are a common therapeutic aid used in the rehabilitation of numerous injuries and diseases. Conservative estimates place the number of splints used each year in the multiple millions in the US alone. Often, the splints are custom-made for the patient at a… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Development of a rehabilitation robot to provide therapy to patients with hand function deficits, due to stroke and traumatic brain injury, is proposed. The robot will provide repetitive opening and closing of the digits of the fingers of the hand in a manner… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Development of a bipolar coagulator is proposed for electrosurgical coagulation or cutting of adherent brain tissue that is occluding the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) into the intake holes of an implanted ventricular catheter. Currently, during revision… more
Abstract:Mercury is a toxic, volatile metal that is used in electrical switches, relays and motion detectors because of its electrical conductivity, low volatility and fluid properties over a large temperature range. Mercury is released into the atmosphere during incineration of trash containing these… more
Abstract:United States military personnel are at constant risk of exposure to a vast array of chemical hazards. Acetylcholinesterase inhibiting pesticides (AChEIPs) represent a major subset of this risk. Provisions for force protection against AChEIPs must have sufficient sensitivity to provide the… more
Abstract:This Phase II proposal is to demonstrate a 90Wh Lithium-Nickel cell for High Altitude Airship applications. The cell will target a specific energy of 600Wh/kg, over three times higher than available lithium ion battery technologies. Success of this program will have revolutionary impacts on the… more
Abstract:We propose to develop a high energy density battery for military applications. These batteries will have an energy density of 1,130 Wh/l and a specific energy of 366 Wh/kg, which are much higher than those of rechargeable lithium batteries currently available in the market. They have extremely high… more
Abstract:In order to sustain the supply of natural gas in the long term, dramatic increases in production from deep (>20,000 ft.) reservoirs will be required. Therefore, the drilling industry has a need for electronic devices and power systems, specifically batteries, which can operate at a temperatures… more
Abstract:Maps are an incredibly rich source of information, but the information contained in a map is often locked up in a raster image. Sometimes the original source data used to create the map is available, but more often than not this information has either been lost or is not available. In the proposed… more
Abstract:Devices that employ fuel cell technology (such as vehicles, portable devices, and remote installations) require frequent startup/shutdown cycles. Surviving these cycles, particularly at freezing temperatures, will require the development of cost-effective, high-performance, proton-exchange membrane… more
Abstract:GES proposes to develop the electrochemical alkaline hydrogen peroxide (HP) generator and integrate it with neutralization and evaporation subsystems to form a prototype HP vapor generator for decontamination of enclosed areas. The focus of GES's involvement shall be the advancement of our… more
Abstract:Current electrolyzer systems, needed to produce hydrogen for the hydrogen economy, are too expensive to meet DOE target hydrogen production costs. Because current electrolyzer systems are not mass produced, significant savings could accrue from a disciplined design-for-manufacturing (DFM) approach… more
Abstract:The Joint Strike Fighter Program (JSF) will produce the most sophisticated warfighter in the history of military aviation. JSF is unique as a major weapons system acquisition program in that the economics of system operation, support, and maintenance are being development concurrently with the… more
Abstract:This project consists in developing a Vibrating Powder Handling System for planetary X-Ray Diffraction instruments. The principle of this novel sample handling technique relies on vibrations generated in a sample holder to create movements in the powdered sample. The major benefit over conventional… more
Abstract:To develop a general MLPG approach for bridging the length & time scales and computational frameworks to address multi-scale / multi-physics applications, by integrating multi-scale algorithms, for multifunctional material systems.. The emphasis will be on the broad goal for simulating… more
Abstract:This proposal outlines a solution for the knowledge-based creation of 3D solid model CAD designs. The foundation work for this solution, which was done during Phase I of this SBIR, demonstrated that the part design process can be significantly streamlined by automatically generating 3D CAD models… more
Abstract:KSS recognizes the complexity involved in the ship lifecycle. A significant step in improving this process is to convert implicit knowledge into explicit knowledge as knowledge bases that capture, organize, manage, store, and find knowledge and information so they can be reused and improved… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project will develop a novel DNA-conjugated marker (drag-label) in genetic fragment size analysis using free solution electrophoresis. This method uses no sieving matrix, so the separation occurs in a fundamentally different manner than… more
Abstract:Nickel nanostrands have previously demonstrated their ability to create unsurpassed levels of broadband electromagnetic shielding in a wide range of polymers, being superior in both the level of protection (in dB) and in frequency response range when compared to many other competing technologies,… 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.
