Abstract:As the complexity of flight controllers grows so does the cost associated with verification and validation (V&V). Current-generation controllers are reaching levels of complexity that push the envelopes of existing V&V approaches, and further increases in controller complexity are required to… more
Abstract:Morphing air vehicles constitute an emerging class of aircraft capable of substantial changes in geometry during flight enabling improved performance characteristics and smaller fleets of versatile vehicles. The proposed effort will develop advanced control technologies for morphing aircraft that… more
Abstract:"Black-box" attacks have the potential to significantly diminish the technological advantage of the U.S. military while requiring relatively modest resources on the part of an adversary. The "black-box" attack is an attempt to understand the functionality of a system from an input-output… more
Abstract:The Shared Reconnaissance Pod (SHARP) provides the U.S. Navy with the latest digital tactical reconnaissance capability. The SHARP can be mounted on multiple airborne platforms and utilizes an electro-optical/infrared sensor system to provide high resolution imagery in support of time sensitive… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Project Summary/Abstract Barron Associates, Inc. proposes to develop a Telephone Monitor for the Elderly (TELEHOME), a low-profile, waist-worn, wireless personal monitor with built-in speakerphone. Functions provided by the TELEHOME system include: (1)… more
Abstract:Barron Associates and Dr. Ping Lu of Iowa State University propose to develop adaptive guidance and trajectory generation algorithms covering ascent, entry, and terminal flight phases for next generation space vehicles. These algorithms will be developed for both onboard implementation and for a… more
Abstract:The increased aircraft safety potential of active flow control using synthetic jets - specifically, using synthetic jets on the leading edge of the wing to delay flow separation - is of critical importance. Delaying flow separation could allow an aircraft to recover from adverse conditions that… more

Abstract:The Modular Software Architecture for Advanced Weather Radars project seeks to develop a modular weather processing software architecture and software blocks, or modules, which can be applied to various commercial and military radar systems. This Phase I effort will identify processing algorithms… more
Abstract:Basic Electronics, Inc. has developed and patented a unique, composite material that provides significant potential for solving thermal problems and weight problems associated with current systems used to dissipate heat. This composite material conducts heat at rates of up to five times greater… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project aims to develop a planar monolithic solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) system fabricated by spray pyrolysis and sintering techniques. In our monolithic SOFC design, the selected cathode, electrolyte, and anode materials are chemically and… more
Abstract:Bay Materials, LLC has developed an innovative generally applicable detection method for the rapid and sensitive detection of biological and/or chemical agents: based on the principle of a micro-electromechanical sensor (MEMS) which responds to proprietary molecular signal-amplifying polymers… more
Abstract:BCL plans to research methods to develop Linguist's Ambiguity Tutor and Rehearsal System (LATARS) that trains US military personnel in a new language along with the subtleties of correct semantics of ambiguous, double meaning, and slang phrases. The overall approach will use COTS language specific… more
Abstract:Although good textbooks on food mycology are available, a clear need exists for simpler and more visual identification systems. Because of ease of manufacture and use, interactive potential and ability to display color pictures, the CD is the ideal medium for such a system. However nothing of this… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will engineer a fully automated, trailer-mounted Supersaturated Dissolved Oxygen Injector (SDOX) and determine the effects of addition of dissolved oxygen (DO) to impaired waterways. Waterways with low dissolved oxygen cannot support… more
Abstract:The Navy has a need for low-cost cameras to be used in disposable UAV's for maritime reconnaissance. B.E. Meyers offers a suite of three cameras, enabling viewing anytime in a 24-hr day, in all sorts of weather conditions. For low-scattering environments, including rain or mist, ultra-sensitive… more
Abstract:The Navy is in need of a compact, passively Q-switched microchip laser, with long pre-use life, for deployment on missile systems. Our solution is a diode-pumped Nd:YVO4 - Cr:YAG microclip laser, constructed as a monolithic laser subassembly contained in a 14-pin butterfly package. The pump diode… more
Abstract:During Phase I, we experimented with several transition approaches and ran into three hurdles: 1) No matter how good the method for transitioning technology, if the development process has not been well-managed, there will be no technology to transition; 2) Transition does not happen without an… 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.
