Abstract:High-field (~5 T) bent-dipole (0.7 m radius) magnets are required as part of a 180-degree-bend beam-transport region in the high radiation areas of a planned Rare Isotope Accelerator (RIA). The requirements for these magnets can be met by using a novel coil design called the double-helix dipole… more
Abstract:Higher Field Magnets, used in high energy physics (HEP) research, demand higher field materials such as Bi2212 round superconducting wire. The Bi2212 wire-manufacturing process depends on the coil-fabrication method and wire-insulation material. For example, the wind-and-react method requires the… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of a two-phase controllable flow in microchannels. The fluid consists of a carrier fluid, nano-magnetic particles, and additives. The proposed work will also produce low-cost, nano-magnetic particles… more
Abstract:Processing of vegetable oils is complicated by the need to remove free fatty acids. Washing with caustic is a viable process but is inefficient because fatty acids and caustic form soaps which cause emulsions. These emulsions cause a yield loss of 1-1.5% or 160-240 Million lb/yr of soybean oil alone… more
Abstract:Advanced Materials & Processes (AMP) has identified a viable approach for applying Class B or C sealants that will meet quality criteria for thickness, porosity, continuity, and application time. The project will develop a rapid dispensing process for consistent application of the minimum weight of… more
Abstract:The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of producing exchange-coupled magnets with a mixture of Sm2Fe17Nx and alpha double prime-iron nitride powders as starting materials. Advanced Materials Corporation (AMC), together with Georgia Institute of Technology propose to produce… more
Abstract:This proposal presents a Phase I SBIR project to develop a high precision, low disperse rate powder disseminator for the US Army. In the development of the sensitive detecting agent, we need to release a precise amount of C&B agents in the controlled detection experiments. However, such a… more
Abstract:In composites, not only can properties vary with load direction, fiber based composites also offer the unique ability to tailor material properties locally. Localized matrix or fiber architecture changes can meet local mechanical, electrical, or thermal loads within a component or vehicle, without… more
Abstract:During Phase I, 3TEX designed universal, one-piece, 3D woven fiber preforms which can be used as either a "Butt" (H) joint or as a "P" joint as needed. Composite joints were fabricated and tested, demonstrating the benefit of the integral nature of the 3D preforms. 3D stress/strain and crack… more
Abstract:Strength and durability of commonly used bonded and bolted composite-to-composite and composite-to-metal structural joints suffer from sharp geometry variations, mismatch of elastic moduli, Poisson's ratios, coefficients of thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of the adherends, altogether… more
Abstract:Military helicopters rotors contend with rain, ice, sand, and flying debris. To prevent damage to the expensive blade protective sheaths or coatings are applied to the leading edge of the rotor blades. A 3-D woven composite sheath with high thermal conductivity fibers running through the thickness… more
Abstract:Miller Fasteners made from 2-D laminates represent the state of the art in joining CMC panels to metal frames. Despite its success, the extant Miller fastener design is limited by its construction from a laminate of 2-D fabric. The resultant fastener part has poor interlaminar shear strength, and… more
Abstract:A clear need exists for the next generation of Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC) for Thermal Protection Systems (TPS), propulsion hardware, and other high temperature applications. No "off-the-shelf" materials and/or processes capable of meeting NASA's goals are available, yet completely… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A wireless wearable system is proposed to assess adherence to study protocols for complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) mind-body interventions. This system will utilize recently developed silicon micro machined sensors for measuring the gravity vector… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project will develop a digital wireless transceiver integrated circuit (IC) and antenna for a companion microphone system that can be packaged in an in-the-ear (ITE) hearing aid. The use of companion microphones has been shown to improve perception of a… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): AME proposes to develop and test a multi-channel digital wireless headstage that weighs less than 4 grams for use in small animal neurological studies including mice. Current wireless headstages are too heavy for mice. The proposed headstage will advance the… 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.
