Abstract:The titanium sheath that currently protects most leading edges of rotary wing aircraft is plagued with several issues associated with the thermal deicing system. Of greatest concern is the overheating damage. An elastomeric boot offers lower weight, flexibility, abrasion-resistance and field… more
Abstract:Vector borne diseases have posed a significant threat to soldier health in past and present foreign deployments. Currently deployed troops face several severe illnesses such as Leishmaniasis and Sand Fly Fever Virus that are transmitted by insects. There are no prophylactic vaccines available for… more
Abstract:Sand ingestion into aircraft engines, including diesel platforms for UAVs, can cause severe erosion of components. This erosive wear reduces engine efficiency and thrust. Repair/replacement of these components is costly, both in terms of mission readiness, and labor and materials cost. Infoscitex… more

Abstract:Accurate orientation and position tracking is difficult to achieve over extended missions and in varying environments, such as ambient electromagnetic (EM) noise and inconsistent access to satellites or reference stations (such as vehicle mounted locators). Manufacturers of orientation and tracking… more
Abstract:DNA aptamers are promising highly-specific, environmentally-stable threat-detecting molecules. Unfortunately, the current method for generating these materials yields a product frought with a high concentration of ballast aptamers. A laborious, yet automated process is required to isolate the… more
Abstract:The Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV) has two aft exhaust ports that interface the heat exchangers to the external environment. An innovative solution is required to address the competing requirements of ballistic protection, airflow performance, and thermal signature. In this Phase II program,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose to develop a novel microfluidic approach that will enable the realization of a truly long-term implantable artificial lung. There have been considerable advances in membrane oxygenation, including our own pre

Abstract:This project proposes to develop a rapid ethnographic assessment tool designed specifically to be used by military personnel participating in Security, Stabilization, Transition, and Reconstruction (SSTR) missions who are untrained in social science research methods. Within the Department of the… more
Abstract:The Lithium-oxygen electrochemical couple has the potential to form the basis of a very high specific energy, rechargeable battery for the very high altitude, very long endurance solar aircraft. Recent progress in the application of non-aqueous electrolytes to realize the benefits of this chemistry… more
Abstract:Rechargeable lithium ion batteries incorporating liquid or polymer electrolytes are currently the most advanced battery type available on the market. However, the liquid/polymer electrolyte and its interface with the electrodes limits energy density, long-term cycle life, and the rate of… 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 this project… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT OF RESEARCH PLAN In response to a National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) request for proposals, Danya International, Inc, (Danya), proposes to continue development and testing of TIES: Training Intervention for the Engagement of Families. Recent consensus reports conclude that the… more
Abstract:Development of an advanced composite bipolar plate is proposed for a unitized regenerative fuel cell and electrolyzer system that operates on pure feed streams (H2/O2 and water, respectively). The composite bipolar plate can greatly simplify "closed-loop" unitized fuel cell/electrolyzer power… more
Abstract:Utilizing high strength polymers with controlled pore dimensions as a support, a customized membrane electrode assembly (MEA) can be generated for NASA's electrolyzer stack that has optimized electrochemical performance with greatly improved mechanical properties enabling high pressure (>1000 psi)… more
Abstract:Water electrolyzer stacks are a key component of regenerative fuel cells, designed to replace batteries as a means of storing electric energy on the lunar surface. The design and demonstration of an innovative water electrolyzer cell is proposed. The cell design will be significantly smaller and… more
Abstract:The idea of a hydrogen-fueled future is positive on many levels (better air quality, increased energy efficiency), but its realization depends critically on finding a non-carbon, or at least renewable, source of hydrogen. Thermochemical cycles, such as the Hybrid Sulfur (HyS) process, have the… more
Abstract:Goleta Star LLC with support from academia, Quinstar and other supporting businesses proposes to develop advanced capability for feature-aided tracking, detection and ID of Moving Targets using SAR. This effort is concerned with single or dual receiver channel SAR data processing to detect, track… more
Abstract:Goleta Star LLC with support from Academia, Quinstar and other supporting businesses proposes to develop a W-Band Circular Electrically Scanned Array (CESA). There are a number of alternative solutions which will be traded off in Phase I. The baseline proposed approach balances front end… more
Abstract:The proposed work addresses the problem of determining whether a given small unmanned ground vehicle (SUGV) can traverse a given terrain, when the state of both the SUGV and the terrain are not known exactly. In Phase I, we developed Monte Carlo-based methods to predict the mobility of the PackBot… 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.
