Abstract:During Phase I CFDRC defined the performance and a roadmap for reduced operational costs of existing and new launch platforms using a Bi-propellant Air-Turbo-Rocket (BATR) as first stage propulsion. Specific applications include the Orbital Sciences Pegasus launch vehicle and an innovative Nano… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Optical imaging as a noninvasive diagnosis technique is a highly promising tool for real-time, in-vivo detection of tumor margins during breast-conserving surgery. This can decrease false-negative diagnoses and local re

Abstract:All NASA exploration systems operate in the extreme environments of space and require reliable electronics capable of handling a wide temperature range (-180ýýC to +130ýýC) and high radiation levels. To design low-temperature radiation-hardened (rad-hard) electronics and predict circuit and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): One of the main challenges in the discovery of intracellular biomarkers and identification of therapeutic targets is the lack of a mechanistic understanding of the complex underlying pathways. The tremendous increase in
both the quantity and diversity of… more
Abstract:DOE¿s FutureGen Initiative involves the development and demonstration of fuel-flexible gas turbine combustors that burn fuels with high hydrogen concentrations (e.g. syngas or pure hydrogen). Combustion goals include high efficiency and low emissions (NOx < 2 ppmv). Advanced Large Eddy Simulation… more
Abstract:Heat loads due to on-board power, combined with hot environments imposed on military ground vehicles, have resulted in situations where vehicle performance is limited by thermal management issues. To counteract this, the cooling system must be optimized, preferably early in the design process.… more
Abstract:Optical Physics Company is proposing a three axis interferometer instrument which measures the one dimensional linear translation and the two-dimensional angular deflection in pitch and yaw of a 7 mm mirror 18-23 cm away. The design is simple and compact, fitting within a 5x5x7.5 cm volume. An… more
Abstract:For applications like tactical laser weapons which involve imaging or transmitting energy via lasers over long paths near the ground, the cumulative atmospheric turbulence effects exceed what conventional adaptive optics technologies can handle. To compensate for moderate to severe deep turbulence… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase II project will manufacture and test under high power laser loading a full-scale DM matched to ABL requirements. This TRL 6 prototype will be 30 cm in diameter with 1.875 cm spaced actuators - identical to the current ABL DM. However, the new DM has 14 microns stroke compared to 8… more
Abstract:Optical Physics Company is proposing to implement and demonstrate its novel tunable spectral sifting (TSS) filter design to enhance the capabilities of space sensors for the Space Tracking and Surveillance System Follow-On (STSS F/O) program. During the Phase I effort, a single stage of the TSS… more
Abstract:A navigational sensor system that can maintain an accurate position estimate without relying upon systems such as GPS, Galileo or Glonass is needed for a variety of military applications. Optical Physics Company is proposing to investigate a novel passive optical approach to build a modern day… more
Abstract:Optical Physics Company (OPC) completed the Phase I investigation of the Interferometric Star Tracker technology. The feasibility to meet 0.11 arc-second (3 sigma) accuracy at 2 Hz with a 20x20 degree field of view has been demonstrated. Analysis and simulation studies confirm that the design… more
Abstract:Optical Physics Company demonstrated the feasibility of a novel low complexity and low component count HEL Beam Control Architecture during the Phase I study. This SBIR Phase II project will demonstrate the full closed-loop operation of the BILL-Less control system, both in the lab and in… 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.
