Abstract:Tactical military wireless networks present unique challenges. They must provide the capabilities of commercially available wireless networks-under radically different conditions. Nodes are very mobile and network topologies change often. Military networks cannot use commercially available… more
Abstract:Upgrading a service in a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) can be costly and inefficient. ATC-NY, together with Architecture Technology Corporation, will develop WIRE (Web service Interface Revision Environment), a framework and toolset to efficiently manage version problems in a large distributed… more
Abstract:Modern defense strategy and execution is increasingly net-centric and distributed, allowing for new information flows that cross system, domain, and community of interest boundaries. But these new data flows introduce security risks as sensitive information passes outside of the domain where it was… more
Abstract:Bio-ethanol penetration into the marketplace is limited by its cost, making it non-competitive with petroleum-based fuels. Energy consumed during fermentation and distillation steps accounts for 17% of the total cost. Because fermentation is exothermic, the reactor must be cooled to preserve… more
Abstract:DHS is committed to strengthening interest in science and technology (SandT) studies and career choices, and in elevating SandT understanding within various populations. One of the expected learning facilitators is a wealth of contemporary scientific information and discoveries emanating from DHS… more
Abstract:The "smart dust" micro-radio concept developed by DARPA provides an outstanding demonstration of the potential of distributed micro-sensor networks connected by low-power radio frequency (RF) data links in a self-organizing network. Distributed micro-sensor and control networks are poised to become… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This SBIR Phase I project defines and implements a new class of technology-enabled science and environmental health science (EHS) 9-12 teacher support. The proposed innovation is called Teachers iPod or TiP. The goals o
f TiP are to: (1) prepare teachers to be… more
Abstract:Athena Technologies Incorporated (Athena) proposes to demonstrate a watercraft recovery control system to control, monitor and manage the recovery sequence of watercraft aboard small surface combatants. The solution leverages Athena's capabilities in vision-augmented estimation, control and path… more
Abstract:Aluminum alloys are known to suffer from Stress Corrosion Cracking(SCC). SCC of high strength alloys can proceed rapidly, and can lead to devastating structural failures. However, a solid understanding of combined interactions of metallurgical, environmental and mechanical factors surrounding the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Many human diseases have been traced back to single genetic mutations in the genome that are causative for the disorder, such as Lesch-Nyhan Syndrome, Cystic Fibrosis, Tay-Sachs disease and Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
The goal of this proposal is to proof the… more
Abstract:Connecting deep submergence systems (submarines) in the field can be a dangerous and difficult task. The rigid piping systems used today have little flexibility to accommodate for variations in connection points and differences in tolerances between vessels. Atkins & Pearce, a 200 year old… more
Abstract:Discrete Event Simulation (DES) can help U.S. shipyards reduce cost and schedule risks. A major barrier to employing DES in shipyards is the overwhelming task of modeling production facilities and work content. Another obstacle is large data volumes generated for shipbuilding can seriously degrade… more
Abstract:Various planned NASA missions require thermal switches for active thermal control. As an example cryocoolers, including redundant coolers are incorporated on select missions. The redundant coolers operate when deteriorating or defunct coolers are deactivated. However, integration of redundant… more
Abstract:Future NASA missions require thermal control systems that can accommodate large changes in ambient temperature. The two essential aspects of an effective thermal interface material (TIM) are high compliance and high thermal conductivity. Thermal interface materials (TIM) are often used to fill the… more
Abstract:Many critically important biological processes ¿ such as oxygen production during photosynthesis, nitrogen fixation, biogenic hydrogen production, and the evolution of the bioavailability of heavy metal contaminants ¿ are associated with changes in the oxidation state of metal ions. The most… more
Abstract:As the Air Force moves toward the deployment of many smaller satellites, it would be useful to develop smaller versions of SSUSI and GUVI imagers to take advantage of these multiple platforms, so that global measurements could become an operational reality. The goal of Phase II shall be to develop… more
Abstract:Almost all of America¿s energy needs are supplied by the combustion of fossil fuels, and a great amount of anthropogenic CO2 is a byproduct of this process. Instrumentation is needed to (1) better track the CO2 as it is processed by the global carbon cycle and (2) improve the prediction of the… more
Abstract:We propose to build and evaluate NDIR Analyzers that can be used to observe Eddy Covariance Flux and Absolute Dry Mole Fraction of CO2 from stationary and airborne platforms for a great range of environments. Both open- and close-path analyzers are to be evaluated. Phase I succeeded in building a… more
Abstract:Almost all of America¿s energy needs are supplied by the combustion of fossil fuels. Unfortunately, a byproduct of this combustion is CO2, the primary greenhouse gas. In order to track this greenhouse gas as it is processed by the carbon cycle, this project will complete the development of the Eddy… 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.
