Abstract:The cost of electricity for small wind turbines is too high, and the installation process is too cumbersome, to achieve the widespread deployment goals of industry stakeholders. Guyed towers, which are traditionally the least expensive to erect, represent one approach to cost savings, but these… more
Abstract:The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of generating realistic ocean-like ground planes for the RCS prediction of small vessels in both shallow and deepwater environments. Although significant progress has been made in furthering the state-of-the-art in electromagnetic… more
Abstract:The proposed Phase II effort will build upon the success of the Phase I work by improving the low temperature hydrogen release characteristics of nanostructured hydride materials, scaling up the synthetic method, constructing a compact hydride-based hydro
Abstract:Small diesel gensets (less than 5 kW) used by the military are often sized for maximum loads, but are run usually run at only partial load. This leads to poor fuel economy, wet-stacking, and the reliability problems associated with it. Aspen Products Group, Inc. proposes to eliminate the problem of… more
Abstract:A flameless JP-8 combustion and heat transfer technology will be developed for use in man-portable field-kitchen appliances. The technology developed is based on diffuse combustion on catalyst-coated heat transfer surfaces, and use of a passive fuel vaporizer. By using the passive vaporizer and… more
Abstract:Oxygen-blown coal gasification and combustion provide promising pathways to highly efficient coal-based energy generation without carbon emissions. However, the processes currently used to generate large-volume oxygen streams tend to be capital and energy intensive, resulting in higher electricity… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of fabricating cost-effective, LNG-compatible, fiber-reinforced aerogel insulation that is mechanically strong while retaining the unique highly insulating properties of aerogels . Perlite and PUF have a number… more
Abstract:The exploration of space requires that new technologies be developed for long-term cryogenic propellant storage applications in-space, on the lunar surface, and on the Earth. The Altair ascent stage requires LO2 and LCH4 storage durations of up to 14 days in LEO and up to an additional 210 days on… more
Abstract:The overall objective of the Phase II project is to develop lightweight reinforced aerogel materials for use as the core structural insulation material in multifunctional thermal protection systems for next generation hypersonic vehicles. During this Phase II SBIR project, we will build on the… more
Abstract:Energy-efficient cryogenic insulation is an imperative requirement for the future of space travel. In order to advance the space program, NASA must find cost effective solutions to store and disperse propellants at cryogenic temperatures. The true cost for an insulation material depends upon the… more
Abstract:Multi-Layer Insulation (MLI) is the most commonly used thermal insulation material for spacecraft applications due to its low thermal conductivity in vacuum. However, MLI has several problems including thermal shorts, is labor intensive to fabricate and install and its performance is negatively… more
Abstract:Aspen Systems proposes to develop a small mobile personal cooling system that can be worn conveniently by individuals with heat-related disabilities. The need for such an assistive technology is significant among this group in the United States, having the potential to impact more than one… more
Abstract:Refrigeration, air conditioning, and other cooling requirements in the buildings, industry, and transportation sectors account for about 10 quads of U.S. primary energy consumption. Since the efficiency of the best Vapor Compression Cycle (VCC) systems may be approaching asymptotic values; the… more
Abstract:AmericaÂ¿s dependence on foreign sources of fuel represents an economic and security threat for the country. Solar concentration power (SCP) production systems offer the opportunity to harness one of the United StatesÂ¿ most under utilized natural resources; sunlight. However, although the… more
Abstract:Thermal Management Technologies (TMT), a newly formed small business with strategic ties to the Space Dynamics Laboratory (SDL) at Utah State University, is proposing to determine the feasibility of fabricating isothermal panels and inter-panel connections that will meet the thermal performance… more

Further, a downfall of the conventional solid-state breaker is that it still must interrupt large fault currents requiring… 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.
