Abstract:SA Photonics ia pleased to propose a system approach to solving the issues that come with measurement and analysis of Phased array jamming systems. Our system, SPARC (SA Photonics Phased Array Characterization System), includes 4 main elements; The probe sub-system (photonic based signal acquisition… more
Abstract:There is increasing need for arbitrary RF waveforms with very wide instantaneous bandwidths for defense and commercial applications. Standard electronic approaches have limited bandwidth and are sensitive to electromagnetic interference. Photonic approaches are believed to be the solution because… more
Abstract:SA Photonics is pleased to propose the development of a hybrid LIDAR/RADAR receiver. The SA Photonics implementation incorporates a very high gain and low noise photonic detector. SA Photonics will integrate low noise, high dynamic range electronics with the photodetector to provide maximum… more
Abstract:Currently to inspect for fatigue damage around fasteners in multi-layer structures requires either removing the fastener entirely or a perfect sealant layer between the layers for ultrasonic testing. We propose developing a novel inspection system that uses acoustic emission to inspect the… more
Abstract:Lead based solders have been used for decades to make connections in electronic assemblies and has an established reliably record in high performance applications. As industry moves away from the use of lead in electronic assemblies to SAC alloys, the d
Abstract:Reliabilities of lead-free soldered assemblies and surface finishes are different from heritage tin-lead eutectic alloys when used in high-performance or long-lived military and aerospace applications. Single crystal, beta-tin whiskers have erupted spontaneously from surfaces of lead-free soldered… more
Abstract:Explosions from landmines and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) have been used in both Iraq and Afghanistan as the primary methods of the insurgent forces to engage lightly armored tactical vehicles. These explosive devices place our military troops and civilian personnel in constant peril,… more
Abstract:The Physical Scale Model (PSM) has performed a critical role in the characterization and remediation of magnetic signatures in Navy ships. The properly executed PSM permits the accurate sizing and location of degaussing systems. To be of cost benefit, the PSM must be constructed before the final… more
Abstract:Conversion to water washable penetrants and use of dry powder developers shows promise to improve performance while significantly reducing waste streams by elimination of hydrophilic emulsifier and water based developer. These materials also will reduce equipment maintenance costs and costs… more
Abstract:The manual inspection of large composite structures on Navy aircraft such as the KC-130J wing trailing edge requires significant manpower and calendar time. This reduces the availability of assets to the warfighter and increases the life cycle cost of the aircraft. The team of Texas Research… more
Abstract:Two problems affect Navy submarine towed arrays. The first problem is damage imparted to the array components by the handling system. The second problem is the noise generated by hose oscillation and turbulence that develops during submarine turns; the circular cylinder hose experiences a cross flow… more
Abstract:Currently, other than protective clothing there is no viable method for directly shielding dermal tissues from thermal insults. Thermal injuries to unprotected eyes and hands result in diminished full force projection for our troops. TRI/Austin is proposing an innovative protective hypoallergenic… more
Abstract:Texas Research Institute/Austin (TRI/Austin) has teamed with Computational Tools, Wesdyne, and NDE Technologies to propose the development and demonstration of multi-mode inspection concepts that will: reduce the cost of inspection improve the reliability of inspection, and enable faster deployment… more
Abstract:Individual racking of parts during anodization processes is time consuming and inefficient. The objective of this proposed effort is to develop a process that can anodize large number of small parts, fabricated from aluminum alloys, using a non-racking approach while maintaining high surface quality… more
Abstract:There is a requirement for lethal high density sub-projectiles that are affordable. Simple shapes, which are relatively inexpensive, lose lethality because of poor ballistic attributes. Machining these simple shapes to change attributes, in order to enhance their lethality, significantly increases… more
Abstract:Development of ballistic grade fiber beyond aramid has not sufficiently evolved to achieve the performance requirements necessary for future personnel protection needs. New polymer fibers such as Zylon and M5 have shown promise, but long-term aging and difficulties in manufacturing respectively have… more
Abstract:The time and cost to perform a comprehensive probability of detection (POD) study are significant and burdensome to the process of deploying new inspection methods and techniques. The complexity and cost of this effort require the development of model-assisted methods to determine the POD of new… more
Abstract:Soft-sided shelters utilized by the U.S. Army are in need of lightweight, cost-effective, modular, high performance armoring panels to protect personnel within the structure from blast events that could occur in close proximity. During the Phase I effort
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Background: Over the past five years, the University of Connecticut together with its start-up spin-off corporation (Biorasis Inc.) has been developing a totally implantable biosensor platform (0.5 mm x 0.5 mm x 5 mm) c

Abstract:Problem: Small farms have limited poultry and small ruminant processing facility choices in Indiana; while most facilities serving this function utilize standard construction methods, facilities utilizing alternative and renewable energy systems are nonexistent. Question: Can a facility be designed… 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.
