Abstract:Future instruments and platforms for NASA space applications will require increasingly sophisticated thermal control technology, and cryogenic applications will become increasingly more common. For example, the Single Aperture Far-IR (SAFIR) telescope and other cryogenic telescope missions must… more
Abstract:Future MDA missions will require various enhancements in multi-stage cryocoolers. These include increased efficiency, reduced vibration and reductions in overall system mass and power consumption. For the small coolers required, pulse tube and Stirling coolers offer the best opportunities. At… more
Abstract:Networks of short-range wireless sensors can yield cost-effective solutions in diverse military and commercial settings, especially where occlusions render long-range sensors operationally ineffective. The current state-of-the-art in application design, however, falls short of realizing… more
Abstract:This Phase-II proposal addresses Air Force STTR Topic AF07-T031 (Robust, Autonomous, Inexpensive Space Weather Sensors), which was released with the objective to develop robust, autonomous, low-cost sensors to deliver near real-time, three-dimensional space environmental data. The Air Force requires… more
Abstract:We are proposing to build a new technology, the photo-pneumatic analyzer. It is small, solid-state, inexpensive, and appropriate for observations of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) from six of the seven robotic platforms being targeted by NASA in its solicitation. An inexpensive MEMS transducer is… 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. The DOE has expressed a need for the development of CO2 instrumentation that can be deployed on small balloons and other robotic platforms… more
Abstract:The DOD requires an environmentally friendly, rapid, and non-destructive method to selectively remove coatings from composite substrates. Atmospheric Plasma Solutions Inc. (APS) has developed a cold atmospheric plasma process to accomplish this goal. Current processes for the removal of coatings… more
Abstract:The Navy and other DoD components require a media-free, environmentally friendly, rapid, and non-destructive method to remove coatings applied on and aboard Navy ships. Atmospheric Plasma Solutions Inc. (APS) has developed an atmospheric plasma process to accomplish this goal. Current processes for… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I project provides a significant advancement of the state of the art in fast, high-precision calibration and control of deformable mirrors for adaptive optics (AO)applications.

Abstract:The design of high performance adaptive optics systems requires a knowledge of the characteristics of optical turbulence that directly impact system performance. Laser weapons designers require an understanding of worst case turbulence effects in order to develop optimal designs. Compensation… more
Abstract:Conversation between a patient and their human caregiver is important for building the patient's trust and acceptance of the helper. This may also be true for electronic cognitive assistants. Human caregivers also function independently from the patient. Electronic cognitive aids simply echo the… more
Abstract:Our objective is to demonstrate the feasibility and merit of a cognitive aid that monitors the user"s situation to provide cues based on state conditions instead of pre-scheduled cues which are based only on time. We extend a commercially available cognitive aid to use condition-based cues which are… 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.
