The heart of the D-Cycle engine is the… more
Abstract:Today's riverine forces employ combatant patrol/assault craft that rely on speed, acceleration, and maneuverability for survivability and multi-mission success. These capabilities are at risk because of the increasing demand to carry more extensive payloads. Current diesel fuel propulsion systems… more
Abstract:Current methods used to determine the shape of towed sonar arrays are limited to basic models that use data from heading and depth sensors. These sensors are prone to measurement noise especially during maneuvers. The research team recognizes that neither a fiber optic measurement system nor a… more
Abstract:Aither's proposed solution will examine the development of an innovative fiber optic hull shape sensing system based on a hybrid sensing scheme to allow for the extremely large number of measurement points required for the submarine structure. During Phase I, Aither will determine the required… more
Abstract:Drawing from existing COTS/MOTS systems, we propose to develop a broad tool kit of undersea, in-air, and satellite communications systems that are tailored to the unique capabilities and constraints of the autonomous, mobile, and persistent Wave Glider wave-propelled unmanned surface vehicle (USV).… more
Abstract:Currently there are no software platforms for developing and evaluating reusable, virtual, communicative spatio-temporal agents. This makes rapid development and meaningful comparative evaluation, critical requirements for military and non-military applications, infeasible. Lack of such a platform… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of using MOSFET-embedded cantilevers for integrated electronic detection of cantilever deflection for scanning near-field ultrasound holography (SNFUH). This synergistic combination of the scanning probe… more
Abstract:This SBIR project proposes to develop a novel bioreactor that will contain biocatalytic coatings for the desulfurization of petroleum products. A biodesulfurization microorganism will be immobilized at the interface of a two-phase membrane with a biocatalytic coating. Biodesufurization technology… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes novel MEMS and electro-optical system designs and manufacturing processes to create world's first high definition video micro-projectors that are so miniaturized, low-cost, and low power consuming that they can be integrated in… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop a data mining system to analyze semi-continuous GPS data generated by consumer mobile devices. The system will thereby detect emergent patterns and draw inferences about each consumer's behavior, preferences, and… more
Abstract:This project addresses the problem of increasing biomass feed to electricity-generating power furnaces with the goal of reducing GHGs. Currently wood pellets are burned, but the ash content and lower energy density limit their use. Lignin pellets have approximately the same energy content as coal,… more
Abstract:This project allows pulp and paper mills to extract a purified lignin stream from their recovery process. By making up the fuel value of this extracted lignin the mill remains carbon neutral. A power company that can replace coal with lignin achieves a significant GHG reduction. The sequential… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop software to prevent the manipulation of consumer reviews of websites and online businesses. Consumer reviews are a vital component in educating consumers about the trustworthiness of websites. However, any platform that… more
Abstract:The Smart Grid opens the door to the development of many companion devices which will in turn enable the development of a variety of devices for household electricity-consuming appliances that can communicate with it; especially, many major appliance manufacturers (such as Whirlpool and General… more
Abstract:SK Infrared LLC, a spin-off from the Krishna INfrared Detector (KIND) laboratory at the UNM (www.chtm.unm.edu/kind) is proposing to develop a dual band SLS based imager using an nBn based heterostructure design in collaboration with Raytheon Vision Systems (letter attached). The proposed effort… more
Abstract:BST Systems proposes a development program that will result in the elimination of the deficiencies of the silver zinc chemistry: Specifically, the program will result in large format silver zinc cells and batteries that have longer life, longer cycle life, are sealed and will require minimal… 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.
