Abstract:BERCLI Corp. and partners United Technologies Research Corp. and Marietta NDT Inc. propose an integrated inspection system comprised of custom phased-array probes, self-aligning mechanical fixturing to ensure proper alignment of the probes at all measurement points, a mechanical scanner suitable for… more
Abstract:Currently, there is no scalable method for the production of BN nano-tubes with a controlled diameter. In this project, PH Matter, LLC will partner with Dr. Sheldon Shore from the Ohio State University to develop a commercially viable and scalable process for the selective production of BN… more
Abstract:This proposal describes the development of highly versatile rough terrain robotic transport for use as a squad support vehicle. Extensive use of commercial components and assemblies will allow a vehicle with purpose designed capabilities to be rapidly created and tested for a modest cost. The design… more
Abstract:DDC will implement an innovative advanced Bandwidth Enhancement Block to raise sustained data write performance to over 500MB/s. This block adds to an existing architecture (already deployed by the military). The result will be very low SWAP as it is not necessary to run several drives to obtain the… more
Abstract:The Gen II Big Dog (LS3) requires a JP8/diesel-fueled engine to power its hydraulic pump. This 30-45kw engine and hydraulic pump must weigh less than 110 lbs and consume less than .66lbs/kw*hr. Cosworth proposes to adapt one of its a direct injection, compression ignition, 2-stroke cycle… 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.
