The project focuses on using the silica for Silica-Titania Composites but would also take into account markets that employ… more
Abstract:Multispectral ZnS is a window material for long wave-infrared (LWIR) in the range (0.5-12 microns). The main drawback of ZnS is an insufficient chemical and mechanical strength which leads to optical degradation of the window''s properties. Current processes involve Chemical Vapor Deposition and Hot… more
Abstract:This ARMY SBIR Phase I project will determine the best opto-mechanical approach for massively parallel Laser Chemical Vapor Deposition of ceramic fibers by building on work already performed at RPI, Univ of Montreal, and Free Form Fibers (FFF). Ceramic fibers are typically produced using polymeric… more
Abstract:Because of their macromolecular structure, elastomers exhibit unique behavior and require special-purpose modeling and simulation methods. Endurica has developed a patented system for the simulation of fatigue life in elastomeric materials. The fatigue life is the number of cycles that a material… more
Abstract:The objective of this topic is to evaluate real-time/runtime construction terrain technologies and determine if these can be directly connected to an enhanced OneSAF constructive simulation through an open API (Open Low Level Extensible Terrain Query API). Doing so would enable OneSAF to support… more
Abstract:Terrain database correlation and automated testing are areas needing innovative and reliable solutions. Specifically, there are minimal correlation testing solutions and the vast majority of terrain database verification processes rely on human-in-the-loop testing. Hence, these tests are time… more

The… more
Abstract:This project will demonstrate the feasibility of using regenerative suspension technology with semi-active control capabilities to both harness waste energy from military vehicle suspensions and simultaneously improve ride quality/handling. The proposed effort includes modeling, simulation, and… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to develop a hydraulic regenerative shock absorber and charge system for hybrid trucks. An appreciable amount of energy is lost in a typical suspension as heat, especially in heavy vehicles. Existing technologies have been… more
Abstract:Ellipsah LLC proposes a Phase I research program that will study the feasibility, benefits, performance and costs of an energy regenerative suspension system. The anticipated energy surplus, under various operating conditions, will be determined. Ellipsah's research will focus on innovative linear… more
Abstract:The increase in burn injuries suffered by US Soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan has made flame resistant combat clothing of great importance to improving individual Soldier protection. Wool is a naturally flame resistant fiber, but its tendency to irreversibly shrink when washed and dried has limited… more
Abstract:This submission describes techniques for extracting pluripotential, resident stem cells from patients requiring tissue engineered surgical reconstruction by inducing the release of those cells that is known to occur under altered ambient pressures. Fundamental to this goal is the design and… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project will create a powerful technology platform for teaching scientists and engineers how to develop their discoveries into successful businesses that transform innovative ideas from the lab to enterprise, from enterprise to value.… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project offers a substantial improvement in the surgical treatment of cancer.

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.
