Abstract:Nighttime bioluminescence poses a large naval tactical problem. Therefore a navigation aid is required for underwater vehicles (manned or un-manned) that will sense the platform-induced (e.g. an Unmanned Underwater Vehicle, SEAL Delivery Vehicle, or diver) bioluminescence, water optical properties,… more
Abstract:Increase navigational safety of surface vessels through the development of forward looking sonar capable of operating at high speeds. Provide an innovative sonar and mounting or deployment method with minimal cavitation to increase sonar performance while maintaining high speed operational… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This proposal is a direct response to a stated need for a system to ....educate and alert aviators during their flight training and medical examinations, with real-life examples of the adverse effects of antihistamine
s (and over-the-counter-drugs) and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this project is to develop an automated respiratory rate monitor that is economical, easy to use, accurate and widely accessible. The motivation for this project is well documented findings that respiratory
rates are not accurately measured in many… more
Abstract:Successful geothermal reservoir development requires knowledge of subsurface structures such as the location and orientation of fracture systems and possible fluid flow pathways. While techniques exist for characterizing the subsurface in oil and gas applications, technical capabilities must be… more
Abstract:Measurement of the absolute amplitudes of a seismic signal requires accurate knowledge of the seismometer-digitizer response. In some cases, particularly for historic data or data from denied regions, the response may be unknown or incorrectly known. Under the DOE SBIR/STTR FY 2009 Phase I program… more
Abstract:Astronauts suffer from poor dexterity of their hands due to the clumsy spacesuit gloves during Extravehicular Activity (EVA) operations and NASA has had a widely recognized but unmet need for novel human machine interface technologies to facilitate data entry, communications, and robots or… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose to develop open source software components and a database design standard that specifically supports the natural products drug discovery community, and make them widely available to research groups without co
st. While the utility of natural products… more
Abstract:As minimum cost will be required for a dedicated Nano-Sat Launch Vehicle, a parallel staged, highly modular vehicle architecture is proposed for development. The principal advantage of a modular architecture for this size of vehicle is the single propulsion development for the boost stages at a… more
Abstract:A Mars ascent vehicle (MAV) uses solid rocket motors to propel soil samples into orbit, but the motors cannot provide steering. Cold gas thrusters are used for initial steering and spin stabilization for the final stage of flight. This approach is heavy and results in a spinning sample container… more
Abstract:Widetronix is commercializing betavoltaic batteries that produce nA to uA's of current continuously for 3 to 100 years. In addition to meeting desired AT operational lifetimes (>25 years), these continuous power generators have high energy density potential enabling integration with ultra low-power… more
Abstract:The proliferation of wireless sensor networks throughout factory environments for applications including process monitoring, control, and machinery condition-based maintenance (CBM) have been evident for some time. Building upon our experience with low-power wireless sensor networks and CBM,… more
Abstract:The Navy needs new, low cost connector technologies that enhance high voltage cabling, and shipbuilding companies like Northrop Grumman are urgently investigating solutions. Currently, commercially available connectors are too large, too difficult to install and repair, and too expensive.… more
Abstract:The Navy needs robust and cost-effective electrical connectors that are completely water impermeable, even under prolonged exposures to high and varying water pressures. These connectors must be reliable enough for frequent connection and disconnection (even under water), corrosion-resistant,… more
Abstract:Current Joint Operations in the Middle East have highlighted the need for increased system reliability and reduced petroleum consumption as both a cost reduction and force protection mechanism in the tactical battlefield. Williams-Pyro, Inc., is proposing to develop the Generator Fault Investigation… more
Abstract:Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) contaminated areas range from military training facilities here at home to the battlefield located in foreign lands, this UXO poses threats to both civilian and military personnel alike. To help Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) teams locate and extract UXO, Williams-Pyro,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): For much of the small and mid-scale cell culture work at the core of biotechnology, traditional culture ware such as flasks and roller bottles are the only devices that are practical for use. Although they are easy to u

Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Low cost high frequency (15, 20 and 25 MHz), and high resolution medical imaging linear array transducers will be designed and constructed for commercial sale under the direction and design of the NIH Resource Center fo
r Ultrasonic Transducer Technology at the… more
Abstract:The maximum data rates through store interfaces based on MIL-STD-1760 or other interface standards have been previously limited by older technology data bus standards used with these interfaces. This has limited or precluded the ability to conduct efficient and timely transfers of some types of… 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.
