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
Abstract:There are 315 to 458 million metric tons of CO2 (or equivalents) emissions per year due to primary aluminum production, of which 21 to 31 million metric tons are estimated to be produced in the United States. In part, this is due to the enormous electrical energy consumption entailed: 548… more
Abstract:Wireless Sensor Technologies will develop a passive wireless temperature sensor system for gas turbine engine applications under the referenced SBIR. Once productized, the functional and operational goals for the sensor are to 1) Measure the surface temperature of the Yttria Stabilized Zirconia… more
Abstract:Condition-based Maintenance (CBM) systems significantly improve the effectiveness of maintenance programs for complex systems by optimizing the timing and focus of the procedure. The approach minimizes the associated costs. The proposed sensor system enables CBM sensors to be easily added to… more
Abstract:A Weigh-in-Motion (WIM) system is being developed that will deploy in or on roadways of all types and accurately measure and report weights of crossing vehicles, including total vehicle weight and individual axle and wheel weights. The innovation in the system is that it senses horizontal (lateral… more
Modern technology, particularly computers and weather satellites, and the availability of data provided by coordinated meteorological observing networks, has resulted in enormous improvements in the accuracy of weather forecasting. Satellites, in particular, have given… more
Abstract:Many fire accidents in aircraft are related to engine nacelle as the environment involving fuel and high temperature. Once fire occur an engine usually lost its operation capability or even explodes. Preventing, suppressing, and extinguishing engine fires are critical engine design factors.… more
Abstract:Lightweight structures has enormous potential for space vehicles applications as the reduction of weight from metallic structures add to vehicle performance, reduce launching and maintenance costs. The high strength, superior stiffness, and lightweight characteristics of carbon fibers have created… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase I project will develop bimetallic platinum copper/carbon nanofibers in a filter media system to react and remove nitrate from drinking water. In the same operation the system will perform filtration and thereby reduce the time for the operation and cost. The bulk of the Phase I… more
Abstract:The current ballistic material systems for small arms protective inserts in personnel armor are based on ceramic plates with fiber-reinforced composite backing. The current Interceptor OTV (Outer Tactical Vest) and SAPI (Small Arms Protective Inserts) have saved many lives, but the current… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The analysis of complex natural mixtures presents a significant scientific challenge in biomedical studies involving natural products and other complex biogenic samples, particularly when the need for isolation of minor
constituents arises. Countercurrent… more
Abstract:In flight diagnosis and anomaly detection is a difficult challenge that requires sufficient observation and real-time processing of health information. Our approach uses formalized attributes that are available as selectable and enforceable properties necessary for diagnosis based on principles of… more
Abstract:Verification and Validation is a multi-disciplinary activity that encompasses elements of systems engineering, safety, software engineering and test. The elements that go into the V&V of a complex, software intensive product come out of activities that are performed by all of these disciplines… 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.
