Abstract:Luna Innovations Incorporated and CURBC (Calspan - University of Buffalo Research Center) are proposing to develop miniature, high-speed, high-temperature, fiber-optic pressure sensors that will fill the void that currently exists between ground and flight test instrumentation. The sensors small… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Many craniofacial surgical procedures involve both functional and aesthetic reconstruction for successful completion. The need for soft tissue fill for additional functionality and contouring is an aspect that can have
lower priority during reconstructive… more
Abstract:NASA needs compact nuclear reactors to power future bases on the moon and Mars. These reactors require robust automatic control systems using low mass, rapid response, in-core reactor power monitoring sensors and radiation tolerant sensor interrogation systems that do not yet exist. Luna proposes… more
Abstract:Multifunctional theranostic nanodevices carrying therapeutic payloads, diagnostic agents, and targeted and controlled drug release functions can simultaneously and effectively diagnose and treat cancers. The targeted delivery of chemotherapeutics to tumors can significantly increase the… more
Abstract:A need exists for advances in non toxic treatments for cover and barrier fabrics. Since polybrominated materials have been banned in many European countries and the production of a number of brominated additives terminated in the U.S. as well, future technologies must focus on non-halogenated… more
Abstract:Composite materials, with their high strength to weight ratios, manipulative properties, and corrosion resistance are now widely utilized throughout the military. High performance composites are required for air, sea, and land platforms. One of the drawbacks of these composite systems is the… more
Abstract:While maxillofacial, head and neck structures compose approximately 12% of total body surface area, traditionally approximately 16% of battlefield injuries have involved the head and neck, with even higher percentages in the most recent conflicts. The head and neck have very complex anatomy. … more
Abstract:Existing methods to provide cable orientation and array element localization in the Navy"s fixed and towed array systems and tethered unmanned vehicles rely on devices embedded in the cable itself, such as hydrophones, magnetic heading and orientation sensors, and accelerometers. These… more
Abstract:Current and future military force is moving to be lighter, faster, and stealthier in order to maintain an operational advantage. For example, a lightweight and small volume underwater breathing apparatus (UBA) is required to supply combat divers with continuous breathing gas in the water A… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project will focus on the development, implementation and evaluation of messaging designed to increase the availability and selection of healthier restaurant dining choices and positively impact public health. During Phase I, communication specialists… more
Abstract:The necessity of Trust has been pressed upon the United States Department of Defense as a consequence of the globalization of microelectronics development and manufacturing. Many of the microelectronic devices used in DOD systems and much of the software used in the design of such systems are… more
Abstract:On-aircraft repair of systems with sensitive equipment require adhesives that possess mild curing conditions/temperatures and that rapidly achieve a lap shear strength of 2500 psi or greater as these materials will have to bear considerable loads. It is necessary to develop an adhesive that cures at… more
Abstract:This proposal seeks to determine the best approach for the design of a high performance, high reliability Fibre Channel switch for use in weapons systems. Most military avionics systems use a standard called MIL-STD-1760E for transferring data between smart stores and weapon payloads/munitions. … more
Abstract:Luna Innovations will determine the feasibility of developing a light weight energy dense Zn-hybrid biological fuel cell that is capable of powering small unmanned systems (UAS's) and small UAS's in the field. The proposed Zn-hybrid biological fuel cell will provide significant improvements in… more
Abstract:The use of sealants in aircraft assembly and repair is extensive. Sealants are used to wet install fasteners, for sealing overlapping surfaces, for butt joints between panels, and for seam sealing. Aerospace sealants are typically two component polysulfide or polythioether compositions that can… more
Abstract:Luna Innovations Incorporated proposes novel additives, base stocks and lubricant formulations to reduce jitter of dielectric fluids in high repetition rate dielectric switch application. Dielectric fluids will be synthesized or modified to reduce the gassing tendency. Alkylated naphthalenes,… 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.
