Abstract:High strength copper alloys are preferred as the base rails for railguns due to their combination of strength and electrical and thermal conductivity, but suffer damage due to high current densities, arcing, gouging, and exposure to molten aluminum armatures. A refractory… more
Abstract:Advanced turboshaft engine impeller disks work at a high rotational speed at elevated temperatures which vary from the disk rim to its bore. Due to contact with combustion gases, the rim possesses a significantly greater temperature than the bore. This temperature gradient implies different… more

Abstract:… energy, including communications, portable computers, chemical-biological-radiological sensors and other systems. These electronics are critical to soldier combat effectiveness. Primary batteries now provide the main energy source, but the acquisition, storage,… more
Abstract:This MDA Phase II "Super" SBIR program proposes to demonstrate three distinct, mission-enabling components for insertion in MDA/Navy Aegis BMD Standard Missile 3 Block IIA upgrade (SM3 BLK IIA). These components are: 1. The divert and ACS thruster nozzles in the kinetic warhead (KW). 2. The hot… more
Abstract:… shrinkage, high bond strength, and excellent hermiticity. Zr/Ti and Zr/Al doped polysilazanes will be powder coated, thereby increasing ceramic yield by limiting volatile content. Doped SiCN coatings offer lower Young's modulus and tailorable coefficients of thermal expansion… more
Abstract:… will be a controlled variable, taking advantage of the solubility of carbon in molten Group IV carbides. Hypereutectic carbides, upon solidification, precipitate highly oriented graphite flakes within the eutectic structure. These flakes provide advantages in thermal and… more
Abstract:High pressure, layflat hoselines are used in Army water and fuel systems to transport bulk fluid over long distances to provide ease of storage, layout, set-up and retrieval. In order to meet the Armyf?Ts need for an improved hoseline with a higher working pressure (740 psi) and… more
Abstract:… Research, Inc. (MSRI) and University of Utah (research institution) seeks to fabricate single-phase, polycrystalline tungstate ceramics with densities greater than 99.95% and a mean grain size of less than 1 um. These ceramics have been chosen because of their low thermal… more
Abstract:This STTR Phase I project will develop a novel toxic material storage bag with an inner liner capable of decontaminating chemical and biological warfare agents (CBWA's).. The inner-liner technology would entail adsorption and decomposition of warfare agents without the release… 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.
