Abstract:Current high-performance MWIR FPAs require cooling with a cryo-cooler to ~77 K, the cryo-cooler that limits the system lifetime. If the FPA operation temperature can be raised to>170 K without sacrificing performance, then lower power and longer lifetime MWIR cameras should be possible. Type-II… more
Abstract:NASA is investigating advanced turboelectric aircraft propulsion systems that utilize superconducting motors to drive a number of distributed turbofans. Conventional electric motors are too large and heavy to be practical for this application, and so superconducting motors are required. In order… more

Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Current generation of military GPS User Equipment (UE) uses significantly more power than a commercial GPS unit. There is a desire to develop operational techniques and lower power devices to increase operational use of hand-held military GPS devices. A lower power alternative to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Yellow fever virus (YFV) was at one time endemic in the United States and represents a mosquito-borne emerging/re-emerging human pathogen that causes up to 20% mortality. The current live attenuated YFV vaccine was developed in 1936 and following the development… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase 2 effort focuses on development of a supercapacitor energy storage device based on novel metal oxide-carbon nanocomposites. In the Phase 1 project, NanoScale discovered a group of cathode nanocomposites with an exceptionally high capacitance of 270 F/g… more
Abstract:High efficiency, low pollution, and long lifetime make hydrogen-powered fuel cells desirable for portable power generation by the Army. However, it is impractical to transport hydrogen to where it is needed. Instead, reforming a transportable liquid fuel such as JP-8 or diesel fuel can produce the… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase-II project is aimed at developing Micro Metal Sphere (MMS) fabrication technology for Radio-Frequency (RF) Micro-Electro-Mechanical-System (MEMS) switch. The target applications are high-bandwidth RF switches and digitally-tunable RF modules that can be… more
Abstract:Successful military operations require dominant control of the electromagnetic spectrum in the battlefield. Smokes and obscurants are becoming increasingly important to block the function of enemy optical tracking systems and sensors during day and night operations. Fielded munitions are optimized… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Carbon fiber-reinforced composites undergo subcritical damage well before final failure. A self-healing composite material is proposed that will autonomously sense and repair localized damage in composite structures. Healing is accomplished via two main components. The first component is… more
Abstract:A Single Cell time-of-flight Mass Spectrometer (SCMS) that is enabled by the use of a nanoparticle based MALDI matrix will be fabricated and tested. Unlike traditional surface-receptor-based cell phenotyping and identification techniques, the SCMS system will be able to differentiate between cell… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Control of infection and thrombosis in total artificial heart technology has been of great concern for the last five decades. Even for totally implantable total artificial hearts, infection control is necessary because patients still need percutaneous lines for… more
Abstract:A significant fraction of new battlefield instrumentation is based on lasers and the performance of directed energy weapons (DEW) has improved. Therefore, the susceptibility of modern weapon, reconnaissance, and surveillance systems in particular those with optical sensors is acute. Recent… more
Abstract:In this Phase II effort, we will scale-up to commercial levels a proprietary technology for producing highly semiconducting enriched (99%) single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). The technology utilizes a technique, called density gradient ultracentrifugation (DGU), to separate as-grown SNWTs by… 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.
