Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The prostate is a mobile organ that demonstrates momentary and daily changes in position and shape that critically affect accurate delivery of radiation therapy. For this reason, in modern technically demanding radiation therapy for prostate cancer, it is… more
Abstract:Recent advances in airport surface surveillance have motivated the creation of new tools for analysis of Air Traffic Control (ATC) operations, such as the Surface Operations Data Analysis and Adaptation (SODAA) tool, which is being used by NASA to conduct airport ATC operations analysis. What is… more
Abstract:Mosaic ATM's Autonomous Systems Group is actively developing technologies to accelerate F2T2EA operations. In Phase I, Mosaic ATM designed and prototyped the Automated Geopositional Feature-on-Video Overlay Service (AFOS) as a candidate system for real-time Multi-Source Imagery and… more
Abstract:This project develops an electronic-controlled version of the advanced hydraulic foot/ankle (MCI Foot) demonstrating the feasibility of the automatic adjustment of resistance throughout the range of motion. The advanced MCI Foot, especially the automatic-controlled version, contributes to the… more
Abstract:Sheep ranching and wool production have been a part of our country & #8223;s rural heritage for more than a hundred years, with small and mid-sized ranches serving as the backbone of our country & #8223;s sheep operations. Presently, small operators account for more total ewes than larger… more
Abstract:Tracking and recognition of fast moving targets require fast, sensitive, uniform focal plane arrays (FPAs). However, high performance single-band FPAs are sometimes unable to discriminate a target from its background when they present similar infrared radiation at a given wavelength. This may occur… more
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:This project addresses very high power switches for accelerators used in high-energy physics research and particle research. Existing devices have relatively slow switching times, compared to those required for the application. The proposed program seeks to develop high-voltage, high-current… more
Abstract:Muon beam ionization cooling is a key element in the design of next-generation low-emittance and high-luminosity muon colliders. New approaches in that cooling could greatly improve the performance and capabilities of these colliders. To obtain low-emittance muon beams, a new concept is being… more
Abstract:As an essential part of the roadmap to develop an ultra low power radar system, Mustang Technology Group proposes to design, fabricate and test circuit boards that demonstrate a reduction in power of the current VIPER radar by more than half.
Abstract:ABSTRACT: MZA, teamed with UCLA and Notre Dame proposes the design, development, verification, and demonstration of a real-time adaptive optics (AO) wavefront control processor implementing the linear time-invariant (LTI) predictive control algorithm investigated in Phase I. We will also conduct… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The objective of the EVISTA project is to create an intelligent software solution designed to aid users and administrators in addressing their security concerns during the IPv4 to IPv6 transition phase. An expert system is combined with network-sensing tools and agents to i) identify… more
Abstract:The work proposed herein is to demonstrate that the higher temperature capabilities of Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC) can be fully utilized to reduce emissions and improve fuel consumption in gas turbine engines. The work involves closely coupling aerothermal and structural analyses for the first… more
Abstract:A dismounted soldier or airman who turns on his GPS receiver on the battlefield depends on a quick and accurate navigation solution, even in areas where the GPS signals may be degraded. The intent of this SBIR program is to address this requirement by providing military GPS receivers with an… more
Abstract:Emerging Cognitive Radio (CR) technologies are allowing the development of radios that can"observe,""orient,""plan,""decide,""learn,"and"act"to adapt the performance of a Software Defined Radio (SDR) in response to stimuli in the external… 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
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.
