Abstract:RobTre Research proposes to develop an algorithm that reduces severity and duration of blurred focus and the associated reduction in visibility and detectability ranges caused by tow ship maneuvering. It also improves left-right disambiguation during straight line towing. The proposed approach is a… more
Abstract:Limiters are an important component in military phased array systems. They protect the LNA from damage caused by high power signals present at its input. MPT proposes the development of a MMIC limiter that will have bandwidth from 1-20GHz and handle 100W of input power.
Abstract:Operation Mental Scorpion is a multi-platform brain trainer software program delivered in an engaging format that provides rigorous training of working memory capacity using adaptive technology and a highly motivational learning environment. The activities and progression through the activities in… more
Abstract:We propose to develop a multi-modal interaction framework an unmanned helicopter and warfighers who are not skilled UAS operators. This framework can support multiple modes, such as sketch, speech, chat and gesture, including simultaneous multi-modal input in one interaction.
Abstract:The Power Frond Generator utilizes unique geometry and flexible electroactive polymers to capture hydrokinetic energy via dynamic material strain. It accomplishes this without the need for bearings or exposed moving parts. The Power Frond is highly resistant to extreme events such as excessive… more
Abstract:PNTS Incorporated (formerly Princeton Nanotechnology Systems) has teamed with researchers from Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio, to provide a novel, comprehensive response to SBIR Topic N111-073. In this program, we propose to combine Wright State University"s research in non-destructive… more
Abstract:Tunable bandpass filters are more and more widely used in modern RF communication systems with the ever increasing availability of bandwidth. The demand has been growing for tunable bandpass filters with improved performance on insertion loss, tunable range, bandwidth, linearity, size, weight, and… more
Abstract:This SBIR effort will evaluate the present state of the fiber optic illumination technology developed for US Navy applications, the new developments in high intensity light sources for illumination and for other applications, the optical fibers used for high energy transport applications, the… more
Abstract:The emergence of new generations of munitions and others military systems has created demand for adaptable high energy density power sources. Both batteries and energy harvesters have been used separately, but with limited success. The purpose of this program is to respond to this unmet need by… more
Abstract:The project will develop a novel generator that will allow the simultaneous generating of regulated voltages and currents. The new generator will use a newly developed magnetic design technology that can yield high output power and efficiency with conventional magnet materials such as ferrite or… more
Abstract:In 2008, Larry Fullerton made a fundamental discovery in magnetism. That discovery has led to the development of permanent magnets with programmed spatial force curves, tuned field-propagation characteristics, higher attachment forces and lower cost fabrication of magnet assemblies. The opportunity… more
Abstract:Southwest Services LLC Confined Space Projectile Launcher is a derivative of a conventional shoulder fired recoilless launcher incorporating improvements to dampening the energy and overpressure within the exhaust gases. Our CSPL will increase the muzzle energy of the launcher which will have a… more
Abstract:The Intelligence Community and recent trend analysis suggests that future terrorism will expand the use of IED, VBIED"s and Person Borne Suicide Vests. Current Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) technology uses Single Shot Disruptors for disarming these threats whenever possible. Recent… more
Abstract:The project will develop a new processing technology of equal-channel angular extrusion (ECAE) providing semi-continuous multipass ECAE without necessity for billet cleaning, reshaping and preheating between passes. This approach turns ECAE into an effective operation that can be applied at large… more
Abstract:The software system, Sensor Atom Configuration Software (SACS), will use of knowledge management techniques through ontologies capturing knowledge about sensor atoms and 3D targets, advance algorithm design, and concept of operations to allow for flexible sensor system design and predict sensor… more
Abstract:Sustainable biofuel solutions that produce drop-in diesel and jet fuels compatible with existing petroleum-based infrastructure are critical to reducing the environmental impact of petroleum fuels and protecting US energy independence. Fungal systems can address this problem through the production… more
Abstract:Triglycerides oils and biodiesel from various sources can be converted into renewable JP-8 through chemical means. However, the problem with this process is the cost of the triglyceride feedstock. Currently, the only source of this oil is from edible food crops. There is a concerted effort to… more
Abstract:The primary objective of this Phase I project is to develop radar-based techniques and algorithms to accurately estimate the parameters of walls, such as dielectric constant, conductivity (or loss-tangent) and thickness, as well as to devise methods that can characterize inhomogeneous walls 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.
