Abstract:ABSTRACT: Most of the air delivered air force weapons are designed to detonate inside structures. However, due to targeting inaccuracies and other reasons they may land outside a structure and could detonate partially or fully buried in soil. These events could result in collateral damage to… more

Abstract:The increased need for portable efficient power has led to the use of the fuel cell as a means of delivering that power. However, portable power also means the ability to utilize any available fuel as the situation would arise. A fuel reformer is needed that supplies the proper reformate to the… more
Abstract:Today's military equipment is required to operate in extreme conditions: frigid arctic locations, dry/hot deserts, and humid tropical jungles, which leads to design operating temperature ranges of approximately -50degreesC to 70degreesC for current power systems. No commercial electric power… more
Abstract:Aircraft are susceptible to ballistic and other projectile damage. They are particularly vulnerable to damage to their fuel tanks. As a result, most jet fighters and all U.S. military rotary wing aircraft employ some type of seal-sealing fuel tank technology. Unfortunately, the existing self-sealing… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Thermal interface materials (TIMs) constitute an essential part of thermal management which is quickly becoming the limiting factor in high power, high functional density, and increasingly small-sized electronics for future U.S. Air Force (AF) platforms. Examples of critical applications… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Energy harvesting has emerged as a critical need for many current and future Air Force missions to enable their long endurance requirements. Traditional approaches have focused on harvesting solar and vibration (i.e., via the use of piezoelectric materials) energy. More recently,… more
Abstract:Tuberculosis (TB) is a re-emerging infectious disease threat worldwide. To protect the health of US military personnel, TB screen is required for military personnel at the time of service entrance. However, current TB screening methods TST and IGRA used in military population have their drawbacks… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Fires initiating in engine nacelles and dry bays are the most common causes of loss of aircraft. However, since the Montreal Protocol restricting the production of Halons, a replacement has not yet been accepted by the aircraft survivability community despite numerous testing programs.… more
Abstract:For more than the past 100 years, increasing the range and autonomy of ships, submarines and more recently unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs) has been a primary goal for navies around the world and their ship designers. Many modern critical naval operations such as accessing strategic, denied… more
Abstract:Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) has become an essential need for the U.S. Warfighter. In support of this need, the use of autonomous vehicles has grown considerably over the past decade. In particular, the use of small unmanned ground vehicles (SUGV) has proven to be invaluable… more
Abstract:A subtle and often unrecognized assumption lies behind the use of the terms salience and perception when they appear in the context of human information processing. Although it has become commonplace to blend the language of low-level physiological process with the language of high-level cognition,… more
Abstract:Adaptive Dynamics has developed a Multiple Adaptive Generalized Interference Cancellation (MAGICTM) hardware prototype filter that has demonstrated robust performance for protecting current narrowband UHF SATCOM systems against both narrowband and frequency dynamic interference without any prior… more
Abstract:Adaptive Methods and Applied Research Laboratory at Penn State are developing a hierarchical inference approach for multi-modal unattended ground sensor (UGS) networks. that will enable significant performance gains via integrated machine learning techniques, to include In situ performance… more
Abstract:This SBIR project provides the opportunity to address the challenges associated with protecting the carrier or other high value units from the submarine threat with the addition of a real-time decision aid for multi-sensor threat assessment. Adaptive Methods proposes a sailor-centric approach for… more
Abstract:Submarines have a need for situational awareness at all times. They are equipped with Fat Line acoustic arrays such as the T-16 and the TB-34 in order to provide this awareness. However, at low tow speeds the array droops from front to back and also loses straightness. This spatial distortion… more
Abstract:AN/SQQ-89 surface combatant mid-frequency active (MFA) processing will benefit significantly through an open-architecture approach (OA) to system implementation, allowing proposed and future advanced technologies to be introduced through a built-test-build and Advanced Processor Build (ABP) process.… more
Abstract:Current and future ASW systems need a strategy to effectively share data among network users. Net-centric systems require exact data formats and vocabularies to create accurate knowledge without human intervention. Significant efforts have been expended developing the Anti-Submarine Warfare… more
Abstract:The proposed project will result in an anthropometrically realistic and viable simulator for the testing, evaluation, and validation of firearms and
associated ammunition. The approach being taken to achieve the end device is to capture both the active and reactive system loads and dynamics of
Abstract:This project will build on a substantial body of empirical research to develop and validate multiscale models of ultrasonic bonding during tape placement of metal matrix composite (MMC) structures. Experiments to-date have been guided by knowledge of the ultrasonic bonding of metals heuristically… more
Abstract:Carbon fiber/PEEK thermoplastic composite has advantages over both thermoset based composites and metals in the areas of weight, damage tolerance, and manufacturing costs while maintaining solvent and temperature resistance. It is proposed that substituting the existing aluminum driveshafts with… more
Abstract:An improved neutron collection and focusing lens is needed for small angle neutron scatter and neutron microscopy, and increasing flux for thermal neutron capture gamma analysis. Adelphi Technology proposes to design, fabricate, and test a two-dimensional magnetic lens to refract and focus thermal… 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.
