Abstract:The torpedo threat to U.S. and coalition naval forces is real and growing. Incorporating machine learning into the fire control piece for the Torpedo Warning System (TWS) can help to increase the probability of kill for the large number of possible torpedo threats. Metron, Inc. proposes a unique… more
Abstract:The opportunity presented under this program is to develop next-generation fuel-sealing technology that can be applied to impart self-sealing capability to the most vulnerable areas of integral aircraft fuel tanks. Targeted application of the self-sealing materials will reduce the weight and fuel… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Hill AFB Industrial Water Treatment Plant typically uses metal hydroxide precipitation to remove heavy metals from the waste stream. However, there are numerous chemicals found in common cleaners and other products in the wastewater that interfere with the precipitation process,… more
Abstract:Solar shading is used by the military in many different field applications as a cost effective approach to reduce fuel consumption for climate control in expeditionary shelters. These relatively simple, low cost shades offer one of the most significant energy saving solutions for expeditionary… more
Abstract:The objective of this program is to develop and demonstrate a bladder storage and delivery system to supply reactants used in air independent propulsion systems. The system design will be adaptable to a variety of reactant types and propulsion systems (e.g., meet capacity, flow and pressure… more
Abstract:METSS proposes to develop its flaccid liner approach for fuel/oxidizer delivery systems used in UUV energy sections. A key element is the use of unstressed bags constructed from polymeric materials that are compatible with the liquid reactants required by the power plant. The system is initially… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Michigan Aerospace Corporation, in cooperation with the University of Michigan"s Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic, and Space Sciences, will refine existing upper atmospheric models and apply them to the problem of predicting satellite drag. The primary goal of this Phase 1 project… more
Abstract:Michigan Aerospace Corporation (MAC) proposes to advance NASA's nonintrusive spatially- and temporally-resolved Interferometric Rayleigh Scattering (IRS) technology to perform additional multiple properties measurements in high-speed flows. In particular, an instantaneous nonintrusive Optical… more
Abstract:During this Phase I, Michigan Aerospace Corporation will adapt the design of an optical MEMS seismometer for lunar and other planetary science instrumentation. The optical MEMS based seismometer takes advantage of the high Q of morphological dependent resonances and can be sensitive to a few nano-g… more
Abstract:Gas turbine engine technology is constantly challenged to operate at higher combustor outlet temperatures. In a modern gas turbine engine, these temperatures can exceed the blade and disk material limits by 600¿F or more, necessitating both internal and film cooling schemes in addition to the use… more
Abstract:Turbine engines can significantly reduce fuel consumption by using a recuperator to heat compressor discharge air with heat from combustion exhaust gases. This increased fuel efficiency is offset by the weight and pressure losses added by the recuperator, so these must be minimized, especially for… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Our goal is to develop small molecule inhibitors that target influenza entry. In Phase I, we identified several compounds that selectively inhibit the hemagglutinin (HA) mediated virus entry process. Three HA specific entry inhibitors (MBX494, MBX994, and MBX726)… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The human herpesviridae family contains eight members divided into three subfamilies, designated alpha, beta and gamma. The alpha herpes viruses include herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) and varicella zoster virus (VZV). The… 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.
