Abstract:This project will develop and evaluate a new process for converting algal biomass into renewable drop-in fuels. Renewable fuels are liquid fuels made from biomass that are a direct substitute for the standard, petroleum- derived fuels. For example, renewable diesel has a higher heat of combustion… more
Abstract:The release of chemical and biological agents on a large scale urban environment would be devastating. The amount of waste generated during such an event would be comparable to a tornado ripping through a town. Building materials, furniture, office materials, building insulation, wood structures… more
Abstract:Gasification technologies convert coal and biomass into synthesis gas feed streams that can either be used as a fuel for highly efficient power generation cycles or converted into value-added chemicals and transportation fuels. However, coal-derived synthesis gas contains a myriad of contaminants… more
Abstract:Converting in-situ resources into propellants, energy storage reactants, or other useful products at the site of exploration, known as in-situ resource utilization (ISRU), instead of transporting these supplies from Earth can significantly reduce the cost and risk of human exploration while at the… more
Abstract:TDA Research, Inc. is developing a compact, low power, Next-Generation Exercise Device (NGRED) that can generate any force between 5 and 600 lbf. We use a closed loop control system and a servo motor to smoothly and accurately simulate the gravitational and inertial loads of lifting a weight on… more
Abstract:The increasing frequency of International Space Station (ISS) egress operations results in chemical contamination of the spacecraft environment. Among the most important contaminants are propellant residues (such as hydrazine) and their decomposition by-products, as well as coolants such as ammonia… more
Abstract:A spacecraft thermal control system must keep the vehicle, avionics and atmosphere (if crewed) within a defined temperature range. Since water is non-toxic and good for heat transport, it is typically used as the coolant that circulates within the crew cabin boundary. This loop then interfaces with… more
Abstract:TDA Research, Inc. and the University of Colorado at Boulder will team together to develop a responsive sequestration coating for chemical warfare agents. The coating will be easily applied to surfaces where it will cover and contain chemical warfare agents on vehicles or other hardware known or… more
Abstract:Approximately 5-6% of military injuries involve some form of major peripheral nerve injury with little chance of spontaneous healing. Currently these injuries lead to major impairment of voluntary muscle function in the limbs and extremities, making tasks of walking, reaching, grasping, etc. very… more
Abstract:TDA Research, Inc. (TDA) proposes new materials with exceptionally high absorbance in the ultraviolet that are designed to be used as obscurants to defeat the dual-band tracking systems used in modern missile systems. The Navy seeks advanced obscurant materials that will protect military assets such… more
Abstract:Decontamination of chemical and biological threats demands a very reactive solution. It is ideal to generate the decontaminants on-site: the activated decontaminant is highly reactive and quickly destroys chemical and biological warfare agents; prior to activation the ingredients can be safely… more
Abstract:It is challenging to detect CBRN weapons production facilities that are hidden in residential and industrial neighborhoods. Once the weapons are manufactured, they will be sealed and removed from the site of production, so developing techniques to reveal the presence of the weapons will likely be… more
Abstract:Advances in biodegradable materials have allowed the development of a variety of resorbable medical devices that do no need to be removed at the end of their service because they degrade within the body into not toxic by-products. However, devices that contain electronic components are still nearly… more
Abstract:Due to its favorable combustion properties, aluminum is the material of choice in metalized nanoparticle formulations for energetic materials; however, the full potential of aluminum nanoparticles has not been realized due to the presence of a nascent oxide layer (Al2O3) that surrounds the… more
Abstract:Marine-grade aluminum alloys (5XXX-series) are increasingly being used in naval combatants because they have high strength and high corrosion resistance. In order to decrease weight, these corrosion resistant marine-grade aluminum alloys are not painted with the conventional primer and low solar… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The principal aim of this project is to obtain proof-of-concept for a new nanotechnology-based sensor material for rapid and sensitive fluorescence detection of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychloro biphenyls (PCBs). Simple, cheap and safe… more
Abstract:The respiration of fresh fruits and vegetables (FF & amp;V) converts oxygen from the surrounding air into carbon dioxide, moisture and ethylene. While ethylene is used under controlled conditions as a ripening agent, the presence of even small amounts of ethylene gas in shipping and storage… more
Abstract:This project will develop a catalytic process to manufacture a new renewable and degradable bio-plastic that could be used to replace polyethylene in many applications, including those that constitute a large part of land and ocean litter such as bags, food packaging and disposable tableware.
Abstract:The production of turpentine in the U.S. exceeded 301,000 tons in 2004 (Romney 2004) and the production of resin acids exceeded 800,000 ton in 2003 (Romney 2004), which also includes the production from directly tapping trees (e.g., gum turpentine, gum rosin). There is growing demand for… more
Abstract:Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV) such as Fire Scout could increase its utility to the fleet by operating as a node in an airborne star network. Such a system would need to support full-two way communication with up to six other nodes for transfer and relay of data, imagery, command and control with 360… more
Abstract:This effort develops system concepts, a suite of algorithms and software for detection and tracking of moving surface targets (small boats, periscopes, and land vehicles) and dismounts that extends across the open water, surf zone, and beach. This suite of algorithms and software will perform… more
Abstract:The implementation of Sense And Avoid (SAA) capabilities on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) present a particular challenge in that collision threats can be either cooperative or non-cooperative. Cooperative aircraft are here defined as being equipped with ADS-B that broadcasts that aircraft"s… more
Abstract:RDRTec Inc. and Lincoln Laboratory propose to establish the feasibility and develop the plan for an extensible analytic framework and methodology to address unanticipated maneuver encounter modeling, collision risk estimation, and ownship maneuver logic. With the widespread introduction of Unmanned… more
Abstract:The proposed work is to develop innovative Maritime Situational Awareness Aids (MSAA) specifically targeted for small boats in dense maritime traffic environment to assist in developing actionable information to support the determination of hostile action and/or hostile intent.
Abstract:The proposed work further develops and supports transition of a long integration mode for radar detection and tracking of small maritime targets at high grazing angles in the presence of highly variable Doppler spectra characteristics that occur in the littoral sea clutter environment. Radar… 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.
