Abstract:The resolution of several instruments now used to measure materials structural dimensions is limited by the neutron flux at the sample. Material lenses have been used to improve this situation, but are limited by absorption and small aperture. Larger apertures and lower absorption lenses are needed,… more
Abstract:NASA has proposed several missions to land a craft on an asteroid and potentially to return samples from it. While large asteroids in the asteroid belt can exhibit a significant amount of gravity, most near-earth asteroids are small and show a surface gravity of less than 0.1% of earth. Landing,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Topical fluorides have been the mainstay in the prevention of dental caries for decades. However, topical fluoride alone is not enough to thwart tooth decay in high-risk populations. The purpose of this Phase I application is to determine the technical and… more
Abstract:In this proposal, we propose to demonstrate and build a 1.55 micron single frequency high energy and high peak power fiber amplifier by developing an innovative Er-doped gain fiber with large core diameter and high gain per unit length. 1.55 micron single frequency high energy and high peak power… more
Abstract:In this proposal, we propose to demonstrate and build a widely tunable, narrow linewidth, single frequency fiber laser near 2.05 micron by developing an innovative Ho-doped single mode fiber. Such near 2.05 micron fiber laser is needed for coherent lidar and interferometric fiber sensing. Based on… more
Abstract:Telecommunication 850 nm band is an attractive choice for the physical layer and has been used for the vast majority of the optical local area networks (LANs) by taking advantage of comparatively low-cost silicon P-I-N technology for optical receivers as well as high power GaAIAs semiconductor… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Coherent imaging systems have the capability to provide high-resolution 3D imagery for target identification at stand-off ranges. These systems require relatively short pulse width, transform-limited linewidth pulsed lasers with high pulse energy to illuminate the target of interest. Here… more
Abstract:Our Fused-Realities-Assessments-Modules(FRAM) enables innovative new levels and types of automated quantification strategies for combining human and system performance in real-time for fused performance monitoring and after-action-review purposes. FRAM accomplishes this by fusing output of normative… more
Abstract:Westscape Nursery proposes a Phase I project to establish a solution to the problem of rapid cheatgrass infestation in the western U.S. Preliminary studies have shown the ability of a naturally occurring elemental compound used in precise formulation to totally suppress and selectively control… more
Abstract:We propose to develop a sensitive and selective workload classifier, called PHYSIOPRINT (Physiology and Performance Research Integration Tool), that will ultimately operate in real time on multiple physiological signals (EEG, EKG, EOG, EMG) acquired and processed by our wearable and wireless X24… more
Abstract:We shall continue to develop a sensitive and selective mental workload assessment software, called PHYSIOPRINT (Physiology and Performance Research Integration Tool), that derives the workload measures in real time from multiple physiological signals (EEG, EKG, EOG, EMG) acquired by our wearable and… more
Abstract:Contemporary warfighters are tasked with maintaining a constant state of readiness and military leaders are increasingly reliant on various simulation or serious gaming platforms. Simulations are also useful in addressing the needs of warfighters suffering from mild TBI or other trauma, replacing… more
Abstract:The focus of this effort is to take Advanced Coherent Technologies, LLC's (ACT's) current multispectral/hyperspectral (MSI/HSI) system, developed in the first two Phases of this SBIR, and miniaturize the onboard processor and improve the onboard processing algorithms. Miniaturization is… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Landing gear systems are one of the more problematic subsystems on USAF aircraft. The most common landing gear failures are caused by mis-servicing of the gear, resulting in much higher loads (even for a"normal"landing events or cause excessive fatigue damage than originally… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Amorphous composite (AC) coatings are an alternative coating material to the existing High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) Tungsten Carbide Cobalt and Tungsten Carbide Cobalt Chrome (WC-Co and WC-Co-Cr). The purpose of AC coatings are to eliminate spalling on Low and High Strength Steel (LSS… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Temperature control has been a major concern during High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) processing since its introduction to the aerospace industry. Typically, substrate temperature must not exceed 300oF to prevent heat damage/ tempering of steel alloys, and even lower temperature… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: There is currently no repair process to restore aluminum landing gear cylinders inner dimensions. The magnetron sputtering System (MSS) process has the potential of restoring outer cylinders IDs dimensions. This technology is similar to ion vapor deposition (IVD) aluminum, and meets the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Electrolytic Hard Chrome (EHC) has been used in both civilian and military aerospace as the hard wear resistant coating of choice for both high strength and low strength steels. Due to tighter regulations there is a current requirement to eliminate the use of EHC on landing gear… more
Abstract:Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) proposes to develop a thermal management system for cabinet cooling that focuses on the use of silent and primarily passive cooling methods. The passive cooling methods selected have inherently low thermal resistances and will allow the ultimate heat sink to… more

Abstract:ABSTRACT: The purpose of the proposed SBIR program is to develop a thermally enhanced, separable thermal mechanical interface (STMI) that aims to significantly enhance heat transfer by providing a direct thermal path from the high power density components to the heat sink. In the current… more
Abstract:Solar water heaters are an efficient means to harvest energy from the sun to heat water for domestic use (i.e. bathing, washing dishes, etc.). However, the current solar water heating systems cost approximately $133/ft2 and have a payback period of 7-10 years, including incentives and rebates,… 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.
