Abstract:Actuators are the primary limiting factor that relegates robots to controlled industrial and military environments and keeps them from becoming the truly useful tools that we hope they will become. Current actuators must be massive in order to provide sufficient strength for real work, requiring… more
Abstract:Most mobile robots today cannot perform significant physical work due to their limited strength and power density. One practical approach to achieving sufficient mechanical strength is through the use of hydraulics. However, the low energy efficiency of current, conventional approaches to mobile… more

Vecna will address this challenging problem by investigating and developing four key desirable characteristics of such systems: that they be declarative,… more
Abstract:The development of actuators for the next generation of robots must not only address the engineering obstacles of power density and efficiency packaged into a lightweight form factor; they must surmount these obstacles using technology that is affordable for commercial users. To meet and exceed… more
Abstract:Human operators must closely monitor video for simultaneous situational awareness and threat assessment. For instance, urban environments in a state of constant activity generate numerous visual cues, each of which must be examined so that potential security breaches do not go unnoticed. The need… more
Abstract:In this Phase I STTR project for MDA, Vectraxx of Glen Allen, Virginia will address the critical problem of dealing with pre-intercept debris fields and launch family clusters as seen by IR sensors. This is an essential element to the ascent phase component of the MDA"s Ballistic Missile… more
Abstract:Future particle physics experiments at the high energy frontier, such as LHC, HL-LHC, ILC, CLIC or Multi-TeV Muon Collider, will all require silicon detectors capable of reconstructing charged particle trajectories with high accuracy in the presence of significant high occupancy. These experiments… more
Abstract:The Navy needs an optical repeater based upon the NGCON (MIL-PRF-64266) because the optical power loss budget on military aircraft is demanding. A bi-directional optical amplifying repeater would address the optical loss issue of connecting a fiber optic link in the aircraft network. Challenges… more
Abstract:Ventions proposes the development of a pump-fed, 2-stage nano launch vehicle for low-cost on demand placement of cube and nano-satellites into LEO. The proposed vehicle uses high T/W and Isp pump-fed engines that operate at chamber pressures>750psi without the weight penalty of high pressure… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Recent studies in animal models demonstrate that an endogenous human intestinal mucin fragment, termed MUC17, augments intestinal cell restitution and enhances healing of experimental colitis, potentially opening a newdoor to effective treatment of ulcerative… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Diabetes has become a devastating epidemic worldwide. Insulin is commonly used as a treatment to help manage diabetes because of its ability to control blood glucose levels, and is in high demand worldwide, but it facesmultiple challenges including adverse… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The purpose of this Phase II is to develop a working prototype of the HADRian tool that can assist SOC (Sensing Operations Center) Operators, the persons responsible for the display of information within an EOC (Emergency Operations Center) COP (Common Operational Picture) during a… more
Abstract:It is expected that the US military forces will be facing many new, unexpected types of mission from combat operations to humanitarian assistance and disaster recovery (HA/DR). To be able to accomplish such missions, the military will require"resilient systems"of all kinds digital,… more
Abstract:VIStology, Northeastern University and BBN are proposing a standards-based solution to seamless insertion of new RF devices and capabilities into multifunction Electronic Warfare (EW)/Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) networks without re
Abstract:ABSTRACT: We propose to develop extremely compact and rugged laser systems for emerging cold-atom-based sensors of time, gravity, and inertial forces. This phase II will provide complete and disruptive cold-atom laser / electro-optic control systems. We will design and build distributed Bragg… more
Abstract:High bandwidth communication links are needed between satellites and ground stations, inter-satellite, and to airborne assets. As data loads increase and satellites available payloads decrease keeping the information flowing becomes even more challenging. In this SBIR program we will design and… more
Abstract:In this SBIR program we will develop, design and build new scanning based micro-ladar sensors with unprecedented small size, weight, and power (SWaP), thereby enabling scanning ladar deployment on previously inaccessible platforms such as satellites. The system will range out to>1 km, have high… more
Abstract:Vescent Photonics proposes to develop a compact laser system and integrate it with a cold-atom micro primary standard developed under the DARPA IMPACT program. In phase I we will investigate performance enhancements resulting from immobilizing the cold-atom sample with an optical lattice formed from… 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.
