Abstract:In previous research, a specialty solid-state lighting (SSL) device had been developed. A doped Polymer Light-Emitting Diode (POLED) device structure is used, which enables devices to be printed with low capital equipment and operating costs. Although the devices are efficient, thin, flexible, and… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase-II project will analyze the limiting factors in performance and commercialization obtained through printed polymer organic light emitting diode (P-OLED) research and development as well as customer engagement. Utilizing this basis, a set of… more
Abstract:Viscosity and low temperature lubricant characteristics determine turbine engine starting capability, and lubricant motion with respect to the contact surfaces at low ambient temperature. Low ambient temperature influences the oil viscosity and also the variation of its curve shape versus the low… more
Abstract:The proposed research program aims at developing a variable-fidelity software tool set for aeroservothermoelastic-propulsive (ASTE-P) modeling that can be routinely applied to the design of aerospace vehicles. The tool set can be applied to conventional vehicle types as well as hypersonic vehicles.… more
Abstract:The proposed research program aims to develop a physics-based identification, modeling and management infrastructure for aeroelastic limit-cycle oscillations. This infrastructure will be built upon high fidelity state-of-the-art theoretical/computational methods as validated and verified by… more
Abstract:During Phase I, we have conducted proof-of-principle experiments to fabricate exchange-coupled isotropic permanent magnets with SmFeN-Fe4N compositions employing shock wave consolidation technique. We have also successfully synthesized nearly 100% Fe16N2 in bulk form. Under this Phase II plan, we… more
Abstract:This proposal effort is concerned with the development of a novel multidisciplinary optimization scheme and computer software for the effective design of advanced aerospace vehicles. Such vehicles are characterized by unprecedented levels of aero-structural-controls-propulsion interactions, a… more
Abstract:Developing low cost, lightweight materials with high stiffness, that are environmentally safe, low risk/liability, and corrosion resistant is extremely important for the Department of Defense in the current climate of reduced spending and desire for increased performance. Reducing program life… more
Abstract:Developing low cost, lightweight, multifunctional Radiation Hardened materials with high specific stiffness, that are environmentally safe, provide low risk/liability, designable structures is extremely important for the Department of Defense in this current climate of reduced spending. As new… more
Abstract:Flow-through raceways have velocities below that needed to remove solids from rearing areas and thus require intermittent, manual sweeping to remove the solids producing long solid residence times and exposure to mechanical breakage which results in increased phosphorous leaching and poor fish… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project develops a two-stage culture process of heterotrophic microalgae with a high cell density of more than 100 g/L to produce omega-3 fatty acids, specifically DHA, from the crude glycerol produced as a by-product by the biodiesel industry.… more
Abstract:Aerosols represent one of the more efficient methods to distribute biological and chemical agents throughout the atmosphere. Small aerosol droplets can be readily inhaled and easily penetrate deep into the lungs where they lodge in bronchial alveoli. Within the alveoli, chemical and biological… more
Abstract:The abrasive, reactive, and ubiquitous nature of lunar regolith created significant and serious problems during the Apollo moon missions. In this Phase I, Agave BioSystems, in collaboration with Dr. Randy Vander Wal of the Universities Space Research Association, propose to develop next generation… more
Abstract:In completing the Phase I SBIR, Agave BioSystems and the Universities Space Research Association, have successfully demonstrated proof of concept for the use of novel carbon nanotube (CNT)-based structures as next generation smart adsorbents for the adsorption and destruction of potentially toxic… more
Abstract:Deployed armed forces often have to rely on water that is produced from decentralized sources, which presents significant difficulties for assuring the water is free of chemical toxicants. Analysis of these water supplies often requires complex instrumentation that is not practical for field use. … more
Abstract:The use of explosives over the last 100 years has left up to 16,000 military ranges contaminated with highly toxic compounds. A major challenge to the remediation of these ranges is identifying the location of persistent explosives residues. To meet this challenge, Agave BioSystems in… more
Abstract:The recent wave of mass casualties plaguing the public safety community showed that the incident commander s situational awareness of the first responders can be quickly and easily overwhelmed. At emergency scenes, with the overburdened first responders and unreliable communication infrastructure,… more
Abstract:The U.S. Air Force is looking for innovative technologies providing an autonomous helicopter sensor-display system for brown-out landing conditions. In response AGNC proposes to develop and document an innovative Accurate Predictive 3D Terrain Modeling (AP-3DTM) system and software toolsets. 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.
