Abstract:ADA Technologies, in collaboration with SCUBAPRO, proposes to develop an ultra-high-pressure SCUBA system capable of supplying Navy divers with vastly increased air capacity to allow longer submersion time. This system employs multiple small composite cylinders and a custom first-stage pressure… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The stable and reliable operation of megawatt-class, high-temperature power electronics is critical for military aircraft operations. In particular, military aircraft emphasize mission capability as one of the primary objectives, thereby making reliability of power systems components one… more
Abstract:We aim to develop Artificial Intelligence (AI) software that is generalized across entity-level simulation systems and can be used to generate behaviors in training simulations that are both contextually and tactically realistic. The near-term goal for Phase I is to define and develop a concept for… more
Abstract:Water heaters use about 16% of the energy used in the typical home. This is an unnecessary financial burden on most home owners and an unnecessary burden on US energy supplies. Currently, the high cost of solar hot water systems discourages alternatives to Natural gas, Propane and electric water… more
Abstract:In recent years, the need for highly reliable, durable and non-intrusive systems for monitoring the health condition of naval structures becomes more and more recognized. Of particular importance is the condition based maintenance of Navy rotating machinery (motors, generators, pumps, gear systems,… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Phase II will leverage the success of Phase I, as well as integrate advances from internal programs, to scale up development of mid-bandgap (1.4 eV) chalcopyrite-based PV. We will optimize chemistries of the device, as well as enable increased temperature for reduced the defect density by… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Ionospheric scintillation and TEC are required by the IORD. We propose a GPS Autonomous Micro-Monitor ("GAMMA") that makes measurements of Ionospheric scintillation and TEC. GAMMA will be remotely deployable, such as on an ocean buoy or in a battlefield. It will send data to the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The ionosphere has significant effects on DoD radio systems. The Air Force needs electric field measurements in order to nowcast and forecast ionospheric behavior. SBIR Topic AF112-083"Electric Field Instrument for Cube- or Nano-sized Satellites"called for the development… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Air Force requires accurate knowledge of the ionospheric environment in order to mitigate ionospheric impacts on vital radio-based systems, including communications, navigation, and surveillance systems. Current DoD capability for the specification and forecasting of the ionosphere… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The DoD requires accurate real-time knowledge of ionospheric variability in order to reduce one of the biggest error sources inherent in the use of critical systems such as Over the Horizon Radar (OTHR). OTHR is particularly susceptible to traveling ionospheric disturbances (TID"s)… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Air Force and other DoD organizations require accurate knowledge of the ionospheric environment to understand and predict its impacts on vital radio-based systems, including communications, navigation, and surveillance systems. The DoD has placed requirements in the IORD-II document… 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.
