Abstract:Large format lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries with ineffective cell isolation are potentially hazardous when exposed to conditions such as crush, overcharge, discharge, high temperature and internal short circuit. The recent Boeing incidents and similar incidents in the automotive industry underscore… more
Abstract:The Navy Ohio Replacement Ballistic Missile Submarine Program is a major endeavor aiming at designing and building a new class of 12 ballistic missile submarines (SSBNs) to replace the current force of SSBNs. Current Ohio-Class SSBNs are armed with Trident ballistic missiles or Tomahawk missiles if… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Fires initiating in engine nacelles and dry bays are the most common causes of loss of aircraft. However, since the Montreal Protocol restricting the production of Halons, a replacement has not yet been accepted by the aircraft survivability community despite numerous testing programs.… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Abstract (No proprietary info): Thermal interface materials (TIMs) constitute an essential part of thermal management which is quickly becoming the limiting factor in high power, high functional density, and increasingly small-sized electronics for future U.S. Air Force (AF) platforms.… more
Abstract:Thermal batteries are primary batteries containing solid cathodes and anodes sandwiched around an inorganic solid electrolyte that remains inert under ambient conditions until melted using pyrotechnic materials. Today"s SOTA thermal batteries rely on complex, heavily engineered systems with… more
Abstract:Access to clean water is a global problem that has led to the development of multiple desalination techniques. All techniques strive to reduce the cost of desalinating water to provide clean water in a cost effective manner. Capacitive deionization (CDI) is a new technique that can reduce the cost… more
Abstract:Aqwest LLC proposes to develop a phase change material (PCM)-based thermal energy storage (TES) to enable"rightsizing"of environmental control units (ECU) and improve overall efficiency through reduced peak loads, more stabilized ECU operation, and off-peak thermal energy storage. The… more
Abstract:IFE offers to tap almost unlimited sources of inexpensive energy. This new energy source would free the U.S. from the dependence on hydrocarbon fuels, the use of which produces green-house gases (GHG). The proposed EPDL laser driver would greatly advance the ICF maturity and its transition to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Cloud ice water content and cloud liquid water content strongly affect radiative transfer of solar energy to the atmosphere, and hence need to be taken into account in any modeling of the weather and climate. This proposal advances the poorly-known area of sensitivity of GPS RO to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Air Force seeks to improve the accuracy of orbit specification and of 72-h orbit predictions beyond present capabilities. Thermospheric neutral density and satellite ballistic coefficient strongly impact satellite drag estimation, which is a leading source of error in orbit… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Mid-wave infrared (MWIR) imagers that possess more integrated on-chip capabilities are desired for military applications such as miniature seekers for strapped down weapons or for small unmanned air systems (SUAS). High operating temperature (HOT) MWIR detectors have raised the operating… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The proposed effort will perform a feasibility study on developing a multispectral scene projector from 0.4µm to 5µm, using liquid crystal on Silicon (LCoS) spatial light modulators (SLMs). BNS has successfully developed scene projector technology using this approach previously. A… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: A SWIR 3D imaging LADAR architecture is proposed in which it shares the aperture with a FLIR sensor. To enable this combined passive and active sensor system, wide angle non-mechanical beam steering (NMBS) would be implemented at the exit window of the gimbal. Due to the large steering… 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.
