To overcome the barriers associated with spark… more
Abstract:This proposal outlines Mainstream"s successful Phase I feasibility demonstration related to the fabrication of hierarchical hybrid nanomaterials for oxygen storage vessels. These vessels exceed the volumetric and gravimetric storage capacity of an oxygen cylinder by 245% and 170%, respectively.… more
Abstract:Mainstream has developed an active cooling system that can provide a cool/dry environment to workers in enclosed protective clothing/equipment. The technology is lightweight, comparable to a small backpack in size, and will improve working conditions so that heat stress is no longer a concern for… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Hexavalent chromium, a common additive in many manufacturing processes known for its leading anticorrosive properties, is extremely harmful in low doses. A convenient and accelerated test method to evaluate emerging hexavalent chromium alternatives is needed. Mainstream proposes the… more
Abstract:Cryogenic cooling offers significant improvements to the operation of several types of electronic systems, including computers, IR detectors, and solid-state lasers. However, commercially available liquid-nitrogen generators do not meet the size, weight,
Abstract:Navy vessels, such as littoral combat ships (LCS), operating in littoral waters are subject to local and federal regulations with respect to disposing of wastewater. These strict regulations prohibit discharging of greywater in many areas, therefore the greywater generated by the galley, scullery,… more
Abstract:With the thermal and noise requirements experimentally demonstrated in Phase I, Mainstream will focus Phase II on transitioning the functional system developed in Phase I to a production prototype. The Phase II effort will start with the definition of requirements for the thermal management system… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Mainstream Engineering Corporation (MEC) proposes developing a pyrolytic solid waste remediation system (py-SWRS) for processing mixed waste at small contingency base camps. The proposed py-SWRS unit is an updated and improved version of a portable pyrolysis reactor already under… more
Abstract:This proposal details the approach for developing smart and enhanced SCBA equipment. Current SCBA devices use adsorbents to remove CO2; however, they generate heat as a byproduct of reaction which ultimately leads to hot and humid breathing air and mask fogging. An near zero-heat generation CO2… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Air Force regularly uses eddy current and ultrasonic NDI equipment which can be configured with a wide range of battery chemistries. Many of these battery chemistries, which include toxic heavy metals, are detrimental to the environment and can be difficult and costly to dispose of.… more
Abstract:The increasing penetration of MEMs devices into the commercial market has lead to an increasing demand for micro-sized electrical energy storage devices to interface with a support them. Electrochemical double layer capacitors hold significant promise as
Abstract:This proposal describes a technology system called POLIS (Pattern of Life Integrated System), which combines research in stochastic graph matching with logic-based semantic graph techniques to provide intelligence analysts superior capabilities for performing activity-based intelligence … more
Abstract:As stated in the topic,"The decision environment in which the Anti-Submarine Warfare Commander must operate during threat prosecution is characterized by severe time pressure, complex, multi-component decision tasks, and rapidly evolving andchanging information and situational state."There… more
Abstract:There is an urgent need for an instrument that can quickly measure the concentration of Plutonium and other Actinides mixed with Uranium in liquids containing dissolved spent fuel rods for process control applications. Parallax Research, Inc. proposes to develop an x-ray spectrometer capable of… 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.
