Abstract:ABSTRACT: Air Force fighter aircraft are equipped with a comprehensive sensor and communications suite that provides situational awareness, command and control and network-centric warfare capabilities. As these technologies advance, the need for avionics cooling capacity increases. Transition to a… more
Abstract:We propose a modular data flow architecture for processing video and still image data. This system will be able to support both the high speed demands of live streaming data and the high volume demands of archival data processing. The system provides detailed control of threading and supports… more
Abstract:Oceanit will develop a handheld analyzer using disposable cartridges that provides a coagulation profile. This profile will be comparable to bench top systems such as thrombelastograph (TEG) and rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM).
Abstract:Mandates for biofuels have resulted in the significant increase of biodiesel production in rural communities. Hawaii's Jatropha biodiesel production will produce nearly 650-700 kg of residues, consisting of Jatropha seedcake and fruit hulls for every metric ton of seeds harvested for oil… more
Abstract:Tuna are among the most highly valued fish worldwide. Due to this value and high demand, tuna are being fished beyond sustainable levels in many parts of the world. Replacing or supplementing wild catch with hatchery raised tuna makes sense, but this is technically difficult with current technology.… more
Abstract:We propose to develop a wideband 2-12GHz Quasi Circulator Microwave Monolithic Integrated Circuit (MMIC) that is less than 40% of the cost of conventional circulators. The Phase I effort will perform the preliminary design of the Quasi Circulator.
Abstract:This phase II effort will build upon the feasibility demonstration of phase I. We will build an electrically tunable absorptive notch filter to enable CREW and Blue Force Communications. Two designs will be built, covering the 225-500MHz and 1350-1850MHz bands.
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This project concerns the research, development and demonstration of a novel MDO methodology that bridges the gap between conceptual and high-fidelity representation of air vehicle design by integrating engineering MDO principles, computer science software engineering, and biological… more
Abstract:The objective of this proposal is to develop a modification kit for the AN/SSQ-53 series of sonobuoys that will enable them to have a precision guidance and glide capability. The quick modification and installation kit will feature a slip on wing and tail assembly along with a precision guidance… more
Abstract:The accurate estimation of real space object (RSO) motion is subject to the complex interaction of gravitational forces, non-conservative drag terms and variable solar radiation pressure. Currently many operational algorithms rely on quasi-linear models with Gaussian-Input-Gaussian Output (GIGO)… more
Abstract:The accurate tracking of resident space objects (RSO)s depends on the rapid estimation of orbits using the knowledge gained from sparsely sampled observations of satellites under the influence of interacting gravitational and drag effects. Examples of scenarios operating within this environment… more
Abstract:A detailed design is proposed to compare one and two mirror, parabolic and aspheric optics to achieve high numerical aperture, high-throughput, sub-micron resolution from 200 to 800 nanometers. An optimization phase will follow for the concept(s) that best satisfy the requirements. Predicted… more
Abstract:Pukoa Scientific proposes developing the "Species and Habitat Environmental Protection through Electro-optical Recognition and Detection" (SHEPERD) system to provide a capability for continuous day/night surveillance of fauna on large expanses of land such as Edwards AFB. SHEPERD is an automated… more
Abstract:Recently, there has been a tremendous worldwide interest in the commercialization of energy efficient, environmentally friendly, hydrogen fuel cell powered vehicles and devices. One of the key challenges in the development of fuel cell technology for these applications is the problem of onboard… more
Abstract:Apple snail (Pomacea canaliculata), a highly invasive pest affecting wetland crops in 18 countries including the U.S., is listed as one of the 100 Worst Global Invaders. One study showed that due to its voracious appetite, present value damage from the snail could cost Philippine rice production as… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase II project will catapult open ocean mariculture far offshore, away from the restrictions caused by competing user groups, site lease requirements and mooring restrictions, by developing the technology for Velella ? an untethered, open ocean… more

Abstract:Early childhood dental caries represents the most common, and possibly the most commonly overlooked, chronic childhood disease in the United States. National health leaders recognize that families with young children living in rural communities face significantly more barriers to sustaining positive… more
Abstract:Self-aware systems have three essential properties: they build empirical models of their own performance; they use those models to inform optimal plans of action; and they continually refine their models and plans based on the outcomes of their actions. Although engineers routinely build some degree… 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.
