High integration… more
Abstract:Improvements in silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology have resulted in development of monolithic chip designs for radiation image sensors and particle detectors by facilitating the use of the handle silicon layer for the detectors and the SOI layer for the readout circuits. Unfortunately, even the… more
Abstract:We propose to implement a novel countermeasure against the exploitation of integrated circuit hardware. The proposed countermeasure is applicable to both FPGAs and ASICs, increases design obfuscation and promises to block embedded hardware exploits. It also is fully compatible with virtually any… more
There is a valid scientific data paradigm where no loss of data can be tolerated. However, transmission of raw data requires unacceptable bandwidth and storage resources such that the net data received is uncomfortably low. Lossless data compression can be used to preserve all data with… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase I project will convert (recycle) CO2 into useful and economically important by-products (i.e., industrial feed stocks) using a nano crystalline anatase (TiO2) photo catalyst with a high surface area. Anatase is a well known photo-catalyst. The co-founders of the Nanospring platform… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase I project will develop a program to utilize uranium tetrafluoride (DUF4), a processed byproduct from the creation of nuclear energy, to create SF4, SF6, and NF3. SF4 and SF6 would be created by mixing DUF4 with sulfur oxides and halides (and oxygen for SF6) at varying temperatures,… more
Abstract:The proposed effort in Phase II is to develop, produce, and demonstrate a prototype inspection platform and complementary damage modeling tool as a complete nondestructive evaluation solution referred to as the X-Ray Corrosion Detection System (XCDS). This system will be based on the state of the… more
Abstract:Sentient will develop an enhanced prediction of gear tooth surface fatigue life with rigorous analysis of the tribological phenomena that contribute to pitting failure. Advanced mixed-elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) models that are capable of fully describing the tribology of the mating gear… more
Abstract:Current life prediction methods, such as AGMA, are empirical-based, deterministic in nature and cannot consider the effects of gear manufacturing processes, material microstructure and lubrication on fatigue strength. The estimated life is as good as the information entered by the user and it… more
Abstract:The Arnold Engineering Development Center has witnessed vibration anomalies on facility equipment that have raised concerns about possible catastrophic or costly failures. In response, AEDC is seeking an advanced, comprehensive condition monitoring system to provide accurate and timely health… more
Abstract:Sentient will adapt its existing prognostics and health management software and architecture, called SAGE, to Navy unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). SAGE is particularly well-suited for UAVs because it already incorporates a centralized architecture, where data storage, signal processing, data… more
Abstract:Sentient will develop enhanced fretting fatigue analysis software with rigorous consideration of surface roughness effects in the stick/slip phenomena and fatigue. This will be coupled with an analysis of the stresses and resulting degradation in the material. Sentient will utilize diagnostic data… more
Abstract:Gear tooth surface fatigue (pitting) is common precursor failure mode that leads to excessive gear vibration, liberation of debris particles that damage ancillary components (e.g. bearings), and serves as crack initiation sites that lead to eventual catastrophic tooth failure. Current gearbox life… 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.
