Abstract:There is a need to reduce the cost and improve the reliability of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) and their supporting infrastructure to enable FCEV competitiveness. Many reliability problems stem from plastic and elastomer seals employed in hydrogen systems that leak and degrade as a… more
Abstract:Hstar proposes a mobile, advanced, agile, and adaptable Mission Module handling (A3M2-Hand) system which is compatible with Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) Mission Modules and common to all LCS configurations. Hstar"s innovative approach separates the lifting and transporting of the Mission Modules… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase I Proposal addresses the need for a low-profile, broad-band, high- performance, shear-mode tonpilz transducer that can operate at deep depths. In one approach we add a special suspension system to the Van Tol/Meyer tonpilz that allows operation at submarine depth with only a small… more
Abstract:Next generation sequencing technologies are allowing researchers to rapidly and accurately interrogate the genomic content of microbiomes. Advances in our understanding of the human microbiome are likely to lead to the use of next generation sequencing as a diagnostic tool to identify the existence… more
Abstract:BioSensics LLC, in partnership with the Center for Advanced Orthopaedic Studies at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, will develop the shoulder injury risk assessment (ShIRA) software tool for a wide range of activities. The injury risk criteria and exposure assessment models will be developed… more
Abstract:Military helmet systems increase the likelihood of low and high-severity injuries, but the additional risk of neck injuries associated with Head Supported Devices (HSDs) has not been quantified. It is necessary to determine safe and tolerable limits of HSD mass, spatial distribution around helmet… more
Abstract:This program will accelerate transitioning of high-throughput versions of JENTEKs MWM Array eddy-current sensors and GridStation impedance instruments to the U.S. Navy. The proposed systems will have between 350 and 600 fully parallel impedance channels. With greater data acquisition speed from each… more
Abstract:Multiple major pipeline failures have been caused by seam weld defects not detected by available ILI technology [August 16, 2013 WSJ]. Phase I will demonstrate a game changing capability to deliver internal and external corrosion mapping and seam weld crack detection in a low-cost tool that… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: LongShortWay Inc, Boston University, and Applied Communication Sciences propose to develop a dynamic multi-sensor learning system that can adaptively detect target types and activities and schedule sensors to optimize the detection rate BENEFIT: Improved detection rate, increase field… more
Abstract:In the USA there are 15 synchrotron and free-electron-laser facilities, funded primarily by the Department of Energy (DOE); and 52 similar facilities in other countries.

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.
