Data collected by such sensors, such as the wide area motion imagery (WAMI) systems, however poses computational challenges to existing visual analysis algorithms… more
Abstract:To achieve the goal of finding radar signal waveforms for supporting target information and deducing sensor-independent attributes, we propose to use a novel chaos-based orthogonal radar signal waveform with matched-filter-like (or adaptive) pulse compression processing for improving target… more
Abstract:To meet the Air Force's need for composite calibration standards that could be used interchangeably for calibration of different type of NDE equipment used in the Air Force for composite NDE, X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) proposes an innovative methodology for developing composite NDE… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: To perform on-airplane weld repairs of the F-22 titanium frames and forward and aft booms is highly desired, but currently not practical due to the required high temperature thermal stress relief process. An alternative is to apply the vibration stress relief scheme, which is… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Aircraft fuel cells are flexible rubber-coated fabric enclosures for the containment of fuel within aircraft cavities. The overall envelope dimensions and locations of interface fittings and attachment elements such as lacing ferrules and hanger baskets are critical to the proper function… more
Abstract:X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) along with Iowa State University (ISU), is developing a low-cost, hybrid ultrasonic-radio frequency (RF) sensor (HURFS) nondestructive evaluation (NDE) system to assess most structural issues while simultaneously providing feedback on the layer thickness and RF… more
Abstract:Many emergency cricothyrotomy kits have been developed in an attempt to simplify this potentially life-saving medical procedure. However, none of the existing kits perform noticeably better than the standard surgical kit. The standard kit itself has led to a reported failure rate of 33% when… more
Abstract:High power pulse weapons have been proposed for decades. Prototype lasers have had some success in destroying surface and airborne targets. High power, high efficiency laser diodes are now available to pump the lasers but they need large amounts of power and energy storage. The instantaneous power… more
Abstract:Land Sea Air Autonomy, Mission Motors Company and NWUAV Propulsion Systems propose the development of a hybrid all wheel drive off-road motorcycle. The motorcycle will be a series hybrid motorcycle driven by dual independent electric motors. The motorcycl
Abstract:Under this SBIR program, Lakota Technical Solutions, Inc. (Lakota) will develop the Semantic Cloud Cognitive Concept Mapping (SC3M) technology for Concept Map development from Resource Description Framework (RDF) data stores. This technology provides the ability to: (1) develop concept maps from a… more
Abstract:Near-shore, littoral surface tracking is challenging due to the dynamic and inhomogeneous sea surface clutter as well as a diverse and dense target environment that leads to incomplete, non-contiguous, intermittent, and degraded tracking ability of any single sensor. Composite tracking provides a… more
Abstract:Battlefield Telecommunications Systems proposes to build low delay low complexity lossless compression software framework and hardware prototype to be integrated in the telemetry system of a target vehicle test bed. The proposed compression algorithm is specially designed for target vehicle… more
Abstract:It is estimated that 20 percent of returning forces from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars are afflicted with PTSD or major depression. In the last year alone, over 400,000 military veterans have been diagnosed with PTSD. Among troops still in the military, experts estimate that one in five has… more
Abstract:The proposed SBIR phase I project will demonstrate a ultra-small, low-power, low-cost solution for detection of toxic gases and particulate matter
(PM) in air. Firefighters are exposed to various toxic gases and PM both during active knock-down and overhaul phases of fire operation. Four-gas
Abstract:The proposed project will demonstrate high-frequency (0.5 5 GHz) operation of novel 2-dimensional semiconductor molybdinum disulphide (MoS2) based field-effect transistors.

Abstract:The vetting process, at FMCSA, is used to identify new entrant carriers with an affiliation to existing or defunct carriers which had safety fitness issues (chameleon or reincarnated carriers). Currently, the vetting process uses
only data available within FMCSA. The current vetting process is staff… more
Abstract:The Materials Genome Initiative seeks to accelerate the pace of discovery and deployment of advanced material systems. To accomplish this goal, global stakeholders including materials labs, universities and standards bodies have collaborated on open initiatives and teamed with large corporations to… 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.
