The highly heterogeneous nature of fiber reinforced composites and their inherent porous… more
Abstract:Present supplies of rainbow smelt, both for live bait and human consumption, are provided, almost exclusively, by commercial harvest of wild populations. This project will develop alternative sources of rainbow smelt for the market and eventually reduce the harvest of wild populations. This project… more
Abstract:Advanced reentry vehicles desire extended time durations in oxidizing environments, at temperatures in the range of 3000°K. State of the art nosetip materials utilize a high density carbon/carbon (C/C) composite that has a carbide center core. Intermat has produced nosetip billets with a variety… more
Abstract:Many rural older adults are often forced to leave the homes in which they have raised families and lived for decades because they can no longer physically, financially, or emotionally maintain their homes. Until now, little attention has been focused on technological tools, social structures, and… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a novel recombinant vaccine for the control of viral nervous necrosis (VNN) of cultured Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) in New England and Atlantic Canada. The Atlantic cod nodavirus causes VNN which is characterized by the… more
Abstract:The goal of this project (Phase I ¿ III) is to develop a vaccine for the control of diseases in Atlantic cod caused by L. anguillarum and A. salmonicida. To accomplish this we have established the following sequential technical Phase I objectives: (1) identify bacterial growth conditions suitable… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The BROAD OBJECTIVE of this project is to produce a family of urgently needed quality controls for use in molecular Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis) diagnostic tests. Quality controls are required by good laboratory practice and federal regulations to… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of a lateral field excited (LFE) acoustic wave immunosensor for the detection of the pathogenic bacteria, E. coli, in drinking water. Current methods of testing drinking water for E. coli have several major… more
Abstract:The goal of this Phase I effort is to investigate the feasibility of extracting at least 1.0 microgram of bacillus spores from the environment and presenting these spores in real-time to an FTIR spectrometer for detection. The identification of bacterial spores using FTIR spectroscopy has been… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase I project proposal addresses the development of technology for cost effectively upgrading existing shipyard panel line stiffener-to-plate welding to a low-distortion hybrid laser process. The Phase I project establishes the technical and financial viability of the Laser/Gas Metal… more
Abstract:Lobster is sold today on a non-branded commodity basis with little regard for consumer desires and needs. The opportunity to build a Maine lobster brand is threatened by new Country of Origin regulations since today basic meat extraction practices take place primarily in Canada. Creating a brand of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Our objective is to develop a new biomaterial, a salmon-derived fibrin gel, which will bridge injured CMS tissue, support and promote axonal sprouting and growth, and deliver neurotrophic factors and cells. In Aim #1 we will test the efficacy of salmon-derived… more
Abstract:The Modular Mission Planning Toolkit (MMPT) will support multiple autonomous undersea vehicles (AUVs), multiple environmental databases, and multiple warfare scenarios. The toolkit provides a plug-in modular framework to facilitate the creation of planning mission scenarios and will be able to… more
Abstract:Tex Tech Industries has developed a through thickness reinforced (3-D) hybrid ballistic fabric that has recently been introduced into the ballistic armor market. Phase I testing found that for 9mm and .22 FPS projectiles, the hybrid fabric was 9 to 13% be
Abstract:Ground based interceptors will benefit from the use of a dual color focal plane and wideband seekers for improved target acquisition and target discrimination. Zinc Sulfide (ZnS), uncoated and anti-reflective coated, has been under evaluation as a "bolt-in" replacement window for the THAAD seeker… more
Abstract:The Air Force has a need for an innovative solution to help parachutists that become trapped in trees or wires lower themselves to the ground safely and easily. The current personnel lowering device being used by the Air Force is bulky and inconvenient to use. Wizbe Innovations is proposing to… more
Abstract:Our Random Obfuscating Compiler2 ("ROC2") automated toolset will protect DoD HPC executables running on Beowulf clusters from reverse engineering or compromise. Preliminary DoD HPC research is often conducted on university Beowulfs, which are also used by unscreened researchers and students. The US… more
Abstract:We propose to develop ROC2 to protect software from reverse engineering or compromise by automatically inserting strong Protect/Detect/React functionality into binaries by obfuscating executables, providing randomly different variants of the same binary, and permitting the software only to run on… more
Abstract:A key component of missile interceptor vehicles is the divert and attitude control system (DACS), which is responsible for maneuvering the interceptor vehicle to its target. A vital component to the DACS is the thruster, which provides effective control of vehicle divert. Solid propellant DACS… 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.
