The primary focus of the Phase I effort will be demonstrate the… more
Abstract:In this STTR project, we propose a novel computational technology for analyzing millimeter and submillimeter wave scattering from complex and electromagnetically extended objects and environments. The crux of our formalism lies in a technique for rapidly calculating and coherently adding fields… more
Abstract:EMAG Technologies, Inc. (Ann Arbor, MI) is responding to a US Special Operations Command solicitation for a Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) certified Ka-Band antenna. The solicitation requests the development and integration of a WGS-certified, low-visibility, small-form-factor commercial and military… more
Abstract:The objective of this SBIR project is to develop a man-portable S- and C-band communication antenna that can simultaneously track and communicate with multiple nanosatellites in several planes. We propose a low-cost phased array antenna whose particular design could be adapted to a variety of… more
Abstract:The proposed SBIR Phase II project is to develop miniature light-weight high-functionality multi-sensor systems that meet the requirements for prognostics and health management of military equipment, and their life cycle management and conditionbased maintenance. The systems integrate temperature,… more
Abstract:The Marine Corps in support of the war fighter has identified the need to increase the mobility of the HMMWV platform to conform to the ORD. As operational theaters constantly change and require the HMMWV platform to operate in soils that have a RCI less than the current vehicle VCI the overall… more
Abstract:In order to effectively manage hazardous environments, one requires a detailed knowledge of those materials that pose a threat to valued assets. Through both detector characterization and system modeling, we demonstrated the feasibility of using a Compton Camera based on inorganic scintillators as a… more
Abstract:Exhaust systems have a significant impact on performance of the vehicle, from the automotive perspective, to its acoustic signature. The soldier wants all the power available for mobility, yet has to pay attention to the noise signature that can be detected by human and sensor devices. Military… more
Abstract:Auxiliary power units (APU) offer potential to improve operational efficiency and provide significant tactical advantage for surveillance missions conducted from land vehicle platforms. Current installations have resulted in higher than acceptable noise levels, adversely impacting the ability to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Helminth infections are responsible for severe health problems worldwide, in both human and animal populations. It is estimated that 2-3 billion people, mainly from rural and impoverished regions of the world suffer from disease due to parasitic nematodes;… more
Abstract:So-called tabletop accelerators are a holy-grail of high energy/high field physics and, if developed, as indicated by the Department of Energy in the Accelerators for America report, will spur a revolution in particle physics discoveries and also in medical treatments. This is because planned… 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.
