The game will… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a novel secondary battery platform based on a lithium sulfide-carbon composite cathode and a silicon anode that demonstrates high energy density and long cycle life. Today, mobile devices require faster performance and smaller… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project enables an innovative low cost approach to reaction bonded silicon carbide (RBSC). RBSC is a preferred material for mechanical seals, which are critical, costly components in many major manufacturing lines. The high cost of RBSC limits… more
Abstract:The requirement for cost effective manufacturing and metrology of large optical surfaces is instrumental for the success of future NASA programs such as LISA, WFIRST and IXO(now NGXO). OptiPro's UltraForm Finishing (UFF) is a sub-aperture compliant wheel and belt type polishing process for… more
Abstract:Future missile systems will abandon the traditional hemi-spherical shape for shapes resembling a tangent Ogive. An ogive shaped dome has better aerodynamic capabilities than its spherical counterpart. This enables the missile to fly faster, farther, and with more accuracy while also increasing its… more
Abstract:Conformal sensor windows have the capability of increasing the performance of an optical system while decreasing the aerodynamic drag. In many cases, these windows might conform to the platform they reside in. They may also be made out of optical materials that are resistant to the elements, thus… more
Abstract:Aerodynamically shapes missile domes have many benefits over traditional spherically shaped domes. To correct for optical aberrations presented by this non-traditional shape, free form corrective optics are required between the dome and the image sensor. For this example, the corrective optics shape… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will investigate the application of a novel tissue engineering approach to the fabrication of animal products, in particular leather. The approach relies on the automated deposition of conveniently prepared multicellular units into a… more
Abstract:Nearly three billion people, half the worlds population, still cook on inefficient solid biomass fires, which emit gases and particulates that are both poisonous to humans and damaging to the environment. Four million deaths are attributed to indoor air pollution from biomass cooking fires every… more
Abstract:With rising energy costs and finite energy supply, Energy Conservation Measures are becoming increasingly important in the United States. This is particularly true in regard to buildings, which account for 40% of the total energy used in America. Currently, energy use in buildings can be assessed… more
Abstract:The benefits of using mobile devices for conducting business come with a range of security threats to sensitive information both in motion and at rest. To meet this need ATC-NY will develop Myelin, a cross-platform mobile app ecosystem with intrinsic security. Myelin uses a base technology of secure… more
Abstract:Cyber systems remain susceptible to attack and compromise despite the best security efforts. There are two growing trends in the research community to address this: a paradigm of prioritizing missions over individual network resources, and a push for resilient systems capable of fighting through… more
Abstract:If a computer system suffers a cyber attack, any compromised component that is simply reinstalled will remain vulnerable to the attack that damaged it; so replacements should provide equivalent services implemented differently. This defense can be applied proactively, to create a"moving… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The secure, automated dissemination of information across security domains requires accurate, complete, and standardized releasability markings. Existing sensors, information sources, and data processing tools do not all produce the required markings, nor can they always follow the… more
Abstract:Several mission-critical Navy applications are written as single-threaded Component Object Model) COM applications. They do not receive any benefits from the recent trend in computer architecture that emphasizes concurrent execution of multiple threads. ATC-NY will build Typhon, a plugin for Visual… 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.
