Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project will build upon the data compiled during Phase I in which Selenium Ltd. worked with university and commercial partners to develop a novel anti-biofouling technology to be deployed in water filtration membranes and membrane spacers. The… more
Abstract:The problems with current pure niobium (Nb) superconducting radio frequency (SRF) cavities are that manufacture is expensive; cavity performance is often poor; and manufacturing results are inconsistent. These problems stem primarily from three factors: (i) the high cost of pure Nb, (ii) a poor and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This proposal"s objective is for Silicon Space Technology (SST) to develop a high-performance radiation-hardened design platform for building radiation-hardened Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) with a gate count>10M and Total Ionizing Dose (TID) performance>1… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: AutoDrills at Lockheed Martin drill over 12,000 holes in the wing skins and understructure on each F-35 aircraft. To ensure these holes get the correct fasteners, a technician must measure the depth of each hole and mark the dimension on the skin adjacent to the hole. This procedure is… more
Abstract:Systems and Materials Research Corporation (SMRC) proposes combining its Manufacturing Technology and Materials Science expertise to address NASA's Advanced Food System Technology needs. Using progressive 3D printing and inkjet technologies, SMRC will design, build, and test a complete… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Systems and Materials Research Corporation (SMRC) proposes to produce energetic nanomaterials to be used as additives in hydrocarbon based jet and liquid rocket fuels. Using our extensive experience in nanomaterials synthesis, processing, and incorporation, SMRC will synthesize or modify… more
Abstract:Recent advancements in high speed signal processing technology offer the possibility for significant efficiency of Electronic Attack (EA) Digital RF Memory (DRFM) systems. Typical DRFM technology utilize an RF translation to baseband, Radio Frequency (RF) sampling, storing digitized samples into… more
Abstract:Abstract: The goal of this SBIR effort is to provide the next evolution in broadband Digital RF Memory (DRFM) based products. This includes providing extremely wide instantaneous frequency bandwidths, improving spurious performance, increasing false target outputs, cost savings, use of COTS… more
Abstract:The research team proposes to expand the capabilities of an existing microwave nondestructive evaluation (NDE) system that measures thickness, quantifies dielectric properties (e.g. loss tangent, phase shift, dielectric constant, conductivity), and detects flaws in composite materials. The… more
Abstract:Issues with electro-explosive device (EED) initiators on interceptors have caused the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) to investigate novel ideas to increase EED reliability. TRI/Austin proposes designing, fabricating, and testing novel electro-explosive devices utilizing magnetic saw initiators to… more
Abstract:Methods have been recently developed by TRI/Austin Inc. that permit accelerated life testing (ALT) exposures at lower temperatures which are more realistic and that reduce the risk of introducing failure mechanisms that are not representative of actual service conditions. The feasibility of using… more
Abstract:A polymeric based hull protection system will be developed. The development will take three approaches. In the first approach, plates of Aluminum 5086 will be bonded to the hull in appropriate locations. In the second approach, polymeric energy absorbing layers will be applied to the hull in… more
Abstract:Texas Research Institute Austin (TRI/Austin) first developed non-conductive coatings (NCC) for marine connector applications in the mid 1990"s. These coatings are applied by a plasma spray process, and the patented technology has reduced the cost of ownership for the U.S. Navy by reducing down… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Elastomeric O-rings provide a critical sealing function for the hydraulic system of extended service high altitude unmanned aircraft. These new mission requirements translate into service temperatures as low as -100oF and as high as 275oF, in the presence of red hydraulic fluid. The… more
Abstract:Recently, the F-35 program experienced fatigue cracking in a low pressure turbine blade inside the F135 engine from recrystallization (RX). These problems cost the program time and money, strain the political capital necessary to sustain a large weapons program, and undermine the confidence of… more
Abstract:In Phase I we designed and evaluated a thermal stereo prototype; however, rather than focusing on a nighttime-only deliverable in Phase II, we propose to combine our Phase I experience with stereo thermal sensing and our decades long experience with traditional outdoor stereo sensing to deliver… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Satellite intelligence information is being used increasingly for real-time operations. This requires satellites that can be quickly tasked for new objectives and that can respond to opportunistic situations and external threats. Unfortunately, today's satellites rely on ground… 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.
