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
Abstract:Autonomous vehicles are becoming more and more integral to our nation's defense. A DoD object is to free humans from direct control and move towards supervisory control of multiple, autonomous assets. Achieving this objective will require significant advances in decision support and supervisory… more
Abstract:NASA plans to use intelligent planetary rovers to improve the productivity and safety of human explorers. A key challenge in using robots for human exploration is orienting remote personnel about robot operations, as latency and communication constraints make eyes-on monitoring impractical. Summary… more
Abstract:It is often difficult to create autonomous robotic capabilities that match what can be achieved via teleoperation. Even though it is mechanically possible for a humanoid robot such as Robonaut 2 to perform complex coordinated tasks such as tying a knot, exchanging objects between end effectors,… more
Abstract:The essence of the problem is to allow military intelligence and operations staff to pose"tell me about"questions concerning an entity, and obtain a finished information product. There are 4 main technical challenges / sub-problems: a) Question content modeling: The question needs to be… more
Abstract:Existing clinical decision support systems (CDSS) for TBI/PTSD are not well integrated with clinical pathways, terminologies/codes, and/or electronic medical records. Further, these CDSS do not leverage the latest computing technologies such as cloud computing, speech recognition, mobile computing… more
Abstract:We propose a next-generation cloud-based social media visual analytics disaster response system that will enable decision-makers and first-responders to obtain real-time analytics (both descriptive and predictive) for situational awareness and early-warning. Social media sites like Twitter and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Air Force"s High Velocity Maintenance (HVM) initiative aims to better emulate industry"s high daily rate of touch-labor maintenance and rapid return-to-service. One barrier to HVM is scheduling of the maintenance. Currently, once an aircraft arrives at the depot, it spends… more
Abstract:Williams-Pyro Inc. proposes to develop a connector design series that drastically improves upon impedance, electromagnetic shielding, survivability, corrosion resistance, and connector diameter relative to cable diameter. The connector series will be designed for cables transmitting various DC and… more
Abstract:The eXtreme wrist computer (Xwatch) Program leverages significant previous and on-going investment in processor, RF, rapid product development, integration and miniaturization efforts by Coherent Logix, Incorporated. The proposed Xwatch program has been structured to work closely with industry to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Warfare is changing at increasingly rapid rate. What was once advanced technology has become simple and inexpensive for our adversaries to obtain. These contemporary truths complicate the U.S. military"s training requirements and result in training solutions that often lag behind… more
Abstract:Research suggests that: (1) orbital debris has reached the point that, even with no future launches, collisions among large-body debris will lead to unstable growth in debris, and (2) removing as few as five large objects each year can stabilize debris growth. For large-body active debris removal… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The ability to find and track individuals using volatile organic compound (VOC) signatures would greatly enhance US military capability to defeat asymmetric threats. This program will develop the capability to predict the transport and dispersion of VOCs in both interior spaces and the… more
Abstract:One of the key pieces of hydrogen fueling stations and hydrogen fuel vehicles are dependable detectors that are needed to ensure safe handling and use of hydrogen within transportation infrastructure. Hydrogen is a colorless and odorless gas, and its flame is virtually invisible in daylight. We… more
Abstract:The primary obstacle to readily implementing energy-saving LED lighting systems in established commercial and municipal lighting networks lies in dealing with the heat that is generated by high power LEDs. To produce the light output that is needed in commercial luminaries, high power LEDs are… more
Abstract:As outlined in the document, Technical Topics Descriptions, FY 2012, Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Programs, July 2011, page 137: Sn-117m has gotten a lot of interest in the last few years. It has favorable nuclear properties for both… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes an analog verification coverage system. Today well-accepted formal and simulation-based techniques exist to capture and measure test coverage for digital integrated circuits, but there is no corresponding commercial capability… more
Abstract:Superconducting radio frequency (SRF) cavities for use in the International Linear Collider (ILC) are currently fabricated by electron-beam welding of press-formed half-cell cups. Cavities produced in this method experience weld-related defects that limit accelerator performance and increase the… more
Abstract:Ascendant Engineering Solutions (AES) proposes to develop a Large Displacement, Tuned Deck Simulating Fixture for Medium Weight, Shock Isolated Equipment (LTMS) to address the Navy SBIR topic N123-158 - Innovative Approach to Low Cost Shock Testing Fixture for Medium Weight, Shock Isolated Equipment… 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.
