Abstract:Objective of the proposed research effort is to design, build and test an experimental AJ antenna for GPS receiver and Iridium transceiver functionality and to develop novel signal processing techniques without compromising the AJ suppression capability of either of the two systems. The AJ antenna… more
Abstract:Sonar performance is highly dependent on the performance and positional accuracy of its acoustic sensors. Today"s arrays are populated with sensors built to strict tolerances to minimize channel to channel differences and precision mounted to enable the exact location, speed, direction of… more
Abstract:ASSETT proposes an additional Phase II effort to extend its previous work using the Architecture Assessment Tool (AAAT) to provide a quantitative Life-Cycle Assessment Tool (LCAT) to support the decision processes of the NAVSEA Submarine Maintenance Engineering, Planning and Procurement (SUBMEPP)… more
Abstract:Aurora proposes to radically advance the concept of distributed satellite systems through a combination of technology development to enable precision 3-axis control and a demonstration of a distributed CubeSat system capable of performing a militarily significant geolocation of signals mission. … more
Abstract:With the retiring of the shuttle fleet, up-mass and down-mass to ISS are at a premium. The space station itself has a limited lifecycle as well, thus long-term and/or high-risk development programs pose issues for science 'return on investment', if the technology cannot be adequately… more
Abstract:Aurora Flight Sciences, with Agent Oriented Software, proposes to develop a contingency management system that dynamically performs decision-making based on both sensed and predictive information to carry out adaptive missions and maintenance. This system will mirror the human nervous system, having… more
Abstract:In order to mitigate the increasing threat of multi-raid short and long range missile attacks from hostile countries and non-state terrorist groups on the U.S. and its allies, advanced, cutting-edge technologies for ballistic missile defense must be developed to ensure their protection and deter… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Aurora proposes to develop a"Proprioceptive Wing"concept designed to measure and feedback wing forces, thereby enabling"load servoing", or modulation of control surfaces to achieve desired wing moments and/or forces. By implementing a feedback loop on the actual force… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Certain remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) use propulsion systems derived from commercial systems not designed for harsh environments. Operating experience and reliability data obtained in benign environments does not necessarily apply to engines operated in harsh environments, thereby… more
Abstract:Aurora Flight Sciences, working with Optical Air Data Systems (OADS), proposes to develop a retrofit system to perform the functions of the current Fire Scout / UCARS landing system while eliminating or minimizing dedicated communication links and/or specialized equipment on the ship deck.… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Phase II program will further develop the Carbon Nano Material (CNM) technologies developed during Phase I to improve EMI shielding, impact resistance, mechanical properties and embedment of conductors. The efforts culminate in two full scale test articles. Because the CNM… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Small unmanned aerial vehicles are a useful military asset and new systems must provide greater endurance and stealthier operation. A problem is that current propulsion options provide either long endurance (internal combustion) or quiet operation (electric) but not both. Hybridization… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Collecting information in an urban environment is done in non-combat operations on a daily basis by local law enforcement by officers"walking the beat."Officers are present on our streets. Officers become familiar with areas of the city by constantly understanding and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This proposal targets a specific mission of NIOSH and the current SBIR solicitation: hearing loss prevention for mine workers. The main objective of this work is to reduce the noise radiated by Continuous Miners (CM). Since CMs are responsible for about 30% of… more
Abstract:Azure Summit's approach to this problem is to develop a TICE interference cancellation device that can be inserted between any SIGINT antenna and SIGINT receiver without requiring modifications to existing designs. Azure Summit brings several different technology approaches and tools to bear… more
Abstract:Dropsondes are one of the primary atmospheric measurement tools available to researchers. Current dropsondes are deployed with a free fall parachute trajectory, allowing no flight path control and requiring the deployment aircraft to fly close to the target. Adding a guided range capability to the… more
Abstract:Loss-Of-Control-In-flight (LOC-I) has been a longstanding contributor to fatal aircraft accidents. However, recent high-profile incidents, including Colgan Air Flight 3407 and Air France Flight 447, have underscored the importance of mitigating the LOC-I risk. In both of these incidents, it is clear… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Falls and fall-related injuries in seniors are more common than strokes and can have equally serious consequences; they represent a signicant health care problem with a substantial associated morbidity and reduction inoverall mobility and function.

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.
