Abstract:The U.S. Navy has significantly improved its operational capabilities in littoral and near-shore seawater which has resulted in the need to achieve much better pre-treatment of the seawater withdrawn from the often turbid and debris-filled shallow waters for cooling and onboard desalination systems.… more
Abstract:In this Phase I SBIR, Firehole Technologies will develop proof-of-concept modeling framework for a multiscale physics-based modeling tool for predicting foreign object damage in ceramic matrix composites (CMCs). We will accomplish this by adapting the core technology, multicontinuum theory (MCT),… more
Abstract:Sheep ranching and wool production have been a part of our country & #8223;s rural heritage for more than a hundred years, with small and mid-sized ranches serving as the backbone of our country & #8223;s sheep operations. Presently, small operators account for more total ewes than larger… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: In order to significantly advance the fidelity and capability of current computational engineering tools, algorithms, techniques, and software which map effectively to emerging massively parallel hardware architectures must be developed. The objective of this project is to investigate and… more
Abstract:This proposal seeks to develop a practical and economical design tool, first in two dimensions, and subsequently in three-dimensions, for optimizing helicopter rotor configurations for dynamic stall alleviation. The approach will consist of defining a target unsteady load pro file for a pitching… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project addresses a new approach to robotic mobility. Over the past decade, robots have become an increasingly important component of human existence. While the introduction of mobility technologies have allowed robots to migrate from manufacturing… more
Abstract:A Mars ascent vehicle (MAV) uses solid rocket motors to propel soil samples into orbit, but the motors cannot provide steering. Flexseal TVC control is planned for the first stage while hydrazine thrusters will be used for spin stabilization of the second stage. This approach is heavy and results… more
Abstract:A powerful team of researchers from Northwestern University and MKS Technology has been assembled to develop a portable ultratrace level sensitive sensor for chemical warfare agents. The SERS technology will be developed and evaluated at Northwestern University while the materials and portable… more
Abstract:Rural community schools are faced with a growing number of Latino English language learners who have lagged behind in terms of academic achievement, and have school dropout rates near twice those of native English speakers. These Latino ELLs need interventions that teach target vocabulary in an… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will determine the feasibility of a novel ultrasonic non-destructive method for detecting and characterizing defects such as fatigue cracks in metals. Existing ultrasonic methods have difficulty detecting cracks in the presence of the… more
Abstract:Advanced helmet-mounted displays (HMD) have been proven to improve the safety and success rate of warfighters in combat situations. These HMD systems provide pilots and warfighters with enhanced situational awareness and augment their abilities to fulfill their mission objectives. However, current… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This SBIR Phase I project will prove the concept for a low-cost, point-of-care system for real-time diagnosis of candidemia (fungal infection of blood). Hospital-acquired infections occur in ~10% of the patients in crit
ical care facilities in the US, and Candida… more
Abstract:In the proposed program, Firehole Technologies, Inc. will adapt Helius:MCTT, its industry-leading software product for composite failure-progression analysis of large structures, to the specific problem of simulating damage accumulation after impact or other initial imperfection. In parallel, the… 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.
