Abstract:The U.S. Army has a need for cheap, high quality nanosilicon powder. With similar energy density and better aging effects than nanoaluminum, silicon is an excellent candidate for use a metal nanofuel. In Phase I, Systems and Materials Research Corporation (SMRC) demonstrated a scalable method for… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Each fastener that is installed during the aircraft assembly requires a hole to be drilled, and those holes filled with either rivets or threaded fasteners. To add difficulty, most fasteners must have sealant applied to the hole, and interference fasteners must be inserted using an… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Corrosion is a serious problem affecting the longevity, safety, durability, and affordability of military and commercial aircraft. Despite strict implementation of MIL and ASTM standards for aircraft Outer Mold Line (OML) coatings, corrosion is frequently observed during maintenance… 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:Payload stored in multiple all-up-round canisters (MACs) critical to Ohio- and Virginia-class sub missions is susceptible to damage from excessive shock and vibration loading. TRI/Austin proposes to investigate a state of the art lateral missile support system to resolve this issue. A preliminary… more
Abstract:Texas Research Institute Austin (TRI/Austin) is proposing to build an energy supply system for the Tray Ration Heating System (TRHS) that will eliminate the use of JP-8 fuel as an energy source to heat the rations. There are three operational conditions when the TRHS needs to be supplied with energy… more
Abstract:Marine forces of the future will be significantly more agile, lethal, mobile, and survivable. The current limitation on tactical wheeled vehicles is at the tire/terrain interface. Tactical wheeled vehicles need the ability to adapt to rapidly changing terrain conditions and missions by developing a… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: TRI/Austin and the University of Texas at San Antonio have teamed to develop and demonstrate a complete set of modules and a framework for structural reliability analysis for the Air Force. These modules will be developed with a scriptable interface to enable the structural engineer to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Fuel tanks for aircraft commonly utilize a hexavalent chromated polyurethane coating acting as corrosion protective secondary containment for fuel. The coating service range is from -65 to 250oF. New effective coatings free of hexavalent chromium corrosion inhibitors and offering rapid… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: TRI/Austin proposes to develop an ultrasonic (UT) based non-destructive evaluation (NDE) system that can detect and characterize the tailored surface grain size distribution in aerospace nickel and titanium alloys. Many metals are now engineered via heat treating processes to adjust the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Reliability of weapon systems after periods of storage dormancy has long been a significant concern throughout military history. The trend in missile systems over prior decades has been toward greater sophistication, complexity, and longer periods of dormancy while in transportation and… more
Abstract:To address the Navy"s need for an innovative manufacturing processes and materials to produce a shower stall that is affordable, modular, corrosion resistant, water tight, and can be built with the minimal number of standardized components to reduce the production time and overall life-cycle… more
Abstract:High moisture permeation rates through hose wall materials are a primary failure mode for the design currently used in fat line towed arrays. These premature failures are extremely costly in terms of repair, and the loss of sensors in the towed array impacts submarine mission capability. The high… more
Abstract:This proposal documents Phase II efforts of Tietronix Software Inc. as it relates to the combination of a multi-platform game with graphic novel elements in support of computer science education. Aegis is a software application that combines the playabili
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The United States is increasingly reliant on space-based technologies for surveillance, communications, and navigation. However, our satellites face significant threats from failures, space weather, and orbital debris and must become more survivable. A key component to more survivable… more
Abstract:Increasing the autonomy of unmanned vehicles potentially reduces operator workload and cognitive load. Realizing the promise of autonomy however, is difficult when deploying in environments with mobility and visibility challenges, enemy threats, risks of endangering civilians, and limited… more
Abstract:Mixed human-robot teams have potential to reduce risk to soldiers during missions while matching or improving performance over human-only teams. Responsibility to achieve mission goals can be shared between humans and robots to improve mission success and operational timeliness. Dynamic shifts of… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: We propose a lamp for ultra-high speed photography according to the specifications of the solicitation. BENEFIT: The lamp design can be used for any ultra-high speed photography, particularly where the item under test is explosive or passes at sufficient speed to cause an over-pressure… more
Abstract:We propose a meta-model tool for developing a Shipboard Energy Use and Analysis system consisting of a shipboard component to capture energy use data interfacing with a shore-side analysis system. The proposed approach interfaces with existing shipboard and shoreside information systems for… 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 National Academy of Sciences issued a report in February 2008 detailing isotope replacement priorities in the interests of national security [National Research Council, 2008] . 137Cs used in self-contained irradiators was identified as the single most dangerous isotope in the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Electronic Warfare (EW) will be a critical aspect of potential future conflicts. After years of facing threats without significant EW threats, many EW operators are left with atrophied skills. This lack of real-world experience, combined with the rapid pace at which new threat… more
Abstract:The main objective of this project is to fabricate flexible low cost rugged and reliable high efficiency solar cells out of thin crystalline Silicon. This project will target prototypes of large area high efficiency (~ 22+%) PV cells made from flexible ultra thin (sub 50µm thickness)… more
Abstract:In 2000, shale gas represented just 1 percent of American natural gas supplies. Today, it is 30 percent and the percentage keeps increasing. The technology to drill and fracture the shale formations is now exported to the rest of the world, increasing the national oil and gas reserves in many… 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.
