Abstract:Traumatic head and neck injuries account for 16-33% of all war-related injuries and are a leading cause of mortality upon evacuation to a definitive care setting. This application is focused on treating one of the most important determinants of outcome from severe head injury, the degree and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Despite advances in the treatment of patients with shock and head injuries, the combination of traumatic brain injury and hemorrhagic shock is the leading cause of death and disability in children and adults in their most productive years. An estimated 1.6… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Traumatic injury and hypovolemic shock are leading causes of death in children worldwide. Rapid, large volume crystalloid infusion and positive intrathoracic pressure ventilation resuscitation strategies often increase morbidity and mortality following hemorrhage… more
Abstract:This innovation uses photochemical cyclopolymerization of polyimides to manufacture ultraviolet rigidizable composites for use in RIS (ridgidizing inflatable) structures. Sunlight initiated polymerization (UV polymerization) has been identified as a promising method for ridgidizing composites for… more
Abstract:Maintenance related activities represent a substantial portion of the Total Ownership Costs of any system. A significant portion of the total maintenance expenditure can be attributed to both direct and indirect (hidden) costs associated with maintenance planning activities. Automation can play a… more
Abstract:Embedded sensors are finding widespread use in military systems, demanding that accuracy be assured for the entire life cycles of these systems. The U.S. Navy ensures the accuracy of shipboard sensors via scheduled calibrations and/or maintenance procedures (a manually intensive process). … more
Abstract:AEPCO has developed plans for a system that will alleviate the vast majority of difficulties associated with supply and sustainment transfers. The name of the system is the Autonomous Sustainment Cargo Container (ASCC) delivery system and its plans and description are on file with the United States… more
Abstract:In order to meet reduced manning and cost goals, existing and future Navy ships are utilizing sensors and other automated technologies to monitor equipment health and provide accurate information to end users. Onboard future surface ships, it is envisioned that maintenance planning will be… more
Abstract:As discussed in the solicitation for this SBIR, EPAS and other current passive ASW sensors have not yet incorporated the use of polarization analyzers to mitigate the effects of high background clutter their imaging systems. It is postulated that proper use of polarization analyzers can reduce 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.
