er procedures. When used in concert with… more
Abstract:This proposal describes a novel implementation of a V-band tunable filter. Preliminary simulations indicate that a 2% bandwidth can be achieved with insertion losses of approximately 1 dB from WR-12 waveguide flange to flange (no de-embedding) and an unoptimized tuning range of 80-85 GHz. Larger… more
Abstract:This proposal effort is concerned with the development of a novel multidisciplinary optimization scheme and computer software for the effective design of advanced aerospace vehicles. Such vehicles are characterized by unprecedented levels of aero-structural-controls-propulsion interactions, a… more
Abstract:Crisis decision-making is difficult and error-prone because it usually involves high time-urgency, physical and emotional stress, chaotic conditions and poor data availability / quality. This SBIR project will investigate, develop and employ a hardware/software system to support key crisis decisions… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Arterial spin labeling (ASL) has proven its ability to non-invasively measure cerebral blood flow (CBF). However, widespread use of this promising technique has been prevented by its long acquisition time due to the in
herently image low signal-to-noise ratio… more
Abstract:Automated Rendezvous and Capture (AR&C) is a critical United States technology gap. AR&C is identified as a critical enabling technology for future NASA Exploration and DoD missions including NASA's CEV, operation and commercial cargo re-supply to ISS, lunar transfer vehicle assembly and MARS… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will prove out the concept that appropriately doped single crystals of lanthanide oxides (i.e. Yb:Sc2O3) can be grown via a commercially viable hydrothermal process. These crystals will enable the development of new high powered diode pumped… more
Abstract:Developing low cost, lightweight materials with high stiffness, that are environmentally safe, low risk/liability, and corrosion resistant is extremely important for the Department of Defense in the current climate of reduced spending and desire for increased performance. Reducing program life… more
Abstract:Developing low cost, lightweight, multifunctional Radiation Hardened materials with high specific stiffness, that are environmentally safe, provide low risk/liability, designable structures is extremely important for the Department of Defense in this current climate of reduced spending. As new… more
Abstract:"The beneficial effects of earthworms on soil structure, chemistry, microbiology, and crop
yield are well demonstrated. Advanced Prairie, Inc. has developed a method of harvesting and
encapsulating earthworm cocoons to make them available for mass market distribution. A
previous SBIR proposal… more
Abstract:The development of an Inter-Turbine Burner (ITB) for improving the part power performance of small gas turbine engines is proposed. An Inter-Turbine Burner is a second combustor placed between the gas generator exit and the power turbine to "reheat" the engine gas stream before it enters the power… more
Abstract:Rotor induced flow modeling is a central part for almost every aspect of rotorcraft simulation and analysis. There are, however, challenges in the accurately predicting the unsteady rotor wake transportation, especially when it interacts with aerodynamic disturbances from nearby aerodynamic bodies… more
Abstract:Rotorcraft shipboard operations have been an essential but demanding aspect of modern maritime activities. The shipboard rotorcraft are strongly affected by the unsteady ship airwake and the dynamic ship motion. Significant progress has been made in analyzing these effects on the shipboard… more
Abstract:While new technology is making flight simulators more affordable, validating the simulators for training applications remains costly. This is mostly due to the inefficiency and inconsistency of the subjective validation approach currently used. Performing trial and error iterations based on the… more
Abstract:With the increasing demand for higher performance rotorcraft that will carry heavier payloads, travel longer distances, and hover at higher altitudes in warmer climates, more advanced and novel rotor designs have become necessary. The fixed configuration blade design has reached its optimum… more
Abstract:This SBIR is to develop a technical basis for augmenting the current ADS-33E-PRF to accommodate the needs of improving its applicability to shipboard rotorcraft and heavy lift helicopter flying qualities specifications.

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.
