Abstract:Increased littoral deployment of submarines and other naval vessels has seen an increase in biological fouling and clogging of vessel cooling systems resulting in costly cleaning procedures and curtailed operations pending completion of cleaning procedures. To address and reduce the increased… more
Abstract:A need exists for inexpensive, disposable, broadcast capable biological sensors that also provide site weather conditions. The state-of-the-art does not meet the need both in terms of biological sensor cost/size and lack of a low-cost deployment system. ADA proposes under this three-phased SBIR… more
Abstract:The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project seeks to develop advanced ultracapacitors for hybrid electric vehicles (HEV).

Abstract:We propose to develop innovative nonlinear adaptive filtering techniques to simultaneously mitigate the effects of narrowband interference and multipath distortion for the 25 KHz Continuous Phase Modulation (CPM) MIL-STD-188-181B waveform for submarine communications and other DoD applications. Our… more
Abstract:Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are one of the most valuable emerging technologies used to improve the survivability and lethality of our Armed Forces. Current advances in the alternative energy industry have created interest in integrating new technologies into small UAVs. This integration would… more
Abstract:Low temperature (550 C) SOFC will be developed and characterized with a combination of impedance spectroscopy and high resolution microscopy (FIB, SEM, TEM, XEDS, EELS, SAED, CBED methods). Initial focus will be on a low temperature samarium doped ceria electrolyte and low temperature cathodes to… more
Abstract:Damage sustained on board a US Naval vessel is a serious situation. Rapid situational assessment of a damaged compartment by a rugged, hand-deployed, situational sensor would be advantageous in coordinating a response, mitigating additional damage to the ship and crew, and preserving the ship's… more
Abstract:Environmental adaptation is critical to the success of vital ASW missions. Environmental adaptation is particularly important for confident and effective multi-static active ASW in challenging littoral waters characterized by a high degree of uncertainty and variability. Acoustic sources are… more
Abstract:Marine mammals are often found in areas where US Navy ASW test operations are carried out. Several events have raised levels of concern that sonar emission could be causing deleterious impacts on marine mammals. For instance, in March of 2000, a mass stranding of beaked whales [NOAA report Dec 20,… more
Abstract:UUVs will perform important, force multiplying missions such as intelligence, surveillance, mine countermeasures, tactical oceanography, navigation and anti-submarine warfare. The missions they perform will be autonomous, low risk, and have low observability which will reduce risk to our forces. It… more
Abstract:This Phase 2 project will develop and integrate intelligent controller technology into the Navy's Undersea Warfare-Decision Support System (USW-DSS).

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.
