Abstract:The overall objective of the two phase SBIR program is to develop a hypergolic leak detector (HLD) that can be mounted on the outside of a missile canister which is able to detect rapid changes in concentration that signal leaks of hypergolic rocket fuels and oxidizers. In Phase I Applied Nanotech,… more
Abstract:Scientists have proposed reducing greenhouse gas emissions by capturing combustion gases from power plants and injecting the carbon dioxide into geologic subsurface structures, where it would remain sequestered for geological periods of time. Demonstration projects are being funded by DOE to assess… more
Abstract:Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI) proposes to develop a novel field ionization technology to produce a deuterium ion (D+) current for a neutron source or gamma-ray source enabling fast switching, high repetition rate and high yields. Carbon nanotubes (CNT) have a high aspect ratio structure (they are… more
Abstract:Electrical contacts are a critical part of photovoltaic technology. For these contacts, there is an increasing drive to develop improved processes that differ from current approaches based on physical vapor deposition (PVD) and photolithography. In particular, it would be desirable to develop… more
Abstract:Large-scale pyrolysis of biomass for energy production must aim for high throughput in order to meet economies of scale. For this reason, many of the fluidized bed and cyclonic pyrolysis reactors being developed are designed for throughputs of hundreds or thousands of tons per day of biomass. The… more

Abstract:Safe and reliable launch and recovery of small offboard assets is important to the concept of operations for the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS), as they are deployed to complete a wide range of missions. The LCS design specification requires launch and recovery of watercraft to be completed within… more
Abstract:The propagation of acoustic signatures from vehicles, aircraft, boats and artillery can have a significant impact on military operations. Specifically combatants need to reliably detect enemy acoustic signatures while at the same time concealing their own. The physical propagation environment,… more
Abstract:Active sonar clutter usually appears on a display as an amalgamation of point scatterers that exhibit both object and individual reflective and kinematic behavior. We propose to demonstrate the feasibility of constructing a realistic active sonar clutter model based on a few generalized concepts to… 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.
