Abstract:Target interactions in Fast Ignition, a significant Department of Energy initiative, have proven too difficult to model with standard plasma simulation codes, due to the high densities of the compressed cores and the complexities of the collisional, relativisitic electron transport initiated by… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The Deaf community faces unique linguistic and cultural barriers to optimal health, including access to effective and appealing health messages, a necessary element of behavioral change according to many theoretical mod
els. Our experience producing and… more
Abstract:NASA captures and distributes operational knowledge in the form of procedures. These procedures are created and accessed by a range of people performing many different jobs. These people have different needs for procedure data and different ways of interacting with procedures. We propose an… more
Abstract:We propose an alternative to using Microsoft Word for representing medical procedures that will make the procedures easier to construct and maintain, particularly when there are changes to the hardware or changes to the resulting format of the procedure. We call this alternative an "electronic… more
Abstract:The proposed system is a wide field of view helmet mounted system that will incorporate short wave infrared (SWIR) camera technology with dual imaging lenses placed just above the operator's eyes, and fused with a thermal long wave infrared sensor (LWIR). The Sage Team will take a component approach… more
Abstract:A critical need for the ballistic missile defense system (BMDS) is the determination of the warhead type contained within the intercepted threat. Knowledge of warhead type is essential for effective consequence mitigation and determining the National Command Authority response to the threat. Since… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is to develop methods of sorting metallic and semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNT) in an economically scalable manner and use them to form thin films. The goal of this proposal is to demonstrate the technological and commercial… more
Abstract:The proposed Flat panel X-ray Sources (FPXS) use cold cathode arrays lithographically formed on the exit
window to emit hundred of thousands of e-beams towards a broad X-ray target. The X-rays thus generated emit
out past the cathode arrays and the exit window. Since the X-ray flux is generated… more
Abstract:Coherent Logix, Incorporated (CLX) proposes the Software Defined Radio Waveform Development Kit (SDR-WDK) program to facilitate the development of a SDR development kit based on the Hyper64 processor with an accompanying software development flow to support rapid development and fielding of this… more
Abstract:NASA's exploration, science, and space operations systems are critically dependent on the hardware technologies used in their implementation. Specifically, the performance and deployment of autonomous and computationally-intensive capabilities for space based observatories, orbiters, autonomous… more
Abstract:Coherent Logix, Incorporated proposes the Software Defined Common Processing System (SDCPS) program to facilitate the development of a Software Defined Radio development kit based on HyperX Technology with an accompanying software development flow to support rapid development and fielding of this… more
Abstract:One of the great hurdles to further development and evaluation of nuclear thermal propulsion and power systems is the issue surrounding the release of radioactive material from the fuel during ground testing and its subsequent impact on test facility siting and operation. Therefore, the development… more
Abstract:Integrally Bladed Rotors - IBRs - are an important part of current and future military aeroengines. The use of IBR allows lower weight rotors with decreased drag and improved compressor efficiency. Repair of these parts however is currently problematic. The overarching objective of the Phase II… more
Abstract:Existing Core simulation models used for defense development and evaluation fail to accurately model lethality for many standoff engagement options such as the use of multiple projectiles and thus cannot validly drive new defense technology development. This program will develop new physics-based… more
Abstract:Project Summary/Abstract Project Summary: Harmful concentrations of metals enter the environment in significant quantities via numerous industrial activities. They are not readily detoxified by natural processes and pose lasting environmental hazards. This
project's long-term application enhances… more
Abstract:It is proposed that a Phase I SBIR be conducted to evaluate the feasibility of developing a POSS-based (Polyhedral Oligomeric Silsesquioxanes) coating that performs the multifunctional needs of a conformal coating that actively mitigates tin whisker growth. New conformal coating materials are… more
Abstract:The intent of the proposed research effort is to identify the critical thinking skills that apply particularly to the reasoning and understanding of complex social contexts. The skills set defining this critical thinking capacity would allow soldiers to respond effectively across an array of… more
Abstract:Catastrophic failures in aircraft electrical power systems can compromise the readiness, safety, and capabilities of the war-fighter. In this effort, a multi-physics suite of tools will be developed based upon the successful Phase I research to provide a comprehensive prognostics and health… more
Abstract:The nightmare scenario in HAZMAT transport (or storage) is an incident in the proximity of a densely populated area. This issue is so critical that Congress has, on a number of occasions, considered restricting HAZMAT transportation, routing it around metropolitan areas. While so far such… 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.
