Such shelters need to be constructed in such a way to minimize stowed volume and payload weight. The structures must also be very durable… more
Abstract:During lunar exploration, regolith is both the major available resource and a substantial obstacle in establishing a long-term presence. The fine surface dust is highly abrasive and can both be a health hazard for the crew and the main contributor to equipment failure. Regolith is also the only… more
Abstract:Large aperture antennas are of interest to NASA for applications in establishing high-speed communication relays for interplanetary missions. Design goals include 20 meter apertures. In order to minimize mission costs at these large diameters, weight must be severely restricted.
Abstract:The lunar surface is to a large extent covered with a dust layer several meters thick. Known as lunar regolith, it poses a hazard in the form of dust clouds being generated by all forms of gas expansions in the high vacuum environment of the lunar surface. This is especially pronounced during… more
Abstract:Aging and durability of aircraft in both the military and civilian sectors are becoming major issues as the existing fleet continues to age. Additionally, the increased use of composite structures in the civilian fleet, such as in the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and the Airbus A380, make the… more
Abstract:Over the next few decades, NASA plans to launch a number of planetary probes to and return the samples to Earth for detailed investigation. Due to the rapid expanse of space exploration, a need has been identified for the proper handling of extraterrestrial samples. Not only must the sample return… more
Abstract:Nitrate is an important nutrient for crop production. Soils with excess nitrate amounts and shallow groundwater tables pose a high risk to nitrate leaching into drinking water supplies. A shortage of nitrate decreases agricultural productivity. Measurement of soil nitrate content is a tedious, time… more
Abstract:Design and evaluate components for a new device for remotely releasing electronic tags that have been attached to marine animals with a focus on a novel approach for the release mechanism. Current methods for releasing tags include corrodible metal pins and mechanical devices for cutting plastic or… more
Abstract:A low-cost fiber-based octave-spanning frequency comb system operating in the mid-IR region is proposed, which is based on femtosecond-Tm-fiber-laser-pumped supercontinuum generation in a mid-IR-transmitting dispersion-engineered fiber. An all-fiber femtosecond mode-locked Tm-doped fiber laser at 2… more
Abstract:Accurate measurement of atmospheric parameters with high resolution needs advanced lasers. In this SBIR program we propose to develop innovative Q-switched high power 2-micron fiber laser with pulse energy greater than 10mJ, repetition rate of 10Hz to 1KHz, and pulse duration of 200ns using… more
Abstract:A GHz-rate phase-stabilized fiber-laser frequency comb system is proposed to be used as a light source for coherent Fourier transform spectroscopy. The system will be developed based on our proprietary glass/fiber technology, which features a low-cost, robust, highly stable, mid-infrared light… more
Abstract:High energy laser can provide a tremendous benefit to the army for area protection against rockets, artillery, and mortars (RAM). There is concern about high energy laser systems potentially causing collateral eye damage due to scattering off of target surfaces. We propose to develop innovative high… more
Abstract:The DOE needs a single-polarization mode-locked high-power 2-micron fiber laser for an advanced laser electron accelerator. The 2-micron laser wavelength allows for larger accelerator dimensions and the acceleration of more charge, compared to the 0.8 micron Ti:Sapphire laser. The other advantage… more
Abstract:The DOE needs long-wave infrared transmitting optical fiber to support remote sensing systems for the detection of nuclear proliferation activities. This project will develop a new class of advanced infrared, transparent, single mode fibers having propagation loss less than 3 dB/m in the 8-12… more
Abstract:The current generation of high-frequency active 3-D acoustic imaging systems presents a challenge to the covert use of Underwater Vehicles (UVs) by Special Forces teams. An acoustic intercept capability is needed to detect active signals before the UV is detected, so that it can vector away from the… more
Abstract:The primary aims and opportunities of the NexGEN Interface are revolutionary improvements to the OneSAF Behavior Composer and associated processes, to enable military personnel to rapidly and easily build or edit useful OneSAF behaviors for their training and operational purposes. Our NexGEN… more
Abstract:Our Game-Interface module for OneSAF directly exploits the NexGEN Behavior Composer Interface module for OneSAF that our Integrated Product Team (IPT) is already developing for DARPA. Key strengths unique to our team's approach enable our near-term creation of appropriate hybrids involving… 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.
