Abstract:This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project is to develop a novel technology for the large-scale sorting of single walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) by diameter and electronic type. An… more
Abstract:Naval Special Warfare (NSW) teams often use underwater vehicles (UVs) for clandestine transport into highly sensitive littoral areas. The current sonar suites on the existing vehicles do not include a system for detecting and identifying active sonar transmissions, making the vehicle and the SEALs… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project tests the feasibility of using a highly innovative polarized multi-wavelength light extinction spectroscopy approach for on-line non-destructive characterization of coated nanoparticles and nanoparticle agglomerates. From extinction… more
Abstract:Strawberries are a very valuable fruit crop in the United States, ranking fourth in production. The state of California leads this charge at 1.4 billion pounds of strawberries, 83% of the nation's total, worth some $800 million (2001). Production costs are estimated $25,000 per acre, of which… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I project is to develop a novel biomimetic technology for tactile sensing in which all sensors, connections and circuitry are protected from hostile environments. This project will refine existing designs into commercial products and it will test the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Tactile feedback is essential for dexterous use of the hand. Physical therapists working to rehabilitate hands with neurological damage understand that tactile sensation is a key indicator of ultimate hand function. Ne
urophysiologists have identified that rapid… more
Abstract:Coherent Logix, Incorporated (CLX) proposes the development of a Software Defined Common Processing System (SDCPS) that leverages the inherent advantages of an integrated parallel processing architecture. Targeting a specific waveform (TBD) specified by NASA-GRC in terms of a high level functional… 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 (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:Coherent Logix, Incorporated (CLX) proposes the development of an integrated large format detector array and low-power, high performance HyperX parallel processor to increase the situational awareness capabilities of the modern warfighter. This system will combine the high bandwidth and glueless… more
Abstract:Coherent Logix, Inc., (CLX) proposes to leverage significant previous and on-going investment in the massively parallel HyperX technology fabric by investigating enhancements to the HyperX hardware, application software, and tool flow to better support dynamic reconfiguration of processing and data… more
Abstract:Coherent Logix, Inc. (CLX) proposes the development of a low power, integrated GPS receiver and anti-jam unit based on a software defined radio (SDR) platform built around its massively parallel HyperX digital signal processing technology. Integrating results from previous and current projects, the… more
Abstract:Machining of titanium parts from wrought stock costs as much as $1000 to $1500 per pound of finished component and has material lead times up to one year. Electron beam deposition, or e-BAM, seeks to dramatically reduce these costs and lead times. However, this is not possible without IPQA… more
Abstract:This project proposes the use of non-imaging optical measurement to discern the weld pool oscillations occurring during electron beam deposition, and thereby to infer the weld pool size. By knowing this weld pool size, it is possible to control the e-beam deposition process by suitably regulating… more
Abstract:Existing M&S engineering tools fail to accurately model new weapons lethality enhancing (LE) phenomena so new a fast-running endgame lethality simulation program was developed. During Phase I fragment flood loading (FFL) effects were successfully incorporated into the Tesla Lethality Simulator and… 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.
