To overcome the HMTD tendency to detonate, decompose and to be toxic, feasibility studies are essential in Phase I. Few approaches are suggested; starting with a device which has the actual HMTD or HMTD mixed with no-odor matrix. Each option will require… more
Abstract:Spire Semiconductor proposes a novel MOCVD growth scheme that will substantially reduce the production costs of inverted multi-junction solar cells. Incorporating quantum well structures will be investigated as a means to improve device efficiency and end of life cell performance in the space… more
Abstract:Dark current plays an essential role in the performance of LWIR InAs/GaSb SL-based FPAs. Previous improvements in material quality and device design have significantly suppressed bulk contributions to the dark current. The dark current due to surface defects becomes prominent with decreasing… more
Abstract:Spire Semiconductor proposes to make InAs/GaSb based MWIR/LWIR dual-band FPA photodetectors with low surface-leakage current using the unique processing and passivation techniques developed at Spire Semiconductor. In phase I, Spire Semiconductor will demonstrate FPA pixel-sized (~30x30um-2)… more
Abstract:The key to making quantum key distribution practical (especially for free-space applications) is to be able to use weak laser pulses (WLP) instead of single photons, while at the same time making sure that any third party wanting to avoid detection and mount an eavesdropping attack is restricted to… more
Abstract:The objective of this Phase I proposal is to demonstrate, through a rigorous design and modeling, the feasibility of a single chip Transmit/Receive Integrated Circuits (TRIC) with on-chip controller and compensation networks for next generation X-band radar systems. TRIC will include RF, analog and… more
Abstract:This Proposal is for the investigation of the feasibility, and if feasible, the requirements, for deploying distributed intrusion and bot

involve the… more
Currently, DHS and other government agencies such as DOD and EPA have a pressing need for inexpensive, robust, long operation life hand-held mass spectrometers (MS) to be deployed in custom ports,… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop a hybrid magnetron sputtering deposition process to apply alloy coatings on substrates as the replacement of electrolytic hard chrome (EHC) plating that utilizes hexavalent solution, a known carcinogen. Conventional… more
Abstract:We apply the theory of partially observable Markov decision processes (POMDPs) to the design of guidance algorithms for controlling the motion of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with on-board sensors for tracking multiple ground targets. While POMDPs are intractable to optimize exactly, principled… more
Abstract:High energy density and high power capacitors operating at a high frequency are in great demand for a variety of residential, military, medical, and industrial applications. In fact, a large percentage of the cost of alternative energy components is consumed by the cost of capacitors. Although… more
Abstract:We will develop a new infrared (IR) radiation sensor technology, which will allow the development of arrays of a new class of multi-mode thermal microbolometer detector. This technology will allow radiation detection from the near-IR to long-wave IR, a capability that is absent in competing… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a new infrared (IR) radiation sensor technology, which will allow the development of a new class of low-cost multi-wavelength thermal detectors which are also sensitive to light polarization. This technology will allow… more
Abstract:A clean-slate approach is needed for the design and implementation of wireless networks that self organize and can scale with the number of users, devices, and information objects and services that network users wish to share. This project will develop a new architecture and protocols for wireless… more
Abstract:Existing riverine drifters are passive devices designed to capture, store and transmit river flow and bathymetry information. Problems inherent with passively drifting devices include the inability to maintain uniform cross-stream spatial coverage and lost drifters due to unintentional grounding and… more
Abstract:Our proposal is to develop SCADA Hawk: an integrated anti-tamper technology that uses a hardware-software combined methodology for the observational monitoring of existing systems with selective reaction capabilities. By enabling detailed monitoring capabilities our goal is to isolate anomalies in… more
Abstract:Zenpanion LLC proposes a hardware-based protection mechanism to substantially improve the security of a key component of a SCADA system. The protected component is the on-site intelligent electronic controller installed to perform energy management in a home or business. The controller's… 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.
