Abstract:Spherical-lined bearings play a crucial role in the operation of many aerospace applications. They provide connections between structural components experiencing rotating and/or misaligning motion. The inability to accurately measure liner wear on these bearings leads to premature or overdue bearing… more
Abstract:Field Sanitation Centers typically convert 240 gallons of potable water per day into greywater. This greywater must then be transported off-site or properly disposed of on-site. To alleviate this problem, a continuous process to treat the greywater produced is needed. The treated water must meet… more

The first phase or the inception phase of the systems… more
Abstract:This proposes research and development of significantly more efficient lighting systems for military expeditionary shelters than those currently employed, which place an ongoing expensive strain on the power management systems that supply power for lighting, using inefficient florescent bulbs, as… more
Abstract:The pico-projector, based on LED and laser diode"light engines", is considered a"disruptive technology"and a"game-changer"in the electro-optical marketplace. Auto-alignment systems are advancing rapidly and have the potential to make the pico-projector array feasible… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: In the proposed Phase I program, we will validate and optimize a thermal management (TM) concept for High Performance Electric Actuation System (HPEAS). The TM system does not interfere with the Environment Control System (ECS) nor the Power and Thermal Management System (PTMS). The… more
Abstract:High quality laser materials based on InP, InGaAs, InAlGaAs, and InAs are proposed to develope high power 3 to 3.5 m diode lasers. An adiabatically broadened amplifying section is proposed to reach high power with high beam quality. The active material uses strained layer epitaxy to rely only on… more
Abstract:A new facet coating material for high power diode lasers will be developed that reduces interface states at the cleaved facet and increases facet cooling. The facet coating is expected to be more robust and lead to increased power and brightness in high power diode lasers, bars and stacks. The facet… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: A new active material will be developed and tested to improve reliability for space applications. Recent improvement in facet reliability reveals that bulk failure mechanisms could limit laser diodes used in space. Radiation-induced defects are expected to occur in the bulk of the laser… more
Abstract:Using current design methods programmers cannot determine effective use of threading strategies that can maximize the effectiveness of multi-core architectures. Approaches such as effective threading strategies including, how many threads are needed, where the threading occurs, the existence of… more
Abstract:To maximize multicore architectures Securboration is teaming with multicore expert Dr. Frank Muller from the North Carolina State University to develop the Pico-kernel Adaptive and Scalable Operating-system, or PICASO, which has the potential for transformative advances in science and technology.… more
Abstract:Health surveillance has the potential to contribute to understanding epidemic causes and progression. It consists of systematic collection and reporting of population-based data for the purposes of detecting, characterizing, and countering health threats. While this is sound theory, in practice,… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Warfare is being transformed from a closed, state-sponsored affair to distributed terrorist activities enabled by social media. Today"s terrorists are extremely internet savvy. They recruit, organize, seek advice, assistance and material support; and manage their illicit drug trade… more
Abstract:Streams of time-stamped, unstructured text content represent both a valuable information resource for analysts and a daunting volume of input which must be sifted and sorted according to multiple perspectives. Securboration proposes Topical Summarization Over Time (TSOT), which treats summaries as… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Silicon carbide electronics technology has several advantages over conventional silicon electronics and it finds its application in several power electronics applications. However, the manufacturing of reliable SiC power devices is a critical challenge because of the degradation of the… 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.
