Abstract:We will develop a rapid method for the diagnosis of tuberculosis. A piezoelectric biosensoremploying antibodies to soluble mycobacterial antigens will be used to detect these specific antigensand/or whole mycobacteria. Detection of mycobacterial antigens in a liquid phase will allow thediagnosis of… more
Abstract:SECA, Inc. proposes to develop a series of computational modules which describe real fluid thermodynamics and physical properties that are designed to be easily incorporated in computational fluid dynamics codes for the enhancing and the efficiency and use of such codes. The standard source of… more
Abstract:We will test the feasibility of constructing medical decision support systems using fuzzy logic bypersonnel previously untrained in decision systems, believing that such systems can help lower healtsacrifice in quality. We will develop and test two major pieces of software and their tutorial… more
Abstract:Great strides have been made in ground launched missile system range, firepower, speed, size, accuracy, and maneuverability through the use of sophisticated technologies. Many of these new systems require a rethinking of Army and Joint doctrines, operational control methods and techniques, and… more
Abstract:NONDESTRUCTIVE TESTING, IDENTIFICATION, AND REPAIR OF WELD DEFECTS HAVE BEEN DOCUMENTED TO CONSUME AS MUCH AS 25% OF THE TOTAL WELD PRODUCTION COST IN PIPELINES, SHIP FABRICATION, AND POWER GENERATING SYSTEMS. INFRARED SENSOR CONTROLLED WELDING SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN DEMONSTRATED THAT WOULD GREATLY… more
Abstract:The minimization of noise is of primary importance in optimizing system performance. Active noise cancellation is one of the most promising concepts for achieving noise reduction. This cancellation is generally obtained by means of some type of an adaptive filter. The key component of such a filter… more
Abstract:AI SIGNAL RESEARCH, INC. (AISRI) PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A COMPLETE INTELLIGENT HEALTH MONITORING SYSTEM (IHMS) WHICH PROVIDES LOW-COST ON-LINE MONITORING AND DIAGNOSTIC SERVICES FOR TURBOMACHINERY. OUR APPROACH USES OUR PROVEN INNOVATIVE DIAGNOSTIC SIGNAL ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES WHICH WE DEVELOPED DURING… more
Abstract:The regenerator is a key component of a regenerative cryocooler, and the performance of the refrigerator is almost entirely set by the performance of the regenerator. This proposal presents an innovative approach to the fabrication of regenerator structures using fine wires of a metal having high… more
Abstract:The performance of pulse tube cryocoolers has developed rapidly since the introduction of the orifice by Mikullin in 1984. The proposed effort covers an additional innovation that has been shown to result in increased cryocooler performance. The replacement of the orifice by a room temperature… more
Abstract:ADVANCED METHODS FOR THE CONVERSION OF NATURAL GAS TO LIQUID FUELS ARE NEEDED SO THAT NATURAL GAS ENERGY RESOURCES CAN BE BETTER UTILIZED. IN RECENT RESEARCH BREAKTHROUGHS, CERAMIC MONOLITHS HAVE BEEN USED IN PARTIAL OXIDATION TO CATALYZE VERY FAS, HIGH SELECTIVITY SYNTHESIS OF HIGHER HYDROCARBONS… more
Abstract:PARTIAL OXIDATION REACTIONS ARE VERY IMPORTANT ROUTES TO CHEMICAL SYNTHESIS. A SIGNIFICANT FRACTION OF ALL CATALYTIC PROCESSES ARE OXIDATION REACTIONS AND THERE IS A PRESSING DEMAND TO IMPROVE YIELD AND REDUCE WASTE BYPRODUCTS IN THE SYNTHESIS OF A WIDE VARIETY OF SPECIALTY CHEMICALS. IN RECENT… more
Abstract:COMPLEMENT PROTEIN FACTOR D PLAYS AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE ALTERNATIVE PATHWAY OF THE COMPLEMENT SYSTEM. INHIBITORS FOR FACTOR D HAVE POTENTIAL APPLICATION IN THE TREATMENT OF ADULT RESPIRATORY SYNDROME (ARDS) AND AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES SUCH A RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS. THE PHASE I OBJECTIVE IS TO DETERMINE… 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.
