Abstract:SPACE SHUTTLE FLIGHTS HAVE DEMONSTRATED THE VALUE OF FLEXIBLE CERAMIC BLANKETS SUCH AS ADVANCED FLEXIBLE REUSABLE SURFACE INSULATION (AFRS) FOR REENTRY THERMAL PROTECTION ON AREAS EXPOSED TO MODERATE HEATING RATES. OTHER CERAMIC BLANKETS ARE BEING DEVELOPED FOR FUTURE SPACECRAFT SUCH AS THE NASP,… more
Abstract:A new method is proposed for the development of stable, high speed electro-optic polymers for optical waveguide devices such as switches and couplers. Thin polymer films will be produced by a new process that we refer to as flash evaporation. The process is based on negative electron beam… more
Abstract:ADDRESSING THE NEED FOR HIGHER RELIABILITY PULSE CAPACITORS TO SERVE DEMANDING APPLICATONS SUCHAS THE COPPER LASER INVERTER, A METALLIZED CAPACITOR IS PLANNED WITH A RATING OF 1-2 MICROFARADS (UF)/2000V, THAT HAS SUPERIOR DV-DT AND HIGH FREQUENCY CURRENT CARRYING CHARACTERISTICS, AND PROLONGED LIFE… more
Abstract:WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP AN EXPERT GUIDED APPROACH TO CONSTRUCTING HIGH LEVEL MODELS USING DETAILED MODELS OF ARMY COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS IN THE CECOM INVENTORY AS THE GROUND LEVEL BASIS. SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES INCLUDE: TO IDENTIFY CHARACTERISTICS OF THE CECOM MODEL INVENTORY RE- LEVANT TO SUCH MODEL… more
Abstract:ADVANCED COMPOSITE MATERIALS HAVE EVOLVED TO BE THE CLASS OF MATERIALS WHICH MEET THE STRICT REQUIREMENTS OF MANY GROUND- AND SPACE-BASED CRITICAL STRUCTURES. SYSTEMS WHICH INCORPORATE THESE NOVEL MATERIALS ARE FREQUENTLY EXPOSED TO HARSH ENVIRMENTS DURING SERVICE, AND MUST THEREFORE BE MANUFACTURED… more
Abstract:The overall objective of this project is to develop a reliable, low-cost neural network architecture for sensors, and real-time processing to continuously monitor the structural health of the thick composite structure used in armored vehicles. The Phase I demonstration will be implemented with… more
Abstract:The development effort will be divided into two major tasks: develop and evaluate candidate protection concepts, and investigate and evaluate armor materials to be used in the concepts. There are unique ballistic protection concepts and armor materials which we will evaluate. We intend to consider,… more
Abstract:We will improve the ease, cost, and efficiency of using splints and braces to treat patients with musculoskeletal disorders. Splints are commonly used to treat sprains, fractures, muscle contraction, and spasticity; braces are commonly used to hold joints or limbs in place. For more effective… more
Abstract:THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO ASSESS THE POTENTIAL OF A NEURAL NET-BASED COMPUTER PROGRAM AS A PRESCHOOL EVALUATION JOB AID THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF AN OBSERVATION JOB AID PROTOTYPE. THIS PROTOTYPE WILL UTILIZE PATTERN RECOGNITION CAPABILITIES OF NEURAL NET IN MAKING THE… more
Abstract:PHASE I WILL COMPLETE A RESEARCH VALIDATION STUDY OF ALL POSSIBLE COMPONENTS OF A BUSINESS PLAN AND RANKED THEM IN RELATIVE IMPORTANCE FOR THE PLANNING AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS ENTERPRISES FOR NATIVE AMERICANS. PHASE I WILL ALSO DEVELOP PLANS FOR THE DESIGN AND PRODUCTION OF A… more
Abstract:THIS PROJECT WILL RESULT IN DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING OF A MICROCOMPUTER BASED VIDEO IMAGE COMPARATOR FOR USE IN A CLINICAL DERMATO- LOGICAL ENVIRONMENT. THIS DEVICE WILL BE USED BY DERMATOLOGISTS TO EASE THE TASK OF LOCATING NEW OR CHANGED CUTANEOUS LESIONS WHICH MAY POSE A LETHAL THREAT TO 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.
