Abstract:The objective of this proposal is to examine the feasibility of a design for a Photoconductive Semiconductor Switch (PCSS) with an integrated optical trigger that can switch at least 30 kV, 1 kA, 20 ns pulses with jitter<100 ps. The PCSS must be triggered without an external laser and the… more
Abstract:This project focuses on the design and analysis of a scale-free routing approach for mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) that we call automatic incremental routing (AIR), because routing to any destination is automatic from the routing labels assigned to nodes, and incremental in that each node only… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Otitis media (infection of the middle ear space) is one of the most common diseases of childhood. Myringotomy with tympanostomy tube (TT) insertion is the most common operation performed on children in the United States. Otorrhea is the most common complication… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cochlear implants have restored hearing in thousands of patients over the last two decades. However, because residual hearing is damaged in the process of insertion, this valuable procedure has been restricted to thosepatients with profound or total deafness.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Even as the cost and throughput of commercial sequencers has continued to improve over the last 5 years, there is still a need to further reduce sequencing costs, to increase throughput and sequencing accuracy and to reduce the costs associated with sample… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Mosquito-borne members of the Flavivirus family include four serotypes of dengue virus (DENV1-4) and West Nile Virus (WNV) and are classified as re-emerging pathogens due to the frequency and severity of recent epidemics. There are an estimated 100 million DENV… more
Abstract:Conventional generation of a high-quality RF carrier (signal) beyond 50GHz requires high precision cavity engineering that inherently restricts contiguous bandwidth coverage. Worse, even if one were capable of fabricating a set of such stabilized, frequency-dense cavities to mimic discrete 30-120GHz… more
Abstract:Digital equalizers have been the major enablers in RF communications in terms of managing component imperfections and channel impairments. Specifically, the ever increasing processing power of the dedicating computing processors has availed a steady increase in the ability of complex communication… more
Abstract:Spectral beam combination (SBC) of fiber lasers is the most practical approach to DEW-class HELs using diode-pumped fiber lasers. Use of conventional diffraction gratings to combine wavelengths is limited in that metal is inherently absorbing. Regardless of the metal layer thickness, optical power… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: In contrast to the NIR band, which is supported by an infrastructure of devices developed to serve telecommunication applications, the SWIR band remains out of reach for critical defense applications. While it is relatively simple to construct a low-noise oscillator within the… more
Abstract:Ion channels are membrane proteins that allow the selective movement of charged molecules through cellular membranes. Many disease states, such as cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophies, hypertension, and cardiac arrhythmias are caused by ion channel pathologies. Ion channels have been identified by… more

Many disease states, such as cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophies, hypertension, and cardiac arrhythmias are caused by ion channel pathologies.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Transmission electron microscopy is a valuable technique for characterizing biological therapeutics, vaccines, drug delivery vehicles, and nanoparticles. There is considerable evidence that links the physical propertiesof these samples to their bio-distribution,… more
Abstract:Project Summary With an increasing older population, including the generational aging of the baby boomers , age-related eye diseases are common and becoming more prevalent. Currently, it is estimated that 11 million Americans suffer from age-related macular degeneration (AMD) - a number that is… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The modern warfighter requires freedom of action in space for friendly forces, and when necessary, the ability to defeat adversary efforts that interfere or attack US or allied space systems and to negate adversary space capabilities. Freedom of action in space is enabled by Space… more
Abstract:The objective of this effort is to develop and test a multi-sensor data fusion algorithm suite that will fuse information from multiple electro-optic (EO) and radio frequency (RF) sensors to estimate tracked objects physical properties and dynamics for the purpose of aiding in predicting signatures… more
Abstract:In order to counter emerging threats from the Middle East and Southeast Asia, the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) is acquiring new sensor (e.g. AN/TPY-2 and PTSS type) and weapon technology (SM-3). As these new technologies are fielded, the BMDS's Command, Control, Battle Management… more
Abstract:The proposed project aims to develop a multi-channel analog to digital converter (ADC) required for a fluxgate magnetometer (EPD) employed on NASA's planetary exploration missions. The ADC has to feature very high resolution, radiation hardness (tolerance to SEE and TID), low power consumption… more
Abstract:The NASA's PATH mission employs a synthetic aperture radiometer that produces 768 IF (10MHz - 500MHz) signals. Digitizing the signals results in 1.536Tb/s (1GS/s, 2-bit) data stream. Within the NASA's SBIR contracts NNX12CE50P and NNX13CP01C, Pacific Microchip Corp. has developed a low… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Asthma is increasingly common and expensive. Current estimates place the number of people in the US with asthma at over 25M. Asthma accounts for one-quarter of all emergency room visits in the US. Direct treatment and indirect patient costs rose from 53B in 2002… more

Provide an analysis of alternatives that evaluates the feasibility of each approach and identifies the best approach to pursue. Provide a system performance prediction for the chosen approach. BENEFIT: … more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Current Air Force and industry radome designs are time- and resource-exhaustive, and require frequent maintenance and inspection throughout product lifecycle, due to outdated technologies. Typical panels are constructed with one of several joint types mated to the adjoining panel with… 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.
