Abstract:Building on the success of its Dolphin acoustic transceiver system, Yotta Navigation Corporation will design and build an ultrasonic acoustic modem capable of sending information through ocean acoustic channels at extremely high bit rates of 500 kbps to 1 Mbps over ranges from 10 to 100 meters. The… more
Abstract:Yotta Navigation will continue development of a simple, rugged, reliable, compact and cost-effective military GPS sensor platform (GPS-SP). The GPS-SP is a self-contained military Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) module. It securely communicates with the Android operating system platform,… more
Abstract:Robotic actuators exceed human speed, accuracy, and strength, but human hands are regarded as the ultimate in dexterity. We propose this is due absent human-like tactile sensing and intelligent reflexive behaviors in robots. We’ve created multimodal compliant tactile sensors that mimic the sensory… more
Abstract:X-ray microtomography (with resolution of ~1 m) is used for studying the fine structures of geological materials, crack propagation, and aging effects. Microtomography is typically performed at synchrotron beamlines by imaging structures on high-resolution scintillators, with subsequent optical… more
Abstract:Electricity generation from coalthe nations most abundant energy sourceusing oxygen- blown coal gasification in coal-fired plants requires a low-cost oxygen supply. Current oxygen- production methods such as cryogenic air separation and pressure swing absorption are energy-intensive, making… more
Abstract:Advanced technologies are needed to confirm permanence of CO2 storage in geologic sequestration sites, where it is injected into underground reservoirs. Monitoring, validation and accounting technology is needed for groundwater carbonization levels to ensure that CO2 remains within the injection… 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.
