Abstract:ITN Energy Systems, Inc., along with the University of Maryland (UMD) proposes to develop a low-cost, high-performance Magnesium Ion (Mg-ion) conducting membrane to enable the production and commercialization of all solid state Mg-ion batteries (MgIB) that will be less expensive and more efficient… more
Abstract:Indium is currently on DOEs short term critical materials list. While it is believed by some that long term criticality will be reduced to low levels, China currently holds 73% of the worlds reserves and can create export controls to limit our access to indium at any point. In fact, export quotas… more
Abstract:ITN proposes to create an innovative anode supported membrane electrode assembly (MEA) for solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) that is capable of long-term operation at low temperature by the direct oxidation of dry methane or syngas fuel without coke formation on the anode. ITN's MEA is more… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Despite the prevalence of university nutrition and physical activity programs, poor eating habits and sedentary behavior are persistent problems for many college students who are surrounded by numerous unhealthy food choices and physical activity barriers which… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Chronic pain syndromes affect 25-35% of populations around the world. The presence of chronic pain generates a massive toll on quality of life, workforce productivity and healthcare resource utilization. Although non-opiate medications have been introduced to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term goal of this proposal is to develop more effective therapies for cancer, specifically pancreatic cancer. The specific focus of this proposal is to improve upon the anti-cancer activity of the drug gemcytabine. This will be accomplished by… more
Abstract:Timing and position data from civil GPS receivers have become integral to the operation of many of the Nation's critical infrastructures. Through the
Patriot Watch architecture, DHS is coordinating efforts to identify, locate, and attribute domestic GPS interference, maintain a central database… more
Abstract:Under this proposed effort, we plan to test the feasibility of adapting our terrestrial jammer locator system (JLOC) to locating jamming signals in space by adapting our previously developed GPS software defined radio (SDR) technology to provide an SDR waveform that can operate on spacecraft to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The biggest demand on a military receiver has been from the time required to search and acquire for the military signals when an accurate internal time reference is not available. Prior research by NAVSYS into network assisted GPS approaches used the JTRS network itself to transfer time… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: A robust back-up navigation alternative is needed to continue to provide accurate PVT data when GPS is denied. Navigation solutions can be enhanced by utilizing existing networked communications for dismounted forces operating in small platoons. When some of the forces lose their GPS… more
Abstract:Develop a new steel cutting process which will significantly increase the cutting rate of ship hull material for shipbreaking. In addition, the process will reduce the fume and smoke emissions to within Navy and civilian requirements and the opacity of particulate emissions to within Navy and… more
Abstract:U.S. intelligence, reconnaissance, and surveillance (ISR) platforms employ SIGINT sensors for target platform detection, identification and location. Many receivers are narrowband and are scanned over the RF spectrum (e.g., 2-18 GHz) in search of RF emitters of interest. With the rapid proliferation… more
Abstract:Nonlinear manifold learning is an active area of mathematical research. Unfortunately, the extant literature has far less to offer on the problem of interactive nonlinear manifold learning. In other words, satisfactory nonlinear manifold learning approaches that put the''human in the… more
Abstract:A goal of Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) is to use computer simulation of complex systems to make scientifically informed assessments for high-consequence decisions. Because end-to-end empirical data is difficult to obtain for the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS), computer simulation… more
Abstract:The US Navy uses manned and unmanned airborne platforms for ISR missions in challenging littoral environments with non-segregated airspace, restricted operating regions, and sensor occlusions, while tracking and classifying potentially hundreds of targets.

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.
