Abstract:In order to dramatically reduce CO2 emissions from coalfired power plants, and mitigate their impact on global climate change, DOE has called for technologies that can capture at least 90% of CO2 emissions from an existing coalfired power plant with no more than a 35% increase in the cost of… more
Abstract:The first, and arguably the most important, step in systems engineering is gathering stakeholder needs. Being able to elicit accurate, actionable needs from a stakeholder is nearly an art and is very difficult to standardize as each set of stakeholders may have drastically different needs. It is… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Air Force Satellite Control Network (AFSCN) requires an advanced Ephemeris Update Receiver (EUR) that can be used with either parabolic dish antennas or geodesic dome phased array antennas. The ideal EUR must track minimum signal levels of -195 dBm for both narrow and wideband signals… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The proposed low-temperature, low-cost cryocooler meets a need for lower temperatures required by emerging airborne applications. Airborne platforms are adding infrared and hyperspectral sensors, which require cryogenic cooling to less than 77 K, in some cases as low as 25 K. The current… more
Abstract:Current electric energy storage (EES) technologies cannot meet the requirement of both high power density and high energy density for portable electronics in general and gun fired munitions in particular. Advanced Materials and Energy Systems, Inc. (AMES) plans to resolve this issue by developing a… more
Abstract:To maintain high situational awareness, dismounted Soldiers are making increasing use of soldier-borne electronic devices (e.g., sensors, radios, data devices, etc.). Unfortunately these devices require a considerable number of batteries to maintain their operation during a typical multi-day… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Bladder cancer is the 4th most common cancer in the U.S. Accounting For ~70,000 new cases annually and ~15,000 deaths.

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.
