Abstract:In a two-beam accelerator, a high-current drive beam imparts energy to a low current test beam by generating microwave power that flows from one beam to the other. The largest project of this sort is CLIC, located at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, that is being designed for operation at an… more
Abstract:Thermionic cathodes are in use in an overwhelming majority of vacuum electronics devices, including high-power RF sources used to drive particle accelerators. These cathodes do not operate reliably or have long lifetime if their current density exceeds 5-10 Amperes/cm2. Artificial diamond and… more

Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project aims to develop improved membranes for water electrolysis cells, providing a potentially renewable, cost competitive hydrogen source for fueling and backup power applications. Currently, the membrane contributes substantial efficiency… more
Abstract:Solar and wind energy are the most likely candidates to meet our future energy needs based on the available capacity. The problem is that these renewable sources are not consistently accessible, and thus storage must be an integral part of the energy solution. Hydrogen generation via proton… more
Abstract:The overall Phase-II goal is to develop the technologies and tools that can aid the automation of operation by providing intelligent decision support in situations when a mission plan needs alteration due to an event(s). The effort targets not only developing the algorithms, but also to implement… more
Abstract:Modern space systems such as the International Space Station (ISS) and the proposed Constellation vehicles and habitats are complex entities with hundreds of thousands of individual telemetry items. Monitoring the health of these systems, troubleshooting their faults, developing maintenance plan and… more
Abstract:A practical and efficient solution for PHM in Military"s Ground Tactical Vehicles can be realized via combining data-driven prognostic/forecasting and analytic techniques with a dependency model-based HM scheme. QSI proposes a PHM process that is generic and repeatable across application… more
Abstract:Rite-Solutions proposes continued development of a new generation of Interior Communications System (ICS-Next) to reduce Total Ownership Costs (TOC) by lowering acquisition, installation, and maintenance cost while moving shipboard communications functionality into the 21"st century. To… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Heart disease remains the primary cause of morbidity and mortality in the industrialized world and continues to incur costs estimated at 30 billion per year, despite detailed understanding of the mechanisms governing cardiac function and contractility. MicroRNAs… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose to develop a contrast agent for photoacoustic imaging targeted to the receptors of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGFR), so it can be accumulated and retained in tumor endothelial cells by VEGFR-mediated endocytosis. VEGFR are over expressed in… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Currently available anti-angiogenic drugs inhibit VEGF/VEGFR signaling, which leads to transient vascular regression followed by rebound of drug-resistant vasculature, which significantly decrease the therapeutic efficacy of very expensive anti-angiogenic… more
Abstract:The gray whale migration generates many hours of video that must be examined carefully to identify passing whales and get an accurate count of their numbers. Unfortunately, humans lack the necessary attention span. To solve this problem, a detector will be developed that can process hours of video… more
Abstract:Throughout history, the ability of a fighting force to respond to battlefield casualties, perform triage, and evacuate their wounded to a treatment facility has been crucial to the long-term success of the force. Until now, the ability of medical personn
Abstract:Existing DoD Command and Control and Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) systems are proving inadequate to handle the proliferation of sensors and the corresponding increase in data. To address this shortfall, Sonalysts will design a reliable, scalable, modular, and pluggable… more
Abstract:From its historic beginnings with the establishment of the Naval War College in 1881, the U.S. Navy"s wargaming capability has evolved with emerging technologies, tactics, techniques, and procedures. With the introduction of virtual world technologies, wargaming begins a new era in the"art… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Sonalysts, Inc. proposes to provide the Air Force with a high fidelity PC-based environment to familiarize allied exercise participants with USAF air traffic procedures, tactical airspace operations, communication standards, and rules of engagement of Red Flag exercises in advance of… more
Abstract:"Technologies that prevent Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission from natural and man-made sources are needed to address the environmental and human health implications of climate change. One approach is to capture the GHG emissions and secure them in long term storage, i.e., carbon sequestration. However… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project investigates the use of electrochemical devices for separation and compression of hydrogen from low-pressure mixed gas streams which are being developed for critical industrial gas and energy applications. Many applications will derive hydrogen… more
Abstract:Rocket test operations at NASA Stennis Space Center (SSC) result in substantial quantities of hydrogen gas that is flared from the facility and helium gas that is vented. One way to save on the cost of test operations is to recover these gases using an electrochemical system. This Hydrogen… more
Abstract:Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) water electrolyzers have undergone continuous development for the generation of oxygen and hydrogen for commercial, military and space applications since the 1970's. Unfortunately, conventional technology developed over this time period has required a complex… more
Abstract:Hydrogen is an essential resource for space missions. NASA has a need for equipment to generate, handle and store hydrogen. In terms of handling hydrogen, conventional rotating mechanical pumps and compressors require extensive modification and have limited reliability. Electrochemical pumping and… 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.
