Abstract:The Air Force is developing a test capability to simulate wave foriDs, modes, and power levels of advanced threat airbome interceptors. The Advanced Airborne Interceptor Simulator (AAIS) will be a pod mounted s3-mRilator designed to achieve a high degree of autonomy. The technical challenges of pod… more
Abstract:This Phase I proposal describes an innovative process to treat waste waters containing a high concentration of nitrates and mixed nitrite/sulfate, which would permit dumping to grade and/or reuse. This waste water will be produced by a second stage nitrogen tetroxide vapor scrubber system to be used… more
Abstract:This Phase I effort describes Mainstream's innovative approach for the development of improved aqueous film forming (AFFF) fire fighting agents designed for hydrocarbon fires. This approach addresses the problem of biodegradability and performance of the current AFFF in extinguishing rolling fuel… more
Abstract:Mainstream has a long and successful history of developing useful, easy-to-use hardware for heat and cooling applications [3-37]. This Phase I effort will investigate and demonstrate the use of hydrogen-powered food service system. Phase I will systematically investigate and define the best approach… more
Abstract:THE PROLIFERATION OF ELECTRONIC NAVIGATION SENSORS AND INSTRUMENTS WHICH MAKE USE OF NAVIGATIONAL DATA (ECDIS, ARPA RADAR) HAS RESULTED IN A COMPLEX DATA SHARING PROBLEM. EFFORTS AMONG MANUFACTURERS AND TRADE ORGANIZATIONS HAVE RESULTED IN A SET OF INTRA-DEVICE COMMUNICATIONS STANDARDS WHICH GREATLY… more
Abstract:CREATING EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES IS THE PRIMARY INTENT OF THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT. THE HELPING HANDS VIDEO WILL PROVIDE SPECIFIC SOLUTIONS ON HOW TO CREATE THESE OPPORTUNITIES. THIS THIRTY MINUTE VIDEO WILL BEGIN WITH A SUMMARY OF THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT AND THEN DEMONSTRATE HOW… more
Abstract:THE AMINO ACID, L-AROGENATE, IS WIDELY UTILIZED BY BOTH MICROORGANISMS AND HIGHER PLANTS AS A PRECURSOR OF L-PHENYLALANINE AND L-TYROSINE. IT IS OF INCREASING IMPORTANCE IN BOTH BASIC UNIVERSITY-SPONSORED RESEARCH AND IN APPLIED RESEARCH WITHIN INDUSTRY TO HAVE ACCESS TO L-AROGENATE AS A SUBSTRATE… more
Abstract:The proposed research is in the area of new architectures for a Direct Digital Synthesizer (DDS). Current DDS architecturs employ a phase acumulator, incremented each sample clock by a phase increment word. By controlling this word the rate (frequency) at which the accumulator overflows is… more
Abstract:The Government has requested that the Multi-Mission Advanced Tactical Terminal (MATT) be upgraded to include the capability to receive and process the Navy's High Speed Fleet Boradcast (HSFB) data, and the Secondary Imagery Dissemination System (SIDS) data, as defined by the SBIR topic SOCOM 93-003.… more
Abstract:The specific aim of this Phase I study is to study the feasibility of a new low cost technology for high resolution, high sensitivity, Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT). The principal objective of this new technology is to achieve about a factor of six higher spatial resolution (1… more
Abstract:We will devise an interactive, intelligent computer-based multimedia system that will substantially improve the desire for and retention of Cancer Prevention and Health Promotion information. Such a system can benefit from more effective use of improved graphical interfaces, interactive video,… more
Abstract:A research proposal to develop a very high heat flux heat exchanger to cool semiconductor laser arrays is presented. The proposed design will be based on currently available microchannel heat exchangers. In order to enhance their performance so that they may be used for the proposed application, a… more
Abstract:IN PHASE I OF THIS PROPOSAL WE WISH TO INVESTIGATE A NEW MATERIAL B-BBO AS HIGH AVERAGE POWER AND HIGH PEAK POWER ELECTRO-OPTIC INTRACAVITY POCKELS CELL. SUCH A DEVICE IS REQUIRED FOR DIODE-PUMPED Nd:YAG SOLID-STATE LASERS FOR HANDLING CIRCULATING POWERS UPTO 100 WATTS. PRESENT MATERIALS ARE LIMITED… 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.
