AUTOMATION OF THE MICROSCOPIC BLOOD DIFFERENTIAL PROCEDURE IS NEEDED TOIMPROVE THE… more
Abstract:MARINE AQUACULTURE IN THE UNITED STATES IS A GROWING INDUSTRY. AS THIS INDUSTRY GROWS THE POTENTIAL FOR POLLUTION BY WASTES ASSOCIATED WITH FISH CULTURE AND FISH PROCESSING INCREASES. THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF BIOLOGICAL WASTE ARISING FROM UNDIGESTED FEED AND OTHER FISHWASTE AS WELL AS… more
Abstract:FUTURE MILITARY SYSTEMS WILL HAVE AN INCREASING NEED TO ACHIEVE A HIGHER AND MORE COMPLETE LEVEL OF SENSOR FUSION THAN CURRENTLY EXISTS. THE RATIONALE FOR SSNSOR FUSION IS GENERALLY WELL ACCEPTED AND RELATES TO PERFORMANCE, RELIABILITY, MODULARITY, AND EXTENSIBILITY. IT IS NOW DESIRED TO INTEGRATE… more
Abstract:Direct digital modulation for hardware-in-the-loop simulations of airborne radar systems is currently digital multiplier limited. A digital multiplier technology which can support 8-bit modulation rates of at least 250 MHz with a maximun incurred signal delay of 100 nanoseconds is required. To… more
Abstract:THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS TO DESIGN AN IN-FLIGHT TRANSFER ALIGNMENT SCHEME FOR THE INERTIAL MEASUREMENT UNIT (IMU) OF A HELICOPTER-LAUNCHED INERTIALLY GUIDED MISSILE. THE MISSILE, MOUNTED ON A HELICOPTER WING, IS SUBJECTED TO LARGE AMPLITUDE VIBRATIONS. CURRENT TRANSFER ALIGNMENT… more
Abstract:THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A PORTABLE AUTOMATIC CONTROL SYSTEM FOR THE INTRA-AORTIC BALLOON PUMP. THE SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED BY PROVIDE MAXIMUM IMPROVEMENT IN THE ENERGETICS OF THE FAILING CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM. THE CONCEPT IS TO FURNISH, DURING ASSISTANCE, AN OPTIMAL BALANCE BETWEEN… more
Abstract:THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS DEVELOPMENT OF PRACTICAL, MULTIVARIATE MODEL PREDICTIVE CONTROL (MPC) FOR FOSSIL POWER PLANTS. THE APPROACH USED HERE INVOLVES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A GENERIC, REDUCED-ORDER MODEL (ROM) WHICH CAPTURES THE DOMINANT STATIC AND DYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF POWER… more
Abstract:An adaptive attitude control system for a space-based interceptor will ameliorate the effects of torque disturbances when firing a divert thruster with the line of force offset from its center of mass. The adaptive control algorithm is based on a simplified version of a model reference adaptive… more
Abstract:Conventional guidance algorithms for exoatmospheric kinetic energy weapons are based on algorithms developed for endoatmospheric missile systems. With the appropriate assumptions and definitions, the algorithms can be shown to be optimal. Although they perform well under limited circumstances, the… more
Abstract:The assignment problem is a linear programming problem in which the goal is to determine the assignment of sources to destinations so as to minimize the cost. This arises in numerous areas, including assigning interceptors to threats in battle. Generally, the solution is very time consuming when the… more
Abstract:THIS PROJECT IS DESIGNED TO TEST THE FEASIBILITY OF TARGETED THERAPY FOR ADULT T-CELL LEUKEMIA (ATL) USING A NOVEL CD4 RECEPTOR-SELECTIVE DELIVERY SYSTEM BASED ON "VIRALMIMICRY": ARTIFICIAL VIRAL ENVELOPES CONTAINING RECOMBINANT GP160, OR COVALENTLY COUPLED RECOMBINANT GP120, OF THE HUMAN… more
Abstract:A single Fuzzy Logic (FL) design will be able to control an interceptor throughout its entire flight. The robustness of FL controllers will prove to provide adequate control during continuously varying aerodynamic conditions. FL is a completely model-independent linguistic-rule-based control… more
Abstract:ELECTRONIC IMAGERY, INC. WILL CONDUCT R/R&D IN THE AREA OF DATA COMPRESSION SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE FOR COMPRESSING MEGA PIXEL IMAGE DATA FOR ELECTRONIC STILL PHOTOGRAPHY SYSTEMS. FEASIBILITY OF USING APPROPRIATE ALGORITHMS FOR LOWLOSS AND LOSSLESS DATA COMPRESSION WILL BE INVESTIGATED. FEASIBILITY OF… more
Abstract:THE PROBLEM WITH DIGITIZING, PERFORMING-IMAGE PROCESSING, AND ENHANCING HIGH-DEFINITION, FULL-COLOR IMAGES ON PERSONAL AND PORTABLE COMPUTERS, IS THAT THE RIGHT COMBINATION OF HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE DOES NOT EXIST TO MAKE THE IMAGE PROCESS VIRTUAL SIZE, FULL COLOR, AND INDEPENDENT OF THE IMAGE… more
Abstract:THE MILLIMETER WAVE COMBAT IDENTIFICATION DEVICE IS A PASSIVE (NON-EMITTING) BEACON WHICH IS A LOW-COST, COMBAT RUGGED DEVICE FOR THE POSITIVE IDENTIFICATION OF FRIENDLY GROUND VEHICLES, IN TIGHT QUARTERED, OBSCURE BATTLEFIELD ENGAGEMENTS AND CONDITIONS. THE PASSIVE IFF BEACON IS AUTONOMOUS, EXCEPT… more
Abstract:DESPITE THE GROWING PRESENCE OF WOMEN IN PROFESSIONAL AND TECHNICAL ROLES, THE STIGMA STILL EXISTS THAT THEY ARE SOMEHOW LESS EFFECTIVE THAN THEIR MALE COUNTERPARTS. STUDIES OF MIXED-SEX TASK GROUPS INDICATE THAT WOMEN ARE LESS ACTIVE, LESS INFLUENTIAL, ARE INTERRUPTED MORE OFTEN, AND ARE CHOSEN AS… more
Abstract:THE LONG-TERM GOAL OF THE RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP A HAND-HELD COMPUTER THAT WILL ASSIST SMOKERS IN THEIR EFFORT TO QUIT SMOKING. PHASE I RESEARCH IS DESIGNED TO ASSESS THE FEASIBILITY OF THIS APPROACH. THE PHASE I RESEARCH WILL HAVE FOUR SPECIFIC AIMS: (1) TO CONCEPTUALIZE AND DEVELOP A COMPREHENSIVE… 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.
