Abstract:Mammography's role in the detection of breast cancer is well known. Although more accurate than other existing techniques, mammography's general inability to detect small tumors and other features motivates our study of the Mammograph Display System [MDS]. The MDS is based on the application of… more
Abstract:The US Navy has identified a need to accurately attack ground targets with weapons delivered from advanced high-altitude aircraft. The high altitude bombing concept affords enhanced aircraft survivability since weapons can be released beyond the range of ground-based enemy air defenses even when… more

THE EC TEST PROCESS CONSISTS OF DISCIPLINED EARLY EVALUATION TO DETERMINE… more
Abstract:THE USE OF PELLETIZED, STABILIZED FLY ASH WILL BE INVESTIGATED AS A SUBSTRATE TO ENHANCE PHOSPHORUS (P) REMOVAL FROM WAS5TEWATER EFFLUENTS IN SUBSURFACE FLOW (SF) EMERGENT PLANT-BASED WETLANDS. THE FOLLOWING EXPERIMENTS ARE BEING CONDUCTED IN PHASE I TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING FLY ASH… more
Abstract:RECENT DEVELOPMENTS EMPLOYING KNOWLEDGE BASED EXPERT SYSTEMSWORKING WITH OBJECT-ORIENTED DATA MODELS HAVE DEMONSTRATED THE FEASIBILITY OF AUTOMATING THE CARTOGRAPHIC MAPPING AND CHART PRODUCTION CYCLE. AREAS WHERE CHART PRODUCTION EXPERTSYSTEMS ARE MOST BENEFICIAL ARE: AUTOMATED PLACEMENT OF FEATURE… more
Abstract:The goal of this project is to develop new approaches and innovative ideas, which are needed to represent oceangraphic satellite imagery using data structures of software architecture that facilitate storage, transmission, processing throughput and accuracy of automated analysis results. Wavelet… more
Abstract:COMPUTERIZED EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS WILL DEVELOP AND EVALUATE ACOMPUTER ASSISTED CURRICULUM (CAI) IN ALCOHOL AND OTHER DRUGABUSE FOR NURSES. THE COMPREHENSIVE CURRICULUM WILL ADDRESSTHE BIOPSYCHOSOCIAL COMPONENTS OF IDENTIFYING AND TREATING DRUG ABUSE. STATE-OF-THE-ART CAI DESIGN WILL BE USED TO… more
Abstract:RABBIT MEAT IS PRESENTLY CONSIDERED A SPECIALTY MEAT PRODUCT THAT IS NOT UNIVERSALLY ACCEPTED BY CONSUMERS ALTHOUGH THE NUTRITIONAL AND HEALTH QUALITIES OF RABBIT MEAT FAR EXCEED OTHER MEAT PRODUCTS. A MAJOR PROBLEM FACING THIS INDUSTRY IS ITS INABILITY TO SUPPLY FRYERS DURING THE PEAK MONTHS OF… more
Abstract:Currently, dye lasers use dyes that are dissolved in a solvent and then flowed througha cell or jet. Although this is a successful solution to achieve a working dye lser system with tunability over a broad spectrum, there are also significant limitations to the full realization of the potentail… more
Abstract:Nucleic acid probes bearing detectable labels are widely used in the life sciences and biotechnology to provide a sensitive means to detect, localize, measure or amplify specific nucleic acid sequences in the course of genetic or clinical analyses and molecular biology manipulations. Genetic Vectors… more
Abstract:STRUCTURAL DAMAGE INVESTIGATIONS ARE MADE AFTER HURRICANES AND OTHER SEVERE WINDSTORMS BUT NONE ARE MADE IN SUFFICIENT DEPTH TO BE OF VALUE TO STRUCTURAL ENGINEERS, ARCHITECTS, AND THE BUILDING AND CONTRACTING PROFESSIONS. ALTHOUGH COSTS OF RECURRING STRUCTURAL WIND DAMAGE EACH YEAR FAR EXCEED THE… more
Abstract:IN THIS PROJECT, STATIC MODULAR AND DYNAMIC TIME-DELAY FEEDFORWARD NEURAL NETWORKS WILL BE DEVELOPED. ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAPHY (EEG) RECORDINGS PREVIOUSLY ACQUIRED AND INTERPRETED WILL BE USED TO TRAIN, TEST AND EVALUATE THESE NETWORKS. A COST-EFFICIENT, AUTOMATED COMPUTER-BASED SYSTEM WILL THEN BE… more
Abstract:WE WILL DEVELOP A DIGITAL TACTUAL VOCODER SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED OVER EXISTING COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE DEVICES. CURRENT VOCODERS HAVE BEEN PROVEN PARTIALLY EFFECTIVE BUT HAVE SEVERAL SIGNIFICANT PROBLEMS. THESE PROBLEMS INCLUDE (1) THE FAILURE TO TRANSMIT ADEQUATELY INFORMATION ABOUT VOICE… more
Abstract:The specific aims of Phase I are to develop software programs to implement two methods of hearing threshold estimation that have simultaneous acquisition of two audiograms: one from each ear, and to develop VRA- based behavioral training and testing techniques that allow infants to respond with… more
Abstract:THE PROPOSED INNOVATION, A SINGLE STAGE, FULL DUPLEX, ELECTRO- OPTICAL SYSTEM, WILL IMPROVE AND SPEED UP THE CLASSIFICATION AND SIGNAL PROCESSING OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF PATTERNS USED BY THE SDI ORGANIZATION. WHEN OUR ELECTRO-OPTICAL SYSTEM USED IN THE FORWARD DIRECTION, IT PERFORMS FUZZY PATTERN… 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.
