Abstract:A launch vehicle and its launch facilities are subjected to intense acoustic loads generated by the vehicle's propulsion system. The vehicle, its payload, and facilities must be designed to withstand these loads to ensure mission safety and success. Accurately accounting for the acoustic… more
Abstract:The U.S. is suffering from a $10billion and growing trade offset in fisheries products, with the majority of these products coming from farmed sources abroad. Several limiting factors exist that are inhibiting the growth of aquaculture in developed nations like the U.S., one of which is the… more
Abstract:Current status/problem: Wind loading calculations for structures are currently performed according to the ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers) 7 Standard. The values in this standard were calculated from simplified models that do not necessarily take into account relevant characteristics such… more
Abstract:The innovation is a System and Application Programming Interface, data services and device control, coupling geospatial visualization and database technologies with mobile sensor networks. A product line will be developed, beginning with a map-based streaming media and moving objects video console.… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Under the first phase of the program, Plasmonics Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories investigated a range of surfaces that yield non-Lambertian emission profiles in the thermal infrared. The second phase of this program will further maturate the designs developed in the first phase of… more
Abstract:Feasibility of the microbolometer detectors using novel thin film materials was proven in Phase I. Phase II will continue these efforts by producing packaged sensors that are designed to function in PFx systems for persistent ISR applications. In order to provide a low unit cost, high sensitivity,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Acute pesticide poisoning remains a vast health problem in the developed and developing world. Domestically, a 2004 study estimates that 18 of every 100,000 US agricultural workers suffer from acute pesticide poisoningand a 2002 study of California air found… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Sepsis is the tenth-leading cause of death in the United States and the second-leading cause of death in the intensive care unit (ICU). Sepsis kills over 215,000 Americans each year - more than breast cancer, lung cancer, and prostate cancer combined. Rapid… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The majority of multiple myeloma (MM) patients will initially respond to standard chemotherapy. However, eventually relapse of the disease, associated with a multi-drug resistant phenotype, contributes to poor clinicaloutcomes. Modulation Therapeutics is… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will further develop a new software package for automatic dimensional analysis of nanomaterials from electron microscopy images. The difficult task of manual dimensional analysis of nanomaterials is a significant barrier to the success of the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): According to the American Cancer Society, half of all men and one-third of all women in the United States will develop cancer in their lifetime. While chemotherapy has dramatically improved the survival rate of cancer patients, it comes at the cost of severe… 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.
