Abstract:Gastrointestinal parasites are the most important pathogens of sheep and goats worldwide. Anemia is the primary sign of internal parasite infection, and many sheep die of blood loss anemia secondary to abomasal parasites. Anemia results in pale mucous membranes and conjunctiva in animals and humans.… more
Abstract:Currently, the vast majority of food products are made using batch processing. However, in most manufacturing operations, continuous processing methods provide for higher efficiency as well as greater quality in the finished product. This paradigm is not yet present in the food industry due to one… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Stainless steel ballscrew components, such as those found in landing gear and flap actuators on the C-130 aircraft, experience wear and subsequent failure due to corrosion, contamination and foreign object damage (FOD). High"dither"conditions, where the actuator undergoes a… more
Abstract:Modern aircraft make extensive use of fasteners made of steel, titanium, nickel and other alloys mated with aluminum and composite airframe materials. This coupling of dissimilar materials yields galvanic corrosion issues, which degrades mechanical integrity, is costly to inspect, and poses a safety… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: A challenge which continues to present a barrier to the utilization of AM and wide spread adoption is knowing when to use the technology. This is particularly problematic in aerospace and in MRO operations because the technology is still emerging, and knowledgeable, experienced… more
Abstract:This STTR Phase I project's broader/commercial impact is to produce a replicable education platform that can be applied to many types of higher education courses. The initial commercialization will focus on information systems/information technology courses because it is a content area taught… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Modern military aircraft are encountering major thermal obstacles as a result of significant increases in on-board heat generation combined with a reduced ability to transfer heat to the ambient environment. Adaptive power and thermal management systems (APTMS) are being studied in great… more
Abstract:The movement to more-electric architectures in airborne systems has drastically altered the dynamics of power flow in the EPS with the addition of numerous high-power electric loads and has increased the complexity of designing the electrical power system (EPS). Such high-power dynamic loads may… more
Abstract:The US Army and Marines rely significantly on fossil-fuel based tactical power generation to provide electrical energy to deployed troops in small camps and forward operation bases. These generators are sized to support the expected maximum power but are
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): PharmacoPhotonics (DBA FAST, Inc.) proposes Fast-Track research to determine GFR in its first human Pilot study. The long-term goal of this SBIR project is to test FAST's minimally invasive catheter based fluorescent device in humans and commercialize this… more
Abstract:The proposed SkySight Technologies Quick Release Connector will independently detect an unexpected mechanical load on the power distribution line. The compact and lightweight SkySight Quick Release Connector uses existing methods and hardware to integrate into the infrastructure, and no special… more
Abstract:The proposed SkySight Technologies Downed Power Line Sensor will detect and alert the presence of a downed power line and its energized status
through a sensor on the power line. In the event of a downed power line, an alert message is sent via wireless network to the utility provider regarding
Abstract:The Light Microscopy Module (LMM), developed and managed by NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC), is producing fascinating results. LMM will yield even more astonishing results with the addition of enhancing subsystems. Techshot is developing one such subsystem, the LMM-Dynamic Stage (LMM-DS), which… more
Abstract:A light-weight, user-friendly, algorithmically or remotely controlled microscope, not purchased from a microscope company, coupled to fluid sample processing and sample changing systems is proposed. It is an easy-access light microscope consisting of a novel illuminator-condenser with no moving… 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.
