Abstract:THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO PRODUCE A MARKETABLE, INTERACTIVE VIDEODISK (IVD) MODULE PROTOTYPE THAT EFFECTIVELY AND EFFICIENTLY PREPARES PATIENTS FOR SELF-CARE MANAGEMENT OF ISCHEMIC HEART DISEASE AND ACCOMMODATES ADULTS WITH LOW LITERACY AND WITHOUT COMPUTER SKILLS. THE MODULE, A… more
Abstract:Conventional Beamforming (CBF) provides optimum signal detection under ideal ocean conditions (single plane-wave in isotropic, spatially incoherent noise). These conditions never exist in real ocean environments. In order to improve on CBF's performance, Neptune Sciences, Inc. (NSI) has developed… more
Abstract:A patented (U.S. Patent #4,950,594-1990) inexpensive, quick, precise method of testing substances for toxicity has been developed, LUMITOX (R), which measures quenching, in the presence of toxins, of the natural bioluminescence of the abundant marine dinoflagellate Pyrocystis lunula. The LUMITOX (R)… more
Abstract:One goal of the human genome project is the automated preparation of plasmid DNA from E. coli for subsequent DNA sequencing and restriction mapping. I have developed a radically new procedure for the preparation of plasmid DNA called Sequential Enzymatic Digestion. This method does not employ… more
Abstract:Technology International Incorporated (TII) will develop, design, fabricate, and test an ultrasonic dehydration process that can be used to dry ingredients in as little as 10 seconds, to produce ingredients with excellent quality for dental liquid meals, high calorie compact food modules, and other… more
Abstract:THE RESEARCH PROJECT INVOLVES THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN APPROACH FOR REDUCING OR ELIMINATING THE PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH PROCESSING SECONDARY FERROUS METAL AND THEIR REPRESENTATIVE COSTS. BASED ON A REVIEW OF THE ACTUAL INDUSTRIAL PRACTICE AND OPERATION DATA, IMPROVED METHODS OF GRADING, MARKING, AND… more
Abstract:THE LONG-TERM OBJECTIVE OF THIS CLINICAL RESEARCH IS TO FURTHER DEVELOP A NOVEL ELISA FOR THE DETECTION OF ANTIBODIES TO HIV-1 ENVELOPE GLYCOPROTEINS. THE UTILIZATION OF NATIVE ENVLOPE HIV-1 GLYCOPROTEINS OFFERS THE POSSIBILITY OF DETECTING ANTIBODIES IN PATIENT ERA TO A BROADER RANGE OF ANTIGENIC… more
Abstract:SUBSTITUTED BENZOPHENONE PHENYLHYDRAZONES HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED THAT POSSESS ANTIESTROGEN ACTIVITIES WITH ABSENT ESTROGENICITY. 4, 4'-DIHYDROXYBENZOPHENONE-2, 4-DINITROPHENYLHDRAZONE (A-007) HAS DEMONSTRATED ANTIESTROGENIC ACTIVITIES AT LOW CONCENTRATIONS AND CYTOTOXIC ACTIVITIES AT HIGHER… more
Abstract:RECENT REPORTS BY SEVERAL INVESTIGATORS INDICATED SERUM LEVELS OF THE ISOENZYME OF B1-4-GALACTOSYLTRANSFERASE (GTII) CORRELATED WITH THE TUMOR BURDEN OF METASTIC CANCER PATIENTS. IN OVARIAN TUMOR PATIENTS, SUCCESSFUL CANCER THERAPY RESULTED IN DECREASED LEVELS OF SERUM GTII. PRELIMINARY STUDIES… more
Abstract:MARBLE ASSOCIATES, INC., PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A COMMAND EDITOR TO RUN UNDER NEXTSTEP, MOTIF, AND OPEN WINDOWS. THIS TOOL WILL ALLOW USERS TO CUSTOMIZE THE MENUS AND COMMAND-KEY EQUIVALENTS USED WITHIN APPLICATIONS TO SUIT THEIR INDIVIDUAL NEEDS AND TO CONSTRUCT PALETTES OF FREQUENTLY USED COMMANDS.… more
Abstract:PARAMETERS REQUIRED FOR ESTIMATING RANGE PERFORMANCE WILL BE DEFINED AND METHOD FOR OBTAINING SUCH PARAMETERS FROM MODELS AND MEASUREMENTS WILL BE IDENTIFIED. PROPAGATING EFFECTS WILL BE INCORPORATED IN LOCKUP TABLES, AND MODIFIED GRAFTING INTERPOLATION ALGORITHMS WILL PROVIDE THE PROPAGATION… more
Abstract:TII WILL DEVELOP THE SKELETAL STRUCTURE FOR A PROOF-OF-CONCEPT (POC) DESIGN OF A 1 MW SUPERCONDUCTIVE MAGNETIC ENERGY STORAGE (SMES) SYSTEM AND WILL PROVIDE A CONCEPT OF OPERATION TO INCLUDE DETAILS ON SUGGESTED DESIGN, COMPONENT SPECIFICATIONS, AND ESTIMATED COST AND PAYBACK. THE SMES SYSTEM WILL… more
Abstract:SEVERAL CONCEPTS ARE PROPOSED FOR LOCOMOTIVE CAB ALERTERS THAT CAN BE RETROFITTED TO ALERTER SYSTEMS ALREADY IN SERVICE. THE CONCEPTS INCLUDE A TOUCH SCREEN, WHICH REQUIRES TOUCHING A TARGET TO RESET THE TIMER OR TO RESPOND TO THE ALERTER LIGHT PROMPT. THE INITIAL LOCATION OF THE TARGET ON THE… 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.
