Abstract:ABSTRACT: To perform on-airplane weld repairs of the F-22 titanium frames and forward and aft booms is highly desired, but currently not practical due to the required high temperature thermal stress relief process. An alternative is to apply the vibration stress relief scheme, which is… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Aircraft fuel cells are flexible rubber-coated fabric enclosures for the containment of fuel within aircraft cavities. The overall envelope dimensions and locations of interface fittings and attachment elements such as lacing ferrules and hanger baskets are critical to the proper function… more
Abstract:X-wave Innovations, Inc.

Abstract:Many emergency cricothyrotomy kits have been developed in an attempt to simplify this potentially life-saving medical procedure. However, none of the existing kits perform noticeably better than the standard surgical kit. The standard kit itself has led to a reported failure rate of 33% when… more
Abstract:Dexterous performance degradation resulting from donning an extra-vehicular activity (EVA) glove limits the capability of astronauts to perform certain tasks in space. This measurable performance loss has led to a number of design revisions, but barehanded performance with an EVA glove on is still… more
Abstract:High power pulse weapons have been proposed for decades. Prototype lasers have had some success in destroying surface and airborne targets. High power, high efficiency laser diodes are now available to pump the lasers but they need large amounts of power and energy storage. The instantaneous power… 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.
