Abstract:We will develop a laboratory scale process to fabricate a high strength, continuous hydroxyapa-tite fiber. A hydroxyapatite fiber would find many uses in bone replacement applications; especially bonereplacements requiring high strength and toughness in a completely biocompatible material. Fabrics… more
Abstract:The technologies of Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) are becoming a cornerstone of military operations and research. Examples include DIS based training programs such as the Close Combat Tactical Trainer (CCTT) and emerging R&D environments such as the Battlefield Distributed Simulation… more
Abstract:BIODE will utilize the results of its Phase I research to develop (Phase II) and commercialize (Phase III) a totally new solid state biosensor technology for biological measurements. This technology is based upon the merging of two technologies: Triple Helix Nucleic Acid Probes with Acoustic Plate… more
Abstract:A PHASE I FEASIBILITY STUDY IS PROPOSED FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A 2400 DEGREE KELVIN GAS SAMPLE CELL WHICH IS CAPABLE OF SIMULATING THE COMBU STION PRODUCTS OF HYDROGEN-AIR SCRAMJET PROPULSION SYSTEM AT PRESURES FROM 0.5 TO 2.0 ATMOSPHERES, FLOWS FROM 0 TO 1.0 STANDARD LITERS PERMI NUTE, AND A CELL… more
Abstract:FIBER MATERIALS, INC. (FMI) PROPOSES A PROGRAM TO DEVELOP A NEW CLASS OF SMART MATERIALS WHICH HAVE THE CAPABILITY OF SENSING ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE AND RESPONDING TO IT IN A DESIRED MANNER. PIEZOELECTRIC SENSORS AND ACTUATORS WILL BE COUPLED ELECTRICALLY TO FORM THE SMART MATERIAL STRUCTURE. A NEW… more
Abstract:High surface area, super adsorbent activated carbon fibers are potentially an excellent adsorptive material for chemical protective uniforms. However, these fibers are not currently available from a domestic source. A Phase I program is proposed to demonstrate the feasibility of producing laboratory… more
Abstract:RECENT IMPROVEMENTS IN HOT ISOSTATIC PRESSING TECHNIQUES HAVE ALLOWED AN AUSTRIAN COMPANY TO SUPPLY FULL LENGTH LINERS MADE FROM NIMONIC 105 TO A SWISS GUN MANUFACTURER. THESE TECHNIQUES HAVE BEEN UTILIZED IN THE U.S. FOR LINING OF TUBES FOR THE CHEMICAL AND NUCLEAR INDUSTRIES AND FOR LINING OF… more
Abstract:Recent developments in composites based on aluminides of titanium and nickel have shown the need for novel methods of production of cost effective methods of manufacture of continuous and discontinuous reinforcement materials. Currently, such materials as SiC provide a source of matrix fiber. In… more
Abstract:ACCIDENTS INVOLVING THE INTRODUCTION OF AIR EMBOLI IN THE CORONARY OR CEREBRAL CIRCULATION PATHS THROUGH CARDIOTOMY OR PUMP OXYGENATOR PROCEDURES CAN RESULT IN DEVASTATING INJURY. WE WILL DEVELOP A NON-INVASIVE MECHANISM FOR QUICKLY AND ACCURATELY DETECTING THE PRESENCE OF AIR EMBOLI IN THE INFUSION… more
Abstract:The research is intended to address the problem of extravasation events in the neonatal and pediatric patient population. Extravasations of intravenous fluids in children can have serious consequences when gross extravasations occur. Skin necrosis can occur which may require treatment with skin… more
Abstract:DEVELOPMENT OF A SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE TARGETED SPECIFICALLY FOR HEAD MOUNTED DISPLAYS AND A PERSONAL SYNTHETIC ENVIRONMENT (VIRTUAL WORLD) INTERFACE IS PROPOSED. THIS NEW ARCHITECTURE WILL ELIMINATE MANY OF THE TRADITIONAL PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH HMDS. PHASE 1 WILL INCLUDE, AS PROOF-OF-PRINCIPLE,… more
Abstract:DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF A SEMI-AUTOMATED FLIGHT EVALUATION SYSTEM (S AFES) IS PROPOSED. THIS WILL INVOLVE THE INTEGRATION OF CUSTOM SOFTWARE, A MICROCOMPUTER, SOFTWARE UTILIZED BY THE USAF IN LEARNING ABILITIES MEASUREMENT, AND PRECISION AIRCRAFT INSTRUMENTATION. SAFES WILL IMPROVE FLIGHT TRAINING… more
Abstract:THIS PROJECT IS DEVELOPING A NEW SOLID-STATE BIOSENSOR TECHNOLOGY FOR BIOLOGICAL MEASUREMENTS. THIS TECHNOLOGY IS BASED ON THE MERGING OF TWO RELATIVELY DIFFERENT TECHNOLOGIES: NUCLEIC ACID PROBES (DNA HYBRIDIZATION TECHNOLOGY) WITH ACOUSTIC PLATE MODE (APM) MICROSENSORS. RECENT ADVANCES IN THE… more
Abstract:This program on high-strength piezocermaic fibers probes a critical gap in the technology of smart materials which interconvert electrical and mechanical energy. Strong piezoceramic fibers that can function as load bearing members in structures and survive the large mechanical strains encountered in… more
Abstract:To continue the development of low cost carbon composite material, this program is intended to demonstrate the ability to fabricate net shape tubular space truss components using co-braided carbon and thermoplastic (PEEK) yarns. The thermoplastic yarn, when processed through an autoclave cure using… 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.
