Abstract:A need exists for a state-of-the-art electrical interconnection assembly that will simplify missile manufacture and assembly at a reduced cost relative to current methods. It should provide thermal protection, facilitate internal individual EMI shielding from each bundle type as well as external… more
Abstract:High performance non-toxic monopropellants offer significant benefits relative to the current state-of-the-art. The benefits of these advanced monopropellants (AMP) include improved safety, a 50% reduction in density, and a 20% improvement in specific impulse (ISP). AMP propulsion represents a… more
Abstract:Carbon bonded carbon fiber (CBCF) insulating material is the basis for several highly successful NASA developed thermal protection systems (TPS). Among the innovative TPS are Genesis, PICA (phenolic impregnated carbonaceous ablator) currently employed on the Stardust Mission and TUFROC (Toughened… more
Abstract:Loss of sea urchin biomass due to overfishing has led to loss of market share in the lucrative Japanese market. Natural recovery of stocks will not occur without the stock enhancement efforts and/or a complete shutdown of the fishery. A shutdown is not feasible because once the industry… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will determine the feasibility of using a content authoring, presentation and communication system in science centers for ongoing interactive learning experiences. Human factors research and development will result in a detailed… more
Abstract:Advanced reentry vehicles desire extended time durations in oxidizing environments, at temperatures in the range of 3000¿K. State of the art nosetip materials utilize a high density carbon/carbon (C/C) composite that has a carbide center core. This attribute results in maintenance of the… more
Abstract:The salmon and to a lesser extent the trout aquaculture industries in North America consider infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus a major threat to the current and future economic viability and sustainable growth of the industry. As such, development of an efficacious IHN virus vaccine has been… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) represents a serious problem in newborns, occurring in 3-9 of every 1000 term infants, with about half of these HIE babies dying or suffering life-long severe handicaps, such as mental retardation or cerebral palsy. Current… more
Abstract:The worldwide culture and trade of live carp and koi is seriously affected by the spread of and mortalities due to Koi Herpes Virus, but rapid screening tools that can be utilized for testing live and food fish before import/export are not available. The purpose of this project is to evaluate the… more
Abstract:Successful commercialization of open ocean finfish aquaculture will depend on developing new, presently unavailable methods of transferring and harvesting fish from submerged containment structures.

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.
