Abstract:Digital communications networks require hard wired electrical connections to link multiple nodes in a network. Wired connections tether a system and inhibit the relocation of network nodes in a cost effective manner. Additionally, there is an increasing need for protable wireless digital… more
Abstract:Industrial and remediation activities requiring emissions control generate tons of contaminated adsorbents each year. A process is proposed that destroys organics either on an adsorption bed in-situ or in a secondary reactor at mild conditions (170-250 degrees C). The process internally heats the… more
Abstract:Immobility and impractical input devices used in existing Computerized Charting Systems (CCS)cause disruption of established work processes and thus discourage widespread clinical acceptance.A novel design based on hand-held computers which recognize handwriting is presented. An electronicstylus… more
Abstract:Recent developments in catalyst technology have led to new routes for the preparation of high surface area (HSA) early transition metal nitrides. These materials have physical and chemical properties which make them interesting candidates for use as electrodes in high energy density electrolytic… more
Abstract:Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a collective term that includes Crohn's disease andulcerative colitis. Although both disorders have a distinct clinical course with characteristicpathophysiology, the destructive and progressive course of IBD probably is due to persistent elevatedexpression of… more
Abstract:THE RESEARCH CONCERNS THE PROSPECTS FOR ENRICHING SPATIAL PERCEPTION IN THE BLIND VIA A DIGITAL, VIDEO BASED CAMERA WHOSE PROJECTED VISUAL IMAGES TRANSFORMATIONS ARE TRANSDUCED INTO ANALOGOUS TACTILE TRANSFORMATIONS ON A NEWLY DEVELOPED ELECTROTACTILE ARRAY. SINCE DYNAMIC PATTERNS OF ELECTROTACTILE… more
Abstract:This proposed effort is to evaluate the various Multichip Module technologies available in term of technology maturity and ability to manufacture large scale production quantities with a supply base that will allow the military ground vehicle manufacturers and automobile industry to include this… more
Abstract:Hematopoiesis, the regulated production of mature blood cells, is a complex scheme of multilineage differentiation which occurs mainly in the bone marrow of adult mammals. Mature cells are continuously produced from progenitor (or precursor) cells. Consequently, assays which detect these progenitor… more
Abstract:NAVIGATION OF FIELD MOBILE ROBOTIC SYSTEMS REQUIRES A MEANS FOR THE ROBOTIC SYSTEM TO DETERMINE ITS ABSOLUTE LOCATION. THE USUSAL MEANS IS TO USE A VEHICLE INTERTIAL GUIDANCE SYSTEM WHICH IS PERIODICALLY UPDATED BY A GPS OR LORAN C RECEIVER. UNFORTUNATELY, GPS AND LORAN CAN ONLY PROVIDE ABSOLUTE… more
Abstract:MOBILE ROBOT SYSTEM NAVIGATION IS A DIFFICULT PROBLEM UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. OUTSIDE NAVIGATION USING COMPUTER VISION-BASED METHODS REQUIRES RECOGNITION OF VARIABLE TERRAIN FEATURES OR THE USE OF A RADIO LOCATION SYSTEM SUCH AS A GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM. INDOOR NAVIGATION IS TYPICALLY… more
Abstract:Due to the increasing use of technology to plan and implement modern day combat, it is imperative that troop and vehicles deployment and position be known as precisely as possible. Furthermore, the unit commander must be able to quickly plan, transmit, and display friendly and adversarial troop and… more
Abstract:THIS RESEARCH PROJECT IS DIRECTED AT DEVELOPING AN OPERATOR PERCEPTION MODEL BASED ON INSIGHT FROM EMPIRICAL PERCEPTION DATA COMBINED WITH KNOWLEDGE OF HOW THE HUMAN VISION SYSTEM PROCESSES INFORMATION. AS A FIRST STEP IN THIS DIRECTION, WE ARE PROSPOSING TO COLLECT PERCEPTUAL DATA AND USE THIS DATA… more
Abstract:RESEARCHERS ARE PRODUCING A HAND-HELD CHEMICAL CALCULATOR SHOWN TO BE AN EFFECTIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING TOOL THAT ASSISTS STUDENTS IN SOLVING (AND UNDERSTANDING) CHEMISTRY CALCULATION PROBLEMS. THE RESEARCH PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO ANSWER SOME OF THE ARGUMENTS THAT HAVE BEEN PUT FORWARD AGAINST THE… more
Abstract:COALITION TECHNOLOGIES, LTD., (CTL) RESEARCH HAD IMPROVED A SIMPLE GAS PHASE TREATMENT (SULFONATION) OF WASTE RUBBER AND PLASTICS. RESULTS FROM LABORATORY SCALE EXPERIMENTS DONE AT MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY HAVE SHOWN THAT CONCRETE MADE FROM SULFONATED RUBBER AND PLASTIC PROVIDED BY CTL HAS IMPROVED… more
Abstract:The objective is to develop a practical method for measurement of cochlear morphometric and physiological responses from fluorescent microscope images of cochlear tissue. Fluorescent molecular probes are chosen for the particular purpose of the experiments, i. e., marking the location and… more
Abstract:THE U.S. NAVY AND MARINE CORPS HAS IDENTIFIED THE NEED FOR A FAST FIEL6L-PORTABLE SPECTRORADIOMETER. THIS CAPABILITY WILL ALLOW MARINE CORPS AND NAVY PERSONNEL TO DETECT TARGETS IN A CLUTTERED BACKGROUND.THE TARGETS CAN RANGE FROM MINES TO TANKS AND ROCKET LAUNCHERS. THE BACKGROUNDS CAN RANGE FROM… more
Abstract:The proposed effort analyzes five spectral imaging radiometer concepts with the goal of developing an infrared spectral imaging radiometer (IRSIR) for use in high performance aircraft. The desired performance characteristics for this IRSIR are: high optical throughput, a small physical package, and… more
Abstract:Spinal cord injury is one of the most serious injuries the nervous system can sustain. Injuries involving the cervical region of the spinal cord result in quadriplegia, in which movement of the upper extremities is compromised, lower extremity movement is essentially impossible, and bowel, bladder,… 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.
