Abstract:THE NEED FOR VERSATILE AND ECONOMICAL INDUSTRIAL SCALE TECHNOLOGIES FOR CULTURING ANCHORAGE-DEPENDENT MAMMALIAN CELLS IS BECOMING MORE EVIDENT. THIS IS A RESULT OF THE INCREASING DEMAND FOR VACCINES AND THE USE OF MAMMALIAN CELLS FOR SOME OF THE NEWLY EMERGING BIOPHARMACEUTIALS. MICROCARRIER BEADS… more
Abstract:We propose to demonstrate the feasibility of using transition metal carbides as a substitute for platinum photoelectrolysis catalysts. Our particular interest is in replacing platinum used in the hydrogen reduction electrode. We will adapt proprietary, patent pending processes to deposit… more
Abstract:PASSIVE RESTRAINT GOVERNMENT STANDARDS HAVE RESULTED IN THE INTRODUCTION OF PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAGS (PAB) FOR MOST CARS IN 1993. RESEARCHERS ARE DEVELOPING THE NEXT STATE-OF-THE-ART PAB DEPLOYMENT DOOR WITHOUT ANY VISIBLE CUT LINES. THE CONCEPT IS REFERRED TO AS THE HIDDEN SEAM DEPLOYMENT DOOR. THE… more
Abstract:Conventional methods of immunization in general require multiple injections at certain intervals to achieve the required protective immune response. However, this immunization protocol may not always be practical, especially for Army personnel in the field or in remote areas where access to the… more
Abstract:A COMPUTATIONAL DESIGN TOOL WHICH ALLOWS FOR OPTIMAL TOLERANCE ALLOCATION FOR MECHANICAL AND ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS IS BEING INVESTIGATED. THE APPROACH IS TO COUPLE A NONTRADITIONAL OPTIMIZATION METHOD WITH A MONTE CARLO-BASED TOLERANCE ANALYSIS CODE. THE ABILITY TO ALLOCATE TOLERANCES IN AN OPTIMAL… more
Abstract:Nitrate is a health hazard in drinking water. We are developing a simple flow-through membrane elecin which immobilized enzymes catalyze the destruction of nitrate ion into harmless nitrogen gas. Thr(Nitrate Reductase, Nitrite Reductase and Nitrous Oxide Reductase) catalyze the reductions. They… more
Abstract:The Army needs a high energy, high power, linear x-ray tube to complete a large area, scanning computer tomographic inspection system. Available x-ray tubes cannot meet the high energy levels (>150kV) and power levels (>100mA) required to produce rapid, high resolution, tomographic images of large… more
Abstract:As an alternative to holographic laser radar, AMPS will develop a 3-D imaging concept that collects far-field intensity speckle patterns. This kind of measurement greatly relaxes the tolerances on vibration and coherence length. However, phase retrieval will be required to retrieve a 3-D image.… more
Abstract:A key component in the Alkali Metal Thermal to Electric Converter (AMTEC) is the electrode that is generally sputter deposited on the beta"-alumina solid electrolyte (BASE). Electrode deposition, as it is now practiced however, is a random process that covers active sites on the BASE and places many… more
Abstract:AMOCO PROCESS ACTIVATED CARBONS HAVE BEEN FOUND TO HAVE HIGH STORAGE CAPACITY FOR ALTERNATE FUEL VEHICLE ENERGY SOURCES SUCH AS HYDROGEN AND METHANE. NEARLY ALL OF THE GAS THESE CARBONS CAN STORE IS ADSORBED IN MICROPOROUS REGIONS WHERE PORE DIAMETERS ARE LESS THAN 40 A. HOWEVER, THE MICROPORES… more
Abstract:Safety-critical aerospace applications have become increasingly dependent on a software component. However, conventional approaches to increasing the software reliability of these systems have focused on purely programming aspects. While these methods can all lead to techniques which should minimize… more
Abstract:THERE IS AN INCREASED EMPHASIS ON THE ACOUSTIC SIGNATURES OF GROUND COMBAT VEHICLES DUE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW AND EFFECTIVE ACOUSTIC TARGET ACQUISITION SYSTEMS. DURING THE DESIGN STAGE OF A GROUND COMBAT VEHICLE, IT IS IMPORTANT TO REDUCE THE NOISE, EMITTED FROM STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS. THEREFORE,… more
Abstract:THE USEFUL LIFE OF ENGINE OIL IS KNOWN TO BE HIGHLY DEPENDENT ON FORMULATION AND THE ENGINE OPERATING MODE. CONSEQUENTLY, AN OIL-CHANGE INTERVAL BASED ON MILES TRAVELED OR ENGINE OPERATING HOURS DOES NOT NECESSARILY DEFINE THE IN-SERVICE QUALITY OF THE OIL. ONE PROBLEM IN PARTICULAR FOR DIESEL… more
Abstract:THIS PROJECT IS DIRECTED AT PRODUCING A GENERALIZED COMPRESSION MODEL FOR SYSTEMATICALLY TRANSMISSION OF VIDEO INFORMATION AT DECREASING DATA RATES WHILE MAINTAINING MAXIMAL INFORMATION. ALTHOUGH MUCH IS STILL UNKNOWN ABOUT THE HUMAN VISUAL SYSTEM, MAJOR PIECES OF THE PUZZLE HAVE RECENTLY BEEN… more
Abstract:MUCH RECENT WORK HAS BEEN FOCUSED ON ELUCIDATING THE POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF USING FUZZY LOGIC AND ADAPTIVE NETWORK DECISION MAKING METHODS. ADAPTIVE METHODS, LIKE BACK-PROPAGATION TAUGHT NEURAL NETWORKS, CAN MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO BUILD COMPLEX DECISION MAKING SYSTEM WHICH AVOID THE "EXPERT SYSTEMS"… more
Abstract:This proposal advocates the development of a tool to provide the Navy with a mechanism for conducting in depth evaluation of distributed human performance. This tool will produce a truthing, testing, and evaluation environment designed to meet the US Navy's progressively increasing requirements for… more
Abstract:We are proposing to develop Virtual Panoramic Vision Blocks (VPVB) to providing drivers of IVHS sensorized vehicles with a low cost means for gaining full driving situational awareness. This approach combines solid state sensors with advanced display technology and computing to implement an… 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.
