Abstract:The purity of hydrogen fuel is important in engine testing at SSC. The hydrogen may become contaminated with nitrogen, argon, or oxygen. The hydrogen from the fuel tanks or feed lines is analyzed beforehand. Therefore, there is a need for a non-intrusive, on-line, near real-time monitor for H2. The… more
Abstract:In the Open-source microscopic traffic simulation models project, a component based software framework is proposed to re-engineer CORISM data struture and CORISM interface. Under the architecture combing the innovative framework and the legacy CORISM, prototype of the open source traffic flow… more
Abstract:In today's anti submarine warfare (ASW), sonobuoy emplacement is necessary for target detection and tracking as improperly placed sonobuoys can create poor localization regions. The need for placement accuracy from higher altitudes will be required as the P-8A Poseidon comes on line. Sonobuoy… more
Abstract:Current riverine craft are built in aluminum. Although aluminum is an obvious candidate material for a riverine operating environment, innovative solutions that deliver structural weight reduction to enable higher speeds, greater payload and increased survivability are always desired. Advanced… more
Abstract:SemiSouth Laboratories, Inc. (SemiSouth), a leading developer and manufacturer of silicon carbide (SiC) power-electronics device technology, proposes the development of a low-cost hybrid switch based on the company's silicon carbide high-voltage junction field effect transistor (JFET) products.… more
Abstract:Solid-state circuit breakers have significant advantage over electromechanically relays due to the use of various types of solid-state transistors used to control the power flow. These transistors are generally much faster than their mechanical counterparts, switching orders of magnitude, hence… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research research project aims to develop a polymer system for drug eluting coronary stents (DES). The material is expected to provide higher drug loading with a controlled drug release profile, as well as tunable mechanical properties over the… more
Abstract:"In 2005 8.8 billion broiler chickens were produced in the United States. Improvements in

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.
