Abstract:The water content of clouds, whether in liquid or ice form, is a key variable to be measured when either calibrating remote sensing systems or when calculating the climatological effects of clouds. While a variety of sensors exist for making these measurements, all of the existing sensors require… more
Abstract:Reclamation or restoration of sustainable native grasslands is constrained by the lack of seed of many difficult to harvest species. The lack of seed of many species stems from the lack of harvest equipment that can effectively dislodge, separate, convey, and off-load seed with challenging… more
Abstract:"Critical gears and engine bearings in our newest vertical thrust aircraft must operate with absolute reliability under high loads, high heat, corrosive salt air and intervals without lubricant. Current gear and bearing materials meet the design requirements, however, it is desirable to improve the… more
Abstract:Current engine bearing lubrication technology begins to break down at the high rotation speeds, loads and temperatures required for advanced fighter engines. Furthermore, in combat operation bearings may have to operate for short periods with no lubrication, and also resist pervasive corrosive… more
Abstract:One of the greatest obstacles to robust Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) is achieving a high level of performance in operating conditions outside those for which the system is designed. The bio-mimetic map-seeking circuit (MSC) has provided remarkably simple solutions to extending operating range… more
Abstract:Situation Camelina sativa (camelina, false flax, or Gold of Pleasure) is an under-utilized crop that contains valuable oil, fiber and high quality protein with many potential uses in both nutrition (human and animal) and industrial applications: Camelina has been evaluated for oil production in the… more
Abstract:Pre-mission rehearsal using 3D, simulated fly throughs derived from remotely sensed data can signicantly enhance warfighter safety and efficiency.

Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to develop a process for enhancing the nutritional value of soybeans to replace fishmeal as the primary ingredient in farmed trout and salmon feed. Fishmeal creates environmental and economic constraints for the aquaculture… more
Abstract:Microbial or biochemical agents that control plant diseases by inducing systemic resistance to pathogen infection could play a significant role in crop disease management. Bacillus mycoides, isolate J, BmJ, represents the first such agent that acts by foliar (rather than root) application and that… more
Abstract:Flax containing omega 3 fatty acids and relatively high protein content offers advantages as a potential source of plant protein and oil to replace fishmeal and oil in aquaculture feeds; reducing both pressure on marine fisheries and the principal source of contaminants in farmed fish. MMP ahs used… more
Abstract:79430S Conventional, industrial polymer mixers, such as kneaders and twin screws, do not provide sufficient carbon nanotube dispersion to realize the full potential of nanotube reinforcements in polymers. Although laboratory researchers commonly disperse carbon nanotubes into solvents and polymers,… 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.
