Abstract:ABSTRACT: The primary objective of this research effort is to develop a next-generation time-gated ballistic imaging (BI) system for three-dimensional characterization of liquid breakup within dense fuel sprays. The temporal resolution will be varied using nonlinear time gating and pulse shaping… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: A new knowledge-based approach is proposed to mitigate the corrosion of metallic surfaces. The approach is based on the rational design of molecular coating materials based on a new class of phthalocyanines. While these materials resemble fluorinated polymers in their capacity to… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project seeks to advance manufacturing processes in the dissimilar metal/impact welding industries via an aluminum/water reaction that chemically produces hydrogen energy. Ideally, the energy in the form of about 100 kpsi-200 kpsi, could be the… more
Abstract:During covert operations, the U.S. Army may be required to breach a concrete structure using a controlled explosion. When choosing the most effective charge size and placement, it is vital to perform a rapid field assessment of the material and structural properties of the target structure. However,… more
Abstract:With the advent of very high strength concrete, such as that manufactured by LaFarge, calculations that have been used historically to determine the explosive content needed to breach concrete structures have been compromised. As a result of this and other mission critical issues, the Army has… more
Abstract:Technical abstract 13.1-005 Today there is no sub-sonic ammunition currently type classified for use in the calibers provided by any DoD Service. Although sub-sonic rounds exist for some calibers, these rounds are not cost effective and exhibit excessive deviations in velocity (affecting accuracy),… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Although numerous advances have been made in the treatment of severe hemorrhage, current blood plasma substitutes do not address new insights in resuscitation medicine. Research in fluid technologies and vascular response following significant pre-hospital… more
Abstract:Injuries to soft tissues in extremities represent a high percentage of battlefield wounds in recent conflicts. Therapies for restoring function to injured muscle are needed for Wounded Warriors suffering from debilitating and sometimes disfiguring musculoskeletal injuries. Regenerative medicine… more
Abstract:Skeletal muscle injury is a significant challenge to warfighters due to the severity of the injuries often caused by Improvised Explosive Devices. Currently, there are few viable clinical treatment options for these types of injuries. Keratin hydrogels offer a solution to these challenges as… more
Abstract:The improvement of body armor, equipment, and decreases in patient transport times have dramatically improved survival of combat injuries. However, data suggests that future conflicts will require more aggressive wound management at the point of injury to deal with more complex wounds particularly… more
Abstract:According to the American Cancer Society 220,000 men and women in the U.S. develop lung and bronchial cancer every year and 147,000 die of the disease. Of lung cancer patients, 85% present with non-small-cell lung cancer and 16.7% of these will present with localized disease. Note that lung cancer… more
Abstract:Reducing foreign dependence on petroleum-based materials is a key to enhancing the US agricultural economy in the long-term.

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.
