Abstract:Rural communities are threatened by declining economic performance, loss of population, andlack of opportunity. Telecommunications offers promise for rural revitalization by capitalizingon the wage disparity between urban and rural economies. The proposed research will examineefforts to date in… more
Abstract:The primary problem in organ transplantation today is the shortage of human donors. A proposed soluuse of pigs, but the risk of rejection is currently too great. The ultimate goal for transplant recispecific immune tolerance. They would then accept their grafts as "self' without immune suppression… more
Abstract:Tools for engineering of complex, embedded, high-performing real-time systems comprise a critical technology area. 21st Century Systems, Inc. proposes to design and eventually (in Phases II and III) develop and commercialize an environment tool-suite that will perform systems synthesis for such… more
Abstract:Chlorella virus (Cvi) restriction nucleases are a large, untapped source of gene mapping tools that have considerable commercial potential. Unlike bacterial restriction endonucleases, which recognize 4 to 8 base pair (bp) DNA target sequences, Cvi endonucleases define unique 2 to 4 bp cleavage sites… more
Abstract:The primary long term objective will be the large scale production of novel organometallic reagents prepared from highly reactive Rieke Metals. Primary metals to be examined include zinc, magnesium, copper, and calcium. The development of highly reactive Rieke Metals allows the direct oxidative… more
Abstract:Resin transfer modling (RTM) offers many advantages over hadn lay-up of prepreg or wet filament winding in the production of advanced composites. Successful application of RTM requires complete resin infiltration of the molded dry fiber preform. Uncertainty in the resin infiltration process due to… more
Abstract:Our company will develop an immunoassay that can be used in screening programs fordetermination of blood lead levels. Monoclonal antibodies specific for delta-aminolevulinic acid (ALAD)and lead will be used to investigate the feasibility of their use for detection of lead bound to ALAD inan… more
Abstract:THIS PHASE II PROJECT WILL DEVELOP TRAINING MATERIALS, INCLUDING A MANUAL, TO ASSIST NATIVE AMERICAN TRIBES, COMMUNITIES AND ORGANIZATIONS IN THEIR COMPREHENSIVE TOURISM DEVELOPMENT PLANNING AND IMPLEMENTATION. FURTHER, THE PROJECT WILL PLAN AND CONDUCT A WORKSHOP, INVOLVING A CROSS SECTION OF… more
Abstract:THE NEED FOR SMALLER SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICE STRUCTURES FOR USE IN VERY HIGH SPEED MICROELECTRONICS REQUIRES A NEW GENERATION OF PLASMA ETCHING TECHNOLOGY. ECR PROMISES TO PROVIDE FEATURES AS SMALL AS 0.2 MICRONS IN SIZE, AS WELL AS A HIGH DEGREE OF ETCHING ANISOTROPY, SELECTIVITY, ETCH RATES, AND LOW… more
Abstract:II-VI SEMICONDUCTORS, ESPECIALLY HGCDTE, ARE USED EXTENSIVELY IN INFRARED IMAGING AND NIGHT VISION ELECTRONICS. THESE SEMICONDUCTORS HAVE SOFT SURFACES; GROWTH OF DEVICE QUALITY MATERIAL IS DIFFICULT; DEVICE YIELDS ARE LOW, AND COSTS ARE HIGH. THERE IS THUS A GREAT NEED FOR NON-INVASIVE PROCESS… more
Abstract:Targets designed to withstand the effects of conventional (nonnuclear) munitions are assessed using standard vulnerability assessment methods. These assessment tools usually consider variabilities in site characteristics, target attributes like strength and stiffness, and weapon delivery… more
Abstract:IN THIS PROPOSAL WE OFFER TO DEVELOP FOR THE DEFENSE NUCLEAR AGENCY A SOFTWARE DESIGN FRAMEWORK THAT CAN BE USED BY ALL OF DNA'S CONTRACT ORGANIZATIONS FOR THEIR OWN INDIVIDUALLY TAILORED DNA COMPUTATIONAL SOFTWARE--EXISTING OR DEVELOPMENTAL. THIS FRAMEWORK MAKES USE OF NEWLY DEVELOPED… more
Abstract:Enzymatic dideoxy sequencing can be streamlined using algebraic coding strategies from communications theory. Using coding methods similar to those applied to telecommunications and digital electronics, the speed and efficiency of DNA sequencing can be substantially improved. One DNA template can be… more
Abstract:WE PROPOSE TO TEST THREE SPECIES OF MILKWEED AND THEIR ECOTYPES IN THE GREEHOUSE FOR RESISTANCE, TOLERANCE OR BOTH TO BLACK SPOT AND BACTERIAL BLIGHT CAUSED BY THE FUNGAL PATHOGEN, CERCOSPORA SP. AND XANTHOMONAS CAMPESTRIS PV ASCLEPIADIS. THESE TWO DISEASES ARE THE PRINCIPAL OBSTACLES TO THE… more
Abstract:The development of an innovative low cost RHP hardening approach is proposed for Navy sitee/atations. The Hardening solution ie defined in the form of an ECP, and focuses on reducing costs by having an integrated approach to the design, fabrication, installation, testing, and maintenance of the… 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.
