Now, with the exponential growth of mobile technologies new opportunities can remove barriers to operational products… more
Abstract:Agricultural row crops occupy hundreds of million acres of land in the United States. Decisions regarding the implementation of tillage practices in these agricultural areas have a significant effect on other environmental outcomes including soil erosion, water quality, and carbon sequestration. In… more
Abstract:Thermal batteries are a power source for most MDA weapons systems. Some of these systems have severe constraints on weight and size, and for this reason, advanced thermal batteries are needed that can provide greater power in smaller and lighter packages. The key components of conventional thermal… more

Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is an autoimmune disease that presents with a heterogeneous and complex phenotype. Major manifestations of the disease are skin fibrosis, vascular dysfunction, and immune system activation. There are no validated diagnostic markers. There… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Septic shock is a dire outcome of sepsis, an acute systemic inflammatory state triggered by an infection. In the USA, over 750,000 episodes of sepsis occur each year and mortality reaches 30%. The high prevalence of such devastating outcomes highlights the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We have discovered, characterized and functionally defined a novel, immune inhibitory ligand. This ligand is hematopoietically-expressed, a distant member of the B7 Ig-superfamily, and its extracellular domain bears homology to the B7 family ligand PD-L1. This… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): ImmuRx is developing a novel and potent immunotherapeutic product to stimulate the immune system. This will significantly increase the efficacy of existing and new therapeutic vaccines for the treatment of cancers suchas melanoma, lymphoma and lung cancer and… more
Abstract:The objective of this program is to develop and produce a prototype SM-3, Block IIB nosecone that can achieve all of the performance requirements specified for the IIB interceptor, but at a considerably lower cost and weight than has been achieved previously with SM-3 nosecones. This is achievable… more
Abstract:NASA's future science missions to investigate the structure and evolution of the universe require highly efficient, very low temperature coolers for low noise detector systems. We propose to develop a highly efficient, lightweight Active Magnetic Regenerative Refrigeration (AMRR) system that… more
Abstract:Future manned space exploration missions will require space suits with capabilities beyond the current state of the art. Portable Life Support Systems for these future space suits face daunting challenges, since they must maintain healthy and comfortable conditions inside the suit for long-duration… more
Abstract:For a number of years Creare has developed, fabricated, and tested highly miniaturized, high vacuum pumps specifically designed for mass spectrometers used on NASA Mars missions. These pumps would also be useful on other missions to planets and satellites with atmosphere, such as Titan, as well as… more
Abstract:Future NASA space missions require advanced systems to convert thermal energy into electric power. These systems must be reliable, efficient, and lightweight. In response, we propose to develop an intercooled turbo-Brayton power converter with high efficiency and specific power. The converter… 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.
