Abstract:This proposed study intends to find ways to improve the mechanical efficiency of robotic and remotely piloted flapping winged vehicles through the incorporation of elastic components. This will allow the manufacture of such vehicles with greatly enhanced flight duration and agility. Work will… more
Abstract:Minimization of blade tip clearance in the high pressure turbine and high pressure compressor is very important for turbine efficiency, reduction of emissions, and lower rotor inlet temperature which extends the service life of the engine. This can result in increased payload, extension of mission… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The clinical significance of chronic pro-inflammatory reactions in dialysis patients due to exposure to endotoxin has become a central issue in nephrology. The European Renal Association urges the routine use of ultrapure dialysate with bacteria and endotoxin… more
Abstract:Ocean Power Technologies, Inc. (OPT) and its subcontractor ASSETT leverage their many years of experience with US Navy programs, energy harvesting buoys/vessels, and sonar systems to address the US Navy"s current and future needs for autonomous, anchorless, easy-to-deploy active sonar systems.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The purpose of the present project is to develop and validate the use of ultra-small RFID chips to tag and track tissue cassettes and glass slides that are used in histopathology laboratories. The system is based on thePharmaSeq laser light-activated… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The development of circulating auto-antibodies to tumor-associated antigens (TAAs) has been observed at early cancer stages. TAA auto-antibodies are attractive as diagnostic markers because they are stable and persistent in cancerous conditions yet minimally… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The purpose of the present project is to implement a new RFID tagging system for rapid identification of vials in biorepositories. It is based on the PharmaSeq laser light- activated microtransponder, which is also known as a p-Chip. Its main advantages are its… more
Abstract:The project is aimed at the development of a cost effective, serum-based multiplex assay for early detection of clinically significant forms of prostate cancer. The assay utilizes metal-enhanced flourescence to provide an ultra-sensitive immunoassay for three cancer markers: alpha-methylacyl… more
Abstract:Megawatt class laser systems using Diode Pumped Alkali Lasers (DPAL) could be possible because of their extremely low quantum defect which minimizes thermal loading and, like other gas lasers, the gain medium can be flowed to reduce thermal management requirements. One key to producing efficient… 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.
