Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project aims to develop an indoor real-time locating system to provide a better wireless computer mouse and to enable new 3D human-machine interface. The conventional optical mouse provides only 2D tracking, and requires battery and a non-reflective… more
Abstract:Cavitation and particle erosion in hydraulic turbines present unwanted consequences such as flow instabilities, excessive vibrations, damage to material surfaces, degradation of equipment performance, and inefficient energy generation. These problems are becoming more critical because the propensity… more
Abstract:The projected population growth and limited availability of fresh water sources have forced utility companies and industries to consider the use of alternate water for non-potable application, such as industrial cooling. While in excess of 100 billion gallons per day of water is used for cooling… more
Abstract:The increase in the ability of a wave energy converter (WEC) to capture energy from waves is critical to ensuring the viability and cost effectiveness of wave energy power devices. WECs absorb wave power by applying a back force to oppose the forces that waves exert on the system. The back force is… more
Abstract:Problem Statement: The worldwide manufacture and use of Portland cement for use in concrete accounts for roughly 5% of global CO2 emissions. A common practice in the production of Portland cement concrete (PCC) to reduce CO2 emissions levels is the partial substitution of cement with supplementary… more
Abstract:Registries offer an important way to collect uniform data with a view toward understanding the etiology of diseases, and to improving their treatment. A major constraint in establishing registries is the cost of data acquisition, especially when not available from existing sources. The CDC SB EMR is… more
Abstract:The David Ross Group will develop an innovative, miniaturized low-cost undersea transponder for data transmission over long haul underwater cable systems where the signal is generated from an undersea node and integrated with an undersea transmission system while minimizing the use and number of… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Linearizer Technology-GOV with L-3 Communications EDD proposes to produce a 100W power amplifier covering the 81 to 86 GHz band with the goal of a linear output power of 50W at a power efficiency of 20%,>30% PAE with additional TWT development. The HPA"s linear power is based on… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: There has been a strong worldwide interest in the development of technologies that would enable hardware in the loop (HWIL) stimulation of imaging sensors.

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.
