Abstract:Future satellite missions carrying X-ray spectrometers will be cooled to milliKelvin temperatures by multi-stage Adiabatic Demagnetization Refrigerators (ADR), which, in turn will be precooled by closed-cycle cryocoolers. Each stage of the ADR will use a low temperature superconducting magnet, which… more
Abstract:Recent research has shown that Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) may be used to measure the very weak magnetic signal in Magnetic Resonance Imaging at ultra-low magnetic fields in the milli-tesla range or below. However, the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is quite low, requiring… more
Abstract:HYPRES proposes to develop an expert system to automate operation of its advanced digital-RF receivers (ADRs). In Phase I, the focus will be on two classes of mature superconductor chips that are present in all ADRs built to date: ADCs with digital decimation filters (DDFs) and ADCs with… more
Abstract:Detectors utilized in high energy and nuclear physics research, have, historically, been instrumented with FET amplifiers operated in the cryogenic environment. These amplifiers require heated operation and suffer from large 1/f noise, are very sensitive to microphonic pickup, and dissipate high… more

Abstract:Low or narrow bridges are often hit by legal-sized commercial vehicles and oversize vehicles often strike regulation bridges. In both cases the accidents result in extensive property damage, possible personal injuries and even death, and increased traffic congestion. Past attempts to warn drivers… more
Abstract:Job related injuries cost the railroads over $1 billion annually and from 2005 through 2008 30.3% of those injuries occurred in the rail yard. A majority of the accidents were attributed to slips, trips and falls from the worker slipping on ballast or tripping on other trackside objects. IEM is… more

International Electronic Machines (IEM), a leader in multispectral imaging and smart video processing, will design the Smart Integrated Situational Awareness System (SISAS), based on patented and unique panoramic imaging… more
Abstract:Over time the stabilizers used in PAD/CAD devices to prevent NOX buildup are depleted, which can lead to unintended detonation, and has done so on occasion. Current technology solutions cannot accurately measure these stabilizer concentrations in situ. International Electronic Machines Corporation… more
Abstract:The defense and industrial communities are faced with major challenges to monitor, process, and optimize the operation of complex systems/processes. Of particular interest to the Navy are critical shipboard auxiliary systems that support chilled water and electrical processes. The complexity of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Seromas are a common post-operative complication particularly prevalent following ablative and reconstructive surgeries. Without timely intervention post-operative seromas can lead to significant patient morbidity including infection, tissue necrosis, permanent… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Twenty-six percent of the population twenty years and over have destructive periodontal disease (gt 4 mm loss of bone height). Alveolar bone height correlates well with subsequent tooth loss. Moreover, it has been foundthat periodontal disease correlates with… 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.
