Abstract:THE GENETIC DISORDER ALPHA-THALASSEMIA-1 IS FOUND WITH HIGHEST FREQUENCY IN INDIVIDUALS OF SOUTHEAST ASIAN ANCESTRY. WHILE THE HETEROZYGOUS FORM MAY HAVE NO ADVERSE HEALTH EFFECTS EXCEPT FOR SLIGHT ANEMIA, THE HOMOZYGOUS CONDITION (KNOWN AS HYDROPS FETALIS) CAUSES FETAL DEATH. THERE IS NO READILY… more
Abstract:THE PROBLEM IS THAT WHEN ARMY TRAINEES REACH THEIR UNITS THEY HAVE FORGOTTEN MUCH OF THE MATERIALS PRESENTED AT THEIR SCHOOLS. THE NEED IS TO IDENTIFY THE TYPES OF SKILLS AND METHODS THAT ARE MOST LIKELY TO RESULT IN ROBUST INSTRUCTION, TO PROVIDE A FIRM BASIS FOR ON-THE-JOB-TRAINING (OJT) AT THE… more
Abstract:SCREENING BAGGAGE AND PASSENGERS FOR CONCEALED WEAPONS AND EXPLOSIVES REMAINS A SIGNIFICANT COMPONENT OF THE AVIATION SECURITY SYSTEM. RECENT TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES ENHANCE OUR ABILITY TO OBTAIN INFORMATION ABOUT THE SHAPE AND COMPOSITION OF CONCEALED ITEMS. HOWEVER, THE DEVELOPMENT OF DECISION… more
Abstract:Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a potentially life-threatening disease that affects significant numbers of neonates. Low-birthweight, premature infants are at greatest risk. The disease has implications for growth and development of those children who survive it. However, long-term impacts can be… more
Abstract:Blood banks have an ongoing training need and have recently been mandated by the American Association of Blood Bankers (AABB, 1991) to provide competency evaluations of its staff members. Thus, there is an immediate need to develop criteria for training and methods for evaluating the skills… more
Abstract:US Army Countermeasures (CMs) equipment developers have the responsibility to develop the capability to protect US Army aircraft against older, current and future theats. Under their direction new infrared (IR) jammers and decoys are being developed. Some of these new jammer CMs are designated to… more
Abstract:The project proposed involves the detailed design, thermal analysis and performance simulation of Switched Reluctance electric machines for principle applications for the More-Electric-Aircraft. Considerable published data for gas turbine electric accessory motors has been addressed to base line… more
Abstract:MTL proposes to perform the preliminary design for a very high speed integrated circuit hardware design language (VHDL) behavioral simulation acceleration engine, and to demonstrate the critical aspects of that design though simulation. The approach will be to use the QUEST parallel simulation… more
Abstract:MTL System, Inc. proposes to develop a methodology for automatic compensation of cockpit electronic display devices suitable to the display technology, cockpit environment, and in full consideration of the human factors which impact upon display visibility. This methodology will be demonstrated at a… more
Abstract:MTL Systems, Inc. (MTL) and Calspan Corporation propose to develop and qualify the preliminary design of a Reconfigurable, Real-time Radar Warning Receiver (RWR) simulation. The development will take advangtage of existing development platforms and performance modeling tools to develop and… more
Abstract:Two essential elements of any physical security system are the security sensors themselves and the communications network which interconnects them. Highly sophisticated biometric sensors which provide rapid, accurate personnel identification are currently available from several vendors and it is… more
Abstract:The need to distribute information from localized data bases to remote sites efficiently has become increasingly important. Due to the reaction time constraints, latency on the information must be held to a minimum. A solution is described which will interface wo existing data base equipment and… more
Abstract:AN EFFICIENT TECHNIQUE FOR DETERMINING OPTIMAL GROUNDWATER USAGE IS CRUCIAL TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN IMPROVED APPROACH FOR MANAGING AND PLANNING WATER RESOURCES. A METHOD, BASED ON THE BOUNDARY INTEGRAL EQUATION METHOD (BIEM), IS PROPOSED FOR PERFORMING ANALYSIS OF ROUNDWATER FLOWS. THE NEW APPROACH… more
Abstract:A MATHEMATICAL MODEL, USING THE DUAL-POROSITY CONCEPT, IS BEING INVESTIGATED FOR THE TRANSPORT OF CONTAMINANTS IN UNSATURATED FRACTURED ROCKS. THE FORMATION IS VISUALIZED AS A COMPOSITE OF TWO OVERLAPPING CONTINUA: THE POROUS MATRIX AND THE FRACTURES. THESE TWO MEDIA COMMUNICATE VIA INTERPOROSITY… more
Abstract:Recycling of plastic containers has been retarted by the lacck of demand for plastic scrap. This is due to the dearth of products manufactured from recycled plastics. One of the reasons for this is the poor quality surface finish which is obtainable from recycled plastics such as high density… more
Abstract:THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROGRAM ARE TO: (A) DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF "GC" DESIGN CONFIGURED BEARINGS, MANUFACTURED WITH SELECTED POWDERED MATERIALS TO ELIMINATE FIELD MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE REQUIREMENTS OF HMMVV UNIVERSAL JOINTS AND FIVE TON TRUCK SLEEVE BEARINGS AND TO (B) DEMONSTRATE THIS… more
Abstract:THE PROJECT WILL ADDRESS THE DEVELOPMENT OR ADAPTATION OF ASSISTIVE DEVICES TO FACILITATE COMMUNICATIONS AND LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT, AND ACCESS TO MAINSTREAM ENVIRONMENTS BY INFANTS, TODDLERS, PRESCHOOLERS, CHILDREN AND YOUTH WITH DISABILITIES, SPECIFICALLY CHILDREN WHO MUST RELY ON AUGMENTATIVE AND… more
Abstract:THE DIFFICULTIES IN MEETING THE MATERNAL AND INFANT HEALTH OBJECTIVES FOR YEAR 2000 DO NOT LIE EXCLUSIVELY IN IMPROVING SERVICE DELIVERY SYSTEMS FOR PREGNANT WOMEN AND YOUNG INFANTS. ALSO CRUCIAL ARE THE MEASURING DEVICES AND TOOLS THAT ARE AVAILABLE TO ASSESS WOMEN AND CHILDREN MOST "AT RISK", TO… 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.
