Abstract:This project will develop an inspection technology capable of accurately detecting and characterizing flaws and/or corrosion in multi-layered structures made of dissimilar metals. The inspection target of this project is the F-15 splice joint at wing station 155 where tapered surfaces of aluminum… more
Abstract:For reasons primarily related to a lack of a suitable lattice matched substrate and the need to integrate with Si ROIC's, there is a need for delivery of low defect density HgCdTe epilayers on Si. Despite the significant lattice mismatch between Si and HgCdTe several US companies have demonstrated… more
Abstract:Production of low cost, large format HgCdTe LWIR focal plane arrays (FPAs) requires delivery of low defect density HgCdTe epilayers on Si. Despite the significant lattice mismatch between Si and HgCdTe several companies have demonstrated high performance MBE grown MWIR (3-5 microns)-HgCdTe devices… more
Abstract:Aging fleets, increased mission demands, shrinking sources, and declining technical skills are driving the United States Air Force to evaluate better methods to obtain repair parts for its depot sustainment mission. One promising solution is organic manufacturing of critically needed assets when… more
Abstract:75239-Landfills are the single largest source of anthropogenic methane emissions in the United States, producing 7 million tons or 34% of the total methane pollution. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Control¿s Third Assessment Report, methane has a Global Warming Potential 23… more
Abstract:update tech abThe primary goal of this project is to design, develop, and demonstrate an electronic enterprise-wide single integrated environment for mechanics and engineers that will allow them to access applications based on their Lean environment. The old approaches to "systems" just don't apply… more
Abstract:The air force is phasing out the F-15 a very successful fighter jet but in a constant pursuit of air supremacy the air force has invested in a new fighter that will take its place. The f-22 will replace the F-15, it has been designed to have more stealth capabilities and be quicker and more agile… more
Abstract:Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center (OC-ALC) is one of the major service depots responsible for maintaining U.S. Air Force weapon systems, including the B-1B Lancer, the B-52 Stratofortress, the KC-135 Stratotanker, and the E-3 Sentry. Many of these planes have been in service for a great number of… more
Abstract:The goal of the Curriculum Solutions for Instruction in Middle Mathematics (CSI-M2) Project is
to improve mathematics understanding and performance of students in the middle grades by
developing and providing Education Data Management System (EDMS) software. The software
will generate an individual… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant) Increased vascular permeability or vascular leakage in the retina is an early and common feature of diabetic retinopathy and can result in diabetic macular edema. Vascular leakage is also responsible for cystoid macular edema (CME) secondary to cataract surgery,… more
Abstract:The CAMS/GO-81 databases contain massive amounts of historical maintenance data that is unusable in the present form. The primary barrier to effectively using this data for troubleshooting purposes is the "free form" nature of the text fields that describe discrepancies and corrective actions. These… more
Abstract:In order to assure accurate detection of exposure to biological warfare agents or any environmental agents, it is necessary to exclude a variety of common conditions that may confound proper diagnosis. Many groups, including ours , have found that biological warfare agents can stimulate… 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.
