Abstract:We propose to build an electrostatically focused klystron that exploits recent breakthroughs in scandate cathode technology. We have built cathodes with greater than 100 Amps/cm2 emission. This project offers an opportunity to test those cathodes in real world devices. Because of their small size… more
Abstract:Modular software development helps enable application developers to quickly write sophisticated applications. However, in most instances only a small fraction of the functionality included in a particular software components is needed. Not only is there a performance cost, but the prevalence of… more
Abstract:To meet the critical security needs of the Department of Homeland Security and others, we propose two methods for providing a secure root of trust for
mobile devices. One method is designed to integrate as easily into existing systems, while the other requires deeper integration but… more
Abstract:It is all too common for a project to create software that is hard to maintain, inefficient, bug-ridden, late, and over-budget. Software flaws resulting from this current state of affairs are no longer an inconvenience but are the primary source of software security vulnerabilities. Motivated by… more
Abstract:Unmanned vehicles are becoming an increasingly valuable tool within the Department of Defense, and related technologies are beginning to appear in commercial systems.

Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In this Phase I we will develop and evaluate the first unit of an online serious game for foster and primary parents of neglected children. The goal of the training is to learn how parents in these two historically compartmentalized roles can improve their… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Marital discord is a significant risk factor for a range of negative mental and physical health outcomes.1, 2 Individuals in unhappy relationships experience increases in stress, anxiety, functional impairment, and depressive symptoms3 and are at significant risk… more
Abstract:This proposal outlines a project aimed at providing a radical improvement in ion source technology that can be applied to the mass spectrometric analysis of actinides. The state-of-the-art secondary ion mass spectrometers (SIMS) employ the duoplasmatron ion source to create the primary ion beam for… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this project is to create a web-based, interactive health communication application [IHCA]1 that promotes healthy physical and social development in young girls and adolescents with mild to moderate intellectual disability (MTM-ID). The program, … more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The purpose of this application is to develop and evaluate the feasibility of an interactive, web-based HIV prevention curriculum for youth with intellectual disabilities (ID) (I.Q. approximately 55 through 70).

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.
