Abstract:The objective of this project is to evaluate the efficacy of the FLP/FRT site-specific recombinase inexcising a transgenic tapetum-specific promoter driving an inverted (antisense) Arabidopsis fertilitygene, bcl1. Plants containing the antisense of bcl1 (flanked by FRT sites) will be male sterile… more
Abstract:Crucial to development of improved artillery capabilities is the fielding of tools to assist forward observers and spotter in target designation and fire direction. Notwithstanding its reliability, the conventional lensatic compass leaves much to be desired. The needle aligns itself with the local… more
Abstract:The proposed project is related to NIMH research topic Assessment of Emotional and Psychological States. The goal is to develop a screening questionnaire that assists clinicians in diagnosing the most common DSM-IV Axis I disorders seen in patients presenting for outpatient mental health treatment.… more
Abstract:Current CRT phosphors rely upon 3-12 micron sized semiconductor grains to convert the electron beam emitted by the cathode into light. These phosphors suffer from low conversion efficiencies (25%), and efforts to improve these systems over the past few decades by altering the stoichiometry have… more
Abstract:The objective for development of a modular gas generator Sur face Ship Torpedo Defense (SSTD) launch canister is to provide U.S. and allied surface ships with a low cost, low maintenance, highly reliable system that produces no environmentally hazardous by-products. This system could… more
Abstract:Investment castings have well served both the military and commercial markets in such areas as waveguides and splitters for microwave applications, and for connectors, housings, heat sinks and mechanical parts for electronics, optical, instrumentation, and medical devices. Tomorrow's higher RF… more
Abstract:The development of a new process for the continuous separation of w aste plastic particles by type into purified streams for sale and recycling is proposed. This approach is based on the segregation of particles by density in liquid-fluidized bed classifiers (LFBC). The primary objective of the… more
Abstract:A novel method for preparing carbon electrode structures having applications in electrochemical double layer capacitors (EDLCs) is described. The method for preparing these structures employs carbon (graphite) nano fiber materials and results in an electrode having both high surface area and high… more
Abstract:Marine Acoustics, Inc., proposes applying the team's operational expertise and tactical decision aid (TDA) technology to the development of a TDA that innovatively applies tactical oceanography principles to the employment of multistatic ASW assets. The foundation of the TDA module architecture… more
Abstract:A true single longitudinal mode distributed feedback (DFB) fiber laser will be developed. The first and only, a preliminary demonstration of this laser has just been published, but it is not truly single frequency. We shall develop and commercialize the world's first DFB fiber laser with Bragg… more
Abstract:In this Phase I study, we will demonstrate high power, continuous wave (CW) single spatial mode laser action at the 1 um wavelength. There are two innovative aspects in our proposal: the incorporation of commercially available very high power, not necessarily single mode, semiconductor laser diodes… more
Abstract:Recent world events have underscored the changing political and military requirements of the United States and its Allies to respond to situations not previously envisioned as primary missions of their Navies. Military missions which require the extensive use of mines, anti-ship cruise missiles… more
Abstract:At a time when the Navy is actively moving more training from shore to shipboard, it is critical that quantitative tools and measurements be developed and used to ensure that Navy training is meeting established objectives. The Navy wants to know that this movement away from more costly shore-based… more
Abstract:As the ability to communicate with the health care system becomes more important, there isa risk that minority populations, particularly non-English speaking and undeserved persons, will fallfurther behind in the level of care they receive. We are currently developing a general healthcare planfor… more
Abstract:Under the current U.S. Navy budget constrained environment it is desirable to get added functional performance from existing sonar systems. One such case is the need to provide instantaneous bearing ambiguity resolution for threat torpedoes at tactically significant ranges via U.S. Navy Surface… more
Abstract:When waveguides of high power radar systems are installed in corrosive environments gaps tend to form at the joints. These gaps change the characteristic impedance of the waveguide, causing reduced system efficiency and potential damage to the radar. An indication of these gaps are arcs generated… more
Abstract:Expendable mine-hunting countermeasures require a propulsion system that is acoustically and magnetically quiet while being light in weight, reliable, and inexpensive. Proposed for development and demonstration is a composite spring energy storage device. Calculations show that a spring weighing… more
Abstract:Passive detection and classification of missiles, aircraft, and units with internal combustion engines and rocket motors beyond the visual horizon is a capability of substantial tactical significance. Electromagnetic radiation from ions in engines has been identified as a potentially exploitable… more
Abstract:Approaches to Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) as they stand today cannot support the Navy's need for shore-based or deployed mission rehearsal. An advanced intelligent interface to extend the DIS Semi-Automated Forces (SAF) model is proposed that will be capable of supporting networked,… more
Abstract:PRESENT TRAIN DETECTION SCHEMES RELY LARGELY ON A LOW RESISTANCE THROUGH THE TRAIN'S WHEELS TO PERTURBATE A STABLE ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT. WHILE ELEGANT IN PRINCIPLE, THE DESIGN IS PLAGUED BY OXIDE FILMS AND MATERIAL BUILDUP ON THE RAIL, SNEAK PATHS THROUGH THE BALLAST AND OTHER UNCONTROLLABLE VARIABLES… 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.
