Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The rationales for the development of technology that will enable extremely cheap, high speed sequencing are well established. Chief among these is the enablement of personalized medicine. There are currently in develop
ment several technologies that promise to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Low birthweight and preterm birth are unfavorable birth outcomes that translate into serious and costly health issues, including infant morbidity and infant mortality. Research demonstrates that the health behaviors of
pregnant women are associated with not only… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Plasma fractionation is one of the largest industry segments in global therapeutic protein manufacture. The United States plays an important role in this industry since it represents the largest plasma collection and ma
nufacturing base that accounts for more… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Development of a Functional Health CAT for Managing Obesity Abstract In recent decades the prevalence of obesity has increased dramatically in the United States, causing a great burden for the individual and society. Al
though behavioral factors are among the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): With improvements in the survival of patients with HIV and AIDS, maximizing patients' functional status and well-being is increasingly an important treatment goal. Existing instruments for assessing HIV patients' self-
reported functional status and well-being… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Several recent initiatives have emphasized the importance of developing and testing new technologies to measure patient-reported outcomes (PRO). PRO measures for asthma can be substantially improved using item response
theory (IRT), and competing objectives of… more
Abstract:Mass spectrometry is a technology with wide-ranging applications in defense and homeland security. The technique is widely applicable and exceedingly sensitive, but for many molecules there can be ambiguities regarding the isomeric and conformeric form. As the number of atoms in a molecule… more
Abstract:Current shipboard emergency flow control devices for fluid systems use either pneumatic power or electric motors to close valves when a rupture is detected. These systems are dependent on the availability of the electric power or low pressure air systems. In a casualty situation, these support… more
Abstract:Present sonobuoys require manual selection and verification of functions such as RF Channel, Depth, etc. with selection and verification impossible while the sonobuoys are loaded in the launcher or in the storage racks onboard. The capability to select and verify functions while the sonobuoys are… more
Abstract:Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are attractive candidates for use as power sources in military, aerospace, commercial, and vehicular applications because they have high specific energy (up to 200 Wh/kg) and energy density (~ 500 Wh/L) and long cycle life (1,000 - 80,000 cycles currently depending on… 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.
