Abstract:All military and many commercial aviators are required to undergo periodic hypoxia training to recognize the onset of hypoxic conditions and practice recovery skills. Current training is performed with the Reduced Oxygen Breathing Device 2 (ROBD2) which mixes oxygen and nitrogen to produce reduced… more
Abstract:Footprints trails left on unimproved roads during illegal border crossings are often useful starting places for Border Patrol Agents to begin their pursuits. Currently searching for footprints involves CBP agents driving over long stretches of road and visually searching for signs of human… more
Abstract:Lithium-ion batteries with improved safety and that maintain high specific energies, high powers, and wide temperature ranges are needed for the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) and other platforms. Current lithium-ion batteries contain a highly flammable electrolyte and can combust under failure… more
Abstract:Platelets play a central role in hemostasis and are responsible for many inherited and acquired bleeding disorders and thrombic events in human beings. A significant portion of post-trauma deaths are related to coagulopathy or hemorrhage events for both injured soldiers and civilian patients. … more
Abstract:Burn injuries constitute 5-20% of combat casualties during conventional warfare. Nonviable tissue within the burn predisposes it to microbial colonization and subsequent infection. The goal of burn care, especially at early echelons, is to control infection until the injury either spontaneously… more
Abstract:Our warfighters are at great risk of large area burn wounds inflicted by incendiary devices during combat operations. These casualties display high fatality incidences as the wounds are highly prone to infection, further deterioration and shock during transport to higher echelon levels of military… more
Abstract:Currently, the United States Military encounters many scenarios where soldiers must enter hazardous areas, while maintaining isolation from contaminants such as chemical and biological agents as well as hazardous material exposure. This requires that the soldiers"respiratory tract be isolated… more
Abstract:Lynntech, Inc. proposes the use of a novel oxidant as a powdered concentrate, that when dissolved in water, yields a potent sporicidal solution capable
of reducing spores by greater than 6-logs on a variety of surfaces. The sporicidal formulation will be tested on concrete, wood, galvanized metal,… more
Abstract:Sand/dust particles have significant detrimental effects on turbine engine performance and durability. Current inertial particle separators are inadequate to achieve filtration/separation of fine particles. A novel electrostatic method is proposed to improve their efficiency by charging and… more
Abstract:The Naval Special Warfare Group - 4 spends billions of dollars annually for energy, with a major portion of this attributed to fuel consumption on-board its combatant crafts such as the Special Operations Craft-Riverine (SOC-R). Prior research indicates the potential of utilizing H2 injection into… more
Abstract:A robust, reliable power subsystem for the MK 18 MOD 2 UUV that can provide the full range of power requirements for the UUV and its subsystems, while presenting a lower potential energy state when the UUV is in setup and static modes, is necessary. The proposed current effort will expand and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Pulsed power systems are utilized in several application platforms ranging from fuel reforming to biomedical applications. While significant advances have been made in development of solid state technology based power systems, the need for faster pulse rates as well as higher voltage… more
Abstract:Our combatants deployed in operational environments which have high airborne particulate matter (PM) levels are at serious risk of developing respiratory and cardiovascular disease. Unfortunately no standardized PM protective equipment can currently be issued due to limitations for extended wear… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Chromium is one of the most widely used industrial metals. Several million workers worldwide are estimated to be exposed to chromium compounds in a variety of industries, including electroplating, welding, and chromate painting. Hexavalent chromium (a.k.a., chromate or Cr(VI)) via… 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.
