Abstract:Improved methods for frozen storage of glycerolized red blood cells (RBCs) are needed both tomeet military and civilian needs in periods of high demand. Existing deglycerolization ssytems are labor intensive and considered "open" systems resulting in a maximum storage of 24hrs following washing. The… more
Abstract:Babet Engineering proposes to investigate the following five (5) possible methods of fume control or recovery for ocean-going vessels: 1. Vapor Balancing - Fumes would be transported back to the tank from which the fuel was pumped. 2. Absorption - i. A chilled lean oil (above 32 degrees F) system… more
Abstract:Wilfred Baker Engineering, Inc. proposes to develop a shaped charge case that weighs significantly less than the traditionally-used metal case with performance comparable to metallic case shaped charges. The proposed case will house a shaped charge which will be suitable for clearance of anti-tank… more
Abstract:Wilfred Baker Engineering, Inc., Proposes to develop an explosive system to clear a wide variety of obstacles from the surf zone and craft landing zone during an amphibious assault. The proposed approach will be suitable for clearance of individual obstacles or systematic clearance of a lane. The… more
Abstract:AS PAVEMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS BECOME THE PRIMARY TOOL BY WHICH AGENCIES ALLOCATE THE FUNDS FOR PAVEMENT REHABILITATION, THE ACCURACY OF DISTRESS DATA. ONE OF THE LEAST EXPENSIVE BEING MANUAL DISTRESS SURVEYS. HOWEVER, MANUAL DISTRESS SURVEYS HAVE THEIR LIMITATIONS. INACCURACIES THAT ARISE IN THE… more
Abstract:We will develop a computer program for automating the testing of medical diagnostic imaging equipmeprogram will run o the vast majority of existing PACS computers which many radiology departments alrdevelopment will provide testing methods for most medical image quality parameters which are much… more
Abstract:A novel quantum well infrared photo transistor, which we call QWIPT, is proposed. By taking the advantage of the almost perfect alignment of the conduction band in GaAsSb/InAlAs system, it is possible to integrate such quantum wells into a QWIPT to improve the optical gain and, therefore, the… more
Abstract:Commercial tools have been developed that support the graphical construction of behavioral models of reactive systems and implement various forms of analysis of such user-developed models. These methods rely primarily on simulation, that is, the execution of a model on sample data. We propose to… more
Abstract:A fuzzy logic and artificial neural network (ANN) hybrid software model of vestibular system function will be investigated to improve assessment of the vestibular systems. Recent advances in fuzzy logic and ANNs have provided new modeling techniques to narrow the gap between the model and real… more
Abstract:The auditory brainstem response (ABR) is one of several auditory evoked responses which have a variety of military and clinical applications (2,6). Currently the ABR is analyzed using frequency-dependent filtering techniques over very long windows (up to several hundred seconds). CMI proposes to… more
Abstract:This project represents the potential for a major advancement in helicopter fire fighting capability for forests and grasslands. Although early work with helicopters attempted to maximize the quantity of water delivered for initial fire attack, the Light Aircraft Foam Application System (LAFAS)… more
Abstract:The determination of the angular orientation of a radar or electro-optic assembly almost always involves the use of gyros. Except for very crude applications, gyros are always used in conjunction with accelerometers, their combination being referred to as an Inertial Measurement Unit or IMU. Gyro… more
Abstract:Until recently, polymer coatings were stripped from aluminum alloys using volatile organic compoound solvents. This is being phased out for environmental reasons. Mechanical techniques like PMB also have severe environmental impact. New methods need to be explored. The approach in this proposal… more
Abstract:MODERN SENSORS PRODUCE VAST AMOUNTS OF SIGNAL INFORMATION WHICH MUST BE PROCESSED QUICKLY AND ACCURATELY TO PERFORM SURVEILLANCE AND TARGET TRACKING FUNCTIONS. PREPROCESSING OF THE SENSOR DATA IS PERFORMED FIRST TO REMOVE BACKGROUND SIGNALS, DETECT SPIKES AND PEAKS, FILTER THE SIGNAL, ENHANCE EDGES… 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.
