Abstract:Intractable pain is chronic pain for which there is little or no effective therapy. We will create a therapeutic agent that will chemically ablate peripheral pain nerves involved in intractable pain and, thereby, treat painful human disorders in which the pain does not serve a useful purpose. The… more
Abstract:PHASE I OBJECTIVES ARE TO RESEARCH EXISTING SERVICE INTEGRATION FINDINGS AND INITIATIVES TO DETERMINE THE ORGANIZATIONAL AND KEY INDIVIDUAL FACTORS RELATING TO SPECIFIC KNOWLEGE, INTERPERSONAL AND PROBLEM-SOLVING/DECISION-MAKING SKILLS, AND COMPETENCIES ALONG WITH PRACTICES AND BEHAVIOURS USED BY… more
Abstract:THE GOAL OF THE RESEARCH IS TO DETERMINE WHETHER A NEW MUTANT OF PSEUDOMONAS AERUGINOSA ETA WITH IMPAIRED CELL SURFACE RECEPTOR BINDING ACTIVITY WILL ALLOW THE CONSTRUCTION OF IMMUNOTOXINS WITH SUPERIOR CYTOTOXICITY TO IMMUNOTOXINS CONSTRUCTED WITH RICIN A CHAIN. THE LONG TERM OBJECTIVE OF THIS… more
Abstract:THERE HAS BEEN A LONG-STANFING NEED FOR ALL-WEATHER, DAY-NIGHT, PASSIVE IMAGING SENSORS TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF NUMEROUS APPLICATIONS. THE MICROWAVE AND MILLIMETER WAVE (MMW) SPECTRAL REGIONS ARE OPERATIONAL CANDIDATES FOR THIS NEED BECAUSE THE ATMOSPHERE HAS WINDOWS THAT ARE RELATIVELY… more
Abstract:THIS PROPOSAL OUTLINES A FIRST-PHASE PLAN FOR CONSTRUCTING AN ENVIRONMENT TO DESCRIBE, PROTOTYPE, AND MANAGE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT PROCESSES. KEY TOOLS OF THIS ENVIRONMENT INCLUDE SEMANTICALLY RICH GRAPHICAL EDITORS TO DESCRIBE PROCESSES AND AN INTERPRETER FOR PROCESS SIMULATION AND INTERACTIVE… more
Abstract:During flight testing, an aircraft's performance is evaluated using data obtained from sensors placed throughout the airframe. The data is transmitted to a central data acquisition center via hardwire connections. This hardwire system has been found to be unsatisfactory due to high costs incurred… more
Abstract:A TECHNIQUE WILL BE DEMONSTRATED WHICH CAN PROVIDE ACCURATE AND QUANTIA TECHNIQUE WILL BE DEMONSTRATED WHICH CAN PROVIDE ACCURATE AND QUANTITATIVE ELEMENTAL ANALYSIS IN REAL TIME DURING EPILAYER GROWTH AND PROCTATIVE ELEMENTAL ANALYSIS IN REAL TIME DURING EPILAYER GROWTH AND PROCESSING. THE… more
Abstract:When making a structure like AlGaAs or SiGe by heteroexpitaxial growth techniques, it would be nice to know when one atomic layer is completed so that the next can be started. The quality of the device depends on accurate control of the thickness and purity of each layer. Currently, no way exists to… more
Abstract:IMPROVED MANAGEMENT OF HYDROCARBON RESERVOIRS MAY BE THE MOST IMPORTANT KEY TO MAINTAINING OR EXPANDING THE PETROLEUM/NATURAL GAS PRODUCTION CAPABILITY OF THE U.S. IN THE WORLD MARKET. NEW INTERWELL SEISMIC IMAGING OF THE DISTRIBUTION OF RESERVOIR DESCRIPTION, SIMULATION, AND MANAGEMENT. THIS… more
Abstract:The automated inspection of gas turbine components has proven to be difficult due to their complex geometry. While ultrasonics has demomstrated excellent capabilities in detecting and characterizing the erosion and corrosion on turbine components from the hot effluent gases, it's application details… more
Abstract:Higher performances from gas turbines by increasing turbine speeds, loads and temperature place increased emphasis on the operation and reliability of engine components such as bearings and gears. The fatigue lives of such components are severely reduced by the presence of residual tensile stresses,… more
Abstract:OUR OVERALL GOAL IS TO CREATE A VIDEOTAPE SERIES WHICH TRAINS PARENTS TO BETTE HANDLE PROBLEMS WITH THEIR ADOLESCENT CHILDREN. THE VIEDEOTAPES ALSO WILL ENHANCE THE COMMUNICATIONS SKILLS OF BOTH PARENTS AND ADOLESCENTS. IT WILL BE DESIGNED TO BE USED BOTH INDEPENDENTLY BY FAMILIES OR AS A PART OF… more
Abstract:The goal is to design and produce a video training program for psychotherapy practitioners and researcher wishing to employ the techniques and principles of Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT). IPT's efficacy for the treatment of major depression has been demonstrated in clinical trials. The treatment… more
Abstract:THE GOAL OF AMERICAN INDUSTRY LOOKING TO THE FIERCE COMPETITION OF THE NEXT DECADE IS TO MANUFACTURE PRODUCTS (1) AT REDUCED COSTS, (2) WITH SHORTER LEAD TIMES, AND (3) AT A HIGHER QUALITY. COMPONENTS THAT WOULD ASSIST IN ACHIEVING THIS GOAL INCLUDE (1) AUTOMATED PROCESS PLANNING, (2) DESIGN… more
Abstract:Despite the popularity of CAD/CAM systems today, over 90% of all drawings in the U.S. are not computer processable as they exist only in paper or microfilm. Without the development of technology to convert raster drawing to product data model, this situation is like to persist for some tine as over… more
Abstract:ELECTRICALLY CONDUCTING ORGANIC POLYMERS ARE A NEW CLASS OF LOW-COST LIGHTWEIGHT CONDUCTING MATERIALS THAT HAVE A LARGE NUMBER OF IMPORTANT PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS. THESE POLYMERS ARE OF PARTICULAR INTEREST AS A MEANS OF FABRICATING ENZYME-BASED ELECTROCHEMICAL BIOSENSORS THAT HAVE UNIQUE… more
Abstract:THE GOAL OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP SMALL-SCALE ELECTROCHEMICALLY BASED SYSTEMS FOR THE GENERATION OF HIGH CHEMICAL PURITY WATER FOR FIELD MEDICAL APPLICATIONS. POSSIBLE USES FOR THIS TECHNOLOGY INCLUDE STERILIZATION AND REMOVAL OF ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS FROM MEDICAL WASTE WATER AND FOR THE… 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.
