Abstract:Texas Research Institute Austin (TRI/Austin) first developed non-conductive coatings (NCC) for marine connector applications in the mid 1990"s. These coatings are applied by a plasma spray process, and the patented technology has reduced the cost of ownership for the U.S. Navy by reducing down… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Elastomeric O-rings provide a critical sealing function for the hydraulic system of extended service high altitude unmanned aircraft. These new mission requirements translate into service temperatures as low as -100oF and as high as 275oF, in the presence of red hydraulic fluid. The… more
Abstract:Current phenolic-based composites used for the slippers of the MK 7 arresting gear system have insufficient wear resistance to ensure an extended service life, and are subject to swelling when exposed to shipboard fluids. The resulting unscheduled maintenance repairs are costly, and the Navy seeks… more
Abstract:Some success has been achieved with SHM of with simplified composite aircraft structures in laboratories. However, more complex structures with thickness variations, stiffeners, bonded joints; fasteners etc have been less successful. This is becoming a very serious issue, as the new H53-K uses large… more
Abstract:The use of stress physical scale models allows the Navy to design ship magnetic field signature reduction systems into Navy vessels. Current methods for fabricating the stress physical scale models (SPSM) are expensive and are not timely enough to allow introduction of the signature reduction system… more
Abstract:In Phase I we designed and evaluated a thermal stereo prototype; however, rather than focusing on a nighttime-only deliverable in Phase II, we propose to combine our Phase I experience with stereo thermal sensing and our decades long experience with traditional outdoor stereo sensing to deliver… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Satellite intelligence information is being used increasingly for real-time operations. This requires satellites that can be quickly tasked for new objectives and that can respond to opportunistic situations and external threats. Unfortunately, today's satellites rely on ground… more
Abstract:Autonomous vehicles are becoming more and more integral to our nation's defense. A DoD object is to free humans from direct control and move towards supervisory control of multiple, autonomous assets. Achieving this objective will require significant advances in decision support and supervisory… more
Abstract:NASA plans to use intelligent planetary rovers to improve the productivity and safety of human explorers. A key challenge in using robots for human exploration is orienting remote personnel about robot operations, as latency and communication constraints make eyes-on monitoring impractical. Summary… more
Abstract:It is often difficult to create autonomous robotic capabilities that match what can be achieved via teleoperation. Even though it is mechanically possible for a humanoid robot such as Robonaut 2 to perform complex coordinated tasks such as tying a knot, exchanging objects between end effectors,… more
Abstract:The essence of the problem is to allow military intelligence and operations staff to pose"tell me about"questions concerning an entity, and obtain a finished information product. There are 4 main technical challenges / sub-problems: a) Question content modeling: The question needs to be… more
Abstract:Existing clinical decision support systems (CDSS) for TBI/PTSD are not well integrated with clinical pathways, terminologies/codes, and/or electronic medical records. Further, these CDSS do not leverage the latest computing technologies such as cloud computing, speech recognition, mobile computing… more
Abstract:We propose a next-generation cloud-based social media visual analytics disaster response system that will enable decision-makers and first-responders to obtain real-time analytics (both descriptive and predictive) for situational awareness and early-warning. Social media sites like Twitter and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We synthesized a recombinant version of Mimivirus (MV) DNA topoisomerase 1B protein possessing an unusual 5'OH ligation activity (MV-ligase). This permits a novel type of probe for the detection of apoptotic cell clearance. In this project w will develop… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Air Force"s High Velocity Maintenance (HVM) initiative aims to better emulate industry"s high daily rate of touch-labor maintenance and rapid return-to-service. One barrier to HVM is scheduling of the maintenance. Currently, once an aircraft arrives at the depot, it spends… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. Based on numerous epidemiological studies and recent prospective trials; the use of daily aspirin is associated with a significant reduction in colorectl cancer incidence, deaths… more
Abstract:The eXtreme wrist computer (Xwatch) Program leverages significant previous and on-going investment in processor, RF, rapid product development, integration and miniaturization efforts by Coherent Logix, Incorporated. The proposed Xwatch program has been structured to work closely with industry to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pneumonia can be caused by a variety of pathogenic organisms including bacteria, fungi and viruses and is the leading cause of death worldwide. Even in developed countries, pneumonia continues to be the leading cause of death from infection and a serious… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Project Summary A transformational NanoNucleic delivery technology is being investigated by Savara Inc. as a promising first-in-class gene therapy candidate for lung cancer. A potent lung cancer therapy with fewer sideeffects is urgently needed due to the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Persistent respiratory methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections have become increasingly common in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients, with a prevalence of almost 30% in CF patients in the US. This is concerning, as MRSA positivity is associated… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall project objective is to further develop and clinically validate an assay, SeptiCyte(R)Triage, to improve screening and early diagnosis of conditions associated with inflammation and sepsis in Emergency Room(ER). The test will deliver clinically… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long term goal of this project is to develop accurate, rapid, high throughput and cost-effective screening for fragile X syndrome (FXS) and related disorders. FXS is the most common known genetic cause of autism andinherited intellectual disability, and… more
Abstract:Asuragen is developing a sensitive, accurate, and reliable test (BCR-ABL1 RT-qPCR Test), for quantification of BCR-ABL1 fusion transcripts to monitor residual disease in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Molecular testing for the presence and relative amount of the BCR-ABL1 translocation… more
Abstract:Title: Development of a Stand-Biased School Desk to Reduce Childhood Obesity According to the state demographer for Texas (Eschbach and Fonseca, 2009), childhood obesity has more than doubled in the past 20 years, and overweight/obesity rates for Texas fourth graders are twice the national average… 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.
