Abstract:Critical to determining the success of an EGS well is the measurement of the flow distribution along the open-hole length of that well. Knowledge of not only the depth but the spacing of intersected fractures is required in order to determine the sweep efficiency of fluids flowing through the… more
Abstract:NASA has numerous missions that involve radar and radiometry. In the past, the practice has been to build each system as a one-off program, which makes MMIC design unattractive from a cost perspective. In an era of reduced budgets and the need for higher efficiencies both in R & D cost reduction… more
Abstract:The synthesis of ammonia through nitrogen fixation is a vital component to all plant life and the world economy as a fertilizer and commodity chemical. The global industial production of ammonia exceeded 140MM tons in 2009 and is expected to grow to 160MM tons by 2020. Most ammonia,>90% is… more
Abstract:The US Department of Energy has a stated goal to increase the energy efficiency of turbines, and one well recognized method of achieving this is through the use of ceramic thermal barrier coatings (TBCs). However, state of the art zirconia-based TBCs have a temperature limit of about 1200oC, and new… more
Abstract:The proposed research will look at a combination of low-cost radar, stereo camera, and lidar data to generate a 3D model of the terrain ahead of a vehicle. The resulting terrain model will be automatically segmented, simplified and compressed to produce a reasonable description, which can interact… more
Abstract:Environmental Benefits: The proposed technology relates to Climate change and sustainable energy. Fatty acids are currently produced from palm oil, 80% of which comes from Malaysia and Indonesia. Both these countries have finite land available and often times rainforests are destroyed to make way… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to further develop ATX-Red, an in vivo imaging agent that becomes fluorescent in the presence of the enzyme autotaxin. Autotaxin and its product LPA are involved in numerous biological functions that generally involve cell movement… more
Abstract:There needs to better biomarkers of alcohol consumption and alcohol induced organ damage. PEth is a nonoxidative, long-lasting metabolite of ethanol consumption and alcohol related organ damage. PEth may also play a role in cell and organ damage. In this contract antibodies are made to PEth for… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Air Force has identified a need for efficient, lightweight, millimeter-wave transmitter development that supports future generations of bandwidth efficient military satellite communications and communications links between Remotely Piloted Aircrafts (RPAs), satellites and terrestrial… more
Abstract:Todays warfighter and NETT Warrior are reliant on small battery operated devices for communication, information systems, enemy detection, and battlefield management. These devices must be recharged on a regular basis to ensure sustained operation. Current charging technologies require the device to… 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.
