Abstract:DIAMOND FILMS ARE CONTEMPLATED FOR USE IN OPTICAL SYSTEMS DUE TO THEIR INERT NATURE AND HENCE THEIR ABILITY TO PROTECT THE VITAL OPTICAL SYSTEMS FROM THE HARSH ENVIRONMENTS. POLYCRYSTALLINE DIAMOND FILMS PRODUCE SCATTERING CENTERS DUE TO THE DIFFERENT IMPURITIES, GRAIN SIZES AND ORIENTATIONS THAT… more
Abstract:1In this SBIR proposal, Mathtech first describes the Life Cycle Cost process, including information on types of models, types of costs, usefulness of various costing methodologies in the various life cycle phases, and descriptions of analogy, parametric, and engineering estimating methodologies.… more
Abstract:THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES PHASE I OF AN EFFORT TO PROVIDE COMPREHENSIVE QUANTITATIVE MEASUREMENTS OF MICROWAVE PROPAGATION AT LOW ALTITUDES (I.E., BELOW SEVERAL HUNDRED FEET) ABOVE THE SURFACE OF THE OCEAN. THE OVERALL OBJECTIVE OF THE EFFORT IS TO PROVIDE EXPERIMENTAL DATA FOR USE IN THE VERIFICATION… more
Abstract:This project, conducted under the "Advanced Systems and Technologies for Future Naval Warfare" topic, is directed at substantially increasing the U.S. Navy's minehunting capability. It applies a unique radar waveform from an airborne platform with the objective of increasing the present mine… more
Abstract:1The new high-powered sources for active sonar systems like MSS are expected to produce a much larger amount of "data", much of which is clutter. This situation will greatly complicate the information processing (IP) tasks, especially in the area of the already difficult data association problem. At… more
Abstract:TACTICAL DECISION AIDS, TDA, SYSTEMS ARE UTILIZED BY THE BATTLEFIELD COMMANDER IN A DYNAMIC, INFORMATION FILLED ENVIRONMENT. WITH THE CONTINUING INCREASE IN DATA AND INFORMATION AVAILABLE, AND WITH THE CONTINUING SHORTAGE OF EXPERT PERSONNEL, THE CRITICAL REQUIREMENTS OF FUTURE TDA SYSTEMS ARE FOR… more
Abstract:THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE HAS IDENTIFIED THE INCREASING LIKELIHOOD OF COMBAT IN URBAN ENVIRONMENTS. RECENT YEARS ARE RICH WITH EXAMPLES OF THE MILITARY'S NEED TO PERFORM SUCCESSFULLY IN BUILT-UP AREAS. THE LOGISTICS REQUIREMENTS UNIQUE TO A MILITARY OPERATION IN AN URBAN AREA CALL FOR CAREFUL… more
Abstract:The current method of assessing the condition of paint protective coatings is by human visual evaluation using ASTM pictorial guides for comparison and condition definition. This is purely subjective and the results are affected by area size and geometry and human interpretation. By developing an… more
Abstract:THE PUBLIC DOMAIN MACH VERSION 3.0 WILL BE DEVELOPED INTO A COMMERCIAL OFFERING FOR THE IBM RISC SYSTEM/6000. THE EFFORT TO TARGET AN EXISTING ADA COMPILER FOR THE IBM RISC SYSTEM/6000 TO THIS VERSION OF MACH WILL BE INVESTIGATED, AND IF APPROPRIATE, PROTOTYPED. ANTICIPATED BENEFITS: THE MACH OS IS… more
Abstract:IMPROVED RELIABLE ACCELEROMETERS SUITABLE FOR WIDE DEPLOYMENT IN SEISMIC ARRAYS ARE NEEDED FOR EARTHQUAKE PREDICTION STUDIES. IN RESPONSE TO THIS NEED OPTICAL TECHNOLOGIES, INC. (OPTECH) IS PROPOSING A FIBER-OPTIC ACCELEROMETER SYSTEM THAT PROVIDES THE DESIRED PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENTS OF BROAD-BAND,… more
Abstract:DEVELOPMENT OF A CAPABILITY FOR EXPLOITING TRANSIENTS EMITTED BY A SUBMARINE DURING AN AIRBORNE ASW SEARCH OPERATION WILL REQUIRE MULTIPLE SONOBUOY PROCESSING TECHNIQUES WHICH CAN: OPERATE IN PARALLEL WITH NORMAL NARROWBAND/BROADBAND PROCESSING; PROVIDE SOME DEGREE OF AUTOMATION FOR TRANSIENT… more
Abstract:GIVEN A SET OF IMAGES OF SEA SURFACE PARAMETERS, IT IS POSSIBLE TO CLASSIFY LAND AND OCEAN AREAS. HIGH CHLOROPHYLLCONCENTRATIONS IN ESTUARIES CAN INDICATE PLANKTON BLOOM CONDITIONS. BY EXAMINING SUCH IMAGES, WETLAND, ESTUARY, AND COASTAL RESOURCES CAN BE MONITORED. HOWEVER, THE OPERATIONAL USE OF… more
Abstract:INADEQUATE MEANS OF DISPOSAL OF USED SYRINGES HAVE CONTRIBUTED LARGELY TO THE SPREAD OF BLOOD-BORNE INFECTIOUS DISEASES BY ILLICIT USE. ALTHOUGH THE FOCUS IS OFTEN ON AIDS/HIV, THE SPREAD OF HEPATITIS AND OTHER INFECTIOUS DISEASES IS EQUALLY DANGEROUS. WHILE HOSPITALS AND HEALTH CARE WORKERS DO HAVE… more
Abstract:EXPERIMENTS ON HUMAN CANCER CELLS IN VITRO HAVE BEEN COMPLETED AND DEMONSRATE THAT CERTAIN ANTICANCER DRUG-INDUCED CHANGES ARE DIRECTLY CORRELATED WITH, AND PREDICTIVE OF THE CELL KILLING EFFECTS OF THE SAME DRUG. THESE RESULTS FORM THE BASIS FOR THE EXPERIMENTS IN THIS RESEARCH. THE SPECIFIC GOAL… 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.
