Abstract:Widespread damage in aging aircraft is becoming an increasing concern as both civil and military fleet operators are extending the service lifetime of their aircraft and increasing risk of crack-like damage of aircraft components. The scientific community found that fatigue damage initiation occurs… more
Abstract:Critical Technology (CT) lies within a variety of electronic circuits across US Navy weapon platforms and must be adequately protected from theft and unintentional transfer. Traditional protective hardware enclosures are bulky, require power, and require special thermal considerations because they… more
Abstract:Tanks and enclosures were named the top corrosion expense on Navy vessels, accounting for $204 M in annual direct costs. To control these costs, there is a need for an automated monitoring system to assess coating damage and cathodic protection (CP) system performance. During the Phase II program,… more
Abstract:The ability to rapidly detect and identify infectious organisms is critical for the accurate diagnosis of seasonal and sporadic outbreaks, emerging pathogens and agents of bioterrorism. Accurate detection requires high quality biological specimens, which
Abstract:Luna Innovations is developing stabilization technology for increased long-term storage of various biological moieties (e.g. enzymes, nucleic acids, and whole cells). This unique stabilization matrix allows for extended cell viability lifetime, minimizing cell maintenancerequirements while retaining… 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.
