The mathematical anprinciples underlying the methods are well established. The software will be Microsoft Windows(R)… more
Abstract:This proposal deals with the development of an advanced life support testbed at the United Stated Antarctic Program's (USAP) Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. This test facility is currently being developed through the CELSS Antarctic Analog Program (CMP). The purpose of the CMP is to provide NASA… more
Abstract:RESEARCHERS ARE EXPANDING AND DEVELOPING WIND TURBINE TECHNOLOGY FOR POLAR APPLICATIONS AS AN AVENUE TO EXPANDING THE ABILITY TO DEVELOP WIND AND WIND HYBRID ENERGY PROJECTS IN COLD WEATHER, AND IN ARCTIC AND POLAR ENVIRONMENTS. THE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM IS FOCUSED ON THE IDENTIFICATION OF TECHNICAL… more
Abstract:OVER THE PAST 25 YEARS THERE HAVE BEEN MORE THAN 85 COLLAPSES OF STRUCTURES UNDER CONSTRUCTION THAT HAVE BEEN DIRECTLY ATTRIBUTABLE TO FORMWORK FAILURE. WE WILL DEVELOP SENSING SYSTEMS AND TECHNIQUES APPLICABLE TO THE MONITORING OF CONSTRUCTION SITE SHORING AND SCAFFOLDING. THIS WORK WILL BE… more
Abstract:THE OBJECTIVE IS TO DEVELOP A MINIATURIZED SIX DEGREES-OF-FREEDOM (6D) TRACKING APPARATUS FOR USE WITH THREE DIMENSIONAL (3D) ULTRASOUND AND MEDICAL IMAGING EQUIPMENT. SUCH A TOOL COULD ENABLE CLINICIANS TO STUDY HUMAN ANATOMY AND BODILY FUNCTIONS IN THREE DIMENSIONS. IN PURSUIT OF THIS GOAL,… more
Abstract:There is presently a great deal of interest in defecting specific genetic mutations or variants thatcould provide information about an individual's predisposition to a wide variety of diseases, predict anindividual's sensitivity to specific chemicals or drugs, or be used as prognostic indicators for… more
Abstract:This proposal describes the design and testing of new enzyme-based amperometric sensors for the neurochemically important species, choline, acetylcholine and glutamate. In these devices, the electrical communication between the flavin redox centers of an oxidase and an electrode is achieved via a… more
Abstract:The design, fabrication, and testing of a pump rig supported by a magnetic bearing system is described. This rig will boost pump technology by: (1) permitting accurate determination of impeller force and moment coefficients by electromagnetic impulse excitation, orbit control, and bearing force and… more
Abstract:In the area of clinical coagulation research, much attention is focused on the molecular eventswhich occur before, during, and after anticoagulant and antithrombotic therapies. For purposes ofmonitoring the safety, efficacy and long-term effects of such therapies, there exist a number ofcommercially… more
Abstract:Factors V and VIII are procofactors which are essential components of the blood coagulationprocess. Deficiency in either of these proteins is associated with severe bleeding disorders, hemophiliaand para-hemophilia. Deficiency states of these proteins can be caused by their proteolytic… more
Abstract:The requirements for a low cost, low loss high power density optical interface for the transmission of laser energy through a fiber optic cable for ordnance initiation. The proposed design is an innovative non-imaging optical concentrator that concentrates the input laser beam from 2mm down to 200… more
Abstract:Composite materials comprising an active piezoelectric phase and a passive polymer phase offer significant advantages over their single phase counterparts. These include higher electromechanical performance and vastly enhanced design versatility. Several combinations of polymer/ceramic connectivity… more
Abstract:THIS PHASE I SBIR PROPOSAL WILL INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF ADULT FOSTER CARE AS A REVENUE-GENERATING OPPORTUNITY FOR RURAL COMMUNITIES. THE PROPOSED OBJECTIVES INCLUDE: 1) DETERMINING INDIVIDUAL STATE REGULATIONS IN THE NORTHEAST REGARDING CAREGIVER TRAINING, BUILDING AND ENVIRONMENTAL… more
Abstract:APPROXIMATELY 210 BILLION DOLLARS WAS SPENT IN 1992 ON CORROSION IN THE UNITED STATES. ACCORDING TO THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CORROSION ENGINEERS, THIS IS ROUGHLY FOUR PERCENT OF THE GNP. MANY METHODS OF DETECTION HAVE BEEN DEVISED WITH SOME SUCCESS. HOWEVER, AS THE NUMBERS REVEAL, THE PROBLEM… more
Abstract:Existing balloting codes do not consider all of the forces and interactions that contribute to balloting of hypervelocity projectiles. This effort will result in the definition of a complete mathematical model and the design of an appropriate, user friendly, computational model to predict… more
Abstract:The work involves the design and testing of new enzyme-based amperometric glucose sensors. Electrical communication between the flavin redox centers of glucose oxidase and an electrode is achieved via a network of donor-acceptor relays chemically bound to a highly flexible, insoluble, high molecular… 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.
