Abstract:The ability to store digital, high resolution images at high speeds (10 kHz and higher) has tremendous commercial applications. To meet this need North Dancer Labs proposes to develop a unique high-speed Erasable Holographic Optical Storage system (E-HOS) capable of recording ~100 or more 2-D… more
Abstract:Phase I of this SBIR proposal will study the feasibility of ECHO housing accompanied with Home Health Care insurance, as a revenue-generating opportunity for rural communities. The proposed objectives are summarized as follows: 1. To perform three needs assessments in the state of Vermont of… more
Abstract:The goals of the Phase I research period are to construct and test new amperometric biosensors for the determination of several serum enzymes, alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), and gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT), which are frequently associated with alcohol-related… more
Abstract:The objective of this proposal is to develop a lithium ion-selective electrode, primarily for application to the clinical determination of lithium in patients undergoing therapy for manic depression. The lithium electrodes currently available are not sufficiently selective for lithium relative to… more
Abstract:The cost and limited lifespan of strain gages for stress and vibration surveys has driven researchers to find alternate means of investigating airfoil stress and vibration. Systems based on optical sensors have been reported in the literature since the mid 1960's. These systems have been limited… more
Abstract:Clinically significant delays in language acquisition are the most prevalent developmental problemchildren. Early intervention is crucial since children with language delays are at greatly increaseddisabilities and behavioral disorders, but intervention resources are scarce and insufficient to… more
Abstract:The applicant will develop a comprehensive software application that combines three dimensional (3-stereology, spatial point analysis, and mapping brain regions of unlimited size. 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
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.
