Globally, approximately two billion people are infected with TB, with nine million newly diagnosed cases ofactive TB each year causing 1.5 million… more
Abstract:Project Summary Tumors survive cancer therapy in part by blocking the entrance and permeation of drugs into the cancer. We have developed a therapeutic, JO-1 , that selectively opens up tumors, which dramatically enhances penetration. This results in markedly increased concentrations of cancer… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: With the increasing age of current military aircraft fleets and current operational and budget environment, there is a need to increase structure reliability and availability while, at the same time, reducing maintenance costs. This is critical especially when some fleets need to be… more
Abstract:High order mode (HOM) absorbers are very important to stable operation of accelerators. It has
been very difficult, especially for superconductor radio frequency (SRF) accelerators, to find a suitable HOM absorber material that not only can function at cryogenic temperatures and
Abstract:NASA missions for planetary exploration require high power, long-life Hall thrusters. However, thruster power and lifetime are limited by the erosion of plasma channel walls. Current plasma channel insulators, BN or Borosil, have the required low secondary electron emission (SEE) but are… more
Abstract:The development of an advanced green monopropellant propulsion system could have significant benefits to a wide range of NASA space missions, from deep space satellites to manned space vehicles. However, the state-of-the-art thruster materials, refractory metals, cannot withstand AF-M315E… more
Abstract:SK realistic estimated timeline of 18 months maximum, hopefully sooner, will allow for design, engineer and testing modifications to be addressed. SK learned from Phase II that even the simple modifications can result in hours of engineering and design work. The successful completion of the DOTWASH… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Psoriasis is a chronic, genetically influenced, remitting and relapsing scaly and inflammatory skin disorder that affects 1-3% of the world's population, resulting in total annual costs of 5.2 billion in the United States in 2012. Approximately 20% of… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Systima Technologies, Inc. has developed a novel aerodynamic decelerator concept and technical approach for tailoring sounding rocket trajectories. Systima"s decelerator technology will broaden the performance range that a booster stack can achieve in order to deliver a hypersonic… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The current (such as the F-35) and the next (i.e. the 6th gen) generation of attack aircraft have a fundamental constraint. To achieve low radar cross-sections, they need to carry their weapons internal to the aircraft. This creates a conflict between the size and number of weapons that… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Systima Technologies will develop an ultra-low profile, modular carriage/release system by incorporation of various emerging technologies within the Munition Design. This system will nearly double carriage density compared to traditional bomb rack integrations (for 7"stores). By… more
Abstract:In the proposed program Systima Technologies Inc. will develop a tunable ETIVS thermal trigger device for integration into a TIVS on Navy weapon system platforms. Systima"s ETIVS trigger technology leverages Systima"s existing thermal sensing technology and expertise in design of devices… more
Abstract:Systima Technologies, Inc. is developing a non-catalytic ignition technology for advanced green ionic salt monopropellants such as HAN-based monopropellant AF-M315E. Green (non-hazardous, low toxicity) monopropellants such as AF-M315E offer significant advantages in performance and reduced handling… more
Abstract:Systima in collaboration with University of Washington is developing a high performance injection system for advanced green monopropellant AF-M315E micropropulsion systems (0.1?1.0 N) for small- and micro-satellites and cubesats (100 kg-500 kg and<100 kg). The monopropellant has low-toxicity… 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.
