Abstract:In vitro skin models have shown excellent potential for the evaluation of acute skin irritation. However, the current systems lack the ability to discriminate between mild and strong irritants and require labor-intensive protocols that limit test throughput. To address the three critical limitations… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Over the last decade, bacterial and archaeal communities have been identified in virtually every ecological niche examined, from acid mine drainage to tropospheric clouds to the human body. Understanding the make-up andinteractions within these communities is… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: ORBITEC proposes to develop and synthesize a safe, high performance, high density solid oxidizer to replace Ammonium Perchlorate (AP) in solid propellants for use in booster, tactical, and strategic systems. The long sought replacement for ammonium perchlorate remains an unanswered… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: ORBITEC proposes to develop and demonstrate a family of Low-Cost Thrust Chambers (LCTC) for use in future NASA exploration systems. Substantial cost savings will be realized in the production of the LCTCs with ORBITEC"s innovative hybrid fabrication technique. Hybrid fabrication… more
Abstract:ORBITEC proposes to develop high strength cast aluminum alloys for use in Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV) structures. Using a new casting technique developed by MSOE, the cast alloys HPAC structures will achieve material properties similar to those of forged structures. The casting process is… more
Abstract:ORBITEC proposes to develop the Recoilless Launcher Propulsion System (RLPS), a means of propelling a warhead from a shoulder-mounted recoilless launcher which will greatly reduce the risks posed to the operator by the back blast from such launchers, including over-pressure, high sound levels, and… 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.
