Abstract:WE EILL DEVELOP A WIRELESS DIGITAL POLYGRAPH LINK WITH SOPHISTICATED DIGITAL ERROR CORRECTION, WHICH WILL PROTECT TRANSMITTED PHYSIOLOGICAL MEASUREMENT SIGNALS FROM NOISE DEGRADATION AND FROM DROPOUTS CAUSED BY SUBJECTS MOVING AROUND WHILE THEY ARE BEING MONITORED. WE WILL ADD THE WIRELESS DIGITAL… more
Abstract:THE EMOTIONAL COST AND ECONOMIC COST OF PUTTING MOBILITY CHALLENGED STUDENTS INTO MAGNET SCHOOLS IS TOO HIGH A COST TO PAY IF THOSE OBSTACLES WHICH PREVENT THESE STUDENTS FROM MAINSTREAMING CAN BE REMOVED. WITH MOBILITY IMPAIRMENTS, BATHROOMING IS OFTEN THE MOST SIGNIFICANT OBSTACLE. IT IS TOO… more
Abstract:THE PROBLEM IS THAT MARINE MAMMALS ARE GETTING KILLED AT AN ALARMING RATE. RECENT EVIDENCE SUGGESTS THAT HALF OF ALL (NONCALF) RIGHT WHALE DEATHS ALONG THE ATLANTIC COAST RESULT FROM HUMAN ACTIVITIES (KRAUS 1990). COLLISIONS WITH COMMERCIAL VESSELS MAY BE A MAJOR FACTOR IN THE LACK OF RECOVERY OF… more
Abstract:An eight month study is proposed on the fundamentals of a new system of subsurface barrier called Hydrodynamic Enhanced Barrier System (HEBS). The mechanism of HEBS is that it can, via oscillatory motion of working fluids or steady state circulating flow, remove contaminants from groundwater… more
Abstract:THE CURRENT REFRIGERANTS USED IN THE VAPOR CYCLE SYSTEMS ARE SCHEDULED TO BE PHASED OUT AND REPLACED WITH REFRIGERANTS THAT ARE ENVIRONMENTALLY LESS HAZARDOUS. THESE REFRIGERANTS ARE BEING DEVELOPED TO REPLACE THOSE CURRENTLY EMPLOYED IN RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS AND WILL ALSO FIND USE… more
Abstract:THE PURPOSE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO ESTABLISH THE FEASIBILITYOF UTILIZING COLOR COMPUTER VISION AND NEURAL NETWORK TECHNOLOGIES TO AUTOMATE THE WHITE CELL DIFFERENTIAL CURRENTLY PERFORMED BY MEDICAL TECHNOLOGISTS. AUTOMATION OF THE MICROSCOPIC BLOOD DIFFERENTIAL PROCEDURE IS NEEDED TOIMPROVE THE… more
Abstract:MARINE AQUACULTURE IN THE UNITED STATES IS A GROWING INDUSTRY. AS THIS INDUSTRY GROWS THE POTENTIAL FOR POLLUTION BY WASTES ASSOCIATED WITH FISH CULTURE AND FISH PROCESSING INCREASES. THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF BIOLOGICAL WASTE ARISING FROM UNDIGESTED FEED AND OTHER FISHWASTE AS WELL AS… more
Abstract:FUTURE MILITARY SYSTEMS WILL HAVE AN INCREASING NEED TO ACHIEVE A HIGHER AND MORE COMPLETE LEVEL OF SENSOR FUSION THAN CURRENTLY EXISTS. THE RATIONALE FOR SSNSOR FUSION IS GENERALLY WELL ACCEPTED AND RELATES TO PERFORMANCE, RELIABILITY, MODULARITY, AND EXTENSIBILITY. IT IS NOW DESIRED TO INTEGRATE… more
Abstract:Direct digital modulation for hardware-in-the-loop simulations of airborne radar systems is currently digital multiplier limited. A digital multiplier technology which can support 8-bit modulation rates of at least 250 MHz with a maximun incurred signal delay of 100 nanoseconds is required. To… more
Abstract:THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS TO DESIGN AN IN-FLIGHT TRANSFER ALIGNMENT SCHEME FOR THE INERTIAL MEASUREMENT UNIT (IMU) OF A HELICOPTER-LAUNCHED INERTIALLY GUIDED MISSILE. THE MISSILE, MOUNTED ON A HELICOPTER WING, IS SUBJECTED TO LARGE AMPLITUDE VIBRATIONS. CURRENT TRANSFER ALIGNMENT… more
Abstract:THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A PORTABLE AUTOMATIC CONTROL SYSTEM FOR THE INTRA-AORTIC BALLOON PUMP. THE SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED BY PROVIDE MAXIMUM IMPROVEMENT IN THE ENERGETICS OF THE FAILING CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM. THE CONCEPT IS TO FURNISH, DURING ASSISTANCE, AN OPTIMAL BALANCE BETWEEN… more
Abstract:THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS DEVELOPMENT OF PRACTICAL, MULTIVARIATE MODEL PREDICTIVE CONTROL (MPC) FOR FOSSIL POWER PLANTS. THE APPROACH USED HERE INVOLVES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A GENERIC, REDUCED-ORDER MODEL (ROM) WHICH CAPTURES THE DOMINANT STATIC AND DYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF POWER… more
Abstract:An adaptive attitude control system for a space-based interceptor will ameliorate the effects of torque disturbances when firing a divert thruster with the line of force offset from its center of mass. The adaptive control algorithm is based on a simplified version of a model reference adaptive… more
Abstract:Conventional guidance algorithms for exoatmospheric kinetic energy weapons are based on algorithms developed for endoatmospheric missile systems. With the appropriate assumptions and definitions, the algorithms can be shown to be optimal. Although they perform well under limited circumstances, the… more
Abstract:The assignment problem is a linear programming problem in which the goal is to determine the assignment of sources to destinations so as to minimize the cost. This arises in numerous areas, including assigning interceptors to threats in battle. Generally, the solution is very time consuming when the… 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.
