Abstract:Mainstream has been developing a unique wireless Vehicle Monitoring System (VMS). As discussed in this proposal, prior internally funded efforts have already demonstrated key elements of this decentralized, low-cost, and easy-to-install system. This proposal also contains the results of extensive… more
Abstract:Extended operation of exploratory systems on the surface of planets like Venus, means that techniques to cool system electronics to essentially room temperature (30ÂºC) while the ambient temperature is over 470ÂºC must be developed and demonstrated. This proposal discloses a patent-pending… more
Abstract:The U.S. Department of Energy is currently seeking technologies that can decrease the weight and thermal insulation associated with personal protective clothing/equipment (PPC/PPE). The call for this technology has stemmed from the poor working conditions associated with workers in contaminated… more

Abstract:Unnecessarily high battlespace fuel consumption degrades operational capability, increases force balance problems, exposes refueling convoys to high risk, and increases operating and support costs. Currently, military shelters are cooled by vapor compression air conditioners powered by diesel… more
Abstract:Current refrigerant pumping technology lacks the ability to circulate a liquid-vapor mixture with substantial flow resistance, which impedes development and implementation of two-phase cooling technology. Common pump designs will hydro-lock and mechanically fail instantly or suffer performance loss… 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.
