Abstract:Aerosol particles are known to affect the global climate through cloud formation. Globally, it is believed that ~50% of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) originate from atmospheric new particle formation and growth. Sulfuric acid vapor plays a key role in new particle formation, although detailed… more
Abstract:Nitrous oxide, N2O, is one of the most important greenhouse and ozone-depleting gases in the atmosphere, with levels that are increasing in part because of soil emissions and agricultural practices. New, improved instruments are needed to quantify the sources and sinks of nitrous oxide and to… more
Abstract:We plan to propose an LED-assisted ignition technique for lean-burn internal combustion engines. It has been known for decades that lean fuel/air mixture is difficult to ignite than the stoichiometric mixture. The proposed technology is based on enhancing chemical reactivity of fuel-air mixtures by… more
Abstract:Methane is the second most important atmospheric greenhouse gas after CO2 yet its global sources and sinks are still inadequately characterized. Monitoring the isotopic composition of atmospheric methane is one of the most promising approaches to closing the methane budget. Detailed process… more
Abstract:Aerosol particles affect the radiative balance of the earth directly, by scattering and absorbing solar and terrestrial radiation, and indirectly, by acting as cloud condensation nuclei. It is now recognized that the atmospheric loading of aerosols can exert an influence on the … more
Abstract:There is a need for extremely lightweight low power instrumentation for real-time measurement of isotopic variants of carbon dioxide (CO2) in ambient air, suitable for use on un-manned aerial vehicles, to allow better quantification of sources and sinks of this major greenhouse gas in remote areas… more
Abstract:Successful intelligence analysis requires analysts to wade through massive stores of uncertain data to associate concepts, individuals, locations, and resources. Current data systems are either designed to support massive data search and retrieval, or automated analysis, but lack the flexibility to… more
Abstract:Establishing timely, trusted, and comprehensive Navy Cyber Situation Awareness (NCSA) requires analytic methods that put into context the information drawn from multiple sources and alerting mechanisms, including intrusion detection outputs, network health diagnostics, activity-based alerting, and… more
Abstract:Increases in data volume and diversity place disproportionate burden on decision makers, who must manually manage datasets with tools that are insensitive to their missions, tasks, and objectives. In time-critical situations, information management is more likely to consume decision makers"time… more
Abstract:CdZnTe remains the material of choice for room temperature semiconductor detection of X- and -ray radiation, but the availability of high performance material is limited and the cost is high. In this project we will build upon our success in crystal growth and annealing processes that have resulted… more
Abstract:Utilizing spatial multiplexing and load-balancing, this proposal increases the capacity and resilience of the BFTN. The present design of the BFTN underutilizes the power of"wireless"networking of multiple transmitters and receivers to establish meshed high-bandwidth TCP/IP communications.… more
Abstract:The Hearing Armor, LLC non-linear earplugs, without moving parts or electronics, can protect a Marine"s hearing while permitting the Marine to hear spoken commands and retain situational awareness in combat and non-combat settings. Through SBIR Topic N123-154 Phase I the Hearing Armor… more
Abstract:As the military collects more experience using solar energy as a man-portable power source, the strengths and weaknesses of existing technologies are becoming clear. While solar power has proven itself as a viable source of power, the existing power managers - the electronics interfacing the solar… more
Abstract:Gen9 is developing a DNA synthesis platform that aims to produce synthetic DNA products at an industry leading length, price point and turnaround time. In this Phase II proposal we outline our approach to extend the processes we developed during the Phase
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Measurements of combustion and gas dynamic properties inside gas turbine engines and augmentors are needed to aid in engine development, performance testing and evaluation, and for verification and validation of combustion modeling codes. Flame emission spectra in the ultraviolet and… more
Abstract:This program will build on the work of the Large-Area Psec Photo-Detector (LAPPD) program, under which a transformative design for low-cost large-area photodetectors that use 8 square micro-channel plates (MCPs) is being developed. The technology will be extended by reducing the pore size of these… more
Abstract:The high energy physics (HEP) community, the scientific and medical communities and the public at large, require the availability of high sensitivity photo- sensors with improved spatial and temporal resolution that can be scaled to large areas, and manufactured in a robust, durable, and compact… more
Abstract:The combination of X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) with x-ray emission spectroscopy (XES) provides unique diagnostic analysis of both the structure and chemical composition of complex heterogeneous materials. The penetration of X-rays make this method ideal for studying 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.
