Abstract:The proposed system will be useful for a wide range of DOE missions including comprehensive test ban treaty (CBTB) verification. One of the guiding principles for an inspection is that it be effective, minimally intrusive, timely, and cost-effective. The HyWAI addresses this problem by providing a… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Today"s Air Force satellites require a time intensive on-orbit checkout process before placing the satellite into operation. The length of time depends on the specific payload on the satellite, but can last from weeks to months. In particular, the calibration of imaging sensor… more

This Animal Detection Module (ADM) features visible and infrared cameras, a… more
Abstract:A good method for improving the survivability of soldiers on the ground is to help ensure that threats can be eliminated quickly before posing a significant threat. One way to accomplish this is to ensure that shots fired by soldiers hit targets quickly and efficiently. A soldiers preference is to… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop low-cost manufacturing processes of Vanadium Nitride (VN) based asymmetric supercapacitors. The approach is to combine the synthesis of nanostructured VN with its deposition on a current collector substrate. The combined… more

These devices will be based on low-cost VN and NiOOH with… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Congenital heart disease patients with functional single ventricle (FSV) anatomy usually require a series of surgeries during infancy and childhood in order to provide them with a chance to survive into adulthood. The second stage surgery, termed the hemi-Fontan… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This proposal describes a novel, low-cost, high-performance hand-held Doppler ultrasound imaging system to meet the clinical needs from simple vessel location to advanced vascular diagnostic techniques such as elasticity imaging. This research proposal integrates… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Current nurse call systems lack patient-centric interfaces (i.e. pillow speakers) and the ability to relay specific requests to the most appropriat providers, which negatively impacts operational efficiency. Further, existing systems neither provide a means for… more
Abstract:While thorough assessment of concrete chemistry is vital to evaluating the health of (transportation) infrastructure systems, the costly and time-consuming nature of available chemical analysis methods limit their applications. A nondestructive test method will be developed for thorough evaluation… 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.
