Abstract:Nickel/metal hydride batteries are attractive from the standpoint of environmental considerations, their inherent safety and good performance characteristics Presently available Ni/M-H batteries have an energy density of 55 Wh/kg and 178 Wh/L, two to three times that of Ni-Cd batteries. Present… more
Abstract:This Phase I program will explore the potential for a unique new paraffinic phase change material (PCM) to provide a lightweight, passive portable environmental control system (PECS). This program will also introduce the new concept of PCM self-regeneration within microcapsules attached to or… more
Abstract:This program would further investigate the use of microencapsulated water and PCM materials to regulate the phyllosphere microclimate on plants for mycoherbicides (biological herbicides). The targeted mycoherbicide will be Colletotrichum malvarum on prickly sida (Sida spinosa). Phase I results… more
Abstract:This SOCOM Phase I effort will use a unique combination of new materials to construct a superior and lightweight body armor. The research team brings together innovative technologies and products being developed by three experienced small business: fabric woven from SPECTRA fiber with a Neoprene… more
Abstract:The use of computer modeling in the area of design optimizing has become practical due to recent advances in hardware and software technology. Several sophistcated software tools are avialable for three dimensional modeling and dynamic visual and numeric anaylsis of complex surfaces. This proposal… more
Abstract:The primary objective of this three phase (Definition; Detail Design & Development; Implementation) project is to create the generic core of a computer based Production Cost Model (PCM) to support Program Offices in their attainment of several Acquisition Reform Initiatives. The PCM supports the… more
Abstract:Quantitative energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) x-ray microanalysis provides important information regarding the distribution of elements within a biological sample. The low elemental concentrations in biological specimens require dwell times of several seconds livetime to obtain spectra with… more
Abstract:Enterically transmitted pathogens cause far more illness than toxicants such as lead, mercury, pesticides, and all other forms of chemical contamination. The world has become increasingly vulnerable to the spread of old and flew infectious organisms and water-borne pathogens as illustrated by… more
Abstract:This proposal describes the development of an artificial neural network (ANN) for breast cancer diagnosis. The system is trained to aid in the decision to biopsy those patients that have suspicious mammographic findings. This system will decrease the variability and increase the specificity of the… more
Abstract:In Phase I we will: 1) Determine which instructional approaches, design elements, and interactions are most effective for teaching first-graders nutrition, and 2) Evaluate the feasibility of implementing an interactive multimedia nutrition program in the public schools. Using input from… 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.
