Abstract:The project utilizes artificial intelligence techniques, including neural networks and genetic search to address mission planning and route calculation needs for cruise missiles. The project will employ parallel computing techniques consistent with MIMD computer architectures.
Abstract:Self-calibrating, low-cost, microprocessor based, combined soil volumetric water content, conductivity, and temperature sensor is proposed herein. The objective of this feasiblity study is to conduct tests to evaluate the device under a variety of conditions and to demonstrate the validity and… more
Abstract:The treatment and disinfection of water for drinking continues to be a major public health issue. It is clear that disinfection methods involving chlorine compounds result in the formation of byproducts that constitute a health risk. The proposed work addresses the removal of the disinfection… more
Abstract:MANY LOW RANK COALS (ESPECIALLY LIGNITES) HAVE ONLY MARGINALLY HIGH SULFUR CONTENTS, RESULTING IN EMISSIONS OF 2 TO 3 POUNDS OF SULFUR DIOXIDE (SO2) PER MILLION BTU. THIS SULFUR IS PRESENT IN ABOUT EQUAL AMOUNTS OF PYRITIC, SULFATIC, AND ORGANIC SULFUR. THEREFORE, PHYSICAL CLEANING METHODS ARE… more
Abstract:RURAL COMMUNITIES OFFER COMPARATIVELY FEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE EMERGENCE AND/OR GROWTH OF BUSINESS. THE LOCAL MARKET OFTEN IS TOO SMALL, AND LARGER MARKETS ARE TOO DISTANT. HOWEVER, THESE COMMUNITIES FREQUENTLY MAINTAIN TRADITIONAL CRAFTS AND ETHIC FOODS THAT ARE APPEALING TO URBAN MARKETS. THIS… more
Abstract:IN MANY RURAL AREAS, THE RATE AT WHICH NEW BUSINESSES ARE FORMED IS INADEQUATE TO SUPPORT ECONOMIC GROWTH AND JOB CREATION. PREVIOUS RESEARCH INDICATES THAT INDIVIDUALS AGED 30 TO 49 WITH BUSINESS EXPERIENCE ARE MOST APT TO START ENTERPRISES BUT, AFTER YEARS OF OUTMIGRATION, ARE LARGELY ABSENT FROM… more
Abstract:Sioux Manufacturing Corporation will develop a novel processing method for carbon-carbon composites manufacture with reduced processing time and costs. Current carbon deposition processes are unacceptably slow and expensive. The new feature of our process is the deposition of iron oxide onto the… more
Abstract:ETHER OXYGENATES THAT WILL BE IN HIGH DEMAND FOR ADDITION TO REFORMULATED GASOLINE CAN BE PREPARED FROM AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS OR BYPRODUCTS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE WORK PROPOSED HERE IS TO EVALUATE NEW CATALYSTS FOR THE CONVERSION OF BIOMASS PRECURSORS OF OLEFINS WITH A BRANCHED STRUCTURE THAT ARE… more
Abstract:PRODUCT: THE PRODUCT IS A HAND-OPERATION RETROFIT FOR THE CHILDREN'S ELECTRIC VEHICLE, SUPER BIGFOOT MARKETED BY BIGFOOT 4X4, INC. OF FORT WAYNE, INDIANA. THE PRODUCT EQUALIZES THE CAPABILITIES OF HANDICAPPED AND NON-HANDICAPPED CHILDREN IN THE OPERATION OF THE VEHICLE. HANDICAPPED CHILDREN AND… more
Abstract:THE INVESTIGATION HAS THE FOLLOWING OBJECTIVES: 1. ESTABLISH THAT MODULAR NEURAL NETWORKS, WORKING SYNERGISTICALLY WITH GENETIC SEARCH, PROVIDE A UNIQUELY POWERFUL MEANS OF INTELLIGENTLY CONTROLLING HEURISTIC MATHEMATICAL ALGORITHMS FOR LARGE-SCALE VEHICLE ROUTING AND SCHEDULING PROBLEMS. THE DESIGN… more
Abstract:CURRENT METHODS FOR APPLYING AGRICULTURAL CHEMICALS, SUCH AS FERTILIZERS, HERBICIDES, AND PESTICIES, REQUIRE PREMIXING OF CONCENTRATED CHEMICALS WITH WATER AND POSE PROBLEMS OF DISPOSING OF THE UNUSED MIXED CHEMICALS AND THE PREMIX TANK WASH SOLUTION IN AN ENVIRONMENTALLY ACCEPTABLE MANNER. IN… more
Abstract:WITHIN THE CRYSTAL UPON THE PARTICLE'S COLLISON. THE SENSORHAS BEEN DESIGNED TO RESPOND TO THE MOMENTUM RANGE OF 2.6 X 10 -12 TO 8.9 X 10 -7 G-M/S. THIS CORRESPONDS TO PARTI-CLES HAVING A DIAMETER RANGE OF 100 TO 1500 MICROMETERS TRAVELING AT VELOCITIES OF 2.0 TO 20 M/S, THE MAIN CONSTITU-ENT OF… 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.
