high-density lipoprotein cholesterol… more
Abstract:Currently fielded UAVs cannot robustly detect and avoid obstacles on their own, which leaves the bulk of their capacity unused. While ideally one would like to build UAVs which can "see and avoid" as well as human pilots, in practice this level of autonomy cannot be reached in the short-term.… more
Abstract:Feasibility studies and technical analyses will be performed on a design for a very small, lightweight, cost-effective, remotely reprogrammable, two-way, software-defined-radio-based communications package called the Software Defined Transceiver (SDT). The SDT design will encompass the entire… more

Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Arrhythmias are among the most common disorders of the heart. Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is a common arrhythmia associated with significant morbidity. There are currently more than 2.5 million Americans suffering from A
Fib and there are about 160,000 new cases… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): More than 1000 American die every single day due to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), which claims more lives than breast cancer, AIDS, and lung cancer combined.1 Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICD) can provide 24-
hour monitoring of heart rhythm and deliver… more
Abstract:Capacitors are critical components in pulsed power systems for radio frequency accelerator technology. However, current capacitors have a number of limitations: (1) low energy density, (2) large size (they occupy 30-50% volume of the power electronics devices), and (3) difficulty in delivering the… 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.
