Abstract:…of diseases ranging from cancer and viral infections to metabolic disorders such as cystic fibrosis. The main hurdle to effective gene therapy remains delivery of genetic drugs at therapeutic doses. Adeno- associated viral vectors can be used as gene delivery vehicles in a… more
Abstract:… stiffness in the "Z" direction. However, they provide no thermal insulation value. Aerospace craft operating both inside and outside the earth's atmosphere experience environmental extremes which greatly tax the designer 's ability to achieve a balanced thermodynamic vehicle… more
Abstract:… varying degrees. This moisture absorption adds weight to the composite, however, it lowers the glass transition temperature. And, subsequently, the ultimate strength of the resin holding the composite together, in the total composite matrix. For aerospace vehicles that slip… more
Abstract:The makeup and location of hostile forces can be identified for battlefield surveillance or target acquisition by deploying a network of autonomous acoustic sensors. Each sensor would listen for acoustic emissions from ground vehicle traffic. Such emissions would then be… more
Abstract:We propose a novel, electronically steered, MMW terminal for mobile vehicle-to-satellite communication networks. The terminal is based on a new type of all-solid-state antenna which provides much higher beam steering rates than mechanical scanners with much less complexity and… more
Abstract:… combustible fabrics. Organic and inorganic flame retardants, a smoke suppressor and a charring agent suitably encapsulated in microspheres form our flame retardant system. These microspheres are then dispersed into an acrylic flame proofing emulsion vehicle which was… more
Abstract:Direct methanol fuel cells (DMFC) are foreseen as the choice power source for electric vehicles; more immediate battery replacement applications exist in both civilian and military markets. Low cost of methanol and its high energy density as well as inherent safety are the… more
Abstract:The Navy has unprecedented capabilities for gathering sensory information through platforms such as autonomous vehicles. This information is exploited for a variety of purposes, including rapid retargeting, situational awareness, and surveillance. A critical need facing the… more
Abstract:The operation of an underwater vehicle (UV) is very complicated due to the multi-input multi-ouputs structure, numerous operational requirements and constraints, so the workload of the operator is very heavy. how to dreduce the workload of the operator while maintaining… more
Abstract:…ations, c) simulate them, d) choose the best protocol, e) determine the requirements, feasibility, and cost of standard cell and a prototype ASIC design, and f) determine the basic requirements, feasibility and cost of a VMEbus-based SCI/SX bridge, as a demonstration vehicle; … more
Abstract:IDC will develop a preliminary design of a mortar launchable, retrievable observation vehicle which will feature a very high performance camera, extended glide, inflatable wings and control by wing warping. The wings are an extension of an existing design. These features will… more
Abstract:… be developed during Phase II, integrates an imaging active pixel sensor with ultra low power analog and digital signal processing electronics and Flash memory into a small assembly which can be powered for up to one year by a small battery. 3D Silicon, the vehicle which… more
Abstract:… inertial measurement unit that provides linear acceleration and angular velocity information. Through time integration velocity, hence position, and angular direction relative to an inertial reference coordinate can be determined. Additional instruments on the vehicle will… more
Abstract:… for missile translational maneuvers. A hybrid rocket motor hot gas generator, custom thruster diverter valve assembly specialized control system and an attendant guidance algorithm should null the missile body axis rotations during a translational maneuver. Simple vehicle… more
Abstract:The need to detect and locate individual landmines and minefields using man-portable or vehicle-mounted mine detectors is expected to continue, either as a stand-alone capability or a complement to remote detection. Casualties are common, yet minimal improvements to… more
Abstract:…, both military and commercial, the developed material has. With the current packaging trends, smaller and faster, low cost high performance thermal management materials are in high demand. Military and Aerospace, automaotive applications, and electric powered vehicles… more
Abstract:… Experiments are performed investigating the range and sensitivity of the proposed detection concept. The envisioned Phase II effort will establish the robustness of the detection phenomenology and focus on development of a rugged man-portable unit as well as vehicle mounted… more
Abstract:… applications. It is the objective of this proposal to demonstrate the feasibility of this technology to develop sufficient electric power for portable computing (and other uses) from the normal movement available in activities such as walking, riding in a vehicle, etc. … 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.
