Abstract:OPERATIONAL APPROACHES FOR THE RETRIEVAL OF TEMPERATURE AND MOISTURE PROFILES FROM DMSP MICROWAVE AND MILLIMETER WAVE SOUNDER DATA ARE BASED ON EXPLOITATION OF THE SPECTRAL INFORMATION CONTENT OF THE DATA ALONE. REGRESSION RETRIEVALS ARE CONSTRAINED TO A SOLUTION SPACE DEFINED BY THE CLIMATOLOGICAL… more
Abstract:THE PROBLEM OF DEVELOPING COMPUTER-EFFICIENT THERMOSPHERIC DENSITY MODELS IS ADDRESSED, AND DESIGN INVESTIGATIONS FOR IMPROVING THE ACCURACY AND SPEED OF SATELLITE ORBITAL PREDICTIONS IN LOW EARTH ORBIT ARE PROPOSED. EARLY COMPUTER MODELS OF THE ATMOSPHERE WERE DERIVED USING QUASI-STATIC DIFFUSION… more
Abstract:This study proposes the development of an infrared all sky imager to provide accurate cloud property information with high spatial and temporal resolution. Infrared detection provides both day and night capabilities. An innovative aspect of the concept is exploitation of the information content of… more
Abstract:AEREON'S Wide Aperture Surveillance Platform (WASP) concept represents an effective, affordable solution to primary problems of airborne radar surveillance: 360 degree coverage, high altitude, long endurance and high power aperture. Very large phased array antenna panels, triangularly installed… more
Abstract:CUBIC BORON NITRIDE (C-BN) FILMS ARE ATTRACTIVE FOR COATING WEAR PARTS BECAUSE OF THEIR HARDNESS AND OXIDATION RESISTANCE. ITS WIDE BANDGAP AND HIGH THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY MAKE C-BN USEFUL FOR ELECTRONICS APPLICAITONS. A TECHNIQUE OF DEPOSITING PHASE-PURE C-BN FILMS AT COMMERCIAL RATES IS NEEDED TO… more
Abstract:THE EMERGENCE OF EO MULTISPECTRAL IMAGING TECHNOLGOY MOTIVATES EXLORATION OF POTENTIAL IMPROVEMENTS IN AUTOMATIC TARGET RECOGNITION (ATR) SYSTEM PERFORMANCE USING NOVEL SPECTRAL/SPATIAL TECHNIQUES. SUCHCONCEPTS OFFER A PROMISING COMBINATION OF COMPLEMENTARY TECHNIQUES, WITH THE SPECTRAL COMPONENET… more
Abstract:THE EXHAUST GASES LEAVING AN AIRCRAFT THAT IS FLYING AT ALTITUDES IN THE HIGH TROPOSPHERE AND LOWER STRATOSPHERE (30,000 TO 60,000 FT) ARE SUBJECT TO COLD TEMPERATURES AS THEY MIX WITH THE AMBIENT AIR. AERODYNE RESEARCH, INC. (ARI) HAS RE- CENTLY MADE SIGNIF ICANT CONTRIBUTIONS IN TACKLING PHYSICAL… more
Abstract:ALUMINIZED COMPOSITE SOLID ROCKET MOTORE (SRM'S) ARE A KEY COMPONENT OF US SPACE LAUNCH AND STRATEGIC ROCKET SYSTEMS. THESE SYSTEMS, WHICH INCLUDE THE SPACE SHUTTLE'S STRAP-ON BOOSTERS, PRODUCE COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF ALUMINA (A1203) EXHAUST PARTICLES IN BOTH THE MICRON AND SUBMICRON SIZE REGIONS. A… more
Abstract:IN-SITU PERFORMANCE CHARACTERIZATION OF ADVANCED GLAZING MATERIALS COULD HELP MANUFACTURERS AND BUILDING INSPECTORS IN THE IMPLEMENTATION OF UTILITY INCENTIVE PROGRAMS. ONE OF THE MORE WIDELY USED ADVANCED GLAZING MATERIALS IS THE MULTIPLE PANE WINDOW, IN WHICH THE SPACE BETWEEN THE PANES IS SEALED… more
Abstract:There is a need for non-intrusive instrumentation to characterize the drop size distribution and volume flux in support of on-line engine/inlet icing tests. The ducts may vary from three to twelve feet in diameter with flow field speeds from Mach 0.2 to 0.5. The Phase Doppler technique offers the… more
Abstract:This porposal is concerned with the development of a rugged, accurate and non-intrusive electro-optical device to reliably measure the unsteady airflow into a reciprocating internal combustion engine. The principle of operation of the proposed sensor is laser Doppler velocimetry, a technique that… more
Abstract:WE WILL DEVELOP A SIMPLE, ECONOMICAL, AND RAPID IN VITRO BREAST CANCER CELL BIOASSAY THAT CAN BE USED TO DETECT, DISTINGUISH BETWEEN, AND DETERMINE THE BIOACTIVITY OF ESTROGENS AND ANTIESTROGENS. TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN ESTROGENS AND ANTIESTROGENS WE WILL MONITOR DIFFERENCES IN THEIR MOLECULAR… more
Abstract:The Aeronix Phase I task will demonstrate the application of an innovative parallel processing computer architecture and parallel processing programing envirorment to a class of problems associated with the real time detection, recognition, acquisition and tracking of multLple objects in a high rate… more
Abstract:The air turbo rocket (ATR) offers significant potential in terms of cost/performance ratio for tactical missiles. The high specific impulse of the ATR significantly increases range over solid rockets, while maintaining critical missile weight and launch system geometry constraints. The higher thrust… 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.
