Abstract:The innovations proposed permit an order-of-magnitude reduction in resource requirements for Channel Electron Multiplier (CEM) instruments by (1) replacing the traditional preamplifier and discriminator with passive amplification and thresholding, (2) utilizing novel accumulators for direct data… more
Abstract:CONCURRENT ENGINEERING IS A CRUCIAL METHODOLOGY IN REDUCING DEVELOPMENT COST AND TIME OF HARDWARE AND ITS COMPLEMENTING SOFTWARE. TODAY NO TOOLS ARE AVAILABLE THAT CAN PROVIDE A TIGHT INTEGRATION OF HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT (CO-DESIGN). ASC PROPOSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF VIOOL (VHDL… more
Abstract:STRINGENTLY REGULATED OZONE NONATTAINMENT AIR QUALITY REGIONS WILL REQUIRE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ULTRA-LOW-NOX SYSTEMS. CURRENTLY, ONLY COSTLY SELECTIVE CATALYTIC REDUCTION (SCR) SYSTEMS CAN ACHIEVE VERY HIGH LEVELS OF NOX REDUCTION. INEXPENSIVE LOW NOX BURNERS, THAT CAN MEET THE REGULATIONS WITHOUT… more
Abstract:FOR OPTIMAL BENEFICATION, COAL MUST BE FINELY GROUND TO RELEASE THE PYRITIC SULFUR AND ASH INCLUSIONS. THE RESULTING CLEAN PRODUCT IS DIFFICULT TO HANDLE, TRANSPORT AND STORE. BY RECONSTITUTING THE PRODUCT THROUGH PELLETIZATION, THESE DIFFICULTIESCAN BE OVERCOME. HOWEVER, EXCESSIVE PELLETIZATION… more
Abstract:AMAIN Electronics has recently patented an entirely new focal-plane method which directly digitizes the photo-response at each pixel within a monolithic or hybrid focal-plane. This technology is broadly applicable, and offers an opportunity to significantly advance sensor technology across the… more
Abstract:Nucleic acid hybridization reactions are at the heart of a number of powerful assays used in molecular biology research and increasingly in diagnostic applications. Hybridization reactions typically require long incubation times, i. e. overnight. Recent work has demonstrated that a ribonucleoprotein… more
Abstract:THE NONLINEARITIES AND UNCERTAINTIES INHERENT IN COMPLEX DYNAMIC SYSTEMS, SUCH AS THE DEVELOPMENT OF AUTOPILOT SYSTEMS FOR AIRCRAFT, IMPOSE GREAT CHALLENGES TO LINEAR CONTROL SYSTEMS DESIGN. SEVERAL ADVANCED ROBUST NONLINEAR APPROACHES, NAMELY, NONLINEAR H-INFINITY, INVERSION-BASED CONTROL LAWS,… more
Abstract:The U.S. Navy has identified a need for development of an innovative data compression technique to facilitate distribution of video and animated environmental products over low bandwidth communication channels. To address this need, American Research Corporation of Virginia (ARCOVA) proposes the… more
Abstract:The National Institute for Mental Health has reported the need for development and evaluationof behavioral self-help core materials for the promotion of health and healthy lifestyles. Teenage mothersare a particularly important segment of the population in need of such a self-help course devoted… more
Abstract:The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has identified the need for representation, indexing, storage, and retrieval of reusable software components. To address this need, American Research Corporation of Virginia proposes the development of an icon-based software component access… more
Abstract:FIELD TRACKING OF SMOKE AND OBSCURANT CLOUDS FROM FOREST FIRES OR VOLCANOES REQUIRES DETERMINATION OF THE TWO-DIMENSIONAL CLOUD EXTENT SHOWN IN VISIBLE IMAGES SCANNED FROM VARIOUS ANGLES ABOUT THE CLOUDS. AT THE PRESENT TIME, TWO-DIMENSIONAL CLOUD EXTENT IS DETERMINED BY AN OPERATOR WHO MANUALLY… more
Abstract:THE USE OF BIOREMEDIATION PROCEDURES TO TREAT ORGANIC WASTES CONTAINING CHLORINATED SOLVENTS OR CONCENTRATED ORGANICS PROVIDES AN EFFECTIVE METHOD OF REDUCING SUBSURFACE CONTAMINATION. HOWEVER, THE TRANSITION OF MICROBIALLY MEDIATED BIODEGRADATION FROM LABORATORY STUDIES TO FIELD-BASED METHODS HAS… 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.
