Abstract:An immediate requirement exists for new techniques for efficient non destructive inspection and repair of composite components such as those that will be used in the "composite weapon" that is under development. IDeally, these operations would be undertaken at the field or the depot level itself,… more
Abstract:The banning of Haon fire extinguishing agents has seriously compromised the effectiveness of fire protection for a number of aircraft applications. Efforts during the last five years have thus far identified alternative agents that have significantly reduced effectiveness (average +75% weight… more
Abstract:The banning of Halon fire extinguishing agents has seriously compromised the effectiveness of fire protection for a number of applications where they have been the 'universal' choice, especially on-board aircraft in habitable areas and 'fire zone' areas. Efforts have been underway by the chemical… more
Abstract:TAKE-ALL IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ROOT DESEASE OF WHEAT WORLDWIDE. IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST, IT CAN BE DEVASTATING AND FARMERS HAVE NO ECONOMICALLY VIABLE METHOD TO CONTROL THE DISEASE. FOR EXAMPLE, RESULTS OF A FORMAL SURVEY IN 1983 REVEALED YIELD REDUCTIONS OF 350,000 TONS OVER THE ENTIRE PNW REGION.… more
Abstract:DESCRIBED IS A NEW LOW-COST DISPOSABLE BIOREACTOR FOR THE COMMERCIAL PRODUCTION OF PLANT CELL SUSPENSIONS IN VITRO. DETERMINATION OF THE TECHNICAL AND ECONOMIC POTENTIAL OF OUR NEW TECHNOLGY IS PROPOSED. DEVELOPED BY AGRESEARCH INTERNATIONAL, INC. AND BASED ON PRELIMINARY EXPERIMENTS, OUR NEW LOWER… more
Abstract:RESEARCHERS ARE DEVELOPING A TISSUE CULTURE SYSTEM FOR THE NEEM TREE, AZADIRACHTA INDICA, TO PROVIDE A SOURCE OF PURE SECONDARY METABOLITES. THE BEST KNOWN PRODUCT OF THE NEEM TREE IS THE INSECTICIDE, AZADIRACHTIN. THE EFFECTIVENESS AND EXTREME LOW TOXICITY OF THIS COMPOUND HAVE EARNED IT A… more
Abstract:The minimization of noise is of primary importance in optimizing system performance. Active noise cancellation is one of the most promising concepts for achieving noise reduction. This cancellation is generally obtained by means of some type of an adaptive filter. The key component of such a filter… more
Abstract:AI SIGNAL RESEARCH, INC. (AISRI) PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A COMPLETE INTELLIGENT HEALTH MONITORING SYSTEM (IHMS) WHICH PROVIDES LOW-COST ON-LINE MONITORING AND DIAGNOSTIC SERVICES FOR TURBOMACHINERY. OUR APPROACH USES OUR PROVEN INNOVATIVE DIAGNOSTIC SIGNAL ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES WHICH WE DEVELOPED DURING… more
Abstract:The regenerator is a key component of a regenerative cryocooler, and the performance of the refrigerator is almost entirely set by the performance of the regenerator. This proposal presents an innovative approach to the fabrication of regenerator structures using fine wires of a metal having high… more
Abstract:The performance of pulse tube cryocoolers has developed rapidly since the introduction of the orifice by Mikullin in 1984. The proposed effort covers an additional innovation that has been shown to result in increased cryocooler performance. The replacement of the orifice by a room temperature… more
Abstract:ADVANCED METHODS FOR THE CONVERSION OF NATURAL GAS TO LIQUID FUELS ARE NEEDED SO THAT NATURAL GAS ENERGY RESOURCES CAN BE BETTER UTILIZED. IN RECENT RESEARCH BREAKTHROUGHS, CERAMIC MONOLITHS HAVE BEEN USED IN PARTIAL OXIDATION TO CATALYZE VERY FAS, HIGH SELECTIVITY SYNTHESIS OF HIGHER HYDROCARBONS… more
Abstract:PARTIAL OXIDATION REACTIONS ARE VERY IMPORTANT ROUTES TO CHEMICAL SYNTHESIS. A SIGNIFICANT FRACTION OF ALL CATALYTIC PROCESSES ARE OXIDATION REACTIONS AND THERE IS A PRESSING DEMAND TO IMPROVE YIELD AND REDUCE WASTE BYPRODUCTS IN THE SYNTHESIS OF A WIDE VARIETY OF SPECIALTY CHEMICALS. IN RECENT… 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.
