Abstract:ALPHATECH has recently developed an integrated software environment for developing and testing prototype fault detection and identification (FDI) systems. It has been applied with excellent results (zero false and missed alarms, with 4% probability of deferral to the next decision time) to… more
Abstract:Millions of gas fired residential and commercial water heaters are installed nationwide. Uncontrolled NOx emissions from these units are high, relative to industrial low NOx burner emissions. New low cost approaches to control NOx are needed, to limit emission from water heaters.
Abstract:Non-attachment air quality regions will require the implementation of ultra-low-NOx boiler burner systems. Currently, only costly Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems can achieve 9 ppm NOx emissions. Alternative and inexpensive low NOx burners, that can meet the regulations without SCR, are… more
Abstract:FORAGING BEHAVIOR AND ITS INTERACTIONS WITH THE ENVIRONMENT ARE COMPLEX AND MULTI-DIMENSIONAL. SIMULATION HELPS LABORATORY BIOLOGIST AND FIELD ECOLOGISTS WORK WITH DATA AND THEORETICAL MODELS TO GAIN INSIGHTS INTO BEHAVIORAL MECHANISMS. THE INCREASING POWER OF DESKTOP COMPUTERS IS BRINGING COMPUTER… more
Abstract:This SBIR project proposes to develop a real-time control environment for smart weapon systems using the Domain-Specific Software Architecture (DSSA) approach. The innovation of this approach is to first define the architecture and then design and implement the real-time control software. In… more
Abstract:Accurate position, velocity, and attitude information is of key importance for a wide variety of moving devices and platforms. In this project, a Real-Time hardware/software (RTHS) structure is presented for designing advanced GPS/INS navigation systems, which are able to provide accurate position,… more
Abstract:The object of this phase I project is to develop and test innovative universal GPS/INS estimators based on an advanced mixed H2/H00 filtering technique. The estimators will be universal in the sense that it will not require custom filter design, while providing robustness to measurement outliers,… more
Abstract:THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE NEED FOR ADVANCED SIGNAL PROCESSING IN AIRBORNE SURVEILLANCE AND TARGETING RECEIVERS. AN INNOVATIVE REAL TIME COMPRESSIVE RECEIVER ARCHITECTURE USING SURFACE ACOUSTIC WAVE (SAW) TRANSFORMERS IS PROPOSED AS AN ADAPTIVE AIRBORNE RESPONSE MONITOR SYSTEM. PRELIMINARY… more
Abstract:There is a need for improved chemical agent collectors and preconcentrators to be used in hand held or remote Chemical-Biological (CBD) agent detection and identification systems. CBD sensing systems function as early warning and detection devices for aircraft and military personnel. A CBD… more
Abstract:PRESENT MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGIES FOR NON-VOLATILE FERROELECTRIC RANDOM ACCESS MEMORIES (FRAM) ARE NOT SUFFICIENTLY DEVELOPED TO ENSURE REPRODUCIBLE DEPOSITION OF LARGE-AREA, HIGHLY-ORIENTED POLYCRYSTALLINE PZT (LEAD-ZIRCONATE-TITANATE) THIN FILMS ON SUBSTRATES COMPATIBLE WITH SEMICONDUCTOR… more
Abstract:We will investigate and develop an interactive multimedia program for alcohol education targetedtoward children in grades 7, 8 and 9, inclusive. The program will contain interactive multimedia thatintegrates audiovisual technology, text, and graphics with computer simulated human interaction… more
Abstract:Recent advances in aerospace technology have created the demand for improved structural materials. A metastable beta titanium alloy, TIMETAL Beta-21S, has been identified as a potential alloy for application in hypersonic vehicles such as the National AeroSpace Plane (NASP) because of its high… more
Abstract:The need for simple and practical instrumentation for rapid identification and detection of biological agents has been recognized as an important research area in sensor development. Specific antibody/antigen binding, in conjunction with evanescent wave excited fluorescence sensing, has been applied… 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.
