Abstract:QUEST Integrated, Inc. (formerly Flow Research) proposes to develop and fabricate compliant coatings synthesizing dolphin skin/blubber for use on underwater vehicles to achieve drag and flow noise reduction. Guided by the theory of the hydrodynamic response of viscoelastic materials, the design of… more
Abstract:A programmable, pulse code modulation (PCM) encoder for telemetry applications is proposed. Existing encoders do not provide for on-board processing of signals and, in general, are not very sophisticated as compared to current available technology. We propose development of a modular digital signal… more
Abstract:Current IR systems are extremely susceptible to electromagnetic and radio frequency interference (EMI/RFI) because they possess large apertures that present ideal front-door entry paths for EM radiation. Significant amounts of EM radiation (400 MHz - 18 GHz) can penetrate and couple to the IR sensor… more
Abstract:This Phase I study will show the feasibility of ultrahigh-pressure wagerer coke removal and laser-optic inspection for the renewal of jet engine fuel tubes and manifolds. Ultrahigh-pressure, 55,000 psi, pure waterjets offer significant advantages as the basis for a new coke removal method for… more
Abstract:This proposal addresses the development of a versatile, low-cost tool and techniques for its application to the repair of composite materials in jet engine components. This tool will consist of a waterjet, abrasive-waterjet, or an abrasive suspension jet. The repair process may include several… more
Abstract:Stereoscopic imaging is a powerful technique that can provide (1) 3D visual inspections (for both surface and interior features), (2) 3D measurements, and (3) 3D defect algorithms. We propose a PC-based microelectronics inspection system that takes advantage of not only stereo imaging, but also… more
Abstract:Rapid Metal Fabrication (RAMFAB) is a technique in urgent need of development. Since the introduction of rapid prototyping (RP) systems such as StereoLithography and Fused Deposition Modeling for creating non-metallic prototype parts of arbitrary geometry, manufacturing industries have been waiting… more
Abstract:This project will investigate the feasibility of alloying MoSi, to improve its low temperature ductility and fracture toughness without degrading its oxidation resistance and creep strength while maintaining a similar density. The project objective is to lower the brittle-ductile transition… more
Abstract:The U.S. Army uses millions of threaded components in its weapon systems, many of which are nonstandard or Class III Safety Critical and therefore must undergo rigorous dimensional quality control. The inspection of threaded parts using conventional surface-contacting gauges is costly,… more
Abstract:The proposed study will evaluate the feasibility of using an optical sensor (structured lighting/image processing) to detect gap and tape/tow widths for automated composites fabrication processes such as tape laying, tow placement, and filament winding. The sensor will serve as a real-time,… more
Abstract:Novel true-time-delay optical beamforming networks for phased array antennas are devised using nonlinear high efficiency grating technology for free space switches. The switchable gratings are formed using nonlinear volume phase diffraction grating composites. The resulting optical time delay… more
Abstract:This software development project will produce, disseminate, and support an important class of numemodeling resources for NIH-funded, academic bioengineering research groups. The suite consists of 3Ddifference computer modeling codes for ultrasound propagation and scattering, piezoelectric… more
Abstract:NONDESTRUCTIVE TESTING, IDENTIFICATION, AND REPAIR OF WELD DEFECTS HAVE BEEN DOCUMENTED TO CONSUME AS MUCH AS 25% OF THE TOTAL WELD PRODUCTION COST IN PIPELINES, SHIP FABRICATION, AND POWER GENERATING SYSTEMS. INFRARED SENSOR CONTROLLED WELDING SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN DEMONSTRATED THAT WOULD GREATLY… more
Abstract:The objective of this research is to improve the efficiency of kidney dialysis. Efficiency of massdetermined by clearance rate across the membrane. One of the primary restrictions to clearance is thcondition at the membrane surface which exists in either tube or channel. The aim is to increase… more
Abstract:We will design, package, and evaluate active electrodes that are reliable and easily applied withoupaste and abrasive skin preparation. They will be used for EEG monitoring, especially for steady sta(SSEP) measurements in pediatric patients to estimate their sensory thresholds. An electronic… more
Abstract:We will isolate a temperature sensitive mutant of streptavidin that will bind biotin at 4C but notbe accomplished by chemical mutagenesis to saturate the streptavidin gene with mutations. A scheme ftemperature sensitive mutant will be employed. The library of mutants and the enriched library… 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.
