Abstract:As the military rethinks its doctrine to significantly include the importance of information, new technologies that reflect this thinking must be studied and developed. The primary concern of this project is to define methods and technology to address the total soldier-computer interface. That, to… more
Abstract:Xybion Corporation will develop a video-camera based Underwater Stereoscopic Measurement System (USMS) for making routine size estimates of close range objects (0.3 - 8.0 meters from the cameras.) The USMS will build on a set of proprietary algorithms that were developed by Xybion for stereoscopic… more
Abstract:THE MEASUREMENT OF BROADBAND LONGWAVE ATMOSPHERIC (IR) RADIATION IS A KEY ELEMENT OF THE STUDY OF THE GLOBAL CLIMATE AND GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE MECHANISMS. THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT NEED FOR REDUCING THE MEASUREMENT UNCERTAINTIES OF GROUND AND AIRBORNE-BASED INSTRUMENTATION FOR THE MEASUREMENT OF… more
Abstract:The proposed project would lead to the development of a low cost ($10-20,000) solar ultraviolet-B radiation instrument capable of measuring the narrowband direct, diffuse and global solar spectral radiation in the 300-368 nm wavelength range. This new instrument is an extension of the well-proven… more
Abstract:A feasibility study for the development of a Fuel-to-Aerostat Shuttling Transporter (FAST) is proposed. This powered vehicle would transport liquid fuel from the ground to an aerostat, guided by the non-powered control tether. The fuel carried to the aerostat will be used to produce electricity by… more
Abstract:The lithium/thionyl chloride bipolar battery configuration, with thin electrode and separator components, is ideal for high rate voltage and high power applications. The bipolar electrode design supports a high rate capability by providing shortest and least resistive current path between adjacent… more
Abstract:Lithium-ion rechargeable battery technology has been developed and commercialized by several Japanese organizations. Small cylindrical cells are now available in the United States through Japanese manufacturers for laptop computer, cellular telephone and camcorder applications. Lithium-ion cells… more
Abstract:The electrical energy storage devices of hybrid elctric vehicles must be capable of being repeatedly and rapidly charged and discharged at widely varying rates while providing a high energy density/specific energy at high operating efficiencies. As a result, it appears likely that a combination of… more
Abstract:The information produced by the Human Genome Project and related research is expected torevolutionize biology and medicine in general and recombinant DNA technology in particular. At present,however, obtaining patent protection for inventions involving recombinant DNA technology is anacknowledged… more
Abstract:Diameter of wool and other animal fibers is the most important physical characteristic in terms of its end use in textiles and it is also the most important economic criteria in marketing these fibers. Visual appraisal of fiber diameter and variability of diameter is not an accurate, consistent… more
Abstract:This proposed activity will conduct case studies of six selected United States ports to determine whether an integrated terminal information system in each of them might deliver significant benefits to port operators, port users, and shippers. Using the experience of the railroad industry as a… more
Abstract:Studies of aircraft noise effects on wildlife have been hampered by an inability to measure animal noise exposure in the wild. USAF supported development of a retrievable, portable Animal Noise Monitor (ANM) in 1989 and an enhanced second generation version during 1994-1995. The weakest component… 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.
