Abstract:Fiber optic communication networks utilizing wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) have been shown to be the most promising for realizing enormous bandwidth (terabit) for information transport and processing. A key device in the wideband WDM netowrk is a wavelength selective crossconnect for… more
Abstract:Autonomous unmanned systems require provisions for fault detection and handling. Multiply-redundant schemes typically used in aerospace applications are prohibitively expensive for general applications, especially where low cost or small size are critical. A new strategy, proposed herein, offers the… more
Abstract:Austral Engineering and Software, Inc. proposes to develop a computer platform for simulation-and-optimization-based design of multiple-stage manufacturing processes. Phase I will use metal forming processes to demonstrate feasibility of embedding analytical models of basic transport phenomena… more
Abstract:AutoCrawler LLC has been developing a new environmentally compliant coatings removal technology , called AuotCrawler to the airframe manufacturing and maintenance industries. AuotCrawler to the airframe manufacturing and maintenance industries. AutoCrawler LLC is working with firms developing new… more
Abstract:The long-term goal is to demonstrate that the Anti-Polymer Antibody Assay is diagnostic for chronic fatigue syndrome patients and fibromyalgia patients. In a pilot study 55 % (6/11) of chronic fatigue syndrome patient sera, 71 % (12/17) of fibromyalgia patient sera and 9 % (1/11) sera from healthy… more
Abstract:Many visually impaired people have difficulty learning mathematics. The lack of higher math skills limits educational and job opportunities for many visually impaired people since numerous professions are requiring more technical skills. The objective of the Screen Reader Architecture Math System… more
Abstract:In order to remain competitive in today's global marketplace, U.S. manufacturers are constantly striving to hold tighter and tighter tolerances on the parts that they produce. What this means is that the manufacturer needs to better control the machines that they use, and in order to do that they… more
Abstract:A Phase I project to design and demonstrate the concept of a "high-speed laser scanning technology for the measurement" and reporting of the small fire arm scoring. Accuracy of the measurement is +/- 1 mm over an area of 30'x30' with a projectile velocity of up to 1,550 meter/second. The results… more
Abstract:In response to the increasing demand for better understanding of the manufacturing processes and the machining systems, a new testing standard--ASME B5.54 and a family of new testing instruments have been developed for evaluating the performances of a variety of CNC machining centers. Because of the… more
Abstract:Controlling millimeter radio frequency waves with optical signals is a requirement for military communications and radar systems. The advances in the past decade have led to photonic sensors and switches that utilize light beams interacting with RF devices. New capabilities extending to higher… more
Abstract:In spite of the fact that powerful desktop computers are readily available, the mechanics of antenna design has changed very little as a result. Computers are being used, but only as high speed calculators to solve models that were developed 30 years ago. Two new developments in electromagnetics… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION: (Adapted from Investigator's Abstract) A passive formaldehyde monitoring device capable of emitting an audible warning signal is described. Monitoring exposure to formaldehyde is mandated by OSHA for certain industries. Currently, passive collection devices typically contain absorbent… more
Abstract:The research and development (R&D) costs and more importantly the projected production costs of airborne fighter aircraft, multi-mode radars are increasing significantly. Albeit, the performance and reliability are also increasing. Ways reducing these costs without reducing the other CRISP… more
Abstract:The use of advanced composite materials in all applications has increased dramatically, but the methods for managing and processing have remained unchanged for thirty years. Advanced, mulitple sensor technology has been demonstrated to reduce process time and costs. AvPro proposes to develop a… more
Abstract:Avyd Devices proposes a Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) growth based HgCdTe heterostructure photodiode approach to develop a technology capable of producing LWIR HgCdTe arrays with high performance, high tolerance to nuclear radiation, high uniformity, high operability, and high yield for use in low… 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.
