Abstract:78188S Ultra-Supercritical (USC) coal-fired power plants are being designed to meet the Vision 21 goals of fuel efficiency and environmental emission standards. The material systems for these plants will be required to limit degradation occuring from corrosion at elevated temperatures. Due to… more
Abstract:The US Navy is seeking improved fire protection systems with the primary goal to reduce the areal density based on the current 1 lb/sq ft baseline value. Recent tests with intumescent coatings were largely unsuccessful. Passive fire protection systems are preferable due to their relatively inert… more
Abstract:Barrier coatings to prevent moisture ingress into radome structures of advanced missile systems are a critical need for the Navy. Ingress of moisture during missile storage can degrade the critical sensor and guidance electronic components housed within the missile radome. The US Navy is… more
Abstract:Applied Visions, Inc.(AVI) proposes to leverage the technology of computer games to provide a powerful new method of predicting and visualizing the potential movement of time critical moving targets for operators of the FCS and FFW networked effects nodes. Our research will build upon the results… more
Abstract:Applied Visions, Inc. (AVI) is pleased to present this proposal for a Phase II follow-on effort to our Phase I work on Topic N04-231 "Display and Visualization of Movement Predictions for Ground Vehicles". The core of the problem to be solved is that of minimizing the area of uncertainty (AOU) for… more
Abstract:Net-centric warfare places burdens on mission planners and commanders to understand dependencies, readiness, mobility, interoperability, and risk of cyber assets in addition to kinetic assets. They need to know "which computing assets are required for the success of the mission," "are there threats… more
Abstract:The use of monolithic airfoil structures in static and rotating components such as one-piece integrally bladed rotors (IBR's) in military turbine engines has created an increased risk of high cycle fatigue (HCF). The Phase I SBIR studies recently demonstrated plasma sprayed hard coating concepts… more
Abstract:Innovative damping methods for small turbine engines are needed by the Army and other military and commercial interests. The plasma sprayed coating process provides a method for successfully achieving the required damping for the newer high efficiency turbine engines that experience high "g " loads… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Approximately 10 million people in the U.S. are estimated to have osteoporosis, a disease that results in over 1.5 million bone fractures a year. It is now known that the accumulation of fat cells (adipocytes) in bone marrow is a major factor contributing to… more
Abstract:Commercial-scale marine aquaculture has the potential to balance the increasing demand for high-quality seafood products with the harvest capacity of our nation¿s oceans. However, water reuse in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) is limited by the accumulation of nitrate (NO3), which is toxic… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Microarrays are a powerful way to measure the impact of contaminants present in the environment. In this proposal, we will sequence genes from grass shrimp and sheepshead minnows, make trial microarrays from these genes, and show the expression patterns that… more
Abstract:Aquilent, Inc. proposes to support ad-hoc, content-based query and data retrieval from virtual observatories (VxO) by developing 1) Higher Order Query Services that will work together with the Virtual Space Physics Observatory (VSPO) effort. These services will enable scientists to generate derived… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Each year more Americans die from smoking-related diseases than from alcohol, AIDS, drug abuse, car accidents, fire, suicide and murder-combined. Smoking costs the United States approximately $97.2 billion each year in healthcare costs and lost productivity.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project will develop a new software program that will improve the management of digital information from a variety of sources for individuals with learning disabilities (LD) and/or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in a postsecondary academic… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (PROVIDED BY APPLICANT): Arbor Vita proposes to determine the selectivity profiles of NMDA Receptors for PDZ domains and to identify selective inhibitors for use in reducing neuronal damage following a stroke. Stroke is a severe disorder that affects about 600,000 people a year in the… more
Abstract:Reclamation or restoration of sustainable native grasslands is constrained by the lack of seed of many difficult to harvest species. The lack of seed of many species stems from the lack of harvest equipment that can effectively dislodge, separate, convey, and off-load seed with challenging… more
Abstract:Arc Second, Inc, of Dulles, Virginia, has developed a high accuracy 3-D measurement system that is ideally suited to the location of non-destructive inspection tools. The system uses small infra-red laser transmitters that create rotating fan beams, and lightweight measurement sensors that can… more
Abstract:This proposal details the development of a multipoint exploding foil initiator trigger system that enables programmable delays between EFI detonations. The temporal jitters are less than 50 ns from the initial trigger signal to the firing of each EFI. This enables precise control of the detonation… 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.
