Abstract:The development of a process to produce low defect density silicon carbide (SiC) boules at high growth rates will significantly reduce the cost of wafers and thus accelerate the rapid commercialization of SiC for high power and high temperature device applications. The objectives of this Phase II… more
Abstract:With the continued growth in the integration density of CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) technology and clock frequency of microprocessors, the aggregate bandwidth required between future-generation microprocessors and chipsets will increase sharply. Driving serial or parallel data at… more
Abstract:Stroke is the second leading cause of death worldwide and the primary cause of serious, long-term disability and nursing home admissions. The absence of clinically useful diagnostics has severely impeded effective management and treatment of acute ischemic stroke. Currently available diagnostics are… more
Abstract:Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of combat casualty. Previous estimates for 20th century conflicts were that 15 - 25% of all injuries were sustained to the head. However, with the increased incidence of blast injuries that military personnel are suffering in the current conflicts in… more
Abstract:Leveraging existing Simulation Based Design and Multidisciplinary Optimization (SBD / MDO) analyses, optimal hybrid torpedo configuration(s) will be developed. Engineering analyses will be performed on a new chemical oxygen storage and delivery concept and turbomachinery for the hybrid propulsion… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In order to assure the physiological status of small experimental animals, pulmonary and circulatory functions must be monitored accurately and frequently. Arterial blood-gas measurements are critical for this monitoring, however, repeated measurements can affect… more
Abstract:As the complexity of flight controllers grows, so does the cost associated with verification and validation (V&V). Current-generation controllers are already reaching a level of complexity that pushes the envelopes of existing V&V approaches, with little hope for affordable V&V of next-generation… more
Abstract:Next-generation aerospace systems will require increased autonomy to modify system behavior based on changing mission requirements, environmental factors, and system performance. For example, intelligent systems have been employed to improve safety by adaptively compensating for unexpected failures… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): An easy to use, low-cost system is needed for measuring and assessing gait kinematic parameters for purposes of screening for fall risk in clinical settings (e.g., physician's offices) and senior-care facilities, as well as for use by researchers. Such a system… more
Abstract:The U.S. Navy is currently developing Unmanned Sea Surface Vehicles (USSVs) that could potentially perform vital functions, such as fleet security and mine reconnaissance. A primary obstacle that must be overcome in order for USSVs to provide valuable service to the fleet is the lack of maintenance… more
Abstract:The control of modern underwater vehicles presents a number of challenges, including significant nonlinearities in the vehicle dynamics and a potentially large suite of control effectors with widely differing properties. Current generation control architectures for submarines are often… more
Abstract:A high-speed supercavitating torpedo is an advanced weapons concept under consideration by the US Navy. Supercavitation is a state in which a gas cavity substantially encompasses a body immersed in a liquid, and the consequence for underwater bodies is a marked drag reduction over the non-wetted… more
Abstract:The Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) is the Department of Defense's next generation strike aircraft, featuring advanced airframe, logistics, avionics, propulsion, stealth, and firepower systems. With a focus on cost reduction, the JSF Program is being developed with integrated Prognostics and Health… more
Abstract:Wind shear, icing, wake vortices from ship superstructures or other aircraft, actuator malfunctions, or component failures can all contribute to upset conditions. For piloted aircraft, prevention of or recovery from these events is challenging because of the nonlinear dynamics encountered at angles… more
Abstract:Next generation U.S. Navy shipboard control systems are being designed to provide much higher levels of machinery automation than their predecessors. The U.S. Navy is investing in these sophisticated systems with expectations of improved system performance and reliability. Moreover, reductions in… more
Abstract:Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) for the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) is envisioned as a comprehensive system for detecting and isolating failures, recommending condition-based maintenance (CBM), and estimating the remaining useful life (RUL) of critical components.

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.
