Abstract:High noise environments increase the difficulty of face-to-face communication, with or without the use of hearing protection. Further, understanding the sound signals that are available in the environment for maintaining situational awareness becomes more difficult as background noise level… more
Abstract:Advancements in subminiature earphone drivers are sought to provide desired improvements in active noise reduction (ANR) earplug attenuation magnitudes and bandwidth. Prior investigations have illustrated a need for improvements in frequency response, sound power output, geometrical configurations,… more
Abstract:Recent spectrum study shows that while the available spectrum becomes increasing scarce, the assigned spectrum is significantly underutilized. In this project, we propose an integrated effort to develop a new radio technology capable of dynamically sensing and locating the unused spectrum and… more
Abstract:In many cases the analyst's problem is one of finding a needle in a haystack. The ever increasing flood of communication technology and traffic has resulted in a large and growing haystack and presents a daunting problem. The key to maximizing analyst productivity is the development of intelligent… more

Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Founded in 1999, Adenosine Therapeutics LLC (ATL) is a drug discovery and development company that has developed a family of potent and selective adenosine A2A receptor agonists. With the help of STTR funding, ATL has developed a lead adenosine A2A receptor… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (PROVIDED BY APPLICANT): Selective antagonists of A2A adenosine receptors have proven to be effective for the treatment of Parkinson's disease (PD) both in animal models and in a human trial. However, the initial clinical trial was stopped in phase 3 due to detection of animal toxicity… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Flow cytometers are valuable tools for the rapid analysis of cells and macromolecules for both research and diagnostic purposes. Ideally, flow cytometry based analysis could benefit more researchers and clinicians if the units were more affordable, smaller, and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Broadband impedance analysis of individual cells yields a wealth of information about cell size, viability, morphology and interior structure. Cell dielectric properties including membrane conductivity, cytoplasmic conductivity, and membrane capacitance can be… more
Abstract:High-temperature polymer matrix composites (PMCs) are desired for the aggressive environments encountered in many aerospace and military applications. These have required new blends of materials properties in the composite fiber and matrix. As polyimide resins have been improved, the… 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.
