Abstract:Incompatibility is a major problem in wireless communications, due to the proliferation of wireless networks based on different technologies that cannot interoperate with one another. The incompatibility of consumer, military, and local jurisdictional communication devices was never more evident to… more
Abstract:Coherent Logix, Incorporated (CLX) proposes to develop a military High-performance Extremely Low Power GPS Receiver (HELPR) system suitable for use with soldier handheld PDAs, micro-UAVs, and unattended ground sensors. HELPR will support form factors similar to existing PDA cards for civilian GPS… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will evaluate the feasibility of using titanium or vanadium based compounds as chemical conversion coatings for magnesium alloys. Magnesium alloys suffer from high corrosion rates and must be coated with either an anodized or chemical… more

The project aims to reduce the time and cost to anodize magnesium using a unique electro-cleaning method that reduces the number of pretreatment steps prior to… more
Abstract:Ceramic Composites Inc. (CCI) of Millersville, MD in association with Swales Aerospace of Beltsville, MD have evaluated an innovative approach for the design of a Venus probe to maximize the payload volume and mass, while increasing probe lifetime. CCI and Swales have evaluated state-of-the-art… more
Abstract:One of the great hurdles to further development and evaluation of nuclear thermal propulsion systems is the issue surrounding the release of radioactive material from the fuel during ground testing and its subsequent impact on test facility siting and operation. Therefore, the development of a… more
Abstract:IBRs represent a great advance for military aero-engine performance. However increased performance has its price: high manufacturing costs and difficulty with in-service repair. Linear friction welding (LFW) and/or high speed machining have reduced manufacturing costs, but service repairs are… 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.
