Abstract:goes hereBeacon's approach to Topic N07-108 is aimed at providing not only prognostication and prescription, but the ability to act upon that information. As we explore the needs of afloat IT Systems, our focus will not center on new algorithms or system models. Because of the intense marketplace… more
Abstract:The goal of Beacon's effort will be the creation of an Integrated Maintenance Management Decision-Support tool. The work accomplished here addresses not only the needs of DDG 1000 but also of other Navy programs and the broader marketplace. Our goal will be the development of the human-centric… more
Abstract:A high-brightness, elliptic, electron or positron beam is a novel device that has wide applications in high energy accelerators. Once developed, a large-aspectratio elliptic electron beam would enable the development of L-band ribbon-beam klystrons (RBKs) or sheet-beam klystrons (SBKs), which are… more
Abstract:High efficiency radio frequency (RF) power sources are needed in the frequency range 300-1500 MHz because they are essential for the operation of high-power particle accelerators for nuclear physics research. Applications include the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) at Thomas… more
Abstract:The proposed program is to develop two sheet-beam circuit topologies, one for narrowband and one for broadband, for used in future amplifiers. Several potential micro-fabrication approaches have been identified. Major objectives of the proposed program are to complete detailed circuit designs, to… more
Abstract:The proposed program is to develop a detailed sheet-beam amplifier prototype design, generate all engineering blue prints, fabricate and cold test cavity components to demonstrate circuit design methodology and fabrication concept, develop the electron gun, magnet, and beam transport diagnostics,… more
Abstract:The Air Force needs a Robotic Drilling System (RDS) for drilling and countersinking holes in JSF inlet ducts. We propose a team to develop all elements of a complete RDS: Robot/Robotic Application; Drill End-Effector (DEE); Metrology System; Cutting Tools; and an Automatic Tool Changer. This… more
Abstract:The Air Force needs an automated system for honing various shapes of taper in smooth-bore tubes. We propose to develop an automatic bore hone (ABH) to meet Air Force needs. Our ABH will automatically produce required diameter profiles to tight tolerances. Bore-gage transducers measure the bore… more
Abstract:NASA has many needs for maintenance and repair technologies for long-duration human space missions. We propose to develop a compact, portable, vacuum-compatible, multi-axis Manipulator/Machining Center (M/MC) to satisfy many of NASA's needs. Our M/MC will provide complex manipulation during:… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Databases of biological sequences have proven valuable for understanding the organization of human and other genomes, for unraveling the etiology of genetic disorders, and for studying medically important pathogens. Unf
ortunately, these databases are growing at… more
Abstract:This project is aimed at helping protect crop productivity by providing a means of rapidly assessing the health of bee colonies used for pollination. We propose research leading to the design of a hand-held device that could scan a honey bee colony, and quickly indicate the condition of that colony.… more
Abstract:"Honey bee pollination is estimated to contribute over $14 billion annually to
agricultural production. Honey bee pollination services in the larger ecosystem are
also of vital importance. However, apiculture in the United States is threatened,
especially by infestations of exotic parasitic mites.… 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.
