The… more
Abstract:The solid state semiconductor technology in radar systems supporting the U. S. Army's ballistic missile defense program increases its vulnerability to the effects of high power, fast rise-time EMP, HPM, and UWB pulses. Recent research has shown that using carbon nanotubes (CNTs) can greatly improve… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Ischemic ventricular tachycardia (VT) is a contributing cause to more than half of the 300,000 sudden cardiac deaths that occur annually in the United States. Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) are the stand
ard therapy but they are expensive the… more
Abstract:Safety, reliability, and life-cycle cost are of great concern to the aging aircraft manufacturing and maintenance industries. Acellent Technologies proposes to develop an accurate, reliable integrated system for detection, prediction and mitigation of aging and manufacturing related hazards in… more
Abstract:Swimmer delivery systems, externally mounted on submarines, are subject to hydrodynamic flow and irregular wave-slap loads. These result in unsteady, alternating impacts that can damage exposed surfaces. It is important to track the cumulative stresses imposed on the fairing panels to provide… more
Abstract:New engine fan blade containment structures are being manufactured with advanced composite structures such that they can withstand blade-out events. The use of advance composites requires the understanding of the possible effects of aging degradation on the performance of "hard wall" or "soft wall"… more
Abstract:Major concerns for implementing a practical built-in structural health monitoring system are prediction accuracy and data reliability. It is proposed to develop robust state-of-the-art structural health management (SHM) technologies to overcome these concerns. The proposed solution will be capable… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Our current capacity to generate chemical and structural biological data far exceeds our capability to meaningfully assimilate it. The data describes molecules and biological macromolecules and associated properties. A
principle common to the structure of all… more
Abstract:Biodiesel produced from microalgae has been identified as a potential source of affordable renewable fuel. This project addresses one aspect of the algal biodiesel production chain: development of low-cost, high-efficiency algal biomass harvest and dewatering technology. The approach involves the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ultimate goal of this STTR proposal is to develop a rapid, sensitive, and specific diagnostic test that can identify acetaminophen (APAP) protein adducts in human sera. APAP toxicity is the most common cause of acut

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.
