Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Despite advances in the treatment of patients with sepsis, sepsis remains the second most common cause of death in non-coronary intensive care units and the tenth leading cause of death overall in high-income countries.
It has been estimated that gt750,000 cases… more
Abstract:dvanced Coherent Technologies, LLC (ACT) proposes to leverage recent ONR projects investigating surf zone dynamics and current programs developing low cost EO/IR imaging systems to show the utility of using an airborne EO/MSI/IR sensor to characterize the near shore and surf zone environments. ACT… more
Abstract:When the inner diameter (ID) of a landing gear aluminum outer cylinder is damaged or worn there is very little that can be done to repair ID of the cylinder. Consequently, the outer cylinder has to be condemned and taken out of service. The main cause for condemnations of aluminum outer cylinders is… more
Abstract:Chrome plating has been utilized as a protective wear coating for High Strength Steel (HSS) and Low Strength Steel (LSS) aircraft components for over half a century. High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) tungsten carbide chrome (WC-Co or WC-Co-Cr) coatings are currently being utilized as a chrome… more
Abstract:Researchers have determined that lunar soil contains approximately 43% oxygen in the lunar soil oxides, which could be extracted to provide breathable oxygen for consumption by astronauts. The proposed program will develop a solar receiver for the hydrogen reduction process that uses sodium heat… more
Abstract:The DOE is investigating new technologies for high performance, low cost heat exchangers. One way to achieve this goal is to develop improved heat transfer fluids using nanotechnology.

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.
