Abstract:Energy security and global warming are looming issues for the future of our nationÂ¿s vitality, productivity, and environmental health. The notion of a hydrogen-fueled future is positive on many levels, including air quality and efficiency, but its realization depends critically on the… more
Abstract:Currently, chlor-alkali and other electrolytic processes consume more than 6% of the total US electrical generating capacity. With chlorine production of approximately 14 million metric tons in 2004, chlor-alkali is the third most energy intensive process among all U.S. chemical industries. As… more
Abstract:U.S. automakers have invested significant resources in the research and development of hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles. However, to enable their widespread use, an additional major investment will be required to construct an infrastructure for hydrogen production and delivery to fueling stations. As… more
Abstract:It is estimated that 14 billion barrels of produced water was generated by onshore exploration and production (E&P) in 2002 alone. The produced water comprises approximately 98% of the total waste generated by oil and gas E&P. Additionally, many coal-bed methane processes, as well as other… more
Abstract:The Goleta Star LLC team proposes to develop advanced capability for feature-aided tracking, detection and ID of Moving Targets, vehicles and dismounts, using SAR. In Phase I we developed coherent moving target detection algorithms using an along track monopulse SAR system, and demonstrated the… more
Abstract:Goleta Star LLC with support from Quinstar and Academia will develop a low-cost lite-weight W-band ESA. The approach is based upon a novel architecture, and will provide E-scan in two dimensions. It is scalable to other frequencies and larger apertures. It is particularly attractive at W-band… more
Abstract:There is a pressing need for both ground based and small UAV applications for low-cost and high-efficiency MMW 2-D AESA capability, interlaced with a dual lower frequency aperture. This combination will enable both communications and radar from the same aperture. Goleta Star LLC with support from… more
Abstract:The Goleta Star LLC team proposes to develop improved change detection algorithms that are well suited to applications that use persistent RF sensors for detecting, tracking, locating, and identifying targets in urban areas. We plan to develop advanced change detection algorithms that specifically… more
Abstract:The energy and cost to convert lingo-cellulosic material (grass, wood, vegetable residuals, etc.) to liquid fuel is a barrier to commercialization. One of the larger costs involves the enzymatic conversion of plant materials into fermentable sugars, due to the amount and number of enzymes required… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Holography is an attractive imaging technique as it offers the ability to view a complete 3D volume from one image and even achieve resolution beyond the Raleigh limit. However, holography is not widely applied to 3D fl
uorescence microscopic imaging, because… more
Abstract:By drastically reducing the physical footprint of a mass spectrometer to the size of a beverage can, Ceramitron could set a new performance/price standard in the miniaturized MS market. To do this, we propose eliminating the turbomolecular and roughing pumps in favor two chemical sorption pumps (a… 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.
