Abstract:Auriga Measurement Systems, LLC and BAE Systems have teamed for this program. The objective is to reduce the intermodulation distortion (IMD) in wide bandgap solid state amplifiers that results from multi-tone signals. For this program, up to 8 simultaneous tones will be studied. To demonstrate the… more
Abstract:Future military satellite communication systems will achieve higher signal capacities by employing complex modulation and channel schemes that are closely spaced in frequency. Nonlinearities in the terminal electronics, particularly power amplifiers, cause spectral regrowth in the adjacent channels… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long term goal of this research is to reduce toxicity and graft rejection due to dosing problems with the calcineurin inhibitors by developing a sustained release subcutaneous injectable formulation of a calcineurin
inhibitor. Substantial inter-and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The broad long term goal of this project is to empower women to protect themselves from HSV and HIV infection through the development of an HSV microbicide based on sustained release drug delivery. Each day 15,000 peopl
e are infected with HIV- a growing majority… more
Abstract:Aurora Flight Sciences, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), proposes an innovative method for representing and managing multidisciplinary design information from a wide range of analysis tools. The practical implication resulting from this novel approach is a… more
Abstract:Nuclear reactors to support future robotic and manned missions impose new and innovative technological requirements for their control and protection instrumentation. Long duration surface missions necessitate reliable autonomous operation, and manned missions impose added requirements for fail-safe… more
Abstract:Aurora Flight Sciences (AFS), in collaboration with the MIT Space Systems Laboratory (MIT-SSL), proposed the Synthetic Imaging Maneuver Optimization (SIMO) program to develop a methodology, calibrated through hardware-in-the-loop testing, to optimize S/C maneuvers to more efficiently synthesize… more
Abstract:Aurora and Georgia Tech are bringing together a team of experienced control theory, engine design, engine control experts to perform research on next-generation distributed control architectures for turbine engines. The program combines new results in adaptive and distributed control of… more
Abstract:Aurora Flight Sciences Corporation and our partner, Draper Laboratory, propose to develop an on orbit immuno-based, label-free, white blood cell counting system for simultaneous counting of peripheral blood cell subpopulations, including total white blood cells, the five white blood cell… more
Abstract:As manned missions to the moon and eventually Mars gain momentum, astronaut crews will be sent back to the deepest parts of space humans have ever traveled, and will continue deeper into space than ever before. Once outside the protection of the Earth's magnetic field, astronauts become fully… more
Abstract:The Air Force Next Generation Transport will apply advanced hybrid material forms to meet stringent weight and cost requirements and will consist of unitized structural concepts as a result. Glass-Reinforced Aluminum Laminate (GLARE) is a new class of fiber metal laminates for advanced aerospace… more
Abstract:Aurora Flight Sciences proposes to develop a flare planning logic that would provide aircraft guidance during this critical phase of flight. The algorithms that Aurora seeks to leverage address the reachability problem in the fields of Optimal Control and Hybrid Systems. Two competing technical… more
Abstract:Aurora Flight Sciences, in collaboration with Air Network Simulation and Analysis, Inc. (ANSA), proposes to develop a simulation-based methodology to analyze and guide the development of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) operations in the National Airspace System (NAS).The key technical accomplishment… 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.
