Abstract:Large deployable telescopes such as NASA's 9.2m and 16.8m segmented ATLAST systems require commensurately large deployable sunshades for thermal control and to prevent stray light from contaminating the desired science images. Existing deployable structures technologies are too heavy and… more
Abstract:One of the goals of NASA's Fundamental Aeronautics "Subsonic Fixed Wing" project is to reduce fuel burn by 25% 5% by 2018. This corresponds approximately to an increase in Lift/Drag ratio of the same magnitude. While the improvement in design tools funded by NASA will undoubtedly help attain this… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Chronic total occlusions (CTOs), defined as vessels that have been completely occluded for 3 months, are a prevalent vascular disease found in about one-third of patients undergoing a coronary angiogram and in 30-50% of
peripheral procedures. Revascularization… more
Abstract:The devastating traumatic injuries sustained by warfighters in OIF/OEF frequently involve the loss of large portions of bone, muscle and skin. Current management of tissue coverage and augmentation involves the use of existing host tissue to construct, for example, muscular flaps or grafts. In many… more
Abstract:In Phase I we propose to demonstrate a room temperature continuous wave QC laser at 4.5m with high power (P>0.5W) and wall plug efficiency (η>5%). The data will be used to design a high performance QC laser with projected wall plug efficiency exceeding 15% in continuous mode operation at room… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): With the increasing requirements for assuming prominent disease management and preventive screening activities, primary care physicians find themselves lacking cost-effective resources to improve the quality of medical
care they provide to patients with chronic… more

Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term goal of this project is to create an efficient, unique, and versatile laser instrument that will have applications in a large range of surgical procedures including dermatology, laryngology, otology, and o
phthalmology. In the near-term, these… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Innovative products that reduce the costs and increase the quality and productivity of drug discovery research are more important than ever. We will rigorously validate prototypes of compound management products that wi
ll help overcome limitations in the field… more
Abstract:We propose to engage with all stakeholders (administrative, policy and decision makers, data providers, users of the system, technology developers) and survey the resources, opportunities, barriers and challenges and risks involved through a systematic process of "Solution Envisioning" in order to… more
Abstract:We propose a Semantic Web based Ontology Engine to map disparate medical terminologies to help patient management, and pharmacovigilance efforts with emphasis on TBI and PTSD patients. Currently, there are multiple terminologies being used both within and outside the MHS. The proposed system and… 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.
