Most social science research is currently limited by… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project implements and tests the efficacy of a software approach for utilizing client-specific data in order to customize fully-automatic translations produced by state-of-the-art Machine Translation (MT) systems. Based on this approach, the… more
Abstract:The full potential of Demand Response (DR) peak load shifting in the Smart Grid (SG) Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) will not be achieved without the ability to control points of consumption in the residential electrical consumer base. The electrical appliances in the home represent 40% of… more
Abstract:Achieving efficiency improvements and providing demand-response programs have been identified as key elements of our national energy initiative. The residential market is the largest, yet most difficult, segment to engage in efforts to meet these objectives. This project will develop an Energy… more
Abstract:The U.S. pulp and paper industry is at a turning point. The industry not only needs to address the demands of the changing global economy along with increasing competitiveness, but they must also prepare for policy changes and technological improvements in the field of energy. The pulp and paper… more
Abstract:The U.S. pulp and paper manufacturing industry uses a considerable amount of fossil fuels which produce greenhouse gases (GHG). If fully implemented by industry, this project can reduce fossil fuel use by the equivalent of 18.5 million barrels of oil per year, and reduce GHG emissions by 10.5… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will investigate a new class of chip-scale instrumentation for microwave and mm-wave device characterization. The primary elements of the proposed instruments are silicon integrated circuits for signal generation and detection, 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.
