The annual cost of treating Americanssuffering from some form of kidney failure… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Susceptibility to common human diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular disease is determined by numerous genetic factors that interact in a nonlinear manner in the context of an individual's age and environmental exposure. This complex genetic… more
Abstract:The original Sublimator Driven Coldplate (SDC) design sought to provide significant mass savings over a traditional pumped fluid loop by combining the functions of a cold plate and a sublimator and eliminating the fluid loop (Leimkuehler, et. al., "Design of a Sublimator Driven Coldplate… more
Abstract:Extended duration missions to the Moon and Mars will require the use of In-situ resources to generate propellants and life support consumables. Many of the processes for in-situ resource utilization (ISRU) produce water, along with a variety of acid gases and other water soluble contaminants. … more
Abstract:An inflatable habitat is a pressure vessel with flexible shell. Notable features such as low weight, large inflated operational volume, and small pre-deployment volume offer significant advantages over traditional rigid metallic and composite habitat structures. Conventional designs suffer from… more
Abstract:Paragon Space Development Corporation proposes the use of an microporous-ionomer membrane pair to improve the robustness and effectiveness of membrane-based water separation processes. Improved robustness and effectiveness will be evident through (1) reduced loading on the downstream post processor… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The ORS program is designed to field a customizable satellite that can be assembled in a few days. Unfortunately, the TCS is typically custom built around the heat loads and operating environments. For an ORS mission, both the heat load and the operating environments will be unknown… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will develop the first in a series of theoretically grounded, evidence-based multi-player games designed to address the leading health risk to teens - motor vehicle crashes. This STTR will provide a new model for translating discoveries… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): High Throughput Microrepository for Genetic Materials Recognizing the urgent need for a safe, rapid and reliable means of preserving and archiving genetic samples and other biological materials, such as synthetic DNA samples, unique isolated samples, plasmids,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Most cell culture lines are anchorage-dependent and require surface attachment for proliferation. For industrial production, increased surface area can be provided by microcarrier beads, but the associated increases incost and the resulting complexity of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The use of research animals in research has been essential to development of vaccines and study of most human diseases. Modern rodent research is increasingly powerful with the ability to manipulate the genomes of miceand rats such that they closely mimic complex… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: PSI will apply a novel form of unsupervised learning to the problem of detecting and identifying coordinated threats. Particular emphasis is placed on detecting motion based leading indicators of impending"swarming"attacks of small, low cost adversaries. The developed system… more
Abstract:The development of full motion video sensors on board unmanned platforms is quickly enabling persistent surveillance of areas of military interest in dense urban environments. Although the high resolution and update rate of persistent sensors facilitates tracking ground targets, serious tracking… more
Abstract:Recently, there have been significant theoretical advances in the fields of geo-statistics and spatio-temporal statistics.

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.
