Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is an acute need for the development of a new class of microarray biosensors that are sufficiently versatile, selective, sensitive and reliable to allow investigation of the time-dependent neurochemical events ofethanol administration in multiple regions of… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: ADI and ASU propose to develop a novel methodology for blade peak stress prediction from limited strain gage/tip-timing measurements when multiple vibratory modes are present. The current protocol assumes that only one mode is present and only provides upper and lower bound estimates of… more
Abstract:At present there exists a very significant science and technology gap for the production of photocathodes that have both high quantum efficiency (QE) and long lifetime. The National Academies has identified this as an area of critical importance to the development of high-power free-electron lasers… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Leadership Agreement signatures on this Commercialization Readiness Program (CRP) project Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Technology Transition Plan (STTP 2011-51) formalize an agreement to develop the technology maturation and transition strategies, and pending funding and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Landing Gear (LG) is one of the few critical elements which are not redundant and failure usually results in catastrophe. Current inspections center on macro aspects of fatigue in that they are only applicable during the crack propagation phase and fail to identify and sense stages of… more
Abstract:Many attempts have been made to replace electro-deposited chromium applied to internal surfaces of gun barrels. Patented EPVD process has been bench-marked by DOD programs as a fit substitute. The objective of the proposed work is to continue the investigation, development and testing of erosion… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The field of telehealth is advancing rapidly and hearing instruments which can be adjusted remotely have recently been developed. Techniques for fitting and evaluating hearing aids in the home will be developed using acomputer-based system linked to the internet.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Newborn screening is currently performed by collecting dried bloodspots from infants and then sending them to a lab for analysis. It is primarily performed to detect disorders which lead to severe physical and mental disabilities. There is an increasing necessity… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Jaundice is the most common condition that requires urgent medical attention in some newborns and is the result of elevation in circulating unconjugated bilirubin. The unbound unconjugated bilirubin can be specificallyneurotoxic and, if untreated, is associated… more
Abstract:This effort will develop a comprehensive, validated toolkit to aid product designers and Government procurement personnel in evaluating alternative designs for head-borne equipment.

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.
