Abstract:The Ballistic Missile Defense System"s ability to detect and track enemy missiles against space, ocean, or terrain backgrounds, including any intervening clouds as well as atmospheric turbulence, requires prior knowledge of the environmental radiance conditions to support the development of… more
Abstract:Optimistic modeling techniques are being exploited in modeling and simulation architectures that model the complete Ballistic Missile Defense System. Optimistic modeling allows event based simulations to take full advantage of parallel processing by distributing models across all available… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Healthcare-acquired infections are increasing in rate and severity; they present a significant challenge to the medical community as a top-ten leading cause of death in the U.S. Nearly half of these infections are associated with the use of a medical device.… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This project will investigate the feasibility of an integrated multilevel system for protecting space assets from system hardware and firmware exploitation. The overall strategy is to provide greater collective system protection as a whole than would otherwise be available from the sum of… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Cavitation which leads to head falloff and feed system instabilities are a constant source of problems for the low net positive suction head (NPSH) pumps that are needed for advanced liquid rocket engines. Head falloff limits the pumps capability to deliver propellant at the required… more
Abstract:Ground and surface water contamination from anthropogenic sources is an important problem that must be monitored and remediated to protect the environment and human health. Chromium and cobalt contamination of groundwater is a problem in industrialized areas, where waste from plating and other… more
Abstract:Solid-state fuel cells operating at intermediate temperatures of 200300 degrees C are attractive energy conversion devices because they combine many advantages of high- and low-temperature fuel cells, i.e., high durability to CO poisoning, simplified water management, increased energy conversion… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cigarette smoking and secondhand exposure to tobacco smoke cause an estimated average of 438,000 premature deaths each year in the United States. Nicotine, coadministered in tobacco products, is an addicting substance that causes individuals to continue use of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries (LIB) are providing power for an increasing range of portable medical devices. With their light weight and higher voltages, device capabilities have improved within acceptable weight limits for portability. However, the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Giner, Inc. proposes a portable, inexpensive, and rapid-response monitor for arsenic speciation in urine. Arsenic species excreted in urine are reflective of human exposure to toxic arsenic, and therefore this sensor will be a valuable biomonitoring tool in… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Approximately 623,000 people currently live in the United States with a lower limb amputation, with 30,000 new transfemoral amputations conducted each year. The latest commercial product is a prosthetic knee powered byan electric motor designed to function as an… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Electronically Activated Polymer (EAP) structures hold great potential for use in several medical applications, including implantable pumps and actuators, artificial muscles, microtools for intravascular intervention and soft prosthetics. The structures can be… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this proposal is to develop methods to obtain high-resolution crystal structures of Family C G- protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). These structures would greatly facilitate the development of effective and highly selective allosteric drug molecules… more
Abstract:Dried blood spot (DBS) analysis has gained recognition in recent years in basic science and clinical diagnostics. This impetus relies upon its numerous advantages over the collection, transport and storage of blood samples obtained by conventional venipuncture. Although there is wide-spread interest… more
Abstract:In P2, we will continue development of our integrated smartride Automatic Ride Control (ARC) system. In P1 we began ocean testing so P2 will concentrate on raising the TRL to approach a production ready system. With sophisticated onboard instrumentation, we will demonstrate at least a 30% reduction… more
Abstract:Both NASA and the FAA have identified large civil tiltrotors (LCTRs) as the most promising method for meeting FAA goals for extending future airport capacity, flexibility, efficiency and safety. This has led to important research at NASA exploring flight dynamics and handling qualities associated… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Noise alleviation for tactical jet aircraft is critical for community acceptance of military operations. While new fixed-geometry engine nozzles can mitigate noise, adaptive concepts can adjust to multiple flight conditions and reduce noise without compromising other performance metrics.… 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.
