Abstract:Pulsed Power delivery has been an ongoing development area for DOE for a number of years, since the klystron modulators represent a substantial segment of the budget for any new accelerator, synchrotron, or light source. DTI has been at the forefront of this development, and has fielded hundreds of… more
Abstract:Commercially available capacitor-charging supplies have power densities in the range of 200-300 kJ/s/m3, and are typically rated for a 30 kW average charging rate or less. Over 200 of these units would be needed to charge a 50 MJ bank in eight seconds, and would occupy a total volume of over 20… more
Abstract:Carrier landings are among the most difficult aviation procedures for a military pilot. Accomplishing these landings at night or in bad weather requires the most reliable navigation systems available. The AN/SPN-41 transmitting set, which assists pilots in their final approach to a carrier landing,… more
Abstract:The purpose of the system under design is to increase airframe visibility and increase crew safety by allowing pilots to activate any of three rotor-lighting modes: the"navigation"mode produces two arcs of red and green light on the port and starboard sides of the rotor, respectively;… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this project is to develop an open and flexible imaging platform capable of rapid, 0.5- 5 m pixel resolution image capture of large-area histology sections (up to 125 mm by 175 mm), in brightfield and by epi-fluorescence optical sectioning. The… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In this grant proposal An Automated Antisense Design and Simulation Platform , a comprehensive molecular diagnostics software tool that is specific to the design and simulation of antisense oligonucleotide analog probes will be developed. The application of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In spite of billions of dollars spent in the War on Cancer, cancer-specific mortality has changed little as a result, and the vast majority of cures are produced surgically, not from chemotherapy. The main problem is that even with early detection; most cancers… more
Abstract:Thin, flexible, and highly efficient solar arrays are needed that package compactly for launch and deploy into large, structurally stable high power generators. Inverted Metamorphic Multi-junction (IMM) solar cells can enable these arrays, offering higher efficiencies of>33% and lower mass and… more
Abstract:This project proposes to develop an occulter optical edge and optical edge measurement verification system suitable for astrophysics missions including JWST and the Occulting Ozone Observatory (O3). The optical edge has tight cross-section requirements in order to produce the correct diffraction as… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Conventional deployable arrays of rigid solar panels use cables or added external structures to provide synchronized deployment, adding mass, volume and limiting applicability, and are custom engineered for each application with unique assembly and integration processing and fixtures.… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Thin film solar arrays using advanced Inverted Metamorphic solar cells can offer a significant increase in efficiency and specific power over conventional planar solar arrays for future spacecraft. The flexible low-mass solar cells require an equally flexible robust replacement to the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: We propose to research a real-time tool for Planning of Intelligent Course of Action with Learning (PICAL). PICAL will reason over the available resources, available maneuvers, current threats and potential future threats and will generate a course of actions to maximize the chances of… more
Abstract:Acoustic directional information has always been based upon measuring the difference between sound pressure signals at different locations, just like human hearing (two ears spaced apart). A new sensor technology for battlefield acoustics has emerged that measures acoustic particle velocity instead… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Inhibitors of HIV-induced downregulation of HLA class I Multiple studies suggest that downmodulation of HLA class I (MHC-I) plays an important role in HIV infection. The viral protein Nef induces MHC-I downmodulation and interferes with the presentation of viral… more
Abstract:Seismic detection systems are one of the primary means used to monitor subsurface nuclear explosions. Consequently, the study of previous seismic events provides a critical underpinning for ongoing nonproliferation efforts. In this proposal, Retriever Technology will continue its efforts to develop… more

This population; elderly or recovering patients living at home or in an extended care facility is too frail toleave this environment and, as such, is… more
Abstract:Multiphase bubbly mixture flows are of importance in turbomachinery, pipelines, cooling systems, reaction towers, as well as in various applications in petroleum, chemical, geothermal, and nuclear industries. The presence of the gaseous component has a strong influence on performance and efficiency.… more
Abstract:Intense pulsed pressure waves induced by proton beam impact on mercury in a spallation target propagate in the mercury and reflect from vessel walls as expansion waves resulting in cavitation damage to the walls. Injection of gas bubbles (few micrometer diameter range and void fraction of the order… 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.
