Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Etched Air Taper Combiner as fist proposed by the US Air Force Academy has the advantages in that the input fiber bundle, the combining section, and the output to the gain fiber can be individually improved and optimized and then the components are spliced together to create the… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project seeks to develop novel hydrogel drug-delivery systems. We have developed linkers for drug conjugation to circulating macromolecules that release the native drug by beta-eliminative cleavage at predictable rates with half-lives spanning hours to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT Technological aids supporting medication management for chronically ill patients are proliferating, offered in electronic telehealth devices. Pill organizers, reminders, monitors, and usage communicators have enabled an array of home health aids to support users and caregivers in pill… more
Abstract:Opiate-agonist pharmacotherapy utilizing buprenorphine/naloxone is known to decrease illicit opiate use. However, poor medication management and misuse during self-managed opioid substitution therapy (OST) constrains efficacy, while aggrandizing relapse,hospitalizations and mortality. One of the… more
Abstract:MDA plans to use sensors such as PTSS, SM-3, UEWR, and AN/TPY-2 to track and intercept ballistic missiles. In order to be successful, the C2BMC element must: 1) achieve and maintain stereo tracks, 2) perform target characterization, 3) prioritize and assign targets to interceptors, and 4) handover… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Over the last twenty years the United States has become dependent on space technology for communications, precision tracking and many other applications. Globalization of the world"s economy, which has also dramatically increased over the past twenty years, has resulted in this same… more
Abstract:One of the primary research objectives for multi-sensor data fusion within the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) is the development of novel techniques to enable robust target discrimination. While great strides have been made in recent years to advance capabilities through the use of… more
Abstract:Missile Defense Agency (MDA) recently adopted the Phased Adaptive Approach (PAA) to enhance the Ballistic Missile Defense System"s (BMDS) ability to counter emerging threats in the Middle East and Southeast Asia. PAA primarily focuses on fielding new sensor technology (e.g. AN/TPY-2 and PTSS)… more
Abstract:GoGames will be a tablet-based multiplayer role-play game for middle school social studies classrooms and will focus on topics in civics. GoGames is intended to enable more efficient and effective implementation of traditional civics interventions by replacing static paper content and training… more
Abstract:This proposal addresses the challenge of providing weather and climate information to support the operation, management and planning for wind-energy systems. There is a growing need for extended range forecast information as wind power increases its penetration into the grid. Future scenarios on… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Future spacecraft could benefit from onboard planning and scheduling autonomy to effectively fulfill their missions. By eliminating the need to wait for the ground, planning decisions can be made faster based on event and status information available onboard. This is especially… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project proposes to develop a highly permeable inorganic membrane for olefin/paraffin separation. Zeolite membranes have a number of advantages over polymer membranes and other inorganic membranes, including greater chemical and mechanical stability,… more
Abstract:This proposal is for an intelligent, in-line, power disconnect system (I2P) which is directly applicable to existing power line infrastructure. It requires
no interruption in utility service for installation. The proposed connection would be coupled with strain sensing gauges and an array of sensors… more
Abstract:Our approach utilizes a mature, portable inflatable beam shelter to house modified commercial car wash equipment operated by an automated control
system. The inflatable beam shelters are currently deployed with the US Military and are commonly used as decontamination shelters for military
Abstract:Soldiers are very dependent on electrical power for laptops, radios, handheld devices, smart phones, ISR platforms and weapon systems. Existing generators are heavier and lack compatibility with readily available fuels. They must operate reliably across a wide range of environmental conditions. A… more
Abstract:Unprecedented reserves of natural gas have recently been unlocked from previously uneconomical shale formations in the United States, leading to a rapid decline in the price of this fossil fuel energy source. In the U.S., natural gas vehicle utilization has been limited by several factors, including… more
Abstract:The neurocognitive health of U.S. service members plays a vital role in the defense of the United States. It is critical to a service member"s effectiveness, to force readiness, and it is a key component of a service member"s successful reintegration into family life and society following… 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.
