Abstract:Volcanic ash is a significant hazard to aircraft engine and electronics and has caused damage to unwary aircraft and disrupted air travel for thousands of travelers, costing millions of dollars. Michigan Aerospace Corporation (MAC) proposes to demonstrate the concept feasibility of a Raman Light… more
Abstract:The successful landing of the large Mars rover Curiosity on August 5, 2012 outlined the increasing complexity of safely landing large rovers on the planet. A precise knowledge of the spacecraft speed is required in order to initiate the landing sequence near 900 mph; the present method uses IMUs to… more
Abstract:Design is the act of generating information that is used to make decisions or produce a product. Modern products are moving away from segregated disjointed systems and towards interdependent systems that utilize shared hardware and software resources (e.g. zonal power distribution, ethernet based… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Next generation military unmanned aircraft have a need for lower thrust specific fuel consumption (TSFC) and higher power-to-weight ratio, exceeding the capability of current engines in this thrust class. Attainment of these goals can be aided through an increase in turbine inlet… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION: Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a common cause of serious infections in patients with immune deficiency (e.g., HIV and cancer), cystic fibrosis (CF), on mechanical ventilation or with burn wounds. While P. aeruginosa exhibits an alarming variety ofintrinsic drug resistances, aminoglycosides… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION: Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a common and extremely virulent cause of serious infections in immune- compromised/suppressed patients (e.g., HIV and cancer), cystic fibrosis patients, and those on mechanical ventilation or with burn wounds. Related clinically important Gram-negative [Gr(-)]… 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.
