Abstract:Fine-scale, well-calibrated probabilistic weather forecasts are increasingly in demand for such weather-critical applications as battlespace management, and accurate prediction of high-value airborne operations. Built upon the Phase I effort we have just completed, the principal objective of this… more
Abstract:"Honey bee pollination is estimated to contribute over $14 billion annually to
agricultural production. Honey bee pollination services in the larger ecosystem are
also of vital importance. However, apiculture in the United States is threatened,
especially by infestations of exotic parasitic mites.… more
Abstract:The U.S. Army Aviation Engineering Directorate, Propulsion Drive Systems Branch, has identified the need to replace the antiquated, differential mechanical pressure switch/indicator currently being used in hydraulic system filter applications on all Army helicopters, in favor of newer technology,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Inflammation after ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) injury secondary to hemorrhagic shock is responsible for significant mortality and morbidity in the United States. Available intravenous fluids administered at the incid
ent scene to treat hypovolemic shock do not… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Hemorrhage resulting from traumatic injuries is a major cause of death in accidents, and the primary cause of death on the battlefield. Early and effective hemorrhage control can save more lives than any other measure.

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.
