Abstract:During Phase I, we have conducted proof-of-principle experiments to fabricate exchange-coupled isotropic permanent magnets with SmFeN-Fe4N compositions employing shock wave consolidation technique. We have also successfully synthesized nearly 100% Fe16N2 in bulk form. Under this Phase II plan, we… more
Abstract:This proposal effort is concerned with the development of a novel multidisciplinary optimization scheme and computer software for the effective design of advanced aerospace vehicles. Such vehicles are characterized by unprecedented levels of aero-structural-controls-propulsion interactions, a… more
Abstract:Flow-through raceways have velocities below that needed to remove solids from rearing areas and thus require intermittent, manual sweeping to remove the solids producing long solid residence times and exposure to mechanical breakage which results in increased phosphorous leaching and poor fish… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project develops a two-stage culture process of heterotrophic microalgae with a high cell density of more than 100 g/L to produce omega-3 fatty acids, specifically DHA, from the crude glycerol produced as a by-product by the biodiesel industry.… more
Abstract:This proposal suggests research on security issues for mobile databases running on a mobile ad hoc network (MANET). It will explore both state of the art commercial systems and advanced research issues for mobile security management. The first step will involve an extensive study of the commercial… more
Abstract:The recent wave of mass casualties plaguing the public safety community showed that the incident commander s situational awareness of the first responders can be quickly and easily overwhelmed. At emergency scenes, with the overburdened first responders and unreliable communication infrastructure,… more
Abstract:This effort will identify and model the critical functional/physical system and subsystem requirements, components, subcomponents, and key performance parameters for a shock response spectrum test facility that is capable of multi-axis fuze testing.
Abstract:Military personnel and emergency responders often wear personal protective equipment (PPE) and clothing and often need some auxiliary means of personal body cooling to reduce heat stress and illness. However, no available products provide an acceptable balance of performance, size and weight,… more
Abstract:U.S Navy spends a huge amount of money to address corrosion maintenance problems for various air platform material such as aluminum alloys, steel and magnesium alloys. Improving corrosion resistance of magnesium alloys may improve 50% life-cycle costs and provide a number of performance… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project develops a pretreatment process for biomass that will be used as feedstock for making biofuels, thereby solving a significant problem in this process. Before plant and tree material (biomass) can be used to produce biofuels, or… more
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

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.
