Abstract:Mass and volume efficient solar arrays are sought by NASA, DoD and commercial space to enable high power missions from 20-30 kW up to 300 kW. Flexible substrate arrays can have higher specific power (W/kg) and specific volume (kW/m3) than conventional arrays. Typical designs for flexible substrate… more
Abstract:NASA is keen on advancing technologies for lightweight composite cryotanks for heavy lift vehicles for future NASA missions. Two primary challenges must be overcome to enable the use of composite tanks for these new classes of heavy launchers. One is to develop novel, microcrack-resistant, polymer… more
Abstract:Carrier aviation is dependent on the ability to recover aircraft expeditiously and safely aboard ship. The system that arrests the aircraft, the Arresting Gear system, utilizes slippers or bearing materials between moving components. The Arresting Gear system on Navy carrier aircraft utilizes… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The exponential increase of diabetics and the elderly in the U.S. has at least tripled cataract surgeries in just two decades. As many as half of these surgeries will lead to posterior capsular opacification (PCO), which requires follow-up surgery using Nd:YAG… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is the most costly and second most common hospital-acquired infection (HAI), accounting for over 86% of hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP). Some 300,000 HAP patients are treated annually in the U.S., at an estimated annual… more
Abstract:Up to 2700 terawatt-hours per year of geothermal electricity generation capacity has been shown to be available within North America, typically with wells drilled into geologically active regions of the earths crust where this energy is concentrated (Huttrer, 2001). Of this potential, about half is… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Digital beamforming is a key to maximum bandwidth utilization and flexibility for communication satellites. Adaptive beamforming further enhances this flexibility by more effectively removing interferers in the spatial domain. However, adaptive beamforming doesn't account for… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The DF & NN team proposes to provide automated space weather (SpWx) attribution tools to characterize abnormal events detected at operational sites using the DF & NN patented Enterprise Satellite-as-a-Sensor (E-SAS) system. The DF & NN Space Situational Awareness (SSA) fusion… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The current AF aircraft maintenance system has a high operational cost of unplanned, premature, and missed maintenance. The"red"operational anomaly detection thresholds are not adaptive to individual aircraft history nor to changes in operations causing"ringers"and… more
Abstract:The technical objective is to improve High-Level Information Fusion (HLIF) robustness by adaptive use of external"data repurposing". The approach provides the functional decomposition and problem-to-solution-space mappings by extending the Dual Node Network (DNN) Data Fusion & Resource… more
Abstract:Data Fusion Corporation (DFC) proposes the continued development of prototype, next-generation GPS interference detection, characterization and mitigation modules that can be incorporated into the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) Software Defined Radio (SDR) or a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS)… 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.
