Many interesting proteins have proven to be difficult to… more
Abstract:The development of Wide Bandgap Semiconductors such as GaN has enabled tremendous improvements in power amplifier performance such as operational frequency and output power. These device improvements have in turn enabled performance and capability improvements in the end applications such as EW… more
Abstract:Failures in aircraft electrical power systems can compromise the readiness, safety, and capabilities of the war-fighter. Furthermore, if the root cause for the failure cannot be quickly identified, this can lead to increased maintenance costs and potential downtime for the aircraft. In this effort,… more
Abstract:State-of-the-art electrical starter/generator (ES/G) systems have become increasingly complex in design and integration due to significant power-demand increase in more electric aircraft initiatives such as the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). They must provide high performance and high efficiency with… more
Abstract:The overall objective of this research project is to investigate autonomous control architectures for spacecraft power systems. Such techniques will be critical for deep space missions that face inhospitable environments, unpredictable operating conditions, and communication delays. The distributed… more
Abstract:The US Army and Marines rely significantly on fossil-fuel based tactical power generation to provide electrical energy to deployed troops in small camps and forward operation bases. These generators are sized to support the expected maximum power but are often operated far below rated power due to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The move towards more-electric aircraft continues to increase the complexity of electrical power systems (EPS) on modern airborne platforms. In addition to ever expanding peak and regenerative power demands, several of the loads can introduce very high rates of current change (dI/dt)… more
Abstract:The movement to more-electric architectures during the past decade in military and commercial airborne systems continues to increase the complexity of designing and specifying the electrical power system. The addition of numerous high-power electric loads has drastically altered the dynamics of… more
Abstract:PCKA has developed a dynamic, real-time thermal capacity algorithm and gauge for predicting current and anticipated fuel heat sink capability on a fifth-generation tactical aircraft.

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.
