Abstract:The U.S. Navy is pursuing innovative concepts to substantially improve life of grease-packed hanger bearings on the tilt-rotor V-22 Osprey aircraft. In our successful Phase I program, we developed and demonstrated greases with performance far superior to current MIL-PRF-81322 grease over a wide… more
Abstract:To address the U.S. Department of EnergyÂ¿s (DOE) long-term cleanup and management responsibility for Cold-War-era production facilities, and to support DOEÂ¿s efforts for monitoring the behavior of contaminants around existing and future waste disposal and storage areas, a leadership-class… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II Project concerns Ultrapure Water (UPW), the life blood of the semiconductor industry. The proposed instrument seeks to satisfy the ITRS requirements on two counts: 1. full flow inspection, and 2. detection of sub-100nm liquid-borne particles. 1… more
Abstract:Agricultural mulch films are used for the production of vegetables and fruits. Thin plastic films (typically polyethylene) are spread along the rows of plants at the beginning of the growing season. Holes are made in the films to plant the seeds or seedlings. The use of mulch films speeds the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Multimedia social skills instruction for at-risk adolescents. The purpose of this project is to design, pilot test, and field test interactive multimedia (IM) programs for teaching social skills to youths with social-adjustment problems. The instructional… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The purpose of this project is to design and pilot test a prototype interactive multimedia (IM) program for teaching oral language strategies to students in grades 6 through 9. The instructional program will be designed for use in a variety of settings, including… 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.
