Abstract:Information is one of the key warfighting resources of the 21st century as evidenced by the emphasis placed on ubiquitous communication strategies such as the Global Information Grid (GIG) initiated in 2004. However, the equipment, applications and networks comprising the Department of Defense's… more
Abstract:Brushfire proposes to adapt our revolutionary FireBreak architecture to include Network Probe capabilities to assist Army network operations personnel who must detect, trouble-shoot, and resolve network issues. These capabilities defined in the Phase I research project will enhance all network… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a common complication of diabetes mellitus and a leading cause of blindness in developed countries. Abnormal angiogenesis in the retina or retinal neovascularization (NV) is one of the major
pathological changes in DR. Retinal NV can… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a common complication of diabetes and a leading cause of blindness in the world. Diabetic macular edema (DME) and retinal neovascularization (NV) are the two major pathological alternatio
ns leading to vision loss in patients with… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Retinal vascular leakage or breakdown of the blood-retina barrier (BRB) is an early feature of diabetic retinopathy (DR) and can lead to diabetic macular edema (DME), which is the single greatest cause of vision loss in
diabetic patients. Currently, there is no… more
Abstract:Technological advances in energy harvesting (EH) offer significant benefits to powering micro aerial vehicles (MAVs) by extending mission length and range. Currently, batteries limit the range and mission time of MAVs since the batteries contain a finite supply of energy. The proposed research is… more
Abstract:Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE's), or prion diseases, are caused by a unique transmissible agent hypothesized to be a misfolded form (PrPD) of a normal host protein (PrPC). We will use chronic wasting disease (CWD) as a model prion agent because of growing concern about this agent,… more
Abstract:"The National Research Council has concluded that ammonia is a major concern for
air quality at global, national and regional scales. In the US, livestock operations are
believed to contribute over 80% of the total emissions of ammonia. Specific interest in
ammonia emissions from livestock… more
Abstract:"This project will test the feasibility of a breath alkane as an indicator of respiratory health in
bovine. Significant losses due to bovine respiratory disease (BRD) occur in the U.S. beef
industry with estimated annual losses at $1 billion due to higher medical costs, decreased weight
gain, lower… more
Abstract:Passage in 1996 of the Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA) and Amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDW) reflected these concerns and required EPA to develop a screening program, using appropriate validation test systems and other scientifically relevant information, to determine whether… more
Abstract:The Army is using robots in ever increasing number to execute it mission across its spectrum of operations. Although these robots provide significant operational benefits, the Army currently lacks an adequate, automated Command and Control (C2) systems to communicate relevant information from them… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): At InterGenetics Incorporated we have developed a prototype multigenic, logistic regression model, called OncoVue(r), to predict sporadic breast cancer risk. This model incorporates polymorphisms in several genes invol
ved in diverse processes implicated in… more
Abstract:The objective of this proposal is to further develop IV-VI PbSnSe detectors epitaxially grown on Si substrates. The motivation of fabricating IV-VI detector arrays on Si is based on the following advantages of IV-VI Pb-salt semiconductors. (1) The large dielectric constant helps screen and localize… more
Abstract:In this Phase II project Nomadics will novate our research to a spin-out company Nico Technologies. Nomadics will remain a subcontractor during this transition. The team proposes a new treatment for injuries from mustard gas based on biodegradable inverted colloidal crystal scaffolds impregnated… more
Abstract:Many of the engineering tasks necessary for adequate Aircraft Battle Damage Repair Assessment are currently being performed manually. These manual engineering calculations can be arduous, time consuming, and error prone. Periodic turnover of ABDR personnel exacerbates this challenge and highlights… 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.
