Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is concerned with the development of an integrated laser system which can deliver both intense high energy laser pulses and low energy high peak power pulses from the same device. The purpose of such a device would be the use of high energy… more
Abstract:The proposed effort focuses upon exploring the potential of a combination of neural, wavelet, and fuzzy logic processing to yield significant performance improvements needed for future seeker scene processors. Seeker scene processors must rapidly process images to detect and classify objects such… more
Abstract:This project will explore the potential of neural network and wavelet algorithms to yield significant performance improvements needed for future acoustic detection and classification systems. Future systems must automatically recognize complex acoustic signatures in realistic environments. … more
Abstract:Growing interest in vaccination and diversity of new vaccines which can be administered as a single dose for timely response and prolonged immunity evoked use of absorbable polymers for developing controlled delivery systems. Although absorbable microspheres were explored for controlled delivery of… more
Abstract:Identified needs for new opportunities to enhance agriculture's rold as a reliable supplier of new industrial materials directed the attention to soy protein, an abundant basic agricultural product, to explore its potential as a viable source of such materials. This and the growing interest in… more
Abstract:A major constraint to the continued development of the hybrid striped bass industry is the seasonally limited supply of fingerlings. The availability of gravid brood animals is extremely limited outside the normal spawning season and production of fingerlings in earthen ponds is poor after pond… more
Abstract:The number of electrical/electronic devices in heavy-duty vehicles are increasing rapidly. Many of these devices require a "clean" source of power, which may theoretically be supplied by a separate ground. Currently, tractors operate on one of three grounding methods, the frame ground being the… more
Abstract:In order to realize the full commercial possibilities of wavelet technology, it is critical for potential users to be able to explore candidate applications conveniently. Neural Technology, Inc., (NTI) proposes to create a powerful wavelet "toolbox" for Silicon Graphics workstations. This toolbox… more
Abstract:CRYOPRESERVATION OFFERS THE OPPORTUNITY TO STORE EMBRYOS AND LARVAE OF THE HARD CLAM, MERCENARIA MERCENARIA, FOR EXTENDED PERIODS WITH NEGLIGIBLE LOSSES. OBJECTIVES FOR PHASE I RESEARCH INCLUDE (1) TO DETERMINE THE EFFICACY OF SELECTED CRYOPROTECTANTS IN PRESERVING AND STORING 2-8 CELL EMBRYOS, (2)… more
Abstract:THE APPLICANT ORGANIZATION HAS DISCOVERED AND EXPERIMENTALLY OBSERVED THAT AN ELECTROACOUSTICAL COMPENSATION (ELAC) CIRCUIT COUNTERACTS THE OCCLUSION EFFECT EXPERIENCED BY HEARING AID WEARE S OF UNVENTED HEARING AIDS. UNVENTED HEARING AIDS WITH THE ELAC CIRCUIT SHOW PROMISE FOR A SIGNIFICANT… more
Abstract:The objective of this effort is to develop low-cost wavelet-based compression algorithms, for transmitting real-time video data over noisy narrow bandwidth radiolinks. These algorithms will incorporate a variety of supplemental image processing capabilities, such as adaptive focusing, smooth… more
Abstract:PRELIMINARY RESEARCH HAS SHOWN THAT A NEURAL NETWORK CAN SOLVE THE WEAPON-TO-TARGET ASSIGNMENT (WTA) PROBLEM -A COMPUTATIONALLY INTRACTABLE PROBLEM. THE NETWORK, SIMULATED ON A LOW COST PARALLEL PROCESSOR IN A PC HOST, HAS PRODUCED THE BEST QUALITY AND FASTEST SOLUTIONS TO A REALISTIC THREAT… more
Abstract:THE BUSINESS OF AQUACULTURE HAS INCREASED SUBSTANTIALLY IN THE UNITED STATES IN RECENT YEARS. THE USE OF INTENSIVE AQUACULTURE TECHNIQUES IN THE U.S. HAS PLACED AN INCREASING EMPHASIS ON MAINTAINING WATER QUALITY. DEVELOPMENT OF A LOW-COST AND RELIABLE AUTOMATED WATER QUALITY AND FEED CONDITION… more
Abstract:THE HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT EXISTING AT THE BORE SURFACE OF GUN BARRELS USED IN HIGH RATE OF FIRE AIRCRAFT CANNONS PRESENTS A FORMIDABLE DESIGN CHALLENGE TO THE GUN DESIGNER. HEAT, FRICTION, CORROSION AND WEAR AT THE BORE SURFACE ACT IN UNISON TO RAPIDLY DETERIORATE THE BORE. CHROME PLATING IS PRESENTLY… more
Abstract:IN 1985, 947 BILLION GALLONS OF WATER WERE CONTAMINATED WITH1.4 BILLION POUNDS OF CHMICAL REAGENTS IN FROTH FLOTATION SEPARATION OF INDUSTRIAL MINERALS IN THE UNITED STATES. IT IS ESTIMATED THAT THESE APPROXIMATE QUANTITIES WERE ALSO USED IN 1986 AND 1987. OF THIS TOTAL, APPROXIMATELY 42.2 MILLION… 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.
