Abstract:Not Available A technique is proposed for reducing the Noise Figure of a wideband fiber optic link by using an external intensity modulator incorporated within a microwave resonant cavity. The proposed innovation is expected to lead to a decrease in passive system Noise Figure by 10-20 dB and is… more
Abstract:Not Available Many types of military and commercial aircraft rely on the use of high-pressure oxygen cylinders to provide respiratory oxygen to crew members during emergency conditions. These cylinders require frequent replenishment to top off the oxygen gas lost during testing, inspection or use… more
Abstract:Not Available Li-Alloy/FeS2 thermal batteries are the predominant thermal cell chemistry today. Despite progress, the use of pressed powders for thermal battery cathodes, anodes, and separators has several intrinsic limitations, including high labor costs associated with material processing… more
Abstract:Small military maritime craft are responsible for the expedient delivery of personnel to an area(s) that will allow for the successful accomplishment of mission objectives. Often these craft are required to operate in littoral (shoreline) areas under various extreme conditions. It is therefore… more
Abstract:Emergent Technologies Corp. (ETC) in conjunction with research partners at West Virginia University has developed and recently patented an innovation antenna that promises to revolutionize the science of antenna design, construction and utilization. The antenna, labeled the Countrawound Toroidal… more
Abstract:In this Phase I effort, Touchtone Research Laberatory will manufacture, test and demonstrate seveal unique attributes of a coal-based carbon foam for use as a fireblock material in laminated composite structures. The carbon foam has several unique attributes, including: hihg thermal insulation… more
Abstract:A material which is stronger than conventional aluminum, less permeable to liquid hydrogen than polymer matrix composites (PMCs), less flammable that PMCs in the presence of liquid oxygen, and can be made into large, complex shapes without an autoclave, would have a significant advantage over… more
Mineral Technologies International, Inc.
This project will demonstrate the technical and economical potential of an integrated process for fine coal recovery as well as for dewatering the clean coal product and briquetting it. A binding agent will be used as a collector in the packed column… more
Abstract:The proposed Distributed Manufacturing Information System will enable small and medium size manufacturing shops to cooperate as a Virtual Corporation for Distributed Manufacturing, to expand their business by extending their capabilities, to fulfill requirements for major quality control… more
Abstract:THIS PROJECT IS STUDYING THE FEASIBILITY OF USING THE IMPROVED COARSELY PACKED COLUMN FLOTATION FOR FINE COAL CLEANING. THIS NEW CONCEPT HAS DEMONSTRATED TECHNICAL SUCCESS AT VARIOUS MINERAL PROCESSING SECTORS OF THE MINING INDUSTRY. THE NEW FLOTATION SYSTEM ALLOWS SIGNIFICANT INCREASE OF THE… more
Abstract:THIN FILM MEMBRANE-BASED SENSORS AND COMPONENTS SHOW PROMISE FOR A VARIETY OF GOVERNMENT AND COMMERCIAL USES. THEY OFFER POTENTIAL FOR VERY HIGH (UP TO 10(12)) AMPLIFICATION GAIN, DIME-SIZED DIMENSIONS, WITH SPECIFICITY AS DESIRED FOR BIOLOGICAL PROCESSES AND AGENTS. EXAMPLES MIGHT INCLUDE MICROBIAL… more
Abstract:DEVELOPMENT OF AN AMPLIFYING CHEMICAL AGENT DETECTOR, INCORPORATING A MODULAR APPROACH TO SENSING OF NERVE AGENTS AND OTHER CHEMICALS OF MILITARY INTEREST, IS PROPOSED. THE THREE MODULES: (1) A DYNAMIC TRIGGER WHICH RESPONDS TO THE CHEMICAL AGENT OF INTEREST; (2) A BIOAMPLIFIER WHICH CONTAINS THE… more
Abstract:BECAUSE OF ITS COMPLEXITY, THE STUDY OF THE NATION'S NATURALGAS SELF- SUFFICIENCY REQUIRES A REGIONAL APPROACH. BEFORE SELF-SUFFICIENCY CAN BE EMPIRICALLY ANALYZED, IT IS NECESSARY TO DELINEATE THE REGIONAL FACTORS INVOLVED. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO ASSESS THE POTENTIAL FOR NATURAL GAS… more
Abstract:PERSONNEL WORKING IN EXTREME ENVIRONMENTS OR WEARING BALLISTIC AND/OR NUCLEAR/BIOLOGICAL/CHEMICAL (NBC) PROTECTIVE CLOTHING ARE SUBJECT TO THE HAZARDS OF OVERHEATING. THESE HAZARDS INCLUDE PHYSICAL DISCOMFORT, DECREASED PHYSICAL AND MENTAL ABILITIES, DEHYDRATION, AND EVENTUALLY DEATH FROM HEAT… more
Abstract:THIS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT EFFORT IS AIMED TOWARD THE VALIDATION AND USE OF A PORTABLE BIOCHEMICAL DETECTOR ("C-PROBE") AS AN INDICATOR FOR HUMAN EXPOSURES TO CARCINOGENIC CHEMICAL AGENTS IN THE FIELD. DURING PHASE I, C-PROBE RESPONSES TO TEST AGENTS WILL BE COMPARED WITH IN VITRO AND IN VIVO… more
Abstract:COUPLING A BIOLOGICAL PROBE TO A MICROELECTRODE OFFERS GREATPOTENTIAL FOR DIRECT, RAPID, SENSITIVE AND SPECIFIC DETECTION OF A WIDE RANGE OF TOXINS, VIRUSES, AND BIOLOGICAL AGENTS. THE PROPOSED IMMINOCHEMICALLY COUPLED ELECTRODE (ICM) OFFERS SIGNIFICANT PROMISE FOR BROAD-SPECTRUM AND SENSITIVE… 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.
