Abstract:ABSTRACT: Solar arrays play a key role in the operation of spacecrafts and unmanned aerial vehicles. Traditionally, inorganic semiconductor based solar arrays have been used for space applications because of their highest efficiencies. However, these solar arrays have several major limitations like… more
Abstract:Worldwide there are a number of synchrotron beamlines dedicated to resonant soft x-ray inelastic scattering. There are also new beamlines currently being designed to take advantage of improved third generation synchrotron radiation sources and this powerful experimental technique for probing… more
Abstract:The effectiveness of synchrotron radiation science is being hindered by the limited availability of advanced detectors. This is due to the limited deployment of existing detectors as well as limited development effort to provide new advanced capabilities. As synchrotron radiation experiments become… more
Abstract:525 Solutions will manufacture highly economical and biodegradable uranium-from-seawater sorbents from fishing industry waste, and provide them to government-designated mining companies, at the same time leveraging the governmental funds to create a sustainable chitin products business, enabling… more
Abstract:Brayton Energy is a developer of turbomachinery systems, specializing in gas turbines, turbojets, turbochargers, and turbo-compounding equipment. In the proposed program, Brayton will design and bench-test the critical elements of novel single-shaft turbocharger with integral motor/alternator… more
Abstract:At NOVATIO Engineering, our solution to this problem is practical, novel, proven at a smaller scale and now demonstrated at the 3 kW size range: conversion of a commercial lightweight gasoline generator to operate with diesel fuel or JP-8 in spark ignition mode. Prior to this Phase I SBIR effort,… more
Abstract:A development program is proposed for a design automation software package that enables the generation of complex surfaces, with user defined or automated definition of point charge and hydrophobic/hydrophilic properties, using DNA origami as a presentation substrate. Building upon Parabon"s… more
Abstract:The recent use of organophosphate (OP) nerve agents against combatants and civilians in Syria has validated the importance of developing new drugs and biologics that sequester and catalytically degrade organophosphate (OP) nerve agents in the body before they cause morbidity and mortality. We… more
Abstract:PrivaTran proposes to develop a semi-active laser (SAL) receiver read-out integrated circuit (ROIC) with interface to government furnished equipment (GFE) sensor arrays for advanced dual-band SAL receiver systems. Large-area focal plane array (FPA) technology and the PrivaTran ROIC provide high… more
Abstract:We will develop test methods to assess the performance of Missile Defense interceptors and space sensors in the presence of natural and man-made radiation environments. By augmenting an existing hardware-in-the-loop facility, radiation environment testing is accomplished through an incremental,… more
Abstract:User Systems, Inc (USI) is developing the Unusual Activity or Inactivity Detector (UAID) to automatically search a time series of SAR imagery of a given location to find areas of interest. Changes between consecutive image pairs and movers in the scene ar
Abstract:There is growing interest in computerized systems to increase accessibility
of assessments for students with disabilities. Technology offers an ideal platform for implementing Universal Design (UD) principles for assessment to better accommodate student diversity and support broad student… more
Abstract:Employment is essential for helping individuals with intellectual disabilities achieve independence, financial security, and self-sufficiency to be active members in the community as well as foster a higher quality of life more generally. However, only 25% of individuals with intellectual… more
Abstract:A critical aspect of operating and maintaining an offshore wind turbine is turbine access. By facilitating crew access to turbine in most any weather, repair and maintenance tasks can be performed in a timely manner. This enhances turbine availability which in turn increases annual energy… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The floor of an ALC is like a well-orchestrated dance.

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.
