Abstract:The objective of this work is to develop and demonstrate a novel surface engineering concept for protection of Aircraft Brake Pressure Plates. Carbon-made aircraft breaking system components experience increased service temperatures and, when swiped by the temp stick, chemically react with the… more
Abstract:The objective of this work is to investigate and develop dense corrosion resistant coatings to improve performance of aircraft components (AC). Cadmium metal (Cd), although a hazardous substance, is still being used as a sacrificial coating on majority of AC component. The PVD-based technique is… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to develop a new Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) detector system, which will measure signals over seven orders of magnitude with a digitization resolution of better than 1 percent (from a single laser pulse). The detector… more
Abstract:75824-Induction cores, used to accelerate the heavy ion beams in inertial fusion, are built around the outer diameter of the cryostat that houses the superconducting quadrupole array. A compact cryostat would be highly desirable for reducing the cost of the induction cores. Recent experience with… more
Abstract:75867 Mercury (Hg) emissions are an important environmental problem because Hg is a volatile heavy metal that is toxic and bioaccumulates to a high degree in animals and humans. The major sources of Hg emissions include fossil fuel combustion, waste incineration, and chloralkali production. With… more
Abstract:The objective of the proposed Phase II effort is to transfer proven sensor technology from the laboratory breadboard to a functional flight-ready prototype for installation in an aircraft fuel tank. In the Phase I effort, a novel spectroscopic technique was shown to be an effective method for… more
Abstract:Laser induced thermal acoustics (LITA) is a nonintrusive, transient-grating optical technique that provides simultaneous high-accuracy measurements of velocity, sound-speed, and thermal diffusivity among other parameters. In a fluid of known composition, sound speed and thermal diffusivity are… more
Abstract:he use of an inter-turbine burner for improving the part power performance of small turboshaft engines in proposed. An inter-turbine burner is a second combustor placed between the gas generator exit and the power turbine to "reheat" the engine gas stream before it enters the power turbine. The… more
Abstract:AdveNsys, Inc. will join with Arizona State University to develop a neuromorphic analog system to control an actuated, lightweight, powered ankle-foot orthosis. The neuromorphically actuated orthosis will provide mobility in the battlefield for soldiers with lower-leg wounds or fractures to enable… more
Abstract:As the OPS performs audits of the pipeline operators, pursuant to the Pipeline Safety Improvement Act of 2002 and Sub-part O of the newly released 49 CFR 192, the focus is no longer on the existence of a plan, rather, it is on the existence of a process, the completion of tasks defined within those… more
Abstract:Reusable space vehicles currently being designed by the United States Air Force (USAF) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for both military and commercial applications require innovative structural components that are both light weight and able to withstand the severe… more
Abstract:A compact, autonomous and rugged instrument to measure the concentration of inorganic ions, and possibly organic acids, in atmospheric aerosols is proposed. This instrument will combine an innovative method for particle concentration and collection with emerging ?laboratory on a chip? analytical… more
Abstract:76023-Among the contributors to atmospheric pollution, carboxylic acids (including mono- and dicarboxylic acids, aliphatic ketoacids, and aromatic acids) are an important class of oxygenated, organic compounds in atmospheric aerosols. To better understand their sources and atmospheric… 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.
