Abstract:Methods for obtaining highly purified Langerhans Cells (LC) directly from epidermis or by directed differentiation of CD34+ progenitor cells are proposed. Development and commercialization of products for LC purification will aid basic research on the role of LC in skin diseases such as psoriasis,… more
Abstract:The goal is to develop a knowledge-based expert management system to deliver cost-effective quality medical care. This system will allow health care providers to plan and allocate services within the existing budgeting and economic constraints. The methodology consists of 1) building an integrated… more
Abstract:Because of the extreme compactness, very good portability, reliability, and ease-of-use of the diode lasers, high power systems that combine the light from several diode lasers offer significant ergonomic and economic advantages over solid state lasers in many applications. Applied Optronics Corp… more
Abstract:The USAF Armstrong Laboratory is interested in improving the detection sensitivity of a CaF2 (EU) based detector system (BAG-X) for performing field measurements of low energy (17 keV and 60 keV) x-rays. The detection sensitivity of a system can be enhanced by improving its energy resolution,… more
Abstract:In multi-place jet aircraft the ejection problems are compounded beyond the head, neck and spinal injuries, windblast exposure and flail injuries, but now also include collision proababilities with other ejectees. The problem actually becomes one of collision avoidance by timing or sequencing the… more
Abstract:A novel plasma spray process allows for a highly metallic filled thermoplastic to be deposited on assorted cloth substrates, to create a flexible EMI construction material. Filler causing the EMI property to occur is dry-mixed into the thermoplastic, and the coating composition is created in situ on… more
Abstract:Applied Polymer Systems, Inc (APS) has developed a new plasma spray process capable of applying a polymetric resin binder with high filler levels in coating form over various substrates. The process can be robotically controlled and is environmentally friendly. A vacuum collection system captures… more
Abstract:CURRENT DESIGNS OF AIR FORCE HARD TARGET PENETRATING WEAPONS PLACE THE FUZE WELL IN THE TAIL OF THE WEAPON. THIS LOCATION CAUSES SOME DIFFICULTY FOR A SMART FUZE ALGORITHM TO DISCRIMINATE BETWEEN FLEXIBLE BODY WEAPON RESPONSE AND THE LOADING EFFECTS CAUSED BY THE PENETRATION OF SOIL OR CONCRETE. THE… more
Abstract:THE PRIMARY TECHNIQUES FOR CONDUCTING VULNERABILITY ANALYSES OF MOBILE OR FIXED TARGETS ARE (1) PROBABILISTIC STUDIES USING SIMPLIFIED METHODOLOGIES TO MODEL THE ENTIRE SYSTEM OR PROBLEM AND (2) FIRST PRINCIPLES FINITE ELEMENT OR HYDROCODE CALCULATIONS THAT MODEL DETAILED PHYSICAL INTERACTIONS AND… more
Abstract:FUTURE COMBAT VEHICLES WILL EMPLOY MODULAR ARMOR PROTECTION SYSTEMS THAT CAN BE CHANGED TO MEET DIFFERENT THREAT LEVELS. THESE ADVANCED ARMOR UNITS WILL BE MOUNTED AND DISMOUNTED FROM THE BASIC VEHICLE STRUCTURE, AS NEEDED TO MEET PROTECTION REQUIREMENTS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP… more
Abstract:EACH YEAR IN THE UNITED STATES, THE BREAKAGE OF TREES EXPERIENCED DURING EXTREME WIND EVENTS PRODUCES DAMAGE TO STRUCTURES, AUTOMOBILES, PERSONS, AND LIFELINES, WITH MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN DIRECT DAMAGE AND CLEANUP COSTS. NO RESEARCH HAS BEEN DIRECTED TOWARD ASSESSING THE RISK OF TREE DAMAGE OR… more
Abstract:THE LONG-TERM OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECTS IS TO DEVELOP A HIGH PERFORMANCE SURFACE COIL ARRAY AND MULTIPLEXER FOR MRI IMAGING OF THE HUMAN SPINE. CURRENTLY, THERE IS NO WAY TO IMAGE THE ENTIRE SPINE WITHOUT RESORTING TO WHOLE BODY COILS OR LARGE SURFACE COILS. AVAILABLE SURFACE COILS LOSE SIGNAL TO… more
Abstract:BECAUSE OF THE UNIQUE PROPERTIES OF DIAMOND, RECENTLY DEVELOPED CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITED (CVD) DIAMOND THIN FILMS COULD BE USED IN A WIDE VARIETY OF APPLICATIONS FROM ELECTRONICS TO CUTTING TOOLS, INFRARED OPTICS TO ABRASIVES. HIGH QUALITY DIAMOND FILMS ARE PRESENTLY GROWN AT RATES OF ABOUT 1… more
Abstract:The deposition of a thermally conductive, insulating film of diamond onto high power electronic devices is important for packaging applications for corrosive environments, or high power applications where coolants are used for thermal management. Deposition of diamond will require a basic… more
Abstract:SILICON CARBIDE IS A LEADING NEW CANDIDATE FOR MIRROR BLANKS BECAUSE OF ITS HIGH STIFFNESS, RELATIVELY HIGH THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY, AND ABRASION RESISTANCE. THE BASE MATERIAL CONTAINS PORES OR LARGE GRAINS, WHICH MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO PROVIDE A SMOOTH FRONT SURFACE. RESEARCHERS HAVE DEVELOPED A PROCESS… 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.
