Abstract:Scheduling is a manual chore consuming valuable senior staff time and resulting in conflict and ineComputerized solutions which optimize scheduling are possible. Such a program, Doctors On Call Schedoptimizes medium-scale scheduling has been developed and has proved successful in more than two… more
Abstract:This Phase I research is intended to evaluate the feasibility of manufacturing low-cost, acid-resistant sanitary sewer pipe from sulfur concrete. Sulfur is an abundant mineral recovered from coking, natural gas processing, and petroleum refining. Secondary recovery of sulfur, resulting from… more
Abstract:Unsteady buffet forces excite the vertical tails of aircraft flying at high angles of attack and cause excessive stress and vibration in the tail structure. This results in increased fatigue which ultimately reduces aircraft life. It has been shown by ACX that distributed piezoceramics can… more
Abstract:Herein ACX proposes a damage detection system based on ACX's QuickPack+ technology to combine piezoelectric actuators and sensors in a robust, easily mounted transducer package. The QuickPack encapsulates a piezoceramic with insulating flex circuit material and a simple connector. The transducer… more
Abstract:ACX proposes an innovative new process for the manufacture of smart structures using a High Velocity Oxy-Fuel (HVOF) thermal spray process. This simple, multi-step process will be capable of depositing electroded piezoceramic coatings. The coatings will be poled while still hot, reducing poling… more
Abstract:ACX proposes to develop durable and reliable conformal geometry actuator packages. These packages will have the ability to operate as linear actuators for motion control applications as well as to conform to structures with curved surfaces for applications requiring induced strain actuation. These… more
Abstract:Active Devices proposes an innovation for energy harvesting using piezoelectric based approaches to extract energy from mechanical vibrations. This innovation consists of a piezoelectric element for energy transduction, rectifier circuits for extraction, and storage devices to store power for use… more
Abstract:Significant deficiencies exist in the laser source technology for IRCM, specifically in the limited pulse rep-rate capability, limited average power output and capability to be transitioned to military environments. We propose a novel tandem OPO concept that uses two noncritical phasematched OPO's… more
Abstract:We propose to develop and deliver a compact, high pulse repetition rate, mid-infrared optical parametric oscillator wavelength converter and cw fiber coupled diode pumped, Q-switched, Nd:YV04 diode pumped laser. A new nonlinear material, periodic poled Lithium Niobate (PPLN) enables an OPO to… more
Abstract:CW mid-IR sources, capable of delivering 5 Watts of average power, are required in the 2-5 micron range for IR counter measures. To date, solid state laser approaches have been limited to less than 1-2 Watts of average power due to absorption and adverse thermal effects in the nonlinear… more
Abstract:Presently there are no broadly tenable, narrow linewidth souces that operate throughout the mid-infrared (mid-IR) region of the spectrum, from 1 to 5 microns. Traditional sources have very low spectral brightness (low power per unit spectral bandwidth). This proposal describes a novel approach to… 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.
