Abstract:High performance fiberoptic switches are in critical demand for use in the ever-growing communication networks and modern defense systems. Fiberoptic switch is the key component to enable much simplified and higher performance Active Optical Networks,where optical signals/channels are dynamically… more
Abstract:Agriculture needs biorational pesticides to serve as replacements in an industry dominated by outdated synthetic chemicals. Residues in the food supply, environmental impact, and worker safety issues underscore the need for novel pesticides. Without a range of products with unique modes of action,… more
Abstract:his Small Business Phase Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I project will investigate microencapsulation technology, including microencapsulated phase change materials (microPCMs), to improve biological control of soilborne plant diseases. Success in this program would enhance the potential of using… more
Abstract:Variation in growth performance and health of feedlot cattle leads to large differences in weigh or degree of finish at the point of harvest. Carcass quality losses alone cost the industry $3.5 billion annually. Traditional management practices of sorting cattle by weight and physical… more
Abstract:A novel fermentation process and extraction system are proposed to produce a biodegradable, non- corrosive deicer from biomass wastes and crops containing sugars and starches. Sodium and calcium chlorides now extensively used in road deicing cause corrosion damage to automobiles, bridges, and… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop an innovative approach for targeting genes involved in a specific trait or pathway using the model cereal plant, rice. Rice is known to have highly conserved disease resistance signal transduction pathways and yet so far a… more
Abstract:Agro-Plastics, Inc. has successfully developed and is commercializing a process that uses agricultural fibers as fillers in virgin plastics. The Agro-Plastic manufacturing plants are designed for small communities, providing employment and non-farm revenues at a time when small rural communities are… more
Abstract:There is an emerging need within military electronics for protection of electronics from the adverse effects of high power electromagnetic radiation. The Department of Defense has a requirement to ensure survivability of important military C3 and weaponssystems against the effects of… more
Abstract:65672 Manufacturing methods for CdZnTe gamma and x-ray pixel detectors, used in medical imaging, are relatively immature. One difficulty with CdZnTe as a detector material is that CdZnTe is more brittle than silicon, so standard bonding approaches frequently result in craters in the detector as… more
Abstract:The principal technology for removing heat from a device remains thermal conduction. In direct chip attach applications the primary path for heat is through the gap between the chip and a heat dissipation device. The thermal properties of the adhesivesthat fill that gap are increasingly dictating… more
Abstract:ASRI proposes to develop a low-cost PC-based Dynamic Signal Analyzer (DSA) utilizing a novel spectral enhancement method to provide incipient fault-detection capabilities for rotating machinery. Based on a new spectral analysis technique called Coherent Phase Line Enhancer (CPLE), the DSA will… more
Abstract:The proposed innovative analysis tool is driven by the need to integrate both analytical and experimental techniques when performing an experiment of spacecraft launch. When available, this tool provides an acoustic engineer access to both the experimental data being measured and analytical… more
Abstract:Environmental control and life support (ECLS) within closed environments must remove humidity from the air both to maintain crew comfort and to recycle potable water. The current state-of-the-art technology recovers water vapor by cooling air to below its dew point in a condensing heat exchanger.… more
Abstract:65575 A tremendous quantity of fossil fuels are consumed each year to heat and cool the country¿s commercial and residential buildings. The use of a renewable energy source, such as solar energy, could avoid both the economic and environmental penalties from high fossil fuel use. However, past… more
Abstract:65251 Desiccants ¿ materials that have a strong affinity for water vapor ¿ can be an important part of an air conditioner that cools and dehumidifies the fresh air used to ventilate buildings. Their use would greatly improve indoor air quality by permitting the building ventilation rate to be… more
Abstract:Atmospheric aerosol plays an important role in climate and climate change, reduced visibility in urban areas, heterogeneous atmospheric reactions, and acid rain production. Fine aerosol from combustion sources is believed to be an important risk factor for cardiopulmonary disease and mortality. The… more
Abstract:65892 It is well known that majority of power line disturbances are ¿voltage sags¿ and momentary outages. Existing power converters/inverters are large, expensive, difficult to control, exhibit slow switching speeds, have poor reverse bias safe operating area, and require high gate currents 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.
