AAC proposes an innovative concept for repeatedly stowing, launching, guiding, recovering, and restoring one or more UAVs without sacrificing… more
Abstract:Acellent proposes to develop a smart joint structural health monitoring (SHM) sensor network that can autonomously assess in real time the structural stability of buildings. The sensor network will use piezoelectric transducers and temperature sensors to characterize damage in, and monitor the… more
Abstract:Acellent Technologies proposes to build an innovative and cost-effective ultra portable system for detection of damage in personnel ballistic armor inserts. The system upon will provide in-situ capability to detect damage in armor inserts by personnel in the field. Current techniques commonly used… more
Abstract:Solid rocket motor cases are subject to a variety of external environmental and loading conditions from cradle-to-grave. These conditions can significantly impact the performance and decrease safety of the rocket motor. Fueling of the rocket motor adds an additional complexity in that inspection of… more
Abstract:Acellent Technologies proposes to develop a modular plug-and-play SMART Lego SHM system to obtain real-time information for panel identification and damage detection in satellite panels during storage, upon assembly and prior to launch. This will potentially enable development of low cost,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The generation, manipulation, storage and retrieval of chemical structures and subsequent calculation of various properties, often related to their biological activity, have become extremely important for drug discovery
. The resulting field of Cheminformatics… more
Abstract:This STTR phase II proposal addresses AFOSR's task to: "Develop seamless, easy to use, efficient code to calculate electronic wave functions and potential energy surfaces of molecules and predict kinetic rate constants for reactions a priori." This is a long-unsolved problem, fundamental to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The Health and Retirement Study is one of the world's most important data resources for the study of aging. The basic longitudinal survey instrument has been supplemented with data from a variety of other sources includ
ing Social Security Administration records… more
Abstract:Cultures differ in cognition. These cognitive differences naturally result in expectancy violations and perceptual mismatches between people of different cultures. And while they are, by nature, difficult to observe, a culture's cognitive attributes significantly influence individual perceptions… more
Abstract:Contemporary operational environments are often characterized by ambiguous, multi-cultural contexts, where Army Soldiers must rapidly adapt without extensive prior knowledge of a region or its people. Ongoing training development efforts are addressing the need for general cultural competence, but… more
Abstract:Acoustech Corporation (Acoustech), Applied Physical Sciences Corporation (APS), and Navmar Applied Sciences Corporation (Navmar) have teamed to develop a low cost underwater detection system that will protect assets located along the shoreline from domestic and foreign terrorists. Acoustech will… more
Abstract:Realizing the promise of nuclear fusion depends in part on effective plasma facing components (PFCs) that can withstand the intense heat loads, forces, and neutron bombardment of long-pulse high-power reactor operation. A single reactor such as ITER will require thousands of PFCs. Because… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Proposed is the development of manufacturing processes for electrostrictive arrays allowing for real-time ultrasound volumetric imaging. To date, the commercial development of 2D transducer arrays having thousands of ar
ray elements has been significantly limited… more
Abstract:Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) is currently used as a transparent electrically conductive coating on aircraft canopies to provide electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding for electronic components. The problem with ITO is that it is relatively soft and scratches easily, requiring frequent replacement of… more
Abstract:Current production methods of tail booms for rotary-wing aircraft are expensive, inefficient, and produce hazardous byproducts. Conventional methods for production of high end composite parts are both labor intensive and expensive. Alternate methods, such as curing parts in ovens to eliminate… 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.
