The chemistry behind the new sensor has been proven, example sensors were fabricated, and the… more
Abstract:Scanning Probe Microscopy, SPM, is a strategically vital tool for nanotechnology research, a 250 million dollars per year industry essential to such multibillion-dollar downstream industries as materials and pharmaceuticals. However, the single biggest drawback to SPM is its inability to obtain any… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project seeks to develop the prototype of a characterization system which can perform IR spectroscopy and imaging at sub-100nm spatial resolution and thus break the 5 micron resolution barrier that has limited IR spectroscopy for the last 50… more
Abstract:The Anautics CourseBook Project will address three national critical issues in mathematics education the need to support standards based instruction, the need to raise student achievement scores through effective teaching, the need for instruction management through electronic curriculum guidance,… more
Abstract:The Global War on Terrorism is increasing pressure for DOD depots to expedite the return of serviceable weapon systems to the warfighter while maintaining or decreasing maintenance costs. Each military service has responded to this challenge by undertaking enterprise-wide logistics modernization… more
Abstract:Many Department of Defense (DoD) weapon systems are operating beyond their original design specifications, resulting in failures requiring unplanned parts, materials and sustainment procedures. Such U.S. Air Force weapon systems are collectively denoted as aging aircraft. A large number of aging… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Site-specific protein phosphorylation is essential for signal transduction in mammalian cells, and perturbation in phosphoprotein levels is a hallmark of cancerous transformation. Unfortunately there are no sensitive me
thods for detecting multiple… more
Abstract:"Situation or Problem" Immersion frying is a popular food preparation method. U.S. Consumers enjoy billions of pounds of low cost and taste appealing fried foods annually. Sensorial properties include golden color, crunchy crust, tender-moist core, and pleasing flavors. Unfortunately,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The aim of the work proposed here is to demonstrate the feasibility Encouraging Handwashing Messages (EHM). The intent of EHM is to increase hand hygiene on a hospital floor by rewarding good hand hygiene with a voice m
essage praising the listener. In Phase I,… more
Abstract:Andrews Space proposes an inflatable rigidizable wing that can be stored folded or rolled up, and deployed at altitude via an inflation system, and will then cure to form a rigid wing improving the reliability and reducing the risk of an inflatable wing. It will also be much lighter and have a much… more
Abstract:The problem of debris propagation and impact location has been studied since the formation of the Missile Defense Agency because accurate prediction of where and with what probability the fragments created during an intercept will impact the ground is crucial to the determination of possible… more
Abstract:For modern, complex aircraft systems and avionics subsystems, coupling full-wave solutions to the electronic circuitry models is critical in order to accurately predict RF (radio frequency) system-level performance in the presence of electromagnetic signals originating from other avionics on the… more
Abstract:Radar targets provide a rich scattering environment that produces from 5-25 dB target fluctuations. The spatial dependence of target scattering means that targets produce essentially independent scattering returns when radiated from sufficiently different directions. Thus, if receivers are… more
Abstract:Military aircraft come replete with interconnected electronic systems (e.g., communication, radar, and navigation systems). As the operating frequencies broaden and systems become more complex, their proper functioning is increasingly threatened by electromagnetic interference (EMI) from high-power… more
Abstract:This Phase I contract proposal will evaluate and identify markers associated with prostate cancer progenitor stem cells, that differentiate these cells from adult tissue stem cells and benign prostate progenitor cells. The eventual goal of this work would be to develop a high throughput blood-based… more
Abstract:The goal of this proposal is to develop directed energy transfer methods for imaging, tissue ablation and release of therapeutic modalities targeted to the vasculature of prostate cancer. The platform technology is a freeze-dried human platelet (Stasix par ticles) that contains super paramagnetic… more
Abstract:We aim to prepare a Phase I feasibility study of printed integrated circuits based on transistors using single wall carbon nanotube (SWCNT) fabrics. We propose to explore the feasibility of fabricating CNT circuits using ink-jet printing technology. A detailed literature and trade analysis review… more
Abstract:Operating across international borders in cooperation with a multitude of domestic and foreign institutions and scientists, the DOE needs to protect its high performance science networks (such as ESnet and USnet) from destruction by outside adversaries and rogue insiders.

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.
