Abstract:A promising approach to the clean use of abundant U.S. coal resources is the production of hydrogen through coal gasification. The synthesis gas resulting from coal gasification is required to undergo several processes in order to produce hydrogen of sufficient purity for fuel cells or… more
Abstract:Governments and industry have recently placed significant emphasis on finding affordable renewable fuels to supplement and/or replace fossil fuel use. Biodiesel produced from microalgae has been identified as a highly attractive option for affordable renewable fuel. This project will develop a low… more
Abstract:Contemporary operating environments require more cross-cultural interaction than ever before. Cross-cultural competence is critical to mission success, and traditional competence frameworks do not consider the unique demands of Army Soldiers. In Phase 1, a preliminary developmental stage model of… more
Abstract:The practice of removing aircraft from service and disassembling parts of its structure for periodic inspection negatively impacts readiness and leads to high sustainment costs. Using Acoustic Ideas''''''''s uniquely powerful and versatile phased array technology we will develop a novel inspection… more

Both the journal and foil components of the bearing will be coated. The journal will be coated with an innovative graded, nanocomposite structure while the foil… more
Abstract:High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamps are used extensively for large area lighting ¿ such as for parking lots, streets, and warehouses ¿ and are increasingly being used for general lighting in stores and homes. Improving the efficiency of HID lamps would result in significant energy savings. This… more
Abstract:Predicting the damage to structures commonly found in Urban Environments to the effects of intentional or accidental small explosions is a difficult problem, often resulting in hazards to nearby personnel and equipment. Numerous commercial and military organization desire models that can predict the… more
Abstract:A nine-month Phase I project is proposed to demonstrate the feasibility of developing high-fidelity physics-based (HFPB) weapons effects FRMs for reinforced concrete walls and floor/ceiling slabs to meet current AFRL requirements. Modeling issues for both hardened bunkers and non-hardened… more
Abstract:In many cases, humans still out-perform today's best control systems. We could presumably approach human performance in these cases by building systems that more closely mimic human information processing, but unfortunately, that is still poorly understood. "Intelligent systems" try hard to mimic… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I project an Optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging MEMS-based probe of 2.8 mm diameter will be designed and manufactured. The plan is to apply MEMS design and wire bonding free packaging techniques for miniaturization of the probe. In this… 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.
