Abstract:Miniature electron spin resonance spectroscopy technology (Micro-ESR) provides a quantitative, real-time measure of oil condition including oxidation, sulfation, water content and additive depletion. In the event corrosion does occur, the sensor can quantitatively measure iron oxides in the oil.… more
Abstract:Acumentrics is developing a new reformer system capable of significantly increasing efficiency while reducing components, component cost, and system complexity. This proposal applies that system to biofuel as well as other fuels as the technology is scaled up from small units in order to develop an… more
Abstract:Large format lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries with ineffective cell isolation are potentially hazardous when exposed to conditions such as crush, overcharge, discharge, high temperature and internal short circuit. The recent Boeing incidents and similar incidents in the automotive industry underscore… more
Abstract:The Navy Ohio Replacement Ballistic Missile Submarine Program is a major endeavor aiming at designing and building a new class of 12 ballistic missile submarines (SSBNs) to replace the current force of SSBNs. Current Ohio-Class SSBNs are armed with Trident ballistic missiles or Tomahawk missiles if… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Fires initiating in engine nacelles and dry bays are the most common causes of loss of aircraft. However, since the Montreal Protocol restricting the production of Halons, a replacement has not yet been accepted by the aircraft survivability community despite numerous testing programs.… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Abstract (No proprietary info): Thermal interface materials (TIMs) constitute an essential part of thermal management which is quickly becoming the limiting factor in high power, high functional density, and increasingly small-sized electronics for future U.S. Air Force (AF) platforms.… more
Abstract:Thermal batteries are primary batteries containing solid cathodes and anodes sandwiched around an inorganic solid electrolyte that remains inert under ambient conditions until melted using pyrotechnic materials. Today"s SOTA thermal batteries rely on complex, heavily engineered systems with… more

Abstract:Submarines have a need for situational awareness at all times. They are equipped with Fat Line acoustic arrays such as the T-16 and the TB-34 in order to provide this awareness. However, at low tow speeds the array droops from front to back and also loses straightness. This spatial distortion… 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.
