Principal Investigator: Paul Gustavson, Chief Scientist
Award Amount: $119,985.00
Abstract:
The aggregation of entities is considered a practical approach for managing large-scale simulation exercises and improving performance.

Software Design Visualization

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator: Walter B. Sisson, Senior Member of Technical Staff
Award Amount: $99,988.00
Abstract:
The problems associated with analyzing large and complex software systems are well documented; it is often beyond a developer's ability to comprehend the system-level information for analysis and verification purposes. A common need is the ability to visualize the functional composition of a system… More

Software Design Visualization

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Matthew S. Wilson, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $1,689,671.00
Abstract:
The need to understand complex designs for systems is ever increasing. The opportunity exists to improve the development processes by equipping system design teams with the ability to explore the outer and inner workings of a system throughout development in a manner that is intuitive and… More

Framework for Mobile Services

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Bertram P. Chase, Senior Member of Tech. Staff
