Abstract:SOF tactical users lack a miniature threat warning receiver that permits them to monitor RF energy and exploit hostile wireless communications while on extended deployments that necessitate very low power budgets. Having this capability will save lives and enhance the probability of successful… more
Abstract:The Army has developed systems for Sense-Through-The-Wall (STTW) intelligence collection, and while they are effective in many scenarios, these current technologies have capability shortcomings and characteristics that limit their usefulness in many applications. These shortcomings include… more
Abstract:Wireless communication signals can be used to detect human vital signs by measuring the Doppler shift of the returning signal. It is possible to use ambient wireless signals in the environment such as from cordless and mobile phones as a microwave Doppler radar to remotely and accurately measure an… more
Abstract:This Phase II proposal presents the design and development approach for a handheld tactical STTW radar system for intelligence collection. Phase I research yielded a viable path of development that will culminate in the delivery of a working prototype device that will be capable of determining… more
Abstract:In response to Army topic A052-080-1968, Oceanit Laboratories proposes the Hostile Fire Detection System (HFDS), which will detect attacks from close range weapons and locate enemy combatants. HFDS will utilize optical sensing techniques that combine temporal metrics with spectral intensity. A… more
Abstract:The current project aims to demonstrate the feasibility of a compact, powerful, power-efficient lidar unit for wind profiling on board UAV's and other aircraft. The system leverages Oceanit's current development efforts building an eye-safe lidar for minute aerosol detection. A unique design… more
Abstract:The work proposed for Phase II of this ONR SBIR effort is in support of a preliminary design of an OTEC system to supply base load electric power, potable water and chilled water air conditioning to NSF Diego Garcia, B.I.O.T. The objective of the preliminary design is to be the basis of a reliable… more
Abstract:Open-ocean aquaculture businesses are proving commercially successful. There are several refinements this technology must undergo in order to maximize productivity. One of the specific areas of refinement is in gathering detailed statistical knowledge of the captive fish stock population as a… more
Abstract:This project investigates the feasibility of producing high value ornamental reef fish that have not been raised before, and reducing the cost to farm these fish. The market for ornamental reef fish is very large, but that market is supplied primarily by wild fish captured from tropical reefs.… more
Abstract:RMSI proposes to build FT-PDA---a personal digital assistant (PDA) for flight test data collection, display, analysis and report test generation in real time. Additionally, FT-PDA will provide maneuver quality assessment and make recommendations in real-time to fly more efficient test profiles… more
Abstract:The objective of this proposal is to convert the research and development carried out in Phase I into a solution that "wraps" a multi-student scenario-driven training system inside a user interface that simulates common command and control (C2) systems.
Abstract:Referentia Systems Incorporated proposes a new and unique technology for real-time all-weather combat identification. The SBIR solicitation suggested a feature-based solution, but our technology delivers superior performance because it is not feature-based. Instead of using templates, and instead… more
Abstract:Hyperspectral and multi-spectral sensors are assuming a greater role in all aspects of military surveillance and intelligence. While many excellent packages exist for analyzing this data, there has been minimal progress made towards the development of techniques that focus on supporting/aiding the… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to develop a new Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) detector system, which will measure signals over seven orders of magnitude with a digitization resolution of better than 1 percent (from a single laser pulse). The detector… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase II project proposes to add telemetry and monitoring equipment to the spar designed and constructed under our Phase I contract. Furthermore, we propose to test and evaluate an automated spar feeding system suitable for use on an operating offshore fish farm. C Cates International,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall goal of this project is the development of a fully automated, wireless ethernet capable, near realtime, field deployable immunoassay-based analysis system for the concurrent, ultra low-level detection of biowarfare agents in air or water by using… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): West Nile virus infection is an emerging infectious disease in the United States. The virus infects birds, which serve as the natural reservoir for the virus, in addition to humans and horses which are incidental hosts. It is an arthropod-borne virus, being… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is a neurological disease caused by Flaviviruses of the tick-borne encephalitis group and causes death in up to 60% of the individuals developing clinical symptoms. Survivors often show severe long-term neurological sequelae. In… more
Abstract:The problem being studied in the present proposal is how to bring a village that had been decimated by the loss of its major employer back to the vibrant town it was during the heyday of "King Cane". Can a single business make up for the lack of jobs and opportunities in a small Hawai`i town that… more
Abstract:In the United States, a small but profitable shrimp farming industry is located along the Gulf Coast of Texas with a few coastal farms in South Carolina and Hawaii. Because coastal lands in the U.S. are extremely expensive and highly regulated, expansion of the U.S. shrimp industry along the coasts… 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.
