Abstract:Several concerns currently inflate the time and cost of integrating heterogeneous data resources and impose a barrier to superior knowledge of the urban battlespace: global data standards cannot be imposed across all enterprises' schemas, specialized expertise is required to map new data sources… more
Abstract:Several geo-social inference concerns currently limit military stability and reconstruction operations: Contact lists are not centrally coordinated, up to date, complete, or easily searchable Vendor history is not maintained or combined with culture and safety information Hand-off and… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to advance the cast-on technology for the metal casting industry to produce lightweight metal composite castings. Cast-on method is a cost effective method for the reinforcement of casting with dissimilar metals but suffers from… more
Abstract:DoD agencies are facing growing challenge of maintaining aging Warfighter Systems, while reducing procurement costs of discrete-parts. One key hindrance to ensuring readiness is discrete part procurement. When procuring parts, tech data package which is provided to the suppliers during pre and… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project proposes to design, develop and conduct usability and feasibility testing on Astro-Engineer, a problem-based, commercial quality serious game module with embedded scaffolds to interest and engage middle school (7th and 8th… more
Abstract:This proposal will reduce certification costs due to the ability to partition low-criticality tasks and automate the generation of some certification artifacts using compiler techniques. By using Safety Critical Java as the source language, time and space partitioning will not entail expensive… more
Abstract:The impact of metal whiskers on the reliability of electronics has been exacerbated by environmentally-driven efforts to eliminate lead from tin plating and solders. Even exempt applications, such as military, are affected due to COTS. Foresite, Inc., a consultant, laboratory and test equipment… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The rate of drug development is disappointingly slow, in part because of the failure of preclinical drug studies to elucidate the mechanisms of drug actions. INphoton has demonstrated that intravital microscopy can be used as a powerful tool in preclinical drug… 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.
