Abstract:To solve the problem of autonomous navigation on small satellite platforms less than 20 kg, we propose to develop an onboard orbit determination receiver for small LEO satellites which lack stable Attitude Determination and Control System (ADCS), continuous GPS coverage, or ground tracking. The… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: A holistic RSO space situational awareness algorithm will be developed that integrates Finite Set Statistics (FISST) with Hiearchical Mixtures of Experts (HME) and Multiple Model Adaptive Estimation (MMAE). Advanced orbit determination filters such as Splitting Gaussian Mixture Unscented… more
Abstract:Simulations that connect to testbeds are frequently used in space operations testing. Many of these testbeds have characteristics that are desirable to others in the field, but they are geographically distributed across the nation. The ability to connect multiple, remote testbeds to a single core… more
Abstract:There are many data intensive mission payloads for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) that collect more data than is practical to transmit through the downlink. The ability to autonomously process and classify this data on board can significantly reduce the downlink bandwidth… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The main objective of this task is to demonstrate that multiple systems with assorted architectures within the DoD can share data to better enable Warfighter Tasking. As opposed to manually transferring data products through high latency means like Microsoft PowerPoint or Word documents… more
Abstract:This research considers combinations of emerging technologies to provide an advanced warhead to be used in a C-RAM role. The warhead is used as a counter measure to attack and detonate incoming mortar rounds at safe distance from friendly troops. The warhead produces enhanced blast waves of such… more
Abstract:This project involves research and development of an instrument capable of rapidly distinguishing between counterfeit and authentic semiconductor components. A side benefit is that it can also identify failed semiconductors. Non-contact measurement techniques are used to acquire electromagnetic… more
Abstract:A prototype integrated data registration solution using machine learning algorithm(s) is proposed. The solution will improve upon existing sensor and data registration solutions by implementing internal models capable of adapting to highly variable operating environments. The prototype will… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There are well over 100,000 people living with upper limb loss in the United States today and 1 in 12 new amputations are of the upper limb. The loss of an upper limb is devastating to a person's quality of life, theirwork productivity and it bring about… more
Abstract:We propose developing high energy density, non-toxic, environmentally friendly zinc-water battery system, which can be manufactured in various form factors including flexible cells, based on novel metal hydrated ruthenium (IV) oxide chemistry. The cells are flexible and have a low recharge voltage.… more
Abstract:Deployed military medics and non-medic soldiers on the battlefield may be required to manage junctional and noncompressible hemorrhage. Devices such as the Combat Ready Clamp (CRoC) and abdominal aortic tourniquet have recently been developed and deployed to meet this requirement. There are… more
Abstract:There is a need to accelerate the integration of advanced sensor technology into synthetic mannequins in order to facilitate objective measurement of user metrics during training and education activities. Although synthetic mannequins have become a common tool for medical training and education,… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to addresses the need for improved science literacy and knowledge of young deaf children by producing an e-book series on STEM topics with American Sign Language (ASL) translations. Each e-book will focus on a specific topic and… 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.
