Abstract:ABSTRACT: SeaLandAire Technologies and its team member CH Robotics propose to develop a 14 lb gliding vehicle capable of delivering a 20 lb payload. The vehicle will utilize a tandem wing arrangement. During transport, wings and stabilizers will be stored inside the glider, which will be designed… more
Abstract:An on-going need exists for a small lightweight Autonomous Underwater Vehicle capable of traversing, mapping and reporting data for shallow or remote waterways with difficult access. This bathymetry information must be referenced to above-water features such as obstructions, embankments, or waterway… more
Abstract:Towed arrays are used extensively in the US Navy by both submarines and surface ships. Although present arrays are technologically advanced they are expensive to procure and operate. Significant cost reduction would be a major benefit. One of the primary cost drivers of the towed array is the… more
Abstract:Traditional tradeoff methodologies have not permitted an easy, efficient and analytically-based means for trading between traditional survivability areas and other selected non-traditional survivability technology functional areas such as lethality, mobility, situational awareness, blast mitigation… more
Abstract:This project builds upon on previous work on a theory-based tool that assesses and trains children with autism spectrum disorders social information processing (SIP) skills. This system, the virtual environment for social information processing (VESIP), is a significant improvement over existing… more
Abstract:Intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs) hold the promise of dramatically increasing the cost effectiveness of training. However, one contributor to the per-lesson cost effectiveness of ITSs is the significant effort that goes into creating instructional material. ITSs in many ways shift the costs of… more
Abstract:Current conflicts increasingly require the military to win the support the local population and this starts by understanding their environment and building relationships with them. In this proposal, the team of SoarTech, Vcom3D and Proxima Intercultural propose a novel training architecture in… more
Abstract:The potential for force multiplication in Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UASs) rises with the degree to which they can be"neglected"by human controllers and operators. There is currently a great deal of human cognitive attention required to manage UAS assets safely and effectively,… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Demand for Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) within the U.S. Military has significantly increased over the past decade, including a demand for Micro-Air Vehicles (MAVs). However, the increased use of these systems has been hindered by the lack of natural interfaces for controlling them.… more
Abstract:Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) currently deployed on the battlefield are driven with Operator Control Units (e.g., joystick or point-and-click interface), which requires the full attention of an operator. This means the operator cannot concentrate on maintaining situational awareness, security, or… more
Abstract:Current Unmanned Air Systems (UAS) require a great deal of specialized training and experience to use effectively. Furthermore, their use is dominated by a paradigm of control in which a highly trained operator is giving very precise, low-level commands to a UAS. As UAS become more autonomous, they… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Red Flag is a multinational exercise featuring aerial combat flight operations. Due to the complexity and scope of these exercises, participants require a significant amount of spin-up in advance of their arrival. Specifically, there are a number of logistical and safety related that a… more
Abstract:Army helicopter pilots are inundated with information in the cockpit, and more is coming. But simply providing more information is not always the answer. With new technology constantly pushing more information into the cockpit, there is an ever-increasing demand for smarter management of that… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of the proposed program is to address several technical feasibility questions (in Phase I), and then demonstrate (in a subsequent Phase II) a safe, compact patch-like monitoring device for directly measuring blood flow to the brain in very low birth… more
Abstract:Production of cement (the binder in concrete) is a highly polluting and energy-intensive process, accounting for about 6% of global, anthropogenic C02 emissions and close to 2% of worldwide primary energy use. This project focuses on partial (~20%) replacement of cement in concrete with milled… more
Abstract:Shipboard structures can benefit from the relatively high performance-to-weight ratio, fatigue life, durability, processability and multi-functionality of polymer composites (versus metals). The fire, smoke and toxicity (FST) performance and the initial economics of composites, however, cannot match… more
Abstract:The perchlorate generated over decades has impacted our nation's waters; it is environmentally recalcitrant and potentially toxic. Perchlorate has significant effects on irrigated agriculture; it is detected in vegetables and dairy food products. Perchlorate has emerged as a significant threat… more
Abstract:Various methods for increasing seat belt usage have been investigated over the last several years including visual and audible warnings currently installed in today’s vehicles. In spite of these attempts, FMCSA research has shown that drivers of about 59% of commercial motor vehicles (those… more
Abstract:Automated, rapid, non-destructive inspection of large scale composite structures is an ongoing challenge for just about every NDI technology currently deployed in the aerospace, power generation, wind energy, and automotive industries. Both hardware and software limitations have dictated the level… more
Abstract:Marine phytoplankton are critical in sustaining life on Earth. They are key drivers of the global biogeochemical cycles of carbon and other nutrients, and account for 50% of global photosynthesis. Phytoplankton growth is the fundamental component of the 'ocean biological pump'Â? one of… more
Abstract:Rotorcrafts form a unique subset of air vehicles in that a rotorcraft's propulsion system is used not only for propulsion, but it also serves as the primary source of lift and maneuvering of the vehicle. No other air vehicle relies on the propulsion system to provide these functions through a… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The goal of this program is to develop an atom chip with a dual integrated and miniaturized optical and electromagnetic capability. We intend to develop a compact atom-chip-based system capable of producing and optically controlling and monitoring ultracold atoms with substantial… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Virally-encoded neuraminidase plays a key role in the life-cycle of the influenza virus. A class of anti-influenza drugs that inhibits the action of neuraminidase has garnered increasing interest in the pharmaceutical industry due to their selectivity and potency… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Our team will develop a method for applying exact controlled amounts of highly viscous Liquid Shim material within established Production process specifications for aircraft structure through an automated direct mixing/dispensing application tool. Currently, liquid shim is applied using… 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.
