Abstract:Typically, operator interaction with mobile robots has been via standard mouse and keyboard entry using computer workstations. While this suffices for laboratory experiments, it is unmanageable for field deployment of robotics. This is especially true when the operator, and thus the operator… more
Abstract:This proposal is for a feasibility study to develop an interface system capable of presenting data from multiple sources and of varying types to operator in an easy, clear and unambiguous manner. The proposed standar interface system will be based on the Multi-dimensional, User-oriented Synthetic… more
Abstract:We propose a standard software system that enables a natural, intuitive interface between computer operators and their data, for improving and increasing the capability of Air Force C4I systems. Specifically, the tasks addressed here are: (1) multi-dimensional map displays for interactive planning… more
Abstract:Research shows that only 30% of 4th and 8th grade students are at a level deemed proficient in reading and literacy. Learning to read in the primary and early elementary grades is one of the most important developmental tasks needed to survive and flourish in our society. Muse Technologies… more
Abstract:M-Vision Inc., along with the University of Michigan and Michigan State University, proposes to develop a new and novel solution to the problem of target detection and discrimination in a complex scene. This solution is obtained by innovatively combining Gabor wavelets and scale space inference. … more
Abstract:Materials intended for rocket motor casing must offer excellent thermal stability, good mechanical properties, high char yields, superior ablation resistance during operation to eliminate case rupture. Out standing bonding of the propellant to the casing and/or insulating interphase to eliminate… more
Abstract:Ceramic/ceramic composites are high performance structural elements in many military and commercial applications. Cost-effective methods of producing mechanically strong bonds between ceramic composite components during fabrication of complex shapes are critical to achieving next generation… more
Abstract:The demand for natural flavors is increasing both in America and Europe. This project will optimizean innovative technique to recover benzaldehyde (natural cherry flavor) from cherry pit hydrolyzate.The concept is based on the hydrolysis of crushed cherry pits, adsorption of benzaldehyde… more
Abstract:The concept of using high-density body centered cubic (bcc) tantalum metal for explosively formed penetrators (EFP) continues to receive considerable interest in the defense community, in spite of variations in metal composition and properties. Alloying with a sufficient amount of tungsten (such as… more
Abstract:The ability of either a human observer or an automated sensor to recognize a target in an infrared scene depends both on the target and clutter content of the infrared scene. Metrics have been developed to quantify the difference between the target and its background, to be used as independent… more
Abstract:Here OptiMetrics Inc. proposes to develop an Information Architecture for the simulation of intelligence information, processes and sensors that are the components of C3I systems. That Information Architecture (IA) builds on the concepts of High Level Architecture (HLA) for DIS. It would provide… more
Abstract:OptiMetrics, Inc. proposes to develop real-time monitoring and after action review tools specifically designed to function in advanced HLA simulation environments. The development approach will include: Tailoring tools to user requirements; A highly object-oriented design; A layered design to… more
Abstract:Marek's disease vaccines are the most widely used vaccines in the poultry industry. Since there are nosustainable cell lines suitable for propagating Marek's disease virus (MDV), the MDV vaccine industryuses primary chicken embryo fibroblasts (CEF) for production of vaccine virus. CEFs constitute… more
Abstract:We propose to design, develop, and build the critical transmitter and receiver modules for a new class of spectroscopic systems that will operate in the 0.1-10 THz regime (3-333cm*-1 wavenumbers). This has traditionally been a very difficult spectral regime to access due to the lack of good sources… more
Abstract:We propose to fabricate and characterize a new, freely-positionable voltage probe that has 2-ps temporal resolution and 200-nm spatial resolution. This probe will retrofit into a conventional scanning force microscope (SFM) environment. It will operate in imaging mode with the same functionality… more
Abstract:The cost of using massive census and survey data in terms of dollars, time, technical skills, and sexpertise usually limits use at the present time to a few well supported research centers. Hence themany potential users are not benefiting from these public resources. Creation of an… more

Abstract:Diffraction and non-ideal sampling severely limit the spatial resolution of an imaging seeker. The diffraction limit is imposed by both the nominal wavelength and the physical size of the optics, typically limited by the submunition body diameter for a passive millimeter wave imaging seeker. … more
Abstract:Clutter metrics we important image measures for evaluating the expected perfomance of sensors and detection algorithms. Typically, clutter metrics attempt to measure the degree in which background objects resemble targets. That is, the more Target-like objects in the background the higher the… 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.
