Abstract:The identification of a requirement for an advanced, user friendly high speed, short exposure (50-100nsec) electronic CCD Camera system to improve and further the investigation of thermal spray methods through detailed and accurate analysis encourages and accelerates the opportunity to develop a… more
Abstract:Acceptance of composites for aircraft is limited by manufacturing and repair costs. The lack of joining techniques tend to force composite aircraft designs into unified stress-flow structures. Unified structures preclude the economies and safety of component replacement that is the aircraft… more
Abstract:The performance of Air Force technicians is essential to the logistics mission. Their performance will soon be augmented by wearable PCs. Peripherals such as CD-ROM, head-mounted displays (HMD), voice command, and wireless may support some tasks and stifle others. Human factors research is needed… more
Abstract:Tactical wheeled vehicles represent a prominent portion of the Army's budget for both acquisition and operating costs. TACOM has identified suspension lubrication as a mission critical area for improvement. The goal is to lubricate a vehicle's suspension continuously for two years. This should… more
Abstract:Thermal Wave Imaging, Inc. will study the feasibility of a handheld device for quantitative identification and measurement of hidden corrosion, using pulsed thermography. The device will be capable of field operation under battery power, and in confined spaces where physical access to the sample… more
Abstract:As the field has developed, three primary methods for performing IR Nondestructive Inspection (NDI) have emerged, each employing a different mode of excitation (pulsed, stepped, lock-in) of the sample. Researchers have demonstrated impressive results on a wide variety of materials using all … more
Abstract:Two small businesses, ThermoAnalytics (prime contractor) and Aerodyne Research (subcontractor) , propose to collaborate on a major integration of signature codes. Government agencies have been sponsoring independent signature code development programs for several years resulting in very specialized… more
Abstract:Gliomas are the most common primary intracranial brain tumors and are thought to arise as a neoplastransformation of glial cells in the central nervous system. The prognosis for the disease is poor.surgical resection of the tumor followed by radiation or chemotherapy. This application describes… more
Abstract:Computational vision models (CVM) of the pre-cognitive, retino-cortical "front end" stages of human vision have demonstrated successfully explained visual performance for simple visual tasks with simple stimuli. However, extending these models to predict or simulate human visual performance for… more

Abstract:Despite improvements in alloying and processing, the oxidation resistance of titanium and titanium aluminide alloys is one of the major factors limiting their use in advanced propulsion equipment. In addition, there are certain applications for these alloys that would benefit from improved erosion… more
Abstract:The small spacecraft power system proposed in this program provides significant advantages over state-of-the-art systems including: (1) use of a high efficiency (25%-35%) AMTEC, static power conversion system, (2) reduced planform area, and vulnerability, (3) mass efficient phase change material for… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project envisages new biodegradable, water-soluble films produced from blends of pectin and starch for commercial applications. The proposed research focuses on developing films by melt extrusion of plasticized blends of pectin and starch. The… more
Abstract:Many man-machine interface features of the modern unmanned ground vehicle control station require sophisiticated trade-offs be made. For instance, the need to transmit video information from a vehicle for teleoperation greatly exceeds the current capability of military radios to transmit this… more
Abstract:We propose developing a virtual reality environment for the testing of real and virtual equipment. The proposed testbed will leverage Cybernet's experience in building high performance robotic tactile feedback devices, combined with head-mount graphics generation and 3D-audio, to provide a standard… more
Abstract:This proposal advocates the development of perception-based image rendering techniques for virtual reality and simulation applications. These techniques will enable the Army to better understand and evaluate the operational capabilities of vision based task performance. The proposed development… 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.
