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
Abstract:Virtual reality-based training systems are becoming a reality. Significant advances in photo-realistic image rendering has made reasonably priced high performance computer generated visuals commonplace. While development of the visual aspect of a virtual world is a significant artistic enterprise,… more
Abstract:We proposal the development of a protable, wireless, addressable device for simultaneously monitoring the physiological status of remotely located patients. The development of this device will facilitate more cost effective medical care, and as such promises to revolutionize the delivery of medicine… more
Abstract:For the Phase I effort we plan to investigate two potential mutispectral sensor solutions a 3 color reticle system and 2 color imaging system. Each of these sensor soncepts will be analytically modeled and evaluated against the best set of target and background data that is available. This process… more
Abstract:In the Phase I effort, we will implement a three level modeling approach to provide the basis for an optimized multi-sensor design. The three levels include performance, cost and power. the organization of each level will include provisions for the sensor, processor, transmission and display. the… more

Abstract:In this project, we will develop cost-effective, environmentally benign architectural roof coatings derived from agricultural products. Each year more than 5 billion pounds of material are used for roof coatings leading to the emission of more than 2.5 billion pounds of volatile organic compounds… 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.
