A complementary technology to electrical stimulation (ES), INS has been used in the cochlea, vestibular system,… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The technological capacity to gather raw sensor data has far exceeded our capacity to exploit and understand it. There are neither enough people available nor intelligent computer algorithms developed to process all incoming sensor data in real-time. To address this problem, Team… more
Abstract:Army small unit leaders face complex tradeoffs when selecting equipment and routes for a mission. Mnemonics such METT-TC and OAKOC summarize many of the factors that soldiers consider, but quickly and comprehensively analyzing these elements is challenging. That is where Primordial"s flagship… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project seeks to motivate middle-school students to engage in science. Specifically, many students lack interest in environmental education, due largely to the increased time they spend indoors engaging in digital media. Through the development… more
Abstract:The main challenges of treating post-combatant PTSD include getting patients into treatment, keeping them engaged, and motivating them to complete out-of-session take-home work. SAGA (Sequential Art via Game Assistance) addresses these challenges by providing PTSD patients an engaging and… more
Abstract:From a provider perspective, the effective and evidence-based treatment of post-deployment psycho-logical health issues is time intensive and costly. For the patient, therapy is hard work and successful recovery is dependent on motivation and social support. CALM - Customized Anger Level Manage-ment… more
Abstract:The proposed ADEPT technology combines the science of cognitive psychology with centuries of magicians'practical performance experience to create a new science of deception for computer security. The ADEPT approach learns about the motives and real-world attributes of people by analyzing… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: SIFT proposes to design D-HAMMER a real-time autonomous on-board constraint- and model-based planning system to meet the challenges of fielding responsive, survivable, and cost-effective on-board autonomy for Air Force satellites. D-HAMMER is a three layer on-board autonomy… more
Abstract:SVT Associates proposes an novel type II superlattice structure to extend the cutoff wavelength and CBIRD SL photo diode structure with unipolar barriers to suppress dark current of SL detectors grown on GaSb substrate. This InAs/GaSb superlattice material system is capable of infrared detection in… more
Abstract:Recently, resonant-tunneling-diode (RTD) based circuits employing monolithically-integrated RTD on high electron mobility (HEMT) structures have been developed in a number of III-V systems in order to improve operational speed. The main goal of this program is to develop wide temperature-operable… more
Abstract:Photocathodes with spin-polarized electron emission are used in physics research. Current photocathodes offer high polarization, but low total currents, and have limited lifetime. Research involving these polarized electrons would be more productive if a higher electron current were provided. This… more
Abstract:For several decades photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) have been the main technology for sensitive and low noise detection of photons in many high energy physics experiments.

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.
