Abstract:Innovations Plus seeks to dramatically reduce hearing damage associated with small arms fire in the USMC. Noise induced hearing loss is on the rise for U.S. servicemen and women. In 2004, the VBA paid out more than $400 million for service related auditory disabilities. Scientific methods and… more
Abstract:As technologies utilizing THz radiation (light) are developed, the optical properties for many materials need to be determined accurately as a function of frequency. In a security screening system, measured optical properties might be used to distinguish, independent of shape, between threat and… more
Abstract:A closed-path, methane and water vapor gas analyzer is required to support the widespread deployment that is needed to achieve a better understanding of the global methane budget and to quantify exchanges between the atmosphere and terrestrial biosphere. The analyzer must be robust, portable,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): LNK Chemsolutions LLC collaborates with researchers from the University of Chicago to develop nanocapsule technology for enhanced delivery to gliomas. Preliminary results are particularly encouraging in that the nanocap
sules display very good transport in… more
Abstract:As Joint Strike Fighter nears production and the existing aging aerospace fleet faces challenges in spares procurement, state of the art manufacturing technology must be developed to satisfy cost, performance and delivery requirements. Royal Plastic Mfg. has been researching Laser Sintering (LS) of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is a huge disparity between the number of patients who need a transplant and the available organ donors. Pigs could readily resolve the unmet need. The physiology of many tissues is close to that of humans. They c
an be raised in clean controlled conditions… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Transplantation of human has proved to be most beneficial for patients with end stage organ failure or loss of critical cells. For example, the transplantation of islets from human cadaveric donors has reversed type 1
diabetes for many recipients, making them… more
Abstract:Our adversaries understand the need to limit their exposure time to preying USAF eyes. The enemy hides, exposes only during the briefest of time and then hides again. As the enemy adapts to our technology and finds methods to minimize their exposure, the F2T2EA process had to be compressed from… more
Abstract:The recent outbreak of E. coli only served to remind us of the vulnerability of our food production. It stirred memories of an amateur bio-terror attack using salmonella in local salad bars in an attempt to influence a local election in Oregon. In handling any bio-terrorism event, there are two… more
Abstract:Information overload and cluttered user interfaces cause decreased situational awareness and lowered performance of the human operators. Irrelevant data increases searching times for tasks requiring the identification of threats, causing delayed decisions. Cognitive burden on the user increases as… more
Abstract:Software Agents and Agent Systems are making their way from the university research labs to the mainstream industrial and government markets. We are witnessing a revolutionary change in the computing environments as legacy stove-piped systems are giving way to flexible customizable multi-agent… more
Abstract:There are many challenges in addressing the problem of Political Will. The first is developing a clear, complete, consensual definition of Political Will driven by both theory and field practice. But a larger challenge is deconstructing and unpacking the Political Science and Social Science concept… more
Abstract:In today's complex, multi-dimensional, coalition, effects-based campaigns; commanders must be able to "see" the situation in their decision making tasks. The modern fighting force is privy to an enormous array of intelligence gathering, database, and sensor sources of information to the point of… more
Abstract:We currently have thousands of security cameras in the war zone. Automated Target Recognition (ATR) is essential for reducing the manpower required for monitoring the security cameras. Having human operators staring at video screens for hours at a time is not an effective use of our forces. ATR is a… more
Abstract:"This project addresses the USDA request for innovative application of information
technology to convey important nutritional information and awareness of health issues
and provide community based interventions to advance healthy lifestyles at work, at
school, at home, and at play or leisure. We… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Fluorescent molecules that are positioned in close proximity to silver nanoparticles produce increased fluorescence intensity along with increased photostability and decreased lifetimes. These silver structures have bee
n studied in great detail for their ability… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Eukaryotic expression vectors are utilized for various biomedical applications including protein production, gene therapy and gene vaccination. A key barrier is that expression vectors undergo promoter inactivation (sil
encing) over time. This lack of sustained… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): DNA-only vaccination would significantly enhance the rapid deployment utility of DNA vaccines for pandemic application (development times for DNA vaccines are significantly shorter than those for protein or viral vector
systems). The overall goal of this project… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In the 62 million companion dog population in the United States, there has been a three-fold increase in diabetes mellitus (DM) over the last 30 years. In dogs, DM is characterized by the rapid onset of bilateral sugar
cataracts which often result in vision loss… more
Abstract:As demonstrated with recent engagements, US forces will not go into combat alone. Multinational coalition forces will be the norm and our forces must flexibly adapt to the command and control (C2) environment with the newly formed team. Whether a neighbor or long time ally with similar but… more
Abstract:The capability to gather, analyze, and integrate vast amounts of information from diverse resources in various types and formats, and to distill valuable and actionable intelligence leads from them has become a top priority for U.S. military commanders. 21st Century Systems, Inc. is pleased to… more
Abstract:The Navy has issued a challenge to develop an interactive simulation environment that will model tactical and environmental entities in real time and enable goal-directed scenario generation. This will serve the needs of a myriad of applications, such as system integration, testing, certification,… 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.
