The requirements of situational awareness, responsiveness and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Currently fielded night vision goggles intensify images in an integrated components train comprising a photo cathode, a multi-channel plate for amplification, and a phosphor screen. A purely semiconductor-based night vision device with higher performance, longer lifetime and lower cost is… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Infrared thermography has been increasingly used for the measurement of surface temperature and convective heat transfer characteristics of combustion engines. The infrared thermometry technique is particularly advantageous for resolving spatial and temporal surface temperature… more
Abstract:An ever-changing battlefield poses a growing threat of small arm hostile fire for our ground troops, ground vehicles and low-flying airborne platforms. High performance and low cost hostile fire indicator (HFI) solutions are needed to protect both stationary posts and moving military platforms.… more
Abstract:Battlefield medicine has been a critical component of any successful military campaign since ancient times. A safe, secure, wireless, high data rate communication link is highly desirable for tactical battlefield casualty management. One promising solution is the free-space optical non-line-of-sight… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project focuses on the development of a proof-of-concept ultra-portable nitrogen dioxide (NO2) sensor based on mid-infrared quantum cascade laser (QCL) spectroscopy. NO2 is a critical air pollutant which can trigger respiratory/cardiovascular disease… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop a robust, ultra-portable CO2 isotope ratio sensor. Typically, portable sensors cannot provide good sensitivity and accuracy. Sensors which do provide adequate sensitivity and accuracy are bulky, power hungry, high… more
Abstract:This application directly addresses Agriculturally-related Manufacturing Technology cross-cutting priority for USDA. The Nutrasorb technology enables manufacture of a new generation of science-based, efficacious, shelf-stable, and tasty anti-diabetic / anti-obesity functional foods; specifically,… more
Abstract:The objective of this proposed project is to refine the current cell phone multimedia outreach system so that a public health program can send customized JITMM messages to any cell phone, including the oldest cell phones in use. The Phase I project focused on troubleshooting the system and testing… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Liquid Light and Princeton University will develop an electrochemical process for syngas evolution that uses carbon dioxide and water as the feedstocks. Syngas evolved from the system will then be converted to JP-8 via existing Fischer-Tropsch systems. The syngas evolution process will be… more
Abstract:Regions in the US with wind levels suitable for producing substantial renewable energy are located in the predominantly agricultural center of the country where population density and therefore demand for electrical power are low. Transport of power from wind farms in this section of the country to… more
Abstract:In this Phase I SBIR program, we propose to utilize earlier DoD funded research in terahertz spectroscopy and imaging, image processing, feature extraction, and dynamic processing of large datasets to craft a scalable architecture for nondestructive defect analysis defect analysis of large naval… more
Abstract:Development of a fully functioning mobile location-based healthy dining locator tool called VioDine. The VioDine innovation include: 1) use of global positioning system (GPS) based mobile application to locate restaurants within proximity of the VioDine user, 2) nutrition information about the menus… more
Abstract:This proposal describes plans to enhance Viocare s Mobile Food Intake Visual and Voice Recognizer (FIVR) System. FIVR, an active Genes, Environment and Health Initiative (GEI) project, is a novel combination of innovative technologies including computer vision and speech recognition to measure… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Foresight Wireless, LLC (Foresight) proposes a novel autonomous bi-focal cross-layer routing solution, DART, to meet the Air Force"s objective, namely, to demonstrate novel IP routing protocols onboard satellites that would link user preferences and network conditions and improve… more
Abstract:The main challenges outlined in the acquisition program objectives are: 1. API abstraction is inadequate for complex architectures 2. Multi-core architectures are non-portable across hardware/OS 3. Testing and validation of concurrent code are complex and hard to model We already have a… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): It is hypothesized that the use robotic rehabilitation tables coupled with virtual reality games with elderly stroke survivors residents in skilled nursin facilities (SNFs) will: 1) improve and maintain upper extremityuni-manual and bimanual function, reach,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): It is hypothesized that it is possible to use virtual reality such that it simultaneously: 1) provides non-medication analgesia for women with chronic shoulder pain following breast surgery; 2) improves their upper extremity strength/range of movement; and 3)… more
Abstract:Advanced manufacturing companies require significant decision-making support to schedule their day-to-day operations. However, there is a significant weakness in todays Optimization-based approaches to scheduling, in that they often suffer from the curse of dimensionality in cases where 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.
