Abstract:ABSTRACT: Voss Scientific proposes to develop an Automated Susceptibility Test Assembly (ASTA) which will be capable of efficiently determining preferred electromagnetic (EM) source waveforms for inducing effects in target electronic systems. This novel adaptive approach will potentially discover… more
Abstract:We propose a self-organized chaotic attractor based CMOS/Memristor circuit framework called Self-Evolvable-Logic-Fabric (SELF) for autonomous motor control. We propose to demonstrate SELF's ability to spontaneously evolve algorithmic pathways to control a robotic arm to catch a ball utilizing… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: We propose an elegant network-building algorithm for sense-making applications capable of learning the spatial-temporal structure of applied input data. Through a combination of synaptic and structural plasticity our networks will dissect vast quantities of streaming information down to… more
Abstract:High Energy Laser Weapons Systems (HELWS) have reached a sufficient level of maturity such that significant consideration of their integration into the existing force structure and command and control requirements must be accomplished before HELWS can be deployed to the battlefield. Toward this end… more
Abstract:We propose a comprehensive numerical-simulation study of several techniques that promise to reduce the impact of thermal blooming on the energy deposition that is achievable with a high-energy laser in a near-sea-level maritime environment.
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Caldera Pharmaceuticals proposes to develop physiologic biomarkers requested by the US Air Force to quantify workplace exposure to hexavalent chrome (Cr+6). Exposure to Cr+6 is dangerous and unwanted, because it is a primary carcinogen (class 1 International Agency for Research on Cancer… more
Abstract:Center pivot irrigation systems are widespread across the Nation's critically water short regions. A common bias for irrigators is to give crops more water than is actually needed in order to cover uncertainties and ensure enough water is present. This practice leads to profound waste of water… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The annual healthcare costs of heavy drinking in the U.S. are estimated to be 24.6 billion (Bouchery et al., 2011). Effectively intervening with hazardous, risky, and problem drinkers would reduce both their morbidityand their healthcare costs. One way to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Preterm infants (lt 37 weeks gestation) have difficulty with oral feeding due to immature suck, swallow, respiration, and low endurance. As the ability to feed by mouth is a criterion for hospital discharge, it is oftendelayed, leading to increased medical cost,… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: TechFlow Scientific, a division of TechFlow Inc., along with its teaming partner, the University of New Mexico, is pleased to propose a three-phased research and development effort for the design, development, fabrication, and testing of miniaturized functional cellular elements that can… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: TechFlow Scientific, a division of TechFlow Inc., is pleased to propose a hardware-accelerated computational electromagnetic software program in response to the Air Force"s SBIR topic AF112-025. Recognizing the need for an accurate, quick running software program for calculating… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Situational Awareness (SA) for the country"s nuclear arsenal currently relies on manual processes for correlation and compilation of disparate data sources. The Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center (AFNWC) Sustainment and Integration Center (STIC) needs automation in correlating data… more
Abstract:The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of developing novel air-to-air targeting algorithms that address many existing challenges based on state-of-the-art model-based engineering technologies.

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.
