Abstract:Certain ferro-magnetic (F/M) materials expand and/or contract in the presence of an electrical current or field. This program proposes basic and applied research to use this material property as the working medium to achieve quantum improvements in the performance of miniature actuators. Using this… more
Abstract:ENGINE ELECTRIC HIGH-SPEED MAGNETOSTRICTIVE MATERIAL LONG-LIFE PROPULSION RESEARCH INC WILL DEVELOP AN ULTRA-EFFICIENT, HIGH POWER LOW WEIGHT COMPACT ELECTRIC ENGINE USING A REVOLUTIONARY PHYSICAL CONCEPT. IT WILL ALLOW THE CREATION OF ELECTRIC POWERED ENGINES FOR USES IN EVERYTHING FROM… more
Abstract:Protos Technology proposes to develop a novel digital controller for a flight-weight magnetic bearing system for future integration with a man-rated turbojet engine. The digital controller includes an innovative technique for sensing shaft position that permits a reduction in size and complexity,… more
Abstract:This proposal describes the significance of the combat identification problem, how EW plays a role, the state of current EW ID, followed by five technical objectivesfor this effort which would lead to improved EW ID: (1) technique development, (2) technical analysis of the technique, (3) technique… more
Abstract:OBJECTIVE: Develop and demonstrate a microwave ( 0.5-20 GHZ) frequency synthesizer design with improved performance and low cost. EFFORT: The design will be based on what we call "parallel signal processing synthesis" (PSPS). This concept uses a Ditial Synthesizer (DDS), direct synthesis step… more
Abstract:ALTHOUGH TECHNOLOGY IS AVAILABLE FOR ALL AIRCRAFT TO EQUIP WITH TCAS, GENERAL AVIATION (GA) IS NOT EAGER TO EQUIP FOR ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL REASONS. CURRENT SYSTEMS ARE SIMPLY TOO EXPENSIVE FOR GA, AND GA OPPOSES ANYTHING REMINISCENT OF "BIG BROTHER" TRACKING MOVEMENTS THROUGH TERMINAL AREAS. THE… more
Abstract:1Digital map background displays would be easier to use if key text were rotated so that it is always read right side up regardless of the orientation of the map. This could be accomplished in a pure raster form, where the raster text is identified extracted, and rotated, by converting the raster… more
Abstract:This Phase I SBIR proposal exploits RTA's recent development of nonlinear dynamics (NLD^based^ g)rocess3ng methodologies to the problem of noise reduction and signal processing in general. RTA will analyze proprietary techniques and advances in the open literature, to identify areas of NLD-based… more
Abstract:RECENT SURVEYS SUGGEST THAT STUDENTS HAVE TROUBLE APPLYING MATHEMATICAL AND SCIENTIFIC PROCEDURES TO PRACTICAL PROBLEMS. WHAT APPEAR TO BE LACKING ARE A CAUSAL UNDERSTAND OF THE UNDERLYING PRINCIPLES BEHIND THESE PROCEDURES AND LINKAGES BETWEEN ABSTRACT FORMULAS AND CONCRETE EVERYDAY KNOWLEDGE. THIS… more
Abstract:INTELLIGENT TUTORING SYSTEMS SHOW PROMISE FOR IMPROVING THE EFFICIENCY OF TEACHING BY TAILORING INSTRUCTION TO EACH STUDENT'S NEEDS. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH REPRESENTS TWO INNOVATIONS OVER CURRENT INTELLIGENT TUTORING METHODOLOGY. THE FIRST INNOVATION IS INTEREST-BASED TUTORING. INSTRUCTION WILL BE… more
Abstract:DOMAIN ANALYSIS (DA) HOLDS THE KEY FOR A SYSTEMATIC, FORMAL, AND EFFECTIVE PRACTICE OF SOFTWARE REUSE. PROPOSED APPROACHES AND METHODS FOR DA ASSUME THAT DOMAIN KNOWLEDGE EXISTS AND IS READILY USABLE. EXPERIENCE INDICATES, HOWEVER, THAT ACQUIRING AND STRUCTURING KNOWLEDGE IS THE BOTTLENECK OF DA. A… more
Abstract:Reusable software requiremetns offer significant potential for rapidly producing high quality software systems within many application domains. This is particularly the case in application domains where many variations of similar systems are generated. Command and control systems, such as those in… more
Abstract:A STRUCTURED APPROACH TO THE LSA PROCESS IS NEEDED TO HELP NAVSEA MANAGERS PLAN AND DEVELOP LIFE CYCLE LOGISTIC SUPPORT FOR SHIPS, WEAPON SYSTEMS AND EQUIPMENTS. THE CALS INITIATIVE, WHICH ESTABLISHES STANDARDS TO COLLECT TECHNICAL DATA IN DIGITAL FORM, PROVIDES A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO STREALINE THE… more
Abstract:THE EXTRAORDINARY POLITICAL CHANGES SINCE 1989 HAVE LED TO ABRUPT AND FUNDAMENTAL CHANGES IN THE NATIONAL MILITARY STRATEGY OF THE UNITED STATES, WHICH IN TURN HAVE TOTALLY ALTERED THE FOCUS AND SUBSTANCE OF FORCE PLANNING TOWARD REGIONAL CONFLICT. IN ADDITION, THE CHANGED ACQUISITION PROCESS… more
Abstract:SAG Corporation proposes to develop a framework for measuring the economic and social costs and benefits of an Army career. The research will focus on identifying and evaluating data sources and developing quantitative methods and procedures for comparing these costs and benefits. The resulting… more
Abstract:The overall objective of this effort is to develop a voice communications model for application in interactive simulation systems that will address joint force operations. The model will address all aspects of the communications process including technical phenomenon related to transmitter, receiver… 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.
