Abstract:Rotorcraft operations in a degraded visual environment, and particularly near the ground or other obstacles, can create a high risk of incident and reduce mission effectiveness. The lack of visual cues can create spatial disorientation and increases pilot workload. In a worst-case scenario the lack… more
Abstract:Dropsondes are one of the primary atmospheric measurement tools available to researchers. Current dropsondes are deployed with a free fall parachute trajectory, allowing no flight path control and requiring the deployment aircraft to fly close to the target. Adding an extended, guided range… more
Abstract:Aircraft Loss-Of-Control (LOC) has been a longstanding contributor to fatal aviation accidents. Inappropriate pilot action for healthy aircraft, control failures, and vehicle impairment are frequent contributors to LOC accidents. These accidents could be reduced if an on-board system was available… more
Abstract:Both autopilot systems and human pilots, particularly human pilots operating in instrument meteorological conditions, rely heavily on sensor feedback to safely control aircraft. The loss of reliable information for even a single state feedback signal can easily initiate a chain of events that leads… more
Abstract:Project Summary/Abstract The proposed NeuroScience Practical Applications to Reach K-12 Students (NeuroSPARKS) project leverages wireless technology in physiological sensing to create an affordable and engaging system for hands- on neuroscience education in K-12 students. The … more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 1.6 - 3.8 million concussions occur annually. Although striking, these figures are vast underestimates of the actual number of afflicted individuals because many who have suffered a concussion are… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Obstructive sleep-disordered breathing (OSDB) is common in both children and adults and is recognized as having substantial health-related consequences at all ages. Laboratory polysomnography (PSG) is the gold standardfor diagnosing OSDB, but the procedure is not… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The Virtual Occupational Therapy Assistant (VOTA) will enable stroke patients to practice activities of daily living (ADLs) as part of an in-patient, skilled nursing, outpatient, home health, and/or teletherapy rehabilitation program. The system leverages… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Introduction: The Blink-based Communication (BLINC) System will allow any patient who retains oculomotor control to reliably signal for assistance and communicate basic requests to a caregiver. It uses infrared (IR) cameras and illuminators to continuously… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Currently, FDA-licensed pharmaceuticals used to treat rheumatoid arthritis (RA) focus largely on alleviation of symptoms, either through pain management, general immunosuppression, or by antagonizing cytokines such as TNF-?. Despite recent advances in biologic… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This project will identify feasible game-theoretical approaches for joint waveform adaptation, cognitive spectrum sensing & management in hierarchical spectrum sharing games with primary users, secondary users, persistent jammers and asymmetric information structures. Develop… more
Abstract:Representing knowledge in a triple store is trivial, yet querying and visualizing the resulting knowledge is difficult and inefficient when the number of triples is large. Needing to understand the data models from each of the contributing processes and how these data models overlap or interact… more
Abstract:The US military and intelligence community has been successfully fusing the data it gathers into actionable intelligence. However, the volume of data is increasing such that it cannot be processed on a single server, calling for distributed data fusion algorithms that operate across a cloud. As data… more
Abstract:Natural language processing and semantic data modeling will be leveraged to assess and characterize IRs and predictions in order to support automated processing of the overall collection effort. For each IR, the system will identify the types of informat
Abstract:Rapid response missions to remote, unknown areas are becoming a primary focus for U.S. military forces. These missions require time-sensitive development of intelligence from all available sources including open source data, historic imagery, and live collections. Capabilities currently exist to… more
Abstract:To maintain situational awareness, analysts must sift through and fuse information across multiple documents, data sources, and modalities (text, imagery, and biometrics). The emergence of Big Data has placed an enormous burden on the analyst as the volume of data to examine has increased… more
Abstract:Creating information products to answer"Tell Me About"questions requires the ability to identify key pieces of information relevant to a complex set of information requirements. Complicating matters, these key pieces of information exist in multiple modalities scattered across data stores,… more
Abstract:Semantically Linked Data is widely seen as a revolutionary approach for maximizing the usefulness of existing and future information. In the materials domain, semantically linked materials data holds considerable promise with the ability to facilitate materials research and product development,… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Each day, enormous amounts of information are generated, and the rate at which this happens continues to increase. Much of the information is unstructured text, which is exceptionally difficult to use. The challenge of exploiting high volume unstructured text is especially significant… more
Abstract:In this Phase II effort we will produce a multi-sensor discrimination system using a Manifold Learning (MFL) algorithm originally developed under a prior effort. Whereas other discrimination systems utilize features defined by subject matter experts (SMEs), our MFL algorithm learns important… more
Abstract:Existing information extraction technology can only partially address the problem of exploiting unreadably-large amounts text. When discussion of events is limited to simple, past-tense, factual descriptions of events, current NLP-based systems can ident
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Although Natural Language Processing research has produced powerful techniques for parsing and data extraction, computers remain mostly oblivious to the meaning of the language they process. Computers cannot, in general, connect the words and phrases in language to a larger model of the… more
Abstract:The goal of any spacecraft trajectory design process is to identify a path that transfers a vehicle from its point of origin to some specific destination in the presence of path and mission level constraints. From the mission designer perspective, this process is divided into two primary tasks: (a)… more
Abstract:Pattern of Life characterization involves studying how people interact with the world around them on a daily basis: places they visit; people they interact with; actions they perform. Effective tracking of such patterns of life has direct implications to defense intelligence, cyber intelligence and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Environmental protection coatings are required to provide oxidation and hot corrosion protection to hot section turbine components. Unfortunately, the current generation of such coatings can degrade the fatigue resistance of the coated alloy. It is increasingly recognized that, due to… 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.
