Abstract:Limb loss affects approximately 1.9 million people in the United States. It is well established that lower-limb amputees show greater metabolic demands during gait and more limited mobility compared to non-disabled individuals. Currently, there is no lower-extremity prosthesis available that can… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Barron Associates, together with subcontractor Rockwell Collins, propose to develop a new class of design and analysis tool that will significantly reduce the time and costs associated with V & V of complex cyber-physical systems-of-systems, and that will pave the way to certification… more
Abstract:The LOCUST40mm is a surveillance system that is fired from a standard M320 grenade launcher. It provides unique capabilities not offered by other 40mm-launched systems and fills an important capability gap currently faced by ground troops. In particular, the LOCUST40mm has significant greater… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Nicotine addiction poses a serious public health problem in the United States. Cigarette smoking alone has been identified as the cause of numerous diseases, including cancers (e.g., lung, bladder, kidney, and oral cancers, among others), cardiovascular diseases… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Multi-modal Application for the Perception of Spaces (MAPS) is an Android tablet application and wearable USB peripheral that provides an on-the-go stereo-tactile, audio, and high-contrast visual map of interior spacesfor individuals who are blind or visually… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The Detection and Alerting System for Seizure Onset (DASSO) will be a comfortable, chest-worn device that will provide continuous, wireless seizure monitoring for individuals with epilepsy. Barron Associates, a leader in the development of wireless… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall goal of this multi-phase SBIR research effort is to develop a handheld fall risk assessment instrument for use by health and elder care providers. Falls occur in up to 30% of those over the age of 65 and upto 40% for people over the age of 80. Falls… more
Abstract:Many existing flight simulators currently lack the aerodynamics modeling required to train pilots for stall/upset conditions. Further, the process of updating an existing simulator database can be difficult and costly due to simulation database rights licensing, complex simulation host architectures… more
Abstract:By exploiting the high Doppler rate of torpedoes, low-latency, high-reliability, and high-mobility torpedo detection, classification and localization (DLC) can be accomplished with joint active-passive sonar signal processing using the hull array. Our system combines passive cues and a new active… more
Abstract:This proposal addresses NASA's science objectives with innovative lidar architecture for atmospheric CO2 measurements. Specifically, the proposed work can support and potentially enhance the Active Sensing of CO2 Emissions over Nights, Days, and Seasons (ASCENDS) technologies. Using an active… more
Abstract:As the number and type of sensors and associated platforms grows, the complexity of collection management skyrockets. Achieving the goal of developing more effective and efficient collection plans requires a more informed collection management information architecture. This architecture must not… more
Abstract:The Department of Defense Joint Vision 2020 aims to create a force that is dominant across the full spectrum of military operations through information superiority. Achieving these objectives implies the ability to dynamically share and store data among potentially thousands of participants at the… more
Abstract:We propose to apply a proprietary discrimination technique rooted in the manifold learning literature to discrimination of object type through radar and through electro-optical/infrared sensors, and to use the features computed by this technique to help correlate tracks between sensors. Our… 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 content requirements. Complicating matters, these key pieces of information are scattered across data stores and buried in huge volumes of… more
Abstract:Social network analysis has become one of the most powerful analytic tools in both private and government sectors and a key source of information on individuals and groups. Recently, social media arose as an important source for social network data in both sectors. Unfortunately, theoretically… more
Abstract:This effort is focused on the development of a system called Situational Awareness via Mixed-initiative Universal Recognition, Analysis, and Inference (SAMURAI). SAMURAI will provide a single cloud-enabled end-to-end workflow covering the full range of data analysis from data ingest to situational… more
Abstract:A document can express a wealth of information about its author, including potential groups they might sympathize with to the opinions or emotions they convey.

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.
