Abstract:In Phase-I, ObjectVideo (OV) prototyped a system that ingests video from a variety of sensors (airborne, ground-based, maritime) and generates meta-data representing their contents in the form of modified DoD Discovery Metadata Specification (DDMS) cards that provide a compact representation of… more
Abstract:NASA's long range goals of reducing the fuel consumption by 30% and increasing fuel efficiency by 35% can be partially accomplished through increasing engine operation temperatures. As a result, the disk section is desired to operate in increasingly higher temperatures, which will subject it… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Echo Ridge and George Mason University propose to mature, enhance and further demonstrate the PNT equipment hardware in the loop (HiTL) test asset successfully prototyped in Phase I. The risk reduction prototyping accomplished in Phase I illustrated how efficient and automatic testing of… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Echo Ridge and partner Wright State University (WSU) propose to prototype and evaluate the Phase I-developed novel performance enhancing signal processing algorithms enabled by dynamic spectrum access (DSA)-based cognitive radio (CR) and GPS navigation functionality operating on a common… more
Abstract:Echo Ridge and partner Rockwell Collins propose to mature, enhance and further demonstrate the out the window (OTW)-synchronized RF environment emulator technology prototyped and demonstrated in Phase I. The Phase II design and development activities will result in a deliverable prototype system… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will perform research toward developing new behavior characterization methodologies that allow adaptive/cognitive radios to be rapidly introduced into the market improving spectrum utilization and therefore broadband access for all.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Falls among the elderly, one of the most common reasons requiring medical intervention and a contributing factor in 40% of nursing home admissions, are a major health problem. Several studies have identified quantifiable gait markers that appear to distinguish… more
Abstract:Today's static IT systems allow adversaries time to plan and launch attacks. Endeavor proposes a Multi-layer, Ever changing, Self-defense Service
(MESS) that is resilient and manageable. MESS prevents attackers from exploiting a target system by removing the static network & system attributes
Abstract:Project Summary/Abstract Ocular pharmaceuticals predominantly use the topical route of administration, which involves a number of benefits and limitations when compared to systemic drug routes. A major limitation of the ocular topical route is the rapid loss of drug via tearing and nasolacrimal… more
Abstract:Current commercial reactor fuel performance monitoring uses external power range monitors, and evaluates coolant water for contamination that would indicate failure of a fuel element. Estimates of the localized fission rates and temperature distributions within the reactor core are approximated… more
Abstract:Vacuum collection, holding and transfer (VCHT) systems are used on the newest Navy ships to reduce collected sewage volume to achieve desired holding capability when operating in littoral waters where discharge is restricted. Vacuum collection systems use sewage powered ejectors to discharge urinal… more
Abstract:Though vast improvements have been made in various protein expression platforms, limitations arise in the implementation of current purification methods. Traditional chromatographic methods are time intensive, carry heavy material costs, and are difficult to scale - reducing the benefits achieved in… more
Abstract:Neurotoxic organophosphorus (OP) agents (e.g. sarin, soman, VX and tabun) were developed initially as pesticides and adapted for chemical warfare. OP agents are fast acting and lethal at even very low doses. Countering the threat of intoxication by OP nerve agents is an important mission for… more
Abstract:One challenge encountered aboard marine vessels is the treatment, storage, and discharge of wastewater from marine sanitation devices (MSDs). Improperly treated waste water has a high potential for transmitting diseases and harming the ecosystem. The presence of Escherichia coli is routinely used as… more
Abstract:Military personnel and first responders must be prepared to operate under the threat of a wide range of CBRNE threats (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and high explosive) and rapidly counter WMD hazards. Daily-wear uniforms such as the army combat uniform (ACU) or the CWU-27/P flight… more
Abstract:Luna Innovations is developing stabilization technology for increased long-term storage of various biological moieties (e.g. enzymes, nucleic acids, and whole cells). This unique stabilization matrix allows for extended cell viability lifetime, minimizing cell maintenancerequirements while retaining… more
Abstract:Military training activities often result in environmental degradation due to creation of heavily disturbed soil areas including dirt road beds, vehicular training areas, tank trails, terrain subject to wildfires, artillery impact areas, helipads and dirt landing areas for aircraft. These areas are… more
Abstract:Luna Innovations Incorporated is proposing to design, build, and test a shape, length, and tension sensing tether for robotic exploration and sample-gathering missions on remote planets and moons. The proposed tether system is capable of determining the location and orientation of marsupial robots… more
Abstract:There is a need for a durable, non-toxic textile that is protective against vector-borne diseases, effective after repeating wear and laundering, and compatible with current / future military uniforms. The insect resistant textile is also expected to have no detrimental effect on the physical… 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.
