Warfighters operating in hot regions while wearing encapsulating Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will require a Compact and Quiet Microclimate Cooling System (CQ-MCS) to… more
Abstract:The objective of this project is to finish the development and qualification testing of Diver Heating and Cooling Systems. Both units are capable of operation from a similarly size battery for greater than 3 hours but can also be plugged into SDV boat power for very long durations. Each of the units… more
Abstract:Soldiers at the tactical edge of today"s military operations have information requirements that are not met by current ISR systems. They need to make quick decisions while interacting in densely populated environments comprised of friendly, hostile, and neutral host nation locals. Enabled by… more
Abstract:To decrease the manual effort and increase the configuration management tempo of the Fusion Center"s knowledge management practices, J3KM Team proposes the development of the Collaborative Event Processing Environment (CEPE) which would wrap current Fusion Center Knowledge Management (KM)… more
Abstract:The United States Navy (USN) continues to face difficult sustainment challenges, compounded by incessant budget constraints and edicts to"do more with less". To address these challenges, the USN has standardized on Performance Based Logistics (PBL) as the main component to Total Life Cycle… more
Abstract:During Phase I of this research, the Securboration Team prototyped the Adaptive Data Immersion ENvironment (ADIEN) and demonstrated groundbreaking capability in adaptive human machine collaboration one in which the computer learns, adapts, and informs analysts based on their practices, situational… more
Abstract:A general framework for course of action (COA) recommender systems consists of four primary functional areas : (1) mapping human entered COA into formalized, machine readable knowledge representation; (2) deconstructing COA decision models into relevant features or variables of interest; (3)… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Silicon carbide based power devices has several advantages because it can be used in very high power, high temperature, high frequency applications, where conventional silicon devices cannot be used. Despite significant advancement in SiC semiconductor technology in the past 3 decades,… more
Abstract:The program will develop a new quality and process control methodology and tool prototype for real-time inspection of crystalline silicon solar and ceramic solid oxide fuel cells. The Activation Station will be used in-line to reduce cost, save energy and increase yield of solar and fuel cell module… more

Abstract:ABSTRACT: Existing air-to-ground weapon architectures are generally based on point designs which are unique to individual weapons and/or weapon prime contractors. These weapons cannot be readily modified or upgraded, or easily reconfigured to different capability levels for cost-effective… more
Abstract:In the first phase of this program Plasmonics was able to make a breadboard profile sensor using COTS optics and a pyroelectric-linear-detector array that was able to detect a human by subtending greater than 16 pixels across the target at a range of up to 75 m. Based on work in Phase I, it was… 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.
