Abstract:Current Mine Countermeasure (MCM) operations attempt to balance risk to commander"s intent and time via processes that are staff and time intensive. Existing tools such as MEDAL have helped to alleviate some of this, but those tools lack an comprehensive understanding of the uncertainties… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Demand for Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) within the U.S. Military has significantly increased over the past decade, including Micro-Air Vehicles (MAVs). However, effective use of these systems has been hindered by the lack of natural interfaces for controlling them. Currently multiple… more
Abstract:Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) currently deployed on the battlefield are driven with Operator Control Units (e.g., joystick or point-and-click interface), which requires the full attention of an operator. This means the operator cannot concentrate on maintaining situational awareness, security, or… more
Abstract:Current Unmanned Air Systems (UAS) require a great deal of specialized training and experience to use effectively. Furthermore, their use is dominated by a paradigm of control in which a highly trained operator is giving very precise, low-level commands to a UAS. As UAS become more autonomous, they… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This Phase I program proposes conceptual design and proof-of-concept acoustic testing of a unique nozzle concept for providing significant reductions in jet noise. These reductions are achieved through application of nozzle design features that address different jet noise reduction… more
Abstract:This Phase I program proposes use of a Heat Exchanger / Reactor (HEX Reactor) to address thermal management challenges for next generation fighter aircraft. In the proposed application, a HEX Reactor converts excess heat energy into storable energy by harnessing the large energy requirements of… more
Abstract:The proposed work seeks to develop a computational tool to conduct sophisticated and realistic computational modeling of the mesoscale dynamics of heterogeneous energetic materials/high explosives (HEs) under the effects of imposed loads. Designing propulsion devices and munitions for precise… more
Abstract:The innovative methodologies proposed in this STTR Phase 1 project will enhance Loci-STREAM which is a high performance, high fidelity simulation tool already being used at NASA for a variety of CFD applications. This project will address critical needs in order to enable fast and accurate… more
Abstract:Throughout government and industry there is currently no formal standard or method from which we can define, specify, or communicate and exchange testing requirements throughout a products life cycle. This lack of standards leads to reduced testing capability and is one of the primary drivers for… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Demodex mites are microscopic ectoparasites that commonly infest the pilosebaceous unit of the skin. Uncontrolled overgrowth of mites has been implicated in causing papulopustular lesions in the skin, rosacea in the face, and blepharitis in the eye. Blepharitis… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Glaucoma drainage devices (GDDs) have widely been used in the treatment of high-risk refractory glaucoma. To avoid tube exposure, which may lead to serious eye infection, the implanted GDD tube must be covered by apatch graft traditionally made of either… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The corneal endothelium plays a pivotal role in maintaining corneal transparency. Unlike other species, the human corneal endothelium is notorious for its limited proliferative capacity in vivo after injury, aging, andsurgery. Persistet corneal endothelial… more
Abstract:This product develops and evaluates a proof-of-concept, mobile speech-to-sign translator that integrates continuous speech recognition software with natural language processing and Vcom3D’s Signing Avatar animated American Sign Language technology. This speech-to-sign the application is designed… more
Abstract:Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing (Deaf/hh) persons rely heavily on facial movements for communication, whether in American Sign Language (ASL), Signed English (SE), or Spoken English. In ASL, signers add “mouth morphemes”, similar to speech movements, to signs to distinguish concepts that use the same… more
Abstract:For this Phase II SBIR project, Vcom3D, with Soar Technology as subcontractor, proposes to develop a toolkit for rapidly creating Serious Games that train tactical application of cultural knowledge in authentic, experiential environments. This toolkit will extend the two companies"platform… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The world market for medical ultrasound transducers exceeds one billion dollars annually, with an average cost to the physician exceeding 5,000 for each transducer. Transducers are made almost exclusively from lead zirconate titanate (PZT), a ceramic which has… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The opportunity exists to leverage readily available F-16 aircraft equipped with AN/ALE-40 and -47 Countermeasures Dispensing System (CMDS) to support vital monitoring of atmospheric conditions using rawinsonde and dropsonde sensor technologies. In addition to providing direct in-situ… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Current methods for physically interconnecting electrical interfaces on micro-munitions to host platforms or other carriage devices rely on traditional military style circular connectors. These connectors typically have significant physical footprints in locations where space is at a… more
Abstract:Defense Electronics Corporation (DEC) will develop and demonstrate innovative closed-loop control mechanisms for high quality factor Radio Frequency filters or banks of filters for use in frequency-agile radio front-ends. These mechanisms include a hybrid filter control technique using real-time… more
Abstract:Defense Electronics Corporation (DEC) proposes an innovative radiation hardened by design (RHBD) and reliability improvement solution for silicon, III-V compounds (e.g. SiGe, SiC, GaN, InP, GaAs,), carbon nanotubes (CNT), and graphene. The method is based on analyzing chip-partitioned quiescent… more
Abstract:Alakai proposes to develop a Standoff Explosive Raman AIT Upgrade Module (SERAUM) which utilizes, Eye-safe, deep UV Raman scanning/imager
to detect explosives and their precursors, for short standoff trace explosive detection. This system is designed for integration into DHS's Advanced
Abstract:Anger and Stress are common symptoms that interfere with daily functioning for returning service members, more specifically ones that are suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Current mitigation efforts to help cope and treat these symptoms often rely on face-to-face treatment with a… more
Abstract:An opportunity exists to develop a decision support tool for medical training practitioners/acquisition community which can guide designers through the identification of fidelity level requirements and present trade-offs based on the task that is being trained, the desired level of performance… 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.
