Their success in saving lives depends on their ability to act effectively, both individually and as a team. Therefore, training must address individual skills and knowledge as well as interactions among team… more
Abstract:Military domains, such as naval operations, require agile decision-making by Warfighters as they monitor ongoing activities, assess the impact of events, and develop or adjust plans to achieve the overall mission. These missions and resulting tasks emerge from a consistently evolving battlespace,… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Although Partial Task Trainers (PTTs) have been shown to have a cost savings of 60 percent over training on actual systems, they routinely cost the Government in manpower, maintenance, and upgrades, and are limited by static content that does not address differently skilled trainees.… more
Abstract:Underwater ship hull inspection platforms routinely check for damage, corrosion, and suspicious objects. Highly accurate position information is required to properly register hull inspection data with previously collected data to monitor the progression of structural anomalies and other changes and… more
Abstract:Sonar operators on anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW)-capable surface ships have difficulty reaching and maintaining proficiency. Existing training systems, such as the SAST sub-system of the AN/SQQ-89A(V)15 undersea combat system) do not sufficiently motivate sailors to participate in training,… more
Abstract:US Navy efforts to develop effective torpedo countermeasures have yielded mixed results, but improvements are on the horizon. However, the relatively small number of sensors on each ship limits the military utility of the torpedo defense picture currently available to ship commanders. For effective… more
Abstract:Current countermeasure anti-torpedo (CAT) systems use explicit logic to direct single-target intercepts resulting in an inability to adapt to the complexities of the stochastic marine environment and the problems of multiple, simultaneous threats. The CAT Learning Algorithm Workbench (CLAW) is an… more
Abstract:Electrolysis of water is an important tool for automotive hydrogen refueling and renewable energy storage applications. The current membranes for electrolysis suffer from low efficiency, low mechanical strength and high hydrogen crossover at the high pressures needed for direct refueling. The DOE… more
Abstract:Measurement and monitoring of subsurface microbial activity plays a critical role in studying the extent of contamination at the Department of Energy (DOE) sites and its impact on the surrounding environment. The subsurface microbiology is a window into the health of the soil and groundwater before,… more
Abstract:Conventional lithium-ion batteries demonstrate great potential for applications in electrical vehicles, but they face some major challenges such as low energy density and high cost. It is worthwhile to pursue alternative strategies to address the barriers of cost and energy density.… more
Abstract:In this proposal, we consider GaN Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) Technologies to enable a low cost, high performance, thin, efficient, low size, weight and power (SWaP), Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) Radar for high altitude submarine periscope detection. MMIC technology… more
Abstract:Although the thyratrons used in klystron modulators for large accelerator projects function properly, they need replacement every 10,000 hours at a cost of $13,000 each, plus labor. Furthermore, periodic maintenance is required to adjust their reservoir heater voltage over the thyratron lifetime.… more
Abstract:Energid Technologies proposes a software architecture and supporting implementation focused on training robots. Currently, robot training for complex tasks often involves writing software, which is impractical in the field. To address this, Energid will leverage its commercial Actin robot control… more
Abstract:GVD and its partners propose to develop an active anti-tamper conformal coating based on GVD"s proprietary polymer thin film vapor deposition technology. There is an immediate need to for improved anti-tamper (AT) technologies to protect critical program information (CPI) found in the software… more
Abstract:There is a need to reduce the cost and improve the reliability of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) and their supporting infrastructure to enable FCEV competitiveness. Many reliability problems stem from plastic and elastomer seals employed in hydrogen systems that leak and degrade as a… more
Abstract:Hstar proposes a mobile, advanced, agile, and adaptable Mission Module handling (A3M2-Hand) system which is compatible with Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) Mission Modules and common to all LCS configurations. Hstar"s innovative approach separates the lifting and transporting of the Mission Modules… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase I Proposal addresses the need for a low-profile, broad-band, high- performance, shear-mode tonpilz transducer that can operate at deep depths. In one approach we add a special suspension system to the Van Tol/Meyer tonpilz that allows operation at submarine depth with only a small… more
Abstract:Next generation sequencing technologies are allowing researchers to rapidly and accurately interrogate the genomic content of microbiomes. Advances in our understanding of the human microbiome are likely to lead to the use of next generation sequencing as a diagnostic tool to identify the existence… more
Abstract:BioSensics LLC, in partnership with the Center for Advanced Orthopaedic Studies at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, will develop the shoulder injury risk assessment (ShIRA) software tool for a wide range of activities. The injury risk criteria and exposure assessment models will be developed… more
Abstract:Military helmet systems increase the likelihood of low and high-severity injuries, but the additional risk of neck injuries associated with Head Supported Devices (HSDs) has not been quantified. It is necessary to determine safe and tolerable limits of HSD mass, spatial distribution around helmet… more
Abstract:This program will accelerate transitioning of high-throughput versions of JENTEKs MWM Array eddy-current sensors and GridStation impedance instruments to the U.S. Navy. The proposed systems will have between 350 and 600 fully parallel impedance channels. With greater data acquisition speed from each… 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.
