Abstract:The Navy is seeking a new light-weight Atmospheric Diving Suit (ADS) design. This suit must be less than 400 lbs; at this weight a diver will be able to self-propel using his legs and fins. The system must ensure the divers safety at a working depth of 1000 ft of sea-water; protecting the body from… more
Abstract:Image processing methods have been studied and implemented for the vehicle classification over the past decades. The most dominant approach is the use of vehicle dimension, which requires complex processes of sensor calibration as the vehicle dimensions shown in the imagery are heavily dependent on… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: In the current security environment, violent extremist organizations are comprised of global networks of loosely connected cells marked by centralized decision making but decentralized execution of operations, where individuals are increasingly adept at leveraging various forms of… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I project is aimed at demonstrating that acyl glycinate surfactant can be produced by a novel bacterial fermentation route. The objective of this project is to construct a bacterial strain that produces acyl glycinate, and to provide a sample of that… more
Abstract:A sensor was developed in the Phase I effort that enabled the measurement of a wear liner thickness in a bearing. The goal of the Phase II effort is to mature that sensor into a system that can be qualified in spherical bearings such as AS81820 and AS81819. To reach that goal, NanoLab and its… more
Abstract:Need: NASA faces challenges in imaging and characterizing faint astrophysical objects within the glare of brighter stellar sources. Achieving a very low background requires control of both scattered and diffracted light.Significance of the Innovation: Aligned arrays of carbon nanotubes have… more

The project focuses on symbioses between marine invertebrates and microorganisms known to be rich… more
Abstract:U. S. Navy tactical and strategic forces need a real-time, autonomous classification capability to realize the full potential of fixed acoustic surveillance sensors. In this work, we demonstrate the feasibility of integrating a novel, physics-based automatic classification algorithm into a new,… more
Abstract:The proposed work will address the core physics underlying acoustic reverberation as related to properties of the ocean environment and properties of the acoustic sources, receivers and waveforms that make up ocean-going acoustic systems of interest to the U.S. Navy. Present day active acoustic… more
Abstract:Drifting mines pose a serious threat to the safe passage of US and international naval and commercial shipping traffic. In this SBIR, OASIS Inc. proposes to combine two algorithms developed under ONR/SPAWAR funding into a Mine Drift Tactical Decision Aid (MD-TDA). These algorithms include a tracer… more
Abstract:OPTRA proposes the development of an imaging spectrometer for greenhouse gas and volcanic gas imaging based on matched spectral filtering and compressive imaging.

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.
