Abstract:Outdoor acoustics simulation plays a vital role in several military and commercial applications, such as minimizing the noise profile of reconnaissance vehicles to avoid counter-detection, optimizing sensors and systems for tactical advantage, pinpointing the origin of gunshots using their acoustic… more
Abstract:Although computer science is a growing field with lucrative salaries, few U.S. students major in the discipline, especially females. This project team is developing a prototype of a hybrid graphic novel/video game using robotics to support computer science education to middle school students. … more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I innovation addresses deficiencies in science content knowledge exhibited by many elementary school teachers. Project Near-Earth Object is a game-based professional development product that teachers can also use as a self-assessment tool to… more
Abstract:The innovation uses game-based learning to increase the mathematical knowledge, mathematical thinking, and mathematical performance of middle school students. The problems being addressed are that average test scores of U.S. middle school students on international tests are low, and many students… more
Abstract:We will develop a modular, distributed Bayesian inference system to provide a networked context inference system capable of operating on processor constrained devices. The Bayesian inference system will enable task automation via capabilities to extract relevance of situational awareness… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Avolare2 proposes to establish a 90nm metal source/drain"Schottky"CMOS process at Cypress Semiconductor"s high volume manufacturing facility in Bloomington, MN. Schottky CMOS will have a profound impact on the performance and reliability of most of the integrated circuits… more
Abstract:Windlift will provide a HMMWV-towable renewable energy system capable of harnessing high altitude winds with a tethered wing. The system will be capable of generating 10 kW and will be equipped with a backup generator for use during periods of low wind.
Abstract:The objective of proposed work is to demonstrate the feasibility of obtaining AlGaN films of any composition with dislocation densities below 1x106 cm-2 on native nitride substrates either by sustaining a pseudomorphic state or by reducing the number of threading dislocations by specific stress… more
Abstract:Innovation in perishable foodstuff track-and-trace is of critical importance to cost and time-sensitive customers such as the food industry where contamination and spoilage are of concern, safety and security are paramount, and counterfeit and bio-terrorism prevention are urgent priorities. The… more
Abstract:Most small and mid-scale livestock producers have been unable to take advantage of growing consumer demand for premium, all-natural, locally-raised meats, especially through wholesale channels. This relates to a host of factors, including the vertically-integrated nature of existing meat supply… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Each year in the United States over 270,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and over 40,000 will die from the disease. While multiple forms of breast cancer exist, a common theme in most of the forms involvesaberrations in signal transduction pathways… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of the use of a debris cartridge in an implant to prevent obstruction in debris-releasing glaucomas, such as uveitic, pigment-dispersion, and pseudoexfoliation glaucomas. Glaucoma is a group of chronic eye… more
Abstract:An analysis of alternatives, including modeling, will be conducted of such candidates technologies such as localization, energy provision, and reporting, which are required for long-duration, LPD localization of various types of vessels operating in blue, green and brown water, with near-real time… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The primary objective of this research effort is to develop a next-generation time-gated ballistic imaging (BI) system for three-dimensional characterization of liquid breakup within dense fuel sprays. The temporal resolution will be varied using nonlinear time gating and pulse shaping… 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.
