The proposed system will enable a small number of humanoperators to rapidly develop, execute, and… more
Abstract:The Large N ASW problem can be summarized as pervasive short-range sensors with limited communication capabilities. The driving questions are how are false alarms controlled-not necessarily from an individual sensor node, but from the overallfield-performance of individual sensor nodes, the amount… more
Abstract:Developing confident fused estimates derived by combining multi-source data (e.g. sensor data, human intelligence reports and open-source data) is a challenge for intelligence analysts. Data that can provide evidence about terrorist network operations aresparse, uncertain, disparate, and can… more
Abstract:Identifying toxic-substance exposure at low, subtoxic concentrations requires interpretation of complex, time-related changes in gene, protein, and metabolite expression patterns. We propose a statistical pattern recognition software tool based onflexible and adaptable modules. In Phase I, we will… more
Abstract:The information age has produced a flood of information to system operators and decision-makers in a multitude of application domains. Each piece of data that feeds a system can produce complex interactions with other data in the scenario. This projectwill examine the uncertainty associated with… more
Abstract:Quantum mechanics predicts that quantum two-level systems - qubits - can provide fundamentally new modes of information processing due to possible existing in an arbitrary coherent superposition of quantum states. A practical realization of quantuminformation processing requires obviously isolated… more

Abstract:This project builds on experience in an SBIR phase I project which successfully determined that the particle transport code Geant4 could be applied to the simulation of biological shielding. Among the many lessons learned during phase I was that while the physics and functionality embodied in Geant4… more
Abstract:72527B03-I The benefits of integrating Distributed Energy Resources (DER) into the U.S. electric power system are well documented. Unfortunately, electric utilities view DER as potentially disruptive to existing grid protection systems, and the increased use of DER would be hampered by the… more
Abstract:The failure of digital circuits due to radiation using simulation was not addressed in the past due to several obstacles. First, radiation failure models, radiation faults dictionaries and the specification of susceptibility to radiation are not availablein the current hardware description languages… 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.
