Abstract:Thermal imaging of the face and head for the purpose of deception detection has shown significant promise in recent studies. This technique could be used to enhance polygraph examinations and, because it is noninvasive, could also potentially be used for mass screening at critical security… more
Abstract:A primary obstacle that must be overcome in order for unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) to be able to provide valuable service to the fleet is the need for maintenance personnel onboard the vessel. Failure of a single key component that could easily be replaced or repaired on a manned vessel could… more
Abstract:Supercavitation is a state in which a gas cavity substantially encompasses a body immersed in a liquid. The consequence for underwater bodies is that drag over the non-wetted surface is drastically reduced, and this can be exploited to develop rapid reaction defensive weapons for submarines. In… more
Abstract:As the Navy expands its presence in shallow coastal waters, new technologies are required to address the precise and aggressive maneuvering desirable for many littoral mission scenarios. This translates directly to higher performance requirements for a ship's guidance, navigation, and control… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The combined adverse health effects of obesity, physical inactivity, and poor diet are well established and are thought to be associated with at least 20 different diseases and health disorders. Furthermore it has been estimated that obesity, sedentary lifestyle,… more
Abstract:The oculomotor response to angular head movement, or the angular vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR), is a measure of the accuracy of communication between the inner ear and the eyes that has been demonstrated for head rotation in yaw, pitch, and roll. Current "high-frequency" VOR testing methods are… more
Abstract:Integration of three proven, non-contact, optical metrology techniques with an emerging new polishing approach in a single machine will enable the rapid production of large aspheric mirrors with nanometer-class overall accuracy, excellent smoothness, and nearly arbitrary radius of curvature (concave… more
Abstract:We propose three basic thrusts for Phase II Conductive Repair Coating (CRC). First, utilize our understanding of filled polymer alloy coating systems gained in Phase I to optimize selected performance properties according to stringent criteria for a field-ready conductive repair coating system.… more
Abstract:This proposal is directed to the development of a process that utilizes this advanced ethanol-producing technology synergistically coupled to a low severity biomass pretreatment and a novel method of ethanol recovery and purification that will be capable of utilizing a wide variety of waste… more
Abstract:This program has two related objectives. The first objective is to facilitate the development of XML schemas that will provide a standardized format for the interchange of ATE related data. This collection of schemas comprises the Automatic Test Markup Language (ATML). A working group consisting of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): BCR Diagnostics, Inc. (BCR) proposes to study the feasibility of applying its low-cost biosensor technology to detecting bacteremia in real-time (i.e., less than 5 min). The premise underlying the application is that early diagnosis of bacteremia is crucial… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop a portable, rapid and specific capillary channel based immuno-sensing system for food pathogens. The tests will be able to detect concentrations of
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIlR) Phase I project will develop a portable device for oxygenating streams and other surface water bodies using a combination of aeration and Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF), a process often used in settling tanks.

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.
