Abstract:The objectives of this research are to design and develop a software prototype of a realistic ocean simulation system primarily to support development of environmental sensors through more precise evaluation of sensor design alternatives. This simulation system, the Environmental Sensor Simulation… more
Abstract:In Phase I Robust Towed Array Beamforming (RTAB) work, Applied Hydro-Acoustics Research, Inc. (AHA) developed and tested several candidate algorithms, including a data-adaptive "Hole-Filling" algorithm, that recover losses of acoustic performance resulting from acoustic channels failures. With… more
Abstract:Reducing reverberation noise, and increasing resolution drive the ability to detect, and classify underwater mines in a shallow littoral environment. This proposal addresses the problem with an analysis of reverberation noise from recorded sea tests, adaptive beamforming (ABF), and adaptive… more
Abstract:Protective helmets anticipated for the next generation Army soldier (Objective Force Warrior) will provide superior ballistic and biological protection by encapsulating the entire head. However, such an encapsulating design will limit the soldier's ability to effectively hear the surrounding… more
Abstract:The U.S. Navy aircraft maintainer personnel need innovative, lightweight, head protection technologies that are compatible with recent advancements in single and double hearing protection devices. The current USN cranial system, worn by aircraft maintainers on the flight deck, was originally… more
Abstract:In this project, we propose an integrated effort to develop a new radio technology, which we call adaptive spectrum technology, that is capable of dynamically sensing and locating the unused spectrum segments for use of communication in a way that causes no harmful interference to the designated… more
Abstract:The proposed research is indented to lead to the development of a commercial product that can create a virtual meeting presence by displaying the remote user?s face to achieve a presence. The goal is to render computer-generated objects and visualize them as real objects for the user, thus creating… more
Abstract:75903-Neutron radiography, which uses nuclear reactors and accelerators as sources of neutrons, has been demonstrated to be an excellent method for imaging high-density, thick objects for the detection of corrosion, voids, and cracks, particular in nuclear power plants. Unfortunately, no high… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This is a phase II SBIR proposal to develop a new drug eluting stent to prevent restenosis. It is a 3-way collaboration between Adenosine Therapeutics, LLC, Setagon, Inc., and the University of Virginia. The work described here will be done at Adenosine… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This is a phase II SBIR grant to develop a new therapy for the treatment of type II diabetes. Adenosine Therapeutics, LLC (ATL) is a biotechnology company started in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1999. ATL owns patents on the formulation of selective antagonists… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Adenosine Therapeutics, LLC (ATL) is a biotechnology company started in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1999. ATL owns patents on the formulation and use of a family of potent and highly selective agonists of A2A adenosine receptors. One of these compounds, ATL146e,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A first step in the elucidation of the genetic changes and molecular profiles associated with the development of cancer is the isolation of rare tumor cells from a background of millions of normal cells, or the fractionation of a heterogeneous cell population… more
Abstract:As the unmanned exploration of Mars and Venus becomes more of a focus area at NASA, inflatable, rigidizable wings will become an enabling technology. The successful development of this type of wing will also have significant military applications in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Rigidization of… more
Abstract:75352-Many DOE sites require the monitoring of radionuclide contamination in surface water, groundwater, soils, and the vadose zone ¿ often in real-time and with remote monitoring capability. However, existing site characterization procedures typically involve the collection and shipment of… more
Abstract:Light (UV and visible) curing composite matrix resins are being explored as an attractive means for rigidizing inflatable spacecraft for large space-deployed structures such as solar sails, radar and communications antennas, radiometers, and solar arrays. Light curing provides a controlled, clean,… more
Abstract:The interface is often a limiting factor in determining the durability of composite materials used in harsh environments. Attaining a well-bonded interface is particularly difficult with low-temperature curing matrix resin systems. A need exists for a carbon fiber adhesion promoting finish that is… more
Abstract:The reduction of the weight of individual equipment components is one of the main objectives in the Army's quest for a lighter, more mobile force. Special attention is required for non-structural components, because the potential for weight reduction without compromising battle field survivability… more
Abstract:Asbestos insulation material has been used in shipboard environments for many years. While the material is usually safe when left undisturbed, it becomes a major health hazard during removal. The fine, needle like crystals that can be released into the air during handling are inhaled into the deep… 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.
