Abstract:Applied Visions, Inc. (AVI) is pleased to present this proposal for a Phase II follow-on effort to our Phase I work on Topic N04-231 "Display and Visualization of Movement Predictions for Ground Vehicles". The core of the problem to be solved is that of minimizing the area of uncertainty (AOU) for… more
Abstract:Net-centric warfare places burdens on mission planners and commanders to understand dependencies, readiness, mobility, interoperability, and risk of cyber assets in addition to kinetic assets. They need to know "which computing assets are required for the success of the mission," "are there threats… more
Abstract:The use of monolithic airfoil structures in static and rotating components such as one-piece integrally bladed rotors (IBR's) in military turbine engines has created an increased risk of high cycle fatigue (HCF). The Phase I SBIR studies recently demonstrated plasma sprayed hard coating concepts… more
Abstract:Innovative damping methods for small turbine engines are needed by the Army and other military and commercial interests. The plasma sprayed coating process provides a method for successfully achieving the required damping for the newer high efficiency turbine engines that experience high "g " loads… more
Abstract:Assessment of communications in simulation based training suffers from (1) slow pace, (2) a reliance on communications data to the exclusion of behavioral and contextual data, (3) use of a single language model to handle multiple forms of language, and (4) failure to systematically address Mission… more
Abstract:The Model-based Optimal System for Training (MOST) is an optimal Intelligent Team Tutoring System (ITTS) for training team and individual resource allocation skills. MOST will contain five models; (1) an optimal task performance model (expert model), (2) an optimal context model, (3) an optimal… more
Abstract:Formal training for senior leadership positions in the USAF is uncommon. USAF leaders typically receive little training to perform at the operational level. Therefore, we propose to develop a tool that will supplement their on-the-job training and benefit a variety of leadership positions. During… more
Abstract:Our Phase I effort demonstrated the potential for Complex Adaptive Systems theory (CAS) simulation modeling to help in strategy development regarding enemy's Courses of Action (COA). The Complex Adaptive System Strategy Interplay Environment (CASSIE) project discovered that numerical simulation… more
Abstract:Network centric warfare promises to increase information sharing and allow distribution of decision making. This will improve military effectiveness, but only if the situational awareness (SA) of warfighters is correctly aligned. IMAGES is a software tool that will infer the cognitive states of… more
Abstract:In any mission involving hierarchical levels of command, a key success factor is the clear communication of intent, as well as a common understanding of the ongoing situation, across levels of command. In practice, however, command intent may be distorted as subordinates communicate goals downward,… more
Abstract:The objective of the proposed work is to utilize innovative optimization algorithms and normative engineering models for the design of Army organizations. This system will increase productivity and efficiency of Army organizations by identifying critical factors in organizational structure, resource… more
Abstract:Increasingly, the Army has become engaged in "operations other than war." Compared to traditional combat operations, these missions are considerably more complex and ill-defined. Success in these operations requires that Army leaders view problems from a Joint Forces mindset, recognize the long-term… more
Abstract:Future C4ISR capabilities must provide warfighters with the abilities to clearly and comprehensively understand the battlespace and quickly decide on appropriate courses of action. Future systems must account for the cognitive capabilities and limitations of users, giving warfighters the ability to… more
Abstract:The U.S. Navy is taking advantage of the revolution in information technology to support rapid evolution of its command and control systems. Along with the ability to rapidly reconfigure displays and controls, however, comes the need to rigorously evaluate the effectiveness of new human-machine… more
Abstract:Network centric warfare offers increased connectivity across echelons, enabling smaller, lighter units to behave with greater independence and respond faster to changing operational contexts. Nowhere is this capability more valuable than in Special Warfare, where small teams seek to move rapidly,… more
Abstract:This proposal arises from an attempt to design a computer suitable for the efficient execution of software that displays human-like cognitive abilities. Examples of such software applications include natural language understanding, text processing, conceptually based internet search, natural… more
Abstract:A major requirement for effective weapon system evaluation, construct development, and training in constructive simulations is the ability to adequately represent behaviors in response to suppressive fire during urban combat. Current simulations lack adequate representation of the behavioral… more
Abstract:We propose to develop a discrete event simulation tool for evaluation and analysis of the components of a real-time, distributed computing/communications environment. This environment consists of communications equipment and the human decision makers whose tasks are facilitated by this equipment. … more
Abstract:We propose producing the MiDAS (Mission Displays for Autonomous Systems) interface designed to exploit existing automation capabilities of unmanned vehicles and improve future user interfaces in unmanned vehicles using an automated control system. Our technical approach features an innovative… more
Abstract:Military operations are transitioning from a platform-centric (or unit-oriented) approach to a network-centric (or enterprise-oriented) architecture. This architecture will provide decision makers with unprecedented amounts of information. However, information availability alone is insufficient to… more
Abstract:The purpose of the proposed effort is to develop a predictive model-based tool, and associated metrics, to assess the impact of various levels of simulator fidelity on training effectiveness and combat mission performance. Aptima will base the proposed tool on an updated categorization of the levels… more
Abstract:The goal of this project is to provide the basis for a decision support capability for project/program managers early in the systems acquisition process so they can make informed decisions to reduce life cycle costs and improve deployed system readiness. This project will apply Cognitive Work… more
Abstract:A central challenge for the U.S. armed services lies not in fighting nation-state armed forces, but in dealing with more irregular forces. The glue that holds many of these forces together and motivates them to fight is a common belief system, or shared cultural identity. Hence, it is essential to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Approximately 10 million people in the U.S. are estimated to have osteoporosis, a disease that results in over 1.5 million bone fractures a year. It is now known that the accumulation of fat cells (adipocytes) in bone marrow is a major factor contributing to… more
Abstract:Commercial-scale marine aquaculture has the potential to balance the increasing demand for high-quality seafood products with the harvest capacity of our nation¿s oceans. However, water reuse in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) is limited by the accumulation of nitrate (NO3), which is toxic… 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.
