Abstract:This project will investigate candidate space-time coding schemes to be incorporated in a multiple-input multiple output two-way communication system that operates within an urban warfare environment. The main objective is to increase channel capacity to achieve high-quality video transmission using… more
Abstract:Orbital pipe welding systems can function like skilled welders, to certain extent, who can move the torch very smoothly/evenly. However, their adjustment of welding parameters is not a true emulation of skilled welders who observe the weld pool and adjust welding parameters based on the observation… more
Abstract:Adaptive Materials Inc. is proposing to further the development of a Phase I SBIR Power Manager. The Power Manager Phase I device has demonstrated the ability to efficiently manage and provide power to multiple sources. The Phase I device also demonstrates a user interface that is intuitive and… more
Abstract:The Program Executive Office of the Littoral and Mine Warfare Systems, Maritime Surveillance Systems Program Office (PMS 485) operates SURTASS T-AGOS ships with TwinLine acoustic surveillance arrays in the Western Pacific where they encounter areas of intense fishing activity. The TwinLine array… more
Abstract:Multi-sensor data fusion is a critical technology used to support contact tracking and association for many Navy missions and systems. Traditional approaches focus on fusing contact position and kinematics data from multiple heterogeneous sensors, with overlapping coverage areas, in order to… more
Abstract:According to The Navy's Unmanned Undersea Vehicle (UUV) Master Plan updated in 2004, UUV's will perform important, force multiplying missions such as intelligence, surveillance, mine countermeasures, tactical oceanography, navigation and anti-submarine warfare. The missions they perform will be… more
Abstract:This SBIR topic for USW Intelligent Controller addresses innovative technology to help the sonar watch team to optimally employ USW assets for search and detection, classification, and tracking of surface and sub-surface platforms. Adaptive Methods and Metron have formed a team for this project -… more
Abstract:The U.S. Navy is seeking innovations that lead to lightweight, more comfortable, head protection technologies that are compatible with recent advancements in single and double hearing protection devices used by aircraft engine maintainers. The current USN cranial system, worn by aircraft… more
Abstract:High noise environments increase the difficulty of face-to-face communications, with or without the use of hearing protection. Further, understanding the acoustic cues that are available in the environment for maintaining situational awareness becomes increasingly difficult as background noise… more
Abstract:Advancements in subminiature earphone drivers will provide needed improvements in active noise reduction (ANR) earplug attenuation magnitudes and bandwidth.

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.
