Abstract:Heterogeneous networks are being utilized to provide the communication infrastructure needed to transport multimedia traffic and mission critical traffic. Currently, there does not exist a complete solution that enables the efficient utilization of heterogeneous environments in order to provide… more
Abstract:As warfare becomes more technology bound there is a growing threat of misappropriation of software that could disable or hinder US military activities. Twister provides a theoretically sound mechanism for combining anti-tamper technology in a manner that is resistant to both patching and analysis. … more
Abstract:The ever increasing size and dynamics of networks like the GIG-NCES communications network, makes situational awareness, intrusion detection and network monitoring very difficult. Dynamic and evolving networks provide unique challenges because the location, number and addresses of the nodes in the… more
Abstract:To optimize the effective performance of a mobile ad hoc network (MANET) for a mission, i.e., its mission performance effectiveness (MPE), a network planner has to make a judicious selection of several network design parameters. This task is well beyond the capability of even a subject matter expert… more
Abstract:The US Army has identified a need for a solution to correct problems that arise during the use of stateful inspection devices in asymmetrically routed networks. These stateful inspection devices, such as firewalls and intrusion detection systems, monitor communications sessions in order to provide… more
Abstract:The current, dominant approach to implementing secure boundary controls across networks relies on strict physical separation of networks. The approach of using trusted operating system platforms and automated guards has proven to be unworkable for multimedia applications and cost prohibitive for… more
Abstract:Situational awareness is important in all activities that humans do for safety and efficiency reasons. Emergency personal situational awareness is currently limited by the inability to visualize and track the position of responders within a structure by commanders. Commanders are also restricted by… more
Abstract:The Joint Forces Command (JFCOM) has identified the need for secure and dynamic management and control of real-time networks to empower war-fighting commanders in network centric personnel recovery and other combat operations. Current hub-centric network control systems limit the capability of the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Integrated disease phenotype and cellular genotype research is advanced by testing hypotheses using stored aqueous samples of DNA, cDNA or other precious liquids from subjects with known characteristics. Many life science laboratories store thousands of such… more
Abstract:In an attempt to extend turbine engine on-wing time, thermal barrier coatings (TBC) using various application techniques have been developed. High temperatures corrosion due to penetration of chemically active species along the columnar grains of the topcoat limits the durability of TBCs. This… more
Abstract:Critical large bearings in the F-35 thrust vector system must operate with absolute reliability under high loads, high heat and corrosive attack from salt air and fluorinated lubricant at elevated temperatures. A unique patented Filtered Arc Plasma Source Ion Deposition (FAPSID) process developed… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this SBIR project is to develop an integrated, image-guided ultrasound therapy system for soft tissue ablation, including cancer therapy. The motivation for this approach, based on extensive preliminary data, is that image guided bulk ablation using… more
Abstract:Spray drift from pesticide applications is a significant issue for U.S. agriculture. Spray drift, and efficacy of agrochemicals, are strongly affected by the droplet size spectra and the physical properties of the spray. Applicators have general guidance on nozzle selection but most reference tables… more
Abstract:Arete proposes to develop a wavelength converter to extend the STIL operating range into the near infrared. The converter exploits high quantum efficiency detectors, VLSI electronics and Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers. In Phase I multiple channel WC devices were produced and used to… more
Abstract:A key near-term objective of the Mission Equipment Packages (MEP) for Class II Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) program is to develop ultra-compact eyesafe 3D ladar and active 2D sensors for deployment on organic unmanned aerial vehicles. This will enable beyond-line-of-sight reconnaissance,… more
Abstract:High-resolution lidar imaging provides fully three-dimensional (3D) images that have distinct advantages in comparison to two-dimensional images. Some of the advantages provided by the additional range information are the ability to reject clutter, to accurately discriminate decoys from targets,… more
Abstract:Due to the limited number of P-3 aircraft, the most economical and expeditious way to enhance operations and ensure crew safety is to incorporate a low-cost expendable Sonochute Launched Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) or (SL-UAS). Due to size, power, and weight limitations it is unrealistic to apply… more
Abstract:Due to advances in technology and decreasing costs, LADAR systems are becoming a more common tactical element of Future Combat Systems. This presents a need for developing approaches and processes that optimally exploit the use of LADAR sensors in the battlefield environment. Models and… more
Abstract:Within the past decade, ballistic missiles have emerged as major threats to American and friendly armed forces. As of early 1998, at least 30 nations were known to have more than 10,000 ballistic missiles in their arsenals and the threat is growing daily. Several of these countries are also known to… more
Abstract:Under this Phase I proposal Areté proposes to research the feasibility of developing a small, light-weight, low power imaging system for use on a small TUAV for supporting environmental parameter retrieval algorithms in littoral missions. This research will include a detailed requirements analysis… more
Abstract:Passive electro-optical (EO) imaging of submerged submarines has been the subject of research for almost three decades. Previous efforts, which have focused on the use of passive, multi-spectral imaging methods to detect, classify, and localize submerged submarines, have been hampered by scene… more
Abstract:DDG 1000's Integrated Undersea Warfare system will employ high frequency sonar for floating MLO detection. This sensor responds to a variety of noise sources at the air-sea interface and typically cannot distinguish between different classes of floating objects. However, by cueing an EO/IR sensor… more
Abstract:Light reflected from the ocean surface is highly polarized, where the state of the polarization is dependent on the orientation of the ocean surface. By measuring the Stokes vector of the reflected light Areté Associates proposes to retrieve both the cross-look and the look components of the… more
Abstract:Areté Associates proposes to demonstrate a low-cost, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) electro-optical (EO) navigation sensor as a Target Detection Device (TDD) solution which offers several advantages over the RF sensors used in air-delivered munitions fuzes. Prototype sensor development and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Chronic, neuropathic pain is one of the most important unmet medical needs in the United States, affecting tens to hundreds of millions of people nationwide at some time during their lives.

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.
