Haptics is an exciting field, but… more
Abstract:An adaptive flight control concept is proposed to better compensate for disturbances on the rotorcraft due to ship airwake effects and the moving ship deck during helicopter or tiltrotor shipboard operations. The flight controller could ultimately be used on a fully autonomous system or in a… more
Abstract:Because flutter can lead to catastrophic failure of the aircraft structure, reliable prediction of the aeroelastic behavior of the aircraft is vitally important to provide information about the boundaries of the flight envelope outside which the aircraft is susceptible to flutter. In spite of major… more
Abstract:A simulation tool will be developed to study multiple pursuit/evasion problems. The approach will be hier-archical, with a central command element that communicates with sensor components to process surveil-lance modes, implement target tracking, direct interceptor assignments, and command launch… more
Abstract:The Shared Reconnaissance Pod (SHARP) provides the U.S. Navy with the latest digital tactical reconnaissance capability. NAVAIR wishes to make SHARP data available to a larger number of surface terminals, thus expanding the SHARP Close Air Support mission capability. Coupled with concurrent… more
Abstract:Military operations in littoral and riverine environments are increasingly important, and unmanned underwater riverine craft (UURC) are likely to play a key role in such operations providing surveillance, delivering payloads (including human divers), etc. Operation in the riverine environment,… more
Abstract:Model-based machinery diagnostic and prognostic techniques depend upon high-quality mathematical models of the plant. Modeling uncertainties and errors decrease system sensitivity to faults and decrease the accuracy of failure prognoses. However, the behavior of many physical systems changes… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall goal of the proposed RandD program is to develop and demonstrate a new approach for objectively measuring the functional impact of pain, and changes thereto, during the course of a patient's treatment. The a
pproach is intended to be a supplement to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Due to improvements in obstetrical and neonatal care, and an associated decrease in perinatal mortality, as well as increased risks associated with in vitro fertilization procedures, the number of preterm (lt 37 weeks p
ostmenstrual age) very low birth weight (lt… more
Abstract:For manned aircraft, loss of control during flight is a major cause for aviation accidents; for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), the dangers associated with upset recovery are greater due to (a) the increased likelihood that a smaller aircraft will experience an upset in the first place, and (b) the… more
Abstract:The remote identification of surfaced swimmers in a harbor environment is a critical requirement for a comprehensive waterside security system. This requirement can be clearly divided into detection and classification objectives. Detection in this context means identifying the presence of a target… more
Abstract:Under this SBIR effort, NAVAIR wishes to "maximize the effective use of TAC RECCE imagery data for use in multi-sensor fusion and target cuing" by supplementing the legacy SHARP system with a FORCEnet-compatible communication capability. The expanded FORCEnet functionality will greatly increase the… more
Abstract:The proposed SBIR Phase I plan of research seeks to develop and demonstrate an integrated architecture designed to compensate for combined propulsion, airframe, effector, and structural damage caused by catastrophic system failure or an intentionally hostile act. Whereas prior damage-adaptive… more
Abstract:A prototype Rapid Mission Planning and Operations software tool is being developed in the Phase I ef-fort. It is proposed here to continue this effort, greatly maturing the software tool and establishing its benefits in a real-world, high-fidelity mission planning demonstration. We refer to this… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall goal of this multi-phase SBIR research effort is to create a PDA-based instrument for the comprehensive assessment of chronic pain (i.e., the location, quality, intensity, distress, interference, and beliefs

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.
