Abstract:Virtual and constructive simulation environments provide powerful practice for warfighters because they offer realistic events to which the warfighters can respond. To use these environments for effective training, they must provide pedagogically sound training experiences which incorporate measures… more
Abstract:Aviation mishaps in the Navy and Marine Corps cost $677 million, and were responsible for 40 fatalities in 2005 despite the significant training resources expended by the Navy (Naval Safety Center Annual Review, 2005). These mishaps are thoroughly investigated, but their findings usually fail to… more
Abstract:Repetitive crimes, such as the production of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) or the supplying of illegal drugs, present a growing challenge to society. Physical structures that can support these crimes provide potentially important invariants. The crimes must be situated somewhere, and the… more
Abstract:In the battle to "win the hearts and minds" of civilians close to conflict, the U.S. armed services have had difficulty operating and interacting with cultures different from our own. This seems largely due to a lack of cultural intelligence. Specifically, the difficulty lies in understanding how… more

Abstract:This sensitive insect sensor will run 24 hours per day, every day that cargo is in transit, attracting insects to a containment surface where they remain for immediate detection and identification when inspectors gain entry to the container. Flying insects will be waiting, ready to be counted on… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I research will deveop and commercialize a robust, continuous culture production system for rotifers (Brachionus rotundiformis; s-type). The inability to supply microalgal, zooplankton and rotifers feeds cost-effectively and consistently continues to be… more
Abstract:The use of nanoparticles has increased in manufacturing, industry, and commercial products over the past two decades. As a result, governmental agencies, industry, and academia worldwide have formed advisory groups to evaluate exposure and toxicity issues surrounding the potential adverse effects of… more
Abstract:Recreational saltwater fishing is a major industry in coastal areas of the United States. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service estimated that saltwater anglers spent $8.4 billion in 2001 on fishing trips and supplies. In many communities this type of "wildlife tourism" is the lifeblood of the… more
Abstract:Aqwest proposes to develop novel, high-performance thermal energy storage (TES) technologies and a TES integration concept for thermal management (TM) of directed energy weapons (DEW). In particular, we will develop a packed bed (PB) and sorption-based (SB) TES concepts, and a TES integration into… more
Abstract:Aqwest proposes to develop a novel edge-pumped composite disk laser amplifier for ultra-short pulse (USP) lasers offering operation at high-average power (HAP) at near-diffraction limited beam quality (BQ). The project will produce an amplifier for USP laser with the following major benefits to the… more
Abstract:High-brightness (HB) light emitting diodes (LEDs) have demonstrated promise for general illumination in commercial and household applications. These systems offer up to 75% savings in electric power consumption over conventional lighting systems. However, realizing the full potential of this new and… more
Abstract:The objective of this work is to develop a low cost 6 DOF body tracking system to monitor the orientations of an occupants and pedestrians as well as vehicle kinematics in vehicular impact tests. This tracker system can be standalone or part of a subsystem that can communicate with other trackers… more
Abstract:For many communication applications the demand for more bandwidth is a never ending problem. Military system applications often can exceed commercial demands by an order of magnitude or more as SIGINT and IMINT data collection and transmission are keys to our National Security. Fiber optic systems… more
Abstract:ArchieMD, Inc. proposes to develop a framework for rapidly creating military-relevant micro-games. The utility of the framework will be validated through the creation of a micro-game targeted at reducing leishmaniasis among military personnel deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. These games SCORM… more
Abstract:ArchieMD, Inc. proposes to develop a 3-D Multimedia Battlefield Trauma Training Kit. During Phase II we will develop comprehensive modules for treatment of thoracic and abdominal injuries. We propose to integrate visual 3-D computer models, video recording of the actual treatments, and an… more
Abstract:This project combines 3D computer graphics and gaming technology to provide a nonlinear, immersive biology simulation ca lled OrganiSims. OrganiSims will be designed to convey highlevel biology concepts in a manner that engages high school students, and unify biology concepts while illustrating how… more
Abstract:ArchieMD, Inc. and Medical Education Technologies, Inc. (METI) propose to integrate ArchieMD's multimedia medical education technology with METI's patient simulator technology using mixed reality goggles. Using mixed reality goggles, 3D imagery will be superimposed over the view of the user. This… more
Abstract:Orthopedic injuries have comprised a majority of combat injuries in most recent conflicts. These orthopedic injuries are significantly different than those experienced in the civilian sector, making it difficult for military orthopedic surgeons to develop and sustain battlefield-relevant surgical… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase II Project combines 3-D computer graphics and gaming technology to provide a non-linear, immersive learning environment for science education in the human anatomy and physiology domain. Modern computer-simulations present a unique ability to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall aim for this Small Business Innovative Research project is to develop and evaluate a web-based 3D interactive Virtual Emergency Medical Technician-Basic Training Program. ArchieMD's goal is to develop a prod
uct that will use 3D interactive… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In order for the nation to remain competitive in the life science industries, the nation must produce an adequate number of students who pursue degrees in life sciences. Recent years have seen a disturbing drop in Unite
d States' student interest in pursuing… more
Abstract:Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are growing in popularity due to their high performance capabilities and reprogrammable nature well-suited for development of specific high-speed processing applications. However, the design process for FPGA implementation is time-consuming with multiple… more
Abstract:In order to provide the best protection to our armed forces, and to our country, we need to know where our opponents are, and what they are doing. This includes tracking their movements over long periods of time, and across large areas such that multiple sensor and seeker systems would need to be… more
Abstract:The inter-domain routing protocol BGP (Border Gateway Protocol), was designed for statically configured land-based networks which experience infrequent topology changes.

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.
