Abstract:We propose to design, develop, build and fly the elements of an orbiting large-baseline sparse array antenna system (RFSAS) using a cluster of cubesats. RFSAS will function effectively as an antenna with aperture adjustable from several meters to tens of kilometers, providing a range of sensing… more
Abstract:Law enforcement and intelligence organizations require an evidence-collection device that can attach to a computer, remove any password protection, access data without corrupting it, and reset the password so that the computer's owner will not know that any data has been accessed. However, there is… more
Abstract:Small scale laboratory technologies to treat experimental laboratory derived rocket propellant waste are required to enable sustained operations of the research facility, while avoiding open burn/open detonation (OBOD) process currently used to dispose of these materials. Successful development of… more
Abstract:Due to the remarkable benefits provided by 802.16 Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) networks, military interest in such technology has consistently grown. However, preplanned base station locations with tall towers and directionally-optimized antennas are not tactically useful. Therefore, in order for… more
Abstract:Intracranial pressure, ICP, is arguably the single most important parameter used clinically to manage brain injury and long-term brain damage. Existing methods to record ICP are either invasive or require large equipment incompatible with a field deployable system. Our work combines two highly… more
Abstract:The goal of this program is to develop an ante-mortem diagnostic assay for transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE) or prion disease. In Phase I, Infoscitex Corporation (IST) in collaboration with Colorado State University (CSU) set out to develop DN
Abstract:Insurgencies have existed throughout history and will continue to provide a problem for our forces abroad, as they are now in the Middle East. Prior measures taken against insurgencies would be intolerable today. As a result, today's approaches are more based in intelligence than force. This… more
Abstract:With the continued improvements in body armor, and the disturbing increase in explosive offensives in modern combat, more of our wounded soldiers are surviving their injuries and there has been a considerable increase in the military amputee population. Modern prosthetics have improved… more
Abstract:Infoscitex proposes to develop U-BASE, a platform enabling fully autonomous operation of unmanned systems for multiple missions and extended durations. U-BASE integrates autonomous recovery, refuel and launch of UAV's into a single system. The technologies employed by U-BASE are applicable to a… more
Abstract:Novel class IV building materials are needed to efficiently protect military structures from electromagnetic interference (EMI), blast, and emerging adaptive threats. Fiber-reinforced polymer matrix composites could be modified for this purpose by incorporating additives that can autonomously… more
Abstract:Application of electro-active polymer (EAP) to critical aerodynamic surfaces of Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) is proposed, in order to manage the boundary layer. EAP offers a means to achieve distributed actuation and can be readily conformed to the shape of an airfoil. At low Reynolds number-flight,… more
Abstract:Although uncooled infrared imaging technology has made remarkable progress in the last two decades in resolution and sensitivity, a major limitation of 2-D infrared focal plane arrays is the lack of true on-chip spectral discrimination. Multi-spectral detection capabilities at the pixel level are… more
Abstract:During cold weather operations tasks requiring manual dexterity can become significantly more difficult as the drop in temperature causes capillaries in the fingers to rapidly contract, decreasing skin blood flow and leading to stiff, sore fingers. IST addressed this issue in Phase I by developing… more
Abstract:This proposal addresses the space optic community's need for an optical bonding material that demonstrates superior stability in the harsh space environment. Adhesives used in space must exhibit near-zero degassing, tolerate drastic temperature changes and be hardened to ionizing sources of… more
Abstract:An inductive power transfer approach is proposed, in which a backpack-deployed central power source will deliver power omni-directionally to battery-powered devices also borne by the Warfighter. Charge will be maintained in batteries without removal from the devices they are powering and without the… more
Abstract:The military is investigating flexible thermal architectures that enable a tactical satellite bus to support a range of operational needs. In response, the team of Infoscitex Corp., the University of Pennsylvania's microfluidics/nanofluidics lab, and Lockheed-Martin Space Systems Company propose to… more
Abstract:Current simulation-based training environments lack the ability to rapidly and effectively communicate dynamic terrain changes across distributed virtual environments. The inability to propagate dynamically altered terrain in a distributed training scenario has detrimental effects on overall mission… more
Abstract:An electric motor is proposed that will achieve a power density of 5 hp/lbm and an efficiency greater than 95%, when delivering 7 hp of mechanical power at a speed of 8400 rpm. This capability, not available from current electric motors, is achieved by arranging high energy-product permanent magnets… more
Abstract:Human social networks describe the social interactions among individuals and groups. The interactions of a human social network can be simple or complex, and the interactions among nodes can change depending on the social context. The ability to understand and accurately predict human behaviors has… more
Abstract:Infoscitex proposes an innovative and feasible solution to Dynamic 3D Human Shape Modeling for Intention Prediction from Video Imagery. We will develop a tool to quickly and automatically detect, track, and extract a subject of interest from video imagery. Using our knowledge and experience of… more
Abstract:Bonding agents (BAs) are critical components of solid propellants that facilitate processing by improving interfacial interaction between the surfaces of oxidizer grains and the binder resin. The BA cures with the binder to produce void-free solid propellants that exhibit desirable storage and… more
Abstract:Further improvement in gas-turbine engine performance requires development of hot-section structural materials capable of functioning at unprecedentedly high temperatures. SiC fiber-reinforced SiC ceramic-matrix composites (CMCs) have high melting points, but are thermodynamically unstable in… 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.
