Abstract:With ultrasound capabilities increasing, such as for detecting internal bleeding and bone fractures, ultrasound usage is expanding on and off the battlefield. During a typical ultrasound image-guided procedure, accurate manual manipulation of an ultrasonic probe with one hand while manipulating a… more
Abstract:Infoscitex proposes an innovative and robust solution to this topic, a software tool-HMM4D (Human Modeling and Monitoring in 4-Dimension) that can automatically identify and track a human subject, depict the true body shape, classify shape abnormalities, recognize human activities, and detect… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The fundamental goal of this program is to develop a point of care high fidelity, aptamer based assay for genital Chlamydia infections that allows fast and quantitative determination of levels of infection with differen
t sero-types of Chlamydia trachomatis. The… more
Abstract:A number of present and planned military satellite payloads simultaneously require significant waste heat mitigation, and high pointing accuracy. The challenge posed by these requirements stems from Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE)-induced changes in the size or geometry of the support… more
Abstract:Terrorists use a variety of messages, as well as a variety of communications media, to sway impressionable people to their viewpoint. The internet is a very effective emerging medium by which terrorists can spread their ideology. The internet allows propaganda to be disseminated in the form of blog… more
Abstract:U.S. troops are increasingly being equipped with advanced electronics equipment and communications systems that significantly enhance their operational capabilities. Unfortunately, the energy needed to power this equipment has forced the Warfighter to carry more batteries to accommodate the… more
Abstract:Pilots of today's high performance aircraft must simultaneously process not only the ever-changing visual field outside the cockpit and at the controls, but also the fluctuating gravitational vector and the vibrations of the airframe. Flight simulators are critical in preparing pilots to integrate… more
Abstract:Minimum signature propellants are listed as hazard class 1.3 explosives that consist of nitrocellulose/nitramine-type propellant compositions. Nano-sized particles can be incorporated into these minimum signature propellant formulations for the purpose of improving the specific impulse, increasing… 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:Individual protection is a high priority mission for the United States Army. Flame and heat resistant protective clothing systems are required to ensure the safety of military personnel in deployed and other hazardous environments. Its low flammability, self-extinguishing nature, and tendency not to… more
Abstract:Operation at low altitude renders Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV''s) susceptible to detection and countermeasures. Not only does this limit their role in covert missions, but their loss rate due to simple air defenses can be high. Expanded mission profiles are desired for UAV's where low probability… more
Abstract:Navy shipboard and cargo shipment and transfer operations generate large quantities of bulk waste and non-biodegradable waste products that (a) utilize valuable storage space aboard ship before it can be disposed of in port and (b) cannot be disposed of overboard within littoral waters because of… more
Abstract:The goal of our program is to create a device that can be used to aid in the training of proper execution of the Anti-G Straining Maneuver (AGSM). In the Phase I program, we completed human subjects recruitment, testing, and data analysis. We were able to note, to statistical significance, the… more
Abstract:In the future, Navy personnel will be expected to perform a variety of different tasks and missions in a highly linked, collaborative environment subject to frequent alerts and interruptions. This situation will be operable for all newer class surface ships, which have an expanded range of missions… more
Abstract:High morbidity and mortality from infection with F. psychrophilum, the causative agent of Coldwater Disease and rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) fry syndrome, have become significant problems for commercial and conservation aquaculture operations worldwide. First described in 1948 in the United… more
Abstract:The selected approach has been devised with the objective of fabricating an anti-tamper stretch wrap material that preserves the essential optical, mechanical, and thermal properties of existing wrap products, while providing a very effective and easily detectable method for tamper detection using… more
Abstract:A novel lithium battery has the potential to form the basis of a very high specific energy, rechargeable battery for shipboard wireless sensor systems. We propose to investigate a variety of approaches to develop this new battery design and optimize the cycle life, reliability, and safety. Our work… more
Abstract:This proposal presents a hardware design to implement a next-generation secure digital communication system that uses chaotic signals. The use of chaotic signals in digital communication systems offers several advantages. First, the noise-like properties of chaotic signals prevent them from being… more
Abstract:This NAVY Small Business Technology Transfer project is directed toward the development of a novel hydrogen generator that employs nanostructured metal foam catalysts. Special coating and form factor will also be employed to the hydrogen generating materials to ensure the safety of storage and… 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.
