Abstract:Navy command and control (C2) personnel must make decisions about events and activities they are not able to directly perceive. They must interpret information represented on an interface or over a communication device into a mental picture of the relevant environment - a mental model of the current… more
Abstract:Ensuring operational readiness requires not only assisting individuals and team leaders in monitoring their cognitive readiness, but also providing useful strategies and tools to address areas targeted for improvement. To address this critical need, our overall goal for this SBIR research project is… more
Abstract:SA Technologies will develop a series of prototype interfaces supporting the needs of Navy personnel engaged in Undersea Warfare (USW) and Antisubmarine Warfare (ASW) tasks. These interface designs are intended to be implemented by the Navy in the USW Decision Support System (USW-DSS). The… more
Abstract:SEAS incorporates multiple measures into a single, integrated toolset, and includes objective and subjective measures of performance, workload and situation awareness. Using an iterative method of development, this project will result in a fully functional toolset that can be flexibly expanded and… more
Abstract:The design of the Common Crashworthy Troop Seat has been completed under previous contracts. This effort will provide for the building of prototype hardware, and the static and dynamic testing of the seating system.
Abstract:The Navy"s overall objective is to develop and integrate a hypoxia monitoring system for naval pilots. In Phase I, Safe sought to assess the technical feasibility of the proposed Hypoxia Warning Kit (HAWK) by employing non-invasive sensors that could be integrated into the pilot"s MBU-24/P… more

Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Phase I Obesity is a growing and increasingly serious public health problem that disproportionately affects low-income communities of color. Low-income areas and communities of color tend to have less access to grocerystores and other retail stores that sell… more
Abstract:Phase Four of the Missile Defense Agency"s Phased Adaptive Approach will include the deployment in 2020 of a land based Aegis missile to provide early intercept capability, called Next Generation Aegis Missile (NGAM). The first step in the NGAM development is the Technology Development Phase… more
Abstract:The programmatic objective of the program is to demonstrate risk reduction and provide prototype hardware for consideration by the prime contractor for inclusion in the NGAM configuration and Trade Study program. The technical objective will be to demonstrate, through hardware fabrication and test,… more
Abstract:Current LAU Launchers (LAU-68 and LAU-61) are constructed from aluminum tubes and bulkheads but are too heavy and create too much drag for current fixed and rotary wing UAV platforms. SDC has proposed to redesign the LAU 61 and LAU 68 launchers with advanced light weight composite materials in order… more
Abstract:As part of the Ballistic Missile Defense Review (BMDR) policy, the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) has enacted a Phased Adaptive Approach (PAA) for BMD interceptors over the next 10 years. Phase 4 of the PAA will include the deployment in 2020 of a land based Aegis missile to provide early intercept… more
Abstract:Missile canisters are often an overlooked aspect of missile launch systems and there is a push to increase technology in this area, specifically to decrease weight and cost as well as increase performance. SDC was awarded a Phase I program to provide the NAVY with advanced composite materials and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The recent call for elimination of malaria caused by Plasmodium falciparum and eventual eradication of all malaria has focused attention on this disease, which is responsible for hundreds of millions of cases and a million deaths annually. An ideal tool for… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There are gt300 million cases and ~1 million deaths p.a. caused by Plasmodium falciparum (Pf) malaria.

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.
