Abstract:We propose to investigate the development of a training battery that will improve cognitive readiness for rapidly formed teams. We will define metrics to assess cognitive readiness, devise games that will engage trainees, and research one or more suitable military scenarios.
Abstract:Although team workload is a significant factor in assessments of team performance, there has been little work to isolate this from other factors. We propose a research effort to ultimately define the requirements and corresponding architecture for a measurement tool that will facilitate the… more
Abstract:Determining pilot intent is very complex. Human pilots rely on a myriad of information that includes radio communications, aircraft location and trajectory, airport information (standard landing/departure patterns, noise abatement procedures, etc.), weather, the capabilities of different aircraft… more
Abstract:The military"s ability to exploit streams of heterogeneous information sources has not kept pace with the enterprise"s ability to generate them. In order to make substantial progress in enhancing the warfighters"situational awareness, new approaches are required to automatically link… more
Abstract:As intelligence and sensor data acquisition technologies improve and expand, the difficulties of maintaining data integrity across vast amounts of data continue to plague researchers. Generally considered to be a problem of computational scalability, we also recognize that a much greater challenge… more
Abstract:We propose to address the growing challenge of information overload in network-centric information systems through the development of an agent-based framework that improves the warfighter"s awareness of critical information. In particular, we propose to enable adaptive information… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Within an Air Operations Center, planners working in the Master Air Attack Plan cell make crucial decisions to create the air plan for any given day. They are expected to complete the plan in part by pairing targeting or collection tasks with the available platforms and weapons. Any… more

There is an urgent need for improved genotoxicity assays for safety screening in drug development… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Chronic and infected wounds significantly affect the quality of life for millions of US citizens and are associated with increased risk of complications including the devastating consequence of amputation. As of 2006, infections of diabetic foot ulcers resulted… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this Type 2 Competitive Renewal SBIR application to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) is to conduct a phase I/II clinical trial to investigate the safety and earlyefficacy of a novel antimicrobial living… more
Abstract:In vitro skin models have shown excellent potential for the evaluation of acute skin irritation. However, the current systems lack the ability to discriminate between mild and strong irritants and require labor-intensive protocols that limit test throughput. To address the three critical limitations… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The primary objective of this project is to build on prior Phase 1 research to improve product sensitivity properties, to refine and test modifications of the Origami Male Condom 1 (OMC 1), and develop a more consumer-acceptable device exclusively for… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a novel low-cost and safe approach to synthesis electroactive polymers (EAPs). Currently the EAPs are produced with a traditional direct copolymerization process using an expensive and dangerous monomer. The process has the danger… more
Abstract:Capacitors are critical components in power modulator systems for radio frequency accelerator technology, in power electronics in electric vehicles, wind energy, and photovoltaic panels, and in directed energy weapon systems. Current capacitors have low energy density and occupy 25-50% volume of the… more
Abstract:We propose to develop polymer capacitor film with antiferroelectric behavior by combining a high dielectric constant polymer with antiferroelectric ceramic particles. Special processing techniques will be developed to achieve 3-D structure to enhance the dielectric performance and the dielectric… more
Abstract:Modern pulsed power systems and power electronics demand high energy density, high reliability, and fast discharge speed capacitors that cannot be fabricated with commercially available dielectric materials. Current electrostatic capacitors usually have an energy density below 2 J/cc due to the… 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.
