Abstract:Intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs) hold the promise of dramatically increasing the cost effectiveness of training. However, one contributor to the per-lesson cost effectiveness of ITSs is the significant effort that goes into creating instructional material. ITSs in many ways shift the costs of… more
Abstract:Current conflicts increasingly require the military to win the support the local population and this starts by understanding their environment and building relationships with them. In this proposal, the team of SoarTech, Vcom3D and Proxima Intercultural propose a novel training architecture in… more
Abstract:The potential for force multiplication in Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UASs) rises with the degree to which they can be"neglected"by human controllers and operators. There is currently a great deal of human cognitive attention required to manage UAS assets safely and effectively,… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Demand for Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) within the U.S. Military has significantly increased over the past decade, including a demand for Micro-Air Vehicles (MAVs). However, the increased use of these systems has been hindered by the lack of natural interfaces for controlling them.… more
Abstract:Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) currently deployed on the battlefield are driven with Operator Control Units (e.g., joystick or point-and-click interface), which requires the full attention of an operator. This means the operator cannot concentrate on maintaining situational awareness, security, or… more
Abstract:Current Unmanned Air Systems (UAS) require a great deal of specialized training and experience to use effectively. Furthermore, their use is dominated by a paradigm of control in which a highly trained operator is giving very precise, low-level commands to a UAS. As UAS become more autonomous, they… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Red Flag is a multinational exercise featuring aerial combat flight operations. Due to the complexity and scope of these exercises, participants require a significant amount of spin-up in advance of their arrival. Specifically, there are a number of logistical and safety related that a… more
Abstract:Army helicopter pilots are inundated with information in the cockpit, and more is coming. But simply providing more information is not always the answer. With new technology constantly pushing more information into the cockpit, there is an ever-increasing demand for smarter management of that… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose to translate a successful, efficacious, CASAC-approved overdose prevention, recognition and response training curriculum (S.K.O.O.P-Skills and Knowledge on Overdose Prevention) utilized in NY State into an online Computer-Assisted Instructional (CAI)… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Drug Courts reflect the cutting edge of new, innovative treatments for substance abuse. A text messaging system integrated as part of the Drug Court's treatment program holds the promise of improving treatment outcomesand has positive market potential.… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Availability of high quality, large area gallium nitride (GaN) single crystal substrates is one of the most outstanding issues for III-V nitride materials. Today's GaN device processes typically employ HVPE grown on sapphire and silicon carbide substrates, requiring elaborate buffer… more
Abstract:Solid State Scientific Corporation (SSSC) is pleased to propose the design of a single-board, integrated Hostile Fire Indication (HFI) system with the nominal size, weight, and power constraints for operation as an adjunct sensor within the AN/AVR-2B(V) Laser Warning Set. Work on Phase I will… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a worldwide health problem, and its treatment and prevention remain a major challenge. Existing therapies are only partially effective and have serious side effects. No vaccine is currently available. RNA interference (RNAi) offers a… more
Abstract:The gray whale migration generates many hours of video that must be examined carefully to identify passing whales and get an accurate count of their numbers. Unfortunately, humans lack the necessary attention span. To solve this problem, a detector will be developed that can process hours of video… more
Abstract:Throughout history, the ability of a fighting force to respond to battlefield casualties, perform triage, and evacuate their wounded to a treatment facility has been crucial to the long-term success of the force. Until now, the ability of medical personn

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.
