Abstract:The main challenges of treating PTSD include getting patients into treatment, keeping them engaged, and motivating them to complete out-of-session take-home work. SAGA (Sequential Art via Game Assistance) addresses these challenges by providing PTSD patients an engaging and educational game… more
Abstract:Transportable energy storage systems for grid applications serve several functions including integration and intermittency mitigation of renewables, improving grid stability and reliability by providing new capacity that can be deployed quickly and they provide a cost effective way to balance the… more
Abstract:High Energy accelerators and colliders are becoming increasingly compact and switching devices such as thyratron tubes are replaced by solid state switches such as IGBT, IGCT and MOSFET devices, operating at voltages of 3KV to 6.0+KV with peak currents of 0.5-6.0+KA. Klystron modulators built… more
Abstract:Signal Innovations Group proposes a hierarchical Bayesian approach for non-linear dimensionality reduction that addresses three key challenges: learning a reversible mapping from a high-dimensional observed space to a low-dimensional embedded space, learning the dimension of the embedded space, and… more
Abstract:The detection and tracking of dismounts and the identification of threatening dismounts are critical challenges for ensuring mission success and troop safety when conducting tactical vehicle operations in hostile environments. Vehicle operators must focus on multiple tasks simultaneously: … more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Current automatic target recognition (ATR) training processes require expensive data collections or extensive, high fidelity target modeling and validation whose costs and lead times will limit the ongoing sustainability of ATR target databases. Radar based systems for combat… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This program will develop salient feature analysis and saliency cueing capabilities for SAR-based exploitation and demonstrate this technology with operationally relevant data and classifiers. This saliency technology will immediately enable the development of exploitable, robust,… more
Abstract:We propose a comprehensive and systematic contingency plan generation framework to deal with lost communication in UAVs. ATC regulations are explicitly incorporated into our system. Our proposed framework was motivated by our recent work for the Naval Air Station at Patuxent River. In should be… more
Abstract:We propose a portable data acquisition and prognostic system that contains both hardware and software with several innovative ideas. First, our hardware system consists of a high speed data acquisition card and a portable lunchbox PC. The portable lunchbox PC has advanced prognostics algorithms and… more
Abstract:Signal Systems Corporation (SSC) proposes developing its MEDEVAC Active Noise Cancellation Acoustic Pillow (MANCAP) featuring active noise cancellation (ANC) and passive noise reduction measures to create a quiet zone around injured personnel"s ears during evacuations in and around noisy… more
Abstract:Signal Systems Corporation proposes to use our Coherent Multi-static Acoustic Processing (CMAP) software to process the received acoustic sonobuoy data. The CMAP algorithms and software are an advanced coherent signal processing chain that is the baseline for the P-3/P-8A Multi-static Active… more
Abstract:The proposed effort develops and evaluates features exploiting the swim bladder resonance observed in broadband echoes from fish for automatic screening, reducing mid-frequency active sonar clutter. Real world data from shallow water is used to develop and evaluate features for discriminating… 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.
