We will develop a concept of operations for the collaborative control… more
Abstract:Warfighters face overwhelmingly complex and uncertain situations in which they must make life-and- death decisions. Today"s information systems often overwhelm decision makers still further. Attention to results of cognitive science can contribute to the design of a new generation of systems… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The ultimate goal of this proposed effort is to develop a distributed, intelligent, cooperative AFSCN mission planning and scheduling system (DICAMPSS) to implement an improved scheduling process and provide greater sharing and availability of information and knowledge. To realize this… more
Abstract:Intelligence analysts need help managing a barrage of tasks and flood of information while overcoming cognitive limitations. That help must respond to their individual time-varying needs and context. Challenges include (1) sensing analysts"situations; (2) tracking their interests and needs;… more
Abstract:The ultimate goal of this proposed effort is to improve the ability to determine suspicious radar track behavior and suspicious areas to focus attention on. We propose a framework for representing the knowledge and human-quality reasoning required to process large quantities of radar data,… more
Abstract:Army doctrine calls for pushing decision-making to lower echelons where possible. Improving technology will allow small combat units to access and exploit battlefield systems. Yet at company and below, units lack staff that can master such systems and maintain expertise through full-time use. … more
Abstract:Complex skin defects, including burns and trauma, represent a major medical problem affecting both military and civilian populations. In recent military engagements, burns account for approximately 5% of combat casualties. Furthermore, approximately 1.25 million Americans each year require medical… more
Abstract:Currently, the Expeditionary Fire Support System (EFSS) resupply doctrine is hazardous to Marines and the transport aircraft (MV-22 or CH-53) as it potentially exposes Marines and aircraft to enemy hostilities for a significant duration of time as 120mm mortar ammo is unloaded manually from the… more
Abstract:The innovative methodologies proposed in this STTR Phase 1 project will enhance Loci-STREAM which is a high performance, high fidelity simulation tool already being used at NASA for a variety of CFD applications. This project will address critical needs in order to enable fast and accurate… more
Abstract:This project will finalize the development of an advanced warning system for structural collapse for both new and existing buildings, particularly
during structural fires. The project will utilize a non-contact ultrasonic sensor originally developed under NIST SBIR Topic 9.14 and extensively… more
Abstract:Quantifying oceanic CO2 uptake and ocean acidification and understanding their impact on global climate and ocean ecology are key goals of NOAA’s climate change research programs. NOAA’s request for Development of a long-term Lagrangian pH and pCO2 drifter (SBIR Subtopic 8.3.1C) aims to address… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease affecting 2% of the world population. It is characterized by immune infiltrates in lesions and hyperkeratosis, and can be partially remediated with prescription medicines, such as topical retinoids. Despite their great … more
Abstract:The negative-electron-affinity (NEA) photocathodes which produce polarized electrons are a vital component of electron accelerators such as that at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) and DoE Jefferson Lab. Future systems, such as the International Linear Collider (ILC), will require a… more

Abstract:SVT Associates proposes an novel type II superlattice structure to extend the cutoff wavelength and CBIRD SL photo diode structure with unipolar barriers to suppress dark current of SL detectors grown on GaSb substrate. This InAs/GaSb superlattice material system is capable of infrared detection in… more
Abstract:The development of an APC Nb3Sn superconductor with tin-pin artificial pinning centers by the proposed approach in the Phase I program, is anticipated to have a significant impact on cost and performance in applications for undulator magnets. The overall technical approach for the Phase I project… more
Abstract:IR transparent windows and domes on aircrafts and missiles often provide other functionality, such as conductivity, through the use of coatings or metallic grids. For visible applications, conductive coatings like indium tin oxide are available; however, these coatings become highly absorbing at… more
Abstract:Surmet"s Sinter/HIP process for producing transparent spinel has demonstrated material of much higher strength than has been achieved through our competitor"s hot press/HIP process. However, our spinel material has also been plagued with"inclusions"which are optically undesirable… more
Abstract:After extensive exposure to adverse environments such as sandstorms, rain, and fog, germanium (Ge) Infrared Search and Track (IRST) domes develop pits and surface damage, which accumulates over time eventually reducing the average transmission to below acceptable limits. New domes are quite costly… more
Abstract:SURVICE Engineering is proposing an innovative and reliable combination of cutting-edge technologies currently employed in SURVICE"s core business operations for the post-IED hull inspection toolset, which will allow forward-deployed Marines to rapidly collect all relevant data for the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: SURVICE Engineering is proposing to continue development of the fully autonomous, large-volume, hybrid optical hardware and software metrology technology demonstrated in Phase I, achieving cost-effective, high-speed, and high-resolution non contact inspection of machined detail parts and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The use of electronic systems within a military aircraft requires shielded enclosures to mitigate radio frequency (RF) interference from external electric equipment. The proposed approach is to reduce the weight of the shielded enclosure while maintaining the shielding effectiveness of… 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.
