Abstract:Fault Management (FM) is one of the key components of system autonomy. In order to guarantee FM effectiveness and control the cost, tools are required to automate fault-tree generation and updates based on design models specified in standardized design languages such as AADL. Accordingly, we… more
Abstract:Design, analysis, and assessment of multiple alternatives is important to ensuring the development and fielding of DoD systems that face increasingly dynamic and rapid changes in missions. New methods and tools are needed that compensate and recover from disruptions, adapt to dynamic environments,… more
Abstract:Many detectors - including solid-state particle detectors, microchannel plates, and photodiodes - output small current signals that require amplification and conversion to a voltage. Current-to-voltage converters (I/Vs) are widely utilized in experimental and commercial applications for this task.… more

Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Roughly one million Americans with inadequately controlled severe persistent asthma have a particularly high risk of exacerbations, hospitalizations, and death, and account for a per-patient health care burden exceeding12,000 annually. Bronchial thermoplasty (BT)… more
Abstract:As applications for radiation detection become more demanding, and in turn improvements are made in the technology of radiation detection, there is a need for high speed digital detector readout electronics to match these improvements. Specifically, full control over the on-line processing resources… more
Abstract:Semiconductor-based radiation detectors are routinely used for the detection, imaging, and spectroscopy of x-rays, gamma rays, and charged particles for applications in the areas of nuclear and medical physics, astrophysics, environmental remediation, nuclear nonproliferation, and homeland security.… more
Abstract:This SBIR project is to develop a novel Hemispherical and Dynamic Camera(HDC) with ultra-wide field of view and low geometric distortion. The novel technology we proposed would lead to ultra-compact, low-power, light weight, and high resolution hemispherical camera for EVAs. We successfully… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The physical world around us is three-dimensional (3D), yet most existing display systems can handle only two-dimensional (2D) images that lack the third dimension (depth) information. This fundamental restriction greatly limits human being's capability 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.
