The work effort will 1) develop a capability to… more
Abstract:A significant maintenance problem is to prescribe the best corrective action for a problem; thus requiring a system to be capable of reasoning about a history of symptoms and corrective actions. Considerable time and cost savings could occur if maintainers were provided with the best corrective… more
Abstract:The goal of this research is to extend TMODS (Terrorist Modus Operandi Detection System), that has been funded by DARPA¿s EELD (Evidence Extraction and Link Discovery) and Genoa 2, and TIA programs. TMODS uses terrorist network analysis (TNA) to build the representation for abnormal social networks… more
Abstract:This effort develops automatic detection of malicious binary code based on syntax-independent logical control flow patterns. Control flow patterns yield specific detectable signatures that can be extracted from binary code. Because they are based on functional control flow, these signatures also… more
Abstract:This effort will develop a capability for automated modification of binary code based on canonical algorithm patterns of control flows. Since these methods are based on control flow, they are OS and language independent. The methods offer a path towards building operating systems that are… more

Development of an assay for the detection of O. tsutsugamushi that is rapid, accurate, field-usable and soldier-friendly is… more
Abstract:The first objective of Phase II is to validate the ready-to-use DNA-based dengue diagnostics kit under laboratory conditions using culture-derived dengue viruses as well as clinically confirmed dengue infected samples from different geographic origins. These prototype products will be developed for… more
Abstract:The Future Combat System (FCS) military diesel engine propulsion systems tribological considerations are predicted to be compromised primarily by the temperature capability of the lubricating fluid. Thermal oxidation resulting in lubricant work in rigid condition breakdown and formation of deposits… more
Abstract:Mastitis, an infection of the milk-producing glands of dairy cows, is a $5 billion problem worldwide. The current, on-site method used to diagnose mastitis, and to monitor its incidence, is to count the total number of "body cells" (white cells and other body cells) present in the milk. There has… 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.
