QSI's TEAMS Software suite is a leading facilitator diagnostic and FM modeling, and performing various FM-related functions. Through this effort, QSI proposes to introduce… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Electromechanical Actuation (EMA) systems are becoming preferred choice in aircraft applications owing to their response time, power consumption, heat load, peak power, and weight related advantages. However, employing EMAs in critical flight control applications demands reliability… more
Abstract:Optic nerve and retinal diseases profoundly impact quality of life and overall health care burden. Demetrios Vavvas and colleagues at the Mass Eye and Ear Infirmary (MEEI) have revealed a critical redundant role of mediators of both apoptosis and necrosisin cell death in the neuroretina and optic… more
Abstract:The DoD management has duly recognized the scope of the energy problem in its operations and has undertaken several initiatives on renewable and alternative energy technologies. However, there are still energy issues that need to be addressed. According the DoD SBIR 2011.3 solicitation, more than… 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:In the northeast there is an under-fulfilled year round demand for fresh, locally grown produce. The demand is partially measured by the steady growth (13% per year nationally) of farmers & #39; markets since 1995. Urban centers (cities) in the industrial northeast have a large inventory of… more
Abstract:We propose to develop a collaborative control user interface that will enable operators to work more effectively with highly autonomous vehicles by engaging in a dialog to exchange ideas, ask questions, and resolve differences. We will develop a concept of operations for the collaborative control… more
Abstract:Sonalysts proposes to develop a Mission Planning-Evaluation Tool (MP-ET) to support submarine Commanding Officers"risk and operational assessment of mission plans. Our approach is to extend the current APB-13 Mission Planning Application (MPA) by using a fuzzy logic approach. This method… more
Abstract:Sonalysts will develop and demonstrate a game-based adaptive training system for AN/BLQ-10 ESM operators that extends the approach developed for Passive Narrowband Sonar operators in the APB-13 Narrowband Adaptive Trainer. The game elements include a student avatar whose appearance reflects student… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Adapting our next-generation game engine to the complex realm of today"s multi-role fighters, we will create a high-fidelity, easily-deployable flight simulator to provide a training and rehearsal environment for next-generation multi-role aircraft. Built on COTS hardware, the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The ultimate goal of this Phase II SBIR is to provide the Air Force with a game-based approach to train Air Force maintenance personnel.

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.
