Abstract:ABSTRACT: Propagation Research Associates, Inc. (PRA) teamed with FLIR (previously ICx) proposes to leverage the work performed under a previous Phase II contract that involved clutter mitigation for ground based ground moving target radars. PRA plans to integrate automatic target recognition… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The combined effects of data overload, source variability, and the effects of a wide variety of cognitive biases add enormous complexity to the already-complex task of intelligence analysis. Given the criticality of the analysis task, it is imperative that effective tools be developed… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The development of persistent wide area imagery surveillance systems for the Department of Defense is a huge step forwards for the Air Force intelligence capabilities. By providing continuous imagery updates across a broad field of view, these systems are expected to support both faster… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Gaining tactical advantage, ensuring safety, and completing missions are the main objectives of military operations. Accomplishing these objectives depends on the ability of military personnel to make quick, effective decisions. Systems must be developed that will provide users with… more
Abstract:The objective for this Phase II effort is to leverage our Phase I findings to develop a training solution for network operations (NetOps) Soldiers. Our proposed solution, the Situation Awareness Virtual instruction Architecture for NetOps Training (SAVANT), seeks to address gaps in existing training… more
Abstract:Ensuring operational readiness requires not only assisting individuals and team leaders in monitoring their cognitive readiness, but also providing useful strategies and tools to address areas targeted for improvement. To address this critical need, our overall goal for this SBIR research project is… 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.
