This system will include a combination of advanced graphic user interfaces, automated control and image processing. The system will be based entirely on the… more
Abstract:Networks, such as the Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), are an interconnection of multiple networks in a complex mesh that require continuous real-time monitoring and management. As with any network, issues arise in ESnet that need to be analyzed and resolved in a timely manner. The issues in ESnet… more
Abstract:Nematodes cause $8 billion in damage to U.S. crops and $80 billion worldwide. Anthurium, a cutflower and potted plant specialty crop, is very susceptible to nematodes, necessitating continued grower reliance on toxic chemical controls that face the threat of being taken off the market at any time.… more
Abstract:Intensification of resource use and other global changes have resulted in emergence of a variety of new diseases and increasing virulence of existing diseases, like Salmonella. These pests and disease organisms are ever more efficiently spread by traffic in goods and people throughout the world, and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The compression of hyperspectral data is made more difficult by the requirement that the compressed data adequately serve a variety of diverse applications. Lossy compression methods will be evaluated with the requirements for tactical HSI analysis in mind. We propose to investigate two… more
Abstract:Musculoskeletal injuries of the lower legs, as a result of strenuous and prolonged walking and running activities, are a primary problem for Army soldiers and other military populations. This proposal is focused on demonstrating the feasibility of a patent-pending orthotic device pioneered by… more
Abstract:National intelligence requirements for Space Situational Awareness (SSA) are hindered by the lack of a reliable capability to image satellites during the daytime hours with optical sensors. Presently, most optical SSA observations are conducted during terminator conditions i.e., morning or evening… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The accurate tracking of resident space objects (RSO)s depends on the rapid estimation of orbits using the knowledge gained from sparsely sampled observations of satellites under the influence of interacting gravitational, solar radiation pressure and atmospheric drag effects. While there… more
Abstract:There is worldwide interest in the commercialization of energy efficient, environmentally friendly, hydrogen fuel cell powered vehicles and devices. One of the key challenges in transitioning fuel cell technology to the marketplace is the development of suitable onboard hydrogen storage solutions.… more
Abstract:Apple snail, (Pomacea canaliculata), a highly invasive pest affecting wetland crops in 18 countries including the U.S., is listed as one of the 100 Worst Global Invaders. One study showed that due to its voracious appetite, present value damage from the snail could cost Philippine rice production as… more
Abstract:In this proposal, the team of Archinoetics and UCI define a program of research and development to develop a data collection and analysis system for human performance measurement that is (1) inexpensive, (2) modular, (3) easily extensible, and (4) that facilitates easy data analysis. Furthermore, in… more
Abstract:Measuring economic progress in conflict and post-conflict regions is notoriously difficult. Yet, these measurements are critical for Stability, Security, Transition and Reconstruction (SSTR), which in turn is crucial for counter-insurgency. A myriad of problems plague the measurement of economic… more
Abstract:Our goal is to design and build a lightweight, wide area passive standoff imaging detection system capable of rapidly detecting liquids on surfaces for the purpose of contamination avoidance and reconnaissance. The envisioned technology extends the advantages of wide area passive infrared sensing… more
Abstract:Project goal is to develop and demonstrate a chemical/explosive sensor system to provide enhanced detection and classification in missions for which acoustic or optical imaging alone are not effective. The chemical sensor package developed and delivered during this SBIR effort will be lightweight,… more
Abstract:In coordination with the SPAWAR Systems Center, San Diego, Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc. proposes to develop an autonomous Array Burial Vehicle (ABV) to install U.S. surveillance arrays.

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.
