A ruggedly-designed breakwater made from… more
Abstract:Modern warfare is becoming increasingly dependent on high technology and the means to power it. Lithium-ion batteries are a popular power choice due to high energy density and long charge hold. Unfortunately Lithium-ion batteries also have some distinct disadvantages including the possibility of… more
Abstract:The Oceanit-Ys/APL Foveal InfraRed Search and Track (FIRST) prototype is a dual channel cryogenic WFOV optical sensor system. FIRST provides multifaceted support for an airborne IR search and track and uses the unique Multi-target-tracking Optical Sensor-array Technology (MOST) sensor chip, which… more
Abstract:In the proposed effort, Oceanit will employ patented detection hardware and a novel approach to detect and deter avian populations from critical areas. Oceanit's solution will be autonomous, non-lethal, harmless to personnel, and unable to interfere with currently used sensor systems. Such a… more
Abstract:Prodrug-based drug delivery systems have the promise to augment the efficacy of compounds with limited bioavailability to solid tumors. We propose a unique approach for a targeted prodrug delivery system. The system has the potential to deliver other therapeutic agents as well. We propose to… more
Abstract:A low-cost, low-profile, phased-arrray SATCOM antenna with multi-beam and on-the-move capability is proposed for the Global Broadcast System (GBS) with operation in the Ka frequency band. Autonmous real-time beam steering will be achieved through a proprietary beam steering technique.
Abstract:Described herein is a proposal for the development of a novel countermeasure technique against the passive millimeter wave (MMW) sensor. The passive MMW sensor has become an essential device in modern warfare, enabling detection or imaging of a remotely located object or scenery without illuminating… more
Mobile information consumption is evolving alongside mobile computing technology. Mobile media monitoring however, and automated intelligent event alerting services have yet to be developed. We… more
Abstract:The TACOP Phase II effort will research, design, and prototype an instructor / operator-friendly solution for the LVC entity-management problem. The TACOP system will be composed of open source and government software that is compatible with Navy training architectures. The system will focus on… more
Abstract:As the Army transitions numerous capabilities into network-accessible services, available bandwidth is emerging as the most prominent bottleneck. There exists a need for a system to manage the various components and devices that make up the network to efficiently and effectively manage the network… more
Abstract:State-of-the-art software tools for the storage, exploration, search, and analysis of large volumes of time series data such as that collected from fleet-wide Aircraft Condition Monitoring Systems (ACMS) are limited. ACMS and maintenance data are not utilized to their full potential to provide for… more
Abstract:The Hyperspectral Visualization Environment (HVE) has been developed under SBIR funding for allowing the use of multi and hyperspectral data in the NAVAIR targeting process. These new data sources will allow the detection and targeting of hidden targets as well as better terrain classification. The… more
Abstract:Early childhood dental caries represents the most common, and possibly the most commonly overlooked, chronic childhood disease in the United States. National health leaders recognize that families with young children living in rural communities face significantly more barriers to sustaining positive… more
Abstract:Screening is a repetitive and often monotonous task, involving long periods of vigilance despite low occurrences of threat. Because of
the nature of this task and the high consequence if a threat is missed, a screener`s vigilance and avoidance of operation during fatigue are critical to their job… more
Abstract:The objective of the proposed work is to develop a hyperspectral sensor system in the 8 to 14 micron wavelength region (long wave infrared or LWIR) capable of detecting chemical agents of DoD and civil interest via spectral measurements at 4 wavenumber resolution. The technology is an evolution of… more
Abstract:The proposed project will focus on the development of an ultra-sensitive chemical trace detector for underwater unexploded ordnance (UUXO) detection. The envisioned technology is suitable for diver and/or unmanned underwater vehicle deployment.
Abstract:The objective of the proposed work is to develop a hyperspectral sensor system in the 7.5 to 12 micron wavelength region (long wave infrared, or LWIR) capable of detecting IEDs, EFPs, and landmines from a military vehicle at a rate of advance of 30 kph. The technology is an evolution of a LWIR… more
Abstract:This three-phase SBIR project will develop an actively managed circadian rhythm berth-light fixture that meets the stringent requirements of the Navy for shipboard replacement of conventional fluorescent fixtures. The fixture will combine high-efficiency solid-state lighting (SSL) and an intuitive… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project develops a diagnostic platform for herpes viruses by combining gold nanoparticle labels, high-speed fluid handling, and sandwich-based heterogeneous immunoassays with advances in surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS). Herpes has… more
Abstract:This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project addresses the need for a low cost technique to significantly minimize the time required to complete a diagnostic test while maintaining and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is a neurological disease caused by Flaviviruses of the tick-borne encephalitis group and causes death in up to 60% of the individuals developing clinical symptoms. Survivors often show se

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.
