Abstract:In the tactical wireless ad hoc network, all networking nodes are vulnerable to various security attacks. Therefore, the centralized data storage is unable to protect the tactical data once the storage device is compromised by an adversary. Distributed data storage is the alternative that the data… more
Abstract:The modeling and simulation of human performance is often difficult because there is no uniform framework for expressing the content and structure of a human performance model and all but impossible to compare and contrast across different models despite the abundance of quantitative modeling tools.… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: In order to make flight combat training more efficient and effective, many strides have been made in the areas of role-based competency definition through the use of Mission-Essential Competencies (MECs), live-virtual-constructive (LVC) simulation for realistic practice and assessment in… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The high operations tempo, frequent deployments and other fact-of-life events limit the availability for team training. To mitigate this training availability problem, training simulations need to incorporate constructive entities as teammates in a way that enhances training for the human… more

Abstract:Lack of fresh water hinders economic development, devastates human health, leads to environmental degradation and foments political instability. We obtain our water from limited and unevenly distributed surface and underground fresh water sources. Over withdrawal from these quasi-renewable… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II Project of ?No Heat Spray Drying? fundamentally changes the process of spray drying liquids to powders by eliminating the use of heat. Typically, a liquid emulsion consists of a high value liquid ingredient that is emulsified with a carrier system… more
Abstract:The current installation rate of wind turbine generators is on track to meet DOE published goals of 20% wind source of electricity by 2030. As the most economical sites become populated, future installations will rely more heavily on low wind speed on-shore site locations and high wind speed… more
Abstract:The United States Department of Energy, along with researchers in industry, and academia has identified an urgent need for Bismuth Strontium Calcium Copper Oxide superconducting precursor powder. This material is a high-temperature superconductor that will be used in powerful magnets for… more
Abstract:Electric vehicles, including hybrids in the nearer term, are the principal transportation technology by which the United States can become independent of foreign oil, can become energy independent overall, and can effect control over greenhouse emissions. For this to become reality, electric vehicle… more
Abstract:This proposal is in response to rapid modeling need in our military force. We plan to develop and demonstrate a framework that will allow warfighters to rapidly acquire and edit geospecific terrain databases, including both building exterior and interiors. The output of our models will be in… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: In the future, numerous military database, documentation, and mission-critical information systems will be migrated to the clouds, due to cloud cost-efficiency and accessing flexibility. However, the cloud servers are generally untrusted either for data owners or users. In this proposal,… more
Abstract:Simply encrypted data storage is unable to prevent data loss or compromise if the storage device is damaged or compromised by an adversary. Distributed data storage is the alternative that divides the original data into fragments and secretly stored them on distributed devices with certain… more
Abstract:We investigate a problem of significant practical importance, namely, the recovery of the data matrix from a partial set of its entries that are collected in a noisy environment (i.e., a noisy partial matrix). Our proposed Near-Optimal Matrix Completion (NOMC) target to provide a leading approach… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: ADI and ASU propose to develop a novel methodology for blade peak stress prediction from limited strain gage/tip-timing measurements when multiple vibratory modes are present. The current protocol assumes that only one mode is present and only provides upper and lower bound estimates of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): According to the National Survey of Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) of 2008, 7.2 million Americans are in need of treatment for Substance-Related Disorders (SRDs), and a large proportion of those need treatment for opiate pain reliever, heroin, and alcohol addiction.… more
Abstract:TiER1 Performance Solutions proposes to develop CATS (Competency-based Adaptive Training System), a system to address common warfighter training needs in the Air and Space Operations Center. A major goal of this effort is to prepare warfighters for mission readiness by integrating a Learning… more
Abstract:This program will focus on developing and validating computational models for near-net shape processing of aluminum alloys. Computational models will be developed for deformation modeling and for texture generation. Characterization of two aluminum alloys including flow stress, forgeability, and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Deep wound infection following total joint arthroplasty is a devastating complication for physician and patient, a leading cause of morbidity, and a significant economic burden to the healthcare system. With an aging population and increased life expectancies,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Despite years of research, the cause of Alzheimer's disease remains essentially unknown. Topographic memory impairments are arguably the earliest cognitive deficits observed in Alzheimer's disease, and the brain areas involved in topographic memory are… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This FastTrack SBIR proposal aims to disseminate a Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) technology for stroke ambulation and neuromotor rehabilitation. The FastFES paradigm integrates two rehabilitation approaches,fast-paced treadmill walking and FES, in a… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Alcoholic Liver Disease (ALD) remains a leading cause of death from liver disease in the U.S., and there is still no FDA-approved therapy. Abnormal cytokine metabolism is a major feature of ALD. Elevated serum concentrations of tumor necrosis factor (TNF-) and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Periodontitis represents a polymicrobial disease, in which a complex microbial ecology that matures in biofilms in the subgingival sulcus triggers a chronic immune-inflammatory lesion that destroys soft and hard tissues of the periodontium. Despite the great… more
Abstract:Alcoholism is a complex condition in which there are many potential molecular and therapeutic targets for pharmacotherapy. This fast track SBIR contract aims to investigate compounds targeted on the glutamate/NMDA receptor (NMDAR) and the nicotinic receptor for acetylcholine (nicAChR). These… 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.
