Abstract:An architecture for linking geographically disparate N-DOF test beds to facilitate real-time distributed operations is proposed. An industry supported middleware solution, OpenDDS, is proposed as a basis for the required simulation software. A survey of existing laboratory conditions is performed.… more
Abstract:An integrated data registration solution using neural networks is proposed. Previous data registration solutions typically involve a fixed model of biases and noise. The biases are then estimated and the estimates used to offset future sensor measurements. These models are unable to solve more… more
Abstract:Purpose: American Sign Language (ASL) is a visual and gestural language that is distinct from English, has its own grammar, syntax, vocabulary, and no text representation. Despite the differences between the languages, students who use ASL are typically assessed with protocols for English-speaking… more
Abstract:A fundamental shift in weather forecasting"from a deterministic approach to one that embraces communication of forecast uncertainty"is crucial to advancing the science of weather prediction. The most promising technique today for generating probabilistic forecasts is the combination of… more
Abstract:Imperium in collaboration with its partner Bluefin Robotics is pleased to present this proposal for an underwater imaging device to inspect the internal components of underwater mines. The device is based on Imperium"s proven ultrasound technology and Bluefin"s Hovering Autonomous… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A new generation of dexterous prosthetic hands is becoming available, which are capable of a greater number of functions than conventional prostheses. To enable this increased functionality, we have pioneered a novel control platform which includes a surface… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Diseases associated with the Poxviridae (smallpox, vaccinia and cowpox viruses), and Herpesviridae (HSV-1, HSV-2, HSV-8, VZV, EBV) dsDNA viruses represent major worldwide public health problems. NandN Scientific, Inc. (NandN) is developing a first of its class… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Filoviruses, Ebola (EBOV) and Marburg (MARV), are causative agents of sever hemorrhagic fever in humans with case-fatality rates exceeding 88%. Filoviruses, designated as category A select agents by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are considered… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Staphylococcus aureus is a gram positive human pathogen that causes a wide range of infections ranging from skin and soft tissue infections to life threatening diseases like sepsis and pneumonia. S. aureus is well knownfor its ability to acquire and evolve… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Staphylococcus aureus is a human pathogen that causes a wide range of diseases from skin and soft tissue infections (SSTI) to life threatening sepsis and pneumonia. Infections with S. aureus in the hospitals and community have been on the rise over the past two… more
Abstract:The success of U.S. Army"s military and SSTR missions often hinges on the ability to understand HSCB dynamics of the theater of operations. More broadly, understanding of different socio-cultural terrains is the key to US national security. The costs of cultural ignorance or… more
Abstract:Human Social and Cultural and Behavior (HSCB) models are increasingly used to provide critical support to US military decision making. HSCB models are highly reliant on data; they need data from many sources, types, and areas of human behavior. The concomitant data streams have variable data quality… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Discourse plays a variety of functions in the lifecycle of human organizations, as it helps define collective identities, motivate and justify causes, outline roles, articulate ideologies, and supply language-based scripts that can be enacted. Discourse plays a significant role in… more
Abstract:The development of Plug-and-play Compatibility for CubeSat Attitude Determination and Control Systems (ADACS) is proposed. Existing Maryland Aerospace (MAI) ADACS technologies are well-capable of autonomously providing complete attitude determination and control to satellites weighing up to 20kg. It… more
Abstract:A high performance ADACS (Attitude Determination and Control System) for CubeSats incorporating Miniature Star Trackers is proposed. The proposed program will focus on development and integration of 2 Star cameras into the MAI-400 which is the current state of the art nanosat ADACS and is marketed… more
Abstract:Salmonellae continue to be one of the leading worldwide causes of foodborne bacterial diseases. They cause 1.2-1.4 million annual cases of salmonellosis in the USA, with associated costs estimated to be as high as $12.8 billion/year (in 1998 dollars). Despite continued and escalating efforts to curb… 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.
