Abstract:In recent years, many human-computer interaction and virtual environment systems have incorporated haptic devices. However, the range of environment properties and types of interactions enabled by existing haptic interfaces are very limited. Haptic feedback is typically restricted to that provided… more
Abstract:We propose to develop a systematic approach of synthetically generating diverse types of large-scale, dynamic and high fidelity social network data via measurement calibration. Social network research needs access to realistic social media datasets for testing social network theory and developing… more

Abstract:The future military network is envisioned to be a system of systems consisting of heterogeneous groups/domains operating at different networking paradigms using different waveforms/interfaces. Existing research has been focused mostly on the enabling technologies such as radios, media access,… more
Abstract:Today, various mobile robots have already demonstrated their effectiveness in Afghanistan and Iraq, especially in standoff EOD operations. However, the current limitations are that: 1) they are too expensive to be widely distributed across the theaters in order to protect small dismounted units, 2)… more
Abstract:Since each discrete event simulator (DES) is implemented differently, each DES defines a unique application programming interface (API) between its core and the radio models. These differences lead to a situation where radio models are heavily tied to a particular DES. Ideally, radio models should… 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
Abstract:ABSTRACT: JEM Engineering proposes to develop a Ku-band Tactical Common Data Link (TCDL) Antenna System for installation on a small Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) and providing near hemispheric coverage. JEM seeks to produce a high gain, low SWaP, low-profile, and low cost antenna concept. The… more
Abstract:A new type of conformal antenna is proposed which is based on the realization of a magnetic current filament (MCF) radiating structure which work cooperatively with an electric conductor surface. Thus, by using a circular loop MCF element placed flat against an electric conductor, we can realize an… more
Abstract:JEM Engineering proposes to research the feasibility of a combined Iridium/GPS anti-jam system within a 4"diameter aperture via a multi-element, multi-function antenna. We will develop a combined system architecture and a new algorithm for attaining anti-jam Iridium performance. We seek to… more
Abstract:A body-worn radio-frequency direction finding antenna array is proposed to cover the 50-500 MHz band with good gain and antenna patterns suitable for accurate direction finding. The array will be thin and lightweight, and will be integrated into a vest to be worn by a soldier. Feasibility will be… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project will introduce a completely new approach for inducing mild hypothermia and cerebral cooling. Therapeutic Hypothermia (TH) has previously been shown to improve patient survival and neurological outcomes, butit has only been adopted by a small fraction… more
Abstract:A big challenge in atomic layer deposition (ALD) of complex metal oxides is that the ALD temperature for one constituent oxide is often different from that of another. Researchers at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), have developed thermal and radical enhanced ALD processes to address… more
Abstract:Underwater sensors, unmanned underwater vehicles, and other autonomous systems can all benefit from the availability of energy in remote or deep locations. In a Phase I effort, Maritime Applied Physics Corporation (MAPC) designed a modular, solid-state thermoelectric generator (TEG), based on the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The development of a cure for osteoarthritis, the most common cause of pain and disability in the elderly, is difficult because of a lack of good diagnostics tests, in particular for early stages of the disease. Many candidate biomarkers are in various stages of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) affects an estimated one in three hundred young people in the U.S., with increasing annual incidence. It is primarily an autoimmune disease and is often associated with other serious autoimmune conditions such as Addison's, celiac, and… 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.
