Abstract:MOBILE ROBOT SYSTEM NAVIGATION IS A DIFFICULT PROBLEM UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. OUTSIDE NAVIGATION USING COMPUTER VISION-BASED METHODS REQUIRES RECOGNITION OF VARIABLE TERRAIN FEATURES OR THE USE OF A RADIO LOCATION SYSTEM SUCH AS A GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM. INDOOR NAVIGATION IS TYPICALLY… more
Abstract:Due to the increasing use of technology to plan and implement modern day combat, it is imperative that troop and vehicles deployment and position be known as precisely as possible. Furthermore, the unit commander must be able to quickly plan, transmit, and display friendly and adversarial troop and… more
Abstract:THIS RESEARCH PROJECT IS DIRECTED AT DEVELOPING AN OPERATOR PERCEPTION MODEL BASED ON INSIGHT FROM EMPIRICAL PERCEPTION DATA COMBINED WITH KNOWLEDGE OF HOW THE HUMAN VISION SYSTEM PROCESSES INFORMATION. AS A FIRST STEP IN THIS DIRECTION, WE ARE PROSPOSING TO COLLECT PERCEPTUAL DATA AND USE THIS DATA… more
Abstract:RESEARCHERS ARE PRODUCING A HAND-HELD CHEMICAL CALCULATOR SHOWN TO BE AN EFFECTIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING TOOL THAT ASSISTS STUDENTS IN SOLVING (AND UNDERSTANDING) CHEMISTRY CALCULATION PROBLEMS. THE RESEARCH PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO ANSWER SOME OF THE ARGUMENTS THAT HAVE BEEN PUT FORWARD AGAINST THE… more
Abstract:COALITION TECHNOLOGIES, LTD., (CTL) RESEARCH HAD IMPROVED A SIMPLE GAS PHASE TREATMENT (SULFONATION) OF WASTE RUBBER AND PLASTICS. RESULTS FROM LABORATORY SCALE EXPERIMENTS DONE AT MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY HAVE SHOWN THAT CONCRETE MADE FROM SULFONATED RUBBER AND PLASTIC PROVIDED BY CTL HAS IMPROVED… more
Abstract:The objective is to develop a practical method for measurement of cochlear morphometric and physiological responses from fluorescent microscope images of cochlear tissue. Fluorescent molecular probes are chosen for the particular purpose of the experiments, i. e., marking the location and… more
Abstract:THE U.S. NAVY AND MARINE CORPS HAS IDENTIFIED THE NEED FOR A FAST FIEL6L-PORTABLE SPECTRORADIOMETER. THIS CAPABILITY WILL ALLOW MARINE CORPS AND NAVY PERSONNEL TO DETECT TARGETS IN A CLUTTERED BACKGROUND.THE TARGETS CAN RANGE FROM MINES TO TANKS AND ROCKET LAUNCHERS. THE BACKGROUNDS CAN RANGE FROM… more
Abstract:The proposed effort analyzes five spectral imaging radiometer concepts with the goal of developing an infrared spectral imaging radiometer (IRSIR) for use in high performance aircraft. The desired performance characteristics for this IRSIR are: high optical throughput, a small physical package, and… more
Abstract:Spinal cord injury is one of the most serious injuries the nervous system can sustain. Injuries involving the cervical region of the spinal cord result in quadriplegia, in which movement of the upper extremities is compromised, lower extremity movement is essentially impossible, and bowel, bladder,… more
Abstract:COMPUTING SYSTEMS THAT USE COMPLEX GRAPHIC AND IMAGE-BASED INFORMATION REQUIRE THE STORAGE AND RETRIEVAL OF VERY LARGE DATA FILES. OPTICAL DISK SYSTEMS OFFER THE LARGEST STORAGE CAPACITY OF ANY RANDOM ACCESS STORAGE SYSTEM. A MAJOR COST ITEM IN THESE DRIVES IS THE HIGH POWR LASER DIODE REQUIRED.… more
Abstract:We will develop a new technology to address the need for a routine clinical method to preserve tissue for cytochemical assay. The new technology addresses the fact that frozen specimens are preferred for bioactivity, but available methods give inaccurate data. The method LYOPHILM combines… more
Abstract:THIS PROPOSAL IS CONCERNED WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN INFRARED/MILLIMETER WAVE DETECTOR USING THE BULK, NON-LINEAR CURRENT-VOLTAGE CHARACTERISTICS OF HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILMS. SUCH DEVICES, WHICH ARE INFLUENCED BY INTERGRAIN WEAK LINKS, CAN CONVERT (RECTIFY), AND THEREFORE DETECT,… more
Abstract:Time-delays and limited sensory feedback of remote telerobotic systems tend to disorient teleoperators and dramatically decrease the operators\' performance. To eliminate these effects, Innovation Associates will design a Virtual Environment for Undersea Telepresence (VEUTel) system. The VEUTel… more
Abstract:To provide the Air Force with the capability of measuring optical wave-front properties around aerodynamic structures in wind tunnels, Innovation Associates proposes to develop a High-Speed, Aero-Optical Wave-frong Characterization System (AWCS) which is capable of recording 64,000 or higher… more
Abstract:TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES FOR CONTENT-BASED ORGANIZATION AND RETRIEVAL OF ELECTRONIC IMAGES FROM LARGE DATABASES WILL PROVIDE A GREATLY NEEDED RELIEF FROM THE EVER GROWING AMOUNT OF VISUAL INFORMATION GATHERED BY INDUSTRIES AND INDIVIDUALS ALIKE. CURRENT APPLICATIONS OF IMAGE INFORMATION SYSTEMS DO NOT… more
Abstract:A NOVEL DESIGN AND INITIAL PROTOTYPE OF A BLOOD PUMP USED FOR EXTRACORPOREAL CIRCULATION IS PRESENTED. DUE TO THE UNIQUE DESIGN, THE PUMP HAS IMPORTANT DESIRABLE PROPERTIES NOT FOUND IN CURRENT DRIVERS, THE STANDARD ROLLER AND THE CENTRIFUGAL PUMPS. THESE PROPERTIES INCLUDE INHERENT PRESSURE… 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.
