Abstract:To maintain situational awareness, analysts must sift through and fuse information across multiple documents, data sources, and modalities (text, imagery, and biometrics). The emergence of Big Data has placed an enormous burden on the analyst as the volume of data to examine has increased… more
Abstract:Creating information products to answer"Tell Me About"questions requires the ability to identify key pieces of information relevant to a complex set of information requirements. Complicating matters, these key pieces of information exist in multiple modalities scattered across data stores,… more

Abstract:Echo Ridge and partner Rockwell Collins propose to mature, enhance and further demonstrate the out the window (OTW)-synchronized RF environment emulator technology prototyped and demonstrated in Phase I. The Phase II design and development activities will result in a deliverable prototype system… more
Abstract:Current commercial reactor fuel performance monitoring uses external power range monitors, and evaluates coolant water for contamination that would indicate failure of a fuel element. Estimates of the localized fission rates and temperature distributions within the reactor core are approximated… more
Abstract:Vacuum collection, holding and transfer (VCHT) systems are used on the newest Navy ships to reduce collected sewage volume to achieve desired holding capability when operating in littoral waters where discharge is restricted. Vacuum collection systems use sewage powered ejectors to discharge urinal… more
Abstract:Though vast improvements have been made in various protein expression platforms, limitations arise in the implementation of current purification methods. Traditional chromatographic methods are time intensive, carry heavy material costs, and are difficult to scale - reducing the benefits achieved in… more
Abstract:Neurotoxic organophosphorus (OP) agents (e.g. sarin, soman, VX and tabun) were developed initially as pesticides and adapted for chemical warfare. OP agents are fast acting and lethal at even very low doses. Countering the threat of intoxication by OP nerve agents is an important mission for… more
Abstract:One challenge encountered aboard marine vessels is the treatment, storage, and discharge of wastewater from marine sanitation devices (MSDs). Improperly treated waste water has a high potential for transmitting diseases and harming the ecosystem. The presence of Escherichia coli is routinely used as… more
Abstract:Military personnel and first responders must be prepared to operate under the threat of a wide range of CBRNE threats (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and high explosive) and rapidly counter WMD hazards. Daily-wear uniforms such as the army combat uniform (ACU) or the CWU-27/P flight… more
Abstract:Luna Innovations is developing stabilization technology for increased long-term storage of various biological moieties (e.g. enzymes, nucleic acids, and whole cells). This unique stabilization matrix allows for extended cell viability lifetime, minimizing cell maintenancerequirements while retaining… more
Abstract:Military training activities often result in environmental degradation due to creation of heavily disturbed soil areas including dirt road beds, vehicular training areas, tank trails, terrain subject to wildfires, artillery impact areas, helipads and dirt landing areas for aircraft. These areas are… more
Abstract:Luna Innovations Incorporated is proposing to design, build, and test a shape, length, and tension sensing tether for robotic exploration and sample-gathering missions on remote planets and moons. The proposed tether system is capable of determining the location and orientation of marsupial robots… more
Abstract:There is a need for a durable, non-toxic textile that is protective against vector-borne diseases, effective after repeating wear and laundering, and compatible with current / future military uniforms. The insect resistant textile is also expected to have no detrimental effect on the physical… more
Abstract:Transparent armor usually ranks among the heaviest of all materials on tactical vehicles per size and weighs significantly more than opaque armor at the same protection level. This is due to the large thicknesses required to provide the required ballistic protection. For this reason, transparent… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Luna Innovations Incorporated is proposing to develop an extreme environment stress and strain measurement system capable of operating at temperatures>900°C (1652°F) and streaming static and dynamic data at 5kHz. The system will consist of a multichannel readout system, extreme… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: There is a need to identify, qualify, and certify post-repair corrosion-inhibiting self-healing coatings in order to inhibit further corrosion on aluminum substrates. Many technologies have been developed in academia and industry to reliably identify visible and hidden corrosion on… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Aircraft oleo-pneumatic landing gear shock struts require a precise gas to fluid ratio. Measuring oil fluid level explicitly requires time consuming service and temporary aircraft inoperability. Current approaches to verify the operational readiness of landing gear shock struts forgo… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The annual cost of corrosion for Air Force aircraft and missiles is estimated to $5.4 billion with corrosion accounting for 32.2% of the maintenance budget. Military performance requirements for materials qualification often rely on pass/fail measurements of flat panels exposed in… more
Abstract:This Phase II program will build and deliver a tunable single-frequency laser operating in the 1.645 micron region on optimum CH4 absorption line features. Under this program an all-solid-state parametric-converted laser will be delivered to NASA LaRC which will be suitable for acquiring… 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.
