Abstract:Environmental degradation of aerospace turbine components is a major concern for aircraft and power generation systems, and various surface treatments are utilized to extend the lifetimes of these critical components. This Phase II project is targeted toward extending the durability of thermal… more
Abstract:Applied Visions, Inc. (AVI) proposes to develop an Adaptive Visualization of Safe Optimized Routes (AVIsor) - a tool that will assist route planners in identifying and visualizing safe convoy paths in the dynamic urban battlespace. AVIsor will build upon our work on a similar SBIR project sponsored… more
Abstract:Applied Visions, Inc.(AVI) proposes to develop and build an interactive tracer for virtual objects (iTVO) - a tool that will provide analysts with a way to visually inspect and analyze the operation of software applications. iTVO is a software exploration environment that affords the user the… more
Abstract:The Secure Decisions division of Applied Visions, Inc. proposes to fill a technology gap by placing cyber attacks within their mission context, providing much-needed Situational Awareness (SA) about the people, assets, and branches of an organization that are affected. We will enhance Computer… more
Abstract:The goal of this effort is to develop a prototype training system that provides entry level Computer Network Defense (CND) analysts with the ability to learn fundamental concepts and practice their skills, within a compelling environment that offers network simulation and a gaming interface. The… more
Abstract:The Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project will demonstrate the commercial potential of laser vapor deposition (LVD), an innovative technology for depositing functional thin films of electronic polymers and nanomaterials. In the LVD process, resonant infrared laser… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Human apyrase represents a highly promising therapy for inhibition of cancer metastasis. The enzyme strongly inhibits platelet activation and aggregation without increasing bleeding risk. Using a protein informatics app
roach, we have successfully engineered an… more
Abstract:Decision support tools for target identification and alert generation depend upon the classification of static and moving objects. Existing methods for object classification rely primarily on static information available in single-frame images. The data from long-range video surveillance assets are… more
Abstract:The potentially catastrophic impact of enemy attacks on U.S. space assets, hence military missions, has led to recent efforts to improve Defensive Counter Space (DCS) workflow capabilities by increasing Space Situational Awareness (SSA). Critical for enhanced SSA, and therefore DCS workflow, is the… more
Abstract:Attacks against land-based convoys have become one of the defining characteristics of Operation Iraqi Freedom, with ambushes by snipers and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) accounting for an enormous proportion of U.S. casualties. The vulnerability of convoys has been exacerbated by several… more
Abstract:Operational terrorists organize their activities largely through small groups based on relationships among friends and family. Their operations and organizations must stay invisible to survive, while coordinating activities in real geophysical locations by actual actors using real resources. Finding… more
Abstract:Modern warfare is intensely information centric with vast amounts of information transmitted around the battlespace. Within this environment, it is critical to provide predictive and timely intelligence in planning and execution of operations. A tool is necessary to provide direction of ISR in the… more
Abstract:With the migration towards integrated LVC training there is an increasing need to understand human performance both within and across systems and environments. The problem with current data formats is that they are often incompatible, with no common specification across training environments and… more
Abstract:Some major military health problems are caused or exacerbated by environmental factors. Gulf War Syndrome, reactions to Agent Orange, and other such problems tend to have diverse symptoms and delayed (and variable) latencies to onset. A major reason they are so difficult to identify, diagnose, and… more
Abstract:In modern warfare, Soldiers frequently encounter situations that require sound ethical judgment. Recently there has been an increase in the situations where Soldiers have display unethical behavior in the face of trying circumstances. Given this, it is imperative that an ethical climate is… more
Abstract:As United States Air Force (USAF) missions become increasingly larger and more complex, the need for effective monitoring and assessment of operator state becomes ever more critical to mission success. Cognitive overload is, and will continue to be, a pervasive problem within a variety of… more
Abstract:The potential for biological catastrophes, whether acts of war or naturally occurring, requires military leaders to confront a variety of vexing scenarios. Commanders will be tasked with making difficult decisions that have critical implications for personnel, resources, and mission objectives. … more
Abstract:In less than a decade, UAVs have transitioned from a curiosity on the battlefield to a core capability for intelligence and attack. However, the intelligence that drives tactical decision making and flight control remains firmly lodged in the heads of expert operators. As more UAVs and other… 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.
