Abstract:The need for clean, reliable electrical power is increasing in both the military and commercial sectors, which places high priority on technologies that provide flexibility and increased energy independence. The potential for reduced maintenance, high reliability, and increased durability is… more
Abstract:It is quite common for a group of GPS users to operate in close proximity and in a denied or degraded GPS environment as typical in urban canyon and heavily forested environments. Using the traditional GPS receiver approach, individual or all users may be denied the ability to navigate in such an… more
Abstract:OBJECTIVE: To provide new and innovative conventional weapon concepts that can neutralize (e.g., kill or decompose) large quantities of containerized chemical and biological warfare agents in a non-permissive environment with no intentional agent release, minimizing collateral effects. … more
Abstract:Nano-energetics/hybrid energetic systems have been under development for decades with only one weapon system explicitley incorporating these materials, the Thermobaric Hellfire warhead, with a solid FAE surround. There have been other implementations but these are primarily in the areas of warhead… more
Abstract:The three basic requirements for an effective RNA interference-based therapy are 1) identification of key genetic defect[s] that provide pivotal survival advantage(s) to the overall cancer cell population; 2) construction of a potent and durable target-specific therapeutic agent; and 3)… more
Abstract:KBN Optics will investigate the nonlinear and chromatic properties of adaptive polymer lens materials. These studies will be directed toward identifying materials that can be incorporated in the next generation riflescope design, which can provide automated focusing and optical limiting capability… more
Abstract:Wounded soldiers experience a variety of musculoskeletal defects resulting from ballistic and blast trauma. Improved body armor technology and advanced medical care has decreased mortality due to blasts. However, optimal therapies have not been developed to treat the polytissue trauma that remains.… more
Abstract:Weather accounts for 70% of the annual cost of air traffic delays and cancellations, of which about 60% are estimated to be avoidable. Traffic Management Initiatives (TMIs), including reroutes and ground delays, are used by Air Traffic Management (ATM) operators to mitigate impact of en-route… more
Abstract:Brain Computer Interface, LLC (BCI) proposes to investigate the feasibility of developing a non-invasive system (MindScope) to remotely monitor and diagnose warfighters at risk for PTSD. BCI will utilize wireless dry electrode electroencephalography (EEG) headsets communicating with laptop PC's… more
Abstract:Malicious alterations of COTS circuits poses major concern in terms of their reliable and trusted field operation. It is extremely difficult to discover such alterations, also referred to as "hardware Trojans" using conventional structural or functional testing strategies. In this proposal, we… more
Abstract:Existing security technologies such as firewalls, anti-virus, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and botnet detection systems fail or have a significant capability gap in detecting and stopping malicious traffic, particularly where it is disguise

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.
