Abstract:Scene understanding is incredibly difficult, as it requires the recreation of a 3D environment from noisy 2D image data. Greedy approaches to estimating scene attributes are computationally expensive and are not sufficient for solving many real-world problems (e.g., detecting a suspect moving… more
Abstract:Availability of massive amounts of information afforded by net-centric operations poses a challenge for identifying information relevant for effective decision-making. Complex domains, such as Operational Assessment, require the ability to access and analyze relevant information to support mission… more
Abstract:As the Air Force organizational structure grows more distributed, geographically separated team members will need a collaborative working space where they can generate shared understanding and synchronize collective C2 and ISR activities. Currently, there is no way to collaboratively visualize… more
Abstract:In modern warfare, Soldiers frequently encounter situations that require sound ethical judgment. Concurrently, there has been an increase in situations where Soldiers have displayed unethical behavior in the face of trying circumstances. Given this, it is imperative that an ethical climate is… more
Abstract:Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) systems are becoming more and more complex, with ever increasing fidelity of data and ever increasing numbers of deployable sensors, such as those found on Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV"s). Furthermore, the current theater of war is becoming… 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:Decentralization and heterogeneity have dominated the development and deployment of space assets and accompanying command and control (C2) infrastructures. As a consequence, information requirements for robust Space Situational Awareness (SSA) are highly distributed. The mission threads common for… more
Abstract:Advanced Army C2 technologies are becoming ever more present in today's wars, enabling Commanders at all levels to have a greater understanding of the battlefield. However, current C2 technology does not actively measure, define, or represent the Commander's "contextual framework", which can lead to… more
Abstract:This SBIR topic presents two challenges. The first is to define techniques and technologies that advance the science of Accelerated Learning. The solution must be powerful and generalizable across ill-defined domains. The second challenge is to apply this solution to train managers to detect,… more
Abstract:Training professionals recognize the need for more efficient and effective training, and they view simulators as a means to supplement live training at decreased costs. Though skill transfer from simulators to live-fly is likely to be high, there are currently no standard tools available for… more
Abstract:While on deployment, many surgeons - including those who specialize in obstetric, vascular, cardiac, and orthopedic surgery - spend the bulk of their time performing trauma surgery. Such prolonged lapses in practice can result in the decay of specialized knowledge and skills. This becomes a major… more
Abstract:Current combat control systems require human manipulation that may unnecessarily draw the attention of the Commanding Officer (CO) and his team from more pressing matters such as damage control and re-engaging the enemy. There is no automatic method of selecting countermeasures and the CO must rely… more
Abstract:The search for entities of interest (either individuals or groups) in large behavioral datasets has emerged as a key need for irregular warfare, counter-insurgency, and counter-terrorism. This search requires measures of similarity between networks, and the combination of diverse multi-dimensional… more
Abstract:PEO IWS is currently developing the Undersea Warfare Decision Support System (USW-DSS). The USW-DSS will enhance the Combat Information Center (CIC) by providing a "Common Tactical Picture" to operators for shared situation awareness. To help define and improve the USW-DSS concept, solutions are… more
Abstract:Among the core missions of the US Army Corps of Engineers is the management and remediation of physical locations, including sites with complex environmental damage. Site managers must integrate heterogeneous technical information with stakeholder values and expert judgment. Current tools available… more
Abstract:Operations centers used for incident response, tactical military activities, and air traffic management can all be characterized as having multiple teams of individuals, each with defined responsibilities, interacting with people and systems within and outside of their organization to enable… more
Abstract:Aqwest proposes to investigate an innovative staged magnetocaloric refrigerator (SMCR) for thermal management of spacecraft payload electronics. SMCR offers a high-performance approach for thermal management of laser communication equipment and infrared (IR) sensors, while improving the overall… more
Abstract:Aqwest proposes to develop a novel edge-pumped composite disk laser amplifier for ultra-short pulse (USP) lasers offering operation at high-average power (HAP) at near-diffraction limited beam quality (BQ). The project will produce an amplifier for USP laser with the following major benefits to the… more
Abstract:Aqwest proposes to develop an advanced thermal management for cooling of electronic components using an active heat sink (AHS) offering unparalleled capabilities in high-heat flux handling and temperature control. The project will produce a cooling system with the following benefits to wide band gap… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase I project will investigate an active heat sink that is required for hybrid electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids that provide improved energy efficiency and reduced emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases. The project will validate the active heat sink concept for inverter… more
Abstract:XIMIR (Extreme-SWAP IMU for Missiles and Interceptors: Rad-hard), is a co-planar IMU development program that combines two navigation-grade inertial sensors being independently developed under separate funding with a novel packaging solution for shock, vibration and temperature immunity. Rad-hard… more
Abstract:R-LAM (Rad-hard Location and Attitude Module), promises a new generation of both integrated navigation modules and stand-alone navigation subsystems including nav-grade IMU's, atomic-precision clocks and GPS units compliant with the Space Plug and Play Architecture (SPA) initiative.
R-LAM leverages… more
Abstract:As autonomous systems are increasingly employed for combat support, many of the applicable missions require coordination of multiple unmanned systems. Robot-human teams present a number of communication, resource-allocation, task-coordination, and general-interaction challenges. Architecture… more
Abstract:Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) will build Synapse, a"plug and play"software product that will augment the Joint Mission Planning System (JMPS) to close a critical capability gap identified by the Navy, i.e., the lack of a real-time, bandwidth-optimized collaboration… 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.
