Abstract:A miniature (5 pounds, 10 watts) LWIR multi-spectral/hyperspectral imaging system will be developed for applications in remote detection and identification of chemical and biological warfare agents, toxic industrial chemicals (TIC"s), homemade explosives (HME"s) and disturbed soil… more
Abstract:In today"s world, unmanned vehicles play ever-increasing roles in the military, firefighting, deep-sea and space exploration, and border defense. There is often a one-to-one ratio between operator and these unmanned vehicles; in some systems, an entire team of humans is required to operate a… more
Abstract:Unmanned systems are taking on an increasing role in the U.S. military. Monitoring unmanned vehicles, sensors, and events in dynamic environments is an intense and demanding task. Today"s unmanned systems provide limited support for detecting problems and anomalies, and deliver alerts that are… more
Abstract:Decision making is driven by context. Context can be hard to operationalize and harness to the design of decision support systems. Modern military task displays often omit important context which can lead to singificant errors. This problem is exemplified in undersea warfare and specifically contact… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR) Phase I project will research autonomous, dynamic power management to reduce power consumption in data center servers by up to 15-20%, strongly supporting the Environmental Protection Agency's push toward low-power data centers and rapid… more
Abstract:Paragon"s proposed PULSE technology builds upon existing vacuum insulated panel (VIP), vacuum dewar, phase change, and chemical heating and cooling technologies to provide a more robust transportation container with the potential for extended life and operability over existing systems. PULSE… more
Abstract:Paragon Space Development Corporation® (Paragon) and ENrG Incorporated (ENrG) are teaming to provide a highly efficient reactor for carbon monoxide/carbon dioxide (CO/CO2) conversion into methane (CH4). The system is a gravity-independent, compact, leak-tight, Solid Oxide Electrolyzer (SOE) system… more
Abstract:Paragon Space Development Corp (Paragon) and Thin Red Line Aerospace (TRLA) proposes to explore the utilization of inflatable structures by designing a habitation module as an integrated, all-fabric inflatable structural architecture, rather than modifying rigid space structural designs with an… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The development of exploitation algorithms for detecting and identifying activities from streams of ISR sensor data has outstripped the ability of existing evaluation tools and techniques. The work proposed here will result in two key products: (1) a sophisticated simulator capable of… more
Abstract:The Division of High Energy Physics of the US Department of Energy has expressed keen interest in technologies for neutrino factories and/or muon colliders as evidenced by its prior and recent call for proposals. The dipole magnets in the ring of a muon collider should generate the highest feasible… more
Abstract:The work proposed will develop and implement commercially viable gradient detection methods and
algorithms for localizing radiation sources using a single non‐directional detector. Exploitation of
gradients introduced by source‐to‐detector distance – through natural or deliberate motion –… more
Abstract:Diode-Pumped Alkali Laser Systems (DPALS) have great potential for missile defense and other applications. These systems require a uniform, steady, flowing mixture of helium and rubidium vapor at elevated pressure and temperature. Significant challenges exist because rubidium is a very reactive… more
Abstract:Next generation aircraft systems will include weapons, sensors and actuators requiring large amplitude pulse power capability which will exceed the continuous power delivery capacity of most aircraft. Compact, lightweight and efficient power conversion and thermal management systems are required to… more
Abstract:To accelerate advances in cognitive science, and to facilitate the invention of novel brain-centered technologies, tremendous benefit would be gained by expanding the accessibility of Electroencephalography (EEG) to non-traditional users. A key driver for expanding accessibility is lowering cost… more
Abstract:Despite over 100 years of research, decompression illness (DCI) remains the mission-limiting factor in the design and execution of combat dives. Divers may spend over an hour decompressing after spending as little as ten minutes at the target depth. While decompressing, the diver is limited in… more
Abstract:Chemical, biological, or toxin attacks in military and civilian settings are a serious and growing concern. Standard first aid for exposure to many chemical warfare agents and toxins includes the immediate administration of relevant antidotes using an autoinjector. When an attack occurs, prefilled… more
Abstract:Soldiers recovering from mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) or relearning how to walk on a prosthetic lower limb often struggle with their balance. Of patients recovering from acute blast-induced mTBI, almost all (90%) report unsteadiness. These balance deficits affect ability to return to duty… 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.
