Unified Radio Architecture - A Cognitive Radio Platform Develop a "cognitive radio" software and hardware platform based on a novel radio-frequency IC chipset that allows interoperability across different wireless protocols, multiple frequencies, and airlinks, enabling communications between public safety personnel with different equipment.
Targeted Bacteriophage Therapeutics as Replacements for Conventional Antibiotics in Aquaculture Develop therapies using naturally occurring bacteriophages and phage-produced enzymes to treat and prevent major bacterial diseases that threaten commercial aquaculture.
Syntax- and Rule-Based Decoding for Statistical Machine Translation Systems Develop an integrated, statistical phrase-based and syntactic rule approach to machine translation to improve grammaticality and accuracy of translated materials, enabling broader use of machine-based translation by national security, government and business organizations.
Development and Demonstration of a Multiple, High-Current-Density Shaped E-Beam Column With Independent Vector Beam Placement Develop a new technology for a multiple-beam, linear-array electron-beam lithography system to enable cost-effective production of low-volume application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) through direct-write lithography.
The Seamless Detection and Treatment of Cancer With Near-Infrared Absorbing Nanoshells Develop an integrated approach to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer allowing more accurate detection and contemporaneous, minimal
