PRISM: Transforming the Science of Remote Sensing
Imagine the advances possible if we could see more of the invisible world. This quest for knowledge spurs MITRE's research in hyperspectral sensing—the science of capturing images beyond the visible spectrum.
The Power of a Tweet: Improving Emergency Response with Social Media
We know people use social media in crises. But can social media influence the decisions of emergency responders? A MITRE team conducted a simulation experiment, or SIMEX, to find out.
Gentlemen, Start Your Robots: Smartphones as Guidance Systems
When the government needed a faster and cheaper control system for military robots, MITRE researchers took out their smart phones—and turned them into the robotic brains.
Something to Rave About: MITRE's Open Source Collaboration
MITRE is engaged in a worldwide effort to refine the widely-used "social portal" Web platform known as Apache Rave. It's the first open source software development project aimed at meeting the demand for low-cost, customizable applications with social capabilities.
3-D Imaging: Seeing Deeper Farther and Quicker
Movies aren't all 3-D imagery is good for. As this article from MITRE's Envision shows, researchers are now exploring new optical techniques to allow for more mobile, high-precision 3-D measurement systems.
MITRE Helps the Government Address the Sizeable Challenges of Big Data Analytics
Government agencies face an ever-growing volume of data that needs to be stored, catalogued, and analyzed. MITRE is helping our sponsors manage this tsunami of information using with specialized tools and techniques.
MITRE Promotes Software Standards Development through Worldwide Partnerships
Software standards allow products created by different vendors to work together seamlessly. MITRE influences the development and adoption of standards through our partnership with the Object Management Group.
In Search of the Green Glow: Using Fluorescence to Detect Deadly Viruses
MITRE researchers are developing a new way of identifying deadly viruses. They add fluorescent tags and follow the green glow.
Handheld Sensor Could Put Biothreat Detection Capability in First Responders' Hands
MITRE's Bio-Nano Lab is collaborating with the Palo Alto Research Center to develop an easy-to-use device for identifying biothreats in the field.
Human Odor: Sniffing Out Identity and Deception
To help bolster security systems and procedures, MITRE researchers are building on studies that show an individualís odor may serve as both an identifier and an indicator of bad behavior.
Smart Thinking: Making Mobile Communications Work for the Warfighter
U.S. warfighters can increasingly rely on advanced mobile applications on their handhelds, thanks to a consortium of government agencies and commercial companies created by MITRE.
Glycoprotein Films: A Sweet Defense Against Infectious Disease
MITRE researchers are studying how to take advantage of an age-old strategy employed by nature—using sugar decoys to prevent pathogens from attaching to our cells and infecting us.
