Abstract:ABSTRACT: An opportunity exists to develop methodologies and tools to objectively assess the overall training effectiveness of a simulation and pinpoint specific system characteristics such as fidelity and training strategy support which contribute to the training effectiveness or lack thereof. To… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: A key problem in the rapid and lower cost development of spacecraft is that the various devices that comprise the spacecraft bus do not typically provide a single standard interface and/or communications protocols. This forces a design-to-order paradigm in which a spacecraft bus is… more
Abstract:Diamond Visionics proposes a solution to decouple rendering channels from simulators and displays by developing a novel architecture consisting of both hardware and software. Modern video processing and networking techniques will be utilized such that any display in the system can be connected to… more
Abstract:In Phase 2, Diffraction LTD, in collaboration with Optics 1, proposes to develop a variable magnification clip-on thermal imager (VM-COTI) that will be compatible with a variety of weapon and head mounted optical systems ranging from 1X night vision goggles (NVGs) to 5X ACOG scopes. The VM-COTI… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Environmental protection coatings are required to provide oxidation and hot corrosion protection to hot section turbine components. Unfortunately, the current generation of such coatings can degrade the fatigue resistance of the coated alloy. It is increasingly recognized that, due to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Thermal barrier coatings (TBC) are currently employed to protect gas turbine engine components. Thermally exposed TBC systems have been observed to be affected by moisture. This spallation mechanism, Moisture Induced Delayed Spallation (MIDS), occurs at room temperature while the coatings… more
Abstract:The U.S. Navy"s VLF/LF Submarine Broadcast remains vital to America"s strategic defense, providing reliable means to command submarines at depth, as well as other fleet assets, using high power radio stations all over the globe. The five major VLF stations with their enormous high-Q… more
Abstract:The goal is to develop external mechanical filters to eliminate signals above 2 kHz from accelerometers. Dominca"s patented layered-media approach will be used to develop filters for high-shock accelerometers used in explosive and impact events. Layered-media theory has been applied… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Conventional rigid-panel solar arrays are deployed with complex mechanisms or dynamically-tuned and damped hinges, with cables or external linkages for synchronization. Altering the number or size of panels incurs significant new engineering, tooling, manufacturing and integration. This… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The promise of lightweight, flexible and ubiquitous solar power depends greatly on the form factors available, their ruggedness and their cost. Nascent technologies based on organic active materials require substantial isolation from moisture vapor and oxygen to enable peak performance… more
Abstract:Inductive pickup loops are one of the primary magnetic diagnostics in modern fusion concepts. To convert the voltage measurement from the inductive pickup loop to a measurement of magnetic field, the loop voltage must be integrated. While simple in principle, in practice several factors make the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Echo Ridge proposes to prototype and evaluate GNSS processing algorithms designed to provide high accuracy and spoofing robustness (information assurance (IA)) by exploiting diversity in radio navigation signals (frequency, location, bandwidth, format) using new signal processing… more
Abstract:F/A-18 canopies and windshields are prone to accumulate high (>70 kV) levels of electrical charge on the outer surface during operation due to precipitation static charging that is carried and stored until discharged. Currently this charge is removed, after landing, by ground personnel, by wiping… more
Abstract:Metal-Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) epitaxial processes are used to deposit the GaN, InGaN, AlGaN and other wide band-gap semiconductor thin films making up the buffer, quantum well, and cap layers of the next generation high- brightness LEDs (HB-LEDs) for… more
Abstract:EngeniusMicro and the Georgia Institute of Technology propose a passive wireless sensor platform for the monitoring of corrosion on aircraft and for stored aircraft components. Multiple volumes, chambers, and compartments within aircraft are susceptible to corrosion damage because they are exposed… more
Abstract:This effort investigates two specific technologies to detect and monitor structural damage from high-energy impacts and blasts. The two technologies include directional transducers and structural retrofitting concepts. The directional transducers localize impacts, and enable subsequent in situ… more
Abstract:Coal-fired power plants are a very large, concentrated, and stationary source of carbon dioxide emissions, and represent the best target to address the problem of increasing CO2 emissions through use of carbon dioxide capture, utilization, and storage technologies. The overall… more

Soldiers are exposed to significant risk of injury and death from gun shots and blasts from improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Whereas heavy… more
Abstract:Tanks and enclosures were named the top corrosion expense on Navy vessels, accounting for $204 M in annual direct costs. To control these costs, there is a need for an automated monitoring system to assess coating damage and cathodic protection (CP) system performance. During the Phase II program,… 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.
