Abstract:ABSTRACT: Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) have shown promise enhancing a number of military missions; however, most successful autonomous systems have been employed in highly structured environments. To enable operations in militarily relevant, unstructured environments at an operational tempo, a… more
Abstract:ASR proposes to develop an HPM source for deployment into the MLRS M26 (or smaller) payload bay. Multiple, parallel FEGs will charge a single quarter wave oscillator to 100kV or more, and each FEG will be fired in order to accomplish the desired pulse repetition rates (PRR) in excess of 100 Hz. … more

Abstract:ABSTRACT: Assured Information Security, Inc. (AIS) proposes Endpoint-Operated Link-assured Security (EOLuS), an effort to develop a product with the capability for realizing continuous end-to-end trust (EtET) in a dynamic network a network in which every client would verify and monitor the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The ability to access high-quality training anywhere and anytime continues to grow in importance due to the complex nature of operational team environments. Training simulations that use virtual agents that respond and behave like live teammates enhance training and help achieve… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: A chip carrier for high power density electronics made from low CTE materials and embedded with an oscillating heat pipe will be applied to a real world satellite electronics device to transform high heat flux (e.g. 100-300W/cm2) at the device package to a lower heat flux at the heat sink… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: To maintain superiority in the cyber domain, the Air Force is preparing the next generation of cyber warriors. Running trainees through realistic exercises on cyber ranges is a highly effective method for preparing warfighters for cyber operations. However, training platforms and cyber… more
Abstract:JTRS tactical networks that employ mobile ad hoc networking (MANET) protocols, while providing new network centric capabilities for the warfighter, also present challenges for real-time cyber defense and cyber situational awareness. The JPEO JTRS therefore identified the need to protect tactical… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Air Force seeks to improve the accuracy of orbit specification and of 72-h orbit predictions beyond present capabilities. Thermospheric neutral density and satellite ballistic coefficient strongly impact satellite drag estimation, which is a leading source of error in orbit… 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.
