Abstract:The Persistent Anchorless Active Sonar Craft (PAASC) system is a unique approach to Naval ASW that achieves 90-day mission endurance carrying a state-of-the-art active sonar (DWADS) in a deep water operating area. The PAASC achieves this unparalleled endurance via an efficient balance between wave-… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Recent demand for broadband satellite communications (SATCOM) has risen sharply for both the defense and commercial sectors. Tactical SATCOM, such as WGS, AEHF, and GBS, require increasingly high capacity to support DoD's C4ISR requirements, while on the other hand, civilian… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Solar arrays play a key role in the operation of spacecrafts and unmanned aerial vehicles. Traditionally, inorganic semiconductor based solar arrays have been used for space applications because of their highest efficiencies. However, these solar arrays have several major limitations like… more
Abstract:Laser Plasma Accelerators (LPAs) could one day replace larger radio-frequency accelerators in
medicine and industry. This proposal aims to deliver a key component of such LPAs: a dual- nozzle, tailored gas jet. Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop a dual-nozzle gas jet… more
Abstract:Superconducting Radiofrequency Accelerators require a critical component that connects the
radiofrequency power supply that is warm, to the accelerator cavity that is very cold. Making this coupler insulating on the outside, so that it blocks heat from going into the cold region while making it… more
Abstract:Superconducting Radiofrequency Accelerators consume much less power than room temperature
accelerators, so can one day replace larger accelerators that are used in medicine and industry. Breakthroughs are needed: replacement of costly bulk niobium cavities by cheaper copper cavities that have a skin… more
Abstract:Superconducting radiofrequency accelerators require a critical component that connects the radiofrequency power supply (which is warm) to the accelerator cavity (which is very cold). This coupler component must be insulating on the outside to block heat from going into the cold region. It must also… more
Abstract:Often illegal border crossing along the southern border takes place in unimproved areas not constantly monitored by Border Patrol agents or deployed sensors. Agents must rely on sign-cutting to detect traffic and start their pursuit. These signs can be difficult or impossible to detect from a moving… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: We propose a concept for the detection of radiological sources at stand-off distances, using a two part system consisting of a detector tag and a radar system. A radiation-sensitive resonant circuit with nonlinear properties (the tag) is placed near a kn BENEFITS: Successful completion of… more
Abstract:Acellent Technologies is developing a system for the US Navy that incorporates innovative ways to detect and track corrosion, measure clamping force and bolt preload in bolted joints typical of aircraft structures. Many of the corrosion inspection methods currently employed in the field to inspect… more
Abstract:Current Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems can be used for composite damage monitoring. However, current systems lack the ability to accurately detect, locate and characterize damage for complex composite structures with local property variation. Acellent Technologies Inc. has therefore… more
Abstract:This purpose of this project is to develop an advanced Transparent Conductive Oxide (TCO) coating and protective hardcoating for use on the dome of passive infrared (IR) guided missiles.

Abstract:Neutron Scattering has been an extremely productive materials science probe for over 60 years. It is no exaggeration to say that any technology that uses plastics has benefitted from it in some way from Small Angle Neutron Scattering (SANS). Unfortunately, SANS is limited to studying molecular… more
Abstract:Landing gear systems are one of the more problematic subsystems on Naval aircraft. Landing gear failure can be caused by hard landings due to actual severe high sink rate with high enough GW to exceed the design strength, but are extremely rare.

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.
