Abstract:Pyrotechnic and pyrophoric IR decoy flares protect military aircraft from IR seeking surface-to-air missiles by closely mimicking the electromagnetic signature of the aircraft in order to divert the missile from its target. Pyrophoric based decoys have advantages over pyrotechnic technology in that… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Data storage onto Phase Change media with 22nm bit cells is proposed, providing 1Tb (threshold) and potentially 1TB (objective) data capacity in a one square inch memory chip. The chip will be designed for spaced based operation, radiation hardened, low power, and able to operate over the… more
Abstract:The goal of the proposed research is to develop self-healing embedded communication antennas to be used in transparent armori.e., ground vehicle windows. Embedded antennas are known to delaminate from their host structures after impact; this allows an empty space to form around the antenna and as a… more

Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Global Positioning System (GPS) is relied upon as a source of accurate Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) information by both civilians and the military. Ideally, GPS receivers receive navigation signals from the satellites, process the information, and provide correct PNT… more
Abstract:Numerous navigation bands are currently available in addition to L1 and L2. Receivers that receive and process multiple bands are the future standard for high precision navigation, jamming resistance and spoofing mitigation. To this end, Nu-Trek"s program will deliver a multi-band signal… more
Abstract:Within the radio spectrum between 80 MHz and 3 GHz there are many signals that can augment and substitute for GPS navigation. However, current military user equipment is incapable of receiving or processing these signals. This precludes the use of many signals that are already available, plus those… more
Abstract:Typical imager speeds (30 Hz to 60 Hz) are usually too slow to detect and track hostile fire. To achieve higher speeds, windowing and clustering are used. However, these methods reduce the field of view and the spatial resolution. Nu-Trek is proposing to develop a 2-speed SWIR imager, with optional… 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.
