This tool will assess potential console designs in terms of several key factors: their adherence to human factors design… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This proposal addresses an important need of DoD and MILSATCOM for satellite based receivers operating at Ka-Band having multiple beams (as many as 30) capability. Many of these beams need to be independently steered. This has traditionally been a major challenge because, as will be… more
Abstract:Pure oxygen helps produce energy from coal with fewer greenhouse gases. Current oxygen production systems are expensive. ITN proposes an oxygen separation system using pulsed magnetic fields and polymer magnetic beads to separate oxygen from air for coal gasification plants/syngas production, as a… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Microscopy is a critical enabling technology for advancing our understanding of nature. Imaging nano-scale objects with light in the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) and soft x-ray regions of the spectrum has advantages over visible light for several reasons including: resolution, elemental… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Lexycom is proposing to design a miniature software-defined radio (SDR) transceiver for Remotely Piloted Vehicle (RPV) installations to support over-the-horizon TSPI/video relaying capability. Depending on the data traffic requirements, the proposed SDR can be equipped with several RF… more
Abstract:The E-Band frequency bands from 71 to 76 GHz and 81 to 86 GHz have been designated for satellite down- and uplinks, and have gained an increased interest. The wide bandwidth in excess of 1GHz allows the use of low order modulation schemes and simple receiver implementation. In other words, coarser… more
Abstract:Under the Phase I SBIR effort, we designed a Submersible GPS Enhancement and Playback System (SGEPS) to allow processing of the GPS signals after a submarine has submerged to reduce the time spent on surface for covert operations. This uses a Digital Storage Receiver (DSR) for capturing the GPS RF… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The objective of this effort is to investigate designs and possible options for a PNT Flexible satellite for GPS to enhance position, navigation, and timing (PNT) capabilities at a low cost using small augmentation satellites with limited payload. A desired feature to help overcome GPS… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: In the event that the GPS constellation was unavailable, none of the current back-up navigation and timing solutions in place today such as inertial navigation, geostationary augmentation systems or cellular positioning solutions would function, resulting in catastrophic effect on… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: A robust back-up navigation alternative is needed to continue to provide accurate PVT data when GPS is denied. Navigation solutions can be enhanced by utilizing existing networked communications for dismounted forces operating in small platoons. When some of the forces lose their GPS… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Data compression schemes generally fall into two main categories: lossless and lossy. Lossless schemes promise to provide an uncompressed file which is identical before and after compression. As lossless schemes must be able to reconstruct every feature of the original file they often… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Numerica is proposing to extend its mature multiple hypothesis tracking (MHT) technology by providing additional estimation and data fusion algorithms to support improved space object detection, tracking, identification, and characterization. An extended program would aim to develop a… more
Abstract:Numerica is proposing a data-driven approach using modern state-of-the-art machine learning methods on sparse feature representations of non-resolved photometric data, for space object characterization, classification, and anomaly/change detection in support of threat identification and notification… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Detection of dim phenomena in images generated by short-wave infrared (SWIR) systems is complicated by the fact that objects of interest generate very faint trails on the raw imagery due to image artifacts; e.g., background clutter, sensor noise, internal reflections, atmospheric effects,… more
Abstract:Surface target tracking in the littoral environment is challenging because of a combination of issues including the presence of highly maneuverable small water-craft, occlusions due to waves or larger vessels, and the inability of any single shipboard sensor to maintain coverage on all objects at… more
Abstract:U.S. intelligence, reconnaissance, and surveillance (ISR) platforms employ SIGINT sensors for target platform detection, identification and location. Many receivers are narrowband and are scanned over the RF spectrum (e.g., 2-18 GHz) in search of RF emitters of interest. With the rapid proliferation… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Over the past decades, the capabilities of sensors to gather data has greatly outstripped the abilities of communication links to transmit that data. Accordingly, leveraging advanced sensors requires effective techniques for data compression. In particular, modern satellites provide a… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Conformal phased array laser weapon system technology is incrementally moving toward technical feasibility. Our Phase 1 Generalized Phased Array Weapon System Beam Director Development (GPAWS-BDD) program completed a detailed optical and mechanical design for a conformal phased array… more
Abstract:In this project a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) temperature tag and reader system will be developed. The tag will be easily applied to large caliber ammunition such as artillery propellant. Readers will be attached to guns or be located in handling areas. When the propellant is passed near… more
Abstract:The personal protective equipment (PPE) worn by firefighters protects them against burns and hazardous environments. This equipment works so well that they may not notice that their environment has become so hot that is no longer safe. Although current thermal sensor technologies (generally built… more
Abstract:Electric ships and other Naval applications employing batteries (and ultracapacitors) for energy storage need a universal battery management system (BMS) that can diagnose device degradation and ensure safe operation. The Navy currently faces a difficult situation; where each energy storage device… more
Abstract:Military personnel must be protected from diseases transmitted by ticks and fleas, including plague and Lyme disease. Effective surveillance of tick and flea vectors is vital to determine the population present, whether they are carrying disease, and whether control campaigns are working.… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The cleaning of aircraft maintenance facilities requires a detergent to remove soils including hydraulic fluids, fuels, oil and grease. The wastewater must be treated to remove toxic heavy metals (particularly chromium and cadmium) before it is discharged to a municipal wastewater… 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.
