Abstract:In the proposed project, we will formally verify the correctness of the interaction between a Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) and user processes under various operating scenarios, such as multitasking, interrupt handling, user and kernel mode switching. The formal verification will be done… more
Abstract:Radar signatures of small boats and ships are inherently complex due to their myriad topside features: railings, antennas, masts, ladders, armaments, pilot stations, outboard engines, storage bins, etc. In boats, the use of fiberglass and other radar-penetrable materials for hulls and decks further… more
Abstract:Modern military systems contain numerous avionics and electronic systems that must perform to very high standards in hostile environments in the presence of numerous potential sources of electromagnetic interference (EMI). On airborne platforms for example, there could be dozens of RF systems… more
Abstract:Modern marine radar systems can provide detection and tracking of various sizes of ships, and progress in signal processing has allowed for the detection of some smaller and faster targets, largely due to the wake generated by the boats. However, detection of small boats still remains a very… more
Abstract:Our team proposes to expand the capabilities of an existing software tool so that is capable of producing CAD models and associated configuration information for representative antenna designs given the type of information that can be found on a vendor's specification sheet. The user will… more
Abstract:Modeling and simulation tools fill a critical role in system integration by allowing engineers to predict potential EMI problems and explore solutions prior to fielding of the platform. While providing a powerful and necessary capability, the use of these simulation tools is often hindered by the… more
Abstract:Quick detection of Chemical/Biological (CB) agents in the field can provide critical reconnaissance and contamination avoidance. CB agents pose a serious threat to both civilian and military sectors, and present techniques rely on dangerous collection methods, active measurement through external… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: A major limitation to the wide deployment of high sensitivity infrared detector arrays in space environment is the cooling system. Major developments of active cooling capabilities in terms of performance, capacity, reliability and cost remains a primary need. Current conventional… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: We propose the development of broadband high operating temperature two-color focal plane arrays (FPAs) that will allow simultaneous detection of radiation in the visible and infrared bands from the same target points. The first band will cover the 400 nm to 4 micron wavelength range and… more
Abstract:Improvised explosive devices (IED) present extreme hazards for US armed service personnel; however, current standoff IED detection systems are far too expensive and bulky to be widely deployed in combat arenas. To protect our soldiers from this threat, EPIR Technologies Inc. proposes to develop a… more
Abstract:Proposed is a dual-mode sensor for use aboard unmanned aircraft for safe operation in the NAS that:1.Incorporates high resolution Millimeter Wave radar with high resolution Electro-Optical sensor.2.Achieves complete real time, full time spherical coverage around the UAS platform by employing two… 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.
