Abstract:During a mission naval UAS collect large volumes of data but only sub-sections of this data contain information relevant to the mission. In order to find the important information analysts must sift through ALL of the data. FIXATE is a biomimmetic object classification system to automatically… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Spectral Sciences Inc. (SSI) proposes to address the need for improved battlespace intelligence by developing the Battlespace Large Area Spectral-imaging Transient-event (BLAST) sensor, optimized for space-based target detection. BLAST is a highly efficient, fast framing, Hyperspectral… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Underground facilities can be used by rogue governments to conceal command-and-control and to manufacture weapons of mass destruction, and are an increasingly important operational challenge to U.S. military forces. Our objective is to determine improved methods of detection essential to… more
Abstract:Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) sensors have the unique ability to identify objects based on the spectral signatures of their surface materials. With these signatures, movements of designated targets could be detected using images collected hours to days apart. Many targets of interest, such as… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: After being cast, a solid rocket motor (SRM) may potentially be stored for tens of years before it is fired. During this time, both strategic and tactical motors are subjected to constant changes in humidity and temperature that can lead to premature aging of the propellant, liner and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: We propose the development of a high-speed, passive, in-situ, hyperspectral sensor system and its integration into engine-scale augmentor test program at AEDC. In this effort, custom probe optics will be integrated into an existing mechanical engine probe to provide multiple views of the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Battlespace awareness through on-orbit remote detection and classification of energetic events and objects such as missile launches, bomb blasts, artillery fire and aircraft could provide intelligence on adversaries in near real-time to military commanders. Currently deployed space-based… more
Abstract:Infrared (IR) target scenes can suffer distortion from atmospheric species present along the atmospheric paths through which the signals are propagated, causing errors in derived target characteristics (e.g., position, velocity, angle). The main contributor to these errors is refraction of the… more
Abstract:Laser beams present potentially serious hazards to the human eye. Retinal damage can occur for laser eye exposure to milliwatts power levels. The
purpose of this proposed program is to develop a portable system for detecting and measuring radiant exposure resulting from laser beams, and to
Abstract:Achieving the NAVY goal to dramatically increase the current state-of-the-art strategic solid rocket motor and gas generator components is critically dependent on the development of high performance materials systems. In order to meet these goals, non-eroding throat materials design solutions and… more
Abstract:"Current glass-based transparent armor has two major deficiencies: 1) It is very heavy, and therefore can compromise performance and helicopter transportability of vehicles; and 2) It is very thick, and therefore can compromise visual signature of vehicles. Advanced technology ceramic… more
Abstract:Surmet is developing processes to evaluate the environmental damage to Ge IRST domes, and then refurbish those that can be fixed, at a fraction of the purchase price. These processes are predicated on Surmet"s ability to strip the DLC from current domes, and subsequently deposit thick durable… more
Abstract:The proposal addresses a demand in High-Energy Physics for radiation-insensitive high-thermal-conductivity adhesives. Adhesives play an active role in keeping electronic devices cool by conducting heat away, thus increasing reliability. A radiation-tolerant adhesive exhibiting high thermal… 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.
