Abstract:The US Navy has successfully developed a man-portable, X-class Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV) for shallow water coastal and riverine operations. Although the prototype USV has proven its utility during initial test and evaluation, several key technological hurdles remain. Increasing the top speed and… more
Abstract:This proposal seeks to provide the capability for fully autonomous buoy operation for up to 72 hours. Because the VHF link bandwidth is fully saturated in normal operation, it is not possible to simply store the data and uplink it when the aircraft is present. A fully autonomous buoy must determine… more
Abstract:SC2RAM ( Simulated Cognitive Cyber Red-team Attacker Model) is a cyber red-team-in-a-box that enables proactive response to cyber-attacks by developing a deeper understanding of the cognitive behavior of the players in the cyber-ecology (attackers, users, and defenders), embedding this understanding… more
Abstract:SoarTech will research technologies, collectively called"Lucid,"to enable and manage supervisory control of multiple unmanned vehicles (UVs). Lucid will monitor the mission and behavior of a team of UVs and (1) detect and project important events, alerting users to them and (2) estimate… more
Abstract:Unmanned Autonomous Systems (UAS) are complex systems that exhibit a broad array of behaviors in a wide range of missions and environments. They can change their behaviors over time so the UAS rigorously tested at the range is not the same as the one operating in the field. Current testing methods… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: In the DoD vision for unmanned systems, there is the demand for a single operator to manage multiple ISR assets, including UAV platforms and their sensor systems. Some research has been conducted in supervisory control and delegation interfaces for unmanned systems, but these have focused… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Cyber warfare presents a persistent and evolving threat to military and civilian information systems. Would-be cyber attackers are constantly changing their attack vectors to take advantage of security lapses by human resources and the latest vulnerabilities in information technology. To… more
Abstract:As technology continues to drive changes in Naval operations, warfighters increasingly must exercise strategies in complex team-based environments. A key to successful completion of mission operations in teams is communication. In domains where performers have highly specialized skills, the curation… more
Abstract:The revolution in simulation technologies for training is enabling learners to practice and learn in realistic environments. Researchers are developing algorithms that can tailor learner practice to the estimated abilities and needs of individuals, offeri
Abstract:Understanding imagery from unmanned automated systems in a timely fashion requires support systems for end users that can filter and preprocess massive data via complex vision and understanding. A new computer system that mimics both the bottom-up biological and top-down cognitive processes of the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT In the previous Phase II program, TWI demonstrated that Large Standoff / Large Area Thermography (LASLAT) can successfully be applied to Nondestructive Inspection (NDI) of composite aircraft structures. The method employed was based on optical excitation using a novel projector and signal… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The ThermoReg thermal model was developed to solve for tissue temperatures resulting from radio frequency (RF) heating using a voxel-based, heterogeneous tissue description of the human body. Although ThermoReg has been parallelized to run on high-performance computer clusters, the… more
Abstract:ThermoAnalytics Inc. (TAI), in partnership with Skidmore, Owings, & amp; Merrill LLP (SOM), will develop an integrated workflow for constructing energy models of single buildings and aggregates of buildings based on minimal user input. The proposed workflow represents a new paradigm for… more
Abstract:The assessment of aircraft paint schemes requires predictions of the signature and detection of aircraft targets. When paints are semi-gloss or gloss, specular reflections of the sun can result in intense glints that make the aircraft susceptible to detection. Accurate modeling of glints requires… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The objective of this SBIR research effort is to investigate algorithms for mitigation of sensor saturation, including the effects of laser dazzlers, in mid-wave infrared (MWIR) cameras using advanced image-processing techniques. The optical irradiance present in dazzled imagery spans… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: We propose to fabricate a high performance signal and pump combiner for high-power fiber lasers and fiber amplifiers. We will use advanced glass micromachining processes that will alleviate the fabrication challenges associated with either tapered fused fiber couplers or side-pumped… more
Abstract:Virtual EM is proposing a solution for achieving electrically small high-efficiency VHF transmit antennas suitable for use on medium size Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). In the proposed approach, maximum use of the UAV"s airframe for the antenna improves radiation efficiency while dynamic… more
Abstract:Experienced shore-based technicians are not available to provide their expert technical assistance to a ship at sea, which is usually the most critical time when naval electronic systems issues occur. The current trend is that the experience, skill levels, and especially the numbers of on-site ship… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The High Velocity Maintenance (HVM) initiative strives to reduce aircraft downtime while maintaining the most capable air fleet that achieves Air Force mission requirements. Unscheduled maintenance, due to issues uncovered midway into the maintenance work, introduces the most delays that… more
Abstract:Carbon capture and storage is generally considered as a crucial component of any U.S. strategy for addressing the climate change problem. Carbon dioxide can be stored underground in geologic formations, or permanently bound into some abundant minerals via carbonation reactions. These options have… more
Abstract:Prestressing strands are the core constituents of prestressed concrete structures. Steel offers important advantages over the emerging classes of composite tendons in this application; susceptibility of prestressing steel to corrosion, however, is a concern. The market appeal of existing… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Wide field of view (WFOV) video capability on unmanned aerial systems (UAS) has outpaced data transmission capability.

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.
