Abstract:In the post 9/11 security environment, rapid cargo inspection has become a high priority. Cargo scanning using either radiographic imaging or active interrogation for Special Nuclear Material (SNM) requires high energy and high intensity x-rays. High intensity x-ray sources are especially important… more

Abstract:Three different modalities of radiation sterilization currently exist: gamma-ray sterilization, electron beam sterilization, and x-ray sterilization. One of the most common ways to sterilize goods is with gamma producing radioactive sources, most commonly Co-60 and Cs-137. Long-term… more
Abstract:The main focus of photonuclear physics has always been investigation of the internal spatial and spin structure of the nuclei and nucleons. While high energy photons (over 100 MeV) are used most often to probe the nuclear structure and look deep into the nucleus, intermediate energy (1-40 MeV)… more
Abstract:Electromagnetic and particle-beam modeling is an important part of the design and manufacturing of accelerator components, such as electron beam sources and RF accelerating cavities. The premier electromagnetic and particle modeling tools today allow users to exploit parallel computing… more
Abstract:In the proposed collider eRHIC, hadrons from one of the RHIC storage rings will interact with electrons accelerated in a six-pass energy recovery linac (ERL). The maximum energy of protons will be 250 GeV and the maximum energy of electrons will be 30 GeV. The machine will heavily rely on SRF… more
Abstract:This project is to establish the capability and sustainability of the US-based rail manufacturers by applying innovative sensing and process control for a high-efficiency practice in producing 100m high-speed rails. Technology advantage is key to overcoming detrimental factors, such as higher labor… more
Abstract:In this Phase II SBIR project we propose to build and test a prototype non-contact time-domain terahertz non-destructive evaluation scanning system to acquire sub-surface images beneath hull coatings. The system will enable the rapid detection of hull defects such as corrosion and gouges hidden… more
Abstract:Directionally solidified (DS) superalloy blades provided the basis for substantial gains in turbine engine performance in recent decades. Now, single crystal (SX) nickel-base alloy blades can be grown directionally with interior passages for cooling air, enabling more advances in engine performance… more
Abstract:Control of both manned and unmanned (i.e. autonomous or teleoperated) military vehicles is difficult for many reasons. As a result, vehicle accidents (most notably rollover) are one of the leading causes of casualty in Army operations (in manned vehicles) and disabling (in UGVs). Therefore, there… more
Abstract:the goal of driver's education is to provide students with the skills necessary to safely and effectively operate a motor vehicle. While effective training has been implemented since the 1930s, research suggest opportunities to enhance driver hazard anticipation and avoidance, which could in turn… more
Abstract:Autonomous or teleoperated navigation of unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) is difficult even in benign environments due to challenges associated with perception, decision making, and human-machine interaction, among others. In environments with rough, sloped, slippery, and/or deformable terrain, the… more
Abstract:The U.S. Navy is interested in improving the capability and reliability of towed arrays by embedding low power telemetry electronics into the same package as the hydrophone/sensors. The telemetry electronics will be located inside a pressure housing that will contribute to increased reliability.… more
Abstract:Energy is the backbone of modern warfighters in today"s environment. Solders currently carry as much as 15-20 pounds of batteries. Effective management of these batteries and an efficient means of charging these batteries is extremely important. Currently Lithium-Ion batteries such as the… more
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
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.
