Abstract:U.S. Navy ASW aircraft deploy sonobuoys across a mission field. The aircraft must then stay on-station for the duration of the mission to monitor, command, and received data from the deployed sonobuoys. This requires a clear and uninterrupted channel of communications during all command downlink and… more
Abstract:An innovative, new adaptive signal processing solution is proposed for mitigation of the impact that wind turbine clutter has on airborne radar performance.

Abstract:Looking Glass is an immersive, story-driven game experience that enables computer science education for students K-12. It presents learning in a game-based series of challenging levels that permit a high degree of player choice in tailoring educational pr
Abstract:The frictional losses in a gear mesh can be reduced by including super-finishing in the final manufacturing process. Phase I simulation tests of a hypoid rear axle gear shows a reduction in traction coefficient of 50 percent from an"as ground"surface to a high quality super-finished… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Incomplete and inconsistent impregnation of fiber beds in composite material manufacture jeopardizes the performance of multiple aircraft platforms and substantially increases acquisition and sustainment costs for the Air Force. Current test methodologies are inadequate to address this… more
Abstract:Because Critical Program Information (CPI) is often embedded in Integrated Circuits (ICs), adversaries must now attack at the die level or through other intrusive means. As a result, Focused Ion Beams (FIBs) have become a preferred tool for reverse engineering. In Phase I, Nokomis demonstrated that… more
Abstract:The primary objective of this Phase II is to develop more complete part class coverage for the ADEC system. During Phase I, Nokomis demonstrated ADEC"s authentication capabilities.

Abstract:The design concepts being considered for Heatshield for Extreme Entry Environment Technology (HEEET) rely on the use of 3D woven carbon fiber preforms. Therefore, there is a need to be able to predict the properties and performance of a woven material. Validation of predictive modeling tools would… more
Abstract:As the power density of advanced engines increases, the need for new materials that are capable of higher operating temperatures, such as ceramic matrix composites (CMCs), is critical for turbine hot-section static and rotating components. Such advanced materials have demonstrated the promise to… more
Abstract:We propose a rapid mapping and 3-D visualization system especially suited for inside buildings, tunnels, urban"canyons", and other environments where GPS may be poor or not available. The system--which was fully demonstrated in our Phase I effort-- includes mobile Sensor Nodes that… more
Abstract:Although global pose is essential for success in certain vehicle missions and tasks, when GPS is denied there is no single technology (source) that can robustly estimate global pose without suffering from one or more failure modes. We propose to design an architecture that provides robustness by… 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.
