Abstract:Submarines have a need for situational awareness at all times. They are equipped with Fat Line acoustic arrays such as the T-16 and the TB-34 in order to provide this awareness. However, at low tow speeds the array droops from front to back and also loses straightness. This spatial distortion… more
Abstract:Current Air ASW sensor systems are complex in form and function with many operational settings as is the nature of the littoral and deep-water range- and time-dependent underwater acoustic environments in which the Navy applies them. Determining 3-dimensional sensor distributions and settings for… more

(AS & M) is proposing to develop and validate the procedures and modeling necessary to simulate, using computational fluid dynamics (CFD), an entire wind tunnel circuit. The application of CFD in wind tunnel circuit analysis is in its infancy and its… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Significant advances to subminiature three-velocity component laser-Doppler velocimetry (SM3LDV) technologies developed through the AEDC SBIR program will be implemented using technologies and resources from several groups. The transition activities address five needs. A new more compact… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) have shown promise enhancing a number of military missions; however, most successful autonomous systems have been employed in highly structured environments. To enable operations in militarily relevant, unstructured environments at an operational tempo, a… more
Abstract:This effort will develop innovative methods and an enhanced diagnostic tool to optimize maintenance for the Trident II (D5) Weapon System Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) by determining the most effective maintenance path considering history, likelihood of success for corrective actions, and time… more
Abstract:The execution of missions in the littoral environment significantly impacts the decision making process due to the closed-in environment which may limit maneuverability and the likelihood of multiple and diverse threats. These conditions drive the need to provide the LCS crews with critical… more
Abstract:This effort proposes to develop a toolset to evaluate the effectiveness of a safety-controller that monitors a learning-based autonomous control system. The traditional use of deterministic verification techniques for real-time monitoring is not feasible in the presence of uncertainty. This effort… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Aurora will demonstrate on our automated fiber placement (AFP) machine that we are able to lay up composite panels that contain sacrificial fibers that can be thermally decomposed to create a microvascular network of small cavities that allow the panel to act as a heat exchanger. The AFP… more
Abstract:During the Phase I program, Aurora conducted a comprehensive survey of potential platforms that included government owned and furnished UAVs and manned aircraft as well as Aurora’s Centaur Optionally Piloted Aircraft (OPA). The survey concluded, in part, that UAVs offer a significant improvement… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Aurora Flight Sciences, in collaboration with Worcester Polytechnic Institute, proposes the development of the Real-Time Safety-Assured Autonomous Aircraft (RTS3A) system. The system dynamically performs decision-making based on both sensed and predictive information to carry out adaptive… more
Abstract:Traditional hydraulic actuation and control surface layout both limit span wise control of lift distribution, and require large volume within wing cross-section, ultimately reducing efficiency. Mounting and support structures for traditional actuators, also necessitate drag-inducing protrusions in… more
Abstract:New measurement technologies are required to support science campaigns to better quantify rapid changes in the Earth atmosphere system. A key factor in this heightened focus on risk and uncertainty is the growing recognition that the climate is changing far more rapidly than was thought just five… more
Abstract:New measurement technologies are required to support science campaigns to better quantify rapid loss of permanent floating ice volume in the Arctic Ocean, accelerating loss of the Greenland glacial system, recurring drought conditions in the U. S. continental interior, and increasing frequency and… more
Abstract:Aurora Flight Sciences and partner, Draper Laboratory, propose to develop an on-orbit immuno-based label-free Suspension Cell Culture ANalysis tool, SCAN tool, which utilizes antibody-antigen surface binding as its core sensor technology. Our proposed SCAN tool is designed to provide an on-orbit… more
Abstract:During Phase I, Aurora Flight Sciences and the University of Massachusetts Lowell propose to demonstrate the feasibility of enhancing a commercially available out-of-autoclave (OOA) carbon prepreg material system (e.g. IM7/5320) via embedded structural health monitoring (SHM) and self-healing… more
Abstract:As part of the FAA's plans for modernization of the Air Traffic Control (ATC) system, Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B) will be the basis of the future surveillance system in the US, supplemented by the current Radar system.

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.
