Abstract:… vision market, traditionally dominated by 2D techniques. Fast 3D vision and measurement systems will have endless applicatons, rainging from military and manufacturing to robotics, medicinge, and textiles. Examples include: whole shape measurement of a vehicle for radar… more
Abstract:…ll draw upon its experience as the mechanical designers of the Antarctic volcano exploration robot, Dante, to create a design which overcomes much of the difficulties associated with fluid perturbations by emphasizing stability, a conservative gait, and a straightforward vehicle… more
Abstract:… of the reflective sheeting. Our proposed method uses individual randomly oriented microspheres (glass spheres with a size range of 15 - 30 micrometers in diameter), partially coated with a reflecting surface of aluminum, and incorporated into a liquid carrier vehicle… more
Abstract:Insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBT) represent the standard component in converters for electric vehicles and motor control. However, they are a mature technology where only marginal performance improvements can be expected, and improvements in IGBT based converter… more
Abstract:AN IMPORTANT NEED EXISTS IN THE TRANSPORTATION INDUSTRY FOR A RELIABLE, UNOBTRUSIVE DEVICE TO WARN VEHICLE OPERATORS OF REDUCED ALERTNESS. RESEARCHERS SUGGEST THAT 35-50% OF ALL HIGHWAY FATALITIES ARE CAUSED BY MEASURABLE LEVELS OF REDUCED DRIVER ALERTNESS. UNFORTUNATELY… more
Abstract:… Simulation (DIS) protocol wastes bandwidth. This severely limits the number of network entities on bandwidth-constrained long-haul networks (LHNs). DIS is a fairly static protocol, in that it is difficult, time-consuming, and costly to add new types of vehicles and… more
Abstract:… imaging applications are well understood. In Phase 1, MSI plans to demonstrate the benefits of 1-3 piezoelectric composites on two large array systems of current applications interest to the US Navy: The Advanced Mine Detection System (AMDS) and Unmanned Underwater Vehicle… more
Abstract:… of the HUMVEE is extremely poor due to its limited wheel travel, high spring rates and lack of shock absorber damping. This is unfortunate since the basic size and layout has the potential to work extremely well due to its wide track and long wheel base. The HTMMP vehicle… more
Abstract:Translated GPS tracking systems are frequently used to track missiles, aircraft, and other aerospace vehicle for applications requiring real-time position and velocity. The GPS/TPS tracking system provides intermediate data that is recorded during tracking and available for… more
Abstract:…f the motorist is computed. The central processing is aided by data from a map database when fewer than four satellites are in veiw of the sensor. The TIDGET requires no initialization or warm-up time since there is no processing of the data performed at the vehicle In large… more
Abstract:The development and implementation of nonlinear, learning control systems for Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs) will have three major impacts upon their capabilities; increased survivability, extended range of operations, and reduced development costs. The Learning Optimal Control… more
Abstract:… pattern recognition technology for the development of a rotorcraft limit avoidance system is proposed. The system is based on a feature extraction algorithm and an artificial neural network. Feature extraction and pattern classification systems are designed using flight … more
Abstract:Detailed models of limited aspects of vehicle performance are currently used in engineering development, e.g., DADDS, BRL-CAD/SQUASH, PRISM, etc. There is a need for an integrated model which analyzes the interactions among subsystems and evaluates performance of multiple… more
Abstract:…fort will represent an extension and refocusing of that work. We have fielded a commercial product that can serve as a demonstration tool. Our experience in designing and building mission planning systems will help insure a robust and flexible design with a good pilot-vehicle… more
Abstract:…earby wall, which has led to problems of chamber wall streaking and pitting, reduced performance and shortened chamber life; and (4) precision of start and stop thrust curves and precision of impulse for short pulses, which makes the controllability of space vehicles more… more
Abstract:This proposed effort will develop the Voice Activated Poor Visibility Emergency Response Systems (VAPERS) by combining hardware and software concepts in a manner that will significantly increase Crash-Fire-Rescue (CFR) vehicle effectiveness without a corresponding increase in… more
Abstract:ORINCON proposes to investigate real-time pattern recognition techniques that exploit the multiresolution properties of the discrete wavelet transform (DWT). We will process one-dimensional acoustic signals and two-dimensional visual and thermal images of vehicles provided 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.
