Abstract:The technological systems on which today's war-fighters depend, reflecting today's society, are vulnerable to the effects of sudden high-energy events from our Sun. Because the propagation speed for sudden increases in X-rays from a solar flare is the speed of light, it is necessary to… more
Abstract:Ultra-stable and accurate frequency and timing devices such as atomic clocks are essential for modern communication, navigation, surveillance, and missile guidance systems. There are many atomic oscillators such as neutral calcium and neutral ytterbium that produce clock signal in optical domain.… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Data compression schemes generally fall into two main categories: lossless and lossy. Lossless schemes promise to provide an uncompressed file which is identical before and after compression. As lossless schemes must be able to reconstruct every feature of the original file they often… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Numerica is proposing to extend its mature multiple hypothesis tracking (MHT) technology by providing additional estimation and data fusion algorithms to support improved space object detection, tracking, identification, and characterization. An extended program would aim to develop a… more
Abstract:Numerica is proposing a data-driven approach using modern state-of-the-art machine learning methods on sparse feature representations of non-resolved photometric data, for space object characterization, classification, and anomaly/change detection in support of threat identification and notification… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Global Positioning System (GPS) is relied upon as a source of accurate Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) information by both civilians and the military. Ideally, GPS receivers receive navigation signals from the satellites, process the information, and provide correct PNT… more
Abstract:Drifting mines pose a serious threat to the safe passage of US and international naval and commercial shipping traffic. In this SBIR, OASIS Inc. proposes to combine two algorithms developed under ONR/SPAWAR funding into a Mine Drift Tactical Decision Aid (MD-TDA). These algorithms include a tracer… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Oceanit proposes to reduce employee exposure to hazardous noise during Blast Cleaning Room (BCR) and Blast Cabinet (BC) abrasive media blasting operations below OSHA 8-hour Time Weighted Average without increasing ergonomic stress on the operator. This will be done using an engineering… more
Abstract:Oceanit proposes to develop an ASM system using a novel sigan processing technique. The proposed technique enables agile detection, location and identification of threat signals. The proposed sampling technique reduces the amount of data without impairing radar capabilities, thus enabling persistent… more
Abstract:Optical Physics Company (OPC) is proposing a GPS independent navigation solution for high speed airborne platforms. The technique uses OPC"s interferometric star tracker which has been shown to be accurate and sensitive enough to provide high accuracy fixes (latitude, longitude and altitude). … more
Abstract:Optical Physics Company (OPC) is proposing a GPS independent navigation solution which will apply to a variety of platforms from vehicles on the ground to spacecraft in GEO. The approach offers game changing capability, minimal infrastructure costs, and ability to operate in completely RF-jammed… more
Abstract:Traditional methods of manufacturing ceramic domes with an embedded grid involves manufacturing two thin and precise domes that fit together, placing a grid between them, and bonding the assembly together. This method is costly as the optician has to make two precise domes to make"embedded grid… more
Abstract:The ultimate goal of the SOAR program is to develop robust hardware and algorithms for low light, passive terrain sensing. The SOAR system will provide the Navy, other DoD agencies, and even consumers with a solution for real-time obstacle avoidance for large and small airborne platforms. During… more
Abstract:The proposed project will undertake the research, design, and development of key concepts and technologies for a high-speed electronically tunable channel filter, based on monolithically integrated ultra-high-resolution super-compact grating (UHR-SCG) technology that has been developed in OptoNet.… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: OPTRA proposes the development of a three-band visible (VIS), shortwave infrared (SWIR), and midwave infrared (MWIR) high dynamic range digital micromirror device (DMD)-based scene projector incorporating OPTRA"s patented structured illumination technique for achieving low background… more
Abstract:There exists a need to develop a control actuation system to impart course correction for spinning rounds. Orbital Research proposes to design and develop a novel low-power scalable control actuation system capable of imparting persistent course correction for spinning, gun-fired munitions. The… more
Abstract:ORBITEC proposes to develop the Advanced Reversible Cryogenic Thermal Energy Storage (ARCTES) system, which will provide temporary backup cooling for circulating helium gas coolant in high-temperature superconducting (HTS) systems for naval applications. The ARCTES will rely on an initially-frozen… more
Abstract:In Phase I RANCOR successfully demonstrated an innovative enabling humidity control technology to provide very low humidity air to water sensitive, fully reusable CO2 adsorbents. The use of adsorbents enables complete reusability/rechargability and reduces the total heat load on the SCBA to the… more
Abstract:Terrorist attacks (e.g. USS Cole, chemical and biological warfare) and accident recovery (e.g. TWA 800, Ehime Maru) can require extensive Navy dive operations in contaminated, hazardous environments. However, current diving equipment was not designed to operate in such conditions, much less protect… more
Abstract:Hypoxia is a dangerous condition for naval aviators that impacts critical thinking, resulting in a lack of awareness that prevents aircrew from taking appropriate corrective actions. Practical hypoxia training allows pilots to experience the effects of hypoxia so that the symptoms are more readily… 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.
