Nuvotronics proposes a solid-state approach which will provide loss performance equal… more
Abstract:Automated testing will need to become an integral part in the PMA-281 T & E program and an automated testing program needs to be developed and implemented. Since PMA-281 programs will comply with the OSD UCS Architecture, which is Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)-based, the PMA-281 T & E… more
Abstract:An integrated oil quality and debris monitoring system is proposed to provide automated oil analysis capability directly on-platform. The overall program objective is to develop a packaging with form factor and interconnections that permit direct substitution of existing debris monitoring systems on… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: A new sensor for the measurement of ground reaction forces that terminate into the aircraft wheel-tire interface is proposed. Current measurement methods are limited to capturing normal force values. We propose the use of a thin-film sensor based on Innovative Scientific Solutions Inc… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Quantitative ablation recession rate measurements of heat shield surfaces are essential for evaluating the performance of heat shield materials. Currently, these measurements are limited to two-dimensional images that focus on the nose tip regression rate. For wedge testing, recession… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This proposal addresses an important need of DoD and MILSATCOM for satellite based receivers operating at Ka-Band having multiple beams (as many as 30) capability. Many of these beams need to be independently steered. This has traditionally been a major challenge because, as will be… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Corrosion damage in hidden and/or hard to access locations within aircraft structures and components can be difficult to detect and even more difficult to repair. The Air Force is seeking innovative technologies for dimensionally restoring aircraft aluminum components damaged by corrosion… more
Abstract:The NAVAIR Fleet Readiness Centers (FRC) have a critical need to repair high-value assets on NAVAIR aircraft. Due to lack of off-the-shelf OEM replacement parts, these operational centers are experiencing service challenges to meet the Fleet demand. The FRCs do not currently have a technically… more
Abstract:Several non-destructive inspection (NDI) techniques have been shown to successfully interrogate composite structures and defects at a low cost. However, in order to diagnose defects in unknown parts, a baseline set of data from known reference composite structures is necessary. A set of these… more
Abstract:Accurate, realtime detection of explosives is a demanding application. High detection accuracy with a low false positive rate is desired. Noise and
artifacts in reconstructed images, especially in the presence of metal, degrade the ability of detection algorithms to identify object's shape, volume,… more
Abstract:New technology is needed to replace 3He-based neutron proportional detectors for neutron scattering. This proposal addresses this need via development of a novel plasma panel based neutron detector designed to take advantage of low cost, large area, plasma display panel TV technology. A new type of… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Intelligent Automation, Inc. proposes a game-theoretic framework for the design and analysis of a robust decision making tool for wideband satellite communications that integrates hierarchical spectrum sharing, spectrum sensing, waveform adaptation and active anti-jamming. We capture… more
Abstract:Cyber-attacks threaten our security and impede American business. To counter cyber-security attacks, computational models of the entire cyber-security environments can provide many benefits. With our transition partners, we will create computational models that can play the roles of cyber-attacker,… more
Abstract:An Agent based Simulation and Optimization (ABSO) tool is proposed for evaluating HPRF weapon effectiveness in defending maritime assets against small boat attacks using dynamic sea surface engagement scenarios. For this effort, IAI will combine and extend i) Ray Tracing and Radiative Transfer (RT2)… more
Abstract:A recent U.S. Government Accountability Office report noted that that less than 1 percent of the 4,000-mile long border between the United States and Canada is under the operational control of U.S. Border Patrol. The large scale, and environmental conditions of the Northern Border pose specific… more
Abstract:Modeling of geographic and atmospheric environmental effects in radar training system is important. However, such capability is lacked in existing training system. High fidelity radar simulation tools with environmental effect models are not suitable for real-time training because the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Current methods for inspecting aircraft engine inlet and exhaust cavities are labor intensive and error prone. Airmen crawl into ducts looking for defects, trace suspected sites on Mylar sheets noting their position relative to cavity features, and manually enter the data into an… more
Abstract:The proposed Bio-Inspired Visual Navigation System will enable UGVs to operate semi-autonomously with minimal input from an operator even in degraded communication environments. Semi-autonomous landmark-based navigation in low-texture indoor environments is difficult due to the lack of distinctive… 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.
