Abstract:Using a small, cost-effective, expendable Tier I UAV specifically engineered for magnetic anomaly detection will be an effective way to augment the P8-A HAASW capabilities. Tier I UAVs offer many advantages over larger Tier II UAVs for this mission. The main ones being their lower costs and… more
Abstract:Most sonar and camera images in practice are inherently sparse yet highly non-stationary. Optimal prediction, sampling, representation, and estimation of such signals require locally adaptive decomposition that can quickly capture the signal characteristics within a small… more
Abstract:Our proposed research postulates that VLF signals of opportunity (SoOps), both natural and man-made, can be employed by submarines while operating at speed and depth to accurately estimate position and velocity as required by their hosted weapons systems (e.g. Trident II D5… more
Abstract:Currently there is no tactical decision aid (TDA) for magnetic anomaly detection (MAD). Since the P-8A has no MAD capability, the planned approach to the localization phase of anti-submarine warfare (ASW) is to have the P-8A launch a MAD-equipped unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).… 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.
