A trade-off analysis of the GPS and INS modules will include different types… more
Abstract:The primary objective of this three phase (Definition; Detail Design & Development; Implementation) project is to create the generic core of a computer based Production Cost Model (PCM) to support Program Offices in their attainment of several Acquisition Reform Initiatives. The PCM supports the… more
Abstract:It would be highly desirable for military aircraft to utilize low-power radar when operating in all-weather conditions and low altitudes. The problem with this class of radar is that it requires a large antenna to receive an acceptable return to conduct operations. While such an antenna is… more
Abstract:Wanlass Industries Inc. (WI) proposes to improve the probability of kill (Pk) of a 5-inch air-to-surface missile by incorporating an innovative GPS receiver and phase processing system. By limiting the data used from the GPS transmission to relative phase, frequency and innovative… more

Abstract:A quasi-optical phased array architecture is widely regarded as the most promising candidate for electronically scanning antennas. The key components of phased arrays are tunable phase-shifters or true time delay elements. One antenna may contain dozens to thousands of these elements which are very… more
Abstract:WaveBand Corporation proposes to develop a design and implement a distributed, retina-like biological vision model that performs multi-resolution feature extraction at the sensor level, and outputs transformation coefficients for further processing. The approach incorporates our present… more
Abstract:This project is aimed at the design and eventual fabrication (in Phase II) of microwave and millimeter-wave components utilizing Photonic Band Gap Structures. Current trends in device miniaturization and integration, especially in the development of microwave monolithic integrated circuits, calls… more
Abstract:WaveBand Corporation proposes to develop a novel, biological vision model that improves autonomous seeker performance by performing multi-resolution feature extraction at the sensor level, and integrating these extracted features into a consistent representation of the combat scene using a parallel… more
Abstract:WaveBand Corporation (WaveBand) proposes to develop a new passive MMW imaging (PMMWI) System that will be distinguished by low cost, high-speed 2-D scanning, and wide-band operation. The key element of the proposed system is a novel scanning antenna based on an already experimentally tested concept… more
Abstract:WaveBand Corporation has developed a new approach to steering an antenna by means of a plasma grating positioned in a planar semiconductor waveguide. The new approach exhibits the beamforming flexibility usually attributed to phased array antennas but is much more cost effective and thus has high… more
Abstract:The goal of this effort is to develop high efficiency optical switching systems based on free space switchable gratings. The use of switched gratings as an enabling technology to arbitrarily steer RF modulated optical carriers from 1 to any of N channels or alternatively from among N input to N… more
Abstract:The goal of this effort is to develop optical interconnection technology for high performance image processing. Conventional intra-computer electrical communication, for example between multi-chip modules (MCMs), is a limiting problem in future image processors. The pin count needed between high… more
Abstract:The goal of this effort is to establish the feasibility and advantages of a new class of wide angle optical field flatteners which exhibit superior resolution and insertion loss when compared with other fiber-based approaches and, unlike the classical Piazzi-Smyth field flatteners, have a nearly… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (adapted from applicant's abstract): The applicant proposes to utilize the multimedia and hypertext-media capabilities of the World Wide Web to develop a complete, comprehensive set of resources for scientific and medical disciplines that are subsumed within the field of sleep. These… more
Abstract:The Welch Engineering and Hughes Space and Communications (WE/HSC) team is pleased to propose a GPS aided Inertial Navigation System (INS) enabled by Microelectromechnical Systems (MEMS) technology.

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.
