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. We will leverage Welch Engineering's expertise in inertial navigation system software design for… more
Abstract:Currently, the measurement of environmental parameters such as temperature, humidity, shock and vibration are used to monitor the integrity of stored missile and associated electronic support equipment. Unfortunately, it is generally a complex combination of these environmental parameters,… more
Abstract:Composite technology exists for application to cryogenic fluid storage without an interface liner. This technology is being applied to an LH2 storage pressure vessel under Air Force Contract F29601-C-0217. This proposal outlines a program to transfer the LH2 composite technology to liquid rocket… more
Abstract:The current status of the technology being developed for linerless cryogenic storage tanks by the Wilson Composite Group, inc. utilizes a toughened epoxy resin. This resin requires pressure application during the cure cycle and use of an autoclave. Since large size autoclaves are limited in… more
Abstract:WINTEC proposes to define an interface for integrating a new generation of smart munitions with carrying dispensers. The proposed interface will be compatible with MIL-STD-1760 and will build on the "plug and play" concept of the commercial personal computer architectures. The defined interface… more
Abstract:WideGap Technology (WiTech) proposes to develop native oxide based electronics in Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) technology that has the potential of revolutionizing the high speed IC industry. With the proliferation of wireless communications, a huge market has opened up for efficient, low power, high… 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.
