Abstract:DoD space surveillance and weapons systems require highly accurate inertial knowledge in absolute location and angular orientation. Current technologies providing these functions are not integrated into a single, light-weight, low-cost, power-efficient instrument. Applied Technology Associates… more
Abstract:For Airborne Inertial Rate Sensors, Applied Technology Associates (ATA) proposes to introduce a unique and enabling gyroscope technology based upon the principles of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) that meet all requirements for ABL operation, including flight environment, extreme slew and in precision… more
Abstract:As the Airborne Laser (ABL) comes closer to putting a high energy laser (HEL) on a boosting missile target, it has become obvious that a high bandwidth fast steering mirror (FSM) needs to be developed. This FSM must be capable of controlling large, 12-inch mirrors while handling the HEL power… more
Abstract:A key component of missile interceptor vehicles is the divert and attitude control system (DACS), which is responsible for maneuvering the interceptor vehicle to its target. A vital component to the DACS is the thruster, which provides effective control of vehicle divert. Solid propellant DACS… more
Abstract:A new material, based on a thermally-stable amorphous aluminophosphate composition (CerablakT), was investigated in Phase I, and demonstrated highly desirable dielectric properties suitable for next-generation hypersonic radomes. CerablakT is a low cost, solution derived material which has a unique… more
Abstract:78188S Ultra-Supercritical (USC) coal-fired power plants are being designed to meet the Vision 21 goals of fuel efficiency and environmental emission standards. The material systems for these plants will be required to limit degradation occuring from corrosion at elevated temperatures. Due to… more
Abstract:The US Navy is seeking improved fire protection systems with the primary goal to reduce the areal density based on the current 1 lb/sq ft baseline value. Recent tests with intumescent coatings were largely unsuccessful. Passive fire protection systems are preferable due to their relatively inert… more
Abstract:Barrier coatings to prevent moisture ingress into radome structures of advanced missile systems are a critical need for the Navy. Ingress of moisture during missile storage can degrade the critical sensor and guidance electronic components housed within the missile radome. The US Navy is… more
Abstract:The use of monolithic airfoil structures in static and rotating components such as one-piece integrally bladed rotors (IBR's) in military turbine engines has created an increased risk of high cycle fatigue (HCF). The Phase I SBIR studies recently demonstrated plasma sprayed hard coating concepts… more
Abstract:Innovative damping methods for small turbine engines are needed by the Army and other military and commercial interests. The plasma sprayed coating process provides a method for successfully achieving the required damping for the newer high efficiency turbine engines that experience high "g " loads… more
Abstract:Assessment of communications in simulation based training suffers from (1) slow pace, (2) a reliance on communications data to the exclusion of behavioral and contextual data, (3) use of a single language model to handle multiple forms of language, and (4) failure to systematically address Mission… more
Abstract:The Model-based Optimal System for Training (MOST) is an optimal Intelligent Team Tutoring System (ITTS) for training team and individual resource allocation skills. MOST will contain five models; (1) an optimal task performance model (expert model), (2) an optimal context model, (3) an optimal… more
Abstract:Formal training for senior leadership positions in the USAF is uncommon. USAF leaders typically receive little training to perform at the operational level. Therefore, we propose to develop a tool that will supplement their on-the-job training and benefit a variety of leadership positions. During… more
Abstract:Our Phase I effort demonstrated the potential for Complex Adaptive Systems theory (CAS) simulation modeling to help in strategy development regarding enemy's Courses of Action (COA). The Complex Adaptive System Strategy Interplay Environment (CASSIE) project discovered that numerical simulation… more
Abstract:Network centric warfare promises to increase information sharing and allow distribution of decision making. This will improve military effectiveness, but only if the situational awareness (SA) of warfighters is correctly aligned. IMAGES is a software tool that will infer the cognitive states of… more
Abstract:In any mission involving hierarchical levels of command, a key success factor is the clear communication of intent, as well as a common understanding of the ongoing situation, across levels of command. In practice, however, command intent may be distorted as subordinates communicate goals downward,… more
Abstract:The objective of the proposed work is to utilize innovative optimization algorithms and normative engineering models for the design of Army organizations. This system will increase productivity and efficiency of Army organizations by identifying critical factors in organizational structure, resource… more
Abstract:Increasingly, the Army has become engaged in "operations other than war." Compared to traditional combat operations, these missions are considerably more complex and ill-defined. Success in these operations requires that Army leaders view problems from a Joint Forces mindset, recognize the long-term… more
Abstract:Future C4ISR capabilities must provide warfighters with the abilities to clearly and comprehensively understand the battlespace and quickly decide on appropriate courses of action. Future systems must account for the cognitive capabilities and limitations of users, giving warfighters the ability to… more
Abstract:The U.S. Navy is taking advantage of the revolution in information technology to support rapid evolution of its command and control systems. Along with the ability to rapidly reconfigure displays and controls, however, comes the need to rigorously evaluate the effectiveness of new human-machine… more
Abstract:Network centric warfare offers increased connectivity across echelons, enabling smaller, lighter units to behave with greater independence and respond faster to changing operational contexts. Nowhere is this capability more valuable than in Special Warfare, where small teams seek to move rapidly,… more
Abstract:This proposal arises from an attempt to design a computer suitable for the efficient execution of software that displays human-like cognitive abilities. Examples of such software applications include natural language understanding, text processing, conceptually based internet search, natural… more
Abstract:A major requirement for effective weapon system evaluation, construct development, and training in constructive simulations is the ability to adequately represent behaviors in response to suppressive fire during urban combat. Current simulations lack adequate representation of the behavioral… more
Abstract:We propose to develop a discrete event simulation tool for evaluation and analysis of the components of a real-time, distributed computing/communications environment. This environment consists of communications equipment and the human decision makers whose tasks are facilitated by this equipment. … 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.
