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:Applied Visions, Inc.(AVI) proposes to leverage the technology of computer games to provide a powerful new method of predicting and visualizing the potential movement of time critical moving targets for operators of the FCS and FFW networked effects nodes. Our research will build upon the results… more
Abstract:Applied Visions, Inc. (AVI) is pleased to present this proposal for a Phase II follow-on effort to our Phase I work on Topic N04-231 "Display and Visualization of Movement Predictions for Ground Vehicles". The core of the problem to be solved is that of minimizing the area of uncertainty (AOU) for… more
Abstract:Net-centric warfare places burdens on mission planners and commanders to understand dependencies, readiness, mobility, interoperability, and risk of cyber assets in addition to kinetic assets. They need to know "which computing assets are required for the success of the mission," "are there threats… 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

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
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.
