From a networking point of view, the ensemble of UCAVs form a Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) with special characteristics. The… more
Abstract:Recent studies have shown that adapting wing geometry to meet flight load requirements yields optimal performance in disparate mission roles. Though current aircraft vary wing sweep and extend flaps to produce large scale flow changes, they have little control over the flow. Morphing aircraft… more

The… more
Abstract:The focus of this proposal is to develop a suite of decision aids components to accomplish planning/replanning, learning, and inference. These components can then be assembled into applications to accommodate different needs and perspectives at different levels of the command structure. The… more
Abstract:In this SBIR project we propose to integrate spacecraft control and vehicle health functions to improve the robustness and productivity of space operations. The main advantages of the proposed approach is that it allows the spacecraft to utilize failed control components with degraded performance to… more
Abstract:Scientific Systems Company Inc. (SSCI) and University of California, Berkeley (UCB) jointly propose to develop and implement computer-aided Autonomous Formation Flying Control Technology (AFF-CT) for heterogeneous formations of manned helicopters. One of the objectives … more
Abstract:Scientific Systems Company Inc. (SSCI) of Woburn MA and its subcontractor Lockheed Martin Tactical Systems (LMTS) of Eagan MN propose a radically new approach to expert systems theory that will greatly facilitate the effective design of BMD decision architectures. We will show that, as most… more
Abstract:There is no established standard in sharing data between various medical record systems. Thus the integration and sharing of data between systems has been difficult. Nevertheless, most medical databases nowadays use commercial database engines (e.g. oracle) as their backend. These commercial… more
Abstract:The objective of this project (Phases I and II) is to develop dynamic enterprise wide scheduling and optimization systems for allocations of health care provider personnel, medical equipment, and facilities resources under an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system for complex medical… more
Abstract:The survivability of Navy tactical surface ships operating in forward shallow water littoral environments largely depends upon the effectiveness of hull-mounted active sonar to detect, classify and localize threat sea mines. Employment of active sonar for mine avoidance in shallow water… more
Abstract:The Program Executive Office of the Littoral and Mine Warfare Systems (PMS 485) operates SURTASS TwinLine acoustic surveillance arrays in the Western Pacific where they encounter areas of intense fishing activity. The TwinLine array system consists of two acoustic streamers that are towed by a heavy… more
Abstract:The DD(X) program seeks to use off-board sensors as adjuncts to a robust own-ship capability. Optimal use of these off-board sensors requires tools for providing environmentally adaptive tools to perform optimal placement and processing of these multi-static sensors. The team of Applied… more
Abstract:Use of multi-static active sonar fields provides necessary and complementary coverage to on-board organic sensors of surface combatants. Effective field management and performance requires an effective means for planning the collection of, managing, gathering, detecting, classifying, localizing,… more
Abstract:The IUSS operators detect, localize, classify and report contacts of interest based on displays of acoustic data from one or more arrays of hydrophones. Currently, operators search through large amounts of information presented on acoustic displays. When there are a large number of arrays, the… more
Abstract:The Air Force requires C2 systems that support full spectrum of operations. This is specifically relevant to the air campaign mission planning and analysis community where there have been several recent concept changes, advancements in information technology, sensors, and weapons, and expansion in… more
Abstract:Recent military operations demonstrate the heavy reliance of U.S. military operations on space assets for intelligence, surveillance, communications, and targeting. Using anti-satellite methods such as lasers or kinetic energy vehicles, potential adversaries have the capability to attack space… more
Abstract:Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) algorithms are extremely sensitive to differences between the operating conditions (OCs) under which they are trained and the OCs in which the fielded algorithms operate. For ATR algorithms to robustly recognize targets while retaining low false alarm rates, they… more
Abstract:An agile US Air Force, if it is to be able to conduct operations in uncertain and unpredictable combat conditions, must be able to anticipate the logistical consequences of changes and/or failures in operational plans, and likewise anticipate the impact of logistical constraints on operations. To… more
Abstract:Recent military operations illustrate the importance of information dominance and the need to provide enhanced battlespace situation awareness (SA) to our warfighters. Enhanced battlespace SA ensures our warfighters have the requisite information to enable timely and accurate decision-making.… more
Abstract:Missile defense takes place in an unpredictable, real-time environment and thus requires an adaptive approach to optimization that dynamically allocates sensors and their supporting resources in response to changing goals and constraints. Here, we propose a system for Sensor Network Optimization… more
Abstract:The first and a key stage in military planning is the intelligence preparation of the battlespace (IPB). IPB is a continuous process that defines the battlespace environment and its effects and determines and evaluates likely enemy actions. Typically, characterization of the battlespace and its… more
Abstract:Recent operations have clarified the benefits of a centralized aerospace control concept under the authority of the Joint Force Air Component Commander (JFACC). However, these potential benefits can be compromised by the complexity of the JFACC's responsibilities, and the lack of available training… more
Abstract:We have developed a hybrid inference system for data fusion (DF) and situation assessment (SA) for multi-source intelligence analysis, with specific application to Marine Corps operations in urban environments. The approach views an urban environment as a complex dynamic system whose state vector is… more
Abstract:Because many future Army missions will increasingly rely on the performance of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in challenging operational environments, there is a need for novel human-system interfaces that improve the likelihood of mission success. We propose to iteratively design, develop, and… 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.
