Abstract:This proposal presents the VAMAV system (Visual Awareness/Avoidance for a Micro Air Vehicle) for monocular visual collision detection and avoidance. Real time collision detection will be implemented using a time-to-collision approach based on area moment estimates of expansion from globally optimal… more
Abstract:Sensor management of dispersed and disparate EO/IR sensors presents a daunting theoretical and practical challenge. Scientific Systems Company, Inc. of Woburn MA and its subcontractor, Lockheed Martin MS2 Tactical Systems (LMTS) of Eagan MN, propose a foundational, control-theoretic approach that is… more
Abstract:Bose-Einstein condensates in magnetic traps and waveguides produced by microfabricated structures hold great promise for new quantum devices exploiting atomic matter waves, such as interferometers for precise measurements of rotation and acceleration. The major objectives of Phase I will be to… more
Abstract:Our objective is to devise a comprehensive and effective methodology for offering software anti-tamper protection via algorithm obfuscation. A primary Phase I goal will be to apply our techniques in the Kalman Filter setting, and use this as a baseline against which we can compare their… more
Abstract:Raydiance and the Massachussets Institute of Technology are proposing to investigate hollow core photonic bandgap fibers and related waveguide architectures for pulse compression and delivery of ultrashort high peak power pulses. Photonic bandgap fibers, and especially Bragg fibers, are particularly… more
Abstract:Damage sustained on board a US Naval vessel is a serious situation. Rapid situational assessment of a damaged compartment by a rugged, hand-deployed, situational sensor would be advantageous in coordinating a response, mitigating additional damage to the ship and crew, and preserving the ship's… more
Abstract:Environmental adaptation is critical to the success of vital ASW missions. Environmental adaptation is particularly important for confident and effective multi-static active ASW in challenging littoral waters characterized by a high degree of uncertainty and variability. Acoustic sources are… more
Abstract:Marine mammals are often found in areas where US Navy ASW test operations are carried out. Several events have raised levels of concern that sonar emission could be causing deleterious impacts on marine mammals. For instance, in March of 2000, a mass stranding of beaked whales [NOAA report Dec 20,… more
Abstract:UUVs will perform important, force multiplying missions such as intelligence, surveillance, mine countermeasures, tactical oceanography, navigation and anti-submarine warfare. The missions they perform will be autonomous, low risk, and have low observability which will reduce risk to our forces. It… more
Abstract:This Phase 2 project will develop and integrate intelligent controller technology into the Navy's Undersea Warfare-Decision Support System (USW-DSS). Technologies to be developed include (1) XMAP cross-platform sensor data fusion, (2) XMAP contact state estimation, and (3) common tactical picture… 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.
