Carver performs real time querying and viewing of information about all or parts of a tactical ad hoc network. Carver employs agents distributed across the tactical ad hoc… more
Abstract:Warfighters need real-time intelligence information that supports their missions. However, this intelligence is not readily available from a single source. Intelligence data queries can give incomplete results when users are not sure how to "ask" in the best way, they cannot query for information… more
Abstract:The military is investigating the use of autonomous systems to support combat troops and reduce their exposure to dangerous situations. Many of the applicable missions require the coordination of multiple unmanned systems. This Phase I effort addresses the issue of coordinating multiple robots… more
Abstract:The Domain Name Server (DNS) is a distributed database that provides name resolution between domain names and IP addresses. The DNS Infrastructure is vulnerable to Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, which can result in catastrophic consequences for the both military and civilian users of the Internet.… more
Abstract:ARCON Corporation, in collaboration with The Pennsylvania State University Applied Research Laboratory, proposes to develop a genetic algorithm (GA) that places multiple antennas and/or arrays on a platform in order to optimize the radiation pattern objectives and spectrum co-utilization. We will… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a novel, compact, low cost, semiconductor transmitter to serve as a guide star source. The same technology will be extended in a very straightforward fashion to produce a polychromatic guide star (PGS) source. This program… more
Abstract:Technology research and development in such areas as next-generation atomic clocks, quantum information processing with trapped ions, and atomic spectroscopy is impeded by the lack of commercially available laser sources that meet the required specifications of wavelength tuning range, output power,… more
Abstract:In recent years the number, capabilities, and types of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) has grown dramatically, resulting in an increase in the variety and complexity of mission scenarios for these vehicles. The successful proliferation of UAV assets into missions, such as convoy protection,… more
Abstract:The proliferation of unmanned surveillance & reconnaissance aircraft is reaching our enemies. In order to accomplish covert missions, our Special Operations Forces must avoid being observed by this expanding enemy capability. The ability to organically eliminate the threat of an enemy UAV would… more
Abstract:Range-Resolved Doppler Imaging (RRDI) ladar has been singled out as the most promising advanced discrimination technology to augment existing advanced seekers on board MDA missile interceptors. Efforts are underway to develop compact RRDI ladar seekers to test against objective decoys and targets.… more
Abstract:To counter emerging threats of theater ballistic missiles the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) has sponsored the development of the Airborne Laser (ABL) system that will locate and track missiles in the boost phase of their flight, then accurately point and fire a high-energy laser, destroying enemy… more
Abstract:Arete will use a physically realistic sophisticated non-linear simulation of wind-generated gravity and capillary waves called the Irrotational Green Water Model and/or the "Convergent Stokes Waves" Model to meet the objectives of this SBIR solicitation. The realistic ocean surface simulation will… more
Abstract:As US military mission change on the modern battlefield, so must the techniques and algorithms providing battlespace awareness. Asymmetric threats such as civilian vehicles operating in urban environments are increasingly becoming important. Current GMTI systems have difficulty in generating and… more
Abstract:Techniques to retrieve militarily relevant parameters of the nearshore region using panchromatic or single-channel electro-optical (EO) data have been demonstrated. However, airborne sensors are being developed and fielded that collect multi-spectral data and the present-day methods do not take… more
Abstract:Aret, Associates is proud to offer a unique approach to address the stabilized laser designator in a compact robust package that will provide the light weight, high performance absent in existing approaches. Aret, Associates' SCan-mirror Inertial Laser Stabilizer (SCILS) system being proposed here… more
Abstract:Directed energy (DE) is widely viewed as a transformational game changer technology in military operations. Applications in space control, force protection, counter rockets, artillery and mortars (CRAM), and defense against man portable air defense systems (MANPADS) are of particular interest due to… more
Abstract:Dynamic Scene Analysis - a real time implementation of an image registration, target detection, tracking, and geo-location software product. Registration is based upon Mutual Information, a more efficient and robust technique than traditional feature-based methods. Reference imagery and live imagery… more
Abstract:This project develops an innovative, enabling technology for precision attitude control of Penetrating Munitions. An imaging sensor system is used to precisely measure airframe attitude relative to the velocity vector. The measurement is used by the autopilot to accurately align the airframe with… more
Abstract:Arete Associates proposes to create the software application PERICLES (PERIscope CLassification of Ships) to automatically recognize and classify marine targets viewed in a submarine imaging system.
Abstract:The Objective of the Phase 1 AROSS program was to develop a system concept that could provide coastal zone wave spectra measurements and promote scientific advances in littoral oceanography. Coastal wave spectra measurements were based on space/time imaging for algorithm development. The resulting… 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.
