Abstract:A fundamental issue with high average current photoelectron guns is the generation of stray electrons and ions which can damage the photoemitter. Both the photogenerated electron bunch and any field emitted electrons can potentially directly impact the photocathode, desorb molecules from the gun… more
Abstract:This project will result in investigation and modeling of heat flow in a Bi2Te3-Sb2Te3 superlattice based thermoelectric cooler stack and the development of the series of processes for negative electron affinity activation of the stack substrate as a basis for an advanced sensor cooler in which… more
Abstract:SPAWAR requires a high fidelity simulation of Radio Security Services (RSS) to enhance testing of Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) networking waveforms. Waveforms and enhancements are evaluated using a JTRS Surrogate Radio (JSR). We propose to modify a JSR through installation of radio security… more
Abstract:There exists a need for a RF channel simulation framework that can aid in the analysis of the next generation of mobile multi-protocol wideband tactical systems such as JTRS operating under challenging channel conditions. To address this need, Scalable Networks and UCLA propose to develop a… more
Abstract:Mobile Ad-hoc Networking is the central concept employed in the JTRS waveforms, especially the WNW waveform. Due to the cross-layered nature of MANETs, the performance of the WNW network is greatly influenced by the network configuration settings (IP subnet schema, radio channel bandwidth, and… more
Abstract:The primary objective of the MUOS Modeling and Evaluation Environment (M2E2) tool-kit is to develop the capability that allows for accurate technical and operational insights into end-to-end performance of DoD"s Mobile User Object System (MUOS) and its interoperability with other JTRS networks.… more
Abstract:The concept of Live Virtual Constructive testing (LVC) is a central tenet for Operational Test Commands BCNIS program, which will provide realistic situational awareness (SA) and command and control (C2) tactical environment to support operational testing of future communication assets, without the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Complications arising from pathogen infection incur a tremendous societal cost both in morbidity and mortality (as high as 50-60%), as well as in care and treatment estimated in billions of dollars. In susceptible patients, infection induces mis-regulation of the… more
Abstract:With the information age has come a dramatic increase in our ability to generate and collect data while the traditional techniques to analyze this tsunami of data have proven woefully inadequate. The amount of data collected and stored electronically is doubling every three years. Many researchers… more
Abstract:The problem: Nutrient concentration has a direct effect on the yield and quality of plants. However, despite their importance, they are frequently over applied and, if their concentration is thought to be incorrect, they are discarded into the environment and replaced with a new solution. This leads… more
Abstract:We have proposed the development of a novel, low frequency, directed energy concept for neutralizing IEDs at a safe distance in front of moving vehicles. The concept is based on launching an"Energetic RF Zenneck-mode Surface Waves"(Z-waves), which unlike conventional RF free field… more
Abstract:The ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan have highlighted the benefits and limitations of small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) operated by front-line combat units and special operations forces. The real-time imagery provided by narrow field of view electro-optical or infrared (EO/IR) cameras… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Five small UAV payloads were designed that can detect and geolocate RF emitters. These systems provide coverage for VHF, UHF, GSM-900e, and GSM-1800. These systems are size, weight, and power compatible with Wasp, Raven, and Puma UAVs. Each system is a scalable and modular design, which… 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.
