Abstract:This proposal acknowledges the challenges with developing Carrier Strike Group (CGS) This proposal acknowledges the challenges with developing Carrier Strike Group (CGS) Undersea Warfare mission plans and maintaining shared situational awareness. As CSG ASW sensor and sensor processing systems have… more
Abstract:The US Navy seeks the development of a miniature transponder locator unit, capable of sustaining high shock loads that can be placed in both lightweight and heavyweight exercise torpedoes for rapid torpedo recovery. Currently, a considerable amount of time and resources is expended to visually… more
Abstract:This proposal recognizes the complexity of Situational Awareness (SA) in the context of information base warfare paradigms. The principal objective of the Phase II effort is to prototype an innovated"binary"approach to establish SA scoring. Our approach breaks down complex problems into… more
Abstract:The US Navy currently spends millions of dollars per year on consumable tapes to store acoustic sensor and track data during exercises and missions. These tapes are cumbersome and have a limited life in terms of read/write cycles. Tapes are typically recorded to only once. Tape drives are bulky and… more
Abstract:Our Context-Aware Multiple Objective Planning (CMOP) is focused on the expansion and refinement of the mission planning capability in order to more fully support the capabilities required by Under Sea Warfare Decision Support System (USW-DSS). This includes expanding the spatial-temporal and… more
Abstract:Adaptive Technologies, Inc. (ATI) and Fortress Technologies have teamed to develop advances in flight deck data and voice communications for use by the Aviation Data Management and Control System (ADMACS) program. This unique challenge of providing operational, noise-free, speech driven data… more
Abstract:Outdoor wood-fired boilers (OWB) are gaining in popularity for heating homes. As energy prices have risen, sales of OWBs are doubling each year because they provide a lower cost solution and use renewable fuel. There is concern about their air emissions, however. OWBs typically emit 18 times the… more
Abstract:The ADMA and PNNL team will pursue this Program with the overall objective of developing a novel membrane device for harvesting of potable water directly from ambient air or other humid gas stream. This new product technology is based on recent inventions made at PNNL about preparation of an ultra… more
Abstract:Wildlife Computers presents a remote release device for use with marine mammal data-logging tags proposed with three variations to suit cetaceans and large and small pinnipeds. The device uses innovative approaches such as ElectRelease epoxy for the releasing mechanism and an Argos-based signaling… more
Abstract:Based on our proprietary fiber technology and extensive experience in fiber laser development, a new single-frequency 2Â?Ãm fiber laser source will be developed. The source includes advanced frequency-locking schemes for both center-line locking and offset-frequency locking, so as to address the… more
Abstract:In this proposal, we propose to demonstrate and build a widely tunable, narrow linewidth, single frequency fiber laser by developing an innovative Er/Yb-co-doped single mode fiber. Such a fiber laser is needed for coherent lidar and interferometric fiber sensing. In Phase I, we will design and… more
Abstract:There is an urgent need to develop a new high-energy 2m ultrafast fiber laser system in order to achieve the optimized efficiency of the ESASE process, which is beneficial in areas ranging from atomic and molecular sciences to chemical, materials, and biological studies.

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.
