The proposed product will be… more
Abstract:There are many orders of magnitude light intensity differentiation from a dark room to sunlight. Because standard linear CMOS and CCD image sensors can only offer up to approximately 60 dB of dynamic range, they are prone to saturation or darkness in high contrast scenes. Work in this proposed… more

Abstract:The Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) program has need of a programmable and extensible wireless channel impairment emulator accommodating networks of 8 to 100 radio nodes operating in a frequency range of 2 MHz to 2 GHz. The emulator should be high fidelity, broadband, have a range resolution of 0… more
Abstract:In recent years, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have become a key component in the Army"s intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) infrastructure. Small, hand-launchable UAVs in particular are a key component as they allow individual units to gather critical information from safe… more
Abstract:Military and civilian platforms increasingly rely on the Global Positioning System (GPS) system for not only navigation and position, but also communication and time. The susceptibility of GPS to sources of intentional and unintentional interference increases the vulnerability of such platforms. The… more
Abstract:Video sensors provide a wealth of valuable information, including the location, motion, and appearance of military and civilian vehicles, people, and objects in an area of regard. Unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) provide a platform with characteristics suited for persistent surveillance,… more
Abstract:Discriminating between dismounts, fauna, vehicle, blowing vegetation, and other moving objects detectable by Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI) radar is of great importance for many surveillance and reconnaissance tasks. Current state-of-the-art discrimination algorithms usually involve… 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.
