Abstract:This project focuses on the design and analysis of a scale-free routing approach for mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) that we call automatic incremental routing (AIR), because routing to any destination is automatic from the routing labels assigned to nodes, and incremental in that each node only… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Microstructure heterogeneities occur commonly in metallic aerospace materials. These are sometimes desired and exploited in tailoring location specific properties (e.g., turbine disks with gradient microstructures). In other instances, they might be undesirable because they lead to… more

Abstract:Advanced pulsed power capacitors with energy densities of above 10 J/cc and high breakdown strength are required for the military of the future. While polymers such as BOPP and PET offer excellent loss characteristics, their low energy density has led to a search for alternative polymer dielectrics… more
Abstract:Conventional generation of a high-quality RF carrier (signal) beyond 50GHz requires high precision cavity engineering that inherently restricts contiguous bandwidth coverage. Worse, even if one were capable of fabricating a set of such stabilized, frequency-dense cavities to mimic discrete 30-120GHz… more

Specifically, the ever increasing processing power of the dedicating computing processors has availed a steady increase in the ability of complex communication… more
Abstract:Spectral beam combination (SBC) of fiber lasers is the most practical approach to DEW-class HELs using diode-pumped fiber lasers. Use of conventional diffraction gratings to combine wavelengths is limited in that metal is inherently absorbing. Regardless of the metal layer thickness, optical power… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: In contrast to the NIR band, which is supported by an infrastructure of devices developed to serve telecommunication applications, the SWIR band remains out of reach for critical defense applications. While it is relatively simple to construct a low-noise oscillator within the… 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.
