Abstract:The goal of this Phase II program is to develop a simulation tool to estimate the aerodynamic effects of variable surface roughness, such as from the surface abrasion of helicopter rotor blades and the protective coatings that are applied to counteract it. The modeling is based on a displacement of… more
Abstract:The goal of the proposed research is to develop self-healing embedded communication antennas to be used in transparent armori.e., ground vehicle windows. Embedded antennas are known to delaminate from their host structures after impact; this allows an empty space to form around the antenna and as a… more
Abstract:NextGen Aeronautics (NextGen) is proposing an innovative actuation concept that minimizes SWaP impact on munitions. The proposed actuation system will be designed to survive ultra-high gun-fired munitions inertial loads, insensitive requirements, long storage, and transportation conditions.… more
Abstract:NextGen Aeronautics teaming with the group of Prof. John Hart at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology addresses the challenges of producing well aligned ultra-long carbon nanotube (CNT) fibers. Recent important developments have shown that individual CNTs can be grown to previously… more
Abstract:Phase II.5 proposal, extension of Phase II contract N00014-10-C-0255. Data collection and management of operational aircraft data is a critical enabler of effective condition based maintenance (CBM+). However, the large volumes of data collected create accessibility problems that limit the… more
Abstract:Robotic Research, LLC, (RR) proposes to create the Simplified 3D World Generation (S3WG)Plugin, which can be applied to Virtual BattleSpace 2 (VBS2), a training tool for military, law enforcement, first responders, and others in federal, state, and local government.This tool provides realistic… more
Abstract:The objective for Phase I of WESS is to investigate a constant force winch system for use on an unmanned surface vehicle (USV) as part of the Unmanned Influence Sweep System (UISS). The UISS provides a semi-autonomous minesweeping function with both stand-off and long endurance. The AN/AWS-10A sonar… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Cyber-attacks are increasing in frequency, impact, and complexity, which demonstrate extensive vulnerabilities of networks with the potential for catastrophic damage. Defending against these cyber-attacks requires network security situation awareness (SA) through distributed collaborative… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: In the Phase I effort, IFT proposed a Holistic networking Infrastructure for tactical Satellite Communication Networks (HISCoN). It supports optimal network resource management and cross-layer cooperation that allow satellite communication networks to intelligently accommodate the… more
Abstract:In this proposal, Intelligent Fusion Technology, Inc (IFT) proposes a novel Game-Theoretic Distributed Sensor Management tool to meet the special requirements of the Air Force for RSO detection, Classification and Tracking. The proposed tool contains i) distributed active learning and distributed… more
Abstract:To address the DOE need for a high-power laser source used for synchronous photoinjection of GaAs photoemission guns, AdValue Photonics proposes to develop a radio-frequency (RF) synchronized 100W green fiber laser source with a repetition rate near 1GHz. Although GHz-rate mode-locked… more
Abstract:Todays approaches to production planning and inventory management in a distribution network for large industrial gases and chemicals manufacturers are based on static snap-shot data and are not suitable for real-time use in tactical demand fulfillment. Companies have yet to harness the potential of… more
Abstract:Generation IV Gas-Cooled Reactors require advanced structural materials capable of resisting
extreme conditions of radiation exposure, high heat flux, corrosive environments and thermo- mechanical stresses. Metallic alloys such as stainless steel and Zircaloy used in fabricating fuel assembly grids… more
Abstract:The collection, documentation, and transportation of contaminated material are sensitive and time consuming processes. Samples collected from nuclear related incidents complicate the process further. Proper packaging of technical nuclear forensic (TNF) samples is critical to maintaining the… more

These syntactic foams have a combination of low density and high strength, modulus, and damage tolerance. Aluminum/hollow ceramic… more
Abstract:The U.S.s global leadership position in the manufacture of high value chemicals (HVCs) relies on its ability to produce and utilize simple and useful organic (SUO) building block chemicals, a $400 billion a year enterprise based on nonrenewable petroleum feedstock. To maintain U.S.s leadership… 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.
