Abstract:During Phase I of this ONR-funded effort, we made substantial progress toward the overarching goal of improving intuitive decision making in a variety of settings. In that effort we recognized an opportunity to inform the intuitive system by expanding the set of decision attributes that are… more
Abstract:Landing a piloted helicopter such as the SH-60R on the moving deck of a small ship currently requires close cooperation between the pilot, copilot, Landing Safety Officer (LSO), and the onboard Sensor Operator (for RAST/free deck recoveries). This critical task is resource-intensive and can be… more
Abstract:Energetic materials find applications in diverse areas that affect our everyday lives. Their handling is inherently risky, and accidents have been reported that has led to the loss of lives or severe injuries to the people involved. Consequences of accidents for humans and national security make… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The proposed project will enable the realization of a low size, weight, & power directional antenna for CDL. A preliminary design of such a system was shown in the Phase I SBIR. Here, a small CTS (continuous transverse stub) antenna was shown to meet the CDL requirements provided in… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Toyon Research Corporation and Argo Science Corporation propose research and development of advanced algorithms and efficient software for improved exploitation of space-based next-generation infrared sensor data. The developed algorithms will provide jitter compensation and suppression… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: For certain weapons systems, lethality is directly correlated to the orientation of the weapon with respect to the target at impact, also known as the angle of incidence (AOI). Accurately measuring AOI is of the utmost importance in developing and advancing state-of-the-art precision… more
Abstract:Both military and law enforcement are showing increasing interest in a wider array of Non-Lethal Weapons such as Active Denial Technology (ADT). Such systems require electrical power for their high power millimeter-wave generating RF sources. Currently not available, a compact efficient prime power… more
Abstract:Persistent, autonomous monitoring from infrared surveillance and staring systems is necessary for early missile warning/defense, battlespace awareness, and technical intelligence. Specifically, the ability to accurately detect, track and geo-locate events of interest in known hostile regions enables… more
Abstract:Toyon Research Corporation proposes to develop an open architecture programming and teaching interface for autonomous robotic system control in whole-body manipulation, in collaboration with the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB). The proposed architecture will consist of software… more
Abstract:Human-computer interaction and the display of infrared imagery and electro-optic-sensor data require an improved interface to enhance the situational awareness of the modern warfighter. Current displays, while providing important data, saddle the warfighter with various handicaps. They reduce… more
Abstract:The Common Laser Range Finder Integrated Capability (CLRF-IC) system requires a non-magnetic azimuth sensing module. While Trex"s Celestial CompassTM already provides highly accurate, nonmagnetic, nearly instantaneous azimuth solutions within the SWaP required for CLRF-IC and other handheld… more
Abstract:Under Phase 1, Trex Enterprises Corporation of San Diego will develop electro-optic (EO) infrared (IR) sensors using aperture synthesis for partially coherent and passive illumination, providing increased resolution with reduced sensor volume and speckle noise. The aperture synthesis technique… more
Abstract:Trex Enterprises will develop a disruptive, fundamentally-new, military navigation architecture to provide game-changing advantages for U.S. forces. The proposed system has the ability to operate in a completely RF-jammed environment and operate without access to space assets. It will operate with… more
Abstract:This program creates diagnostic modules that perform high resolution time-domain reflectometry (TDR), optical time-domain reflectometry (OTDR), and optical or electrical tone insertion (TI).

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.
