However, existing… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Traditional methods of gathering radiometrically accurate space situational awareness (SSA) photometry data rely on calibration steps that need 10-12 reference star images to be collected in conjunction with the primary collection. The Air Force needs calibration solutions that reduce… more
Abstract:The Navy has promising efforts underway to automate 3D model building and identification of ships from submarine periscope video. Currently, this video contains artifacts due to reticle lines, lens smudges, interlacing, and color sampling. These artifacts must be must be removed by hand, a… more
Abstract:The Navy wishes to study trade-offs in aircraft maintenance versus visible and near IR detectability in the use of glossy paint finishes. We propose a novel simulation survey technique based on forward ray tracing which will greatly increase the possible space of vehicle, sun and observer positions… more
Abstract:Metal casting is an important manufacturing process and most castings are made by small to mid-sized foundries. Sand molded castings account for 85% of all iron and steel castings produced and approximately 5 out of 30 major casting defects including gas blows and sand burn-on are related to poor… more

OpenRISC is fully customizable and IDEAS-TEK has developed custom configurations that fulfill the solicitation"s requirements. Radiation hardening will be accomplished by… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The commercial, human and military value of Earth"s orbital space is immense. To ensure operational security, obviate collisions, and preclude potential threats in the particularly valuable region of GEO space requires that we know what is there, and how the vast number of spacecraft… more
Abstract:It is extremely important to understand and control the temporal characteristics of electron beams at accelerator photoinjectors. Measuring and setting the electron bunch length is critical to the operation of the accelerator, and can ultimately determine if physics experiments at user-based… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Radio-frequency (RF) transmitting devices are found nearly everywhere today, ranging from lower-power cell phones to radar equipment to high-energy weapons systems. Accidental exposure of humans to the RF radiation emanating from these devices can cause harmful thermal effects including… 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.
