Abstract:The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in its publication Technology News and Trends in 2009 featured the Navy's work that saved 6 years and $3 million delineating chlorinated solvent plumes in soil and groundwater. The Navy used EPA's TRIAD process, which incorporates systematic… more
Abstract:To realize next generation missile defense radar systems with a significant improvement in performance requires more cost effective system implementations. Software defined radar (SDR) technologies together with field programmable gate array (FPGA) implementations promise reusable and low cost DREX… more
Abstract:In order to maintain our nation's technological superiority on air, sea and land, we must respond quicker to emerging threats and reduce the cost of major sensing platforms. Every DoD platform developed nowadays contains at least one sensor, whether it be RF, EO/IR, or acoustic. In fact, in a lot of… more
Abstract:A multi-band airborne synthetic aperture radar and ground moving-target indicating (SAR/GMTI) radar system will be designed and developed that will utilize multiple frequency bands to improve the radar imaging and target detection performance in various clutter environments. Applied Radar's existing… more
Abstract:Multi-channel array manifolds are required for wideband AESA applications. In modern solid-state AESA arrays, MMIC-based T/R modules generally utilize digitally-controlled phased shifters to steer the beam on transmit and receive. The given phase value is only accurate at one frequency, and so for… more
Abstract:Key obstacles to extending OFDM to wireless links and networks at high-frequencies and dynamic channels are inherent low performance to Doppler and power amplifiers operation with high back-off. Other significant obstacles are multipath and impulsive noise. PEARL-OFDM combines a layered architecture… more
Abstract:We propose the development of a compact broadband underwater cylindrical transducers with integrated tuning networks and power amplifiers for Mobile Acoustic Counter Measures. There is a need for cost effective transducers that are broadband and have broad-beam coverage. BTech has designed and built… more
Abstract:The design and development of piezocrystal sonar transducers is a challenging multidisciplinary and technological effort that spans many fields and skill sets. We look to extend and improve our transducer assembly technologies to reduce cost and implementation time for sonar technology transition… more
Optimization of generator performance and maximization of output power are difficult to attain in the generation of hydro-power. This is due to the changing water conditions and corresponding changes in the form of available energy. ESL proposes to use self-tuning… more
Abstract:In order to improve the safety and efficiency of navy high speed small boat operations, FarSounder proposes a 3-dimensional, forward looking sonar solution capable of simultaneous bathymetry sensing and obstacle detection out to ranges of at least 1640 ft (500m). Additionally, the system will be… 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.
