Abstract:The availability of an air vehicle to perform missions or generate sorties is negatively impacted by time spent on the ground due to scheduled servicing and maintenance. Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) helps maximize the availability of air assets by servicing the air vehicle based on actual… more
Abstract:Aurora will develop a novel composite sandwich structure that is capable of providing a coupled bending-torsional stiffness with nonlinear elastic effects, capable of achieving a tailored aeroelastic response over a wide range of flight conditions. Such a structure will make use of an additive… more
Abstract:Aurora proposes to develop a vision-based subsystem for incorporation onto Mars vehicles in the air (VTOL) and on the ground. NOAMAD will be an embedded hardware device with associated firmware for payloadlimited UAVs, performing autonomous navigation, obstacle avoidance, guidance using bio-inspired… more
Abstract:To maximize the strike effectiveness of multiple disparate manned and unmanned platforms"while minimizing the potential damage to the strike force from the defenders in a high threat environment, we propose to develop REal-time Mission And Path Planner (REMAPP) that will provide secure routes… more
Abstract:Aurora Flight Sciences and the Lockheed Martin Sippican propose to develop a new propulsion system to increase the top speed of an EMATT (Expendable Mobile ASW Training Target) vehicle to 14 knots. Aurora will perform systems-level analysis to determine propulsion system requirements and… more
Abstract:Unmanned and partially autonomous aerial systems (UAS) and intelligent decision support systems have become integral components of emerging large-scale cyber-physical systems that will be involved in future military operations. Aircraft carrier decks will be central to many such operations involving… 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.
