Abstract:Pattern of Life characterization involves studying how people interact with the world around them on a daily basis: places they visit; people they interact with; actions they perform. Effective tracking of such patterns of life has direct implications to defense intelligence, cyber intelligence and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Environmental protection coatings are required to provide oxidation and hot corrosion protection to hot section turbine components. Unfortunately, the current generation of such coatings can degrade the fatigue resistance of the coated alloy. It is increasingly recognized that, due to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Thermal barrier coatings (TBC) are currently employed to protect gas turbine engine components. Thermally exposed TBC systems have been observed to be affected by moisture. This spallation mechanism, Moisture Induced Delayed Spallation (MIDS), occurs at room temperature while the coatings… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Echo Ridge proposes to prototype and evaluate GNSS processing algorithms designed to provide high accuracy and spoofing robustness (information assurance (IA)) by exploiting diversity in radio navigation signals (frequency, location, bandwidth, format) using new signal processing… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Echo Ridge and partner Rockwell Collins propose to quantify and demonstrate the value of existing tactical and commercial wireless communications signals in providing time aiding to MGUE. The primary results of the Phase I effort will be a comprehensive trade space analysis, off-air… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Echo Ridge and team partner AirIn Technologies propose to develop an innovative, low-cost satellite testing system which provides functionality of the TSTR and RBC TSTR electronics and is compatible with the AFSCN. The system will feature state of the art COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf)… more
Abstract:Today's static IT systems allow adversaries time to plan and launch attacks. Endeavor proposes a Multi-layer, Ever changing, Self-defense Service
(MESS) that is resilient and manageable. MESS prevents attackers from exploiting a target system by removing the static network & system attributes
Abstract:Luna Innovations, teamed with University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth has developed a novel textile technology to provide improved protection for soldiers. Soldiers are exposed to significant risk of injury and death from gun shots and blasts from improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Whereas heavy… more
Abstract:Widespread damage in aging aircraft is becoming an increasing concern as both civil and military fleet operators are extending the service lifetime of their aircraft and increasing risk of crack-like damage of aircraft components. The scientific community found that fatigue damage initiation occurs… more
Abstract:Critical Technology (CT) lies within a variety of electronic circuits across US Navy weapon platforms and must be adequately protected from theft and unintentional transfer. Traditional protective hardware enclosures are bulky, require power, and require special thermal considerations because they… more
Abstract:Tanks and enclosures were named the top corrosion expense on Navy vessels, accounting for $204 M in annual direct costs. To control these costs, there is a need for an automated monitoring system to assess coating damage and cathodic protection (CP) system performance. During the Phase II program,… more
Abstract:The ability to rapidly detect and identify infectious organisms is critical for the accurate diagnosis of seasonal and sporadic outbreaks, emerging pathogens and agents of bioterrorism. Accurate detection requires high quality biological specimens, which
Abstract:Luna Innovations is developing stabilization technology for increased long-term storage of various biological moieties (e.g. enzymes, nucleic acids, and whole cells). This unique stabilization matrix allows for extended cell viability lifetime, minimizing cell maintenancerequirements while retaining… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Luna proposes to design, build, and test a novel leak detection system for the bleed air lines found on advanced tactical aircraft. The proposed leak detection system is based on Luna"s distributed sensing technology, and is capable of detecting and precisely localizing leaks and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The annual cost of corrosion for Air Force aircraft and missiles is estimated to be $5.4 billion with corrosion accounting for 32.2% of the maintenance budget. The inability to define corrosion resistance during the design process and to test for corrosion performance at the operational… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Improved performance and environmental compliance continues to drive coating development. The acceptance of emerging coatings for aircraft structures is accomplished through extensive property testing that includes accelerated corrosion and service environment exposure testing. Current… more
Abstract:Virginia class submarines feature 134 hydraulic actuators critical to operational readiness. Currently, hydraulic actuators are overhauled on a time-based schedule as part of 600 series work, regardless of usage or condition. Superfluous hydraulic actuator maintenance results in extended… more
Abstract:Condition-based monitoring has the potential to significantly reduce operating costs for the U.S. Navy through enhanced maintenance scheduling and reduction in unnecessary inspections / overhauls. Embedded sensors provide monitoring capabilities for data acquisition, analysis and transmission when… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Luna has demonstrated the feasibility of a high speed extreme environment stress and strain measurement system operating at temperatures>900°C (1652°F) and streaming static and dynamic data at 2.5MHz.

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.
