Abstract:With the advanced airplane avionics and digital cockpits, the type and amount of data that can be recorded during an aircraft flight has increased dramatically. The ability to download data securely, wirelessly, with automatic or remote download control offers advantages such as the drastic… more
Abstract:Current ASW testing is often limited by the presence of marine mammals on ASW test ranges. The solicitation suggests the development of a radar system and associated algorithms to detect breaching whales in various sea states. The detection would then be handed off to an EO system for verification… more
Abstract:Several sensor systems are currently under development for use in 'maritime remote sensing'. Missions such as surf zone and shallow water mine countermeasures, optical ASW, maritime search and rescue, and marine mammal detection and tracking are included in our definition of remote sensing. The… more
Abstract:Current ASW sensors rely either on active transmissions or close passive detection from low altitude or in water. Active transmissions can be detected and countermeasured, and platforms operating from low altitude can be directly heard or seen also allowing fairly easy countermeasures or evasion. … more

Abstract:High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) tungsten carbide, WC-Co, WC-Co-Cr coatings have been in development for two decades for chrome replacement in aerospace applications and implemented on many components. These coatings have been limited for High Strength Steel (HSS) Landing Gear component… more
Abstract:Landing gear designs utilize forgings for structural applications, to maximize properties and minimize weight. Although this approach allows for minimal component weight and size, a forging typically has the longest logistic lead time, and is usually the most expensive manufacturing method. Many… more
Abstract:Landing gear components utilize steels with tensile strengths above 280 KSI. Components manufactured from these alloys require sacrificial protective coatings to perform successfully in service. Cadmium has been the baseline coating for such components for decades. The problems with cadmium, a… 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.
