Abstract:The majority of the unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs) run on batteries. However, extended missions (or high-power, short-duration missions) require a much higher energy density than can be stored in batteries. Fuel cells, such as the Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFCs) Systems, can be very efficient and… more
Abstract:Ship superstructures are increasingly being constructed from marine-grade aluminum alloys (5XXX-series) because they are lightweight and strong. However, sensitized 5XXX series alloys are vulnerable to inter-granular corrosion which manifests itself as stress corrosion cracking (SCC) and exfoliation… more
Abstract:The cost and availability of logistic fuels is becoming an important factor to the success of the military operations. There is also extra vulnerability rendered by the military"s dependence on this sole energy source for all operations. Hence, the army is interested in developing capability… more
Abstract:Due to its favorable combustion properties, aluminum is the material of choice in metalized nanoparticle formulations for energetic materials; however, the full potential of aluminum nanoparticles has not been realized due to the presence of a nascent oxide layer (Al2O3) that surrounds the… more

Abstract:ABSTRACT: Regulated heavy metals are typically removed from industrial wastewater through a metal hydroxide precipitation and sedimentation process. Complicating the treatment of these waste streams is the presence of commingled chemicals such as detergents, surfactants and other chelating… more
Abstract:The boat transfer, launch, and recovery system proposed will utilize a system of composite moving ways, cradle, and configurable bouyant bladders, controlled by the Advanced Communication and Control System (ACCS) to safely launch, recover, and transfer a variety of boats ranging in size as a… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Tactical use of remotely piloted aircraft (RPAs) has expanded rapidly, as the increasing reliability and performance of both the aircraft and their sensor payloads have significantly improved warfighter situational awareness (SA). A key capability required by warfighters, particularly in… more
Abstract:Efforts to counter radar"s effectiveness include passive and active detection and deception techniques. Active radar deception techniques require accurate detection and characterization of the transmitted radar signals (time and spatial domains). Once identified as hostile, active deception… more
Abstract:Fully retesting a modified system is frequently not economically feasible. Thorough retesting takes too much time and costs too much. Trident has established a process and methodology, called Safe Test Boundaries (STB) that improves retesting modified baseline systems. The methodology defines a… more
Abstract:MaxPower has designed and built a prototype primary battery for use in the Rifleman Radio. At the end of the Phase II program, MaxPower delivered six prototype batteries to the U.S. Army for testing. Testing demonstrated that this battery system is able to provide over 15 hours operation at 6.6W… more
Abstract:The QED team proposes a study of an independent seagoing barge that can be attached to and made a part of an INLS or commercial RRDF floating platform. The barge contains an active motion compensation platform supported by either a self-contained air cushion, hydraulic/mechanical apparatus or a… more
Abstract:SSC proposes a low power tri-axial acoustic sensor that leverages our existing acoustic chambered design to provide a directional sensor that has high
sensitivity, rugged construction with low power consumption. Our approach extends prototypes developed under DoD sponsorship, including DARPA,
Abstract:Arete Associates, in collaboration with the NanoRobotics Laboratory of Carnegie Mellon University, plans to design and demonstrate a desktop-sized assembly system utilizing a coordinated team of micro-robots. Called MECA-BOTS (Miniature Electromagnetically Controlled Assembler Robot Swarm), this… more
Abstract:Arete Associates and Luminex Corporation propose to leverage Luminex"s award-winning bead-based multiplexing technology with Arete"s decision-theoretic processing algorithms to develop a portable, Point-of-Care (POC) system that enables rapid identification of known and de novo pathogens.… more
Abstract:Arete Associates, Ringtail Design, and the University of Texas at Austin propose a collaboration to develop transformative mobile applications ("apps") for improved epidemiological situational awareness. We propose to combine biosurveillance-data-enhanced disease spreads models,… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Arete Associates proposes development of a novel ladar receiver in the combined Phase I and Phase II program. Arete will design and build a receive module for LADAR that captures target returns as well as a"copy"of the outgoing pulse. Collection of the outgoing pulse provides… more
Abstract:Over the past decade, enormous advancements in the field of compressive sensing have provided a new framework for reconstructing signals from incomplete measurements, thus offering feasible mathematical tools for efficient data collection. Applying compressive sensing to sea-based radar could result… more
Abstract:The U.S. Navy has a pressing need to develop a new antisubmarine warfare (ASW) approach for the P-8A Poseidon aircraft, which is to replace the aging P-3C Orion fleet. Unlike the P-3C, the P-8A will not carry magnetic anomaly detection (MAD) equipment aboard the aircraft. To execute its ASW mission… more
Abstract:The results of the Phase I activities confirm the feasibility of using the swept frequency FD-OCT approach for measuring the separation and relative amplitude of optical elements withing a seeker at long range. In the Phase I analysis it was shown that various methods, including the originally… more
Abstract:Investigations will be conducted to identify physical mechanisms that could be involved with the generation of specific large-scale ocean features of interest to the Navy. The objective is to unravel the generation of these features and to derive an understanding of the source.
Abstract:Arete Associates and our partner Lefthand Design Corporation (LHDC) will develop and test an advanced fast two-axis beam scanner component in support of the Office of Naval Research (ONR Codes 31/35), and the Program Executive Office, Air ASW, Assault & Special Mission Programs, H-53 Heavy Lift… 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.
