1. Learning in a Hierarchical Control System: 4D/RCS in the DARPA LAGR Program
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/26/2006
Authors: James S. Albus, Roger V Bostelman, Tommy Chang, Tsai Hong Hong, William P Shackleford, Michael O Shneier
Abstract: The Defense Applied Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Learning Applied to Ground Vehicles (LAGR) program aims to develop algorithms for autonomous vehicle navigation that learn how to operate in com-plex terrain. Over many years, the National Institut ...

2. Performance Evaluation of Temporal Range Registration for Autonomous Vehicle Navigation
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/28/2006
Authors: Rajmohan Madhavan, Elena R Messina
Abstract: In this article, we evaluate the performance of an iterative registration algorithm for position estimation of Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) operating in unstructured environments. Field data obtained from trials on UGVs traversing undulating outd ...

3. 3D Nanoscale Characterization of Thin-Film Organic Photovoltaic Device Structures via Spectroscopic Contrast in the TEM
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/21/2010
Authors: Andrew A Herzing, Lee J Richter, Ian M. Anderson
Abstract: The three-dimensional characterization of third generation photovoltaic device structures at the nanometer scale is essential to the development of efficient, reliable, and inexpensive solar cell technologies. Electron tomography is a powerful metho ...

4. 3D Range Imaging for Urban Search and Rescue Robotics Research
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/26/2006
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Rajmohan Madhavan, Brian A Weiss
Abstract: Urban search and rescue (US&R) operations can be extremely dangerous for human rescuers during disaster response. Human task forces carrying necessary tools and equipment and having the required skills and techniques, are deployed for the rescue of v ...

5. 3D X-ray Metrology for Block Copolymer Lithography Line-Space Patterns
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/15/2013
Authors: Daniel Franklin Sunday, Matthew R. Hammond, Chengqing C. Wang, Wen-Li Wu, Regis J Kline, Gila E. Stein
Abstract: We report on the development of a new measurement method, resonant critical-dimension small-angle x-ray scattering (CD-SAXS), for the characterization of the buried structure of block copolymers (BCP) used in directed self assembly (DSA). We use reso ...

6. A 100 Ampere, 100 kHz Transconductance Amplifier
Topic: Energy
Published: 4/1/1995
Author: Owen Brede Laug

7. A Brief History of PRIDE
Topic: Energy
Published: 12/28/2007
Authors: Zeid Kootbally, Craig I Schlenoff, Rajmohan Madhavan
Abstract: PRIDE (PRediction In Dynamic Environments) is a framework that provides an autonomous vehicle's planning system with information that it needs to perform path planning in the presence of moving objects. The underlying concept is based upon a mult ...

8. A Common Operator Control Unit Color Scheme for Mobile Robots
Topic: Energy
Published: 12/28/2007
Authors: Michael O Shneier, Roger V Bostelman, James S. Albus, William P Shackleford, Tommy Chang, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: The Intelligent Systems Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has partici-pated in the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) Learning Applied to Ground Robots (LAGR) project for the past 2 ? years. In Phase ...

9. A Comparison of Predicted to Measured Photovoltaic Module Performance
Report Number: 7335
Topic: Energy
Published: 3/1/2009
Authors: Arthur Hunter Fanney, Brian P Dougherty, Mark W Davis
Abstract: Computer simulation models to accurately predict the electrical performance of photovoltaic modules are essential. Without such models, potential purchasers of photovoltaic systems have insufficient information to judge the relative merits and cost e ...

10. A Comparison of the Hypersonic Vehicle Fuel JP-7 to the Rocket Propellants RP-1 and RP-2 Using the Advanced Distillation Curve Method
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/15/2009
Authors: Tara M Lovestead, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: JP-7 is a hydrocarbon-based kerosene fraction with a low volatility and high thermal stability. JP-7 was developed in the 1950s to meet the more stringent requirements necessary for the development of high-altitude reconnaissance planes that fly at ...
