Abstract:

The Defense Research Sciences Program element provides the technical foundation for long-term improvements in military equipment and systems through the discovery of new phenomena and the exploration of the potential of such phenomena for military application. Projects CCS-02, Advanced Digital Structures and Network Concepts, ES-01, Electronic Sciences, and MS-01, Materials Sciences in the Program Element are discussed in the individual project descriptions. The Modernization Technology Project is developing inexpensive, tethered platforms for rapid elevation of sensors and communications antennas from tactical vehicles. The Geophysical Research Project aims to improve yield determination of Soviet underground nuclear explosions and discrimination of earthquakes, quarry blasts, and decoupled underground nuclear explosions. The Systems Sciences Project involves research in the following areas Advanced biosensor designfabrication very large scale integrated VLSI neural net chip fabrication bio-organic materials for advanced sensor applications and naval countermeasures exploitation advanced applied mathematical techniques for clustering algorithms to distinguish different emitters - radar, anti-submarine warfare ASW, dense electronic warfare EW automatic personal computer system for high speed exact image compression and regeneration and adaptive vehicle technology. Under the Armor Materials Research Project, research is performed to support all aspects of the Armor Program in program element number 0602702E, Tactical Technology. Keywords Ballistic ceramics Tungsten alloys Lightweight high strength cermets.
