Materials by Design
A new approach to materials discovery aims to expedite the process of deploying new materials for specific mission needs.
Coordinating Teams of Autonomous Systems
We developed new distributed coordination algorithms for deploying multiple autonomous systems from a single set of operator commands.
Human-AI Performance Incubator
A new collaboration space is empowering researchers to drive innovations in human-AI teaming.
Collaborative-UAS for Hostile Attribution, Surveillance, Emplacement, and Reconnaissance
We are building a toolbox of autonomous functions for unmanned aerial systems to improve UAS missions and alleviate burden on human operators in the field.
Autonomous High-Resolution Ocean Floor Mapping
The Laboratory is working to develop a novel seabed-mapping capability that can achieve high-resolution imaging and a fast coverage rate.
Engineered diamonds show promising capability for use in quantum sensing of magnetic fields.
Smart Photovoltaic Microgrids for Cooking in Disadvantaged Communities
By connecting a PV microgrid powered by solar panels to homes, engineers could provide people who live in regions of power-insecurity with the energy to cook their meals. Unused power could be applied to phone-charging stations.
Low-Cost High-Vacuum Pump
A new concept for a low-cost vacuum pump may enable development of a portable mass spectrometer that achieves high-performance chemical detection.
Self-Healing Materials for Vibration Damping
New materials that are chemically inspired by nature could be tailored at the molecular level to dissipate vibrations in microsystems. Materials that can survive repeated external stresses could enable a next generation of enhanced microsystems.
