Air, Missile, and Maritime Defense Technology
Developing technology for defending the nation from missile threats
We develop and assess integrated systems for defense against missiles and other threats. Our activities include investigating system architectures, developing advanced sensor and decision support systems, making field measurements, and assessing deployed system capabilities.
Air, Missile, and Maritime Defense Technology Groups
Radio-Based Navigation for Environments Without GPS
With the goal of enabling navigation in environments where GPS is unavailable or unreliable, researchers are developing algorithms to fuse information across a network of small, low-power radio-frequency devices.
Undersea Vision-Based Navigation and Pose Determination for Human-Robot Teaming
Undersea vision-based navigation and pose determination will enable divers and robots to collaboratively solve complex tasks in an inherently unstructured environment.
ALCOR Radome Replacement
An aging weatherproof enclosure protecting one of the space surveillance radars on Kwajalein Atoll is replaced.
Machine Learning in Resource-Constrained Environments
Robust, trustworthy, and safe machine learning algorithms that operate in resource-constrained environments will improve missile defense and other target recognition and mission planning systems.
