Investigation of Requirements and Capabilities of Next-Generation Mine Warfare Unmanned Underwater Vehicles
The current fleet of United States Navy Mine Countermeasures ships, the Avenger class, is reaching the end of its planned service life.
The fundamental goal of this research is to build from a broad set of experimental and theoretical data to a narrower set of scaling relations, heuristics, and trends that provide a roadmap for understanding laser ablation across relevant regimes.
The research was closely tied to work that was led by Nathan Newbury at NIST, and the principal goal was to support the development of advanced laser sources.

The Cryogenic Thermal Subsystem’s most critical function is to provide cooling to maintain the detectors in two of the Roman Coronagraph Instrument’s cameras at sufficiently low temperatures of approximately minus 161o F, which will allow them to function with the required sensitivity.
With the industry’s traditional focus on welding and brazing, there has been minimal formal education on diffusion bonding.
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has four infrared cameras to view the stars.
Software and automation have enabled a step forward in cockpit design, one that is stripped down to the essentials without sacrificing functionality.
