    Spherical Autonomous Underwater Vehicle
    (The Government of the United States of America, as represented by the Secretary of the Navy, Washington, DC (US), 2024-07-09) Eldred, Ross Anthony; Lussier, Jonathan; Office of Research and Innovation
    The invention relates to an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV ). The AUV includes a frame and tunnel thrusters for propelling and orientating the AUV, where the tunnel thrusters have inlets and outlets, each of outlets being directed in a different orientation, and are mounted to the frame. The AUV further includes fasteners for connecting the frame to a hull, where the fasteners have an orientation that is substantially parallel to the tunnel thrusters. The hull has a substantially spherical shape and further includes (1) a bottom plate with inlet openings, (2) a top plate with outlet openings, where the top plate and the bottom plate are affixed to the fasteners and hold plate rings of the hull in place, and (3) each of the plate rings that further includes a corresponding retention ring and corresponding central plates.

    Phase Change Materials Composite Formulations
    (The Government of the United States of America, as represented by the Secretary of the Navy, Washington, DC (US), 2024-07-09) Luhrs, Claudia Catalina; Office of Research and Innovation
    The invention relates to a polymeric composite. The polymeric composite includes a polymeric matrix that further includes a thermoset polymer and a phase change material that has been mixed with the polymeric matrix using a thickening agent. In some cases, the polymeric composite is at least 10% by weight of the phase change material.

    Wanted: a strategy to integrate deterrence
    (Taylor & Francis Group, 2024-07-02) Wirtz, James J.; Larsen, Jeffrey A.; Naval Postgraduate School (U.S.); National Security Affairs (NSA)
    Integrated deterrence is a new term in the defence lexicon, introduced by members of the Biden administration to describe a key concept in current U.S. National Security Strategy. This article unpacks this concept by explaining why deterrence is no longer integrated. It identifies the technological, social, and environmental changes that produced this emergent demand for a fundamental assessment of the workings of deterrence today. The concept of deterrence itself, however, does not require reassessment. Rather, the focus here is on applying existing theory to a new strategic setting. The narrative surveys criteria suggested by various authors to guide the process of integration while explaining why some of these ideas are unsuitable as a starting point for integrating deterrence. The article then identifies several themes that should be incorporated into a future deterrence strategy and concludes with some observations about where the task of integrating deterrence might commence.

    Discovering and Clustering Ipv6 Addresses By Hardware Identifiers
    (The Government of the United States of America, as represented by the Secretary of the Navy, Washington, DC (US), 2024-06-25) Rye, Eric Charles; Beverly, IV, Robert Edward; Office of Research and Innovation
    The invention relates to discovering and clustering Internet protocol addresses. For example, the invention can include discovering an IPv6 address of an Internet-facing device on a network, where the IPv6 address is associated with a wide area network (WAN) media access control (M AC) address and a WiFi basic service set identifier (BSSID), identifying an associated BSSID in WiFi geolocation databases based on the WAN and WiFi BSSID, and geolocating the Internet facing device by retrieving a location record in the WIFI geolocation databases for the associated BSSID.

    Mems Nanotube Based Thermal Neutron Detector
    (The Government of the United States of America, as represented by the Secretary of the Navy, Washington, DC (US), 2024-05-28) Hameed, Zishan; Gats, John; Meyyappan, Meyya; Han, Jin-Woo; Office of Research and Innovation
    A MEMS nanotube based radiation sensor that is low cost, low power, compact, reliable and is applicable across many fields and a method for fabricating such a sensor are described. Each sensor may be connected to an array of similar but distinct sensors that leverage different material sand nanotube technology to detect radiation.
