Purchase order processing software

Navy scientists and engineers have developed the Material Ordering and Reporting Expediter (MORE) – a procurement tool that uses a Windows-compatible database with either an internet interface or the database server’s own interface. The tool partially automates preparing and obtaining approvals on the numerous types of purchasing documents used by an organization or subunit.

cFaces facial recognition software

Navy researchers developed an improved facial recognition software specifically for watchlist surveillance that replicates human facial recognition processes.

The prototype system, known as cFaces, is capable of autonomously recognizing a person of interest and does not need to search any image database, nor does it need to match or rank images as a precursor to recognition.

Self-righting software for tracked and wheeled robots

Army researchers invented a software solution for robots that adds control of articulating joints to the robot offering upwards of eight degrees of freedom to figure out how to right itself.

The software evaluates the initial state and works out a series of movements resulting in it getting back on its treads.

A system that designs and optimizes component software

This Navy system allows for the design and development of Component Object Modules (COM) for Component Oriented Programming (COP).

The system model creates, tests, and stores data in a file that can be accessed by any user. As the components are intended to work in any environment, the system is portable, reducing production cost.

Anti-malware computer and software architecture

Air Force researchers have developed a more effective deterrent to scripting code-embedded malware infection using a filtering and re-writing method hosted on a virtual machine placed between the user and the web resource.

All requested web data is executed by the rendering computer processor that acts as an intermediary between the user’s computer processor and the internet. This intermediary processor passes on only the code that can be safely rendered.
