NRL has a broad portfolio of technologies and over 1300 active patents or patent applications that are available for license. Below is a list of links to more information for a number of NRL technologies that have potential commercial applications.


Machine Vision System

NRL has developed a method for the rapid recognition and location of surface shapes in range images. This method can be used for face recognition, munitions identification, and to train robots to “see.” Unlike other image-based methods, the NRL approach is completely insensitive to variation in lighting or viewpoint and is extremely time-efficient.

Cognitive Simulation Tool

NRL has patented an artificial intelligence and cognitive modeling technology related to computerized network interactions using knowledge base systems. The NRL patented technology applies to a learning algorithm grounded in social science to model interactions of agents/actors from different groups or cultures.
