Abstract:Effective protection for data-at-rest in mobile devices cannot be achieved by merely adding encryption and integrity features. Current smartphones contain hundreds of vulnerabilities that allow malware to overcome an App's containment (e.g. sandbox) to access and exfiltrate sensitive data and… more
Abstract:Communications systems are hindered by inherent system limitations and also by physical attributes. For WCDMA systems three prominent issues are capacity, high latitude performance (for systems based on geosynchronous satellites), and Line Of Sight (LOS) performance. The MUOS system, based on… more
Abstract:Geost and the University of Arizona propose to develop a non-lethal weapon system based on dual-pulse femtosecond-nanosecond generation of dense plasma sparks in air at range. In this approach, the femtosecond laser pulse creates a dilute plasma filament, location of which is controlled through the… more
Abstract:W Scientific plans to build a deployable ultra wideband digitizer system based on a unique combination of a photonic front-end processor with a high speed time-interleaving electronic digitizer.

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
