  1. Self-Shielding Systems and Attack-Surface Mutation

    SBC: 3 Sigma Research, Inc.            Topic: AF093049

    3 Sigma Research investigates an advanced concept, called the Mutating Attack-Surface Investigation (MASI), to increase network protection by continuously modifying and dynamically mutating the network profile. This approach addresses the attacker’s tactic of network mapping and the assumption of a static network target. The architecture implementation uses virtual machine hypervisor technology ...

  2. Automate Ontological Representation of security classification guides

    SBC: 3 Sigma Research, Inc.            Topic: AF083037

    3 Sigma Research proposes to develop and implement an innovative prototype and demonstrate a suite of tools to assist with the automated creation of security classification guides and application of the guide in classifying information. Building on the research from the Phase I Ontology-based Security Classification Guide Investigation (OSCG-I), the prototype will show that a robust and accurate ...

  3. Coupled Cluster Methods for Multi-Reference Applications

    SBC: ACES QC, LC            Topic: AF09BT40

    The objective of Phase I is to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the various multi-reference coupled-cluster (MRCC) methods that have been proposed for the description of molecular states depending upon near degeneracies and non-dynamic electron correlation. Such effects are encountered in bond breaking, at transition states, for complex open shell systems like transition metal atoms, and f ...

  4. Thermoelectric material-coated carbon nanotubes as high conductivity thermal interface materials

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT22

    The ever-decreasing size of the electronic microchips and the ever-increasing density of electronic components required to support future Air Force platforms are creating the problem of substantial localized heat generation that can impair component operation. State of the art thermal interface materials (TIMs), that are used to dissipate heat from the source to the spreader in a microchip, are se ...

  5. A Novel Nanomaterial-enabled Hybrid Power System

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD09EP2

    Developments in micro/nano technologies are leading the way to a new fleet of micro air vehicle (MAV) airframes. However, the unavoidable and ultimately the mission-limiting issue for all of these new systems will be on-board power. The lightest-weight current lithium-polymer batteries don’t provide sufficient energy densities and impose a variety of operational limitations that are unacceptab ...

  6. Nanomaterial Technologies for Long-Life Li-ion Batteries

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF093065

    Lithium-ion batteries have become the industry standard for use as rechargeable secondary batteries in space vehicles. Although substantial advancements have made in this class of batteries of late, substantial limitations still exist in: energy and power densities, operational temperature limits, safety, and most importantly lifecycle and lifetime performance. To address this need, ADA Technolo ...

  7. Multi-Functional High Energy, High Power Lithium-Polymer Batteries for MAVs

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF093098

    Micro air vehicles (MAV) are envisioned to play a substantial role in carrying out critical missions for the Nation’s future military force. However due to their small size, deficiencies in critical technologies may limit the operational performance of future MAVs. Arguably, on-board power may be the most mission-limiting issue facing future MAVs. To address this need, ADA Technologies, Inc. ...

  8. Improved Performance of Morphing Shape Memory Polymer Skins

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF093127

    Morphing air vehicles are characterized by an ability to dramatically alter their airfoil characteristics to maintain optimal aerodynamic efficiency over a broad flight regime thereby broadening their mission profile over an equivalent fixed-wing vehicle. Essential to enabling these vehicles is a wing skin that is highly compliant in-plane for wing morphing while being highly stiff out-of-plane to ...

  9. Compact Type 1 Space Encryption Hardware

    SBC: Aeronix, Inc.            Topic: AF093086

    Historically, military strategic satellite systems have been large in physical size and designed for lifetimes of up 10 years or more. To prevent unauthorized access to these systems their communication links are typically protected by Communications security (COMSEC) equipment. These box level security components are referred to as encryption control units (ECUs) or End Crypto Units (ECUs). Even ...

  10. Rapid Radiation Hardened Prototyping of Obsolescent Military Satellite Microelectronics

    SBC: AET, Inc.            Topic: AF093081

    In this program AET, Inc. will perform research and development with the objective of developing the capability to rapidly fabricate substitutes of radiation hardened microcircuits for use in future military satellites that may become obsolete during the acquisition cycle. The object is to develop a methodology for rapid prototyping of these obsolescent radiation hardened military microelectronic ...
