  1. End-to-End QoS IP techniques for heterogeneous networks


    A lot of work has been done to develop security and QoS techniques for IP networks. However, existing work doesn't provide a complete solution for addressing security and end-to-end QoS provisioning for multimedia flows traversing heterogeneous networks. Thus, there is a need for a system that can provide end-to-end guarantees to flows in IP networks consisting of wireline and wireless links. The ...

  2. AfterShock


    Architecture Technology Corp. (ATC) proposes a reverse-engineering toolset named AfterShock. This toolset will use dynamic analysis and will build one work done for ATC's static reverse-engineering tool, Earthquake. AfterShock will use Valgrind, an open-source dynamic code modifying tool, to gather data from execution traces of the target program. AfterShock will then analyze and convert thos ...

  3. Polymorphic Virtual Machines


    We describe an approach to protect programs from differential analysis that is free of some of the drawbacks of traditional techniques. The approach does not rely on program analysis to determine applicability, so it can be uniformly applied to any program. Polymorphic variation in binary software arises from the details of the transformation itself, an not any inherent property of the protected ...

  4. Lowest-Cost Attack Path (L-CAP)


    Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) proposes an attack model based on attack paths. An attack path is any sequence of steps in an attack tree that will lead to a successful attack. The model then computes the safety of the program as the minimum cost attack path, "the path of least resistance". That is, the attack path where every other attack path would be more expensive. As part of ...

  5. Knowledge-Based Multi-Diciplinary Optimization of Rocket Turbopump Design

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: AF04199

    The design of turbomachinery components is a complex process requiring many steps and hundreds of minute decisions in an iterative process. The design proceeds from engine cycle performance and meanline design through 3D viscous flow calculations (CFD) and finite element structural analysis (FEA). Design studies may traverse this process many times, with routine tasks performed by engineers in a ...

  6. Computational Modeling of Cold-Hearth Melting Processes

    SBC: INNOVATIVE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: AF05130

    The overall objective of the proposed research is to develop a comprehensive, efficient, and well-validated computational model for the prediction of the process performance and quality of the titanium alloys produced using the Electron Beam Melting (EBM) and Plasma Arc Melting (PAM) processes. The computational model will analyze all the underlying physical phenomena in cold hearth melting namely ...

  7. Air Traffic Control (ATC) Tactical Briefcase

    SBC: JACKPINE TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: AF05049

    Jackpine Technologies, teamed with Lockheed Martin Transportation and Security Solutions, present a plan to build an Air Traffic Control Tactical Briefcase (ATCTB). The ATCTB will be used by personnel who require airspace situational awareness, but need to hand carry their ATC equipment. In addition to providing the necessary functionality, the system will need to meet size, ruggedness and relia ...

  8. Wiring System In-Situ Health Monitoring Diagnostics

    SBC: MINNESOTA WIRE & CABLE COMPANY            Topic: AF04153

    Maintaining wire integrity of aging aircraft is an immense effort and cost for the military and commercial airlines. The Navy is reported to spend 1.8 million maintenance hours annually trouble shooting and repairing aircraft wiring. The development of an in-situ wire fault location system is critical to the solution to reduce cost, minimize downtime and improve safety. A key component of this sys ...

  9. Self repairing Composites for Airplane Components

    SBC: NATURAL PROCESS DESIGN INC            Topic: AF03238

    In self-repairing composites, usually liquid chemicals are contained inside a fiber or bead vessel that is embedded inside the polymer composite matrix or laminate. Damage such as an impact or fatigue microcracking causes the breaking of the vessel, release of internal chemicals into the damage site where they wet the sides of the damage site, react together or with the matrix resin and close or f ...

  10. An Extensible QoS Framework for Secure Tactical Networks

    SBC: SALO IT SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: AF05087

    Salo IT Solutions, Inc. (SaloITS) will investigate, design, document, model, prototype and demonstrate an extensible architectural framework, protocol enhancements and other technologies that will provide scalable, fine-grained, quality-of-service (QoS) assurances in secure IP networks. The Extensible QoS Framework for Secure Tactical Networks ("the Secure QoS Framework") will be particularly ben ...
