  1. Adaptive Compressed Sensing for Mission Prioritized Data Collection and Analysis

    SBC: Leskiw Associates            Topic: AF10BT10

    ABSTRACT: The test and evaluation (T & E) of complex systems is challenging in many respects. Vast amounts of data are typically generated, which need to be transmitted, stored, and analyzed. Traditionally, such testing has been"stove-piped,"with the data in one domain collected and analyzed independently of the others. Nowadays, however, T & E activities are being integrated. And dynamical a ...

  2. Toward a Virtual Flight Test Capability

    SBC: CLEAR SCIENCE CORP            Topic: AF10BT16

    ABSTRACT: Clear Science Corp. and Princeton University propose to develop a computational framework for accurately and efficiently modeling the full set of physics associated with aircraft operations. The critical attributes of the proposed framework are accuracy, computational efficiency, and inclusiveness. More accurate computational models will support higher fidelity analysis during the air ...

  4. Cognitive Radio Spectrum Management and Waveform Adaptation for Advanced Wideband Space Communication Systems

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: AF11BT03

    ABSTRACT: Within the last decade, game theoretic approaches have emerged as viable tools to analyze distributed wireless resource allocation problems and design distributed transmission strategies. Conventional game theoretic designs for wireless resource allocation problems do not consider jamming issues in the context of network utility maximization. These conventional game theoretic designs ar ...

  5. 3-D nondestructive imaging techniques for mesoscale damage analysis of composite materials

    SBC: Multiscale Design Systems, LLC            Topic: AF11BT04

    ABSTRACT: Our objective is to establish a non-destructive, three-dimensional, image-based analysis protocol for inhomogeneous materials that inherently considers the heterogeneous nature of condensed matter. The process begins with a 3-D assessment of the internal material structure performed using a high-resolution micro-CT scanner. Next, reconstruction of a statistically optimal RUC will be per ...

  6. Nanosensor Switches for Detection of Toxins, Pathogens, and Small Molecules

    SBC: APTAMATRIX, INC.            Topic: AF11BT09

    ABSTRACT: This phase I STTR project is a proof of concept study for developing near real-time, nanoparticle based sensors that detect the presence of specified toxins, pathogens, proteins, metabolites and small molecules. The specificity and sensitivity of this"nanosensor"is imparted by aptamer recognition that is engineered into a novel, patented technology we termed as an Alloswitch. These Allo ...

  7. Intracellular Detection of Small Molecules in Live Cells

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF11BT09

    ABSTRACT: The extreme toxicity of organophosphate (OP) chemical warfare agents (CWA) is due to their specific, rapid, and irreversible reaction with cholinesterase enzymes. A significant portion of this reactive nature of OP agents is directly due to the unique metabolically active environment found in and around cells. The goal of this proposal is to harness this unique intracellular environme ...

  8. Dynamically Evolving Malware Detection in Streams

    SBC: Cipher Tech Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT21

    ABSTRACT: Security breaches continue to plague the information technology community. The United States Air Force is highly susceptible to malicious software attacks and data leakage, and requires new approaches to protecting systems vulnerable to attacks. Today, virtualization is a technology that is ubiquitous in the datacenter; a recent E-Week survey found that more than 60% of all datacente ...

  9. High efficiency up- and down-converting infrared nanoparticles

    SBC: Nanoscience Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF11BT24

    ABSTRACT: Recent developments in the field of nanotechnology are providing principally innovative ways to fabricate fluorescent tags. Near infrared (IR) fluorescent tags, which are visible when using existing infrared imaging devices, such as night vision goggles available for soldiers, are of direct interest for fast and secure tagging of objects. For example, visual remote and rapid identificat ...

  10. Theoretical and experimental development of an atmospheric sensing suite for deep-turbulence research

    SBC: Radio-Hydro-Physics LLC            Topic: AF11BT41

    ABSTRACT: This Phase I SBIR will produce a concept, and algorithms, for a Sensor Suite which can be used as a research tool to characterize strong atmospheric turbulence. Previous and on-going theories, statistics, and empirical data will be evaluated to arrive at an optimal Sensor design concept. That Sensor may exploit the superior resolution and performance inherent in the Radio-Hydro-Physi ...
