  1. Effective Routing Algorithms for IP based Satellite Networks


    ABSTRACT: The main focus of this proposal is to develop innovative IP routing algorithms onboard over satellites that can link user preferences and network conditions and improve end-to-end network performance, including heterogeneity of satellite nodes, interferences on satellite links, and others. Because of the unique characteristics of satellite communication links with heterogeneous satellit ...

  2. A Trusted Computing Framework for Embedded Systems

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT15

    ABSTRACT: The damage and loss caused by attacks and security breaches have drawn attentions to develop secure and reliable systems for embedded systems. Compared to their desktop counterparts, embedded devices are facing more security challenges, such as the more possible physical access to a target device and more constrained computing environment (e.g., limited RAM and CPU power). Together, the ...

    SBC: SR2 GROUP, LLC            Topic: AF11BT27

    ABSTRACT: We investigate in the context of massive-scale CFD simulation datasets, modern information extraction and feature discovery methods recently developed in the context of analyzing complex, high-dimensional sensor data. We include four task threads: (1) Dimensionality-reduction to examine correlation of emergent feature spaces with physical phenomena. (2) Identification and tracking of c ...

  4. Electrical Energy Storage System by SMES Method for Ultra-High Power and Energy Density

    SBC: RCT Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT31

    ABSTRACT: RCT Systems, with Florida State University, MIT, and partners, will develop a fast transient Superconducting Magnet Energy Storage (SEMS) system model for aircraft and spacecraft applications requiring ultra high capacity and rapid charge/discharge rates in an energy and power dense package. A fully parametric, multi-physic model allows rapid sizing for a range of energy storage levels ...

  5. Multi-Scale, Multi-Resolution Network Information Flow Monitoring and Understanding

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT15

    ABSTRACT: We propose a unifying framework for multi-scale multi-resolution inference, analysis, and design of complex socio-technological networks. Our key innovation is to combine graph-analytical methods with functional analysis through information-geometric optimization across time, space, and frequency. Isolated approaches separating social network analysis and communication network design ca ...

  6. Innovative Earth Gravity Reformulation and Numerical Integration for Responsive SSA

    SBC: OMITRON, INC.            Topic: AF09BT02

    ABSTRACT: Computation of the geopotential acceleration and its partial derivatives per the standard formulation consumes considerable numerical integration time in special perturbations (SP) applications. Recent research by Dr. Beylkin of the University of Colorado (CU) has demonstrated efficient techniques for evaluation of such formulations via upfront computations on a spherical grid. One po ...

  7. Policy Guided Isolation and Strategically Shielded Exposure: A Novel Approach to Secure Applications

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT18

    ABSTRACT: It is very challenging to secure applications in today's networked computer systems where applications inherently share various resources and information. In this proposal, we propose a novel approach called policy guided isolation and strategically shielded exposure, to protect applications in network environments. Our approach integrates virtualization technology with the Policy ...

  8. A Novel Approach to Listener Performance Modeling for Aircraft Detection in Urban Environments

    SBC: Signal Processing, Inc.            Topic: AF112024

    ABSTRACT: In this proposal, we first extend the notion of speech reception threshold (SRT) to aircraft sound reception threshold (ASRT). In speech recognition, SRT refers to the mixture signal to noise ratio (SNR) required to achieve a certain intelligibility score, typically 50%. SRT is used to quantify speech intelligibility under various SNR conditions. Here we define ASRT as the SNR required ...

  9. SecureVisor: Efficiently Protect Weapon Systems against Cyber Threats

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF112029

    ABSTRACT: Current cyber threats analysis and detection techniques based on intrusion prevention/detection, anti-virus and spam filters often offer unsatisfactory security properties. They cannot detect new attacks, have high false negative rate and often identify attacks after they have happened. We propose a combined hardware-software solution to detect and prevent cyber threats to Air Force Wea ...

  10. A Network Sensor-Based Defense Framework for Active Network Security Situation Awareness and Impact Mitigation


    ABSTRACT: Networking technologies have given rise to worldwide social, business, and military networks, and commercial networks in US has been growing explosively. Cyber-attacks are increasing in frequency, impact, and complexity, which demonstrate extensive network vulnerabilities with the potential for serious damage. To defend against cyber-attacks, we propose a Network Sensor-Based Defense Fr ...
