  1. Porosity Gradient in Hybrid Composite Structure for Thermal Protection

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: AF10BT27

    ABSTRACT: Many military and aerospace platforms, including a number of airborne and spaceborne vehicles, significantly benefit from new materials that save weight and improve performance. Thermal protection systems (TPS) and extremely high temperature structures are required for a range of hypersonic air and space vehicles. For example, over 20,000 thermal protection ceramic tiles are usually i ...

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

    SBC: SHARED SPECTRUM COMPANY            Topic: AF11BT03

    ABSTRACT: We analyze approaches to adaptively avoid hostile attack to satellite communications by applying a combined approach of game-theory research, dynamic spectrum access (DSA), policy-based resource management controls and wideband sensing. We analyze the impact of game theory to influence adaptive parameters (power, sensing threshold, frequency, network changes) and avoid attack. We study ...

  7. Next Generation Thermoelectric Devices

    SBC: Microxact, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT26

    ABSTRACT: The team of MicroXact, Inc., ODU and Virginia Tech proposes to develop a revolutionary high efficiency thermoelectric material fabricated on completely new fabrication principles. The material comprises the three-dimensional"wells"of PbTe/PbSe superlattices fabricated by a conformal coating via Atomic layer Deposition (ALD) of macroporous silicon substrates. Such a material will provide ...

  8. Enterprise Anti-exploitation for Mission Assurance

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: OSD11IA1

    Supply chain threats have invalidated the assumption that the adversary has no reasonable avenue of attack even if the software protections are structured properly and augmented with secure hardware. In today"s cyber-attack environment, one must assume that a subset of systems are or will be eventually compromised. Luna proposes a fault tolerance, federated cloud computing architecture supportin ...

  9. Sensor Data Fusion for Intelligent Systems Monitoring and Decision Making

    SBC: PROGENY SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: AF103255

    ABSTRACT: Systems that use sensors to capture the state of the equipment will generate a large quantity of data over time. The ability to monitor this sensor data and apply that information to predict maintenance issues would increase the value of this data. The system being designed will map the sensor data to the maintenance records for the system. Using the changes in the sensors leading up to ...
