  1. Anti-Exploitation Software Protection Systems

    SBC: Siege Technologies, LLC            Topic: OSD11IA1

    State-of-the-art software protection and anti-tamper systems move critical software and data"out-of-band"to the adversary, by using a hypervisor or on"secure"hardware. Unfortunately, the systems running this software are built using untrusted commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) parts. Supply chain threats to critical components, such as hardware or firmware Trojans, have invalidated the assumption tha ...

  2. Situation Awareness Optimal Linkage and Reporting Intelligence System (SOLARIS)

    SBC: SA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF112026

    ABSTRACT: The combined effects of data overload, source variability, and the effects of a wide variety of cognitive biases add enormous complexity to the already-complex task of intelligence analysis. Given the criticality of the analysis task, it is imperative that effective tools be developed for mitigating the effects of ever-increasing data loads coming from existing and emerging collection ...

  3. Non-Contact Inspection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF112C117

    ABSTRACT: Inspection of machined composite laminate parts is currently performed using a precision milling machine (PMM) to maneuver a touch probe. When performed on complex parts, this inspection process is extremely time consuming and ties up the PMM for longer time periods than the actual machining. PMM throughput needs to be increased to achieve the F-35 FY2017 program goal of one aircraft ...

  4. Low-Cost Hybrid Cryocoolers for Next-Generation Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF112136

    ABSTRACT: Future airborne imaging sensors will utilize next-generation focal plane technology that must operate at temperatures from 25 to 30 K. Passive cooling techniques such as stored cryogens are heavy and logistically undesirable. Current airborne cryocoolers are too inefficient in this temperature range and space-borne cryocoolers are prohibitively expensive. On this program, Creare prop ...

  5. A CubeSat-Compatible Neutral Wind Sensor

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF121066

    ABSTRACT: CubeSats provide a new, low-cost platform for space weather missions. They enable new mission paradigms, such as the ability to perform multiple measurements of the same physical phenomena globally from several satellites, in contrast to high accuracy measurements of multiple phenomena on the same spacecraft. Flight-tested neutral wind sensors must be miniaturized to fit into these mu ...

  6. Hostile Fire Indicator for Remotely Piloted Aircraft

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF121102

    ABSTRACT: Solid State Scientific Corporation (SSSC) is pleased to propose the design of a multi-threat hostile fire indication (HFI) system for remotely-piloted aircraft (RPA). The HFI system consist of a wide field of view sensor head that employs small multi-spectral imagers in the short-wave infrared (SWIR), with the spectral bands selected specifically for detection of small arms fire (SAF), ...

  7. Microwave Mapping-Transparency Sensor System

    SBC: Compass Technology Group, LLC            Topic: AF121C123

    ABSTRACT: Compass Technology Group (CTG) proposes to develop a new concept in microwave nondestructive evaluation (NDE) in support of the Air Force"s requirement for transparent conductive canopy coating testing. The offered design specifically addresses the need for high-fidelity measurements of defects in aircraft windows in both manufacturing and in-service (depot and field) environments. This ...

  8. Improved Mass Balancing of Turbo Machine Rotors

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF112166

    ABSTRACT: The efficient, effective balancing of jet engine rotors and subassemblies continues to be a challenge for key aerospace applications. While manufacturing methods for balancing have improved significantly over the last ten years, measurement methods and procedures and fixturing have not advanced at the same pace. Modern jet engines require multiple parts and subassemblies to be balance ...

  9. Development of an Extended Endurance Air-Launched, Tube-Integrated, Unmanned System (ALTIUS)

    SBC: Area I, Inc.            Topic: AF112170

    ABSTRACT: The Area-I team propose to leverage their expertise to develop an extended-endurance Air-Launched, Tube-Integrated Unmanned System (ALTIUS). ALTIUS, meaning"higher"in Latin, will provide a paradigm shift in the performance of small, tube-launched remotely piloted aircraft (RPA). Core features and capabilities of the ALTIUS UAS will include: 1) A state-of-the-art, high-energy-density ...

  10. Ultra High Performance Radar Absorbing Material

    SBC: Compass Technology Group, LLC            Topic: AF112195

    ABSTRACT: Traditional anechoic chamber wall treatments have consisted of geometrically tapered carbon loaded foam, which provides good near-normal incidence absorption of specular energy. While this material has served the testing community well over the last few decades, it is fundamentally limited because of the high level of diffuse scatter (tip diffraction), that increases the overall noise l ...
