  1. NOC- Network-on-a-Chip for Hardware-based Accelerated Simulation of Ad Hoc Mobile Communications Networks

    SBC: ACHRONIX SEMICONDUCTOR LLC            Topic: A06T008

    Large scale Wireless ad hoc networks are growing in use in both military and commercial environments. In the military environment, the Future Combat Systems (FCS) initiative will rely upon the Tactical Mobile Ad Hoc Communications Network (TMACN) for all communications between warfighters, manned and unmanned military equipment, and sensors. Simulation and performance estimation of the TMACN is ...

  2. An Integrated Hardware-Software Platform for Real-Time Modeling and Simulation of TMACNs

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: A06T008

    The Army’s Future Combat System will rely on a data communications backbone based on the tactical mobile ad-hoc communications network (TMACN). The unique nature of TMACNs – their mobility, adaptability, and potentially substantial sizes – makes performance prediction a difficult task, and one that is best carried out through simulation. The team of Advanced Acoustic Concepts and RTI Interna ...

  3. Advanced Radar Data Fusion- Multiple Input Multiple Output Sensor Acquisition (MIMOSA) System

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: MDA06T003

    Radar targets provide a rich scattering environment that produces from 5 to 25 dB target fluctuations. The spatial dependence of target scattering has been understood for some time and it has been shown that targets produce essentially independent scattering returns when radiated from sufficiently different directions. Thus, if receivers are distributed over a wide enough area, which is the premis ...

  4. AppMon: Application Monitors for Not-Yet-Trusted Software

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: OSD06SP2

    Full certification and testing of application programs provides a level of assurance that they will not harm host systems, but it takes a long time. For this reason, software users are often faced with a vexing dilemma: in order to obtain critical new functionality, they must use software that may damage their systems or render it vulnerable to attack. To address this problem, ATC-NY, Cornell Un ...

  5. Real-Time Detector of Human Fatigue

    SBC: Bio-Behavior Analysis Systems, LLC            Topic: AF04T007

    We propose to develop a computer based system for the online analysis of bio-behavioral signals associated with momentary loss of alertness. We will continue our development of bio-behavioral measures indicative of lapses in alertness. Our system will use only measures that can be obtained without attaching sensors to the operator. We will concentrate on monitoring the oculomotor system using came ...

  6. Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) Display Technology for Military Aircraft

    SBC: EMAGIN CORP.            Topic: N05T003

    The objective is to demonstrate the feasibility of a robust and reliable thin-film encapsulation for OLED devices. Phase I successfully demonstrated the efficacy of thin-film layer structures that would prevent moisture and oxygen permeation. Techniques were developed for low-temperature deposition of transparent and low-stress thin films suitable for encapsulating OLED devices. Phase II will exte ...

  7. Semantics-Aware Malware Detection

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: A05T006

    Malicious code, including worms and viruses, causes huge economic damage every year. The goal of this work is to advance the state of the art in defenses against malware. The approach has consists of three parts: (1) malware normalization will remove comm

  8. Deobfuscating tools for the validation and verification of tamper-proofed software

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: OSD06NC5

    We propose a deobfuscation tool that uses machine-code analysis to expose self-protecting malware for further analysis (e.g., by an automated malware detector, or a human analyst) using dynamic disassembly techniques. The proposed deobfuscator will also be capable of checking that the (self-protecting) program output from a tamper-proofing tool is indeed protected, and has the same behavior as the ...

  9. Reverse Engineering Kernel Mode Rootkits

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: OSD06NC4

    While the tools to combat malicious rootkits have evolved over the years, their effectiveness has paled before the increasing stealth of malware designed specifically for hiding from such tools. A next-generation reverse-engineering tool is needed to counter the growing threat of modern rootkits. This new forensics tool will utilize a powerful set of techniques to identify a broad class of malici ...

  10. RF Waveform Library Reader

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N06T029

    Digital cross correlation represents the ideal method of realizing the optimal (matched) filtering of the wide variety of time dependent waveforms used by the DoD and thereby the maximum probability reception in high EMI/dense signal environments. Direct from RF, direct reception is increasingly feasible as fast clocking digital technologies such as SiGe, III-V semiconductors, and superconducting ...
