  1. 3D Tip Characterization and Surface Reconstruction

    SBC: Nanometrology International, Inc.            Topic: 9070168TT

    Nanometrology International, Inc. (NMI) proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of 3-dimensional (3D) characterization of nanoscale objects using scanning probe microscopy (SPM) with a measurement uncertainty of less than 0.7 nm. To accomplish this task, we propose a novel method of 3D tip characterization and use of an innovative surface reconstruction algorithm recently introduced by NIST and th ...

  2. A Framework for Robust Engineering of Large-Scale Distributed Real-Time Systems

    SBC: L&S COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF083047

    Our Phase I project addressed the challenge of creating a new paradigm for the development of software in which developers evaluate the performance of software architecture and design options early when it can have the greatest impact. Our vision moves software performance analysis from an isolated set of tools that require laborious manual transfer of information among design and analysis tools t ...

  3. A New Hyperspectral Image Capture Tool for Evaluating TBI

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: OSD09H23

    Traumatic Brain Injury accounts for 1525% of all combat casualties and on today"s battlefield, 30-40% of all injuries have a head injury component. The implication of TBI related injuries on the fighting force is that unit readiness is slowed as a result of diminished soldier reaction time and behavioral issues that may reduce the soldier"s responsiveness. Current methods of TBI diagnosis vary f ...

  4. A Novel High Efficiency Thermal-Electrochemical Device for Hybrid PV/T Systems

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF10BT22

    ABSTRACT: Energy issues have been at the center of the national security debate and as the largest single consumer of energy in the United States, the DOD recognizes the need to reduce its reliance on fossil fuel. For a number of years, the department has been making steady progress at decreasing its fossil fuel footprint which has seen solar energy and the use of photovoltaic cells emerge as a ...

  5. Advanced Dielectric Insulation Techniques for High Voltage Pulsed Power Systems

    SBC: Applied Physical Electronics, L.C.            Topic: AF093014

    ABSTRACT: The proposed phase II effort would work to establish new advanced insulation techniques and their corresponding design guidelines that could be employed to reduce the volume existing pulsed power systems, improve their reliability, and possibly improve their mechanical integrity. Additionally, the design of a new pulser is proposed, which will be based on the insulation schemes identifi ...

  6. Analysis of New WWVB Modulation Schemes for Future Broadcast

    SBC: XW, LLC dba Xtendwave            Topic: N/A

    This Phase 2 project targets the completion of the development of an improved system for the broadcasting of the WWVB signal, as a direct continuation of the Phase 1 project, which successfully validated the proposed approach through a feasibility study and analyses. Objectives of this project include the design of the new modulation scheme and protocol, the development of a new time-code generato ...

  7. Automatic Artificial Diversity for Virtual Machines

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: AF093053

    ABSTRACT: We propose to introduce artificial diversity to each installation of a standard platform by running the system using a combination of hardware virtualization and software dynamic translation. Automatic, transparent diversification offers powerful protection for systems that would otherwise remain homogenous. Code exploits are usually highly dependent on the details of the software and t ...

  8. Built-In Damage State Detection and Localization Capabilities for Composite Engine Structures

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: AF093179

    ABSTRACT: Organic matrix composite (OMC) structures used in critical areas such as around engine inlets and exhaust wash structures are known to fail through both hygrothermal and oxidative degradation. Without a reliable means of monitoring the health of these high-temperature composites, degradation can seriously impact an aircraft"s state of readiness. At the same time, time-based maintenanc ...

  9. Commercial Controls Technology Insertion

    SBC: LURACO Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF103202

    ABSTRACT: Currently, Air Force aircraft engines rely heavily on Centralized engine Control System (CCS) architectures. These architectures consist of a Full Authority Digital Electronic Control (FADEC) module that is hard-wired to sensors and actuators. As a result, new control and sensing technology is slowly adopted within aircraft engines, and when these adoptions are made the overhaul cost is ...

  10. Cyber Network Attack and Intrusion Detection and Recovery Environment (CYANIDE)

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: OSD09IA5

    Knowledge Based Systems, Inc. (KBSI) for this project will be developing the Cyber Network Attack and Intrusion Detection and Recovery Environment (CYANIDE), a customizable framework to support the modeling, development, test, and deployment of cyber sensing, monitoring and recovery technology for cyber networks. The CYANIDE vision is to provide a comprehensive simulation-based experimentation fr ...
