  2. Efficient Techniques for Formal Verification of PowerPC 750 Executables

    SBC: Aries Design Automation, LLC            Topic: X102

    We will develop an efficient tool for formal verification of PowerPC 750 executables. The PowerPC 750 architecture is used in the radiation-hardened RAD750 flight-control computers that are utilized in many space missions. The resulting tool will be capable of formally checking: 1) the equivalence of two instruction sequences; and 2) properties of a given instruction sequence. The tool will automa ...

  3. An Efficient Parallel SAT Solver Exploiting Multi-Core Environments

    SBC: Aries Design Automation, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The hundreds of stream cores in the latest graphics processors (GPUs), and the possibility to execute non-graphics computations on them, open unprecedented levels of parallelism at a very low cost. We will investigate ways to efficiently exploit this parallelism in order to accelerate the execution of a Boolean Satisfiability (SAT) solver. SAT has a wide range of applications, including formal ver ...

  6. High-Fidelity Simulation of Turbofan Noise

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: A203

    Broadband fan noise — closely tied to turbulent flow on and around the fan blades — represents a key challenge to the noise reduction community due to the interaction of a highly turbulent flow field with complex, moving geometries. Prediction and high-fidelity simulation of fan noise demands a fundamental innovation in CFD methods due to moving geometries and accuracy requirements. The objectiv ...

  7. Voice to Text Language Translation (VTLT)

    SBC: Ingenium Technologies Corporation            Topic: A105

    A feasibility analysis of adding a second modality to pilot/Air Traffic Control (ATC) communications. The real time availability of text in Air Traffic Control ground systems and pilot displays promises improvements in the safety and efficiency of pilot/ATC communication. The improvements would be especially applicable in high density/high workload environments such as low altitude terminal operat ...

  8. Super Polishing of Aluminum 6061-T6 Mirrors

    SBC: MICROENGINEERED METALS, INC.            Topic: S205

    An innovative 2D super-polishing process for Aluminum 6061-T6 planar mirrors which removes diamond point turning (DPT) grooves and attains rms surface finishes below 10 Angstroms has been developed. Present techniques for post-polishing of DPT grooves fail to completely remove the periodic structure resulting in a loss of specular energy into undesired diffracted orders. The long-term objecti ...

  9. InGaP HBT Lift-Off for High Efficiency L-band T/R Module

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses the need for the development of higher efficiency power amplifiers at L-band using GaAs HBT (heterojunction bipolar transistors) for pulsed mode radar applications. In this proposal we offer a novel approach for signifcantly improving the thermal characteristics of high power GaAs based HBTs. This work will be accomplished by the development of a high-yield, 4-inch epitax ...
