  2. A Software Toolkit for Dynamic Control of Active Thermal Management Systems

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N152115

    Under this topic, Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) proposes to develop a software toolset to design and optimize the control architecture for two-phase thermal management systems. The approach with make use of physics based models to capture the component and system level response with high-fidelity. By building on previous successful modeling and experimental validation efforts, the rese ...

  3. Opportunistic Binary Software Fault Encouragement

    SBC: GALOIS, INC.            Topic: N152120

    For many programs, it would be desirable to fail fast in the face of attack in order to preserve confidentiality and integrity. We propose a tool to statically rewrite binaries to increase their fragility, adding this fail-fast property. We will operate on binaries to maximize the number of programs we can protect. Binary rewriting can be applied to any program without cooperation from the compile ...

  4. Detection Identification and Geo-Location of UUVs with Hiawatha

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: N152113

    The utilization, and thereby, threat of unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) is experiencing a significant increase throughout the world. UUVs can be used to track vessels, covertly map ports, and attack targets. UUVs are inherently quiet targets making them difficult to track via traditional acoustic methods. To counter the threat presented by covert UUV activities, other detection and tracking me ...

  5. Synthetic Aperture Radar Approaches for Small Maritime Target Detection and Discrimination

    SBC: LAMBDA SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N152083

    Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) has the ability to detect and discriminate slow moving (= 10 knots) low radar cross section (RCS) objects such as small surface vessels and surface signatures in maritime environments at low-to-mid grazing angles. The physical mechanisms for detection and discrimination are made possible by the combination of coherent and non-coherent scatting phenomenology associate ...

  6. Reconfigurable Conformal Imaging Sensor (RCIS)

    SBC: ChemImage Corporation            Topic: SB152006

    A reconfigurable, small form factor, cost effective, infrared hyperspectral imaging system capable of operating in real-time is required for a broad array of missions to detect a variety of threats under dynamic operating conditions. The solution is the Reconfigurable Conformal Imaging Sensor (RCIS). RCIS is a high frame rate, multivariate hyperspectral imaging tool for use in dynamic threat envir ...

  10. Low Light Short Wave Infrared Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA15022

    Current focal plane array (FPA) technologies for imaging in low-light conditions in the short wave infrared (SWIR) are limited by poor quantum efficiency and/or poor noise characteristics. To address this need, a new SWIR-sensitive linear-mode avalanche photodiode detector array, will be optimized for low-light imaging, fabricated, and demonstrated. Unlike existing SWIRavalanche photodiodes (APDs) ...
