  1. Autonomic Knowledge Representation Construction for Software Protection Systems

    SBC: AVIRTEK, INC.            Topic: OSD09IA4

    The increased complexity, scale and capabilities of current software elements make current security tools and technologies incapable to protect software against attacks. It also makes it very hard to proactively detect their vulnerabilities that might be exploited by attackers. Our focus will be to investigate and study the construction of a near human knowledge representation of the state of a sy ...

  2. Physics of Failure Based Electronics Reliability Analysis Software

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: OSD08M02

    Expert analysis tools that rapidly and accurately evaluate the reliability of electronics modules, such as printed circuit board assemblies (PCBA) for component health, performance and situational self awareness, are critically important to mission effectiveness of DoD systems. To accomplish this, the interactions between electronic components need to be predicted and monitored within a comprehens ...

  3. Handheld Real Time (RT) Climatic/Environmental Sensor

    SBC: VIRTUAL TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: AF073110

    This proposal will provide immediate decision support data, enabling appropriate and cost effective responses (shut down vs. continue) for training exercises/facilities. Specifically, the DoD requires the ability to “train as we fight and fight as we train”, however training is severely limited by visible emissions compliance in the current regulatory environment. Regulated facilities will hav ...

  4. Cyber Superiority for Air Force Combatant Commanders

    SBC: AVIRTEK, INC.            Topic: AF08BT06

    Cyber-attacks targeting our info-structure are being launched continuously from hostile locations. It is becoming apparent that securing US info-structure and preventing cyber-attacks cannot be met with existing techniques. By continuously monitoring and analyzing cyber-space applications, services, and resources and through the use of autonomic agents, AppFlows, data mining, and multi-level cyber ...

  5. The Low Cost Production of Titanium Alloy Powder Directly from Ore

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: AF081035

    Because of a unique combination of properties, titanium alloys play a key role in DoD systems.  One of the key issues that is preventing more widespread use of Ti-alloys is the cost and cycle time of the Kroll process followed by multiple steps to convert to powders or products.  A viable approach of combined electrochemical and chemical processing has demonstrated in a Phase I program that low ...

  6. Advanced Combustion Stability Analysis Tools for Ox-rich Preburners

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF083112

    The goal of this SBIR is the enhancement of the current state-of-the-art combustion instability analysis tools.  The planned enhancement is focused on capturing the effects of injection element distribution and the inclusion of substantial film cooling and diluent injection.  These characteristics are extremely important in the design of high-pressure oxygen rich staged combustion (ORSC) engines ...

  7. Live, Virtual, and Constructive (LVC) Common Performance Measurement Development, Tracking, and Warehousing System

    SBC: Lumir Research Institute, Inc.            Topic: AF081014

    The capability to routinely collect and track human performance data across a variety of training, rehearsal, exercise, and test and evaluation environments is a paramount need for the Air Force.  Lumir Research Institute proposes to build the Common Data Acquisition system (CoDA), a software suite that will provide access to performance data from various simulation environments regardless of the ...

  8. An All-Fiber Mid-Infrared Frequency Combs

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF08BT16

    A low-cost fiber-based octave-spanning frequency comb system operating in the mid-IR region is proposed, which is based on femtosecond-Tm-fiber-laser-pumped supercontinuum generation in a mid-IR-transmitting dispersion-engineered fiber. An all-fiber femtosecond mode-locked Tm-doped fiber laser at 2 micron will be used as a seed source for mid-IR supercontinuum generation. A femtosecond soliton fib ...

  9. Replacement for Hexavalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Magnesium and Zinc-Nickel

    SBC: METALAST INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: AF083226

    The European Union''s RoHS and WEE Directives mandated the elimination of the carcinogenic, hexavalent chromium coatings for metals, including magnesium and zinc-nickel plated substrates.  The purpose of this project is to find chemistry that will meet requirements of industry performance specifications and of the mandate.  METALAST intends to explore trivalent chromium in conjunction with two o ...

  10. Assessment Tools for Evaluating Dynamic Flight Simulation and Force Cueing Fidelity to Improve Simulation Environment Effectiveness

    SBC: Lumir Research Institute, Inc.            Topic: AF083023

    Lumir Research Institute proposes to build the Cueing Automated Assessment Tool (CAAT), a software tool to facilitate evaluations of the effects of force cueing on training effectiveness.  The CAAT design will be based on an extensive review and analysis of training environments, force-cueing devices, force-cue sensitive tasks, and existing performance measurement tools (objective, subjective and ...
