  1. Ultra-wideband (UWB) Over-the-Horizon (OTH) Radar Array

    SBC: Q-Track Corporation            Topic: AF073064

    In Phase I, Q-Track assessed the feasibility of a variety of element and array designs for an Over-the-Horizon (OTH) radar array. Q-Track identified a capacitively coupled, connected curtain array as being most promising for the OTH radar application. This array can be implemented with relatively few towers so it will be simple and inexpensive to implement, yet the array concept appears to have th ...

  2. Processing for Flexible Sensors

    SBC: INVARIANT CORP.            Topic: AF081051

    In contrast to the typical single aperture systems found in weapons today, arthropod compound eyes are multi-aperture optical systems. The compound eye has evolved into many forms, each one of which is specifically adapted to the optical environment of the insect or crustacean that it resides upon. The applications of artificial compound eye sensors range from highly complex applications such as t ...

  3. Enabling the Modeling and Destabilization of Terror Networks using a Novel Rule-Based Boolean Pseudo-Dynamic Approach

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF081021

    The overall objective of the Phase II effort is to design and implement the BANDIT software platform that utilizes structured and unstructured intelligence data for the creation, visualization, and quantitative analysis of terrorist networks. BANDIT will ultimately serve as an enabling technology for conducting offensive operations against terrorist networks by objectively identifying individuals ...

  5. Legerdemain: An Illusion-based system to thwart covert access and exfiltration

    SBC: Sentar, Inc.            Topic: OSD09IA2

    The integration of software and components from multiple sources, the interconnection of systems via the internet, and the rapid pace of change in the computer industry as a whole virtually guarantee the continued emergence of threats to systems and information via new and undetected vulnerability vectors. Moreover, malicious insiders and social engineering can also be involved in cases of covert ...

  6. Accurate and Efficient Computation of Electromagnetic Fields and Waves over Unbounded Regions in 3D

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC            Topic: AF081001

    ABSTRACT: The proposed project will remove the computational bottleneck in the currently adopted numerical treatment of exterior 3D magnetic fields around high-current pulsed power devices. Existing simulators introduce computationally expensive and nonphysical magnetic diffusion in the exterior region. In contrast, our approach is physically and mathematically rigorous and dramatically improves ...

  10. Data Authentication and Dissemination using Watermarking for Net-Centric Operations

    SBC: Pikewerks Corporation            Topic: OSD07I07

    The ability to provide positive identification and authentication of data as it is disseminated throughout a network environment remains unsolved for the vast majority of current operational deployments; however, recent advances in steganography and watermarking technology have now begun to provide approaches that address this problem. In combination with traditional encryption, hashing, and time ...
