  2. Anti-Exploitation Software Protection Systems

    SBC: Siege Technologies, LLC            Topic: OSD11IA1

    State-of-the-art software protection and anti-tamper systems move critical software and data out-of-band to the adversary, by using a hypervisor or on secure hardware. Unfortunately, the systems running this software are built using untrusted commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) parts. Supply chain threats to critical components, such as hardware or firmware Trojans, have invalidated the assumption tha ...

  4. Efficient and Robust Gerotor Compression System for CO2 Capture

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 16c

    Carbon dioxide capture systems are currently being considered to mitigate the increase in atmospheric CO2 concentration caused by fossil fuel combustion. The costs to implement and operate these systems must be reasonable to minimize economic impacts. In particular, the required compression systems will consume significant power, and they will require large capital investment. Advanced technol ...

  7. Hydrogeophysical monitoring system

    SBC: SUBSURFACE INSIGHTS            Topic: 13a

    There are over 350 thousand contaminated sites in the US which will require cleanup by both government and private industry in the next twenty years. The total cost of this environmental site cleanup is estimated to be in the hundreds of billions of dollars. Amongst federal agencies the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Department of Defense (DoD) have the largest cleanup liabilities which amount ...

  10. Development of a High-brightness Field-Emission Superconducting RF Gun

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 05a

    Field emission cathodes are well known in the field of electron microscopy and extensively used because their very small source size (e.g.: sharpened end of a needle) can lead to very high- brightness electron beams. Recently, important developments in field-emission arrays have made them a viable option for the generation of high-quality beams with improved current as compared to a single tip ...
