  1. Elan: The Event Logic Assistant

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: AF07T019

    Abstraction has been the most reliable means for gaining intellectual control of complex problems and for extending the scope and scale of our analytical abilities. In the past several years, ATC-NY and Cornell University have developed the formalism of {\em event logic\/}to support specification and reasoning about distributed systems at a very high level of abstraction and the refinement of spe ...

  2. Protoplasm: Automating checks for protocol compatibility

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: OSD06SP3

    Pervasive networking provides ever-growing opportunities for collaboration among computer systems operating in different domains. These systems may "speak" in their own protocols and data formats; and determining whether two speak in compatible terms can be difficult. Since manual review is costly, time-consuming, and error-prone, the opportunities for cross-domain collaboration can be fully rea ...

  3. Software System Reliability Analysis

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: OSD06SP4

    Reliability is a crucial characteristic in safety-critical systems, yet it can only be measured late in the software development process when changes are difficult and costly. We propose a framework for estimating the risk of software that can be applied early in the software development life-cycle. This framework will use 21st century source code metrics--derived from advanced static analysis a ...

  4. An Integrated Approach to Sensor Materials Synthesis, Design and Fabrication for Extreme Temperature Applications

    SBC: MESOSCRIBE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF07T002

    An approach is proposed to identify, characterize and integrate high temperature materials into harsh environment diagnostic systems. Program partner URI will sputter candidate conductive oxides with continuously varying levels of doping. Test specimens will be fabricated and systematically assessed using combinatorial synthesis to determine which exhibit the most favorable characteristics e.g., ...

  5. Scalable Mobile Wireless Mesh Networks

    SBC: SPECTRACOM CORP.            Topic: AF06T008

    Scaleable, robust and secure networking of unmanned airborne vehicles (UAVs) is an imperative for achieving Air Force objectives in deploying future effects-based operations (EBO). UAVs of the future must overcome degrading network conditions to transfer critical data for reach-back operations, support peer-peer communications, and operate in high mobility environments. To meet these needs we pro ...

  6. Enhance Visual Target Detection Using Nonlinear Stochastic Resonance Technique

    SBC: APPLIED SR TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05T021

    Techniques to detect and identify the interested target burying in cluttered background and noise have been widely needed in both military and civilian applications. The enhancement of the target detectability is a critical factor in improving the performance of detectors. The team of Applied SR Technologies, Inc. and the Polytechnic University at Brooklyn, New York is exploring new interdisciplin ...

  7. Semantics-Aware Malware Detection

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: A05T006

    The goal of this proposal is to advance the state-of-the-art in malware detectors, and thereby offer protection against next-generation malicious code. Currently, malware detectors - in the form of commercial virus scanners - are an important component in the defense of computer systems. We propose to build on a technique that has demonstrated its ability to detect malware in the presence of commo ...

  8. Nonlinear Enhancement of Visual Target Detection

    SBC: JHM TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF05T021

    The establishment of an analytic framework for image processing algorithmic development utilizing stochastic resonance is a prime objective of this proposal. In order to achieve this goal, it is imperative to assess the relationship of the non-Gaussian nature of the noise processes, the non-linear aspects of the signal processing or suboptimal detection device, as well as the characteristics of t ...

  9. Rapid, Hardware Accelerated, Large Data Visualization

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: A05T002

    Scientists and engineers use computer simulation to model the behavior of physical phenomena. These simulation techniques often produce prodigious amounts of output data. In order to view results, interactive visualization is used since it provides the ability to visually inspect data and interactively query particular values. However, the size of data is becoming large enough to challenge the ab ...

  10. Innovative Concepts for Wireless Strain Sensing in Turbine Engines

    SBC: MESOSCRIBE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05T004

    MesoScribe Technologies proposes the development of a passive wireless strain system based on the Company's innovative Direct Write technology. Embedded circuit elements will be fabricated directly onto the surfaces of compressor blades and stator vanes. The sensors themselves will be very low weight and low profile. A strictly passive strain monitoring configuration is proposed where a resona ...
