  2. Programmable Picosat Transceiver

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: AF112072

    ABSTRACT:The goal of the Space Test Program is to enable the US Air Force to rapidly develop emerging space technologies by providing economical flight opportunities to increase a technologys TRL. Over the past decade, the CubeSat form factor has emerged as an economical platform for testing technologies that can be packaged within the 10x10x30 cm form factor. However, the lack of a programmable S ...

  6. Automated Scaling Software for Oblique Incidence Ionograms

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF151098

    ABSTRACT:The objective of this solicitation is to develop real-time automatic scaling software for oblique ionograms (OIs). The NWRA team has developed an extensive HF propagation computational tool set, which includes a capability called APEx (Automated Point Extraction) for automatically finding vertical ionogram (VI) traces within an ionogram image. APEx does not require pre-separation of the O ...

  8. Optimized Additive Manufacturing for High Dielectric Strength

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: AF15AT07

    ABSTRACT: To produce high dielectric strength insulator materials, our approach, called Optimized Additive Manufacturing for High Dielectric Strength (OAHDS), will optimize fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printing in order to fabricate high density parts. Currently, thermoplastics 3D printed via FFF have dielectric strengths one to three orders of magnitude lower than injection molded parts ma ...

  10. Malicious Behavior Detection for High Risk Data Types (DetChambr)

    SBC: Leviathan Security Group, Inc.            Topic: AF151031

    ABSTRACT: Leviathan Security Group (LSG) has previously created a system called Major Myer, under the DARPA CINDER program, which is capable of detecting exploitation attempts in images of application memory using emulation. It has focused on crashdumps, but is theoretically not limited to this purpose. LSG has since commercialized the technology developed under that project into a product called ...
