  1. Multispectral Desert Fauna Surveillance and Recognition System

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: AF093222

    We propose the creation and deployment of an automated machine vision based sensor, tracking, and identification system for monitoring wildlife in support of managing natural resources. However, far more is needed beyond basic tracking. Our proposed solution is twofold – software and hardware. The software solution is to develop an architecture consisting of • Multiple networked cameras (wi ...

  2. Enabling End User Computing Environments

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: AF093038

    The High Assurance Platform Workstation (HAPWS) offers affordable and easy-to-manage multi-level and cross-domain capabilities to end-users in a desktop or console form-factor. It allows the end-user to have multiple windows of entire operating systems running in different security domains. The HAPWS will keep pace with most technology advancements with low re-certification effort. HP and Dell ...

  3. Automatic Artificial Diversity for Virtual Machines

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: AF093053

    Large scale adoption of homogeneous computing environments presents serious risk of automated attacks due to the unified nature of the computing environments. Botnet and computer virus attacks are successful due to widespread unification of computing systems, presenting a uniform attack surface so an attack devised for one machine can be replicated to millions of machines. A method available in co ...

  4. Non-Intrusive Direct Part Marking

    SBC: CLARK-MXR, INC.            Topic: AF093191

    DoD policy requires a 2-dimensional data matrix machine-readable, item unique identification (IUID) as defined in MIL-STD-130 on expensive and critical aircraft components such as jet engine parts. Laser marking is ideal because it requires no special fixture, it can be done from an angle on complex surfaces, the size of the mark can be adjusted to fit the available space, and the beam doesn’t w ...

  5. Failure Initiation Predictors for Reliability-Based Design of Hybrid Composite Materials

    SBC: Comet Technology Corporation            Topic: AF08T025

    ABSTRACT: This proposal is concerned with the development of a novel failure initiation and progressive failure analysis modeling method for advanced composite structures, including the analysis of selected structural joints utilizing a statistically based micromechanics model embedded in a 3D non-linear finite element code. The method accounts for the interaction between out-of-plane failure and ...

  6. Next-generation magnetic flowmeter for characterizing the dynamic behavior of novel energetic materials for space propulsion

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF08T010

    The objective of this program is to build upon many decades of experience with magnetic flowmeters to develop a next-generation system to measure the burning surface admittance of high-energy-density solid propellants at high frequencies and pressures. Using the results of research on solid propellant rocket motor combustion instability from the past fifty years, one can directly measure the ac ...

  7. High-Productivity, Assured, Mixed-Criticality Systems Development with Real-time Java

    SBC: Fiji Systems LLC            Topic: AF093005

    This proposal will reduce certification costs due to the ability to partition low-criticality tasks and automate the generation of some certification artifacts using compiler techniques. By using Safety Critical Java as the source language, time and space partitioning will not entail expensive context switch cost or require additional memory for multiple operating system instances, which we expect ...

  8. Skin-Friction Sensor for Hypersonic Flows

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: AF09BT32

    Michigan Aerospace Corporation proposes to develop an optical MEMS based skin friction sensor specifically designed for hypersonic applications. This instrument will be capable of shear stress resolutions as small as 0.01 Pa, have a high dynamic range, and data rates in excess of 100 Hz. The sensor will be compact and tolerant of the extreme environmental conditions of hypersonic propulsion test f ...

  9. New Ceramic Laser Hosts for High Power Lasers

    SBC: NANOCEROX, INC..            Topic: AF083076

    Rare earth sesquioxide transparent ceramics doped with ytterbium are being developed for use in thin disk lasers due to their favorable thermal and optical properties. Nanocrystalline oxide powders are produced using liquid feed flame spray pyrolysis. Particular emphasis is placed on production of high purity powders that can be consolidated to without the formation of second phase scattering ce ...

  10. Multifunctional Nanocomposite Structures Via Layer-by-Layer Assembly Process

    SBC: Nico Technologies Corp.            Topic: AF09BT36

    The realization of materials with record mechanical and electrical properties is of paramount importance to the Air Force and other branches of the US Armed Forces. Layer-by-layer (LBL) assembly is capable of producing nanocomposite materials with record properties surpassing those made by many traditional composite preparation techniques. However the process is time consuming and typically yiel ...
