  1. A Range Segment Upgrade for Air Force Satellite Control Network with Smart Antennas and Cognitive Satellite Radios

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF14AT16

    ABSTRACT: A range segment upgrade for Air Force satellite control network (AFSCN) will significantly improve system effectiveness via spectrum sharing and seamless interoperation. However, the upgraded system requires new capabilities such as real-time and accurate RF interference detection and mitigation, array antenna backlobe/sidelobe suppressions, accurate performance degradation prediction, ...

  2. Advanced Technology for Demilitarization of Plastic Bonded

    SBC: GRADIENT TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    Gradient Technology in conjunction with Professor M. Hillmyer of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Minnesota proposed to develop advanced technology to recover and convert the explosive and urethane binder found in plastic bonded explosives. This technology provides a unique reclamation, recovery, and reuse opportunity for dramatically reducing the disposal cost of technology munit ...

  3. An Innovative Software Tool for Blades Stress Estimation during Multiple Simultaneous Vibratory Mode

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT22

    ABSTRACT: ADI and ASU propose to develop a novel methodology for blade peak stress prediction from limited strain gage/tip-timing measurements when multiple vibratory modes are present. The current protocol assumes that only one mode is present and only provides upper and lower bound estimates of the blade peak stress when multiple modes are important. It is proposed here to construct the blade m ...

  4. Assured Information Sharing in Clouds

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF11BT30

    ABSTRACT: In the future, numerous military database, documentation, and mission-critical information systems will be migrated to the clouds, due to cloud cost-efficiency and accessing flexibility. However, the cloud servers are generally untrusted either for data owners or users. In this proposal, A3IS (Attribute-based Algorithms for Assured Information Sharing) is proposed for dynamically and se ...

  5. CPS: Creative Problem Solver

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: N16AT002

    Military systems operate in complex, adversarial environments where their initial planned operations are often overcome by events, but soldiers use those systems in creative ways to achieve their mission objectives. For example, complex ground robotic systems that were initially deployed for surveillance and explosive ordinance disposal have instead been used as decoys, ammunition carriers, and ot ...

  6. CyberSTEPS- Cyber Skills Training with Electronic Performance Support

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF16AT08

    There are many challenges in creating Air Force systems that are resilient against cyber threats. The cyber environment and its threats are highly dynamic, requiring practices and training to be dynamic as well. Cyber threats must be considered during th...

  7. Decision Making under Uncertainty for Dynamic Spectrum Access

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: Due to scarcity of spectrum, Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) becomes a needed technology to improve the utilization of electromagnetic spectrum for DoD satellite communication. However, current DSA approaches are developed for terrestrial communications without addressing the unique challenges for SATCOM environments such as error-prone spectrum sensing, high mobility, and large coverage. ...

  8. Design, Reconfigure, and Evaluate Autonomous Models in Training

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: The proliferation of autonomous- and human-machine systems necessitates the creation of new tools for system design and evaluation. Key among these are simulation testbeds that support interactions between multiple warfighters and systems, and methods for creating and integrating intelligent agent models into simulation environments. We see a significant opportunity to advance the state ...

  9. Development of III-V Terahertz Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF03T024

    The purpose of this Phase I study is to develop quantum cascade laser (QCL) with terahertz (THz) emission. Terahertz photons have energies which lie in the regime between optical photons and high frequency radio waves and have many important commercial and military applications. In the QCL, quantum wells (QWs) and injection layers are grown in a III-V semiconductor superlattice. The QWs and barr ...

  10. DREAMIT- Design, Reconfigure and Evaluate Autonomous Models in Training

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF15AT14

    Our Phase I work focused on improving modeling and simulations so that the impact of autonomous systems in the battlespace could be better understood. As we have trained our attention on Phase II, it has become increasingly clear that the work we are doing to improve the modeling and simulation of autonomous systems also provides significant leverage for the development of the intelligent behavior ...
