  2. Cyber Hardening and Agility Technologies for Tactical IP Networks (CHATTIN)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF151030

    ABSTRACT:To enable mission assured operations of aerial IP networks in a hostile cyber threat environment, the Air Force has identified the need for cyber defense technologies which will thwart such cyber attacks on these networks preemptively, i.e., before they are launched by the adversary. To address this need, Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) proposes Cyber Hardening and Agility Techn ...

  5. Reverberation Mitigation of Speech

    SBC: Minerva Systems & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF15AT17

    ABSTRACT: Speech recognition technology is in wide use today and has been successfully integrated in a number of applications. Most of these applications require a microphone located near the talker. However, when a distant microphone is used where the speaker is at some distance from the microphone as in a hands-free communication, or in a meeting room, there is a major problem with the captured ...

  6. Common Embedded Vehicle Network Diagnostics Interface Hardware

    SBC: NEW WAVE DESIGN & VERIFICATION, LLC            Topic: AF151060

    ABSTRACT: New Wave Design & Verification proposes to design and simulate an IEEE-1394b System-on-a-Chip core that provides aircraft network administrators the ability to diagnose issues, provide statistics, and troubleshoot nodes efficiently. Implementation of the IEEE-1394 controller in programmable logic will also provide the opportunity to fix/modify several aspects of the current protocol imp ...

  7. Radiation Hardened Digital to Analog Converter

    SBC: Trusted Semiconductor Solutions Inc.            Topic: AF151089

    ABSTRACT:Data transmission in communication systems, RADARs, satellite systems, and other military devices are dominated by analog data conversion. These high performance digital to analog converters (DAC) exceed 3Gsps with 12 bits of resolution and are readily available in the commercial marketplace, but they lack the radiation hardness required to support military satellite applications. Tru ...

  8. Dynamic Airborne Mission Communication System (DYNAMICS)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF141046

    ABSTRACT: Current Air Force unit- and force-level mission planning systems require that users manually enter flight paths. For the emerging class of dedicated airborne communications platforms this is sub-optimal. The mission of these platforms is to extend communications ranges, enabling enhanced (particularly IP-based) connectivity for other mission elements. This calls for a new type of plannin ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Hy-CIRCA: Autonomous Synthesis and Verification of Hybrid Cyber-Physical System Controllers

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF14AT06

    ABSTRACT: To unlock the power of cooperating teams of autonomous cyber-physical systems (CPSs), humans must be able to effectively, reliably, and safely task them using high-level goals. SIFTs Playbook interface approach provides goal-based tasking for multi-agent autonomous missions. SIFTs Cooperative Intelligent Real-time Control Architecture (CIRCA) automatically synthesizes and verifies r ...
