  5. Compressive Sampling Applied to Millimeter-wave Single Detector Imagers

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: A14AT003

    Millimeter and terahertz wave imaging can image objects behind or within other objects. However, current equipment that does this quickly is expensive, and affordable equipment is prohibitively slow. Researchers at Missouri S & T have successfully developed and demonstrated several innovative millimeter wave imaging systems capable of real-time, high-resolution imaging at frequencies up to 150 G ...

  10. Secure Efficient Cross-domain Protocols

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT08

    ABSTRACT: Coordinating and sharing information across multi-level security (MLS) networks are of great interest in many military applications. However, it is very challenging to accomplish those goals due to the heterogeneous security classifications of different network domains. The recent proposed cross-domain solutions (CDS) provide initial steps to make such applications possible. However, th ...
