  6. Freeze Casting of Tubular Sulfur Tolerant Materials for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    SBC: Millennitek, LLC            Topic: A14AT011

    Solid oxide fuel cells have long suffered from degradation due to impurities in the fuel and complexities associated with dissimilar materials and high operating temperatures. This degradation lowers the usable cell power output and requires ancillary equipment for fuel sulfur removal and reformation. A unique microstructure for the tubular anode will be produced using a novel freeze-casting tec ...

  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. 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 ...
