  1. Autonomous Broad Spectrum Environmental Sentinels

    SBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc.            Topic: A13AT017

    We propose a platform for aerial environmental monitoring based on the integration of two advanced technologies for the first time: a lightweight, flying robotic platform capable of hovering and swarming, and a compact, low-power chemical sensor platform called the Molecular Property Spectrometer (MPS): a robust, low-cost, silicon-chip-based micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) that has been use ...

  2. Cognitive Radio Spectrum Management and Waveform Adaptation for Advanced Wideband Space Communication Systems

    SBC: SHARED SPECTRUM COMPANY            Topic: AF11BT03

    ABSTRACT: Shared Spectrum Company (SSC) partners with Virginia Tech (VT) to develop resilient and agile space communication systems using innovative cognitive radio techniques. The objective of this STTR Phase II project is to develop anti-jamming capability using frequency agility provided by Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) technology for satellite communications (SATCOM) systems. The SSC team foc ...

  4. Semiconductor Nanomembrane based Sensors for High Frequency Pressure Measurements

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: AF13AT15

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force Phase I program would develop and demonstrate semiconductor nanomembrane (NM) based sensors and arrays for high frequency pressure measurements, using SOI (Silicon on Insulator) NM technique in combination with our pioneering HybridsilTM copolymer nanocomposite materials. NanoSonic would work cooperatively with Virginia Tech to develop an improved mechanical and electrical ...

  5. High-Performance Magnesium Alloys and Composites by Efficient Vapor Phase Processing

    SBC: Directed Vapor Technologies International, Inc.            Topic: A14AT007

    The low density of magnesium makes it of interest for the development of advanced materials having high specific strength and stiffness. Current Mg applications, however, are limited by the performance and cost/quality relationships of existing Mg-alloy systems. One approach to obtain improved Mg alloys is through the development of new alloys and/or Mg-based composite materials that are enabled t ...

  6. Biologically-Derived Targeted Antimicrobials for Textile Applications

    SBC: TECHULON, INC.            Topic: A14AT012

    Skin infections caused by bacteria represent a significant risk to wounded soldiers. The most common source of bacterial infection is found in the fabrics of clothing, boots, and gear worn by the warfighter. Reducing the risk of infection for soldiers by treating the source fabrics will lead to positive outcome and support medically-related activities in non-sterile environments encountered by t ...

  7. Multiphysics-based Sensor Fusion

    SBC: Guerci Consulting LLC            Topic: AF13AT01

    ABSTRACT: A new approach to multisensor fusion is proposed that utilizes a knowledge-aided (KA) multi-physics model as the main fusion engine, as opposed to traditional purely statistical methods. The new Multi-Physics Sensor Fusion (MPSF) is enabled by advances in high performance computing, knowledge-aided (KA) processing, and new techniques in multi-physics modeling. Traditional sensor fusion ...

  8. Decision Making under Uncertainty for Dynamic Spectrum Access

    SBC: SHARED SPECTRUM COMPANY            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: SSC and VT develop algorithms and approaches to manage uncertainty in dynamic spectrum access (DSA) systems for small satellite constellations. We use various DSA rule sets such as sensing, database, and monitoring systems to reduce the uncertainty on a systems level. We investigate uncertainty modeling using Dempster-Schafer theory to build belief, disbelief and ignorance maps of spe ...

  9. 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. ...

  10. Security in Cyber-Physical Networked Systems

    SBC: Global InfoTek, Inc            Topic: AF13AT05

    ABSTRACT: Global InfoTek, Inc. recognizes both the unique technical challenges associated with security in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), and the critical importance of such systems across the DOD. Our solution consists for four critical elements: 1. A permissive, kernel-level, whitelisting approach. This identifies unexplained changes to executable code in a target CPS, using an abs ...
