  3. 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. ...

  4. 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 ...

  10. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: ESTAT Actuation, Inc.            Topic: AF19BT001

    Designing actuation hardware for autonomous systems is challenging due to the high weight and power consumption of conventional actuators and clutches. Compared to existing clutch technologies, the electroadhesive clutches produced by ESTAT have exceptional holding force as a ratio of both mass and power consumption. They weigh 10x less and consumes 1000x less power than other clutching technologi ...
