  1. Real-Time Sensor Data Processing and Compression Performed On-board Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: AF131132

    ABSTRACT: The K-128 co-processor leverages insights from neuroscience to achieve superior performance. Unlike previous efforts along those lines, our approach is to create a software programmable co-processor that runs existing applications. One of the most salient characteristics of such a co-processor is its power efficiency: not just a few percent more efficient than a traditional processor, b ...

  4. Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) Compliant GPS Receiver for GEO

    SBC: Minerva Systems & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF141113

    The objective of this proposal is to develop Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) compliant GPS receiver for Geosynchronous Earth Orbit (GEO) applications. In this proposal, we explore an approach to design the GEO GPS SAASM receiver based on improved techniques for signal acquisition (or detection) and then signal tracking (and demodulation) of weak GPS signals. GPS signals availa ...

  5. Mid-wave Infrared (MWIR) Illuminator for Ground and Small Unmanned Aircraft System (SUAS) Targeting

    SBC: LMD Power of Light Corp.            Topic: AF141129

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of mid-wave infrared (MWIR) illuminators for ground and small unmanned aircraft system (SUAS) targeting. Advances such as high-operating-temperature sensors are enabling MWIR imagers with significantly reduced battery consumption, size and weight. This allows MWIR imagers to be used in ground tactical, hand-held and SUAS applications ...

  7. Retinal Image Management System (RIMS)

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: AF141028

    ABSTRACT: Retinal damage is a debilitating condition, which, if left untreated, can lead to blindness. This condition is widespread and has many causes, ranging from accidental exposure to environmental dangers, to complications of disease such as diabetes (diabetic retinopathy), normal complications of aging (macular degeneration) or intentional damage from lasers. Modern retinal diagnostic and ...

  8. Attack Amelioration via Layered Temporal Virtualizaton ("Primer")

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: AF141038

    ABSTRACT: This project will investigate the feasibility of a computing appliance which uses Temporal Virtualization to help ameliorate the effects of malicious software activity. Temporal Virtualization involves the manipulation of virtual time in Type-2 (software) virtual clients in a way that frustrates an adversary"s attempts to corrupt or break out of virtualization. An attack model is assume ...

  9. LAVA: Lightweight Application Virtualization Architecture

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: AF141041

    ABSTRACT: Cloud computing is an attractive platform architecture for many IT applications, particularly because of its support for elastic scaling in response to changing loads. However, adoption of cloud computing is hampered by reduced computing efficiency, higher management cost, and greater vulnerability to attack, as compared with traditional dedicated servers. ATC-NY"s Lightweight Applica ...

  10. Fault Isolation in Hypervisors with Live Migration

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: AF141043

    ABSTRACT: Cloud computing promises dramatic savings through economies of scale for the government and private sectors, but is also brings security concerns. There is a particular need to prevent faults in or attacks occuring on a virtual machine (VM) from affecting the virtual machines of other users. GrammaTech proposes to address this problem by developing a more secure virtualization syste ...
