  1. Nonequilibrium Plasma-Assisted Combustion-Efficiency Control in Vitiated Air

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF13AT04

    ABSTRACT: The ability of plasmas to modify combustion has been known for more than 50 years. Recent advances in plasma generation technology and measurement diagnostics have led to extensive efforts to understand both the kinetics of the plasma-flame interaction and the enhancement of combustion properties such as ignition, extinction, flame speed and dynamics. Combustion Science & Engineering, ...

  6. RADIUS: Reliable and Adaptive Decision makIng under Uncertainty for Spectrum access

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: Intelligent Automation Inc. proposes to design a robust decision making and dynamic spectrum access (DSA) system for satellite communications under uncertainty. Our system integrates various types of uncertainty caused by environment, regulation, uncontrollable user effects, and prediction. We will first develop methods to quantify the uncertainty by either individual observation or col ...

  7. Pantograph: Secure, Cross-domain Object Models

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT08

    ABSTRACT: Most cross-domain information flows require some human intervention to ensure that the requirements for releasability are met. Such intervention is expensive and slow, and can form a bottleneck in operations. Unfortunately, fully automated sharing of information across security domain boundaries is also fraught with difficulties due to problems with identifying releasable information, a ...

  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 ...

  9. HPC-MTT: High Performance Computing Enabled Multiple Target Tracking for Urban Surveillance Areas

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF13AT10

    ABSTRACT: Advances in large scale visual sensors enable (near) real time acquisition of imagery data over wide urban surveillance areas. Data collected by such sensors, such as the wide area motion imagery (WAMI) systems, however poses computational challenges to existing visual analysis algorithms. Among many tasks, tracking multiple moving target indicators (MTI) is of fundamental importance si ...

  10. Broad-Spectrum PV Devices Based on Charged Quantum Dots

    SBC: Optoelectronic Nanodevices LLC            Topic: AF13AT13

    ABSTRACT: This project addresses the need for high-efficiency broad-spectrum PV cells. The proposed original PV design is based on quantum dots with built-in charge (Q-BIC), where the dot charging is realized by selective doping of dot medium. The preliminary data demonstrate that the charged dots placed in a single p-n-junction strongly enhance harvesting and conversion of sub-bandgap photons an ...
