  2. 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. ...

  3. 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 ...

  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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Fast Response Heat Flux Sensors and Efficient Data Reduction Methodology for Hypersonic Wind Tunnels

    SBC: Innoveering, LLC            Topic: AF17AT001

    There is a DoD need for the development of robust sensors to obtain temporally and spatially resolved surface temperature and heat flux measurements on test articles in blowdown and continuous hypersonic wind tunnels. These micro-heat flux sensors are required in order to better understand the state of the boundary layer of a hypersonic vehicle; to better understand boundary layer instabilities; a ...

  7. Ultra Harsh Environment YSZ Sensor for Hypersonic Testing Facilities

    SBC: Innoveering, LLC            Topic: AF17AT002

    In the growing demand for advanced hypersonic propulsion testing, ground testing diagnostics, a crucial element in minimizing risk in future test flight programs, have lagged behind. Current performance instruments rely on decades-old designs and require complex actively water-cooled systems that are prohibitively expensive and affect in-situ measurements. To deliver uniform and accurate flow fiel ...

  8. Improved Calibration of Sensors and Instruments used for Measurement of High Speed Flow

    SBC: Innoveering, LLC            Topic: AF17AT003

    The proposed effort involves the development of improved calibration concepts and techniques for several class of sensors and instruments that are in use by the Air Force in high speed test facilities. While specific sensors and instruments will be targeted during the core of the effort, it is also proposed to develop a high level tool that assists in the overall calibration process by helping id ...

  9. Uncertainty-Analysis-Driven Reduced-Order Kinetic Models Targeting Combustion Dynamics

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF17AT004

    The design and development of a number of advanced Air Force propulsion systems is substantially limited by the current inability of computational design support tools to adequately and cost-effectively predict the complex flow physics and combustion dynamics that governs system performance and stability. The innovation proposed consists of a comprehensive experimental-modeling framework to (i) sy ...

  10. General Online Object Deep (GOOD) Tracking

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT027

    Automatic high-value target trackers have a number of uses, including real-time sensor slewing on user-nominated targets, offline forensic investigations into where a specific target traveled, and assisting with automated missions running on remote platforms. Instead of automatically tracking all targets within a scene, it can be beneficial to focus on a single or small number of critical targets ...
