  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. Operational Outer Zone Energetic Charged Particle Model

    SBC: Space Sciences Innovations INC            Topic: AF17CT03

    The goal of the proposed work is to provide the Air Force with a state-of-the-art model of the outer zone energetic charged particles, including data assimilation capabilities. The UCLA-developed Versatile Electron Radiation Belt (VERB) model will be optimized for various measurements obtained on various satellite orbits by different instruments. We will transfer VERB code to SSI, test and validat ...

  7. Operational Outer Zone Energetic Charged Particle Model

    SBC: ADVANCED RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF17CT03

    Earths outer radiation belt, which consists of electrons with hundreds of keV to MeV energies, is a highly dynamic and driven environment.The large variations in electron flux, if unaccounted for, can cause satellites that travel through this complex region to experience anomalous behavior ranging from temporary satellite outages due to electrostatic discharge events in system electronics to poten ...

  10. Novel Ceramic Composites for Low Loss Hypersonic Radome Materials

    SBC: HAMR Industries LLC            Topic: AF18AT013

    As threats emerge in geographically diverse locations, precision responses are often required immediately.However, the time-to-target for many munitions can be simply too long for short lived opportunities.To enable timely responses to long range threats, hypersonic munitions with velocities greater than Mach 5 are necessary.However, with hypersonic velocities comes a significant increase in the a ...
