  1. Seamless Non-Line-Of-Sight Communications for Urban Warfare


    This project will investigate candidate space-time coding schemes to be incorporated in a multiple-input multiple output two-way communication system that operates within an urban warfare environment. The main objective is to increase channel capacity to achieve high-quality video transmission using narrow signal bandwidths, typically deployed for voice channels. The investigation will determine t ...

  2. Passive High Performance Heat Storage and Dissipation Technology for Transient High Power Thermal Management

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T010

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT), in partnership with the University of Nevada-Reno (UNR), is developing a high performance metal hydride heat storage and dissipation technology for high power lasers. The proposed technology incorporates heat pipes for passive acquisition and dissipation of high heat flux heat loads and metal hydrides for storage of the heat loads during the laser operati ...

  3. AppMon: Application Monitors for Not-Yet-Trusted Software

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: OSD06SP2

    Full certification and testing of application programs provides a level of assurance that they will not harm host systems, but it takes a long time. For this reason, software users are often faced with a vexing dilemma: in order to obtain critical new functionality, they must use software that may damage their systems or render it vulnerable to attack. To address this problem, ATC-NY, Cornell Un ...

  4. Random Radar


    Black River Systems Co., Inc. and Syracuse Research Corporation propose to develop a portable self-contained sensor, of size consistent with carriage and operation by a single airman, mounting on a pickup truck or a C-130 aircraft, capable of standoff sense-through-the-wall detection and location of humans and mapping their surroundings in real time. The key discriminators of the proposed baselin ...

  5. Deobfuscating tools for the validation and verification of tamper-proofed software

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: OSD06NC5

    We propose a deobfuscation tool that uses machine-code analysis to expose self-protecting malware for further analysis (e.g., by an automated malware detector, or a human analyst) using dynamic disassembly techniques. The proposed deobfuscator will also be capable of checking that the (self-protecting) program output from a tamper-proofing tool is indeed protected, and has the same behavior as the ...

  6. Reverse Engineering Kernel Mode Rootkits

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: OSD06NC4

    While the tools to combat malicious rootkits have evolved over the years, their effectiveness has paled before the increasing stealth of malware designed specifically for hiding from such tools. A next-generation reverse-engineering tool is needed to counter the growing threat of modern rootkits. This new forensics tool will utilize a powerful set of techniques to identify a broad class of malici ...

  7. Nonlinear Enhancement of Visual Target Detection

    SBC: JHM TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF05T021

    For Phase II, the objectives are threefold. The first objective is to utilize the insights gained in Phase I regarding the established fundamental analytical detection framework and optimization solutions for stochastic resonance. These insights will now be utilized to broaden the scope of the research into several major categories including a.) extensions to the optimized SR detection and estima ...

  8. New Energetic Solid Propellant Ingredients

    SBC: MACH I Inc.            Topic: OSD05T001

    Boron has significant potential as a high energy density fuel in munitions and propellants. Its superior energy density makes it attractive as a fuel component in conventional solid propellants, as well as fuel slurries for ramjet applications. For a ramjet ducted rocket, theoretical density impulses of 1600-1800 sec-g/cm3 have been reported, 45% higher than the best hydrocarbon formulation. Bo ...

  9. Intracellular Detection of Small Molecules in Live Cells

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF11BT09

    ABSTRACT: Protection of first responders who are exposed to hazards including chemical warfare agents (CWAs) is a very critical need. The need is derived from not only their welfare but their ability to respond, protect the community and provide logistical support to the response. A simple exposure monitor would provide critical information to the first responder and allow them to respond accor ...

  10. Physical Sub-Model Development for Turbulence Combustion Closure


    ABSTRACT: The innovation proposed is a computationally-tractable, physics-based, portable turbulent combustion modeling strategy for application to a wide range of Air Force aero-propulsive systems, including augmentors, liquid rockets and scramjets. This modeling strategy will be implemented within an Application Programming Interface (API) library suitable for easy integration within Air Force ...
