  1. Semiconductor Nanomembrane based Sensors for High Frequency Pressure Measurements

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: AF13AT15

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force Phase I program would develop and demonstrate semiconductor nanomembrane (NM) based sensors and arrays for high frequency pressure measurements, using SOI (Silicon on Insulator) NM technique in combination with our pioneering HybridsilTM copolymer nanocomposite materials. NanoSonic would work cooperatively with Virginia Tech to develop an improved mechanical and electrical ...

  2. Multiphysics-based Sensor Fusion

    SBC: Guerci Consulting LLC            Topic: AF13AT01

    ABSTRACT: A new approach to multisensor fusion is proposed that utilizes a knowledge-aided (KA) multi-physics model as the main fusion engine, as opposed to traditional purely statistical methods. The new Multi-Physics Sensor Fusion (MPSF) is enabled by advances in high performance computing, knowledge-aided (KA) processing, and new techniques in multi-physics modeling. Traditional sensor fusion ...

  3. Decision Making under Uncertainty for Dynamic Spectrum Access

    SBC: SHARED SPECTRUM COMPANY            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: SSC and VT develop algorithms and approaches to manage uncertainty in dynamic spectrum access (DSA) systems for small satellite constellations. We use various DSA rule sets such as sensing, database, and monitoring systems to reduce the uncertainty on a systems level. We investigate uncertainty modeling using Dempster-Schafer theory to build belief, disbelief and ignorance maps of spe ...

  4. 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. ...

  5. Security in Cyber-Physical Networked Systems

    SBC: Global InfoTek, Inc            Topic: AF13AT05

    ABSTRACT: Global InfoTek, Inc. recognizes both the unique technical challenges associated with security in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), and the critical importance of such systems across the DOD. Our solution consists for four critical elements: 1. A permissive, kernel-level, whitelisting approach. This identifies unexplained changes to executable code in a target CPS, using an abs ...

  6. Security in Cyber-Physical Networked Systems

    SBC: Azure Summit Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT05

    ABSTRACT: A cyber-physical system (CPS) is a system that features a tight combination of, and coordination between, the system"s computational and physical elements. Today, a pre-cursor generation of cyber-physical systems can be found in areas as diverse as emerging and future combat systems, air-space-cyber activities, as well as smart buildings, bridges and other structures. CPS security mu ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Advanced Architectures and Data Exchange Standards for High Performance Computing (HPC) Application to Wide Area Motion Imagery (WAMI) Tracking

    SBC: Lattice Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT10

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this effort is to develop next-generation architectural and operational concepts, leveraging recent advances in High Performance Computing (HPC) technologies, to improve Wide Area Motion Imagery (WAMI) tracking capacity and performance. WAMI systems typically produce tens of thousands of moving target indicator (MTI) detections from city-sized urban areas at update rat ...

  9. STUDENT (SimulaTion and UnDerstanding of EveNts in Text)


    ABSTRACT: Although Natural Language Processing research has produced powerful techniques for parsing and data extraction, computers remain mostly oblivious to the meaning of the language they process. Computers cannot, in general, connect the words and phrases in language to a larger model of the world that permits reasoning about the implications of what is written or said. We propose an algor ...
