  1. A Proactive Countermeasure to Harden Integrated Circuits Against Exploitation

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: OSD10IA1

    We propose to implement a novel countermeasure against the exploitation of integrated circuit hardware. The proposed countermeasure is applicable to both FPGAs and ASICs, increases design obfuscation and promises to block embedded hardware exploits. It also is fully compatible with virtually any other hardware exploit countermeasure and reduces forensic costs when exploits are suspected. The propo ...

  2. Low-cost Smear Reduction for Digital Displays

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF083238

    Motion blur or smear can limit the performance of digital display systems. Smear comes from two main display attributes – their non-zero response time and their finite hold time. The first effect causes the image from one frame to persist into the subsequent frame, while the second effect ensures that the image generated at the beginning of a frame of video is present up to the very end of t ...

  3. Frequency agile THz detectors for multiplicative mixing

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT26

    ABSTRACT: A system that operates at room temperature and that could scan for concealed weapons from standoff distances of >10 m would be a tremendous asset for US military homeland security personnel worldwide. THz imaging can, potentially, be used for this application, but it requires the development of a new class of THz detectors whereby the signal to noise ratios are improved significantly. ...

  6. Geometric Proximity of Independent Systems Simulation

    SBC: Cmsoft, Inc.            Topic: AF083268

    The pressing need for high-fidelity transient, nonlinear, viscous, fluid-structure simulations arises in the solution of many important engineering problems. These include not only the design of high-performance aircraft where flutter, limit cycle oscillation, and buffeting remain the most important considerations, but also new emerging applications such as the aeroelastic tailoring of front and r ...

  7. Development of Cascading Sensor Layer Network for Corrosion Monitoring in Multilayered Aircraft Components

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF083245

    Acellent Technologies, Inc. (Acellent) proposes to develop a reliable Cascading Sensor LAyer Network (CSLAN) based on Acellent’s SMART Layer® technology to detect and continuously monitor corrosion related damages. Multilayered metal structures in aircrafts are sometime subjected to very hostile environmental condition which are prone to develop stress corrosion cracks, pitting corrosion and ot ...

  10. Automated Data Transformations for Net-Centric Operations

    SBC: Fetch Technologies            Topic: AF083036

    In this project Fetch Technologies will implement and evaluate a new approach to transforming and normalizing data from multiple heterogeneous sources. In previous work, Fetch Technologies developed and successfully commercialized a system for creating “transformation pipelines”. In a transformation pipeline, a new source (with its own unique schema) can be “dropped” into the pipeline, ...
