  1. Nanophase Technology for Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) Battery Safety

    SBC: Applied Colloids            Topic: OSD09EP1

    Many of the safety incidents that occur with lithium-ion batteries are due to the carbon anode currently in use. Incidents can occur that include overcharging in the system, which causes lithium metal to plate out of the cell and passivation at the surfaces of the electrodes in the cell, which can also cause an incident. Applied Colloids proposes the use of its proprietary nanomaterials in a "ro ...

  2. Organically Assured Routing System (OARS) for the Airborne Network

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF073019

    The Air Force has identified the need for an assured routing system for the Airborne Network (AN) that will protect the routing infrastructure from security attacks designed to disrupt the operation of the network. Subversion of the network routing function by attackers could be catastrophic for mission-critical applications running on the AN. This is because security attacks on the routing functi ...

  3. Border Gateway Protocol with Mobility Extensions (BGP-MX)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF081019

    The inter-domain routing protocol BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) was designed for statically configured land-based networks, which experience infrequent topology changes. As a result, BGP performs poorly in airborne network environment, where the topology of the networks is constantly changing because of domains mobility. Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) has, as part of its Phase I effort, ...

  4. Modeling & Simulation for Optimization of Heavy-Fuel Micro Rotary Engines

    SBC: BAKER ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This Phase II SBIR will develop and test a direct injected, heavy-fueled rotary engine based upon upgrading the existing engine (the AR74-1380) and utilizing analysis tools developed during Phase I. The program will provide the opportunity to continue research through modeling and simulation for optimization of heavy fuel micro rotary engines, and testing to provide model verification, all in sup ...

  5. Directed Energy Detection and Characterization Instrumentation

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: AF083253

    The increasing power, energy, and maturity of DE weapons systems has created an acute need for better measurement capabilities.  Systems designed to melt or disrupt electronics cannot be measured by many conventional methods, as they will destroy the diagnostic equipment along with their target.  To this end, Cybernet proposes the development of disposable HEL and HPM sensors which can provide a ...

  6. Autonomic Knowledge Representation Construction for Software Protection Systems

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: OSD09IA4

    Leveraging our current thrust of research into novel modes of computer, this project will focus on characterizing the state of the system using low-level descriptors abstracted with machine learning and processed to identify normal operation from varying levels of suspicious behavior. With this, we will be able to thwart novel attacks, providing a needed and novel security capability.

  7. The Design of Defensive Software Systems

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: OSD09IA3

    CML proposes to extend its current work in dynamic kernel monitoring for attack recognition and mitigation. The focus of this proposal is on mitigating the effects of an attack on executing software process by an individual user. The object of interest is the mapping of the activity of a user of a software system onto a model of their normal use of this software. In the construction of a mathe ...

  8. Method of Locating Unexploded Ordnance

    SBC: MAV6            Topic: AF083236

    The Unexploded Ordnance Asset RFID System (UARS) is an active low frequency RFID tracking system designed for locating unexploded ordinance (UXO) on the battlefield.  The system is a passive thin collar RFID tag that is placed onto the munition during manufacture and becomes activated after delivery on target.  Once activated, the RFID tag enters a passive listening mode, waiting for a specific ...

  9. Verified and Validated Software for Three-dimensional (3-D) Fatigue Crack Growth and Stable Crack Extension

    SBC: Correlated Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF083175

    Development of a software tool capable of predicting crack growth in structures with complex geometries for accurate structural life predictions and residual strength assessment is proposed. The custom crack growth simulation tool, CRACK3D, will be used as the basic code for further development and implementation. First, further enhancement of the CRACK3D module for computational geometry and topo ...

  10. New Ceramic Laser Hosts for High Power Lasers

    SBC: NANOCEROX, INC..            Topic: AF083076

    This program seeks to develop ytterbium doped rare earth sesquioxides including yttria, scandia, lutetia, and gadolinia-based oxides as laser gain media for use in high power thin disk lasers.  The increased thermal conductivity, increased absorption cross section at pump wavelengths, small quantum defect in Yb lasing systems, and high performance demonstrated in such media are attractive.  Proc ...
