  2. Multispectral Desert Fauna Surveillance and Recognition System

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: AF093222

    We propose the creation and deployment of an automated machine vision based sensor, tracking, and identification system for monitoring wildlife in support of managing natural resources. However, far more is needed beyond basic tracking. Our proposed solution is twofold – software and hardware. The software solution is to develop an architecture consisting of • Multiple networked cameras (wi ...

  3. Enabling End User Computing Environments

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: AF093038

    The High Assurance Platform Workstation (HAPWS) offers affordable and easy-to-manage multi-level and cross-domain capabilities to end-users in a desktop or console form-factor. It allows the end-user to have multiple windows of entire operating systems running in different security domains. The HAPWS will keep pace with most technology advancements with low re-certification effort. HP and Dell ...

  4. Automatic Artificial Diversity for Virtual Machines

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: AF093053

    Large scale adoption of homogeneous computing environments presents serious risk of automated attacks due to the unified nature of the computing environments. Botnet and computer virus attacks are successful due to widespread unification of computing systems, presenting a uniform attack surface so an attack devised for one machine can be replicated to millions of machines. A method available in co ...

  5. Non-Intrusive Direct Part Marking

    SBC: CLARK-MXR, INC.            Topic: AF093191

    DoD policy requires a 2-dimensional data matrix machine-readable, item unique identification (IUID) as defined in MIL-STD-130 on expensive and critical aircraft components such as jet engine parts. Laser marking is ideal because it requires no special fixture, it can be done from an angle on complex surfaces, the size of the mark can be adjusted to fit the available space, and the beam doesn’t w ...

  6. Failure Initiation Predictors for Reliability-Based Design of Hybrid Composite Materials

    SBC: Comet Technology Corporation            Topic: AF08T025

    ABSTRACT: This proposal is concerned with the development of a novel failure initiation and progressive failure analysis modeling method for advanced composite structures, including the analysis of selected structural joints utilizing a statistically based micromechanics model embedded in a 3D non-linear finite element code. The method accounts for the interaction between out-of-plane failure and ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Novel Tools for Augmentor Ignition Modeling and Analysis

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF093165

    Reliable ignition is critical to the operational performance of augmented military jet engines. Augmentors must reliably ignite when thrust is needed or the system (and pilot) safety could be compromised. Augmentor ignition is particularly challenging because the igniter must function over a range of operating conditions. In particular, high-altitude, low-pressure conditions are known to confou ...

  9. Small Hole Measurement System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF093121

    The efficient, effective measurement of small drilled holes continues to be a challenge for key aerospace applications. While manufacturing methods for fabricating holes have improved significantly over the last ten years, measurement and metrology methods have not advanced at the same pace. Modern jet engine parts may contain tens of thousands of holes along with the requirement that the aggreg ...

  10. Improving the Performance of High Temperature Power Electronic Devices

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF093170

    Power conversion Line Replaceable Units (LRUs) used on advanced tactical aircraft use liquid cooling and complex packaging geometries to provide adequate thermal management. Typical LRUs could have cooling loops operating at 70 deg C inlet temperatures, enclosures which dissipate hundreds of watts of electrical power, and which have silicon based semiconductors rated for operation at a maximum te ...
