  1. AutoConfig Router: Policy-based Auto-configuring Routers to Support Dynamically Forming Networks

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF103044

    ABSTRACT: The future Airborne Network (AN) will include airborne nodes on wide body platforms that will perform internet working between heterogeneous networks operating with various protocols and communication link technologies. These nodes will have the capabilities to form the backbone routing structure of the AN. In such an environment, the topology and link statuses will dynamically change o ...

  2. Context Aware Scalable Dynamic Network (CASDN)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF103070

    ABSTRACT: Current air, ground and space networks are very dynamic with large-scale mobility needing human in-the-loop configuration to adapt to unforeseen situations. Humans and current automated systems cannot reconfigure consistently or fast enough. This leads to network performance not meeting mission needs. Airborne, space and ground networks are very dynamic, complex, and hard for the cur ...

  3. FAIL-SAFE FAULT-TOLERANT ELECTRONICS

    SBC: Daina            Topic: N/A

    FUTURE MILITARY AVIONICS SYSTEMS WILL REQUIRE AT LEAST AN ORDER OF MAGNITUDE IMPROVEMENT IN MEAN TIME BETWEEN CRITICAL FAILURES. TO ACHIEVE THIS GOAL INNOVATIVE FAIL-SAFE FAULT-TOLERANT ELECTRONIC SYSTEM DESIGN CONCEPTS WILL BE NEEDED. THE APPROACH PROPOSED BY DAINA WILL BE BASED ON THE USE OF EXTERNAL ENVIRONMENT DATA, BUILT-IN RELIABILITY MODEL, ADAPTIVE STATISTICAL SYSTEM STATE AND PARAMETER ES ...

  4. High Performance, Ultra Low Power SPA-1 ASIC for Space Plug-and-Play Avionics

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF093082

    ABSTRACT: The Space Plug-and-play Avionics (SPA) initiative is designed to improve the ability of the US military to respond to rapidly changing operational needs by creating, integrating, and launching a new spacecraft in less than one week. This would provide major benefits to war fighters on the ground, in the sky, and at sea. SPA-1 ASICs using I2C as the transport interface will likely be t ...

  5. Hybrid Autonomous Router for Tactical (HART) Networks

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: OSD10AN2

    The DoD has identified the need for airborne platforms from the various services to be integrated into the Global Information Grid (GIG). The current state of the practice for connecting airborne platforms to the GIG has four major limitations, i.e., (1) inability to adapt dynamically to topology changes in the network; (2) need for excessive manual configuration; (3) lack of scalalability with ne ...

  6. Improved Data&Power Transmission: Conductor&Shielding

    SBC: MINNESOTA WIRE & CABLE COMPANY            Topic: AF103204

    Carbon nanotubes form conductive composites at such low loading ratios and thus could be a key component in EMI shielding and conductors for lightweight aircraft wiring. Compared to conventional metal-based materials, electrically conducting polymer composites has attracted interest due to their light weight, resistance to corrosion, flexibility, and processing advantages. Minnesota Defense propos ...

  7. Massively Parallel High Temperature Probe System for Wafer-level Reliability Testing

    SBC: Celadon Systems Inc.            Topic: 910021R

    Historical methods of reliability assessment are less and less effective as device sizes shrink. Larger sample sizes and longer duration tests are increasingly needed. At the same time, efforts to continue scaling semiconductors to ever smaller geometries is leading to an explosion of new device structures, materials and processes. The cost of testing these innovations is becoming a major barrier ...

  8. MULTIPLE LASER MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

    SBC: Apeiron Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE KEY PROBLEM TO BE ADDRESSED IN PHASE I OF THIS PROJECT WILL BE TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF A NOVEL POSITION MEASURING SYSTEM FOR A FAMILY OF COMPUTER CONTROLLED MACHINE TOOLS. THE MULTIPLE LASER MEASUREMENT SYSTEM (MLMS), WHICH FORMS THE BASIS OF THIS PROPOSAL, WILL MEASURE THE (X, Y, Z) POSITION OF THE CUTTING HEAD DIRECTLY AT RATES AND ACCURACIES SUFFICIENT FOR CLOSED LOOP POSITION CONTR ...

  9. New Intrusion-Resistant Virtualized Adaptive Network Architecture (NIRVANA)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF103058

    ABSTRACT: With increased connectivity and integration with other DoD networks the threat of cyber attacks on space operations assets has become significant. Hence, the Air Force has identified a need to protect satellite operations centers (SOCs) from cyber attacks for mission assurance. Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) proposes to develop an intrusion-resistant network architecture ...

  10. Onboard Flight Digital Data Recorder for Measuring the Shock and Vibration Environment Associated with the Dispense and Flight of Missile Submunitions

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF99325

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force Flight Test Center (AFFTC) is interested in upgrading their test aircraft fleet (or a portion thereof) to have onboard smart sensors (OSS). The target SBIR product for this project is a set of hardware components that allows the integration of IEEE 1451.4 Smart Sensors into the Common Airborne Instrumentation System (CAIS) which is the most common data acquisition system c ...
