  2. 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 ...

  3. Next-generation ad hoc networking through joint cognitive routing and spread-spectrum channelization

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: AF10BT09

    ABSTRACT: The primary objective of this STTR project is to develop a completely new approach to cognitive joint routing and spectrum allocation that will enable next-generation cognitive wireless networking between space, air, and ground USAF assets. The majority of cognitive radio network proposals rely on the notion of spectrum holes. This proposal will develop a system where cognitive users tr ...

  4. Dynamic Cross-layer Routing Using Cognitive Spectrum Allocation Techniques

    SBC: CRITICAL TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF10BT09

    ABSTRACT: The CTI/SU team proposes the Cyber Cross-Layer Optimization Publish-Subscribe (CYCLOPS) framework for design, prototyping and assessment of innovative methods for creating cognitive network architectures and protocols to achieve autonomous network resiliency in contested Radio Frequency spectra. Within this framework, the team will design metrics for estimating the benefits, costs and r ...

  5. Self-Reconfigurable Memristor-Based Computing Architecture: Design, Fabrication, and Characterization

    SBC: Bio Inspired Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: The behavior of the Chalcogenide based ion-conducting memristor lends itself for use as an element in a simple neuromorphic computing circuit. The reaction of a circuit to an external stimulus may be the result of its ability to learn from previous similar, yet unrelated exposures to environmental stimulus. A highly specialized variation of the memristor, previously developed by the Ad ...

  6. High frequency direction-finding system based on high-Tc Ion-Damaged Josephson Junction SQUID arrays

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: AF10BT40

    ABSTRACT: The overall goal of this project is to develop a small size, weight and power Direction Finding (DF) system based on SQUID array technology. High sensitivity, linearity, wide bandwidth of SQUID arrays antenna sensors will be enable close spacing of smaller antennas even for HF range. The SQUID arrays will be fabricated using high-temperature superconductor ion damaged Josephson junct ...

  8. Untrusted Data Inspection Capability

    SBC: Assured Information Security, Inc.            Topic: OSD10IA2

    Current processes for transporting electronic files across security domains limit the allowable file formats to a small, well-recognized set. The introduction of physical media into or out of secure areas requires manual analyses and multiple diagnostic scans. With the pace of innovation in information formats and the volume of data that is shared across such environments increasing every day, th ...

  10. 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 ...
