  1. Botnet Analytics Appliance (BNA)

    SBC: MILCORD LLC            Topic: N/A

    As reported by Internet security threat reports, Bot networks are becoming the focal point for cybercriminals. Milcord and the University of Wisconsin, responds to this challenge with our proposal ¿ a ¿Bayesian Activity Monitor for Botnet Defense¿ (BAM-BD). In this proposal, we will research, design, and develop a botnet detection and mitigation tool that automatically classifies botnet behavio ...

  2. Botnet Analytics Appliance (BNA)

    SBC: MILCORD LLC            Topic: HSB061008

    Recent reports indicate the activity of more than 6,000 botnet C and C servers. 70 million zombies are responsible for 80 percent of SPAM. Given the exponential growth of the botnet threat, the security of our nation s cyber infrastructure demand automated botnet activity monitoring solutions. In Phase I, Milcord developed a feasibility prototype of a Bayesian Activity Monitor for Botnet Defense. ...

  3. Adaptive camera to display mappings using computer vision

    SBC: POLAR RAIN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The video surveillance industry is experiencing dramatic change with the move from analog to digital video. Command centers need to have coordinated viewing of multiple camera feeds at one time, and the ability to switch automatically between feeds and display relevant patterns. Conventional security control rooms include a bank of monitors connected through a switch to an array of security camera ...

  4. MK III Upper Extremity Exoskeleton

    SBC: Ekso Bionics Inc            Topic: 739552

    As the carry and protective gear of the modern war fighter increases, the burden on the human body will necessarily increase. In our present TALOS MkIII project, we are developing lower body augmentation to preserve speed and agility while bearing this weight. Yet we cannot ignore the impact of this weight on the upper body: in this project we propose to develop an upper body exoskeleton with p ...

  5. TALOS User Experience

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: A13068

    With the advanced capabilities planned by the TALOS program comes the risk of the operator becoming overwhelmed by the information available and the operation of the suit itself. To effectively employ the suit in the field, TALOS requires an effective situational awareness display and an intuitive, low-impact way of interacting with the suits physical/sensor systems. SoarTech proposes to continue ...

  6. Data Driven Intent Recognition Framework

    SBC: Other Lab Inc.            Topic: NSF13599

    A critical aspect of exoskeleton control that has to date introduced a performance limitation is the ability of the exoskeleton to recognize the intent of the operator so it can apply assistance to their desired motion. This intent recognition effort is typically solved using ad-hoc methods where subject matter experts make design decisions and tune transitions to identify intended maneuvers as re ...

  7. Development of Advanced Military Prosthetic Shoulder System

    SBC: Sarcos Group LC            Topic: A05161

    A new dual pump hydraulic supply designed to enable energetically autonomous exoskeleton robots will be developed, tested and demonstrated. This new hydraulic supply will be integrated with a high performance hydraulically actuated full body exoskeleton robot and used to test and demonstrate the overall performances of such systems. New control policies that include: (i) an assist mode, where the ...

  8. Human Performance Optimization: Ketone Esters for Optimization of Operator Performance in Hypoxia

    SBC: HVMN Inc.            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    In the setting of altitude-induced hypoxia, operator cognitive capacity degrades and can compromise both individual and team performance. This degradation is linked to falling brain energy (ATP) levels and an increased reliance on anaerobic energy production from glucose. Ketone bodies are the evolutionary alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies have sho ...

  9. Human Performance Optimization

    SBC: REJUVENATE BIO INC            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    Special Operations Forces (SOF) are an integral aspect of the US military. SOF operators are among the most elite and highly qualified individuals in the U.S. military. As such, extraordinary physical and mental demands are placed upon them to excel in extreme environments for extended periods of time. This unrelenting cycle of combat deployments and intense pre-deployment training shortens the fu ...

  10. System for Nighttime and Low-Light Face Recognition

    SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC            Topic: SOCOM18A001

    Face recognition performance using deep learning has seen dramatic improvements in recent years. This improvement has been fueled in part by the curation of large labeled training datasets with millions of images of hundreds of thousands of subjects.This results in effective generalization for matching over pose, illumination, expression and age variation, however these datasets have traditionally ...
