  1. Unikernel Isolation for Secure SCADA

    SBC: NanoVMs, Inc.            Topic: 01b

    SCADA and ICS systems compose large parts of critical infrastructure. In particular power systems settings are trivial to find and maliciously alter. There are many problems such as using outdated protocols such as MODBUS and connecting end systems directly to the internet so they may be found on vulnerability search engines such as Shodan, however, one of the larger issues is the outdated notion ...

  5. Self-Sensing Self-Sustaining Carbon Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (S4CFRP) Composites for Next-Generation Vehicles

    SBC: NEWPORT SENSORS INC            Topic: 12d

    Carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites offers the greatest potential for weight reduction in automotive vehicles, resulting in improved fuel efficiency and lowered CO2 emission. However, a major obstacle to broad commercial deployment is the high- cost and insufficient inspection of invisible damage. CFRP composites are susceptible to impact damage, resulting in significant loss of stre ...

  9. Ultra-portable X-ray source for field radiography

    SBC: RadiaBeam Systems, LLC            Topic: 02b

    High-energy X-ray sources are used in many security, industrial and medical applications. Particle accelerators represent a safer and much more flexible X-ray sources than radioisotopes. However, in order to be considered as a suitable replacement, the accelerator must have comparable weight, cost and dimensions. For example, in security applications such as field radiography and mobile cargo scan ...
