  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. 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 ...

  3. Exploiting Raster Maps for Imagery Analysis

    SBC: Geosemble Technologies            Topic: AF06T004

    Maps are an incredibly rich source of information, but the information contained in a map is often locked up in a raster image. Sometimes the original source data used to create the map is available, but more often than not this information has either been lost or is not available. In the proposed project, we propose to develop the technology that will make it possible to exploit the huge number ...

  4. Coaxial High Energy Thruster for Rapid Maneuvering of Space Assets

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF06T001

    Busek Co. Inc. and Stanford University propose to jointly develop and test a high power plasma propulsion concept called the Coaxial High EnerGy (CHENG) thruster. This high efficiency (> 85%) pulsed system will be capable of average thrust levels commensurate to chemical propulsion (10^4 N/m^2), but with an Isp comparable to electrostatic propulsion (4000-50,000 s). Both thrust and Isp will be va ...

  5. A High Current Microfabricated Carbon Nanotube Field Emitter Array with Ballasting

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF06T018

    High current density carbon nanotube-based field emission arrays with uniform emission will be developed under this program. Working in conjunction with MIT, microfabrication techniques will be used to produce high density arrays of CNT emitters on substrates which incorporate feedback to ensure uniformity of emission between emitters. The feedback techniques employed will minimize thermal effec ...

  6. Hearing Protection for High-Noise Environments

    SBC: MONOPOLE RESEARCH            Topic: AF06T035

    We propose to develop high-fidelity numerical simulation tools to be used in the analysis and assessment of bone conduction of sound in the human head and the desigh of noise protection devices. The proposed approach utilizes boundary and volumetric integral equation methods, and will constitute an extension of our currently developed approach from acoustics to coupled elasticity-theory and acou ...

  7. Commercial Methods for Production of Orientation Patterned GaAs

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF06T010

    The Air Force desires development of a commercial production source for nonlinear optical (NLO) gallium arsenide semiconductor crystals with orientation patterning, i.e., OP-GaAs. The need for these materials is driven primarily by applications for NLO laser frequency converters in Infrared Counter Measures (IRCM). The proposed Phase I project will demonstrate feasibility for a fabrication metho ...

  8. Combustion Stability Innovations for Liquid Rocket

    SBC: Science and Technology Applications, LLC            Topic: AF06T005

    Combustion instability in liquid rocket engines (LREs) has manifested in nearly all LRE development programs. While the driving mechanisms of combustion instability are vast and coupled, in all instances, the net result is significant cost and schedule over-runs. In today’s business environment, such over-runs are rarely tolerated and generally result in program cancellations. Development of hig ...

  9. Environmentally-Benign Oxidizers for Propulsion

    SBC: Science and Technology Applications, LLC            Topic: AF06T007

    Ammonium perchlorate (AP) is the most commonly used oxidizing ingredient in solid propellant formulations. It carries a sufficient excess of oxygen to allow for the combustion of the required binder and added metal, such as aluminum. The major drawback of AP is its chlorine content which results in the formation of large amounts of HCl as a combustion product and causes severe environmental proble ...

  10. High resolution multispectral imaging with plasmon lensing

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: AF06T006

    It is desirable to make high resolution imagers that simultaneously acquire multispectral information from the same spatial locations; doing so enables a number of target detection and tracking applications. Currently, image resolution is limited by the pixel pitch which cannot be reduced below optical diffraction and carrier diffusion limited values, and by the need to have different pixels resp ...
