  1. A Compact, Multimode LADAR For Target Identification Based Upon Joint Optimization of Optical and Computational Resources

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF083149

    Bridger Photonics proposes to prove the feasibility of an innovative method for multi-mode target identification. To achieve this system, the team will combine the most advanced ultra-high-resolution FM-CW LADAR unit in existence with state-of-the-art feature-specific computational imaging concepts. This marriage will enable the team to identify and realize the truly optimal solution to the Air ...

  4. Active Defense Against Code Injection Attacks

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: OSD09IA1

    The threat posed by remote cyber attacks has grown every year, with nation state attacks being the hardest to detect and blunt. A common cyber attack method against remote systems is the code injection attack, where the attacker finds flaws in a remote application then forces the application to execute injected code. Code injection attacks can give the attacker unlimited access to the attacked sys ...

  5. Advanced Development for Defense Science and Technology

    SBC: Jonathan Aerospace Materials Corporation            Topic: SB082007

    Lattice Block Materials, or LBM for short, are a class of materials comprised of an open structure of ligaments arranged in a regular truss like structure that is three dimensional. A basic unit cell is comprised of a square based pyramid skeleton (just the corners, called nodes, and the edges, called ligaments). These cells are connected in all directions to form a larger lattice like structure ...

  6. Advanced Third Generation Midwave Sensor Control Architecture

    SBC: SIGHTLINE APPLICATIONS, LLC            Topic: AF083262

    Night vision sensors have become ubiquitous in military, security, and commercial systems. Motivated by the growing body of evidence that suggests  that existing midwave sensors are not configured to produce optimal image contrast over a wide range of operating temperatures and dynamic ranges, a research and development project is proposed. This project will result in the careful characterization ...

  7. Automated Wide-Area Network Configuration from High-Level Specifications

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: ST061002

    Wide-area networks are essential to productivity in commercial enterprises and military organizations. Reliability is difficult to achieve because wide-area networks, such as the Internet, are built from many autonomously configured component networks. Today there exists a large gap between the intended design of a network and the implementation of that design. This is because complex network poli ...

  8. Compact High Power Microwave Payloads

    SBC: LOKI INC            Topic: MDA08047

    The objective of the proposed research and development work is to create new types of compact, autonomous explosive-driven high-power microwave (HPM) systems based on the magnetic flux compression generator (FCG). There will be no moving parts (to include armatures) in these devices; the systems will be completely solid-state units. They will include all components necessary for operation: a comp ...

  9. Compact, Lightweight Magnetic Sensor for Small Unmanned Undersea Vehicles (UUV)

    SBC: SKY RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N08218

    Sky Research, Inc. and Geometrics, Inc. propose to develop a sensor system that can be efficiently integrated into various versions of the Navy MK 18 MOD 1 Swordfish and Remote Environmental Measurement UnitS (REMUS)-100 in-service Unmanned Underwater Vehicles using extremely small, very low power total field magnetic sensors. To meet the needs of the U.S. Navy, the system will be designed to corr ...

  10. Corrosion and Fatigue Degradation Analysis and Forecasting System

    SBC: POSITRON SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF083225

    Corrosion is becoming an increasing problem in the Air Forces aging fleet. Corrosion is developing in airframes in inaccessible areas never intended for disassembly.  This potentially leads to premature failure due to fatigue or significant reduction of material integrity. Mitigation efforts are proving to be costly and time consuming. A methodology to locate and evaluate hidden corrosion in-situ ...
