  1. Talaria- A Secure, Decentralized, Modular Transaction Architecture with an Unforgeable, Indelible, Transparent Ledger

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: SB162004

    Galois and Dan Boneh of Stanford offer Talaria, a research project and prototype architecture of a secure, decentralized messaging and transaction platform. Talaria addresses four concerns for such platforms: resilience, scalability, security, and transparency.Talaria uses a decentralized, redundant, and distributed server-side architecture to provide resiliency. Talaria provides scalability by us ...

  2. Large-format Low-false-alarm NIR SPAD Imager

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: SB162010

    To meet the U.S. military need for a near-single-photon low-light-level passive imager, a large-format, near-infrared (NIR)-sensitive silicon single-photon avalanche-diode (SPAD) digital imager capable of high-dynamic range, high detection efficiency, and low dark counts will be developed. Toward this end, in Phase I, a 256 x 256-element SPAD imager will be integrated into a camera, characterized, ...

  3. AUTONOMOUS DETECTION OF NEAR-SURFACE MARINE MAMMALS USING INTEGRATED ACTIVE SONAR AND ABOVE-WATER SENSORS

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: SB162015

    Scientific Solutions, Inc. (SSI), teamed with BAE Systems and Southall Environmental Associates, Inc. (SEA), proposes to investigate the feasibility of using hull-mounted active sonar integrated with above-water sensors, specifically radar and EOIR, to autonomously indentify and track marine mammals from transiting surface ships at ranges out to and beyond 1,000 yards. Active sonar, radar, and EO ...

  4. Real-time Enhanced Voice Authentication (REVA)

    SBC: Eduworks Corporation            Topic: SB163006

    Voice phishing (vishing) has become a serious threat. Attackers pose as trusted callers using impersonation, voice mimicry, speech synthesis, voice conversion technologies, and many other techniques. Once victims believes they are speaking with a t...

  5. Low Voltage Power Sources for Long-Life Electronics

    SBC: TALOSTECH LLC            Topic: SB163009

    There is a critical need for DoD to develop power sources that will increase the mission lifetime for unattended sensors and sensor radio networks. In order to take advantage of recent advances in extremely low power subthreshold circuits to greatly exte...

  6. GHz, Octavespanning Photodetectors for MWIR/LWIR

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: SB153002

    Exploitation of new chip-scale optical frequency comb sources demands improvements in the performance of MWIR/LWIR detectors. These detectors must meet the following specifications: High speed ( < 5 GHz), high-sensitivity (NEP < 1pW/Hz^1/2), broad spectral response (Octave), all at TEC operating temperatures. At present, no single detector exists that meet these demanding performance parameters. I ...

  7. High-Sample-Rate Analog-to-Digital Converters

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: SB153004

    Thanks to the availability of downscaled CMOS devices, analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) implemented in these faster CMOS technologies have achieved increasingly efficient conversion rates in the GS/s range. However, given the reduced linear dynamic range, these scaled CMOS technology nodes require extensive calibration to compensate for transistor mismatch and threshold-level variations. This n ...

  8. Conformal, Random Access Beam Steering for Broadband Systems

    SBC: ODHNER HOLOGRAPHICS            Topic: SB153005

    A large aperture achromatic holographic Risley prism equivalent system is proposed which provides conformal and fast scanning using ultra-light weight piezoelectric motors to achieve a large scan angle.The system is very efficient, simple and easily replicated.The central null issue normally associated with Risley prisms is eliminated with a 3rd weak achromatic displacement grating between the out ...

  9. Architecture Neutral Parallel Graph Algorithms with LPG

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: SB151004

    We propose to build a high-level Domain Specific Language (DSL) for graph processing. This DSL, Language For Processing Graphs (LPG), will be embedded in Python and can be compiled to multiple parallel architectures. By using a high-level architecturally-neutral DSL, we gain two things: (1) we can develop programs more quickly, and (2) our programs will not be tied to any specific parallel archi ...

  10. Functional Dataflow Programming Toolchain for Portable Parallel Code

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB151004

    A new class of high-performance, low-SWaP computational devices is emerging based on increasingly diverse architectures. This diversity is improving performance, but comes at the cost of increased programming complexity. Each architecture requires variances in programming environment and model, typically distinguished by the type of parallelism supported by the hardware, limiting software portabil ...
