  2. Framework for Assessing Cloud Trustworthiness (FACT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF112031

    ABSTRACT: When Air Force applications or data reside in a third-party"gray"cloud, trustworthiness can be compromised due to lack of control over the underlying infrastructure. The user must treat the cloud as a black box that cannot be instrumented or modified. To support verifiable access to applications and data residing in gray cloud infrastructures, we will develop a framework that treats the ...

  4. 20 Gigahertz (GHz) Radiation Hardened Solid State Power Amplifier (SSPA) for Satellite Communications (SATCOM) Downlinks

    SBC: Auriga Measurement Systems LLC            Topic: AF112150

    ABSTRACT: Auriga will complete the development of an innovative linearized K-band High Power Amplifier (HPA) in 24 months with one additional month for the final report. This innovative approach is expected to bring revolutionary performance (close to 40% PAE under QPSK). Auriga"s HPA will have a linearizer integrated in the MMIC and packaged, requiring no other interface or digital chips to acco ...
