  1. SWIFT ARROW STTR Phase 2

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: OSD12AU3

    In Dense Urban Environments (DUEs), a new and evolving battlefield, the ability to detect and respond quickly to multiple threats in complex environments (e.g., snipers on rooftops or in windows) is critical and is extremely important to both civilian and military tactical needs. Response latency in the critical moments after the beginning of an attack can significantly increase casualties. SWIFT ...

  2. Natural Rubber Production

    SBC: Edison Agrosciences, Inc.            Topic: ST18C001

    Natural rubber is an essential manufacturing material that possesses performance properties that are superior to synthetic rubber for many product applications. However, natural rubber production is limited to a single species (rubber tree) in a limited geographic area (Southeast Asia) and is predicted to be incapable of meeting future demand. Producing rubber from another commercial crop such as ...

  3. Design Tools for Hardware Trojan Detection and Mitigation

    SBC: BlueRISC Inc            Topic: SB173004

    With the increasing complexity of the modern semiconductor supply chain and increasing prevalence of the fabless manufacturing model, the hardware security and design integrity of integrated circuits are threatened by untrusted components such as hardware Trojans. BlueRISC proposes an automated toolkit that utilizes existing Design-For-Testability (DFT) structures (e.g. scan-chains) to enable the ...

  4. CrasHD: Semantics-Aware, Human-Assisted, Security-Critical Data Triage in COTS Application Crashes

    SBC: ZeroPoint Dynamics LLC            Topic: SB173003

    Over a decade ago, security practitioners highlighted threats posed by memory corruption exploits subverting systems through manipulation of security-critical non-control-datawithout ever corrupting application control-flow. Since that demonstration, however, the full power of data-oriented attacks went largely unnoticed until very recently. One reason for this recent emergence is that exploitatio ...

  5. Computer-Aided Design Tools for Three-Dimensional Circuit Integration

    SBC: R3LOGIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    R3 Logic proposes to develop an openly accessible Design Environment that will incorporate CAD tools needed for the analysis and design of 3D integrated circuits, including schematic capture, VHDL interfaces, 3D physical layout, verification, 3D parasiticextraction, interactive coupled electro-thermal simulations, and thermally-aware place and route methods. We will achieve this goal, first by bui ...

  6. PROCESSING ALGORITHMS FOR SENSORS FUSION IN VISIBLE/IR/RADAR

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF FUSING DATA OBTAINED SIMULTANEOUSLY FROM VISIBLE, INFRARED AND RADAR SENSORS, TO PROVIDE A HERETOFORE UNOBTAINABLE SURVEILLANCE CAPABILITY.THE DIFFICULTIES ASSOCAITED WITH SENSOR FUSION WHICH WILL BE ADDRESSEDINCLUDE THE DIFFERENT FIELDS OF VIEW, DIFFERENT MEASUREMENTS, DIFFERENT RESOLUTIONS, AND DIFFERENT POSITIONS AND VELOCITIES ...

  7. Regionally Adaptive Precision Tracking

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    While there have been a number of recent advances in track precision and maintenance via the AMSTE program, long-term track maintenance remains an elusive goal. Track breaks are primarily the result of miss-detections due to micro-obscuration from foliageand buildings and or due to the vehicle dropping below Minimum Detectable Velocity (MDV) because of parking or stopping at intersections and yiel ...

  8. Automatic Target Recognition from Motion Video

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a new automatic target recognition (ATR) system that operates on video data, exploiting the inherent redundancy and spatio-temporal coherence of motion imagery to create three-dimensional target signatures. Unlike previous approaches that useshape alone, our method will additionally model and predict object surface appearance properties, in the form of bi-directional reflectance distrib ...

  9. INSIGHT: Interpreting Network Structures to Obtain Intelligence on Groups of Hidden Terrorists

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Detecting and disrupting a terrorist network requires the ability to: link disparate (noisy, deceptive) data and recognize patterns in the underlying networks, estimate where further intelligence would be useful, and predict the network's response topossible attacks.We propose to combine state-of-the-art social network analysis (meta-networks) and statistical inferencing (probabilistic relational ...

  10. Distributed Tracking with Networked, Dynamically Relocatable Sensors

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Organic Air Vehicles have the potential to dramatically improve knowledge of the battlespace by providing persistent networked coverage which can dynamically adjust to changing conditions. These systems require novel algorithms which can address theproblems of positioning, sensor resource allocation, and tracking. Here we propose to define an architecture and create core algorithms which address ...
