  1. Self-Shielding Systems and Attack-Surface Mutation

    SBC: 3 Sigma Research, Inc.            Topic: AF093049

    3 Sigma Research investigates an advanced concept, called the Mutating Attack-Surface Investigation (MASI), to increase network protection by continuously modifying and dynamically mutating the network profile. This approach addresses the attacker’s tactic of network mapping and the assumption of a static network target. The architecture implementation uses virtual machine hypervisor technology ...

  2. Automate Ontological Representation of security classification guides

    SBC: 3 Sigma Research, Inc.            Topic: AF083037

    3 Sigma Research proposes to develop and implement an innovative prototype and demonstrate a suite of tools to assist with the automated creation of security classification guides and application of the guide in classifying information. Building on the research from the Phase I Ontology-based Security Classification Guide Investigation (OSCG-I), the prototype will show that a robust and accurate ...

  3. Coupled Cluster Methods for Multi-Reference Applications

    SBC: ACES QC, LC            Topic: AF09BT40

    The objective of Phase I is to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the various multi-reference coupled-cluster (MRCC) methods that have been proposed for the description of molecular states depending upon near degeneracies and non-dynamic electron correlation. Such effects are encountered in bond breaking, at transition states, for complex open shell systems like transition metal atoms, and f ...

  4. Visualization for Command and Control of Cyberspace Operations

    SBC: VISITREND            Topic: AF083022

    Cyberspace superiority is a prerequisite for effective operations in all other warfighting domains. To maintain cyberspace superiority, there is a need for effective Command and Control (C2) tools to observe, plan, and execute cyber operations. Visualization is a key enabler of C2 but new approaches are required to address cyber security data sets. A principal challenge is the complexity of this d ...

  5. Aerosol Plasmon-Enhanced Laser Desorption Ionization

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT34

    Aerodyne Research, Inc. (ARI) and The University of Massachusetts at Amherst will collaborate to develop a novel technique for efficient mass spectrometric analysis of high molecular weight analytes such as proteins and polymers. Laser desorption and ionization with minimal analyte fragmentaton will be carried out on metal nanoparticle substrates in a particle beam sampled by Aerodyne’s proprie ...

  6. Compact Type 1 Space Encryption Hardware

    SBC: Aeronix, Inc.            Topic: AF093086

    Historically, military strategic satellite systems have been large in physical size and designed for lifetimes of up 10 years or more. To prevent unauthorized access to these systems their communication links are typically protected by Communications security (COMSEC) equipment. These box level security components are referred to as encryption control units (ECUs) or End Crypto Units (ECUs). Even ...

  7. Development and Packaging of Radiation Immune Nano-Diamond Integrated Circuits for Advanced Interceptor Avionics

    SBC: AET, Inc.            Topic: MDA09006

    The goal of this program is to develop nanosacle electronics and packaging technology that is hardened to space and nuclear radiation. Vanderbilt will assist AET in the development of packaging technologies for lateral emission-based diamond devices characterized for temperature insensitivity and radiation hardness. A laterally configured diamond emission device can offer significant advantages ...

  8. Rapid Radiation Hardened Prototyping of Obsolescent Military Satellite Microelectronics

    SBC: AET, Inc.            Topic: AF093081

    In this program AET, Inc. will perform research and development with the objective of developing the capability to rapidly fabricate substitutes of radiation hardened microcircuits for use in future military satellites that may become obsolete during the acquisition cycle. The object is to develop a methodology for rapid prototyping of these obsolescent radiation hardened military microelectronic ...

  9. Uncooled Photomechanical Terahertz Imagers

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF09BT33

    Agiltron and the University of Massachusetts Lowell will develop a transformational terahertz (THz) imager based on Agiltron’s established optical readout photomechanical imaging technology. The photomechanical imager contains a MEMS-based focal plane array that transduces THz radiation into a visible signal for capture by a high-performance CCD imager. By leveraging the advances made in the fie ...

  10. High Optical Power Fiberoptic Components for 2 µm Fiber Laser

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF093158

    The proposed innovative in-fiber beam expansion technology and the all inorganic micro-optic fiberoptic device designs intrinsically have advantages in power handling, speed, insertion loss, reliability, and potentially cost as compared with other approaches. Our approaches overcome all the major hurdles in high power 2m fiberoptic device fabrications without trading-off of optical performance ...
