  1. Next Gen Optical Modem for SmallSat High Data Rate Optical Communications

    SBC: FIBERTEK, INC.            Topic: AF182066

    Fibertek proposes to develop a space qualifiable, small, optical modem board to support interoperable, encoding and decoding for free-space optical communications links. Space is a contested environment where traditional RF communications are susceptible to being jammed and intercepted. Optical communications offer a resilient solution, and its inclusion on SmallSats and in constellations is an Ai ...

  2. Provably Unclonable Functions on Re-configurable Devices

    SBC: Potomac Research LLC            Topic: A18BT001

    Physically UnclonableFunctions (PUFs) have been proposed as central building blocks in cryptographic protocols and security architectures. PUFs are physical devices that exhibit a challenge/responsebehavior: when presented with a challenge, the device produces a response that is a random function of both the challenge and the physical properties of the device.In contrast to most digital designs, i ...
