  1. A Self-shielding Network Architecture Integrating Mutation Paradigms

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF093049

    ABSTRACT: The current static nature of systems and networks allows attackers to gather intelligence, perform planning, and then execute attacks at will. If instead we remove this underlying static nature and make the network dynamic, many classes of attacks can be prevented by making them too difficult to carry out without detection as well as by reducing their probability and level of success. ...

  2. High Performance Signal Processing Tools with Fluctuation-Enhanced Sensing

    SBC: Signal Processing, Inc.            Topic: 9020163R

    We propose a high performance library of signal processing tools that incorporate a newly developed technique known as fluctuation enhanced sensing (FES) to enhance the novel microsensor developed at NIST. Our goal is to improve the performance of the NIST sensor from two angles. One is to apply our existing proven algorithms to the NIST data. The other one is to incorporate advanced FES concept t ...

  3. Anion Exchange Resins for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 9060663R

    Single chirality of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is critical for their superb mechanical, thermal, optical and electronic properties. All known methods for producing nanotubes give mixtures of tubes with different chiralities. Physical separation of SWCNT by chirality is thus an enabling step for many potential applications and fundamental studies. The existing anion exchange resins are ...

  4. Enhanced Security Content Automation Protocol Editor

    SBC: G2, INC.            Topic: 9040577R

    G2 proposes to develop an intuitive, interactive SCAP content creation and editing utility that will provide a user-friendly operating environment. The promise of security automation offers the opportunity for great advances in software assurance, security governance/reporting, and ongoing monitoring activities. Hindering that promise is the fact that current data exchange protocols are cumbersome ...

  5. Nonintrusive Diagnostics for Off-Body Measurements in Flight Experiments

    SBC: INNOVATIVE TECH APPLICATIONS LLC            Topic: AF10BT07

    ABSTRACT: Flight tests of hypersonic maneuvering vehicles are a challenging but necessary endeavor. While ground tests and numerical simulations can provide important guidance regarding vehicle performance, they are both limited in their reach. Likewise surface-based measurements during flight tests provide valuable information, but do not provide sufficient insight into the complex flowfield t ...

  6. A Novel, Flexible, and Comprehensive System for Mission Prioritized Lossless Data Compression

    SBC: Signal Processing, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT10

    ABSTRACT: The test and evaluation (T & E) mission in complex test facilities results in large amounts of data. Moreover, the data may have different characteristics, including images from particle image velocimetry data, air flow data, etc. Finally, some of the data may come from a network of similar sensors. We propose a novel, flexible, and comprehensive system for mission prioritized lossless ...

  8. Scalable Aero-Load and Aero-Elasticity Solvers for Massively Parallel Heterogeneous Computing Architectures

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF10BT13

    ABSTRACT: We propose to apply modern massively multicore processors to a key problem area of interest to the Air Force: multiphysics computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and computational structural dynamics (CSD) solvers. The capabilities of the CPU to solve these problems have been increasing steadily, but the CPU is still a general-purpose device designed to run diverse applications such as word ...

  9. Policy Guided Isolation and Strategically Shielded Exposure: A Novel Approach to Secure Applications

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT18

    ABSTRACT: It is very challenging to secure applications in today"s networked computer system where applications inherently share various resources and information. In this proposal, we propose a novel approach, called policy guided isolation and strategically shielded exposure, to protect applications in network environments. Our approach combines virtualization techniques with a Policy Machine t ...

  10. Hybrid Energy Harvesting Systems

    SBC: MARITIME APPLIED PHYSICS CORPORATION            Topic: AF10BT22

    ABSTRACT: Efficiency of solar cells is typically low reaching on the order of 10% for commercially available cells. Furthermore, efficiency decreases by 0.5% for every degree increase in operating temperature. In order to increase the efficiency of the conversion of solar radiation per unit area to electricity it becomes advantageous to combine the solar cell with a thermal energy harvester. Acti ...
