  1. An Automated Test Bed for Assessing System-of-System (SoS) Assurance

    SBC: DeVivo AST, Inc.            Topic: 9040177R

    As System-of-Systems (SoS) become more complex, interactions and latent emergent behaviors become difficult to identify and control. Unmanned Autonomous Systems (UAS) are a prime example of SoS that are both critical and difficult to assure. Drawing upon prior work into multi-criteria decision making (MCDM), DeVivo AST has developed TOP Score, a software tool that facilitates the modeling and anal ...

  3. Development of a GPU-based High Performance Community Radiative Transfer Model

    SBC: Hyper Sensing, LLC            Topic: 835D

    Computation of the radiative transfer model for a hyperspectral sounder with thousands of spectral channels is very time-consuming. Consequently, operational data assimilation systems can assimilate only a few hundred channels. The radiative transfer model is very suitable for GPU implementation to take advantage of GPU massively parallel computing capability, where radiances at various channels c ...

  6. Highly-Scalable Computational Algorithms for Solving Aerostructural FSI Problems on Emerging Parallel Machine Architectures

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF10BT13

    ABSTRACT: Traditional multidisciplinary solvers function by solving the individual governing equations on computer clusters. In the case of aero-elastic Fluid-Structures Interaction (FSI) simulations, individual solvers have disparate requirements for optimal performance. CFD codes use iterative schemes and distributed memory, while CSD codes, use direct linear-solvers and utilize shared memory t ...

  10. Untrusted Data Inspection Capability

    SBC: Assured Information Security, Inc.            Topic: OSD10IA2

    Current processes for transporting electronic files across security domains limit the allowable file formats to a small, well-recognized set. The introduction of physical media into or out of secure areas requires manual analyses and multiple diagnostic scans. With the pace of innovation in information formats and the volume of data that is shared across such environments increasing every day, th ...
