  1. Infrared Metamaterials for Emission Phase Control

    SBC: Plasmonics Inc.            Topic: AF10BT30

    ABSTRACT: Under the first phase of the program, Plasmonics Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories investigated a range of surfaces that yield non-Lambertian emission profiles in the thermal infrared. The second phase of this program will further maturate the designs developed in the first phase of the program. With the vast majority of the analytical work complete, focus in the second phase will b ...

  2. Highly-Scalable Computational-Based Engineering Algorithms for Emerging Parallel Machine Architectures

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF10BT13

    ABSTRACT: RNET and The Ohio State University propose to use algorithmic modifications and multi-level parallelization techniques and tools to improve the scalability of the aero-line/aero-elastic coupled CFD/CSD codes relevant to the DoD/AF (e.g., CREATE/Kestrel). The optimizations will address inter-node and intra-node parallelization to better target emerging compute architectures (e.g., multi ...

  3. SWIR Image Sensor Based on SiGe Nanomembranes

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF10BT14

    ABSTRACT: Agiltron and the University of WisconsinMadison will develop the first SWIR Image Sensor with a flexible FPA. The sensor is based on the integration of single-crystal Si and Ge nanomembranes, which has the potential to achieve defect-free Ge-based photodiodes for SWIR imaging while eliminating the need for an epitaxial step. In Phase I, we have successfully demonstrated Ge-based PIN pho ...

  4. Semi-Supervised Algorithms against Malware Evolution (SESAME)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT21

    ABSTRACT: Recent years have seen an explosion in the number and sophistication of malware attacks. The sheer volume of novel malware has made purely manual signature development impractical and has led to research on applying machine learning and data mining to automatically infer malware signatures in the wild. Unfortunately, researchers have recently found ways to game the machine learning algo ...

  5. Nublu: Assured Information Sharing in Clouds

    SBC: Modus Operandi, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT30

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop an assured information sharing framework for cloud-based systems that leverages our ongoing work in the areas of policy-based usage management and semantic interoperability. The development of this framework will involve the creation of a novel approach to information sharing that treats security as a commodity that can be dynamically provisioned within the cloud, ...

  6. Operating System Mechanisms for Many-Core Systems

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: OSD11T04

    In the Phase I portion of this STTR, Securboration and renowned multicore expert Dr. Frank Mueller from North Carolina State University designed, developed, and benchmarked the proof-of-concept Pico-kernel Adaptive and Scalable Operating-system (PICASO) for many-core architectures. The Securboration Team took a scientific, experimentation-based approach to identifying and resolving shortcomings wi ...

  7. Design and Analysis of Multi-core Software

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: OSD11T03

    Modern processor design is trending increasingly toward multicore architectures. This is problematic for programmers because writing a correct parallel program is known to be difficult compared to writing the equivalent sequential program. Additionally, a wide body of sequential code has already been developed that cannot exploit the power offered by these new cores because it was written in a s ...

  8. Autonomic Performance Assurance for Multi-Processor Supervisory Control

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: OSD11T01

    Multi-processor computing systems are growing in capacity and usage. They encompass multiple, distributed implementations as well as heterogeneous, embedded computing architectures. The processing density enabled by such approaches holds promise for unmanned combat air vehicles (UCAVs) with their plethora of mission sensors and command and control processing requirements. However, the software ...

  9. System for Information and Meta-information Portrayal of Lessons-learned (SIMPL)

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF08T002

    Availability of massive amounts of information afforded by net-centric operations poses a challenge for identifying information relevant for effective decision-making. Complex domains, such as Operational Assessment, require the ability to access and analyze relevant information to support mission objectives. However, access to large amounts of information can cause overload and thereby hinder ide ...

  10. III-V Based Focal Plane Arrays for Video-Rate Terahertz Imaging

    SBC: TRAYCER DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T006

    Owing to a unique set of intellectual property and core expertise, this Phase II team, led by Traycer Diagnostic Systems, will build and characterize a packaged, 16x16 terahertz focal plane array (FPA) for broadband video-rate imaging at frequencies up to 1.3 THz. Traycer’s competitive advantage is based on its record-performing detectors, novel antennas, and array architectures that permit a d ...
