  1. Network Sensing and Analytics for Low Bandwidth Cyber Protection Team (CPT) Deployment Scenarios

    SBC: Notos Technologies LLC            Topic: AF191065

    Many existing network intrusion detection systems (IDS) employ expensive deep packet inspection (DPI) andsophisticated pattern matching algorithms to spot evidence of known threats in the network traffic. WhileIDS are a valuable component of a defense-in-depth strategy, they often require significant compute power,tend to miss new (previously unknown) threats, run on heavy hardware, may require ac ...

  10. Nondestructive Inspection/Evaluation (NDI/E) Probe & Aircraft Structure Coordinate Mapping

    SBC: COMPASS TECHNOLOGY GROUP, LLC            Topic: AF183035

    Nondestructive evaluation and inspection (NDE/I) measurements are routinely performed on aircraft in the field and depot during maintenance and after repairs. Ensuring that these procedures have performed properly and completely, as well as enabling the efficient use and storage of the measurement data are critical to the sustainment mission. This effort addresses the US Air Forces need to map and ...
