  1. Proactive Methodology for Identifying Problem Aerospace Parts

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF112208

    ABSTRACT: The proposed solution would provide the United States Air Force (USAF) a thin client application for proactively identifying problem parts. Our solution is dependant on a digital Bill of Materials (BOM) which we also provide a tool for importing and loading the cleansed parts structure from the data cleansing teams. Our solution was able to predict part failure rates at 70% during testi ...

  2. Adaptive Defense using Linguistic Inference of Behaviors (AD-LIB)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD11IA2

    The objective of the proposed project is to develop technology that infers the intent and strategy of malware. This technology can then be used in conjunction with decoys and honeytokens to gather detailed information on malware intent and strategy, which will reveal valuable intelligence concerning the adversary and insights into the best defensive strategies. The proposed effort will focus on ...

  3. ADIDRUS: Using Deception to Protect and Defend UAVs

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: OSD11IA2

    Unmanned vehicles are becoming an increasingly valuable tool within the Department of Defense, and related technologies are beginning to appear in commercial systems. As their utilization grows, these unmanned systems will become a significant target for cyber attack. Indeed, existing Defense Department unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have already been subjected to attack by various adversaries. ...

  4. Intelligent Course of Action Learning System (iCOALS)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF121004

    ABSTRACT: SSCI proposes creation of an Intelligent Course of Action Learning System (iCOALS), building on extensive past experience in learning advanced fighter combat maneuvers from simulation. By learning from repeated simulations, robust strategies can be constructed that allocate a complete action repertoire (including the mission-specific, limited range of weapons, countermeasures, associate ...

  5. Double-Probe & Topside-Ionosphere-Sounder DPTIS

    SBC: Lowell Digisonde International, LLC            Topic: AF121064

    ABSTRACT: It is proposed to build the breadboard functional proof unit of a new space borne instrument DPTIS (Double-Probe & Topside Ionosphere Sounder) that simultaneously measures in situ electric fields and the vertical electron density profiles from the spacecraft altitude to the F2 layer peak. The instrument is designed for a small satellite and integrates an RF Topside-Ionosphere-Sounder (T ...

  6. Fiber Optic Amplifier Pump Combiners with Signal Feed Throughput

    SBC: SUB-MICRON ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: AF131011

    ABSTRACT: For this SBIR topic, we have proposed a novel high-power optical fiber pump combiner design that addresses the specific challenges associated with counter-pumping large-mode-area (LMA) double-clad gain fibers. Based on modeling and design optimization, we will fabricate kilowatt capable power combiner prototypes for pump coupling to double-clad Yb-doped polarization-maintaining (PM) fi ...

  7. Target Rotation and Aimpoint Correction using Enhanced Reconstruction (TRACER)

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: AF131014

    ABSTRACT: Laser weapon systems on tactical airborne platforms face many issues with tracking targets and pointing of the laser weapon. Even in an environment free from the effects of the atmosphere, there is still the issue of pointing the laser weapon to a specific hit point when there are no features in the required direction. Even if there are features in the desired hit point direction, it ...

  8. Security in Cyber-Physical Networked Systems

    SBC: RAM LABORATORIES            Topic: AF13AT05

    ABSTRACT: Physical infrastructure is faced with a variety of security challenges including malicious insiders, hackers, and threats present within the supply chain. Hardware, sensors, and software residing in these environments may be captured or compromised by an adversary for the purpose of attacking or disrupting operations. Recent examples of attacks on such infrastructure can be found in Fla ...

  9. High-Efficiency Waste Heat Removal System (WHRS) for Low-Observable Heat Rejection from Aircraft

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF131009

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop for the Air Force a high-efficiency Waste Heat Removal System (WHRS) that removes large amounts of waste heat from aircraft with negligible impacts on signature and aerodynamic performance. Our WHRS absorbs heat from aircraft thermal loads, including a Thermal Energy Storage (TES) system that absorbs and stores heat from the cooling system of a High Energy Laser ( ...
