  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 ...

  4. Field Level Transparency Inspection System

    SBC: COMPASS TECHNOLOGY GROUP, LLC            Topic: AF183042

    Aircraft transparency systems incorporate conductive layers which require inspection during manufacture and throughout the life of the aircraft to ensure proper electrical performance is achieved and maintained. Transparencies on fielded aircraft are subject to damage as a result of bird strikes, thermal stresses, weather erosion, static discharge, and even during routine maintenance activities (e ...

  5. Biometric IoT System for Air Force

    SBC: FireHUD, Inc.            Topic: AF191005

    FireHUD has developed a real-time, IoT solution for monitoring and analyzing the biometrics of individuals and groups. The solution is currently in use in the firefighting industry but can be applied to any scenario where aggregated group monitoring of physiological status is warranted. The system monitors biometrics through the use of a non-invasive, arm-worn device which provides hands-free coll ...
