  1. FUSE: Inter-Application Security for Android

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: SB102002

    Mobile applications are becoming ubiquitous, appearing in many new situations. Some of these areas have specific requirements pertaining to information flow and device functionality. However, software on these devices is currently unregulated, and there are mechanisms within the mobile operating systems that facilitate unintended and undesirable information sharing as well as granting excessive co ...

  2. Innovative Approaches to Low Power, Sub-Threshold Electronic Circuits

    SBC: CAMGIAN MICROSYSTEMS CORP            Topic: SB082045

    This program proposes to demonstrate an ultra-low power design methodology and circuits for digital logic employing advanced dynamic voltage scaling (DVS) for asynchronous NULL Convention Logic (NCL) circuits operating in sub-threshold to super-threshold voltage regimes. The power supply voltages of logic block partitions will be independently set by on-chip voltage controllers based on the data p ...

  3. Open System Manufacturing of Large Sensing/Weapons Platforms

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: SB102005

    In order to maintain our nation’s technological superiority on air, sea and land, we must respond quicker to emerging threats and reduce the cost of major sensing platforms. Every DoD platform developed nowadays contains at least one sensor, whether it be RF, EO/IR, or acoustic. In fact, in a lot of recent developments, the platform is built around the sensor and exists only to support the senso ...

  4. Miniaturized Cast Metal Integrated Components

    SBC: American Industrial Casting,            Topic: N/A

    Investment castings have well served both the military and commercial markets in such areas as waveguides and splitters for microwave applications, and for connectors, housings, heat sinks and mechanical parts for electronics, optical, instrumentation, and medical devices. Tomorrow's higher RF millimeter wave and communications electronics products, and more compact optical, instrumentation and m ...

  5. Four-Quadrant Resonant Drive with Ports for Other Electrical Equipment

    SBC: Electronic Power            Topic: N/A

    A new quasi-resonant converter, called the unipolar series resonant converter ("USRC"), will be adapted as a four-quadrant drive for electric vehicles ("EVs"). With zero current and voltage switching, it will high modulation frequency (over 30 khz), thus driving a motor silently and efficiently throughout the speed range. The USRC produces any waveform required by any type of EV motor. It produces ...

  6. High Surface Area Carbon Electrodes for Electrochemical Double Layer Capacitors

    SBC: EVANS CAPACITOR COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    A novel method for preparing carbon electrode structures having applications in electrochemical double layer capacitors (EDLCs) is described. The method for preparing these structures employs carbon (graphite) nano fiber materials and results in an electrode having both high surface area and high electronic conductivity; two essential characteristics for EDLC electrodes. The fabrication process ...

  7. Integrating Decision-Theoretic Design Rationale into Design Team Workflow

    SBC: Prevision Inc            Topic: N/A

    Software design, development, and maintenance constitute a complex and time-intensive process. Early design decisions can have a crucial impact on both quality and cost. Design rationale tools have been shown to be effective in supporting this process, but are infrequently used due to their interference with normal design team workflow. The rapid growth of new network and web-mediated workstyle ...

  8. Improved Reference Sources for Low-Bit Error Rate Communication In Digital Wireless and Fiber Optic Systems

    SBC: Redpoint Microwave, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A fundamental component responsible for low bit error rate (BER) is the phase jitter of the frequency reference source, regardless if a network is wireless or fiber optic in nature. In the case of wireless the frequency reference source is typically a voltage controlled oscillator (VCO), and in the fiber optic case it is a clock. In order to maximize the full benefit of spread spectrum technique ...

  9. HARDWARE IMPLEMENTATION OF OPTICAL CHARACTER RECOGNITION USING ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORKS

    SBC: Adaptive Solutions Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF OPTICAL CHARACTER RECOGNITION (OCR) ON A VLSI NEUROCOMPUTER. THE OCR SYSTEM WILL USE STATE OF THE ART ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORK CLASSIFIERS ONADAPTIVE SOLUTIONS' CNAPS NEUROCOMPUTER CHIPS. THE CNAPS CHIPS OFFERUNPRECEDENTED PERFORMANCE OF ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORKS. THE IMAGE PREPROCESSING OF THE OCR SYSTEM WILL ALSO EXECUTE ON THE CNAPS CHIPS. THE GOAL ...

  10. Electrical Architecture for Electric Vehicles

    SBC: Electronic Power            Topic: N/A

    Electronic Power Conditioning Incorporated will design, assemble and demonstrate a new bi-directional converter which can become the heart of the electrical system of the electricially driven vehicle ("EV"). There are four major elements in the generalized EV: (1) prime source (engine generator); (2) storage (batteries or flywheels); (3) propulsion (motor and speed controller); and (4) auxiliary l ...
