  1. Lowest-Cost Attack Path (L-CAP)


    Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) proposes an attack model based on attack paths. An attack path is any sequence of steps in an attack tree that will lead to a successful attack. The model then computes the safety of the program as the minimum cost attack path, "the path of least resistance". That is, the attack path where every other attack path would be more expensive. As part of ...

  2. Low Fuel-Consumption, High-Altitude Capable, Heavy-Fuel Internal Combustion (IC) Engine Concepts for Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV)

    SBC: BONNER MOTOR CORP.            Topic: A05054

    Internal Combustion engines (IC) are bound in their ability to create power primarily by the volume of air an engine is able to deliver to the combustion chamber. This formula has particular import at high altitude, where air pressure decreases, resulting in a correlative power loss. Traditional solutions for generating higher compensating air pressure are limited to external add-on devices such ...

  3. Nanocapsules for transposon therapy in cancer

    SBC: GENESEGUES INC            Topic: A04181

    Viral vectors are used in more than 70% of current gene therapy trials. However, immunogenicity, oncogenicity, and poor tumor transfection efficiencies present significant barriers to clinical success. Sleeping Beauty Transposon (SBT) technology, combined with a targeted, tumor-penetrating, non-viral gene transfer system, offers an alternative approach for therapeutic transgene production with lo ...

  4. Advanced Military Diesel Engine Technologies

    SBC: HANSEN ENGINE CORP.            Topic: A03233

    Diesel engines are attractive for military use because of good fuel economy and ability to use JP8-type fuels. However naturally-aspirated (n.a.) diesel engines have low power density, and small diesel engines are not amenable to turbo-charging. To overcome this disadvantage for weight-sensitive applications such as portable generators (gensets), the use of a novel supercharger is proposed. In ...

  5. Innovative Manufacturing Process Improvements

    SBC: HITCHCOCK INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04111

    This SBIR Phase I project will demonstrate both the technical and economic feasibility of using a fluidized bed system, initially developed for heat treatment, quenching, and aging of premium aluminum sand castings, to separate castings from sand molds, to de-core internal passageways in the castings, to reclaim the sand for re-use, and to use the binder resins from the molds and waste sand from m ...

  6. Computational Modeling of Cold-Hearth Melting Processes

    SBC: INNOVATIVE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: AF05130

    The overall objective of the proposed research is to develop a comprehensive, efficient, and well-validated computational model for the prediction of the process performance and quality of the titanium alloys produced using the Electron Beam Melting (EBM) and Plasma Arc Melting (PAM) processes. The computational model will analyze all the underlying physical phenomena in cold hearth melting namely ...

  7. Air Traffic Control (ATC) Tactical Briefcase

    SBC: JACKPINE TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: AF05049

    Jackpine Technologies, teamed with Lockheed Martin Transportation and Security Solutions, present a plan to build an Air Traffic Control Tactical Briefcase (ATCTB). The ATCTB will be used by personnel who require airspace situational awareness, but need to hand carry their ATC equipment. In addition to providing the necessary functionality, the system will need to meet size, ruggedness and relia ...

  8. In-Situ and Temporary Augmentation of Ship Hull Forms to Improve Top Speed

    SBC: MECHMATH LLC            Topic: N05049

    U.S. Navy intends to modify transport craft hull forms in-situ in order to reduce hull hydrodynamic drag down to level that allows the 30% increase of their top speed. The project is emphasized on the craft LCU 1600. For such increase, designers must cut roughly a half of the craft total drag. This would require reduce both friction and wave resistance. Mechmath LLC plans achieve the friction redu ...

  9. Wiring System In-Situ Health Monitoring Diagnostics

    SBC: MINNESOTA WIRE & CABLE COMPANY            Topic: AF04153

    Maintaining wire integrity of aging aircraft is an immense effort and cost for the military and commercial airlines. The Navy is reported to spend 1.8 million maintenance hours annually trouble shooting and repairing aircraft wiring. The development of an in-situ wire fault location system is critical to the solution to reduce cost, minimize downtime and improve safety. A key component of this sys ...

  10. Ruggedized Multifunction Fiber-Optic Transceiver Optical Subassembly

    SBC: Mytek, LLC            Topic: N05T005

    We will address the requirement for fault identification and isolation in fiber optic data links by incorporating an optical time domain reflectance (OTDR) functionality into the transceiver module. Our approach is to monolithically integrate a high speed photodetector that will sense reflections from discontinuities in the optical channel, with the 850nm VCSEL which transmits the signal.
