  2. Pitch Day in Command, Control, Communications, Intelligence, and Network (C3I&N)

    SBC: Barrier Group, Llc, The            Topic: AF191009

    Cyber resilient communications, networks, and data links are more important now than ever. Cybersecurity threats are polymorphic and rapidly changing which make it hard to keep up with ever mutating threat. Additionally, most Air Force security systems are passive, meaning once an attack has been identified, the Air Force then tries to repair the damage that has been done and update their system t ...

  5. SCARS Migration Toolkit (SCARS-MT)


    To combat rising sustainment costs, the AF is establishing the Simulator Common Architecture Requirements and Standards (SCARS) sustainment initiative. SCARS will define a modular open Simulator Common Architecture (SCA) that provides a common infrastructure for Air Force simulators. Migrating existing simulators to the SCA will require significant effort. Each team will face many challenges and o ...

  7. Direct Measurement of Targeting Coordinates from Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (SUAS) EO/IR Gimbal Systems

    SBC: TRILLIUM ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: AF171120

    Trillium proposes both hardware and software developments in the Phase II effort to further refine geolocation improvements found in Phase I and design a robust gimbal product that has future expandability. Trillium prototyped and flight tested a number of software algorithms in Phase 1 that can be extrapolated to show CAT-1 geolocation accuracy from a range of 2000ft. However, these were accompli ...

  8. Missile Plume Analysis and Modeling for Generation of Missile Profiles Used in Missile Warning


    Threat signature phenomenology plays an increasingly important role in the development of a wide variety of missile warning technologies, both at the tactical and strategic levels. There has been a recent proliferation of the number of missiles developed that use trajectory-shaping maneuvers as a method of range and flight profile control. This trend is also driven by the desire for advanced opera ...
