  1. Decision Making under Uncertainty for Dynamic Spectrum Access

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: Due to scarcity of spectrum, Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) becomes a needed technology to improve the utilization of electromagnetic spectrum for DoD satellite communication. However, current DSA approaches are developed for terrestrial communications without addressing the unique challenges for SATCOM environments such as error-prone spectrum sensing, high mobility, and large coverage. ...

  2. RADIUS: Reliable and Adaptive Decision makIng under Uncertainty for Spectrum access

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: Intelligent Automation Inc. proposes to design a robust decision making and dynamic spectrum access (DSA) system for satellite communications under uncertainty. Our system integrates various types of uncertainty caused by environment, regulation, uncontrollable user effects, and prediction. We will first develop methods to quantify the uncertainty by either individual observation or col ...

  3. Secure Efficient Cross-domain Protocols

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT08

    ABSTRACT: Coordinating and sharing information across multi-level security (MLS) networks are of great interest in many military applications. However, it is very challenging to accomplish those goals due to the heterogeneous security classifications of different network domains. The recent proposed cross-domain solutions (CDS) provide initial steps to make such applications possible. However, th ...

  4. HPC-MTT: High Performance Computing Enabled Multiple Target Tracking for Urban Surveillance Areas

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF13AT10

    ABSTRACT: Advances in large scale visual sensors enable (near) real time acquisition of imagery data over wide urban surveillance areas. Data collected by such sensors, such as the wide area motion imagery (WAMI) systems, however poses computational challenges to existing visual analysis algorithms. Among many tasks, tracking multiple moving target indicators (MTI) is of fundamental importance si ...

  5. Representation and Inference for Developing Deep Language Engines (RIDDLE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT11

    ABSTRACT: Intelligence analysts need to process large amounts of text information to form an understanding of a topic of interest. The sheer amount of information can be overwhelming, so automated text analytics that assist with filtering, information extraction, and document understanding, can be highly beneficial. Deep natural language processing (NLP) applications require both structural knowl ...

  6. RADAR: Risk Assessment of Disclosure via Automated Reasoning

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT14

    ABSTRACT: We propose a comprehensive Risk Assessment of Disclosure via Automated Reasoning (RADAR) system. This system will leverage and advance various theoretical models in statistical inference (e.g., probe selection and posterior estimation) and information theory (e.g., entropy approach) to obtain a set of analytical tools for information disclosure analysis. These tools are integrated into ...

  9. Development of an Innovative System for Cryodeposit Mitigation and Redmediation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF12BT10

    ABSTRACT: Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and the University of Tennessee Space Institute (UTSI) will develop an innovative system to measure and control the cryodeposit layer thickness that develops on cold (~20 K) surfaces in cryogenic radiometric calibration chambers. Currently removing the cryo-layer involves a lengthy process that warms the entire cryo-system to desorb the cryo-layer that incr ...
