  3. Design Tools for Hardware Trojan Detection and Mitigation

    SBC: BlueRISC Inc            Topic: SB173004

    With the increasing complexity of the modern semiconductor supply chain and increasing prevalence of the fabless manufacturing model, the hardware security and design integrity of integrated circuits are threatened by untrusted components such as hardware Trojans. BlueRISC proposes an automated EDA toolkit that utilizes existing Design-For-Testability (DFT) structures (e.g. scan-chains) to enable ...

  4. Daytime Marker

    SBC: JGM ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: SOCOM173001

    Phase I work will combine computer modeling and lab experiments to demonstrate feasibility of a hand-held marker / designator that can generate laser emission at 1064 nm, a wavelength in the 3000 to 4200 nm range, and at a wavelength in the 4400 to 5400 nm range.By improving laser beam quality by a factor of 4 to 16, we will reduce laser output pulse energy requirements by a factor of 10 to 100 at ...

  5. Quantum Cascade Lasers for Multi-Band Daytime Markers

    SBC: Forward Photonics LLC            Topic: SOCOM173001

    The prevalence of precision guided munitions has increased dramatically in the previous decades, with estimates showing nearly 90% of munitions will be precision guided by 2020. Of these munitions over 90% are expected to be laser guided. There still exists a challenge in reliably laser designating a target in full daylight conditions. Expanding the current laser designator abilities to these mid- ...

  8. Rapid Acquisition Management Platform (RAMP)

    SBC: GURU Technology            Topic: SOCOM18004

    The Government current software development acquisition process takes months or years for technology to reach operational users. The process within the Department of Defense (DoD) is drastically more expensive than available options used in the commercial market space. GURU Technology will demonstrate feasibility of an innovative platform to: 1) drastically lower cost, 2) improve results, 3) signi ...

  9. Improving Human Performance through Neuroenhancement

    SBC: REJUVENATE BIO INC            Topic: SOCOM182002

    Special Operations Forces (SOF) are an integral aspect of the US military. SOF operators are among the most elite and highly qualified individuals in the U.S. military. As such, extraordinary physical and mental demands are placed upon them to excel in extreme environments for extended periods of time. This unrelenting cycle of combat deployments and intense pre-deployment training shortens the fu ...
