  1. Optical Switching Fabric

    SBC: OPTICOMP CORP.            Topic: AF083209

    The major requirements for this program include the modeling of optical switching fabric technologies appropriate to space-borne systems at very high speed. Specifically, this program will evaluate two OptiComp candidate optical transceiver technologies against a Serial Rapid IO switching fabric. A down-selection to one optical transceiver technology will be made. Then, a simulation of that Serial ...

  2. Terabit Per Second Optical Router for Space-Based Satellite Network

    SBC: OPTICOMP CORP.            Topic: AF083191

    The major requirements for this program include the modeling of optical routing technologies appropriate to space-borne systems at very high speed. This program will investigate optical routing at speeds to from 3.125 ro 10 Gbps per channel, with a wavelength/channel density from 4 to 16 wavelengths. Models will be constructed for these regimes, and an experimental demonstration of an 8-wavelength ...

  4. TETMAN: Three-dimensional Exploitation Techniques for Moving And Non-rigid targets

    SBC: Photon-x, Inc.            Topic: AF083172

    The Air Force is seeking a means of using multiple types of sensors (EO, IR, RF) on multiple platforms to perform layered sensing of a large region. The sensors will combine their outputs – including feature extraction/data representation – through a shared GIS system. The multi-sensor, co-registered data will result in improved situational awareness. Human dismounts will be the smallest ob ...

  5. Energy Deposition Techniques to Improve Scramjet Performance

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF083121

    The proposed program will explore the deposition of energy in a scramjet inlet to (re)start supersonic/hypersonic flow, without any moving parts or actuators. The resulting expansion and heating can prompt flow-control that favors inlet-(re)starting. The approach can integrate well with other supersonic/hypersonic flow-control applications, which will further be considered in the course of the pro ...

  6. Data Aggregation and Visualization Environment

    SBC: Pikewerks Corporation            Topic: OSD09IA5

    The rapid increase in diverse and interconnected Information Technology (IT) applications necessitates software solutions that can simultaneously provide cyber situation awareness and real-time status of health of the networked environment. There is a pressing need to aggregate and consolidate information from mission-critical systems and sensors. A unified means of visualization abstracts low-lev ...

  7. Data Authentication and Dissemination using Watermarking for Net-Centric Operations

    SBC: Pikewerks Corporation            Topic: OSD07I07

    The ability to provide positive identification and authentication of data as it is disseminated throughout a network environment remains unsolved for the vast majority of current operational deployments; however, recent advances in steganography and watermarking technology have now begun to provide approaches that address this problem. In combination with traditional encryption, hashing, and time ...

  8. Deception Studio: Attacker Characterization and Dynamic Relocation

    SBC: Pikewerks Corporation            Topic: OSD09IA3

    One of the most significant weaknesses that faces modern software protection solutions is the reliance on static policies and rule sets that are established based on “known” attack methods at the time of development. In reality, attacks are not static; they adapt over time, and evolve to defeat protections as they are made public. Pikewerks proposes to address both of these weaknesses by devel ...

  9. Assurance Validation of Commercial Products Containing IPv6 Transition and Tunneling Mechanisms on the Air Force Network

    SBC: Pikewerks Corporation            Topic: AF083041

    The co-existence of IPv6 communication on established IPv4 networks introduces new security risks. Pikewerks has identified a number of research areas that would significantly improve the network analysis toolset available to network and system administrators and provide transition-phase tunnel authentication. BENEFIT: The software being developed will provide visibility into IPv6 network configu ...

  10. Countermeasures to Covert Access Methods to Reduce Attack Susceptibility and Ensure Trust

    SBC: Pikewerks Corporation            Topic: OSD09IA2

    The majority of existing computer security products and software development efforts have assumed that the OS kernel, firmware, and low-level subsystems of the underlying computer architecture are trusted entities. However, recent demonstrations of novel and sophisticated attacks on several fundamental components found in standard laptops, desktops, and servers have emphasized that the foundations ...
