Pantograph: Secure, Cross-domain Object Models

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Cornell University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF13-AT08
Budget: 10/24/13 - 07/23/14
PI: Dr. Matthew Stillerman

ABSTRACT: Most cross-domain information flows require some human intervention to ensure that the requirements for releasability are met. Such intervention is expensive and slow, and can form a bottleneck in operations. Unfortunately, fully automated sharing of information across security domain boundaries is also fraught with difficulties due to...

Inorganic Oxide Supported Biomimetic Membranes with Ion Channels for DMFC Application

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Cornell University

Agency: Army
Topic: A11A-T013
Budget: 09/27/13 - 09/30/14
PI: Mahesh Waje

Methanol crossover of commercial Nafion membranes is a major issue that results in lowering of the efficiency of direct methanol fuel cells (DMFCs). A biomimetic approach for the membrane design using either proton conducting nanochannels and/or nanothin barrier layer can produce DMFC membranes with highly selective and fast proton transfer. In ...

Multi-scale Peridynamics Theory for Corrosion Fatigue Damage Prediction

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Cornell University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N13A-T007
Budget: 08/15/13 - 03/15/14
PI: Dr. Nagaraja Iyyer

TDA and its University partner, Cornell University, first address the stress assisted corrosion crack growth from concurrent multi-scale modeling through atomistic simulations in order to formulate and calibrate mesoscale Peridynamics model. Initially, the multi-scale CADD simulations will utilize reactive force field potentials for the 7075-T6A...

Compact Integrated Silicon Nitride Microresonator Accelerometer

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Cornell University

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ST13A-002
Budget: 07/02/13 - 01/02/14
PI: Dennis Tishinin

To solve the DARPA need for high-performance MEMS-based optomechanical accelerometers, Applied Optronics proposes to develop a Compact Integrated Silicon Nitride Microresonator Accelerometer (OPTIMA), which is based on a combination of a high-Q silicon ni

DivA: Automated Generation of Logical Code Diversity

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Cornell University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N11A-T023
Budget: 01/09/13 - 07/09/14
PI: Dr. David Guaspari

If a computer system suffers a cyber attack, any compromised component that is simply reinstalled will remain vulnerable to the attack that damaged it; so replacements should provide equivalent services implemented differently. This defense can be applied proactively, to create a moving target by periodic reconfiguration. Implementing these st...

STTR Phase I: Multi Scale Solution Tool For Solving Complex Life Science Problems

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Cornell University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EB-2012
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13
PI: Aleksey V. Vasenkov

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of software for the development of solutions to complex life science problems. Life science is truly an interdisciplinary field for which real collaborations can substantially advance the level of technology and product development. However, co...

1200 V/50 A AlGaN-GaN-Si MOS-HFETs and Schottky Rectifiers

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Cornell University

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 11C-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13
PI: Siddarth Sundaresan

DoEs recent emphasis on increasing fuel economy requires electrification of the vehicle powertrain, thus leading to extended range electric vehicles (EREVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), battery electric vehicles (BEV) and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV). All electric propulsion systems require high current, high-voltage (600 V-1200 V), l...

Novel Materials for Higher Order Mode Suppressors

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Cornell University

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 32B-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13
PI: Alan Rae

There is a need to increase the beam intensity of particle accelerators based on superconducting RF cavities, but detrimental Higher Order Modes (HOMs) generate inside the cavities. HOMs excite the beam and lead to instabilities and particle losses. HOM dampers absorb this RF power and are critical component, but next generation HOM absorber mat...

STTR Phase I: Software tools for sustainable nutrient management on specialty crop farms

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Cornell University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: AS-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13
PI: Giulia M. Stellari

This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project will determine whether a mass balance approach can be used to evaluate inputs and outputs in complex agronomic systems and whether this soil nutrient management model can be delivered via an online software platform to help farmers improve the sustainability of their soil nu...

SEmantic Context Aware Network Tools (SECANT)

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Cornell University

Agency: Army
Topic: A12A-T009
Budget: 12/31/12 - 06/16/13
PI: Tim Hawes

Social network analysis has become one of the most powerful analytic tools in both private and government sectors and a key source of information on individuals and groups. Recently, social media arose as an important source for social network data in both sectors. Unfortunately, theoretically motivated approaches to social network analysis have...
