Long-Distance LADAR System and Method

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35980
Published 2020-02-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

A laser detection and ranging (LADAR) system was developed to provide unambiguous range and velocity measurements of long-distance targets such as sea-skimming anti-ship missiles. By using the LADAR's range and velocity data, false alarms and clutter objects will be distinguished from incoming missiles at longer ranges (up to 10 km). Because the developed LADAR uses an array receiver, it can also provide three-dimensional (3D) imagery of potential threats at closer ranges (2-3 km) in support of the force protection/situational awareness mission.

Real-Time Heuristics and Metaheuristics for Static and Dynamic Weapon Target Assignments

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-34872
Published 2019-08-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Projectile weapons have been a consistent threat of hostilities throughout history. Military advantage has always been aided by the capacity to inflict damage from a distance. In the 20th century, missile technology advanced to the point that an adversary had the potential to attack a protected asset from great distances. To neutralize this stand-off threat, the concept of air defense evolved. However, as the ability to reduce a missile threat increased, so, too, did the quantity and quality of missiles available, and research into the effective allocation of air defense resources emerged.

Hands-on Cybersecurity Studies: Multi-Perspective Analysis of the WannaCry Ransomware

Aerospace & Defense Technology: August 2019

  • Magazine Article
  • 19AERP08_10
Published 2019-08-01 by SAE International in United States

In-depth analysis of malware provides strategy to defend against future attacks.

Ransomware is malware that obstructs a user from accessing digital assets through various mechanisms. These assets are held hostage and inaccessible until the user pays a ransom. In most cases, this is accomplished using encryption where, once the malicious program executes, it will target and encrypt certain files and will release the decryption key at the time of payment. Some ransomware instances target only certain common user-generated files such as media and documents. In this case, system files and others required for the operating system to function correctly (user authentication, process execution, etc.) are unaffected. Others encrypt much more and seek to lock out entire systems.

Coating Technology Enables Effective Missile Countermeasures

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-34530
Published 2019-06-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Heat-seeking missiles have been in use against both rotorcraft and fixed wing aircraft since the mid-1950s, and countermeasures to deceive their guidance systems have been employed for nearly as long. Typically, countermeasures operate by generating a strong infrared signature which confuses the missile tracking system. At the heart of these systems is some form of powerful infrared emitting source. Often this source requires optical coating(s) to perform wavelength filtering needed for optimum operation. However, both the mechanical configuration of the thin film filter coatings used and the operating extremes to which they are subjected present challenges for the manufacturer.
