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

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.

Supersonic Spy Drone

To light off its ramjet engine, the 2,300-mph D-21 needed a blindingly-fast launch platform. Enter the Lockheed A-12.

When is that wild thing coming out? It would be a reasonable question for an average reader to ask after looking at a picture of the futuristic D-21 drone, a windowless aircraft with a sharp cone-shaped nose, a delta-shaped wing-fuselage structure and a single vertical tailfin. Code-named ‘Tagboard’ during its CIA- and Air Force-funded mid-1960s development by Lockheed's secretive Skunk Works advanced-projects group in Burbank, Calif., the D-21 was intended to answer a question that was driving U.S. national security officials mad: How was the Chinese military progressing in its effort to build and test nuclear weapons?

An effort to overcome the challenges involved in developing complete performance ontologies and test methodologies for evaluating the performance of autonomous systems.

There are many challenges in developing complete performance ontologies and test methodologies to define and evaluate the performance of autonomous systems. Chief among them is the dynamic environment in which the autonomous system is expected to operate. Change in the autonomous system's environment is expected to affect system performance. Test methodologies have to include all aspects of this dynamic environment.
