Principal Investigator: Mark Tehranipoor

Sponsor: Edaptive Computing

Start Date: July 1, 2019

End Date: May 31, 2020

Amount: $240,000


This effort, AutoBoM, will enhance, deploy, transition, and support decision- aiding tools for the AFRL Joint Federated Assurance Center (JFAC) trust laboratory research and development of analysis and design tools to promote trusted systems engineering for IC electronics – from concept analysis through deployment in a Trust facility. This effort will encompass Kanban board, workflow, and knowledge management tool enhancements along with traditional analysis methods such as modeling and simulation and formation methods-based verification.

The goal of this program is to advance the state-of-the-art of design, development, optimization, implementation, sustainment, and acquisition of trustworthy hardware and software systems for the United States Air Force. This effort will continue to implement and integrate technologies and tools already developed and partially implemented to assist the Air Force and other Department of Defense (DoD) entities in design, development, and manufacture of trustworthy systems. In addition, it will promote research and development, transition modeling, analysis, and optimization of trusted systems engineering for hardware and software. The results are expected to be robust methods which improve mitigation and protection technologies, operational employment, and trustworthiness throughout the lifecycle of target systems. This effort will also facilitate trusted modification of commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) systems to meet specific needs of the DoD and the United States Military Services.
