Moving target defense (MTD) is a promising strategy for gaining advantage over cyber attackers, but these dynamic reconfigurations can impose significant overhead. We propose implementing MTD within an optimization framework so that we seize defensive advantage while minimizing overhead. This dissertation presents an MTD scheme that leverages partially observable Markov decision processes (POMDP) with absorbing states to select the optimal defense based on partial observations of the cyber...

This paper presents early results from aircraft measurements made by a Low-LET Radiation Spectrometer (LoLRS), as part of a long-range effort to study the complex dynamics of the atmospheric radiation field. For this purpose, a comprehensive data base is being generated to enable a multivariable global mapping (and eventually modeling) of doses and Linear-Energy-Transfer (LET) spectra at aviation altitudes. To accomplish this, a methodical collection of data from the LoLRS (and other...

A platoon commander has a helicopter to support two squads, which encounter two types of missions -- critical or routine --on a daily basis. During a mission, a squad always benefits from having the helicopter, but the benefit is greater during a critical mission than during a routine mission. Because the commander cannot verify the mission type beforehand, a selfish squad would always claim a critical mission to compete for the helicopterâ which leaves the commander no choice but to assign...

In this thesis, a wavelet-based prediction method is developed for concealing packet-loss effects in wireless channels. The proposed method utilizes a wavelet decomposition algorithm in order to process the data and then applies the well known linear prediction technique to estimate one or more approximation coefficients as necessary at the lowest resolution level. The predicted sample stream is produced by using the predicted approximation coefficients and by exploiting certain sample value...

Topic: Markov processes

High-resolution combat simulations that model urban combat currently use computationally expensive algorithms to represent urban target acquisition at the entity level. While this may be suitable for small-scale urban combat scenarios, simulation run time can become unacceptably long for larger scenarios. Consequently, there is a need for models that can lend insight into target acquisition in urban terrain for largescale scenarios in an acceptable length of time. This research develops urban...

As the military continues to expand its use of intelligent agents in a variety of operational aspects, event prediction and learning algorithms are becoming more and more important. In this paper, we conduct a detailed analysis of two such algorithms: Variable Order Markov and Look-Up Table models. Each model employs different parameters for prediction, and this study attempts to determine which model is more accurate in its prediction and why. We find the models contrast in that the Variable...

Topic: Markov processes

In this thesis, we investigate the examination of a manufacturer's in-house quality program as an alternative to acceptance sampling. The manufacturing process addressed is one which consists of a production section, capable of producing items at one of two levels of fraction nonconforming, and a quality control section which consists of a single p-chart. The quality levels that result from this manufacturing process are represented using a Markov chain. A method of estimating the fraction of...

Aqueous phase-separated polymer solutions can be used as support media for the partition of biological macromolecules, organelles and cells. Cell separations using the technique have proven to be extremely sensitive to cell surface properties but application of the systems are limited to cells or aggregates which do not significantly while the phases are settling. Partition in zero g in principle removes this limitation but an external driving force must be applied to induce the phases to...

X-ray binaries in the Milky Way are among the brightest objects on the X-ray sky. With the increasing sensitivity of recent missions, it is now possible to study X-ray binaries in nearby galaxies. We present data on six ultraluminous binaries in the nearby spiral galaxy, M101, obtained with Chandra ACIS-S. Of these, five appear to be similar to ultraluminous sources in other galaxies, while the brightest source, P098, shows some unique characteristics. We present our interpretation of the data...

An effort to understand and control the unsteady separated flow associated with the dynamic stall of airfoils was funded for three years through the NASA cooperative agreement program. As part of this effort a substantial data base was compiled detailing the effects various parameters have on the development of the dynamic stall flow field. Parameters studied include Mach number, pitch rate, and pitch history, as well as Reynolds number (through two different model chord lengths) and the...

Codes have been discussed recently in connection with signal compression and noise reduction in communication theory, and they are here defined as transformations between two time series of discrete symbols. The electronic apparatus which performs the transformation, or any part of the apparatus, can be described by a linear graph which represents transitions between different memory-states. It will be shown how these graphs can be used to systematically classify codes, combine different blocks...

This thesis discusses the fluctuations of noise in a two and three dimensional semiconductor containing a p-n Junction. We consider a rectangular parallelepiped single crystal It is bisected in the longest dimension by a p-n Junction. Since this dimension is several diffusion lengths it can be considered infinite. In the transverse plane we investigate the case where both dimensions are finite, and then the case where one is finite and the other infinite. In the p-n junction the noise is the...

On the basis of the stochastic model of multiple scattering of photons, we consider the diffuse reflection and transmission of a parallel beam of radiation by a finite, plane-parallel, nonemitting and homogeneous atmosphere with conservative and isotropic scattering. We assume that the stochastic process under consideration represents a homogeneous stationary evolution in a Markovian manner with respect to the optical depth. First we derive the forward and the backward integro-differential...

The research reported in this thesis has shown that certain amino acids, other closely related molecules, amino acid polymers and proteins develop metastable excited states with very long lifetimes (hours) when irradiated with ultraviolet light at 77 K. Transitions from these states to states of lower energy result in the emission of light. This light, in the form of thermoluminescence, has been observed upon heating the compounds following ultraviolet irradiation. The wavelength of excftlng...
