  • Publication number: 20240235948
    Abstract: Described herein are systems and methods for generating a computing network from natural language descriptions of the computing network are provided. In one or more examples, the systems and methods described below can be used harvest publically available (or even privately available) natural language descriptions of a computing network, and convert those descriptions into an operational replica of the described computing network. By harvesting both publically available data, as well as other resources, the systems and methods described herein can allow for an analyst tasked with analyzing a given computing network to generate a fully operational replica of the computing network without having to have direct access to the network. In one or more examples, the analyst can recreate a fully-functional replica of the network to be analyzed based on partial descriptions of the computing network, thereby greatly improving the level of analysis capable of being performed.

  • Patent number: 12034758
    Abstract: Described herein is a system and method for improving cyber resilience for determining an optimal security policy for a network. The system uses an objective function to balance cyberattack risks, accessibility to network resources, resource limitations, minimum mission availability requirements within a network environment, or a combination thereof. The objective function comprises objectives (one or more variables that enhance accessibility to network resources and reduce cyberattack risks) and constraints (one or more variables that characterize resource limitations or minimum mission availability requirements within a network environment). The optimal security policy is selected by solving one or more optimization problems. The optimization problem may be solved by determining candidate security policies that meet the constraints and selecting among candidate security policies having the highest score for a given objective function.

  • Publication number: 20240192294
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems and methods for measuring integrated circuit activity via spatial resolution of optically detected magnetic resonance (ODMR) of nitrogen-vacancies (NV) in diamond. A quantum diamond microscope (QDM) can be used to capture a series of images of the fluorescence of NV centers present in diamond as a function of an external microwave field. An IC device placed adjacent to the diamond of the QDM will impact the fluorescence of the NV center, and this magnetic field-dependent fluorescence can be measured and used to generate a map of the magnetic field of the IC device.

  • Patent number: 12007459
    Abstract: Systems and methods for estimating magnetic susceptibility of a patient through continuous motion in an MRI scanner are provided herein. In one or more examples, during the collection of data, the patient can be instructed to move their head or other part of the body in a continuous manner and for a fixed duration of time. During the fixed duration of time, magnitude a data from the RF signal can be received by one or more RF coils can be collected. The received and undersampled magnitude data can be converted to phase data which can then be converted to magnetic susceptibility. Thus magnetic susceptibility can be determined while allowing for continuous motion during the MRI scan, which can be more comfortable and feasible for the patient in contrast to techniques that require the patient to hold their body at a particular orientation in the scanner for a fixed duration of time.

  • Patent number: 12003030
    Abstract: An antenna element including a base plate, a first ground clustered pillar projecting from the base plate, a second ground clustered pillar projecting from the base plate and spaced apart from a first side of the first ground clustered pillar is provided. The ground clustered pillars, the signal ears, and the ground ears can be shapes so that the capacitive coupling between the ears and the pillars is sufficient to allow them to be spaced further apart, thereby reducing the number of elements required in the phased array. In some embodiments, the ground ear can be directly machined with the base plate thereby obviating the need for the ground ear to be overmolded into the base plate with the signal ear. In other embodiments the phased array antenna can utilize elastomeric connectors to further improve the mechanical and electrical reliability of the connections of the phase array antenna.

  • Publication number: 20240118537
    Abstract: Provided herein is a photonic integrated circuit and methods for controlling a photonic integrated circuit that can utilize the resonant frequency of one or more components of the photonic integrated circuit to enhance the response of the circuit. At least one component of the photonic integrated circuit can be driven by an electrical signal whose frequency is substantially equal to the mechanical resonance frequency of the component such that the response of the optical component is increased. The component of the photonic integrated circuit can include a phase shifter that can impart a phase shift on a received optical signal. By driving the phase shifter with an electrical signal that is equal to the mechanical resonance frequency of the optical phase shifter, less power can be required to impart a desired phase shift on a received optical signal. The optical components can be implemented using piezoelectric cantilevers.

  • Publication number: 20240113952
    Abstract: Described herein are systems and methods for assessing a computing network's physical robustness to node and/or link failure during operation of the computing network. In one or more examples, the systems and methods can incorporate graph modeling and analysis techniques to assess the impact of node removal from a computing network and determine the impact that such removal has on the overall physical connectivity of the network. In one or more examples, a user or other entity can provide the system with a graph representation of a computing network, as well as specify the number of nodes to be removed (i.e., to simulate failure) to test the connectivity of the network. The system using these inputs can determine a worst-case scenario operating condition based on the inputs provided by the user, and can also assess the “network merit” which can represent a user-programmable definition that can represent a plurality desired types of connectivity.
