  3. A Heuristic Approach to Detecting Anomalous Protocol Payloads

    SBC: Cigital, Inc.            Topic: HSB042002

    Internet worms have become a common occurrence, but they have yet to inflict significant damage on our information infrastructure. Security experts predict the dawn of a new age of superworms that are far more dangerous than those we have encountered, and whose speed, stealth, and destructive power pose a significant threat. One promising approach to preventing the spread of future worms is to ex ...

  4. A Low Cost AIS Class B Compliant Small Vessel Tracking and Collision Avoidance System

    SBC: International Maritime Information Systems USA, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this proposed research is to determine the feasibility of developing and commercializing an innovative, low cost, high performance small boat tracking and collision avoidance device. Small boats are defined as being floating craft that fall into the category of port vessels, leisure, un-powered and small fishing craft. The device would be compatible with the Automatic Identification Sy ...

  5. A process to enable large-scale manufacturing of solid-state neutron detectors

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The main objective of this DHS SBIR project is to enable large-scale and economical production of high-sensitivity, solid-state, thermal neutron detectors for use in radiological inspection. This will be done by testing a novel, high-density, energetic ion deposition technique for depositing the active material, boron-10, onto the patterned silicon, which forms the substrate for these devices. In ...

  6. A Spintronic Room Temperature High Purity Germanium Gamma Radiation Spectrometer

    SBC: Sentor            Topic: HSB051002

    Recent breakthroughs in the emerging field of spintronics (short for spin-based electronics) suggest that it may be possible to develop a high purity germanium detector that operates at room temperature. This tantalizing possibility is due to the discovery that the resistance of a semiconductor device with anti-aligned spintronic front and back contacts is independent of the intrinsic carrier conc ...

  7. Accelerated Encryption Key Recovery Using FPGAs

    SBC: CRUCIAL SECURITY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes a system that would expedite the lawful decryption of encrypted containers by leveraging the computational speed of field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). The proposed system, which is partially hardware-based, will provide dramatic increases in speed when compared to purely software-based solutions. In addition to being able to increase speed, the solution is also highly ...

  8. Acoustic Vector Sensor

    SBC: PROGENY SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0112001

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection wants to extend unattended ground sensor (UGS) functionality to provide a real-time capability to track targets of interest. Progeny will develop Acoustic Vector Sensor (AVS) as a low-cost and low-power augment sensor to track airborne targets, with a small covert form factor and connecting to other UGS with a standard serial data and power interface. AVS has a c ...

    SBIR Phase I 2011 Department of Homeland Security
  9. Adaptation of Advanced Technology for Ordnance Surveillance to a Marine Asset Tag Tracking System

    SBC: PHASE IV ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I, Phase IV proposes to develop the overall architecture and design of a prototype RF system for shipping containers that will operate in the marine environment while being loaded stacked aboard ship, on board deck of a ship in a stack, unloaded, and moved and stacked in shipping terminals. Phase IV has developed a state-of-the-art RF system for tracking and monitoring munitions, both at ...

    SBIR Phase I 2004 Department of Homeland Security
  10. Advanced high-efficiency semiconductor neutron detectors of annular ring design

    SBC: Mocha Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is for the design and development of advanced high-efficiency semiconductor thermal neutron detectors in both silicon and silicon carbide. These detectors will provide detectors with neutron conversion efficiency exceeding 40%, depending on detector configuration. The use of annular ring design features eliminates neutron streaming and other undesirable effects of previous perforated ...
