  1. Miniature and Reliale Chemical Sensors for Cell Phones

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: HSB081002

    In the event of a terrorist attack, the ability to measure the extent and location of the attack and rapidly notify first responders will be critical to saving lives. If the widespread use of cell phones could be harnessed with an ability to detect chemical threats and immediately notify authorities of the scope and location of the attack, public safety would be significantly enhanced. Synkera pro ...

  2. Verifiable Claims and Fit-for-Purpose Decentralized Ledgers

    SBC: Digital Bazaar, Inc.            Topic: HSB0161002

    Blockchain technology shows promise when applied to identity management ecosystems. However, current blockchain technology stacks have been designed and optimized such that they are tightly coupled to a specific application area. More often than not, they focus on the transfer of financial value, not identity management. If ledger technology is going to be used to solve a wide variety of problems, ...

  3. Current Event Future Outcome Framework

    SBC: High Performance Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB081003

    Many government agencies share the need to determine the best courses of action that diminish the long range threat, vulnerability or impact from a potential event that affects our domestic population or infrastructure. We propose to develop a functional prototype of the Current Event - Future Outcome (CEFO) software we described in Phase I, which will leverage the existing wealth of domain-specif ...

  6. MEGASCOP: Multi Interface Secure Audio/Video Rebroadcasting (SAVR) System

    SBC: McQ Inc.            Topic: HSB0161001

    Through this SBIR, a system will be developed to enable authorized users to access video and audio from existing surveillance systems, and rebroadcast the video/audio signals for use by authorized users such as first responders. McQ will leverage its extensive camera interface, video compression, cryptography, and product development experience to both perform the appropriate tradeoffs in designin ...

  7. Intelligent Bio-Adaptive Team Training System

    SBC: Human Bionics            Topic: N/A

    As we face new formidable challenges in the area of global asymmetric warfare, the DHS must be able to rapidly train and test those individuals responsible for screening of persons that may wish to bring harm to the U.S. and its allies. Thus there is a vast need to train individuals faster and to improve training outcomes, possibly by training in teams of screeners working together to improve thei ...

  8. Modular Frequency Extenders for Vector Network Analyzers

    SBC: Virginia Diodes, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Modular frequency extenders will be developed for Vector Network Analyzers to extend their frequency range throughout the band from 100 GHz through 1THz with excellent dynamic range (100dB) and the capability for full four port measurements. The extenders will rely on VDI's full waveguide band frequency multipliers and mixers that utilize planar, integrated Schottky diode circuits. The modular nat ...

  9. SIM Forward: Leveraging Trusted Authentication for New 5G Services

    SBC: NAND Technologies, Inc            Topic: HSB0171004

    Threats to mobile networks are pervasive and deep. Due to aging standards and an initial approach of minimum viable security significant risks persist. Spoofing, tampering, and denial of service are three primary vulnerabilities. Ultimately updating global standards to increase authentication and security is likely to be the terminal solution, however this is likely to take well over to a decade. ...
