  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Photoaptamers as Capture Reagents for Biological Agents

    SBC: Somalogic, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Antibodies are the prototypical capture reagent for biological agents (proteins and pathogens). However, despite their advantages, antibodies also have significant disadvantages with respect to shelf life, production reproducibility and, less importantly, cost. Alternative receptor scaffolds, such as nucleic acid-based photoaptamers, offer similar performance characteristics to antibodies but with ...

  4. Portable detector for low vapor pressure toxic chemicals

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    Synkera Technologies proposes to develop an innovative new field detector for low vapor pressure toxic industrial chemicals (TICs). This detector will be based upon the integration of a unique low power pre-concentrator with an array of solid state electrochemical sensors. The solid state electrochemical sensors will be based upon the use of solid polymer electrolytes with microband electrodes. Th ...

  5. Swimmer Detection

    SBC: Alaska Native Technologies, LLC            Topic: HSB051004

    The United States Coast Guard`s homeland security mission includes providing security for 361 ports and 95,000 miles of US Coastline. This coastline is susceptible to both criminal and terrorist attack. Waterside facilities and critical infrastructure are especially vulnerable to attack from on or under water. Alaska Native Technologies, LLC (ANT) propose using broadband active sonar technology co ...

  6. Border Surveillance

    SBC: PERCEPTEK            Topic: N/A

    The 1400 mile southern border of the United States has historically been difficult to secure due to the vast stretches of land and the inhospitable nature of the terrain. This situation has resulted in a breach of our immigration laws but more importantly provides an opportunity for terrorists to illegally enter the country unobserved. Our phase I effort will demonstrate the feasibility of the sig ...

  7. Networked Event and Object Correlated Multimedia System

    SBC: SEMQUEST, INC.            Topic: N/A

    100 cameras each with one million pixel resolution operating at 30 frames per second would require 24Gbps of bandwidth without data compression. Even at 100:1 compression the bandwidth is still large relative to existing digital systems, and this bandwidth is continuous. We propose a technology that continuously digitizes and records data from a scaleable system with 1000¿s of cameras. This sur ...

  8. Human Detector for Cargo Shipping Containers

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    Detection of human stowaways in cargo containers is an area of grave concern, and the proposed project will develop a sensor module for the detection of humans hidden within cargo shipping containers. Humans hiding in shipping containers are a threat to homeland security and detectors to reliably identify the presence of individual(s) will be extremely valuable. The proposed devices will rely upon ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. FASST Multimodal Biometric Screening

    SBC: SECURICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Multimodal biometrics for screening presents unique challenges. The evaluation of them presents even more challenges. The Securics team is leveraging 7 years of effort and past DARPA HID funding, on unique biometric evaluation approaches for measuring and comparing failure/performance predictions. The approach models what is important for a particular task and then learning the coefficients of the ...
