  1. Combined Cleaning and Guided Wave Inspection System for Hazardous Liquid Pipelines

    SBC: ULC Robotics, Inc.            Topic: 180PH2

    Pipeline operators employ cleaning tools for improving product throughput, inhibiting corrosion, and preparing their pipes for inline inspection. For many pipeline risk models, improving the scope and quality of input data is a long-term process. If the combined cost of pigging and inspecting was low and could be done simultaneously, pipeline operators would be encouraged to perform inspections mo ...

  2. Interference Detection and Analysis Device

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: HSB0181003

    Law enforcement and public safety agencies rely on the 700 MHz/800 MHz spectrum band which are affected by co-channel interference from the commercial radio networks along with unintentional as well as intentional radio frequency interferers (RFIs). The first responders need to be alerted or have prior knowledge of potential interferences at a mission site. This will enable them to adopt strategie ...

  3. Firmware Automated Analysis at Scale with Testing

    SBC: Red Balloon Security, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181008

    The firmware running on mobile, embedded, and Internet of things devices is often treated as a blackbox by organizations. These firmware images can contain a myriad of n-day vulnerabilities, both malicious and unintentional backdoors, and other unwanted functionality. Unfortunately, analyzing these firmware images is a difficult and time-consuming task as each firmware can be packed with layers of ...

  4. Improved Human Systems for Computed TomographySpeed of Image Review

    SBC: IDSS Holdings, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181006

    IDSS in partnership with Tufts University Human Factors Engineering Program, a leader in Engineering Phycology, proposes to study CT screening system operator burden and reduce image review time by reviewing the GUI and the current man-machine interaction, perform a cognitive and behavioral analysis of the interaction, perform a time an motion study and recommend and perform limited prototyping of ...

  5. Satellite Low-Shot Augmented Object Detection (SALSA)

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: NGA172002

    The recent widespread use of overhead sensors, and their ability to provide continuous streams of imagery for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, has generated a critical need for high-fidelity, automated object detection systems. For intelligence analysts, searching large volumes of imagery with vast spatial and temporal extent can be extremely time consuming and tedious ...

  6. NGAflix: a cloud-based adaptive bitrate video processing and distribution system

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: NGA181002

    The large volume of full motion video from unmanned aerial vehicles, along with other data from various sensors creates resource andengineering challenges in managing, processing and distributing that data. Law enforcement and intelligence work require videos in locationsfar from where they were recorded, and need multiple sensor streams to be synchronized for search, filtering, and transformation ...

  7. Low-Shot Alternate Viewpoint Analogies

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: NGA181008

    Overhead imagery analysts spend their time scouring aerial and satellite imagery looking for objects based on example images. Collectingexample imagery of our adversaries newest military hardware is often challenging. The only examples we have may be from open sourceintelligence at air shows or military parades or from limited clandestine collections. Often, only a small set of ground-based imager ...

  8. Combined Cleaning and Guided Wave Inspection System for Hazardous Liquid Pipelines

    SBC: ULC Robotics, Inc.            Topic: 180PH2

    Combined Cleaning and Guided Wave Inspection System for Hazardous Liquid Pipelines 3/20/2018 For this SBIR we will develop a machine vision system which uses onboard standard-resolution cameras in vehicles to identify and read barcode signs on the roadside. The proposed approach could provide a low-cost solution that make connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technology viable for rural areas ...

  9. Hybrid Prediction for Embedded Malware

    SBC: Red Balloon Security, Inc.            Topic: HSB0161003

    Predicting malware trends and designing defenses to defeat the next generation of malware is difficult but necessary in order to significantly increase the cost to attackers of developing malware and executing successful attacks. Without such malware trend predictions, we will continually be defending against yesterday's attacks and will remain unprepared for new threats. Embedded devices are beco ...

  10. Environmentally Neutral Electric Bike Share System

    SBC: INNOVATIVE DYNAMICS INC            Topic: 142OS1

    IDI is proposing an electrically assisted e-bike system, designed to increase the usage of bicycles for daily commuting. This design is intended for usage alongside traditional bike share programs in cities across the country. The primary benefit is attract those otherwise unwilling to use bicycles to commute, either due to personal reservation or perceived terrain difficulties. This is accomplish ...
