  1. Miniature, Rugged Vacuum System for Portable Mass Spectrometers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: HSB0102002

    The Department of Homeland Security, the Military, and civilian first-responders have an urgent need for sensitive detectors of harmful materials such as biological and chemical warfare agents, toxic industrial chemicals, and explosives. Handheld instruments must be sensitive, be able to detect a wide variety of target compounds in a matter of seconds, reliably discriminate between innocuous and h ...

  2. Multi-Platform Program Analysis

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: HSB092004

    The current generation of advanced static-analysis tools find vulnerabilities by exploring all possible executions of a program as configured for a single platform. Phase I research confirmed that a significant number of platform-specific defects may be missed if analysis is restricted to a single platform. The next quantum leap in capability will be a system that will explore all executions for m ...

  3. Synthetic Biometric Image Generator

    SBC: International Biometric Group            Topic: HSB0101005

    Software capable of generating synthetic fingerprint, face, and iris images may provide tremendous value to DHS organizations, USG components, and commercial organizations involved in development, testing, and operation of biometric systems. Such software could support cost-effective performance evaluation of new algorithms, optimize the speed and accuracy of deployed biometric systems, and reduce ...

  5. Software Assurance Analysis and Visual Analytics

    SBC: APPLIED VISIONS, INC.            Topic: HSB092004

    To increase confidence that software is secure, researchers and vendors have developed different kinds of automated software security analysis tools. These tools analyze software for weaknesses and vulnerabilities, but produce massive data with many false positives. Further, the individual tools catch different vulnerabilities, often with little overlap. The NSA tested five static code analysis to ...

  6. Noise Cancellation for Voice Operated Switch (VOX) Communication

    SBC: LI Creative Technologies Inc.            Topic: HSB092006

    Effective communication between first responders is extremely important not only to accomplishing tasks but also to personal safety. However, because first responders usually work in a high-noise environment, the communication clarity is severely degraded. A variety of solutions to improve the communication efficiency have been tried, but none of them completely solve the problem. The purpose of ...

  7. SAMPLING SYSTEM FOR TRACE EXPLOSIVE PARTICLES AND VAPORS

    SBC: ENERTECHNIX, INC.            Topic: HSB081004

    Enertechnix proposes to develop a sampling system for trace explosive particles and vapors for vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) detection and related applications. Our approach combines forced air jets for dislodging particles and vapors from the vehicle surfaces, with concentration and collection of dislodged particles and scavenging of explosive vapors on artificially introduced ...

  8. Standoff Detection of VBIED and Suicide Bomber

    SBC: Energy Research Company            Topic: HSB072001

    Energy Research Company proposes the continued development of its proprietary technology, Laser Induced Acoustics (LIA), for standoff detection of VBIEDs and suicide bombers, and building a LIA based prototype suitable for high fidelity simulations. LIA uses a laser to interrogate a surface with the resulting acoustic signal indicating the presence of any explosive residues. In addition, we are us ...

  10. Novel Methods to Measure Penetrator Dynamics in Multi-Layer Geometries

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07011

    In Phase I of this effort we analyzed the structural response of a BLU 109 during typical penetration events. Based on these finite element results, we proposed and demsonstrated a simple robust concept for a passive penetrator sensor that identifies the material being penetrated and also correlates strongly with its underground trajectory. Such a sensor would obviously provide valuable informatio ...
