  1. 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 ...

  2. Principled Security Analysis of the Firmware Binaries via Guaranteed Formal Verification and Scalable Dynamic Monitoring

    SBC: Sekurity LLC            Topic: HSB0181008

    Consequently, to protect the mobile/IoT platforms against complex security attacks, there is a need for effective analysis of mobile/IoT firmware. Such a solution is currently missing in the market. In this DHS SBIR effort, we will develop BINSEC, a mobile/IoT firmware binary security analysis framework. To ensure acceptable scalability, usability, and universality across different firmware binary ...

  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. Memory Instrumentation and Performance Simulation (MIPS)

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172003

    Next-generation high-performance computing (HPC) hardware, such as the Intel Xeon Phi Knights Landing Many-Integrated-Core processor, provide new deep memory architectures that offer the promise of increased performance. The challenge in taking full advantage of this architecture is selecting which data structures will be placed in the high-bandwidth memory. Optimizing data structure placement in ...

  6. A Robust, Machine Independent, Software Toolkit for Topology Aware Process Mapping on Distributed Memory HPC Architectures

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: DTRA172002

    A significant performance gap exists between the theoretical number of Floating Point Operations (FLOPS) that a HPC machine is capable of sustaining and the number of FLOPS realized by real-world HPC applications. One of the principle reasons for this gap is the parasitic work that computational processes must do to communicate with one another. It has been shown that this communication work can b ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. The Characterization and Mitigation of Single Event Effects in Ultra-Deep Submicron (< 90nm) Microelectronics

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07005

    Orora Design Technologies proposes to develop electronic design automation (EDA) tools employing minimally invasive circuit design-based methods to mitigate single event effects (SEEs) for next generation Ultra-DSM CMOS (

  10. Agent Defeat using a DWA Accelerator

    SBC: Brookhaven Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08008

    A new type of compact induction accelerator currently under development at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) promises to increase the average accelerating gradient by at least an order of magnitude over that of existing induction machines. The machine is based on the use of high gradient vacuum insulators and advanced dielectric materials and switches. The system, called the Diel ...
