The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. A Wearable Toxic Chemical Sensor Badge

    SBC: DESIGN WEST TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: H-SB017.1-006

    Due to the high probability of exploiting common toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) as a weapon there is an increasing demand for rapid chemical detection technologies. A sensor that alerts the user of the presence of TICs independent of human interpretation is highly desirable. Furthermore, the sensor should be configurable as either a wearable badge or button so that it can be integrated as part ...

  2. Wearable Chemical Sensor Badge

    SBC: MORPHIX TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: H-SB017.1-006

    First responders such as law enforcement, fire department and emergency service personnel are subject to hazardous environments, including Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs). Protecting first responder and their long term health is a priority of the Department of Homeland Security. The objective of the proposed SBIR project is to develop a wearable chemical sensor badge capable of detecting at lea ...

  3. Wearable Liquid Crystal Based Chemical Sensor Badge for the Identification of Toxic Industrial Chemicals

    SBC: Platypus Technologies, LLC            Topic: H-SB017.1-006

    Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) pose significant dangers to human health upon exposure. Unfortunately, emergency responders are unwittingly exposed to these TICs while responding and containing crisis situations, leading increased risk for disease. To protect emergency responders against dangerous exposure to chemicals, Platypus Technologies will develop a wearable chemical sensor badge that c ...

  6. Advanced Indexing and Search for Efficient Information Discovery

    SBC: INFERLINK CORPORATION            Topic: 17 OATS-002

    Promoting the sharing of technical data between researchers is one of the most effective ways to advance technology development. As a result, there is a growing trend for research communities to develop websites with curated catalogs of data sets and tools. However, once a large number of resources have been collected, it can become challenging to maintain a centralized site so that potential user ...

  7. A Layered Service Provider/Customer Approach to Call Spoofing

    SBC: SECURELOGIX CORPORATION            Topic: H-SB017.1-003

    We are proposing a layered solution, which leverages the respective capabilities of both the service provider and a customer-managed solution. We will address spoofing and/or authentication of calls for a large number of scenarios. Our solution will reach a large number of users including mobile, government and enterprise. We will provide incremental value to "chip" away at the issue sooner rather ...

  8. A Versatile Wearable Chemical Sensor using Ultrasound gas sensing technology (CMUTs)

    SBC: Rahim, Chowdhury            Topic: H-SB017.1-006

    We will develop a compact solid-state gas sensor using a novel ultrasound technology called CMUTs, invented by renowned Stanford Professor B. Khuri-Yakub two decades earlier. Although its application in gas sensors was known for some time, its challenges have so far prevented its commercialization. Aromatix Technologies has identified solution to each of these challenges, which are the subjects of ...

  9. AlertPrime: Tokenizing WEA

    SBC: NAND Technologies, Inc            Topic: H-SB017.1-007

    Currently all callerID displays on all cell phones are totally unauthenticated. This means that with the right software or hardware voice spammers can impersonate any corporation, individual or location. Ultimately the solution to this problem is to update the 3GPP standards and require this field to be validated and authenticated. Until that time NAND Technologies proposes to use a combination of ...

  10. DARTS: Dismounted Adversary Recognition and Tracking System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: H-SB017.1-001

    Border Patrol Agents (BPAs) face multiple challenges when pursuing adversaries in difficult terrains. Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes to develop a novel target tracking and recognition system using a small UAV. Named "Dismounted Adversary Recognition and Tracking System" (DARTS), the UAV will have an advanced sensing, video processing, and autonomous flight control capabilities to fol ...
