  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. High Quantum Efficiency Fast Detectors for Readout of Scintillators for Gamma Ray Detection

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: HSB062007

    High quantum efficiency (QE), fast (

  5. Covert Modular Situational Awareness Monitor

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM05010

    A need exists for inexpensive, disposable, broadcast capable chemical / explosive-compound sensors that also provide site weather conditions. The state-of-the-art does not meet the need described both in terms of CWA sensor cost/size and lack of a low-cost deployment system. ADA proposes under this three-phased SBIR program to develop a system comprised of a suite of covert, modular, lightweight ...

  6. Conformal Appliqué Antennas for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Aircraft

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: SOCOM06002

    Current methods of transmitting low-frequency RF energy from airborne platforms involve antennas such as blades that are electrically inefficient and a place a large aerodynamic burden on the airframe. SOCOM desires a method of efficiently transmitting low-frequency energy (VHF-UHF) at high power levels from airborne platforms. The desired gain numbers (-2 to 0 dB) at these frequencies would requi ...

  7. Vertical Wind Profile Data Collection Using Laser Technology on Unmanned Delivery Platforms.

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM04007

    The current project will develop and demonstrate a prototype compact, power-efficient all-fiber lidar unit for wind profiling on board UAV's and other aircraft. The system leverages Oceanit's current fiber-laser based lidar development efforts. A unique design provides a rugged system with no moving parts and little maintenance requirements. Efforts in the current project will include prototype s ...

  8. Automated Detection and Cueing

    SBC: PERCEPTEK            Topic: SOCOM06001

    The single most effective method to thwart security threats posed by people with hostile intent is to detect their presence early. Unfortunately, large scale standoff detection of humans is difficult. Various sensors, including still and video cameras, have been designed and applied to human detection, however, to date a person is required to be in the detection loop since robust, automated detect ...

  9. MOCA: Monitoring of Crowd Activities

    SBC: SECURICS, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06014

    The MOCA project will develop a network-enabled DSP+FPGA-enhanced image-intensified embedded system for self-contained low-power monitoring of crowds in open and in complex urban terrain. The Phase I effort will develop new algorithms explicitly for crowd management, rather than building on the traditional intelligent video surveillance algorithms that are focused on isolated targets in motion. P ...
