  1. Low-cost and Rapid DNA Sequence for Biometric Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED LIQUID LOGIC            Topic: N/A

    A DNA sequencer for biometric applications will be developed. The system will enable rapid and low-cost identification of individuals and kinship verification using a self-contained and portable device. All process steps from DNA extraction to DNA sequencing will be automatically performed within the disposable single-use cartridge. This high-level of functional integration is made possible by Adv ...

  2. Screener Vigilance Detection Using Psychophysiological Sensors

    SBC: Archinoetics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Screening is a repetitive and often monotonous task, involving long periods of vigilance despite low occurrences of threat. Because of the nature of this task and the high consequence if a threat is missed, a screener`s vigilance and avoidance of operation during fatigue are critical to their job effectiveness. This proposal describes an integrated solution to monitoring vigilance levels in airpor ...

  3. A Certifiable Federated Identity System for Cross-Agency Collaboration

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Department of Homeland Security's charter has a fundamental requirement to collaborate with other government agencies. Secure collaboration on this scale requires strong identity management which can "vouch for" DHS personnel working with other agencies, and makes it possible to provide DHS resources to individuals in other agencies whose work requires it. We propose the development of a reu ...

  4. Intelligible Speech Communications with Robust Voice Operated Switch (VOX) Operation for High Noise Environments

    SBC: Broad Audio LLC            Topic: HSB092006

    First responders operate in challenging acoustic environments where noise, alarms, engines, radio communications, and communications to others in the environment make voice communications with hands-free, voice operated switch (VOX) operation difficult. Broad Digital will use a combination of passive acoustic design, noise suppression and subtraction, signal separation, and equalization to provide ...

  5. Web-Based Computer Simulation of Radiological Detection Scenario Training (RDST)

    SBC: Crisis Simulations International, LLC            Topic: N/A

    With the range and variety of radiation detectors that exist and the continuing threat of a radiological disaster in the future, the need for training of first responders and personnel in the front lines of interdiction is extraordinary and daunting. It is daunting because of the number of people across the nation that must be trained initially and who must continually maintain their training to b ...

  6. Wearable Thermoelectric Generators for First Responders

    SBC: Perpetua Power Source Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase I will model and physically demonstrate wearable, small factor, and lightweight thermoelectric generator prototypes powered by human body heat. The project will make use of Perpetua`s novel Flexible Thermoelectric Film technology to yield higher voltages and power from small active areas. End devices will be in wearable form factors, including a flexible button array that can be in ...

  8. 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 ...
