  1. Development, Validation, and Implementation of CMC Algorithm into a Software Platform for Firearm Analysis

    SBC: Cadre Research Labs (Illinois) LLC            Topic: NA

    The research involves implementation of a comparison algorithm for firearm forensics. The Congruent Matching Cells (CMC) algorithm and its associated CMF, CMPS, and CMX methods have been developed by NIST yet do not appear in any commercially available software. As requested in the call for proposals, we will implement the algorithms in the C++ programming language, we will validate their performa ...

  2. Group 2 (<55lbs) Unmanned Aerial System for Special Operations Forces Tactical-Level Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance Operations

    SBC: Knight Technical Solutions, LLC            Topic: SOCOM172005

    The proposed Group 2 UAS is a long endurance fixed wing aircraft, a secure communications system and a portable ground station. The light weight aircraft features a high aspect ratio wing and is powered by an electric ducted fan for maximum efficiency. The modular aircraft system is one man portable and designed to be packed out on a molle backpack configuration. The conceptual airframe design ...

  3. System for Nighttime and Low-Light Face Recognition

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM18A001

    The objective of this proposal is to develop instrumentation and algorithms for acquiring facial features for facial recognition in low- and no-light conditions.We will use cross-spectrum matching by exploiting infrared polarimetric imagery which tends to show features that match more closely visible imagery than conventional infrared.In addition to thermal infrared, we will also test subjects in ...

  4. Innovative CubeSat Payloads for USSOCOM Space Missions

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM17003

    Small satellites have proven capable and cost effective, and innovative payloads and technologies will expand the mission space that CubeSats can support. ATA proposes to build a CubeSat-sized laser communications prototype payload, adapting high photon efficiency optical communications techniques to achieve data transfer rates up to 100 mega-bits per second (Mbps) with the small apertures require ...

  5. Design and Realization of a Dual Function OCM/MPM for Imaging TEMPs

    SBC: Distant Focus Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Regenerative medicine is an emerging, interdisciplinary field that will result in new engineered medical products. The introduction of a high-resolution, non-destructive imaging technique that is capable of penetrating deeply into the highly-scattering scaffold medium has the means to accelerate the development and commercial utilization of these novel materials. Multi-photon microscopy (MPM) is b ...

  6. Automated Feature Extraction Capabilities for the Development of High-Resolution GEOINT Feature Data and Constructing Correlated Databases

    SBC: CG2, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06012

    Our solution to the automated feature extraction problem will leverage the material properties that can be inferred from combining multispectral imagery with high resolution elevation data or LIDAR data using a trainable knowledge base. Multiple imaging bands provide a more complete picture of the material involved than ordinary RGB. This can help distinguish between a green grass lawn and a gre ...

  7. Individual Cooling Equipment

    SBC: R*BAT, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06009

    Special Operations forces (SOF) operate in all weather conditions. It has identified a need for a micro-cooling system that can be vehicle mounted and man-portable, as well as provide a capability to cool vehicle mounted communications and electronics equipment. To meet the needs of SOF the system must be small, lightweight, quiet, low power, and gasless. We propose a compact micro-cooling system ...

  8. Low-Cost, Networked, Disposable Chemical Sensor

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: SOCOM05010

    There is an acute need for a networked chemical sensor that is inexpensive enough to allow it to be treated as a disposable item - deployed and left in-place until the end of its useful life, or until operations move out of communications range. Electrochemical microarray sensors can be fabricated at low enough unit cost to make the development of a disposable sensor node feasible. These sensors ...
