  1. WS-BD Conformant Handheld Multi-biometric Acquisition System

    SBC: Fulcrum Biometrics, LLC            Topic: 9010477TT

    Secure trusted biometric validation of identity has never been more important. The increase in global terrorism, unfettered identity theft and new legislation requiring multi-factor authentication are a few of the driving factors. The biometrics industry has not actively responded to the changing market conditions being driven by the explosion in mobile computing. Millions of new mobile devices ar ...

  2. Soil-Structure Interaction (SSI) Effects for Fully and Partially Buried Structures

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: DTRA122005

    Protection Engineering Consultants (PEC) proposes to develop a coarse-grain neural network modeling approach for efficient simulation of shock propagation through geological media including soil-structure interaction. In the coarse-grain approach, fast-running computational elements are developed which are an order of magnitude larger than typical FE elements, and the elements are driven by neura ...

  3. Remote Sensing of CWAs Using Color Changing Sensor Tags and RFID Detector

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: DTRA102006

    Rapid identification of these warfare modes, particularly Chemical Warfare Agents (CWAs), is vital to protecting U.S. armed forces personnel and their assets. Most quantitative and accurate methods for CWA identification utilize bulky and expensive equipment that require specific technical expertise for data collection and analysis. A major limitation to using existing detection equipment i ...

  4. Protective Superhydrophobic Coatings for Underwater Electronics

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: SOCOM13001

    Sensitive and expensive electronic equipment used in marine environments are generally subjected to harsh extremes. Component lifetimes are typically extended by physical isolation using bags, hard containers or with conformal impermeable coatings. However, over time, protective measures become compromised, the resulting exposure causing corrosion and short circuit-driven malfunctions. There is ...

  5. Secure Mobile Platform

    SBC: Crossfield Technology Llc            Topic: SOCOM13007

    Crossfield Technology LLC proposes the design and development of an Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) System on Chip (SoC) consisting of a hybrid CPU/GPU digital signal processor. The APU incorporates high-speed interfaces to external sensors and a NAND Flash Controller. The NAND Flash Controller implements XTS-AES-256 encryption commonly used for whole disk encryption, and can securely erase the ...

  6. Covert Optically-Reporting Threat-Functionalized Nanomaterials

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: DTRA122003

    The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and the U.S. Strategic Command Center for Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction (SCC-WMD) requires transformational materials technology to support the intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) of personnel and materials associated with weapons of mass destruction (WMD) development, manufacturing, and proliferation. Voxtel, Inc. proposes to fa ...

  8. High Efficiency, Large-area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A stable, well characterized InGaAs materials growth and photodetector fabrication process will be used to fabricate matched photodiodes optimized for balanced homodyne detection. The 1-mm-diameter p-i-n photodetectors will be manufactured back-illuminated with a 5-micron absorber, allowing residual light to reflect off the front-side metal to make a double pass through the active layer. Ultra-hig ...

  9. Efficient Low-Dark-Count Detector for Photon Counting

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Voxtel has demonstrated efficient high-speed photon counting with thresholded linear-mode avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers using multi-gain-stage InGaAs/InAIAs APDs. In contrast to Geiger APDs, thresholded photon-counting linear APD receivers are thought not to suffer afterpulsing, and can support maximum count rates (MCR) up to 2 or 3 orders of magnitude faster than Geiger APDs. However, the ...

  10. Standoff Detection of Nuclear Materials Using CNT-Based D2 Plasma Ion Source

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082004

    Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI) proposes to develop a novel neutron generator based on electron impact ionization from a carbon nanotube (CNT) electron source. Our proposed approach is aimed at providing significant advantages for man-portable or UAV deployment. It will provide significant advantages over existing neutron or gamma-ray sources in terms of size, weight and power efficiency without co ...
