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. RadioNuclide Threat Tracking System (RNTTS)

    SBC: Deep Analytics LLC            Topic: HSB0181010

    The use of video surveillance on roadways, railroads, buildings and other structures is becoming pervasive in the U.S. With the preponderance of video security networks, it is logical to suspect that the capability of existing video security solutions can be enhanced by integrating information from other sensor modalities that detect and provide actionable information about invisible threats, such ...

  2. Fusion of VMS and Radiation Sensor Data for Real-Time Identification and Tracking

    SBC: Silverside Detectors Inc.            Topic: HSB0181010

    Traditionally, implementation of dedicated, continuous nuclear and radiological monitoring systems for identifying and tracking nuclear materials out of regulatory control is associated with high operational burdens. Although video and images from cameras are helpful in assessing threats, the raw, unstructured data require time-intensive human interaction to extract the relevant actionable informa ...

  4. Ground-Based Autonomous Robotic Inspection of General Aviation

    SBC: Heron Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181009

    Heron Systems proposes an autonomous UGV capable of dramatically improving the efficiency and scalability ofradiological scanning of General Aviation aircraft. The proposed system uses Clearpath Robotics' UGVs as a basis for mature, robust robotic design. The platform will be extended by MACE, the Heron Team's novel robotic system architecture, to support the integration of sensor solutions, optim ...

  5. Tracking Nuclear Threats in Security Camera Networks (TNT-SCAN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181010

    The implementation of continuous nuclear and radiological monitoring systems enabling the automatic detection and tracking of potential nuclear threats is traditionally associated with a high operational burden. Sensors typically have to be monitored by dedicated personnel, who must investigate detection events in a timely manner; however, high nuisance alarm rates can rapidly overwhelm already-ta ...

  6. Flexible, High-Frequency, High-Durability, and Multifunctional Sensor Film

    SBC: Newport Sensors Inc            Topic: 18OATS001

    DHS has an unmet need for measuring ultra-high-intensity, near-field blast overpressure caused by internal blast within a commercial aircraft explosive threat environment in order to facilitate characterization of blast effects to commercial aircraft structures.The goal of this DHS SBIR OATS project is to deliver advanced thin, flexible, conformable, multi-sensing-point film sensor technology for ...

  7. Mobile Network Resiliency Research and Development

    SBC: AKAMAI PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: 18OATS002

    There is a requirement to reduce the vulnerability of commercial voice and data networks. These vulnerabilities include cyber-attacks such as SS7, or that which would occur after an EMP event. The cellular network is also vulnerable to external monitoring and tracking. This effort will design, develop, and implement a resilient 4G LTE / First Net cellular capability. To accomplish this, the effort ...

  8. Rogue Base Station Situational Awareness Reseach and Development

    SBC: AKAMAI PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: 18OATS003

    There is a critical need to detect rogue cellular tower base stations (fake cell towers).Rogue towers are a growing threat to the national cellular phone infrastructure.Initial exploratory tests using 2G and 3G GSM detectors discovered illegal cellular activity in the National Capital Region.Our effort will use both fixed and mobile methodologies to geo-locate rouge cell towers.This process to be ...

  9. Shallow Water Bathymetric Survey Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 829

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Ship groundings can cause sever environmental damage to the delicate ecosystems such as coral reefs, seagrass beds, and beaches. At present, survey work is performed by hand – a method that is inefficient and difficult to perform reliably. Improved bottom survey tools are clearly needed to evaluate the extent and type of damage and assist in determining remediation efforts. ...

  10. Compact, Lightweight Open-Path Cavity Ringdown Spectrometry System for UAS Deployment

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: 841

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to miniaturize the patented, open-path cavity ringdown spectroscopy (CRDS) analyzer developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The resulting instrument will be used to measure the optical properties of aerosols aboard Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) in highly humidi ...
