  1. Pedestrian Auto Enforcement Program (PAEP)

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 122FH3

    We propose an innovative Pedestrian Automotive System for Enforcement and Safety (PASES) that combines commercial-off-the-shelf video or camera components and state-of-the-art microwave(radar) systems with sophisticated software that will not only provide more effective enforcement through effective evidentiary information, but will also enable predictive actions based on vehicle and pedestrian be ...

  2. Improved Decision Support Tools for State of Good Repair

    SBC: VIASIM            Topic: 131FT2

    Every asset ages. Pipes, roads, computers, cars, etc. This fact is inevitable. And, as a result of the aging process, every asset suffers a degradation in its intended capability or performance over time. Yet every day, millions of people in the U.S. get up in the morning expecting that they will be able to travel to work, drink clean water, use the Internet, and so on. It usually takes a catastro ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. High Speed Imaging Spectropolarimeter for Dynamic Samples

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 9020663R

    Spectroscopic ellipsometry is recognized as the gold standard in noncontact characterization of the refractive index and thickness of a thin optical film or film stack on a substrate. However, it suffers from a number of shortcomings, perhaps the most important of which is the time required to perform a single measurement. Moreover, manufacturers are interested in comprehensive evaluation of thin ...

  5. Prediction of Equivalent System Temperature: A Computer Methodology

    SBC: Applied Data Trends, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a global trend towards utilization of satellite communications for information services. Equivalent system temperature, Ts, is a significant parameter in quantifying the antenna system/link performance, because it represents the noise power spectral density in antenna system figures-of-merit, such as receiver gain/system temperature (G/T), and end-to-end Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR). Unf ...

  6. Software Tools for Static Analysis of Pointer Usage

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Mistakes made by programmers in the use of pointer variables and dynamic memory allocation is a significant cource of software errors. The development of a suite of tools to aid in the detection of these errors is addressed. These tools will operate both statically and dynamically in order to provide as wide a range of services as possible. The static tool will guarantee that certain pointer ba ...

  8. An Expert System for Aquaculture Environment Control

    SBC: Ortech Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will explore the use of a fuzzy logic based expert system in a closed loop control system for nitrate removal (denitrification) from large aquaculture systems. Nitrate is naturally generated by the bio-mass in any aquatic system. Current techniques for the control of nitrate levels are almost exclusively based on water exchange. For large ...

  9. Data Compression Techniques for Portable Computing Environments

    SBC: Fastman, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The capability to transmit digitized reports to rear echelon forces during an ongoing battle is a critical command and control component. However, projections of the amount of digital traffic over transmissions links raise the distinct possibility that the demand for digital information tranmitted across the battlefield will outstrip channel capacity. Being able to reduce the quantity of traffic ...

  10. Optical Security System using Phase Encrypted Identification Codes in a Joint Transfor Optical Correlator Verification & Validation

    SBC: SY TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I effort will ascertain the practical aspects of assemblin g a cost-effective, reliable, compact optical security system using phase-encryption of identification data in conjunction with phase- and/or amplitude-encoded biometric signatures and develop a preliminary design and demonstration plan for Phase II. For this Phase I effort, we will use fingerprints as the primary biometric iden ...
