  1. State-based Security Policies for Electric Power SCADAs

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: HSB041008

    ATC-NY and Bigwood Systems, Inc. will design and build Zebra, an innovative access control system for electric power SCADA systems. Access control decisions will depend on the dynamic state of the electric transmission/distribution system, in addition to conventional inputs such as identity. We will develop SCADA Access Control Language (SACL) as a means of establishing the policy to be enforced a ...

  2. A Novel, Low Power, High Throughput, High Efficiency, Scalable Electrostatic Bioaerosol Sampler

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: HSB041003

    Current bioaerosol monitoring strategies rely on inertia-based sampling and suffer from high power consumption and low efficiency limitations. In contrast, our overall objective is to design and demonstrate a novel electrostatic sampler that provides dramatic improvements including low power requirement (90% for 1-10mm), high viability (>80%), scalability for varying threat scenarios, low noise, a ...

  3. Real-time Malicious Code Detection in Network Traffic: The PAYL Payload Anomaly Detector

    SBC: CounterStorm, Inc. (formally System Detection, Inc.)            Topic: HSB042002

    This proposal, a collaboration between Columbia University and System Detection Inc., concerns the research of a new payload anomaly detector, we call PAYL, that has been demonstrated to detect malicious code in network traffic. The core concept is to statistically model normal content and detect anomalous packet content indicative of malicious exploit code. The approach is very fast to compute, i ...

  4. A New Generation of Collaborative Cross-domain Security Technologies: Worminator

    SBC: CounterStorm, Inc. (formally System Detection, Inc.)            Topic: HSB042001

    This proposal, a collaboration between Columbia University and System Detection Inc., concerns the research of a new collaborative, cross-domain security system, which we call Worminator, to detect and prevent the exploitation of and attack against networked computer systems, especially those critical to the nation¿s infrastructure. The core concept is to deploy a number of strategically placed s ...

  5. Cargo Container Tracking and Monitoring System (C2TMS)

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    International Electronic Machines Corp. (IEM), a leader in sensor and GIS technology, will design and prove the feasibility of a Cargo Container Tracking and Monitoring System (C2TMS) which will: uniquely ID each and every container, track container positions to within one foot or less under all conditions using unique, innovative RF localization and digital processing techniques, categorize and t ...

  6. Detecting Ricin with Engineered Sensor Switches

    SBC: APTAMATRIX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    OrthoSystems, Inc. creates switchable molecular sensors for bioterror agents and other targets. In this project our OrthoSwitchTM technology platform will be used to develop a rapid diagnostic device for detecting ricin in solution. OrthoSwitchesTM are custom designed molecular sensors that function in the absence of a separation step or attachment to a solid-support. In contrast to antibody-based ...

  7. CMOS FET and AlGaN MODFET Receptor Scaffold for Molecular Recognition and Direct Detection

    SBC: Peterson Ridge LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project is designed to test a novel receptor scaffold/sensor combination for the selective and direct measurement of antigens and to compare direct electric detection of antigens against the corresponding antibody based ELISA method. The scaffold concept combines a robust nucleic acid receptor (aptamer) coupled to a low cost CMOS FET and AlGaN MODFET transducer. Aptamers are short nucleic aci ...

  8. Marine Asset Tag Using Near Field Electromagnetic Ranging

    SBC: Q-Track Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose a Marine Asset Tag Tracking System (MATTS) using a breakthrough wireless tracking technology called near field electromagnetic ranging (NFER¿). The primary objective of Phase I is to validate that NFER¿ technology is the best RF solution for tracking containers on ships and in ports. Phase I will also (1) develop an overall architecture for the MATTS; (2) design the container tag; ...

  9. Crypto-Secure Remote Terminal Unit for New and Retrofit Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition

    SBC: THE RIGHT STUFF OF TAHOE, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop an integrated Cryptography Module (CM) and RTU (CMRTU) for SCADA applications. When used in CM mode, our CMRTU will be easily retrofitted into existing SCADA networks. When used in advanced RTU mode (where higher bandwidth connections are available), our CMRTU will provide both a secure gateway function and secure Internet protocols for interaction with either central monitor ...

  10. Phage Derived Receptor Scaffold

    SBC: WELD STAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The risk of biological terrorism is significant because of the high potency, widespread availability, and ease of dissemination of some biological threat agents. The earliest recognition of a bioterrorist attack may be indicated only by the clinical manifestation of the intended disease which, in some cases, can take days to weeks to present itself. Furthermore, laboratory confirmation of the diag ...
