  1. 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 ...

  2. Protection of SCADA Systems Using Physics-Based Authentication and Location Awareness Technologies

    SBC: DIGITAL AUTHENTICATION TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: HSB041008

    The integrated system proposed here by the DAT team includes the addition of access control points governed by DAT¿s strong authentication system. Such access control points involve minimum cost of deployment and should allow direct integration into existing legacy SCADA systems. The DAT system fuses 7 different credentials into an incalculable and continually dynamic authentication system. Altho ...

  3. Intrusion Detection and Security Monitoring of SCADA Networks

    SBC: Digital Bond, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Legacy SCADA systems, and the systems being sold today, lack the security required to prevent attacks. Intrusion detection systems (IDS) and security monitoring tools can work as compensating controls by identifying and stopping attacks. Unfortunately, existing security systems do not identify SCADA specific attacks. Our proposal will add SCADA specific knowledge to IDS and security monitoring too ...

  4. Affordable, Covert Power Grid Monitoring System

    SBC: Fieldmetrics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An advanced monitoring system is proposed to improve the security and reliability for the electric utility power grid. Next generation sensor platforms deployed across distribution and transmission systems will communicate in real-time with a central monitoring hub via a secure wireless network. The advanced monitoring system will provide a backup for existing SCADA systems and sensors in the even ...

  5. High Surface Area Titanium Oxide Nanostructures for Photo-catalytic Water Remediation

    SBC: Fractal Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Fractal Systems Inc responds to HSARPA needs for the development of novel alternate technologies to Cl2 in municipal water purification purposes. Our recent experience, in collaboration with our consultants Prof. Paul (University of South Florida/Aqua Virotech, and Prof. Valsaraj, Louisiana State University), indicates that the purification of E.coli using high surface area TiO2 can be performed b ...

  6. Marine Asset Security Monitoring and Tracking System

    SBC: Navigational Sciences, Inc.            Topic: HSB041005

    The worldwide ocean going freight transportation infrastructure, known as the Marine Transportation System (¿MTS¿) is the cornerstone of the global economic well-being. Approximately ninety percent of all cargo moves via the MTS. However, one need only look to the open movement of containerized cargo to find simple, effective, and efficient means of large-scale economic damage. The result is a c ...

  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. 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 ...

  10. Ultra-High Vacuum Compatible Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer

    SBC: PARALLAX RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    Parallax Research, Inc. proposes to develop an Ultra-High Vacuum Compatible Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer for use on Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopes, Transmission Electron Microscopes, Auger Spectroscopy Systems, and X-ray Photo-electron Spectroscopy Systems. We propose to build on Parallax's designs of innovative parallel beam x-ray spectrometers and incorporate new types ...
